Does he rape his mother too?
Chris-chan had a hard on for Knuckles, Knuckles, and Knuckles????
>Joins in illustrating and writing archie sonic
>Claims he owns the IP
>Gets sued by Sega for using their IP
Is this guy retarded?
That's technically not what happened
You're technically not what happened.
>That's technically not what happened
Oh hey, it's a contrarian trying to cause trouble to cream his pants over it.
Take your meds.
Oh, so you are autist to boot.
What happened was basically
>signs Archie's contract saying that Sega owns the rights to the characters he creates
>learns that Archie misplaced the contract
>lie about never having signed one, meaning his characters are his property
>Archie's photocopy of the contract is not legal proof he signed it so he kind of gets away with it
>"kind of" means that he's blacklisted from everything for being a colossal cock and scammer and that Sega could easily destroy him in court if they cared enough about his shitty Knuckles recolors to actually want them
we actually got the court case and it's more
>Acrchie and Sega did not want to get into a legal battle for too long with this retard so settled and was just okay with NEVER using the characters he created again.
The documents are online now and reading them, it seems a lot was exaggerated plus it doesn't sound as good as "retard now own's sonic oc's"
Right, it's more like the battle is too expensive for what they're worth. Sega may have seen it as an opportunity to appropriately cut the fat of American OCs and plot lines to redirect and start fresh with something more on brand. Which isn't to say thar Flynn wasn't doing his best to salvage everything in that direction, it was just too little too late. One too many Iron Walrus stories.
>plus it doesn't sound as good as "retard now own's sonic oc's"
Even then it wasn't versed like that - as the settlement was along the lines of
>We don't recognize his claim of ownership and dismiss it as invalid
>But we also are not going to press charges if he decides to profit off of the characters he claims to own
Seeing how Penders has yet to make a single dime off his crap, it isn't exactly working in his favour and he is the only one to blame due to being a lazy piece of shit.
>Seeing how Penders has yet to make a single dime off his crap, it isn't exactly working in his favour and he is the only one to blame due to being a lazy piece of shit.
All he has to do is throw some cash to a few people on fiver to help him get a draft going if he really gave a shit about these characters. I guess they only really mean anything to HIM and that without the existing framework of an already created universe to bounce ideas off of, work ideas into and continually get a creative spark from [even if it turns into a feedback loop as it does with most creators] he isn't talented/motivated enough to build something from the ground up. Which is probably indicative of the level of his storytelling.
he scavenges from Byrne
Lots of people do. But that you can so clearly identify it is troubling.
>Hires to write for a established corporate IP
>Claim personal ownership over the whole thing
No, he's based beyond belief
I'm sure his bank account reflects that
He's essentially Evil Don Rosa. Both claim ownership over what they did. The difference is that Rose insists that there is no Scrooge without he and Barks' work and should therefore be considered his creator, like how other comic book authors are credited as the creators of characters; even if they don't OWN the characters. Penders, however, believes he should OWN the characters wholesale; copyrighted design be damned.
>The difference is that Rose insists that there is no Scrooge without he and Barks' work and should therefore be considered his creator,
Rosa only says this about Barks. He does not elevate his own work to that level. Might have thought like that during his time working on the comics, maybe, but not these days.
you forgot the part where he won
No. Those were his characters. He made them. He should technically own the right to them.
>He made them.
One of his 'protected IP's' is literally just an evil Sonic in a black leather jacket.
Seethe Penders is a hero, stay mad looser.
Are you the real Cybershell? I love your videos!
Penders is far cleverer and more cunning than Chris-Chan could ever hope to be.
So this guy is a virgin, right? I can’t imagine a world where he fucks an actual person. He’d be the type to only be able to nut to sonic feet or something.
He's a father. He's not like Chris chan. Anons are just retards so everybody has to be Chris chan
Imagine being known as the kid of "that autist that sperged and blatantly lied in court to be allowed to keep some fucking Sonic ocs". Fuck, if your dad publicly shat himself in the middle of your school you'd at least be able to move to another city and have it all get ignored.
Better yet - his son and niece were 'cast' in that abysmal Sonic Live shitshow of a comic.
>Imagine your dad got a job on a huge comic and won a court case to keep the rights to his concepts or some shit
Oh now how could I live with myself.
I fucking can't stand the man and think all of his work is fucking abysmal but this kiwi farms shit is so gay. So much retarded fanfiction out there about the bloke the rest of the comic too
He isn't even married to his "wife," and her kid doesn't use his last name.
Ken is legitimately more talented than Ian Flynn though. Flynn just tries harder to stick to the source material.
>Ken is legitimately more talented than Ian Flynn though.
Lulz. Even as far as his failed single-issue Magnum Opus went, Penders would shoop a bunch of photographs to avoid drawing backgrounds more complex than a concrete slab or a simple house.
>blocks your path
He's not actually mentally retarded, just an out of touch boomer.
He's more like Linkara than Chris Chan. He's deeply egotistical and vastly over estimates his talent, but he's not as pathetic as Chris.
Who draws this and goes "Yes, this artstyle is appealing and not at all horrifying."
I just love how he could draw people just fine but just never sat down to lean how to draw furrys even though he worked on the biggest furry comic
I'm glad /toon/ is smart enough to understand that despite both being in Sonic's orbit and obsessed with OCs, Penders really isn't much like CWC. Penders is a different brand of interesting because he's a would-be paperback genre-fiction writer who ended up working on kid's comics and setting his anchor from that.
It's like Cameron's Avatar, which I best heard described as looking like something from a 90's European point and click adventure game from the 90s. There's just no consideration for aesthetics, it's just trying to make a weird middle ground between aliens ,humans, and a few other elements but leaning largely to manifesting these really photorealistic faces on them. It's got the same uncanny feel of 80's/90's sci-fi/fantasy illustrations where the artists didn't really know how to depict fictional races without making them some sort of human, but rendered the fuck out of them .
I feel like you are insulting the games by comparing them to Penders and Avatar, which ones do you mean?
Just random 90's Eurojank software done in the early days of 3D software. A lot were done by people who were learning as they were going.
You're right that it's sort of insulting because a lot of those are quite soulful all things considered. But Pender's art feels like someone just took home CGI software from 1998 and didn't know what he was doing.
>The traced Anthony Mackie.
My guess is that he has legitimate brain damage or even some kind of congenital brain defect. Lack of self-awareness and inability to conceive of one's actions from an outside perspective are pretty common in people with severe mental instability and mental illness.
Rob Liefeld and Bum Tickley eventually learned to draw better. They literally grew up, learned to try harder, faced their faults, and worked towards improving. Guys like Chris-chan and Penders are likely fully incapable of ever doing that because they can't perceive their own faults and can't even begin to understand how other people can see a problem with what they do.
Penders is an ok draftsman, if anything he gotten worse. Problem is he has no real eye for aesthetics and when you start making inhuman characters you really need to make them pleasing to the eye as to not hit the uncanny Valley.
Furries, for whatever people want to hate about them, tend to have decent grasps of cohesive aesthetics. At least popular furry artists compared to Penders. Pender’s problem is that he isn’t a furry, he has no idea how to ,and these characters attractive.
There are teenage artists who haven't been alive for as long as Penders has been a professional artist who are already better draftsmen, artists, designers, and storytellers. He's got no excuse.
There's a ton of teenage artists that are better than any boomer artists or even millennial artists from just 15 years ago. The last 10 years have created a larger wave of young artists who are better than probably any other point in history besides the days of the old masters who raised painters from childhood to master painting. All these kids with tablets since age 7 blow decades of older artists away before they're 24.
I feel like his old art used to look better even though it wasn't the best.
I agree. Either he's just lazier now or he got worse over time.
Ken Penders could never get his weird comic idea of science fantasy Native Americans fighting a mad scientist from the future published by anyone, so he slowly started working his plot ideas into the Knuckles comics.
>science fantasy Native Americans fighting a mad scientist from the future
I'm pretty sure those were the Japanese.
(I'm not a big conoisseur of 90s comics)
That's from his "The Lost Ones" comic. I have saved all the scans that were storytimed here, but I don't know if there is a point to storytime it again.
I storytimed it here https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/131979414/#131979414 , pages are still loading up. Basically, it was Ken Penders' attempt at releasing his own comic under Image. It was cancelled after a single issue due to - surprisingly enough - lack of interest from comic book readers.
There is only 1 Chris-Chan and a sea of "like-minded individuals" that do equally horrid shit like him
Ken Penders is just a douche who tried to cheat his employers and won only because his employers saw no value in keeping him or his characters around
This. The irony is that Penders is what Chris-chan believes his own life should be like. Pender's being "The Chris-Chan Who Succeeded" is something only Chris-Chan would believe.
Right, he's just generally has the fanfic writer's dream job. Ultimately his unbridled passion project falls flat because he's not that good at being a writer; he needed that existing framework to operate in. Without that it's clear that he just fucking sucks.
Chris cares about Sonic. Kenders couldn't give less of a shit about him outside of sonic fans paying attention to him
I fucking knew this was Penders. I don't even know what he looks like and didn't look at the background characters. Based off of OP alone on a whim I guessed. Wow. Looks exactly how you'd expect.
In Ken's case, removing his trademark pedostache only made him look more like a pedo.
Penders being equated to Chris Chan is the most braindead take I've seen too often. Penders got around in the industry and has a stable family despite his wildly tone-deaf decisions. Sometimes I wonder if Chris could dress himself.
They're overweight unkempt unattractive poor writers obsessed with the Sonic fandom. That's enough similarities for people to draw the conclusion. It's how the human mind works. May be braindead but you can see how people connect the dots.
The problem is ALL EU Sonic shit is garbage fanfiction nonsense.
Ken is hardly the only problem.
Has Penders posted anything new about his echidna book? I could swear the last time he posted a page was like 2014 or something.
Artistic creation takes time
Sounds like it's either an excuse to procrastinate or he's so far up his own ass about his "vision" of his series and characters and events and timelines that only mean something *him* that he can afford to sit on his ass working at a glacial pace. Maybe he wants to ape the media and presentation Homestuck had since his own art is falling flat.
Not even close. Ken Penders is the only person who knew how to evolve sonic past it's childish narrative and evolve it into true literary art. He knew the next logical step was to move away from Sonic to the more at the time, popular character Knuckles. We would all be better of if Sega actually read his books and made games around his stories. They already did it with Sonic Chronicles. Sega is on its way out the door if they don't change course soon.
Did you have a stroke?
>All that shit happened because of a single character in a game
he's possibly the one human being on the planet who manages to look more like a pedophile clean shaven than with a mustache
