Ideas for Witchcraft Using Art

[REPOSTED FROM OLD URL]

A compilation of ideas I have read or thought up! I do not claim originality for this post. Some ideas crossover between fields and are not repeated.

Two-Dimensional

  • Program your drawing tools with intent - for lighter/darker lines, for clarity of the stroke, for following through with the motion, for consistency.
  • Draw sigils on your drawing board or easel or table for inspiration.
  • (And if you’re using a flat table to draw, consider getting a drawing board. Drawing large on a flat surface distorts your POV.)
  • Energize your brush water for better removal of paint.
  • Draw a sigil on your palette or mirror/glass for paint to keep your paints moist for longer.
  • Use a clothes pin (for pink rubber erasers) or a 2B/light graphite pencil (for the kneadable erasers) to draw sigils for better removal of lines.
  • Enchant all your tools - brushes, paper pads, canvases, pencil cases, anything - for durability.
  • Program a stone (of your choice) to prevent loss of your tools and keep it in your backpack, pencil pouch, or portfolio bag.
  • Draw sigils on the back of your finished works for extra attention.
  • Sacrifice the first tip of your pencils and charcoal (both light and dark and especially anything past 6B) to a jar, and put a spell on the jar to keep your light lines light and your dark lines dark.
  • If you use a ruler or a stick to check proportions, dip it in enchanted water the night before - enchant the water to give you clarity of vision.
  • Optional: Enchant your clothes to repel paint stains, charcoal dust, pastel sticks, etc. (Optional because unless you’re Yves Klein, most artists I am familiar with are careful not to get excessively dirty because of wasted materials.)
  • Keep your paints/color-tools in a container enchanted to maintain their vibrancy.
  • Draw a sigil on any face-mask you have so that it filters all hazardous fumes out, especially if you are using spray paint.
  • Enchant spray paint cans for less dripping, as well as fixative cans.

Three-Dimensional

  • Enchant any and all materials and projects for durability, especially after welding, gluing, slipping, or firing a project.
  • Use chalk to draw a sigil on welding or plasma cutter surfaces for clean lines and careful motions.
  • Enchant any material used to bind objects together or secure objects with power and specific purpose (ex. glue to bind these two pieces of wood together, straps to bind these several pieces of plaster mold together).
  • Use magic to make a specific place where you rest your work (a table, a board, a section of floor) so that while you are away it is protected and safe.
  • Enchant all your small tools so that they are returned to you if lost. (Also sharpie your name all over those things. Do it.)
  • If you have access to YOUR OWN power tools, put a sigil for sharpness and durability on any saw blades. Do not do this if you are at a school using public equipment - you may not be allowed to draw on blades or remove them from the machines to draw on.
  • Siphon any frustration or anger as energy into hammers for extra force.
  • Invent a small chant to increase precision and say it before drilling, cutting, or altering anything.
  • Write sigils for protection, durability, and good color on paper and leave them in the kilns with your art work during firing. (For ceramics and hardening metal casting sand-resin molds. Wouldn’t advise it for glass kilns due to potential contamination by ash in small glass kilns.)
  • Enchant the hell out of your workspace for cleanliness, organization, and loss-prevention. Do this like everyday, I swear. I know sculptors. DO IT NOW.

Textiles/Printmaking

  • Sharpness enchantments on every single blade in your work area.
  • Draw durability and precision sigils on any sewing equipment used.
  • Enchant water for color-vibrancy and attention and use it to anoint all fabric lengths (usually best while they are still rolled up or immediately after purchasing them).
  • Energize paper reams with color-vibrancy and attention rather than using water.
  • Cast spells on all inks for good consistency and ease of use.
  • Enchant ink-mixing area for cleanliness and lack of contamination.
  • Likewise, enchant cleaning supplies (mineral oils, etc) for extra power while cleaning.
  • Say a protective chant over your pieces while they are drying to prevent damage.
  • Sigil the back of your stamps (and the printmaking word for the ‘stamps’ you use, I forgot) for durability.
  • Visualize your paper/fabric as imbibed with energy of fire for faster drying times.
  • Enchant thread for strength, enchant needle for sharpness, enchant any backing for protection.  

Digital/Photography

  • Cast spells all over your electronics for protection, battery life, memory space, anything you can think of.
  • If you use a tablet, clean it (carefully) and while doing that visualize your intent for the tablet to provide you with clean lines while drawing.
  • Draw a sigil on your workspace to remind you to save, frequently, often, and with more than one file name during a big project.
  • Enchant your external hard drives and USB sticks with loss prevention spells.
  • Draw a sigil for attention on the background of your digital file before starting a project, erase it for the sigil to activate or leave it hidden in the background for permanence.
  • Turn your digital signature into an enchantment for protection, attention, or theft-prevention.
  • Draw a sigil lightly on the reverse of any photographs printed for protection, attention, or theft prevention.
  • Hold camera lenses up to the sun for good lighting and angles and to the moon for clarity and cleanliness of your lens.
  • Ritualize cleaning of equipment to imbibe materials with specific attributes.

Performance

  • Enchant water pre-performance for strength, focus, and energy.
  • Draw sigils for attention on your body underneath your clothes (if you are the performer) or on the focus of your art.
  • Enchant digital or recorded files of your performance for protection (from loss due to accidental trashing) and for locating it later.
  • Sorry I don’t know much about performance, but call upon the spirits of Carol Schneeman and Joseph Beuys and I bet they’d help. (Schneeman’s still living but summon her anyways.)

General

  • Enchant your coffee, tea, or drink of choice for clarity during critiques and focus during those same critiques.
  • Put sigils on your clothes to decrease anxiety and stress, put sigils on your clothes to prevent damage to yourself or to your clothes.
  • Invent a chant to increase retention while studying for Art History.

Plot Twist Pt. 2

Fandom: Marvel/Avengers
Pairing: Avengers x Reader, Steve Rodgers x sister!reader
Prompts: 21. “I did NOT tell you to set it on fire!!”
6. "That’s french for ‘go away’.“
Summary: After getting caught flying in a stolen Iron Man suit the reader is held for questioning in some dark corner of the Avengers Compound. Concerned Steve and Tony try to find out how and why you’ve gone to such lengths to get their attention.
Part 1
Warning: There’s some suggestive stuff between Tony and the reader. I want to make it clear, I’m NOT approving of a relationship between a grown man and a 16 yr old!! I’m just using these interactions to so the extent of the reader’s emotional detachment, and the twisted way they are used to communicating in precarious situations. The interactions between them will in no way develop into a romantic plot line

After your revelation there was a small commotion. Tony sent Peter on a fact finding mission, gave Steve a moment to breathe, and you agreed not to kill anyone if they untied you. 
”Didn’t know being a Rogers had it’s perks,” you muttered at Tony’s back while he led you out of the interrogation room and into a spacious office. 
Tony watched as you walked past him and into the room, heading straight for the windows. 
”Enjoying the view or looking for a way out?” he asked after a moment of silence.
”Both.”
”I got a partial story from Cap, but, as you can imagine, he was a bit preoccupied with having a panic attack.” Tony said, watching you scan the landscape around the compound. “So Y/N Rogers, do you want to fill me in?”
”Daddy dearest unfroze and needed to unwind. Met my mom- in the biblical sense- then a year later my mom met a drunk driver. I survived, she didn’t.” You voice didn’t give away any sense of resentment or pain. Actually Tony noticed a complete lack of emotion. It was as if you were explaining to him how addition and subtraction worked.
”Never pictured Rogers as the one night stand type,” Tony said to himself. 
”We can be,” you said throwing a look over your shoulder at him and giving a smile. 
Tony looked confused not understanding how you could dryly talk about growing up parent-less and then flip a switch and be a confident smart-ass.
Your conversation was interrupted by a knock on the door. “Mr. Stark?” Peter said stepping into the room. “I found the files you asked for. I mean- FRIDAY found them.” He carried a hefty stack of papers over to Tony and lowered his voice, “Y/N’s used a lot of aliases but facial recognition identified her in all of these cases.”
You winked at Peter causing him to shove the files into Tony’s hands and leave in a flustered mess. 
“Play nice,” Tony warned noticing the effect you were having on his innocent intern.
“Oh I will,” you muttered under your breath purely for your own entertainment.

“I must say, you’ve done a lot to get our attention. Theft, arson, assault, organizing a small group of thugs and smugglers.”
”Don’t flatter yourself,” you said, “I was just doing my thing. Like I said before, you didn’t catch me until I needed you to. Hence why you didn’t even know I existed.”
”There’s no way you would have kept under the radar for that long. You ran with a rough crowd.”
”I ran the rough crowd. And yeah, it’s easy to fly under the radar when it’s full of aliens and A.I.s. Great job on that by the way,” you said giving him a sarcastic thumbs up. 
Tony bristled at the mention of Ultron. “So you what? Saw some petty crime during your orphaned childhood and thought- damn, that looks like a good time?”
His witty response entertained you, momentarily knocking down your guard and letting an honest answer slip by. ”No. I was taught. By people who knew what I was before I even did.” Once the words came out you clenched your jaw, the tensed muscle were the only sign that you had given away too much. Tony picked up on it. 
”Taught huh? Like in between your French and Chemistry classes?” He threw a bit of sarcasm back, flaunting that he had caught your slip. You didn’t move or respond, eyes trained on the wall behind Tony. ”Who taught you?” he pressed.
“Fuck off” you said out of the side of your mouth, re-straightening your posture and looking at him with an uninterested expression. “That’s french for ‘go away’.”
”Random 10 year old girls don’t just go around beating grown men senseless,” he said holding up photos from one of the files. 
Ah, Jonny. He thought he was such a hardass, you reflected fondly as you recognized the battered face.
”You know how that tune goes- girls just wanna strike fear into the hearts of their enemies.”
”I’m not familiar with that version.” Tony scoffed. 
He took a deep breath and ran a hand across his face. Teenagers are the worst, he thought to himself. 
“Why now?” Steve’s voice cut through the room, making both you and Tony turn towards the door in surprise, “What’s your plan?”
”Why do I have to have the plan?” you said innocently, “aren’t you the ones who have to decide what to do with me?”
Tony and Steve looked at each other, both knowing there wasn’t a plan for this.
”You can’t let me go because you know there’s more to this,” you said to Tony. “And you,” you turned to Steve,“you are just too good to let your crazy kid loose. Though I’m not sure you like me enough to be doing that for my sake. Probably worried I’ll burn down Brooklyn.”
”Well we can’t ignore all this,” Tony said coming to Steve’s defense. The poor guy was still trying to process everything, his face constantly being taken over by a new emotion. “These files- your past-would all have to magically go away for us to be able to trust you to stay here.” Tony said leaning against his glass desk top and crossing his arms. He was making a point, showing you two things. 1) that he put the ball in your court and 2) that he knew you were just as stuck as they were. You would’ve been happy still tied to that chair, but they had created this limbo when they set you free and gave you a chance. You knew you needed to straighten it out, do something drastic to define the lines so you know which to cross and when. You needed to make a play…you need to stay on objective.
You took a beat but didn’t respond verbally. Instead you started walking towards Tony slowly. There was something predatory in the way you walked, your eyes locked in but deadened. You stopped right in front of him and leaned forward reaching around him. Your chests were inches apart and Tony stiffened, giving Steve a side eye that said ‘THIS IS YOUR KID.’

“AHHHH!” Tony screamed and jumped away as the stack of files behind him ignited into a ball of flames.
Steve ran across the room to help Tony put out the growing fire. It spread across the glass igniting some memos and blueprints. oops.
Finally they were able to put it out, smoke beginning to slowly curl off the ash and blackened pages. Both of the men, now covered in charcoal marks on their arms and faces, turned to you in disbelief.
You had settled into a nearby chair, throwing you legs over the arm rest and letting them dangle. “You told me that if I was going to stay all of that would have to go away.”
“I did NOT tell you to set it on fire!!” Tony shouted.
“Sorry. I have a flair for the dramatics,” you punctuated your statement by tossing your hair over your shoulder.
“How did you even-” Steve began to ask, but you cut him off tossing a small metal lighter into his hands. Steve turned it over seeing an engraved C.B.
“Knicked it,” you said. “Rule #2: if you can’t find an escape, find a way to cause a distraction.” you quoted robotically. Tony and Steve looked at you, completely at a loss. What were they going to do with you? You were the pinnacle of a teenager- angsty, unreasonable, but (unlike your peers) dangerous.
“Technically I did a good deed,” you offered, pulling out the knife you keep tucked in your boot and using it to clean under your nails. “I added 5 years and clean lungs to Barton’s life.” 
“Who are you?” Steve wondered out loud. He didn’t know whether he was concerned, afraid or disappointed and it showed in his deflated shoulders. 
“What’s rule #1?” Tony asked. It was irrelevant, but after the last few hours protocol seemed irrelevant.
“Only trust one thing:” you responded automatically, “you are always on your own.”

Attention Fairy Tail Artists

I was kindly told that AGAIN there is someone reposting art on instagram without asking for permission.

I recognized some,but not all artstyles, you might want to look if your art is beneath “the chosen ones” as well.

art I (think) recognized (also edited art): @keiid @ayumichi-me @rboz @blamedorange @leons-7 @zippi44 @likubears

If you recognize others, you might wanna add them :)

https://www.instagram.com/nalu_moments_/

For now I asked them kindly to take the stuff down and hopefully I’ll get a cooperative answer. I’ll be updating about this

Thanks to everyone who’s reblogging and helping :)
Attention

Here’s a thing I want you all to read *please*
    So a person as kuposdeath on Instagram (also known as askcian or whatever here on tumblr, though I’m sure they’re inactive at this point) has been copying/stealing @kittybrine’s art style for well over a lot of months.

Let me clarify this before I continue on:
    There are such things as coincidental situations where two completely random strangers have similar artsyles, as well as friends picking up a thing or two from each other unconsciously. But that’s the thing, even with all the claims that artstyle theft doesn’t exist or it’s impossible for there are too many factors.
  Kupo, or Ben as some refer, has managed to do that very thing. Kittybrine (or Jinx as you will) had first met them, as explained:

    Even seeing Ben’s askblog here from they last time they were active, you can clearly see their art resembled no such thing as Jinx’s, right? Even look at this example and they’re art of one of Jinx’s characters

And now, look at this example of art both ben and jinx did back then around the same time, and try to guess who did what first glance:

You’d think it’s by the same person right?
But I must mention, this was after a confrontation had occurred between them and where Ben “shifted” their art with major inconsistencies but it never strayed from Jinx’s style and just came full circle.

Kittybrine had said it was uncomfortable even before that and according to her words, Ben did this to “impress” her and even at a point admitted their art look like hers, Ben even admitted to purposely copy the kinds of ocs Jinx had despite not “being able to stop theirself”

Even another situation with their brine as well waaay back when:

And Jinx has indeed stated before that they tried to talk about this problem before they ended up being blocked after a falling out, and turned out to learn Ben (who coincidentally made friends with a bunch of Jinx’s friends and even tried to message me randomly once,) had told those friends their “side” of this whole deal, which lead Jinx to lose some because they took a thief’s side over theirs. (Apparently even one took Ben’s side because this situation was immature???) Ben also apparently tried to shit talk about Jinx and her best friend to other people( some of her friends), and tried to turn them against her- even people who never interacted with her.

Look at this as well:

This is an example (with my art in the middle there)
These drawings were all done at different times keep note,(all in order and in relevant time) for the first row (it was indeed giftart for jinx but) you can see here how the arms aren’t ‘cube’ shaped, and how the shading at the time imitated jinx’s style. Then, you see Ben shifting their art to imitate art I did for candybrine, even the shading was similar to mine, compare how they shaded from the second row to the third, the eyes went from a gradient look to a flat colored look, even the hair went to a more airbrushed tone too. And if you look at the third row, Ben even changed the arms to be cubed shaped to imitate Jinx’s art, even copied again how they shaded. (Even kept changing the number of fingers from four to five to copy my drawing for some reason)
I’m pointing this out for this all happened in order, Ben continued to keep changing their art so it could look similar to Jinx’s, even made their own version of Alex after Jinx posted their versions of Steve and Notch.
It’s been a common occurrence. Just a typical “coincidence,” hm?
Even more proof just see this, here’s want amazes me. They did a redraw right? I couldn’t even tell the first one was the old one, take a look

    They had their own perfectly, original and unique style before all this, which I personally found better, and they even went all the way to copy how Jinx shaded. This shows how much they changed just by copying, and it’s a real shame too for I don’t see how they could even waste their time to lose this much.
Some random person even went on their account saying how their art looks similar to Jinx’s and Ben got all pissy and even deleted the comment, and keep in mind that all Ben says nowadays is they hate Jinx, blocked her and everything.

    I’m posting this for I can’t stand others to be quiet, even friends of Ben who’s aware of this problem, even the fact I felt like this had nothing to do with me despite having my art copied that one point, I may bring this post over to Instagram sooner on but I want you people here to know before I go there to immature kids who will defend their friend who “can do no wrong.” This is no different than an actual random person stealing your art, so I don’t see why just because someone appears “nicer” than the other, suddenly obligates them to being free of punishment? You can’t pretend like this isn’t happening, you can’t just let someone joyride their way to success with a stolen mess that the latter deserves. Sure you guys can argue artstyle theft isn’t real, which can be to an extent, but this was deliberate, with people who known each other for way too long.
Ben’s lucky enough Jinx didn’t want to start this mess for as long as she did, but now it’s going to get too carried away unless something is done.
Ben admitted in public they did talk shit about Jinx and more, but never once admit to the stolen style. It’s not like they have “nothing to turn to” if they 'revert back’, for did you see that past art?

Please share this post and spread it around for I don’t care if you guys try to agree on me with this one, this has been going on too long and I’m hoping there’s enough mature logical people on this site, which is why I’m posting this here first.

And a reminder despite what you want to do, of course don’t harass them but if anything just even them admitting to the public they copied Jinx’s art is a step forward. Anyone would be mad if an artstyle you spent years into developing and improving was easily copied on purpose for god knows what reason. I’m sure any one of you would like to have it back. I’m fairly sure they’re inactive here as I said which is why I posted this here so people are aware before something is actually done on instagram, but anything I left out or you need to know more of you know who’s side you can ask.

I’m also certain there are people here who are/were “buddy/buddy” with them but I come back to what I said earlier,  This is no different than an actual random person stealing your art, so I don’t see why just because someone appears “nicer” than the other, suddenly obligates them to being free of punishment?

anonymous asked:

Posting art on Tumblr when you admit you don't know where it came from isn't art theft. Getting attention for your blog does seem unethical, but they're outright claiming it isn't theirs and is leaving it up to the user to find the owner. Users like these rarely, practically ever, make money off of their Tumblr blogs, and the ones that become famous (also practically never) fall from grace immediately. So it literally doesn't matter.

now this mainly applies to older artists but do you, who sound like you have never posted art in your life, have any idea how discouraging it was when I was a younger artist with barely any audience at all, to know that every time I spent time on something and made it look good that it was bound to get reposted by someone with more followers than I had?

so many times I would be discouraged from spending time on something just because I knew someone else would get the credit for it

and while reposts may not ALWAYS get more popular than the originals, its always going to hurt

and its always going to do damage

*sighs exasperatedly* here we go again, guys. User frabychanny on instagram is resposting my art, AND putting their signature on it. Of course, this art theft is happening on all the social media platforms that I don’t have. I don’t have instagram, and I don’t even know if reporting is possible there, but yo, if it is, I’m gonna need to ask for y’all’s help again. Sorry again to put it up on your shoulders, but it’s gotta be done.

(Big thanks to @ask-the-bendys for the images and bringing this to my attention.)

So this happened Wednesday night as the Otters spanked rival London, 5-1

I love how Stromer skates around with his hands in the air, trying to call attention to the theft of his stick…hilarious!

anonymous asked:

Do you have any recommendations on sigils I should put in my car?

There are so many that you could put in a car! The one that comes to my mind first is “safe travel” for obvious reasons. I can list the others that come off the top of my head below:

“clear mind” or “no road rage”
“may this vehicle work properly”
“hide this vehicle from unwanted eyes/attention”
“prevent theft”
“no/prevent slipping (on ice/rain)”
“may I drive with no fear”
“may others be aware of my presence”

Storytellers - Mark Waid & Chris Samnee

How skillful to tax the middle class to pay for the relief of the poor, building resentment on top of humiliation! How adroit to bus poor black youngsters into poor white neighborhoods, in a violent exchange of impoverished schools, while the schools of the rich remain untouched and the wealth of the nation, doled out carefully where children need free milk, is drained for billion-dollar aircraft carriers. How ingenious to meet the demands of blacks and women for equality by giving them small special benefits, and setting them in competition with everyone else for jobs made scarce by an irrational, wasteful system. How wise to turn the fear and anger of the majority toward a class of criminals bred - by economic inequity - faster than they can be put away, deflecting attention from the huge thefts of national resources carried out within the law by men in executive offices.

@hartwinorlose @missbeckywrites who I both want to give a little particular thank you to for really getting on the path to Kingsman and Hartwin. You’re both two lovely people.


Merlin was muttering under his breath when James wandered in to give him a hard time, looking even more sour than usual. Whatever he was involved in left him distracted enough for James to creep close enough to get a look at the center monitor. On it was the mugshot, the unflattering lighting was a dead giveaway, of a young man sneering at the camera. A history that was too small time to attract Kingsman’s attention - petty theft, breaking and entering, possession, intent to distribute - or even close long as the list may have been.

When James spotted the name, however, he knew why Merlin has drawn up the boy’s file.

“Unwin?”

Brokensystem Is Still Dangerous

WARNING: There are triggers of rape, sexual abuse, pedophilia, suicide and self-harm. If any of this is triggering to you in any way, we suggest going to http://brokensystem.tumblr.com now and blocking them immediately and not interacting with anyone on Discord by the name of UndyingERROR#5058.

The following information is why Undying (aka Anna, Dwoosy, Edgy, Orange, Level 1 Gaming, etc.) was removed from Studiotale three months ago and the damage she has caused within. Information may be updated in the future and Studiotale will notify their followers of any changes. We recommend going to @brokensystemisabusive​ for additional information. This post has been tagged for a signal boost.



A few months ago, some of the older members would remember the introduction of an Underswap Papyrus, now nicknamed Studiotale Orange as he became the canon actor for the Underswap Papyrus roles when, about a month after, Studiotale remained silent while Orange posted leaving Studiotale in his blog and saying the comic that was in production was ‘just a dream’, before soon deleting the blog.

Anna was never the one to leave Studiotale, she had been removed for multiple complaints of theft, godmodding, ostracizing, forced character development…

But what we didn’t mention was we were now aware of the abuse she had been putting a member in Studiotale through that was underaged. This was in fear that she would lash out at this member when finding out that when we removed her, we more than encouraged this member to stay and open up to us more, which revealed a lot more damage than we realized.

Studiotale just wanted to stay out of this and we simply disassociated Anna from the group and allowed some members who felt like they should stay continue to interact with her.

However, she has again, and again, attempted to contact our underaged member and when we warned her we wouldn’t be silent of what she did, she continued to message the member. And this is where we are now.

Everything we will be presenting that happened in Studiotale is NOT the first time with Anna. This debates back nine years. We recommend going to @brokensystemisabusive (we’ll update the name as it changes) for any additional information.

Their current blog is now http://brokensystem.tumblr.com and after you have read all the information below, we have made a negotiation with Anna.

-They will no longer contact anyone within Studiotale first. The only person they can have first contact with is Studiotale Error in which to keep them updated of their blog or whatever reason they need to get in contact involving Studiotale.

-They will not allow the Underaged Member of Studiotale to contact them. If they try to contact Anna first, she is required to deny the conversation and contact me so I can transfer the messages myself until the Underaged Member is 18.

-In exchange for not denying their actions, publicly alerting people of the information revealed of them, Studiotale will NOT tolerate hate messages towards Anna and simply recommend NO CONTACT at all and blocking them. (Though, we are aware that she was recently caught sending hate messages to herself, as shown below when she forgot to turn anon on)

With that, we recommend reading through everyone’s testimonials below, especially before attempting to defend Anna. Any posts have been edited to censor people who are not involved, who do not wish to be exposed, or were underaged within context of the conversation.

[Underaged Member]’s Testimonial: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hxPGIwTliBcmVbxSPe0cVVi4LwnpoJP9azdHm6R1oVc

-Proof of pedophilia, gaslighting, forced character development

@askstudiotaleblueberry’s Testimonial: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1kTvKaddtUC80s6U24fzAdkzXpPQwOSa8WNV0e7k_jAA

-Proof of sexual interest in a minor, no notification that sexual conversation was of a minor, forced character development

@askstyansans’s’s Testimonial: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vlAGS5DgF1Pg9MJv4cYuaE_ee97ibXVwIqk3gFdumwc

-Proof of art theft, refusal to listen to negotiation

@askvoidsans’ Testimonial: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1za-nVeL_gq342Zcw2_bvTH7pKY1oaUMHZ6sIzfcSgZA

-Proof of ostracizing, hostility to a cast member, attention grabbing, art theft

@askstudiotaleerror’s Testimonial: https://drive.google.com/open?id=19Y-AEawhSoegnWHa9Ix2zDKBs-VMmCJKtE-jszGhT04

-Proof of sexual interest in a minor, no notification that sexual conversation was of a minor, attention grabbing, ostracizing, godmodding, character theft, proof she was removed and did not leave of her own accord, proof that she had been warned multiple times not to contact underaged member, victim blaming, admittance to pedophilia.

@papercut-papyrus’s Testimonial: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1MJbt3kkhyj8F3zgKKxzQiZL0vclT0QNTp-MbkePWMEk

-Proof of being controlling, condescending, forced character development, harassment to the minor, attention grabbing.

To conclude, Studiotale had hoped to give Anna a second chance and it caused way more trouble for us this way. The only good of it was that the Underaged Member involved was able to open up to us and became just as much a loved member as everyone else. Even when the majority of Studiotale disassociated ourselves from her, a few members stayed, hoping to give her another chance, which she only abused.

Anna refuses to change and will keep asking for more chances.

Studiotale, again, will NOT tolerate any hate towards them and whatever blog they go to next, but we are HIGHLY against trying to contact her at all. Just go to http://brokensystems.tumblr.com, block them, spread awareness within the Undertale community.

Sorry to air our dirty laundry out here for you all, but we will do what it takes to protect our family and anyone else in danger of getting involved. Have a good night.

i cant believe i have to make this post but here we go

i just saw on my dash a reposted version of my own comic that i did 5 months ago, and it had 13k notes. you have no idea how awful this shit is for an artist who’s worked 5 hours for this comic. It’s not the first time it happened, but this is the most notes one of my reposted art pieces ever got, so i’m doing this.

as you can see on the first picture, the comic was posted a month ago. i took the screencap from tumblr user beifong234, who is the reposter. heres the link to my reposted comic on their blog

the second picture is my original post, posted 5 months ago as you can see. heres the link to my original post. its a comic i drew in relation to this picture i drew a day before.

what i’m asking you is to please signal boost this, as i dont want anymore people reblogging the reposted comic (that was reposted, of course, without my permission)

Thank you for your attention.

Attention, art theft!

To my followers and all Madara fans: I prefer not to say negative things, but it’s really necessary. Don’t like and reblog from @madasennin
It’s a person who posts art and ugly edits without any credit or permission. He takes them from everywhere and put anywhere: DA, Pixiv, VK… He was expelled many times from Pixiv but returns again and again under new URL.
This person who is also expressively homophobic. It’s a shame of Madara fandom.
The only manner to fight it: ignore! Don’t feed art thief!

Attention followers! Art Theft Alert!

hydronymphus-blog  asked:

Hello :) I'm preparing for my first convention (as a vendor) and it's starting to make me really nervous. Do you have any advice? I do little clay/resin sculptures like yours, so I thought you might be a good person to ask. Thank you!

If your show isn’t for a few more weeks, I do plan on doing a blog post entirely on this subject. It’ll be a bit more in depth than this one, as this is just a quick bullet point list. :)

  • Make a checklist before you leave! There’s nothing worse than realizing you’ve left something important back home…like I did at ShadoCon by forgetting all my business cards. >.<
  • Bring extras of everything - extra business cards, extra packaging, extra jewelry findings. Better to have to lug a few more things in than run out during the show.
  • Bring glue! You’ll be surprised how much you might end up using it. Also packing tape.
  • Make sure you have a cash box and appropriate change. A locking cash box is what I use. Just use something so your money isn’t in plain sight. Also make sure to bring plenty of change - especially $1’s and $5’s. I usually bring $30-50 in $1’s (depends on the size of the show) and $30 in $5’s.
  • Mark your prices on your pieces. I used to let customers ask if they wanted to know. Turns out, most will walk away if they don’t see a price right away.
  • Bring water and food. Convention food is really pricey. Usually I can spend $40 easily on just two people, and it’s nothing remotely fancy! Water is for staying hydrated throughout the show. Also, when you bring food, don’t bring anything too messy. You’ll more than likely have to make a sale while eating, and you don’t want to leave food residue on your pieces.
  • Invest in hand sanitizer. A lot of it. And vitamins/Airborne. Con crud is the worst type of crud, and it’s always running rampant at big shows. Nothing sucks more than to come home after a long, exhausting weekend, and then spend the next few days completely out of it. Get a big thing of hand sanitizer and abuse it - use it after handling cash, touching people in any way, after using the restroom (yes, even after you’ve washed your hands! You still have to grab the door handle on the way out, and think of how many people have touched that), before you eat, after you eat, touching the table/chairs….basically, be a germaphobe for the weekend and you’ll be fine!
  • Get organized. Buy some plastic tubs/ziplock bags for your stuff. Separate them into groups of how you will display them. This cut my display set up time nearly in half. It also lets you keep a good idea of what your inventory is.
  • Keep a record of your purchases I’m not sure if you have a business license/tax certificate or not, but even then this is a good idea. It will let you know just what your profit really is for the weekend. Did you rent a room? Buy gas? How much was the table? And food? A lot of these can be written off in your taxes, so keep details and receipts on hand for then. If not keep details anyways. You’ll be surprised just how much of what you make was actual profit.
  • Get a card reader. PayPal or Square both work great - just make sure you have cellphone/internet service. I find people will buy more when they don’t have to use cash. You will have to pay a percentage of these sales to those companies, so factor that into your prices.
  • Find a way to record your sales. Super, super important if you have to file your sales tax as a business. Don’t report the right amounts? You might be in hot water at some point. If you don’t, it’s a good idea because you’ll see how much you’re making per day, what’s selling well, and what the price range of the show is - all invaluable information for the next time you do go back.
  • Get a booth buddy. I know not everyone can have a booth buddy for each show, but I find this to be really important. Even if they can’t be there all the time, at least have someone you can call on to watch your table for bathroom breaks. I rely on my husband for this. grandma-thunderpants will also watch my table for me in a pinch (when bribed by candy :P). The more shows you go to, the more artists you will befriend and the easier this gets.
  • Always, always pay attention to your goods. Theft is a pretty big issue at conventions. It’s easy to take advantage of an overwhelmed seller (this is also another giant plus for a booth buddy - two sets of eyes is better than one!). Don’t let someone distract you when there’s a group of people at your table. Handle sales quickly (and still professionally!) while keeping an eye on all your other merchandise. If you do catch someone stealing and they take off do not run after them! Get a description to con security and they will handle it.

I think that’s a pretty good start. If anyone wants to add anything, go for it! Like I said, I’ll have a better blog post on this later. :)

Oh yes, the most important note - have fun! Take time to look at the other artist tables. Talk to your neighboring booths. It doesn’t have to be just work all weekend. Good luck! :D

art thefts!

Attention illustrators and artists (and friends of them), the tumblr

http://illustrationsblogs.tumblr.com/

is posting hundreds of pieces of art that don’t belong to them, completely unsourced and watermarked with their blog.  If you see an artist on there that you recognize- please let them know so they can report the blog and hopefully get it all taken down.  I already told skirtzzz, brynn metheney and sakimichan.
