Metal 101- The Trophy Metal Girl by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Trophy Metal Girl by LusoSkav
DISCLAIMER ABOUT SEXISM ISSUES:
Since this has been coming up a lot lately and i get tired of repeating myself

-This is satire, not meant to offend in the first place, i really have no problem with any of these types of people here portrayed (except the guy in the pantera shirt cos he's a dick), i'm not judging, simply caricaturing;
-Most of these are male simply because most metalheads are male, that does not mean that a 'male' archetype cant be applied to a female metal fan.
-The female archetypes are portrayed as such because they are specifically female archetypes, non-applicable to males, and while they may seem 'insulting', they aren't meant to be any more insulting than any of the other ones, since i make fun of guys just as much as i make fun of girls.
-This is an ongoing series, and as thus, more archetypes are to come, females included, meaning that the female archetypes i come up with aren't all 'negative'

-If, after all of this you still choose to be offended and find this sexist, well, then that's beyond my grasp and you should just lower your political correctess-related sensitivity switch for a while and chill. I'm not really here to pander to or coddle those easily offended anyway.

Thank you

----------------------------------------------------------------




I need to find some female archetype that can't be interpreted as derogatory or else people might start to think i'm sexist or something


--------------------------

So, after a few years passing, and many, many metal shows attended, i couldn't help but to notice the diferent archetypes and demographics in the metalhead culture that i kept coming across.
And since i never saw any kind of descriptive charts that accurately portrayed the metal subculture i so dearly know and love, i decided to do it myself!

So, based on people that i know, people that i merely saw, often or not that often, and on blunt personal experience, i began scribbling out a few, and constructed many more in my mind, which is to say, that there will be quite a few before i'm done.

Also remember this is not meant to offend. It's all harmless satire, more often than not

So yes. Hope you enjoy Luso's Handy Guide to Metalheads

Great series both creatively and satirically. I've definitely seen almost all of the archetypes. People need to learn to laugh at themselves and their own scenes.

I have a feeling that the guy representing the Power Metaller could be the candidate for the "huge hulking boyfriend", although some beg to differ.

Electroheads are just another name for cybergoths and rivetheads. They are indeed far removed from metal--unless we're talking about Industrial Metal here, that is.

Now it's time to do the Alternative Metalhead. The one who probably spends most of his time listening to other forms of music and writing fanfiction and is pretty much a mallcore kid without the aggression and fail-tatude.

Yeah theirs a lot of girls like this in the metal scene along with the "metal grrrl" one, but there are a lot of girls in between these two. I like how your making fun of all the stereotypes in metal, so those who feel that this is sexiest are idiots. I find these pictures very funny and some what true. I hope you draw some more of the female stereotypes in metal should be pretty funny to see and read.
