Why I hate Sandy

Posted by OneGrumpyLumpy - March 1st, 2024


Hate is a strong word but it makes for a good title.


I bring this topic up a lot on twatter but because that site is an absolute mess and people on there headcanon real life and don't listen, I figured it would be better to post an explanation here where I can fully explain myself.


Sandy is probably most popular character despite how little I draw her, at least on twitter. I drew her in 2021 as an inside joke between me and Saltynoodles along the lines of "twitter artists will jack it to anything, I bet they'd get hard for a cockroach girl." When it actually came time to draw her, I kept adding more segments. Cockroach became Isopod and Isopod became Centipede.


I posted her and people really liked it, which was pretty funny to me at the time because it meant I was right. I like to stroke my ego and think this makes me one of the few people to successfully force a meme, even if it was restricted to an extremely niche part of the internet. One time I got commissioned to draw her in a maid outfit and it made it onto rule34.xxx. It was rated as "questionable"

As for why I don't draw her, no matter how many times I try to explain myself I see people twist it as me being "bewildered by her popularity" (despite the fact she was made to be bait). The real answer is simple.


I got tired of the joke.


That's it really. I had my fun and didn't want my notifications to be filled with "would" or "hear me out" or "zamn" or that stupid American Dragon screenshot. If you followed me around 2020/2021 during the peak of among us' popularity you know how quickly I tire of seeing the same tired old joke and I tired of this one too.


I probably will draw her again at some point but man the reaction (even if its technically positive) sucks the life out of me. I can't stand being the center of attention.


Fuck you, Sandy

Centipede would pain in ass especially draw spikes not just tail, but maybe muscle hands or something i draw other OC of last year, but worse how rendered all them. Other problem of Sandy is maid outfit fetish.

Did you know all your pic of Sandy now on russian sites us well such us reactor? Like sshhish.
(my pic of adventure time fanart got reposted cause people noticed on pixiv)

It's worth noting that the design is just pretty cool from a non-NSFW perspective, but yeah I get it. Some people are so extremely unfunny in making it clear what they enjoy.

"hmm yes this is unconventional...but I ENJOY IT???? WOWIE ZOWIE GUYS DOESN'T THAT MAKE ME SO WACKY AND ZANY DUDE LMAO"

I understand the frustration as to the unneeded popularity to what is clearly a joke character, but I do think that she can be used in a way to make her more cool. The centipede traits has so much potential for powers and abilities that she'd be fitting as a anti-hero

I mean her design always terrified me because centipedes freak me out so I'm not complaining about seeing less of her.

I get the frustration, but even if it's a joke character, as Bundeluxe pointed out, the design is cool regardless. And I agree! I guess it's because I like monsters/insects and such. Sorry if you had to deal with any annoying folks, twitter is a cesspool.

Centipedes make my skin crawl, yet I still can't help but think this is a really cool design and a good joke idea too. It's a shame social media has to beat it to death though.

It sucks that the repetitive jokes ruined this character for you but I think it's still good character design my guy! Heck I never thought of her to be an NSFW character when I first saw her, always thought she was another unique oc you made.
At the end of the day though we can all agree that Twitter sucks.

Genuinely sorry this went this way.

allergic to success

I think I am. It was like this with the Big Lez retrospective too...
