The inevitable has happened and I have fallen miserably behind on PokkedexY entries…but it’s for the sake of drawing a professional Adventure Time comic, not to mention my normal Regular Show monthly, and those pokemons are full-fledged traditional paintings, so….that…is my excuse….I’m sorry….I’m kind of a failure though, I could’ve kept it up but I’ll just take a day to catch up after all these deadlines ahhhhhh so sorry i suck ahhh D: (the reality is that I’ve been preparing for the return of Sherlock by reading/re-reading an exorbitant amount of fic don’t tell me you haven’t been doing the same okay shhh xoxo)
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”—Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013 (via albinwonderland)
Psst! I am so glad you picked up PokedexxY this year!
haha thanks luv! <3 Yeah I’ve been itching to paint for a WHILE now, so I jumped on the opportunity to practice and it’s been a fun exercise! I did the Pokeddex one year for like half the month but I’m determined to do it proper this year. Now I just gotta catch up a bit…only by a day, but it still annoys me! haha :p
I dunno if you get this all the time but maybe you could help me with something: As artists we want to share our works with the world but these days, it's easy to for people to steal your work, no matter where you post or how much watermarks you place. I often think if I wanted to make prints of an image, that putting it on the web would hurt sales more than help. Have you ever dealt with these situations?
Short answer: I don’t think about it. It just happens nowadays.
I mean, I could get into a whole thing about art theft when companies do it cause THAT’S the kicker and definitely cause for outrage, but ultimately if I chose not to put up or sell work online I’d be losing potential profits not to mention valuable exposure and relationships. I don’t understand why I wouldn’t. If it gets stolen that sucks sure, but I’d rather take that risk for the sake of it being exposed by posting online so more people can hopefully enjoy it! It’s also pretty silly when people make excuses that it’s an honoring thing I mean that’s just dumb haha who cares no one’s too special, I don’t fully understand why people do it but whatever.
I guess my final word on it is yeah it sucks but that’s how things are now so idk *shrug*
Some tumblr user named crescendudes basically straight up traced one of your klaine fanarts and is passing it off as their own!!
I know, it’s okay sweetheart! It’s just fanart, they’re not profitting off it, and notes never mattered to me so idk I mind a little but I’d rather not start anything. I’m gonna say we just used the same reference and leave it at that. It kinda sucks to see, but the fact that so many people in the fandom after all this time drawing that have come to me about it warms my heart, I love you guys!!! <3 <3 <3
I don't see anything wrong with it, and I'm sure more people than not would agree. You're making art of things you enjoy and sharing it with others, while they're wasting their time running a sad blog. Please don't let them get you down! <3
Ah, thank you! Yeah I mean, I know it’s pretty silly, and I’m not too upset or like fishing for compliments or whatever haha, it’s mainly just that I’m a bit rusty with that kinda art nowadays so it’s a bit nerve wracking to see so much hate on it at this time. Anyway whateverrrrrr I like it so there haha XD;; Thanks luv~<3
