Although the devil made me see that Kenma x Gomez thing, it’s also nice enough to let me know Gusari is releasing an anthology! (It really is anthology season in the HQ fandom!!!)

It’s a 2 books set - an anthology and a collection of colour illustrations. There are some new/extra work plus extended version of 2 existing stories, therefore even if you have all the books already this is still worth getting. Personally, I am most excited about part 3 of the army AU and the extension to Gunjou no Shashin! :D

It’s already up for pre-order and you can find links to the different shops via her pixiv. On Toranoana, the option with a calendar is already sold out. Even the normal version is low on stock! 

Things I love: Finding new kemono artists on Pixiv

Things I don’t love: Getting an email every month about “hot new illustrations” on Pixiv, 90% of which are fanart for anime I have never heard of and probably never will hear from again

☀ What's your rp pet peeve?

how much salt water thrown away in waste     /     accepting !

im not sure if its necessarily a pet peeve but i think , hm… theres a couple things here ?

  • more graphics-related , but when ppl dont credit / clearly havent asked permission for fanart used on their blogs. like !!! it’s not that hard to leave a little credit or ask sb if u can use their art , & edit it , probably. not even on pixiv or to artists who dont speak ur language anywhere , u can easily find templates / translation help for that. like. we’re all artists ( even if the typical definition is visual , but thats another thing ) , show a little respect ?????
  • pressure on being fast / replying the same to everyone & every thread. some ppl have full-time jobs or school , some ppl dont have the energy to churn out threads all day everyday , etc etc.
  • also the ‘ too much ooc ’ thing. sure , if theres unrelated ooc stuff ( too much fanart / etc reblogged outside ur fandom , that sort of thing ) its irritating , but. who cares if someones posting abt their personal life.

Officially presenting you a tag merely for DRAMAtical Murder fanart!


What is it for?
Well, simply put… art. DRAMAtical Murder fanart. Your drawings, sketches, fanart requests, tutorials, commissions… It’s for fanart that is yours or fanart of someone else’s which you have the permission to post on tumblr. Do not post pixiv art (or anything like it) which you don’t have the permission to, do not post anyone else’s art without credits and sources. Do not.

But… Why?
To keep things simple. To make it easy for us to find fanart made by you, to make it easy to find fanart of people outside of tumblr that you can freely reblog and share with a good conscience. It’s not always as easy as you’d think and many go without the appreciation they deserve!

I’ll have to ask you to kindly reblog this post and spread the word! And possibly, if you are interested, tracking the tag to see new fanart yourself! We here at DMMdOnline also track this tag so you’ll have a higher chance of us seeing your art and getting reblogged if you use this tag.

Artists & reprinters: please make sure you will include the tag #dmmdart in the first five (5) tags or else it will not show up!

Absolutely gorgeous Ren/Aoba fanart used in the banner is made by diasuu !

Post version of how to ask permission to post art from Pixiv

This probably should have been done a long time ago, whoops! But here’s a rebloggable version of my permission guide that so many of you have been wanting. Let’s make asking artists for permission before posting their art on tumblr a common thing this year! Thanks for reading this ridiculously long post!

Keep reading

okay, guys, psa

If you see something you like, whether it’s art or an edit or whatever, you don’t, I repeat, you do not repost it without permission. Ever.

I don’t care if you “don’t claim it as [your] own” or even if you do credit the owner. You don’t repost things without permission.

“But they’re a pixiv/whatever artist and I don’t speak Chinese/Japanese/whatever their language is” – Here you have a masterpost for various things, like asking permission to repost, to translate, etc. More specifically, here you have an actual explanation on how to send the messages + templates. Here is another explanation + a site where you can find the sources if you don’t know where they came from (I haven’t tried it out yet, but the person said they use it. You can also use Google’s reverse image search).

And there’s also the problem of reposting edits. I don’t think I have to tell you how bad doing that is (and same with art, mind you!). It doesn’t matter if you repost everything and claim it as your own edit, or even if you just use it in a text post as an image example or something, a repost is a repost, don’t do it.

This probably sounds a bit awkward, English isn’t my first language, but I’m not the first nor the only person that’s ever said this or even explained linked to how to ask for permission, please just stop reposting!

PSA to those that don’t repost: if you see uncredited art and you know it’s not the OP’s, don’t reblog it. That way you support the reposters and encourage them to continue.

Thank you for reading.

Okay, I don’t usually post just text post here but I noticed something funny in pixiv today and though you guys would find this funny.

Okay… So pixiv has this thing were it automatically adds new tags to your works if it thinks there is something that fits it… And, there seems to be a tag for inkling BoyxGirl (or for all inkling couples) art… And… MY TENTACLE IN TENTACLE IS THE FIRST PICTURE WITH THAT TAG!  I STARTED THAT TAG!?!?!?

maybe not me alone but I find this stupidly funny

About Those Art Reposters Lovelyaot  & Krafthoney

@carrot-s-cross-station, @miyakuli, @support-pixiv-artists

I couldn’t help noticing your input on an ask that s-p-a blog has made, and I just wanted to add in something of my own, but the post was too long, so I’m making a separate one.

Regarding krafthoney (ringo23) and lovelyaot (anime-blog123), it’s also that they have deliberately tried to play people for fools, knowing that most people on tumblr don’t know better or won’t bother to check, or won’t understand exactly what the conditions are that the artist is telling them.  

I have recently seen a pixiv artist stop allowing reprints because of the fact that they have gotten a job being a part of a team of game designers, and they don’t want any complications with their artwork floating around now that things are at a higher stake for them. But then if they have given a previous permit to someone like either of those two blogs mentioned above, who go about taking whatever art they find and slapping on an old permit and calling it fine, that kind of carelessness can very well finish that artist’s career before it begins if the artist themself didn’t make it clear not to allow reprints anymore, or if nobody catches those blogs doing those terrible things.

But back to my previous point. The main reason why lovelyaot and krafthoney aren’t trustworthy blogs is because of these kinds of incidents that show their nature as an individual: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. But actions always speaks louder and words, and those actions they done in the past and even continue to do up to this day, nullifies any claim they make, and they were only sorry once they got caught

All those disrespectful ways they’ve treated artists until they were caught. Also how they treated tumblr users like they’re idiots by what happened in #7 especially. They took advantage of both the artist and that particular fandom in order to gain all those notes. 

They took advantage of the artist because they used an old permission that the artist no longer counts as valid to repost their works, even after the artist flat out rejected their sister blog’s request for permission (there’s no way they couldn’t have seen that; those two blogs heavily associate with each other). They thought they could ‘slip by’ easy and hopefully nobody would catch on…well, @support-pixiv-artists did, and thank god they did too. 

They took advantage of the Naruto fandom because obviously, who could resist such well-drawn pretty artwork when they poster even claims that they got permission? Judging by the sheer number of notes alone, I can estimate that pretty much all of those people blindly put their trust and faith in krafthoney/lovelyaot being honest, when in fact, they were deceived, and they only realized it too late, as evidenced by this post here. By then, what good’s an apology to the artist even? Their artwork is now plastered on every corner of the web, thanks to those blogs. 

This is why I’m tagging some fandoms I notice they post in. Because of what happened in the Naruto and Free! fandom, they have become cautionary tales, and these other fandoms deserve to know so hopefully they won’t fall for the same kind of mistake as countless Free! and Naruto blogs have.
