Man, I wish Pizzacake would join Lemmy.

[-] [email protected] 107 points 5 months ago

Seriously. Her and Hollering Elk were some mainstays on the old place.

[-] [email protected] 63 points 5 months ago

Yep. I'm a patron of Elk and it's always disheartening to see them ask everyone to boost it on reddit. I understand it's their best platform, but it'd be nice for other platforms to also be utilized. I mostly just don't see Pizzacake anymore unless I open instagram.

Did you send a patreon message asking about it? Might mean more coming from a dedicated fan.

[-] [email protected] 25 points 5 months ago

Oh man, Hollering Elk, that's another I sorely miss. She's fucking epic.

I def wish more artists(like Pizzacake) would join. I check r/comics often on Libreddit and its nice to see them interact and a good way to find new underrated creators.

Curse seasonal colour analysis and all of its surprising accuracy! I don't want to be a bright spring, I want to be goth!

You live your best life in that blue dress kid and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Maybe you can be a navy blue goth? It could work!

[-] [email protected] 11 points 5 months ago

Pretty much my strategy so far

[-] [email protected] 12 points 5 months ago

are you a white-and-gold goth or a blue-and-black goth …

Mum is right about the colour, but we need more long dresses in the world, we really do.

I don't know anything about this Pizzacake person, but I don't think this specific comic is any worse than the average newspaper gag strip, except they wouldn't tackle a subject like this. It didn't make me laugh, but I also wouldn't call it awful. I'd definitely read this over literally any Dilbert strip ever.

Uhhh what is going on in the comments? Who is Pizzacakecomic? And why almost everyone here hate them?

[-] [email protected] 20 points 5 months ago

Pizzacake is a popular comic artist over on Reddit. She gained popularity mostly because she is extremely active in the comments of all of her posts. She is constantly chatting and attempting to make friends.

As for why she is disliked, there's a few reasons.

The one she sites the most is sexism though there isn't actually a lot of evidence of this outside of her own testimony.

Another is that she won't stop talking about how people who don't like her are sexist. She's made multiple comics about how her critics don't read her comics and just dislike them due to woman.

Her jokes also tend to be the easiest possible punchline for every joke. this has a kinda weird double effect because it means that her comics are extremely applicable to most people because they are generic enough that you can fit most of them into most situations. On the flip side, if you don't like one the comics... You probably won't like any of them... They're all similar enough to be mostly indistinguishable other than the topic itself. along that same train of thought, if you like one... You'll probably like them all.

As for my own opinion, I don't really care one way or the other. She's fine. I've heard accusations of her paying for likes on Reddit for promoting her own comics and so on but honestly I haven't seen any proof myself so I can't confirm or deny any of those.

I think it means the natural colors of your body (skin, hair, eyes) are best complemented by "dark autumn" colors, so dark reds/oranges.
