do not reblog from

Okay, this really needs to stop 

Y’all, please do not reblog, interact or do anything with any posts that come from @thelinkbreath because literally every single thing they post is stolen, uncredited artwork. I could go through their entire blog and would be able to identify, 95% of the time, just who they had stolen from. They don’t have their inbox open so no one can contact them and this is the second time I’ve had to make a post about them. I’ve had to message multiple people to let them know, as well. 

Please do not support them. Don’t like their posts, don’t reblog their posts, do not do anything with them. 

However, please give this a reblog so that other people can see because I’m really tired of going through the breath of the wild tag and seeing the hard work of artists being stolen just for some notes.

Hello! I'm a new artist here and I saw your art and absolutely fell in love! your art style is so calming and idk it just makes me happy. also, do you have any tips on how to run an art account? i'm still pretty new to all this. thanks, and have a good day~ :)

Oh my gosh, hello! That’s such a kind thing to say, thank you so much, you’re so sweet! 

That’s so awesome you decided to make an art blog! Welcome, friend! As for running an art account, I kind of have a few bits of advice! I ultimately believe it’s how you want to experience and run your own blog, and there’s no ‘correct’ way to run an art blog, but I can still offer some info based on my own experiences! (Other people may have different ones!) These are mostly from my experience running a fanart blog and it might be different with original art or other types of art?

1. Watermark or sign your work! You already do that so you’re ahead of me, and I know this is so obvious but it took me about a year and a half on this blog to realize the importance of it! From reposting, to lessening likelihood of art theft, it is a small thing that shouldn’t be overlooked. I initially never did it because I didn’t believe my work was worth watermarking, but I learned that doesn’t matter, if it’s yours, your name should be on it!

2. Have a tagging/organizing system! This is fairly self-explanatory, but it’s helpful to me (especially if you post a lot of stuff that isn’t your art) to have a tag just for your artwork? And tagging by fandom/content can be extra helpful too, because it appears in the main tag and more people are likely to see your work. And then one for asks/replies - sometimes if you get repeated/similar questions you can find things a lot easier!

3. Art-only blogs: I notice two main types of art blogs - those who only post their art on them, and others who reblog other things but also post their art - often they have an art-only blog as well, where they reblog from their original post. There’s no better way to do this, but observing just from other people, those that also reblog other peoples’ things tend to be more active/gain followers or people meeting them more quickly? But then their art blog is there for people who just want to follow for the content they create. 
Mine is a my-art-only blog for the most part, initially it served as an archive of sorts, but started to grow a bit! It’s a more comfortable choice for me, so there’s no right or wrong way to do this!

4. Interaction: Try talking to other artists - its a lot easier meeting in fandom spaces because you already have some things in common to talk about! But even before, when I was in the Sherlock fandom, I met a lot of watercolor artists (I did only watercolors back then). It’s really nice to have some art friends because you can cry over each others art and motivate and advise one another. I found a lot of motivation and encouragement from my art friends drove me to continue where I would usually just stop making art by now. 

5. Try not to compare yourself to others: Online especially, it is almost inevitable you will end up doing this at some point, and while its fine to use comparison as motivation to continue/inspiration, doing it obsessively can do more harm than good. I read tags on my work sometimes where people say things along the lines of “I won’t ever be as good as this” or “throwing my art away/burning it etc right now” and it makes me sad because everyone is learning at their own pace, and I don’t believe works have more value over another. This is something I’m really ‘passionate’ about because I fall into this trap way too much and have to talk myself out of it (again, having art friends help a lot too). 

6. Having an art blog should be a good experience! It’s a wonderful thing to have, to every artist out there, they are sharing a part of themselves and stuff they worked hard on, and that’s such an amazing thing! It’s brave for you to put your stuff out there! But also yourself and your wellbeing come first, and I know some people can get into negative spins or a lot of stress over their work. I see this in artists who are starting out, as well as those who have had blogs for years. Know it’s always okay to take breaks/hiatuses and whatever you need, it’s okay to ask for help and advice, you have to do what is best for you.

I feel like this is getting long, but it was really interesting to talk about! I’m still growing and learning as an art blog! In short, it’s ultimately about what you are comfortable showing/doing, and running an art blog should be a good experience. Your work is so beautiful by the way! You have a great eye for color! It’s so awesome you have started an art blog, and I hope you will continue to share your work, I look forward to seeing more of it!

Thank you for 400+ Follows

I’d just like to say thanks for all the support! We’ll continue to update weekly on Saturday. (I changed the schedule from Sat morning to Sat night.)

Do reblog and share the comic and leave comments. We love hearing potential theories!

Also, here’s a challenge: Why did Yan Guang insist on killing Pang Xi? (Hint: Read it closely)

In honor of DEH’s 9 Tony noms, I will be sending pictures of the most amazing trees!

Reblog if you’d like a tree in your inbox! (Please have your submit box open)

Clearly that website is mistaken. She always was and always will be number 1.

Do not reblog the posts from @theheromaster please!

We have been contacted by few persons about this user who is reposting from many artists pages without credits and their consent!

We have contacted them politely about it, showing them the original artists and explaining they didn’t allow reposts like this.
Sadly, they have blocked us immediately, giving us the smartest answer :

We have also heard from an other user that they have deleted the reply on their posts that was giving the credits to the artists!

At this point, they are aware they’re doing something that goes against the artist’s wish.
They just don’t care!

We’ll now of course contact the artists concerned, but we also count on the fandom to not reblog more from them!

Please signal-boost this PSA  and block the user to not reblog any unauthorized reposts in the future!

Thank you for reading and be careful~


Do not support reposts, respect the artists and encourage them on their pages!

That’s his story. You wanna hear mine? Hmm? FP was a mess. He was stealing from the company and selling stuff on the side. All things considered, I was pretty generous. [So generous you didn’t give him a second chance?] Of course I did! You have no idea how many times I bailed that man out of jail. Son … when someone is drowning, you can try to save them.

SNAPCHAT ADVENTURES 🔥🔥🔥 there was going to be other stuff to go w this image but I couldn’t find the energy to do it ATM (perhaps I will add on later!)

Fancy fusion!! I saw your requests in the tags, guys. I love these besties.

I imagine Steven would love twirling that dress. The petals would fan out and make an open rose! *・゚゚・*:.。..。.:*゚:*:✼✿

[More fancy gems!]
