The Mysterious Mr. Enter / Jonathan Rozanski's "Growing Around" - IndieGoGo Campaign Failed, John going off the deep end

Tragedy of the Senate

So Enter is the one to blame for the ugly colorschemes most characters have, I thought Ava was the one coming up with designs from what Enter described to her
Remember, Enter wants full control over Growing Around. If he doesn't make a base design for a character, it doesn't get a pass. I like how he's appointed himself as character designer, writer, director and producer and yet can't do a single one of those.

A tad more from the server today. Apparently Enter's not "fully recovered" yet. Recovering from what exactly, I don't know.

John is recovering from getting his ass blasted on twitter and finding out that he has a Kiwifarms thread.

I wonder why he didn't react to KF when he was considered worthy of having his own forum here before it was all moved to the spergatory.
That's the part that really confuses me: everyone in that server is getting so incredibly nervous at just having a mere mention in this thread, when previously there was an entire subforum dedicated to him.

This is quite literally nothing by comparison.

lolwut? So, even in his fantasy land he's still a loser and lolcow?
Maybe it's supposed to act as a small bit of self-deprecation and self-awareness, like how other creators like Tartakovsky, McCracken, Atoms, et al. have inserted themselves into their cartoons as literal-whos and useless people? Of course the problem there is that the whole point of that bit is that they are established creators making fun of themselves, whereas Enter still is a literal-who by industry standards.

But if Enter's an adult in his world...who's taking care of him? Remember, adults aren't allowed to live by themselves.

Nope, he micromanages all the art. And the official artists aren't allowed to deviate from his designs, either, hence why that stupid pony looks like a fucking cow. Or why every piece of official art looks like a disaster, but the fanmade stuff can look shockingly good. Just look at those recent pictures on the last page as proof. Even Ava's fanart looks better than all the official stuff she draws.

It goes to show how doomed Enter's project is when he has to micromanage every element. Like theoretically the show has enough to sustain the length Enter wants, it will crash and burn instantly given how Enter will micromanage or scrap concepts if he doesn't like them which could fuck up progress especially with how horribly managed his Youtube channel is.

Hmm, who does that remind me of...?

The only difference is Enter probably doesn't diddle underage girls, but at the rate we're going even that is a plausible assumption.

Anyone else think that fanart of the girl looks like armpit-fetish porn?

True... but how many "Simpsons" episodes don't have the Simpsons in them? How many "Hey Arnold" episodes don't have Arnold in them? Even if your main characters aren't always the main focus, they should still play a significant role in most episodes. Whenever "Growing Around" focuses on a side character, it's like the Dunns don't even exist.

Here comes the debate of "episodic vs. serialized" again, and at the risk of sperging, MLP was never serialized. While it's true there are drastic changes to the status quo every once in a while, it's usually just serves as a framing device for more episodic stories. Twilight becomes a princess? Now we get some episodes about her princess duties. Magical friendship map from nowhere? A convenient way to send the cast on episodic quests. Build a school? Have some episodes about the school.

"Episodic" doesn't mean "no continuity" or "unbreakable status quo." It just means you can watch the show in any order and still get a full story out of each episode, albeit with the occasional "Who is this?" or "Since when did they...?" question. When I think "serialized," I think of shit like South Park Season 20, where it's all a single continuous story; the end of one episode and the start of the next might as well be a commercial break. The fucking "Green Eggs and Ham" cartoon is more serialized than MLP.

"Episodic" doesn't mean "no continuity" or "unbreakable status quo." It just means you can safely watch the show in any order and still get a full story out of each episode, albeit with the occasional "Who is this?" or "Since when did they...?" question. When I think "serialized," I think of shit like South Park Season 20, where everything is one story; the end of one episode and the start of the next might as well be a commercial break.

To go off that, how many cartoons reference older episodes or do the whole "trip down memory lane" schtick. That's still arguably continuity.
