Voltron “Reunion” thoughts

So I was thinking a lot about Matt’s grave and why it exists, from a writing perspective. Pidge would realize moments later that Matt was alive. Heck, most of the fan base knew Matt was ok thanks to the promo stuff. So why would the writer’s include this fake grave scene when they could’ve easily placed the code somewhere else. Was it for shock value? I think not.

That episode seemed to focus on more than Matt. Think back Te-osh. She dies in the same episode. Yes, that had a sad tone, but we all moved on pretty quickly. But later, we see Matt’s grave. And it’s not that we beleive Matt is dead. We knew nearly nothing about him, and didn’t value him as a character very much. What was so heart wrenching about that scene was Pidge’s screams of sheer agony. We felt her pain vicariously, knowing that she had been searching since the begining.

I think that episode was not just an episode to find Matt and resolve that plotline. It was also an episode to remind us that people are dying. This is a war effort, and not all the deceased’s loved ones will be as lucky as Pidge. Over two thousand graves surrounded Matt’s. We shouldn’t forget that.

Hi 😊 Do these sigils work? I really need to know, thanks 😊

Once have a sigil, you choose where to draw/carve/paint/or otherwise place it. It can just be on a piece of paper. That’s easy and you can place the paper pretty much wherever you want. Then you choose a Charging method. There are lots of ways to charge a sigil but finding one that suits the intent of the sigil can make it more effective. Some charging methods destroy the sigil and if that’s the case you’re done. If it doesn’t then you do whatever you want with the sigil. You can place it somewhere that makes sense, like in your textbook if it’s for studying, or by your bed if it’s for sleeping. Or you could just tear it up and throw away the pieces. Some people try to forget their sigil and its meaning so that their subconscious can work unhindered to bring about the sigil’s goal. For me though, they work better when I remember them. So you can decide what’s best for you there. That’s about it. Check out my FAQ About Sigils for more info on sigils.

Hi! Would you mind if i'd ask you.. have you got some kind of tips about how a watermark should be to look pretty but still visible enough? I'm so afraid to put it on my drawings because it kinda ruins them xD but still is necessary... I haven't ant idea how i should "design" it.. a font, handwriting, with opacity down, place it in corners or on the lineart,, ecc(sorry for my bad english).

That’s a very valid concern.  Unfortunately, the more visible/large/annoying the signature, the more protected your art will be.  I die a little inside whenever I have to cover up something I spent hours (or even days) on.  But I’d rather have it look kind of annoying instead of having someone else take credit for it, or worse, having someone SELLING IT illegally behind my back.

Having experienced (and having watched my fellow artist friends experience) various forms of art theft, I’ve come up with a few tricks to making it difficult for my signature to be removed.  I don’t have a set, “official” watermark; I experiment and play around with different looks depending on what the picture looks like.  You can try any of these ideas and see what works for you.  ^_^


~QUICK WATERMARK TUTORIAL~


Make it legible.  Fancy fonts are pretty, but can be hard to read.  Your main goal is that EVERYONE can read it, even people whose primary language is not English or those who have a different alphabet/lettering/symbols.


Place it somewhere that cannot be cropped out, such as near the heads or towards the middle of the picture


Place your signature/watermark where will be difficult to erase or cover up, such as an area with shading, or over a pattern


The safest location is on top of a character.  It looks ugly, but at least you can’t really sell merchandise of someone else’s art if there’s a giant signature across the way.

If your picture is black and white, be careful.  Someone might take it and try to color it, then pass it off as their own work.  Put your watermark on top of the lineart to make it more difficult to steal, preferably an area with lots of lines, such as hair or clothing wrinkles.

Be especially careful with pictures that can be easily made into merchandise (pins, mugs, stickers, bags, phone cases, etc), such as the one above.  Make the signature large and have it protect all visible characters, like a big unsightly shield.  XD


DO NOT’s:   (aka, some of my old mistakes)

Do not place it close to the edges/corners where it can be cropped. 


Don’t make it too tiny, and don’t lower the layer opacity too much.

Note:  If you do not want your art reposted/uploaded onto different websites/accounts by other people, I highly recommend adding to your watermark:  “Do not edit or redistribute.”  It’s not always enough to deter some reposters, but at least sometimes fans will call them out on it and say, “Hey, this artist doesn’t allow this picture to be uploaded onto different sites, you should remove it.”

That’s all for now, I hope it helps!!!  Good luck with your artwork and thank you for your message!!!  <3
