artist on the wrong

I keep saying that one day I’ll draw something besides the nordics…

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Villainous is led by someone who was banned from Tumblr for pedophilia and the scammer behind the police lady and the bear cartoon probably not a good idea to support it

I’m trying to stay out of this stuff, but just for clarification – LemonTeaFlower is merely a storyboard artist and worked on lineart for the show (she may have also done some concept art?). In either way, there’s post among posts about this situation which go either way on the topic which I really don’t want to delve into – regardless, the creator of Villainous itself, Alan Ituriel, had nothing to do with any of that and I don’t believe it’s fair to hold him and his creation he’s been working on for years to something one of his artists did back in 2014.

I agree what LTF did was wrong, but the show itself and it’s creator are not at fault for her doings.

They actually played this song and it’s forever stuck in my head

  • Me: I don't think I like That Ship™.
  • Artists: *draws cute art of That Ship™*
  • Me: This just in, I was wrong.

Please get Mark to see this.

I’m well aware that you know it’s important to credit creators. This goes for photoshop and art alike (etc) . I really hope you saw that my thing with Tom Brady and Tyler was used and not credited (as far as I know, please correct me if it was). I just want to reiterate something.

In my book, it is never okay to use someone’s content without direct permission from them. It is okay, however, if this content includes the person using it and is credited properly. Example: Markiplier fanart being used by Mark and Mark only, so long as it’s credited.

I saw Tyler defend someone who stole my art, saying they only wanted to share it. This is wrong. You need direct permission from an artist to use it.

Please, advocate something like this in the community, and please please please, at least give me credit. I am mad by principle. You cannot excuse theft in anyway. 

Edit: I’m not mad per say. I’m dissapointed. I understand Mark has good intentions and I understand he likely forgot. Just principle here.

edit 2: For those who aren’t aware, mark has seen this! just leaving it up. :P

Some people get high
Some people kiss the wrong person
Some people get drunk,
Some people dance until their feet hurts among people who are sick of alcohol,
And some people just like me… write.
Some people write until their fingers bleed
Until there are no more words to write
Until there are no blank spaces on the paper.
And everyone dies a little in different ways.

Steve Huston is one of the best artists and teachers of our time. His advice has been helping me figure out how I should approach making art and why I create art in the first place. 

In this interview, Steve Huston talks about how to grow as an artist, how to develop a unique style, how to find what calls to you, and much more. It’s a mighty 106 minute conversation filled with golden nuggets. Don’t miss this one.

Steve recently published an instructional book on figure drawing. I think it’s a must have for every artist learning how to draw: Figure Drawing for Artists: Making Every Mark Count
