Besides everything that I have going on the side, I want to raise some awareness about a specific person. 
I am not usually one for drama but when it concerns friends and mutuals I have VERY STRONG FEELINGS on art theft and reposting! Especially when I can help it!!

There was a post floating around here:

I instantly recognized this as Simika’s wonderful artwork and I was irritated to see it on here. Just because you put a tiny source link does not mean it is okay to repost without permission! Unless permission is explicitly given you should. not. do. it.

So I messaged this person, you can see the conversation I had with them. They seemed…… ok? Very formal, but all that did was sugar-coat their really selfish intentions. I ended up speaking with Simika about this, as you can see from the screenshot below, as they are one of my mutuals…. I got clear instructions to ask them to take it down. So I sent the screenshot. This very “formal and polite” person who “takes art theft very seriously” blocked me shortly afterwards. They did not take the post down.

… What to do? I’m furious. I cannot report artwork that isn’t my own and Simika does not know English. If maybe you can send them an ask asking them to take down the artwork… I do not suggest attacking, that is never acceptable, but there is a lesson here as well….. Just because you source does not make it okay to repost….. Especially when the artist says so.

it is such a problem, I am frustrated and unsure what to do at this point.


i couldn’t help myself

anonymous asked:

how do you get such good expressions?

hhhh thank you V-V i guess i could do a mini tutorial since i know expressions can be rly hard??? im not a good teacher

always exaggerate when you want the situation to read more intensely. wrinkles around the nose, eyes, and corners of the mouth intensify and deepen when a person’s face exaggerates. like do you want the expression to look like this???

or like 


another example

wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles!!! dont be afraid of them!! they help!!

also, dont be afraid to stretch it beyond realism, especially if your a cartoonist/focus on cartoony styles. i find that raising the eyebrows far off the forehead gives good results, and i know lots of cartoon styles allow for that stretchy-ness. 

another thing that could help, and i dont know why it does but it helps, is to mimic the face you’re trying to draw with ur own face irl. I DONT KNOW WHY THIS HELPS but it does

if you need more help/ have another question about how i do stuff feel free to ask!!
