MY HONOR IS SAVED
aww man. i haven’t seen the repost, and i think it’s the first time it happened to me?? i mean, it’s the first time someone’s tipped me off. btw, thank you for tipping me off, anon! you’re not incorrect about it, i never authorized any sort of reproduction of my content within tumblr so this person is doing it without my awareness or approval.
this is kind of a bummer, i was getting way too many notes on all the homestuck fanart and kind of expected it to happen… but it still sucks. i really gotta start signing my artwork and just maybe it won’t get erased when people do feel the need to repost.
i’m glad reposting and not sourcing properly has gone down ever since i joined tumblr, but another reminder couldn’t hurt: always reblog from the artist! when seeing art you like outside of tumblr, (kindly) ask the artist for permission before uploading it here, and always give credit! if the answer is no, then please please please don’t insist!!! sometimes artists on pixiv will have it written in english on their profiles that they do not wish to see their stuff being passed around outside pixiv, at which point don’t even bother trying to contact them about it. that would be rude.
if you see unsourced art floating around on tumblr, please consider telling the person who reblogged it that it’s a really shitty thing to do (for reasons i’m sure you all know about already). people who repost images will often have their askboxes closed in order to avoid being called out on it, but maybe you can at least get to their followers.
BY THE WAY can you tell me which blog reposted my stuff? this probably will end in nothing but i don’t want to stay quiet about it anyway. :T
some time has passed and i haven’t exploded from anxiety from having people look at my experimental work, so i guess it’s pretty safe to make my other blog public. i moved or reposted a few things there.
so uuuhh it’s really mostly an experimental thing and i wouldn’t put every single piece in an exhibit and some are admittedly pretty terrible, but i feel like all the things that go there are an important part of my process and it makes sense to me to look at all of them together. you’ll see analog and digital photos, analog and digital drawings, scans, edits, pixels, etc. maybe i’ll even put up a painting or two when i’m feeling brave enough!
some posts might get edited or deleted eventually since i want this to be more of a sandbox than a portfolio, but i hope you can enjoy the blog anyway.
soooo head on over to cromorragia if you want! (๑>ᴗ<๑) help make me feel cool~
THIS IS SO FUCKING BEAUTIFUL. U ALL GO FOLLOW HER. for real. oh my thats looking so pro. these pants and the horns dude.…
LSKJFDFSKJ I GO TO SLEEP AND COME BACK TO A BUNCH OF NEW FOLLOWERS, WHAT
omg you spoil me
thank you so, so much!~ ಹ◡ಹ
i was going to draw something sexier but the 30 day challenge has succubus right after demon! so for fear of making the two too similar, this is what came up……
EDIT: if anyone’s curious, i was listening to this to get inspired
i’ve never posted gore of any kind on this blog so it’s only fair i give everyone a fair warning!
i’m going to post a drawing that depicts blood, guts and animal death, and since i don’t really want to put it under a cut (still not sure about this though), i’m telling you all in advance. and yes, i’ll be sure to tag it!
and since we’re on this subject, i might post gorey stuff again in the future. i have a bad habit of lumping all my art together regardless of the theme/purpose/technique, and i’ll probably get that sorted out in the future, but for now i’m just going to use this blog as an idea/sketch dump. i’m really sorry for any inconvenience caused, but the blog as it is now is working quite well for me. (◕︵◕)
i’m not a huge guro fan so it’s not like that’ll be the main focus of my work from now on, but it’s something i’d like to explore every now and then. i’m always going to tag it to the best of my abilities so that hopefully no one is taken by surprise. if you use the tumblr app a lot and really cannot bear to see 2D carnage, maybe it’d be best to unfollow… but don’t worry, i won’t be heartbroken over it! after all, you gotta put your own well-being first.
so uhhh yeah i’ll be postin those guts in a few minutes ok

- DO NOT reblog photos of Mike Brown’s body lying on the street. His family has requested that these photos not be spread around. Please respect their wishes.
Very importantly, stay alert. Read everything you can on the subject. The reports on The New York Times, Al Jazeera, and other news outlets are very limited, especially because the police in Ferguson are going to great lengths to keep reporters out. Seek out what you can online and from first hand sources, if you know anyone in the area. Listen to the stories of those who have been affected by this tragedy and other similar ones. Educate yourself as much as you possibly can so you can help make sure the right people are heard.
Michael Brown was an 18 year old that was killed by a Ferguson Police Officer on Saturday, August 9th. His family is now seeking justice for Michael’s death. Their pursuit for justice will be lengthy and hard but with the support of the community they will get justice. If you are willing to support Michael’s family please donate to Michael Brown’s Memorial Fund. These funds will assist his family with costs that they will acquire as they seek justice on Michael’s behalf. All funds will be given to the Michael Brown family. We appreciate your support.
This is a legitimate fundraiser confirmed by the family’s lawyer’s official twitter account and multiple news sources. This family has suffered so much, please help relieve one small worry from their life.
People who like NSFW posts but don’t reblog them
As many of you are well aware, WeLoveFine is a shirt company that boosts “T-Shirts designed by fans for fans” motto. Their slogan and idea is simple enough, hire fans/artists to work with their acquired licenses and selling those shirts to said fans/artists.
They hold design contests that allow them to gain a better idea of what will sell and in turn lead artists on with the promise that they may potentially be hire by WLF under their MightyFineArtist program - a program that would allow artists to submit their work whenever and to gain commission from their art rather than one fixed flat rate.
The MFA is invite only but WLF insists that if an artist holds enough contest wins under their belt that they may be admitted into the program. They claim that they treat their artists fairly however, this ultimately isn’t how it goes down over at WLF.
More under the cut:
For a while now I’ve been pretty agitated with WLF. Back when I entered the MLP contest probably 3 years ago, I got an email saying my entry was in the top ones (it’s still there) but I needed to sign a release form saying they could use it for whatever they wanted… before even letting me know how far I qualified.
As it turned out, I won… a 50 dollar gift certificate. That was not even enough to cover 2 shirts with shipping.
My previous experiences with shirts have been with threadless, where I collaborated with my friend Alice. I can’t even remember how much money we initially got for it (I think it was 500 each?), but every time our shirts are reprinted we each get 250. Also, they give store credit for making winning designs.
Not only does WLF not do that (the store credit thing), they don’t pay artists fairly for reprinting. How much money has my shirt made them? At the cost of… however much 2 shirts from them cost to print? They didn’t even pay to ship it. So they’ve literally made hundreds/thousands from my fucking shirt and I got… 50 dollar gift certificate. That’s it.
So take that into account for their many designs, and consider the very little the artists got in return.
It was pretty stupid of me to sign without finding out what I was going to receive in exchange, and so that’s a lesson learned, here. Please take from my lesson and shun these extremely shady “business” practices which treat fanart as not “Real” art deserving fair pay, despite the huge amount of money to be made from it.
I’m glad to see an actual post about the shit they’re pulling though, because I felt like my anecdote alone wasn’t really enough to make a post about.
TLDR fuck WLF for paying dismally and not giving a shit about the artists themselves or fair compensation.
