Ryan’s edition is coming tomorrow—I just wanted to post this while it was done. I attempted a different lighting that I might change once I have both parts completed.
SHANE MADEJ PUPPET IS DONE!!!!
moustache is detachable, pompom eye freckle, watcher patch, iconic black turtleneck - mostly tried to stick to how i draw him, so it’s very cartoony!
this is the first puppet i’ve ever made, i never go in to the 3d realm w my art but shane really inspired me
i love the way that shane madej listens to eyewitness testimony. even if he doesn’t believe that the ghost or demon or whatever exists, he’s very polite. he doesn’t lie when people ask him what he thinks, but he seems to assume that the witness is also not lying. it’s not black and white. there’s not just “telling the truth” and “lying”, there’s also “saying things you think are true but aren’t”. even when shane thinks it’s bogus it looks like he assumes theyre being honest, and he returns that energy
im sure it’s been said before, but both respect and honesty at the same time is refreshing in a skeptic
(belated post because I kept forgetting Tumblr exists but here goes !!)
a few weeks ago, @boogara-watcher-moron got a bunch of fans together to wish Shane a happy birthday !! everything was accepted, so I… struggled with words!
yeah, this is the Shortest Submission To San’s Projects I have ever had - I am a star at exceeding San’s submission limit, but for this one I struggled massively. LUCKILY I did make some art and that kinda speaks for itself <3
happy bday shane !!! king of tiktok, puppets and history ✨ hope u have a nice day, old man :)
And so many people have already said so so much. So I’ll keep this relatively short.
But one of my favorite things about him? His energy. He can be chaos, unhinged, sure. But mostly he’s just…vibing. I MEAN THAT okay stay with me here:
Y'know in Miyazaki/Ghibli films, sometimes there will be an old dog, or other animal, that just kinda hangs out? With soft, simple, relaxed energy? They seem sleepy but super comforting? That’s him. That’s Shane. He’s comforting. He’s steady. He’s calming. Which even Ryan has said himself – and we’ve seen how not-calm Ryan can get, so that’s a feat lmao
Anyway. I just love his way of going with the flow. Moving through life and just….being him. All tall and chill. Comfy vibes.
Happy birthday, Shane. A+ existence.
Sooo we are collectively appreciating the pretty cryptid man today and I want to say some things too. :D
A thing I really really love about Mr Madej is his complete lack of toxic masculinity - he has an incredibly beautiful energy to him that I would not necessarily describe as feminine but as a soft, gentle sort of masculinity, and that’s very very attractive.
He tends to be awkward with showing affection sometimes but he is genuine with it. He is supportive, kind, compassionate, and caring.
We all know that he is the king of not giving any fucks and that also applies to wearing and doing things that are traditionally seen as “feminine”. We have seen him in lipstick, in a chearleader outfit, in high heels. (And listen, I have Feelings about those high heels and how he moves in them but also, how dare you. As if you are not tall enough already! Hnghgn ✨legs✨.) We have seen him with flowers, with rainbow suspenders, and good Lord, he looks lovely wearing pink.
I love his wonderful smile when his eyes get small, I love how he sometimes holds his hand in front of his mouth, I love his soft voice. And for such a tall man, he is so non-threatening.
I love his stories and characters. They are always fun and entertaining and full of hilarious jokes but they also regularly end up in Emotional Territory and leave you full of feelings and with a warm heart.
It is heartwarming to see how he talks about Sara. It is heartwarming to see that he is completely comfortable with saying I love you to his male friends. It is heartwarming to see how much he cares, even if he claims to be uncomfortable with feelings and introspection (and you can’t tell me that this guy is not self-aware).
In short, you are such a beautiful soul, Shane Madej, you are so comforting, and oh, you are gorgeous. Happy birthday to our chapstick-wielding, puppet-making, movie-loving noodle man. 💖
to ½ of the ghoulfriends, 1/3 of the watcher boys, cars (2006) lover, krampus, bridge owner, the seasoned bitch, hotdog storyteller, father of obi, the man behind the puppet, definitely a human being — none other than shane (blonde) himself — happy 35th birthday! here’s to many more. 💞
Happy birthday, Shane.
I love him because he wants to be shot out of a cannon when he dies and that is fucking beautiful.
in celebrating the birthday of the tall cryptid man that we all love so much, shane madej, i would love to send some messages:
happy birthday to the nation’s greatest tragedy!
i love shane because he’s this guy who always acts like he doesn’t care about something or thinks something ridiculous, but then also validates other people’s opinions about it (e.g. the whole ghost and demon feuds with ryan). also, he always claims that he actually doesn’t really care about human relationship or what, but we can see that he actually really loves his girlfriend, sara and he truly treasures his friendships with ryan and steven. like, he’s the opposite of negative stuffs that sometimes he claims to be, he’s truly such a kind, sweet, talented and lovely man.
okay, enough about sappy stuffs because im not here for that (duh)…
he’s also one of the most attractive men ive ever seen in my life, like truly handsome, good looking and adorable. and oh! he’s pretty and beautiful, like a very very very pretty man (shut up he’s pretty okay, no, i won’t take any other opinions) also the way his eyes crinkle when he laughs? good lord, it’s bad for my heart. (do you hear the ambulance? it’s here to take me to the hospital) and he’s tall. like, really tall. have you seen his long legs? it’s like one of seven wonders of the world. man, those legs.
more than anything, he deserves everything good. i wish and hope for a wonderful birthday and amazing year for him. because he’s a special and wonderful human being.
i love him so so so much.
happy birthday again to the nation’s greatest tragedy!
p.s. did i mention legs?
