I’m trying to prove a point to my mom.
Remember when my fanart of Panty and Stocking got stolen by Otaku USA and I was never credited for it?
No I guess you wouldn’t. Because I NEVER GOT THE CREDIT.
Way back in 2011 I was told by a watcher on DeviantArt that they had seen my art in a magazine. I was really confused as I never remember authorizing any of my art being used. I ended up finding the issue of Otaku USA where they used my art of Panty and Stocking (which I had drawn before the show even aired) in their February of 2011 issue. I was incredibly surprised that anyone would mistake my FANART for OFFICIAL ART. Needless to say I tried to get in contact with the editors at the magazine as this was a HUGE oversight.
I only ever received ONE email from someone. I don’t remember who I spoke to because (unfortunately) the email account I used to contact them was hacked a while back and never got back into the account. But I can tell you what was said to me. When I contacted someone on the team I told them how it was my art and how I wanted credit for it. I asked nicely. I told them if they credited me there would be no hard feelings. I got a response back saying that one of their designers must have TAKEN THE IMAGE FROM GOOGLE AND USED IT.
First of all…you’re letting your designers RIP IMAGES FROM GOOGLE WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM THE ORIGINAL SOURCE? Now, I have an associates degree in Graphic Design and one of the HUGE rules was that we never EVER rip images from Google because that shit will come back to bite us in the ass and we could get potentially sued. If you Google Panty and Stocking you WILL actually see my fanart if you scroll down a bit. But what made me laugh even harder was that what ever dumb ass used this didn’t even take my signature out. Yeah, way to show that this was stolen. (I don’t think you tried at all.)
So they told me OK we will credit you in the next issue. I was okay with that. Next issue comes out. I go to the bookstore to MAKE SURE the credit was there. I spent half an hour looking for a credit and didn’t see a thing. Now maybe I looked over it because, let’s face it, I can stare at the fridge for ten minutes and not see the Ketchup that’s right in front of my face. But after this I went right home and emailed them again…and then again…and one more time. I NEVER RECEIVED AN ANSWER FROM ANYONE. They completely ignored me.
I guess they thought that because I was just some kid they could sweep me under the rug because I didn’t have the money to take legal action. And they were right. This issue was never resolved and my art went published in a magazine without any credit to me what so ever and it still bothers me to this day. I guess I’m just a little hurt because I always thought my art was never good enough. I’ve never been a popular artist and I’m still not that well known but for that one moment I could have had some recognition for MY art. MY ART that was apparently good enough to be mistaken for official art. It would have made me happy and it would have made me feel confident. Instead I feel cheated and used.
Maybe I feel like if I write this someone will get mad. Someone will raise hell about it and maybe this time…SOMEONE will care. Who knows. I just felt like ranting. Take from this information what you will but know this…your art is NEVER safe. Not from shitty tracers, not from popular artists, and not from big business.
Finished Eva’s color mock up.
Man between working on Voice, Vallo, the possible internship and summer classes? My summer will be hectic as hell.
But all of it will be worth it!!
Voice is a Visual Novel a friend and I will be developing [hopefully production will start soon, I’m going to finalize talk sprites soon]
The basic story is in the two slides there. However what isn’t mentioned is the fact that the story will also involve both SCP and a multitude of creepy pasta “monsters”
Slendy and Zalgo are essentially the puppet masters for both sides, it’s sort of complicated and going into it would ruin the plot, however I can say that I am really excited to actually start on this project.
ALSO THAT IS NOT HOW I WILL BE DRAWING JEFF. He wouldn’t fucking co-operate and be drawn right.
Eva, Tien and Lil from top to bottom ish?
Stop what you are doing.
If you don’t want to read, I’ll explain the key bullet points, but please read them afterwords:
This is not “we didn’t protect him enough.”
This is not “the government screwed up some random detail or accidentally let his killer loose.”
The 111th Military Intelligence had a team taking pictures of his balcony during the assassination.
They brought in a Special Forces 8-Man Sniper Team from the 20th.
Memphis Police withdrew their regular protection detail from him.
A jury of 12 people, six black and six white, found the United States Government guilty of conspiracy to commit murder.
YOUR GOVERNMENT. MY GOVERNMENT. THE GOVERNMENT OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE, SHOT AND KILLED DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING. And the media never reported the case.
MLK was ASSASSINATED. By a government YOU PAY FOR.
I hate those posts where someone tries to pressure you into reblogging. I almost never ask you to reblog.
This shit is important.
Reblog this. I don’t care what kind of blog you have. I don’t care what you normally talk about.
This had nothing to do with smoking weed or getting high. This is about our earth. This is about our future. This is about the future of our race as humans.
I am all for hemp. Hemp is the cure for so many things wrong in this world. Hemp can make such a difference!
kitsunebaba, look what appeared on my dash :D
IT USES 5 TIMES LESS WATER THAN COTTON
AND PRODUCES LIKE 10 TIMES MORE
AND IT HAS TWO SEASONS IN ONE YEAR AND IT IS STRONGER
WHEN YOU MAKE IT INTO PAPER IT DOESN’T YELLOW
YOU CAN MAKE FREAKING CONCRETE OUT OF IT THAT GETS HARDER OVER TIME AND BREATHES SO IT DOESN’T CRACK
THE OIL IS SUPER GOOD FOR YOU
IT WAS THE ORIGINAL FUEL FOR CARS
YOU CANNOT GET HIGH FROM IT!!!!
THEY USED TO MAKE SAILS OUT OF IT
YOU CAN USE 80% OF IT FOR PAPER RATHER THEN 20-30% FOR TREES
IT WAS ONLY BOYCOTTED BECAUSE THE COTTON INDUSTRY WAS GOING DOWNHILL
I used to be so confused by the difference between marijuana and hemp because they’re both cannabis. Apparently, they are different species of the same plant genus, but hemp is bred for its industrial use and is grown in tall stalks to produce more fiber. Hemp has so little THC that you would have to smoke at least ten hemp cigarettes in a row to feel anything, and hemp also contains CBD which blocks the effects of THC. Marijuana is bred for its high THC content, obviously, and is allowed to grow bushy to produce more leaves and flowers.
One of the folks in my Public Speaking class actually did a speech for this.
Apparently in Australia it’s already legal to use it to build houses and such? Wild.
(I think they said that it was banned for that kind of use in the US due to lobbyists from the LUMBER INDUSTRY, don’t quote me on that, tho, but it wouldn’t surprise me…>.>; )
i’m all for both
i have hemp oil facewash :O
i think its mostly used for fabric in australia as far as ive seen? something like that
the opposite of albinism called melanism,a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black. love it more every time i see it.

Hate to burst some bubbles here, but this is a photoshop. A good photoshop, but a photoshop none the less.
Oh my god Bakura what do you see in him I8
I guess the answer to that is, you see him in you…..
Marik plays Slender because he’s so stupid and I love it
someone asked to have this reblogable
The amount of notes on this is disgusting.pretty fucking much ^^
8th grade. he called me fat. I’ll never forget it.
Elementary school, all the boys, even the one I had a crush on.
They called me Twinkie
All the time. Not a year, not a month, not a week. All the time.
i had a crush on him but he told his friend to tell me i was too fat to go out with him
there is no faster way to lose all respect for someone
ugly, all the time. In elementary school. I will never forget.
i remember every single detail this is horrible
My own family.
was on webchat with my best friend and her boyfriend. one of his friends came over (i guess he didnt know we could hear him since the bf blocked his sound) and called me fat and ugly out loud…. scarred me for life. brought it up to him last week and he had the guiltiest look thinking i forgot all about it. 3 fucking asshole
For five years…
Yet it still continues in high school…
And my parents wonder why I don’t give myself any credit
My own dad. I know he isn’t trying to hurt me by it. He doesn’t know I already hate myself. His comments only make it worse.
