I am done

Enough is enough Swen. This fandom has given to me the most beautiful things but it also have taken from me what I love most: making Swanqueen fanart.

This is not a thing that happened just a couple of months ago, no. This has been happening for a lot of time, two years of taking some breaks to clear my mind and not leaving the fandom because ALL OF YOU. Because of all of you I didn’t want to give up but after getting messages on tumblr, youtube, e-mail and facebook like “I hope you have a car accident and lose your hand and this way you won’t make fanart”, “Bitch”, “Loser”, “The fanart of “xxxxx” and “xxxx” is better than yours” “Leave the fandom” “kill yourself” “Don’t go to conventions we are a bigger group of people” “you are nothing” “Don’t make more fanart” “don’t make more fanvids” plus a group of swen on twitter…. I think is enough.

I am tired to be the villain of this story because I don’t like people repost my fanart. I am tired to spend days making a video so that Once Reporter steal them and insult me because I want they remove it. And now everytime I make a video I have this fear they take it and claim it as their own video. I am tired to be critized every time lana, bex or jmo retweet or like something I do. I am tired some people send me hate because I chose Hunnyfresh’s fanfics and not theirs. I am tired some people of this fandom use me to make fanart for them. I am tired the “populars” of this fandom need attention from all of you and take advantage of all of you, and you can be sure I have seen this all these three years and I hate it with all my soul and heart because no one of you deserve that.

I have shut up for a long time and I haven’t upload all the fucking messages they sent me but last year I got 25/40 messages every single day for a week sending me hate because I make fanart. can you believe this? well this is happening.

I only want people leave me alone. I adore making fanart and videos and this fandom killed that part of me and I am angry with that. Because this is not my first fandom, people think swanqueen is my first one when I am making fanart since 2005 and NEVER NEVER NEVER I have lived something like this. This is wrong and awful.

Writing this… is the hardest thing because I know how much you love what I do, I appreciate beyond words your beautiful and wonderful support all these years and I will never never never forget this or you but I am done with Swanqueen fandom right now. Put me on the list (a huge one) of fanartist who left the fandom due to all this.

I am sorry Swen! love you all.

ah! for all those who copy every thing I do… now you will have to make your own ideas… good luck!

Fucking pissbabies need to stop reposting people’s art to their accounts on Instagram/tumblr/whatever, and then harassing the creators when those accounts get banned for, surprise surprise, taking other people’s work, regardless of whether they were the ones who reported or not.

Did you ever think that maybe someone else reported it and that it was removed because, gasp, it was against the terms of use to take someone else’s art and repost it?

Just admit that you do it to get attention and fake internet points and fall back on a sense of entitlement as “fans” when people have the gall to criticize your shitty behavior.

Just like the so-called Lapis fans fall back on “I was abused” to shout down anyone who points out Lapis is a fucking abusive jerk herself (which is one of her most compelling traits).

Just like people harass Pewey or Gregpearl fans because they can’t accept that their headcanons about sexuality aren’t real and having other headcanons that don’t conflict with canon are valid.

Just like Lapidot and Amedot fans harass one of the show’s staff off of social media because they can’t grasp that your fucking ships are not real and aren’t a valid reason to attack someone because you decided they’re attacking your, again, entirely fictional and hypothetical preferences.

Like how Jasper/Jaspidot/Jaspis fans get shit on because drawing them in a non-abusive relationship is treated as the same as condoning abuse. While acknowledging that their relationship is damaging in canon so far is a plus, it’s not glorifying abuse if the art doesn’t depict abuse. Having a crack ship that doesn’t depict something illegal is still a crack ship, but it’s hardly a reason to harass someone. 

Frankly, I don’t think Steven Universe deserves this fandom, and this fandom doesn’t deserve it. It’s a disservice to all the great people I’ve met in this fandom, all the artists who make great art and all the theory-crafters, and the creators of the show for providing something amazing, but it has to be acknowledges that this kinda shit is real and hurtful, like how video gaming has a problem with harassment and politics has a huge problem with it that’s even more widespread in its potential to hurt.

(as a final note, if you have an issue with the tags I use or the topics I defend, I don’t think arguing with me is going to change my mind)

Who Will Protect You? || Peter Parker x Reader

{summary: After Peter Parker witnesses a young superhero who goes by the alias Midnight quickly diffuse a hostage situation at the bank, he begins to admire her while searching for her true self.

His search for Midnight’s identity leads him to Hagstrom Academy [1], where he briefly sees a young woman who reminds him of his favorite superhero. Convinced that she is Midnight, he takes a photograph of her and keeps her picture at his desk to always inspire him to do what’s right, no matter how difficult the situation may be.

However, things start to get a little awkward for Peter when his aunt May sees Midnight’s picture on his desk, and she is completely convinced that Midnight is Peter’s girlfriend! Unable to explain the true reasoning behind why he keeps a photograph of her, Peter must find a way to introduce her to his Aunt May…

Could things get any worse for him?}

warnings: none, just a half naked Peter near the end. But it’s nothing too explicit or sexual, really, I promise.

Just need to YET AGAIN make a public announcement and warning about a gif thief @just-some-teen-hipster

I’m so tired of dealing with rude reposters over and over again. Let me tell you how I always approach when I see my gifs reposted. Like THIS, a nice message asking them nicely to remove my gifs. Because I don’t believe in approaching a problem with rage.  

Many people are nice and say they’re sorry and remove it. But yet too often, what do I get? People telling me I am being rude. Also in this common case A BLOCKING so I can’t send message and the post is still up on their blog! And it’s not only my gifs in this post http://just-some-teen-hipster.tumblr.com/post/158137542855/i-love-gotham

You are so damn disrespectful! I can’t say enough times how much time and effort gif making takes. Gifs just doesn’t fall from the sky for free use! I’m gonna promote this amazing post again for people who don’t understand gif making: http://thepunisher.tumblr.com/post/145622378333/gifs-are-not-witchcraft

Well I have reported you now since I can’t write to you and you seem to think blocking me will solve your ”problem”. Well it won’t. Please don’t reblog from this person!

anonymous asked:

Hi your work has inspired me to start an art blog. But I'm scared to post any of my work because some people will steal work and make it there own. What should I do?

First of all, I’m really flattered that I’ve inspired you to make your own art blog ✧

As for art thieves it’s something you can’t really 100% avoid unfortunately, but it’s certainly worth it for the support from those who enjoy and respect your art! Not to mention being able to be a part of art communities where you can get feedback on your art and mingle with other artists, it really helps you grow as an artist.

There’s ways to prevent it from happening often if you’re really worried, so here’s some tips:

  • First of all remember that the images you create are your property under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and you have the right to have them taken down, most of the websites you encounter will have a DMCA form you can fill out if you go to the help centre and they’ll do the rest.
  • If you go to Google Images there’s an option to search by image, if you search your artworks you’ll get results of where your image can be found around the internet (In my experience I’ve found it doesn’t show every single place it’s been posted, but it’ll pick up most of them)

How Disrespect Drove One Artist to Leave Tumblr (Important, Please Read & Spread This)

One challenge of being an artist is managing how and where your artwork can be shared. Most often, artists will give permission to share their art if they are politely asked. 

However, when they discover that their art has been reposted without their permission, problems can quickly pop up. One such case is this artist below, who was notified that someone reposted one of her works, and went to contact the one responsible, not only to be rejected but also treated so badly that they decided to delete all their art and actually leave Tumblr for good.

The artwork that was asked to be taken down is posted below. 

At first glance it seems like a direct link to the artist’s twitter, but the thumbnail image is fairly large. Upon downloading it from the proxy site, it was 506x731, large enough for it to be reposted and further redistributed. 

Above is the response that the artist received when they asked the individual to remove their content. Even though the person made it sound like they would delete it, they in fact did not.

It doesn’t stop there. The individual then created a video, and told the artist to watch it to learn how links worked. So not only did they not listen to the artist to have the link to their OWN WORK removed, they also treated them as if they knew little to nothing. 

Not having any rights to control how their own work is shared, and being made to feel bad over bringing it up with the site owner, imagine how the artist felt when they scrolled down and saw this message unmistakably directed at them, even though it opens with plural ‘artists’:

Likely demoralized over the refusal to have their artwork link removed, and their mind reeling after reading the person’s rude message directed at them, the artist wrote their thoughts down, shortly before they deleted everything on their tumblr:

((For this part, I sought the assistance of some individuals who were fluent in Korean. With their help, we were able to make a direct translation of the artist’s last messages)):

As one can see, they were clearly upset. From reading their last few words, it seems that part of the conversation between the two parties that were submitted to me are missing, as it seems that there were further accusations from the site owner. 

I asked one of the native translators if they could describe the overall feeling expressed in those words, and here is what they told me:

Keep in mind that repost or link, it matters not when an artist asks for their work to be removed. They made it, they own it. 

Below is another message written soon after: 

The proxy site owner told the artist that if they didn’t want their artworks to be shared, then they ought to either publish them on a private blog, or to change the settings of the artist’s blog so that no public sharing links are visible. There are two errors with this argument. The first one is telling an artist they should set their works to private. How then, are people (respectful people) supposed to find the artist’s work, if none of their work can be seen, either through a recommendation from the artist’s host site, or through the site’s own image search? 

Secondly, how is the artist supposed to meet other people who also share their desire and interest for what they draw? Neither of those points take into consideration of the artist’s feelings on the matter. Besides, telling an artist what they should or should not do counts as overstepping boundaries. Artists do not draw for people. They draw because it’s their passion and they want to share that with others. They should not have to go out of their way or change their routine just because there are people who refuse to be decent and respectful.

The argument that artists should change the setting of their blog so that public sharing options are not visible is also inconsiderate. Is it the artist’s fault that the site they use does not carry the option to customize how their art is shared? DeviantArt is the only one that gives the power to control whether or not sharing through the site is allowed or not (artists may disable the share options). However, sites like Tumblr, Twitter, and Pixiv do not have that option, unless the artist sets their entire account to private, which brings back the first point I made. 

It puts a lid over the artist’s personal freedom and they will get virtually no feedback of any sort if no one can see their work because everything is set to private.

The ‘public link’ displays the artwork in nearly full dimension (instead of a small-sized thumbnail image preview like the ones that Google uses). If the artist allows public linking through thumbnail, then one ought to make sure that the thumbnail is small enough that potential viewers would have to visit the artist’s own site to enjoy the artwork. The artist is the one who deserves the credit, feedback, and number of page views. They are the ones who poured hours of work and time, and the ones who strained their wrists, hands, and eyes to create the picture.

Though there is a link to the direct source, how is there a reliable way to know that people are treating it more as a link rather than an image, if the large thumbnail size nullifies the purpose of redirecting the viewer to the artist’s own page? Put simply, why would I, the viewer, care about seeing how the artwork looks from the artist’s own site, since I can already see everything fully on the proxy site that I follow/visit?

This, combined with the fact that the full thumbnail was completely downloadable if one right click ‘save image as’, makes the link post behave almost the same as a repost that is linked directly to the art. 

None of this would have been an issue however, if the artist was asked for permission. They also wrote ‘Do not repost without permission’ on their blog. But aside from not being asked first, their request was met with refusal. They were patronized and accused falsely of ‘owning the internet’ over simply wanting to control how their artwork was shared. They were directed to watch a short video demonstration:

…which likely felt insulting, considering that the artist can understand English well enough to communicate with this person.

It’s not unusual for artists to abandon their tumblr when enough is enough. What is particular with this scenario is that it is not the repost-like link itself that deeply hurt the artist, nor were they hurt that they were not asked first ‒ more than likely, it was the rude manner in which they were treated and dismissed.  

It is impossible to control every single artwork that is published on the web, however people ought to listen when the artist contacts them personally and requests that their work not be used. With this case, the artist’s feelings were brushed aside, their rights were completely ignored, and their polite request dismissed without any consideration

And so, the artist likely thought that it would be less stressful if they shared their artwork on a site where they have better control. If they weren’t respected where they are, they may have felt that taking their hobby somewhere else would be better. Not long after those messages, all work was deleted. 

What had happened was one of the points in my post about What Art Theft Does to an Artist. Even though the proxy site owner did not claim the work as their own, they acted as if they did.

This is the first time I’ve seen an artist leave a fandom because of something like this. 

If doesn’t matter what the excuse is. When the creator of a work, whether it be an artist/writer/translator/scanner/editor makes a request to have something that belongs to them removed, regardless of whether it’s a full repost or a link, whether they gave permission to you previously or not ―

You Remove It. 

Simple as that. 

And before it is brought up: artists and such creators do not go running around asking people to take down their work for no reason. When they do it, it’s because they are not okay with how you shared it. Nor do they spend their time looking up who reposted their artwork; they are reported these things, and that is how they know. 

It baffles me where do some people get the gall to treat what they never made themselves, what they don’t even understand the process of making, like it belongs to them in any way. Artists are not machines that regularly dispense pretty pictures for you every few days for you to take and make your blog/site more attractive/interesting to people. 

They have lives too, and they feel deep pain and depression over things like this. They even feel anxiety before they publish their work, because they know there’s always a risk that comes with what they do. But they still do it because they love drawing, and they love to share it with friends.

So why don’t they have the right to control their work? Why are there some who are so engrossed in their narcissism that their own website takes precedence over the artist’s own feelings and welfare? 

As a community that seeks to protect artists, we need to be more educated about this issue. 

Therefore, once you read this, please reblog and spread this as much as you can. 

If you have a favorite artist or few whom you follow on Tumblr, think about how you would feel if something like this happened to them. 

The extent of reposting

You’ve been warned

This will be a really long post, and I’ll be addressing one account in particular, but will be referring to multiple accounts along the way. This is just a small, tiny part of the reposting community, and if you’re an artist who wants to protect their art, please continue reading as I will be showing proof that, reposters do not win. This is your art, your creation. Not theirs. 

Let’s say hello to this person:

anonymous asked:

Hello! I've seen you have trouble with someone reposting your photo and being a little shit about removing it. That's really mean and no one should have to go though this. I don't know if you know this but since the original photo is yours you can report the repost to tumblr (tumblr. com/ abuse/ misattrib) and they should remove the repost AND all the reblogs of the repost withing a few days (and the person might even get into trouble for going against the community rules). I hope this helps!

Hey lovely, thanks for being supportive, I really appreciate that. 

The situation is very frustrating. I have emailed Tumblr Support about this but they are being incredibly slow getting back to me. I really hope that they will be able to sort this crap out because it’s just not right. 

It’s really nice to know that other people have my back on this. 

Hope you’re having an awesome day anon 😘

anonymous asked:

Well fuck you I'll repost your shit and you can't stop me. how the fuck then are you going to get your art out there

You know, I’d been holding onto this for a few days. Because while I did want to address this. I had no intention of prioritising this over the folks who have sent genuine queries and messages of support.

Now, the first thing we can establish is you are angry with me. You are angry at my policy on reposting my art.
Really, it’s very interesting you say I can’t stop you. You wouldn’t have sent this message if you were sitting pretty on your own account, with your reposts untouched. You sent the message because I did find you. Because I did stop you. 

Furthermore, I like to keep an eye on the people I’ve caught. Hiding behind Anon hasn’t helped you that much because there’s only a handful of people you could possibly be. Declaring your intent to continue reposting just lets me know where to look.

Since I check back on reposters. I’ve noticed that some of the accounts I’ve reported have been removed. I assume this means that the multiple breaches of policy have resulted in the removal of the entire account. So. Your reposts will be worthless. No matter how many times you do it, you’ll be taken down and have to build up again from nothing. And let’s face it. Repost accounts don’t do anything another repost account doesn’t already do better. 
But me? I could disappear right now, delete my account for the fun of it. I’ll still be able to draw. I’ll be able to provide something of value to others. 

Which brings me to your next point. You think people can’t find me without you. Well, you found me. The other reposters found me. Currently 18,688 Tumblr users have found me (20% of them probably bots or secondary accounts of course). I am not hurting for attention.
I also fail to see how useful uncredited reposts are to me. Even with credit they have mainly served to turn my work into a free commodity. The more my work is posted by others the more likely a case of mis-attribution will happen. Hence my stern stance on reposting.

So what really confuses me is you obviously think of what you do as a service. But you also use this ‘service’ to threaten me. You want me to be upset that you repost, but you think you help me by reposting? So which is it? Am I to be upset you plan to repost my work? Or upset you wont be giving me another 18k tumblr followers?
Frankly the contradiction proves one thing to me. Despite whatever grievance you have against me, you know that I’m in the right. I don’t have to hide behind Anon. I can safely put my personal details down on a claim form because the art is mine. I have every right to take you down over and over. 

If there is anyone who can’t be stopped?

It’s me.

This is why we can’t have nice things

*sigh* Let’s be clear here: I’m not looking for a fight. I’m just doing what I do and reporting art theft.

Remember how I said in this post that not all dubbers are honest? Obviously, there are many rookie dubbers who make videos and you don’t see or hear much about them, either because their dubs aren’t good or because the artist finds out and gets the video removed early on. And then sometimes…you have people like Natalie Guest. She is one of the more popular dubbers in the fandom and I can count on one hand the number of artists that I know she’s actually gotten permission from.

NOTE: this is in regards to her content from the Miraculous Ladybug fandom. I have zero knowledge on anything of hers from other fandoms.

Go look at her youtube videos. If you’re an artist and I have not already contacted you to show you that she’s reposted your artwork, go look. I mean it. You may just be there.

Artists I know for a fact she’s stolen from: @ferisae​, @qookyquiche​, @hchano​, @edendaphne​, @hubedihubbe​, @australet789​, @whos-that-foxi-lady I’ve confirmed w/ them and they proceeding how they see fit. You don’t need to say anything to them.

She also has artwork up by users @ceejles​, @edorazzi​, @sakura-rose12, @elithequeenbee​, @shesellsseagulls​, and @spatziline​…. and these are just the people I recognize. There are at least half a dozen I do not. I do not know if all the works by them are stolen or not.

From what I understand, the artwork by deviantart user ipku is being used with consent, and @shishitsunari​ also said she has given her permission.

Some of you might think, “Oh but look, she credited them!” Yes, she did! And for some artists that’s enough. For others, it’s not. Remember children: reposting without permission is stealing. We’ve been over this.

Now, there’s also been a bit a bit of drama surrounding her. Don’t ask me about it because I was not involved and I am staying the fuck out of it. But from what I’ve heard, people who’ve tried to confront her about her behavior have been met with a wall of white knights and excuses, along with reasons why she didn’t steal or can’t be considered at fault for her actions. Among other things.

So, really, I’m going to advise that you don’t go pick a fight or anything.


If you don’t mind her having your artwork up then aight. You do you. Have a nice day and I hope you are blessed w/ cookies or something else sweet.

If you do mind, based on the experiences of one of the artists she’s stolen from, talking to her isn’t going to get you anything but a headache. Just flag and move on. (If you’re unsure how, read this.) I also hope you are blessed with sweets.

Everyone else:

Well, if you see an artist on her page that I didn’t list up there, let them know. They can deal with it however they see fit. If they don’t know what to do about it, direct them here.

Do not try to talk to her, don’t leave comments on the videos. You’ll just get the white knights and fans on you.

If you take issue with this post:

¯\_(ツ)_/¯  I take issue with someone who regularly steals from my mates and gets away with it.

A message to all artists, writers and edit makers.

This is particularly relevant to those who make art or fics based on crossovers, headcanons, AUs and memes. 

I’m sure you know people often have similar ideas for these kinds of things all the time. I recently repainted a panel from Attack on Titan manga to resemble a character from another. Another blogger came to me several days later claiming to have had the idea before me, and accusing me of stealing it from them. They had created something visual similar, five months ago. Five months ago, I didn’t read either manga. I didn’t even know who one of the characters was five months ago. They asked me to take it down, and I refused, because I had never seen their post before, let alone their blog. I had the idea completely independently from anyone else, and it was clear from the tags on my post that this was not a revolutionary idea, lots of people had recognized the similarities between the two characters. I feel justified in my decision to not remove it. I did not intentionally steal the idea from anyone on this site. Unfortunately for the other artist, mine received more recognition, and for that I am sorry, but that’s just how these things happen on tumblr.

So I suppose the artist reported the post. I don’t know if anyone else did, but it has since been completely deleted from the site. staff  listened and it has been deleted from my blog and to my knowledge those of everyone who reblogged it too. Of course there were visual similarities, the character we were depicting has a trademark look. If I had done it any other way, no one would get the joke!

What I am trying to say is that staff do not appear to understand this. It seems they have no discernible system to recognize the difference between instances like this and actual reposters and art thieves which remain a crucial problem on this website, and worst of all, many go unpunished. To the staff, you are not helping by deleting posts like mine. To artists and writers, be vigilant. I created something to share with my friends and followers, to make them happy and it was spoiled by one rather petty blogger. Just be wary that when it comes to the act of art theft and reposting staff basically do not know what they are doing, and you may have your creations deleted without warning or proper justification.

ART THEFT - signal boost please!

okok so I hate to be that Tumblr police getting on everyone’s backs and I’ve never done a post like this before, but I’d like to make a call-out post about @nishinoya-yuu-bae and @nishinoyabae (whom I suspect to be the same person running two blogs but I might be wrong lmao so please correctly me if I’m wrong and I apologize ahead of time!)

however, these two blogs keep REPOSTING ART that does not belong to them, without any credit to the artists whatsoever. The first blog also went as far as to taking others’ work with the original watermark covered by theirs. [1] [2]. As a mediocre artist and someone with common sense lmao myself, I feel that this is highly hurtful and violates Tumblr’s community’s rules and guidelines.

The second blog whom I believe has blocked me after I sent them a very kind message which I will take a screenshot of under the cut lmao, does not add their own url watermark. However, their act of ignoring my message, blocking me so that I can no longer contact them, and posting another art by the artist @viria and wanting to have 1 more follower so they can reach their first 100 is completely incomprehensible and incredulous to me. They have also posted many other posts belonging to other artists. [1] [2] [3]

I (and a friend who shall remain unamed) have messaged @viria and @headliqhts about reposts of their art works, and I have also sent a message to Tumblr @staff to try to get the content removed, but because I am not the original artist of these stolen works, they have refused to do anything about it unless the original artist claims their work.

I don’t know all the artists in there so I can’t contact them all, but if you know the artist, please let them know so they can file a report! ART THEFT IS REAL AND NOT OKAY.

thanks for reading my salt of the day, peace out friends. I understand that this isn’t the happiest thing you want on your blog, but if you can, please signal boost this! <3

anonymous asked:

Emily, sixpence reported my blog and it got deleted. All because I asked her to stop reposting images of mine that were photographed by ME. I had sooo many good posts on there and I don't want to remake. I know this happened to you before so how do I get my blog back? Please help :( you're absolutely stunning by the way

Ahhhh, that’s awful. You need to contact tumblr at support@tumblr.com and explain the situation and they should reinstate your blog because you haven’t violated TOS. You may have to send a few emails but they finally got back to me when it happened to me. This blog was actually terminated for “gore” just after I remade it when my previous two blogs were terminated. She reported me and I emailed them because I hadn’t posted anything that violated TOS and I explained what had happened and they responded apologising and reinstated my blog because they figured out what she was doing - literally finding my new blog, reporting it, and then spending forever refreshing my blog until it was terminated. Very bizarre behaviour.

I also suggest you fill in a copyright form and have your content removed from her blog. I don’t ever message people that steal my content anymore because some of them act as if I’m in the wrong for telling them that I wrote the content they are posting and would like some credit. I just always report them and have it removed. You can do that here:


OH, and thank you! If you get your blog reinstated, let me know.

lmao i woke up to a reply from someone i’d messaged asking not to repost my art saying it was okay for them to do it since they didn’t remove my watermark and weren’t claiming it was theirs, and that other reposters have done worse, and that they weren’t looking for a fight???

like no, you don’t get to decide that, especially when the artist asks you not to! an honest mistake is fine, we all make them (which is actually the reason for messaging someone before just flat-out reporting, so they don’t have to get in trouble), but oh my god to just spit in an artist’s face when they ASK you not to use their work without permission/in a way they’re uncomfortable with, ESPECIALLY if you claim to be a fan of said work…

viewership does NOT equal ownership! you get this shit for free, don’t go out of your way to disrespect the person who put time, effort and love into making it so you could see. if they add limitations to whether or not the art can be reposted or reused (which will often be softened if you just ASK THEM POLITELY), you accept them, because that’s what respect is.

they’ve been following my blog for a while, so i guess i’ll report and block them if they still refuse to budge. maybe “don’t respect my art, can’t see my art” will be a good trade.

Stop Reposting SwanQueen fanart

Making a fanart or fanvid is hard.
Build a scene that doesn’t exist in Once Upon a Time is hard and take a lot of hours.
Making a fanart, manip or video is not like ‘yeah I am gonna make it because it’s a moment’.

If someone think this is easy, let me tell you it is not.

It’s not like sitting in your chair in front of your computer and make fanart in 5 minutes.
Making a good manip or fanart take time. You have to focus on the screen for hours. Looking for the best scene, looking for that glance, for that smile, for that gesture in every single episode and take the screencap.
You open photoshop and start the manip or the scene you have in your head. Yes, YOUR vision. YOUR story. YOUR creation and make it real in photoshop.
And you can do it because you had to learn how to do it. Watch a lot of tutorials and be in front of the screen for hours trying to do what you watched in the tutorial.
We know how to do it because it took a lot of time learning how coloring, how to use photoshop tools, how to use layers, etc.
You can’t make this in one day or two.
When you see a fanart, you have to think of all the preparation the user had to do before.

It’s not easy. It’s hard. It’s difficult but we love making this.
Because it’s difficult to avoid that feeling inside when you are watching Once Upon a Time and an idea comes up to your mind. It’s so beautiful to see your creation in despite of all the hours you were in front of the screen.
And when it’s finished you only want to share it with all the Swens. Not to get RT’s or FAV’s. Not to be like “famous” (because we are not. It’s just for fun. It’s not our job. We are not healing anything. We are just people making this about a tv show).

When you finish a fanart or video, you only want to share it with all of you. Because we love SwanQueen and all related to them.

However the sad moment for us, the fanart makers and vidders, comes when people repost your little baby, your creation.
When they delete your signature and upload the fanart like their own creations, or cut your manip to make other fanart. Without credit. Without saying you a word. Without consent.

And when you see your fanart on tumblr, twitter, facebook, without credit or upload it like their own fanart make you sad , upset and angry.
And you are the villain of the story when you ask if they can remove it from their social media. And we are the rude here when you don’t want your own fanart in their social media.

At this point you think, what would happen when we are talking of fanfics? Oh dear… This is different, isn’t it?
If someone takes a fanfic and delete the tittle and upload it like their own story, it’s a crime and people report it.
However when it’s a fanart, only few people report that.
It’s easy to press “save it” and upload without credit.

A lot of fanart makers say “yes” when a swen ask if they can use the fanart. It’s a pleasure and honor someone “wants” your work in their headers or computers.
We are ok if you ask us before.

This hurts more than words can describe.
I have seen how people used my swanqueen fanart for contests. I have seen how people made a manip with my manip. I have seen my videos in other youtube accounts, I have seen how people deleted my signature or cut my fanart to upload it in their tumblr.

I think it’s enough for us, for fanart makers and vidders.
You like seeing new fanart and manips, because you can see swanqueen more real with images or videos.
You support writers when you see someone is stealing their fics. Support us too.
Because we do the same. We “tell” a story through images, scenes and manips.

Stop saying we are rude when we don’t take requests. We are not machines.
We need to feel that “thing” inside and we need to feel inspiration.
Stop demanding covers for your fanfics and get angry when we say no.

If you like our stuff, do something. And report it. No repost it.

Thanks so much for your understanding and support.

I won’t sign this post like misslane but all the swens who make fanart and videos and spend a lot of time making SwanQueen more real for you.

One Important Thing to Make Clear

I have seen many posts where gif makers, artists, graphic makers, etc on tumblr try to get a reposter who has stolen their stuff to stop by making a PSA post. Often times they are unsuccessful, and they are left wondering what to do.

Here is the thing I want to make clear:

If you are the ORIGINAL CREATOR of the content, whether it is fanart, an edit, or a graphic, you have EVERY SINGLE RIGHT to submit a DMCA Copyright Notice to Tumblr to report the stolen content. 

It does ask for your address and phone number, but they generally will not call you or mail you anything if all you need is for them to delete the thief’s repost. 

So do not feel intimidate by the form, it is there solely to help you. 

Rather than trying repeatedly to ask the thief to stop, or to delete their stolen content (which still doesn’t take care of the leftover reblogs), Tumblr can remove everything so you don’t have to worry about it eventually getting more notes than your original content. 

And if you’re worried that Tumblr will ignore your submitted form, rest assured, they take these forms very seriously. 

I don’t know how many creators on tumblr are aware of this help source, but judging from the amount of help posts I see, I’m guessing not enough. 

The form is meant to empower you as the creator to protect your stuff. Please don’t be afraid to use it. 

vergess asked:

I would like a story which I can reblog with the following tag: In which one of these fuckwits is a dragon and keeps hoarding things in the local duke’s signature color in the hopes that he will ride out to confront him in person because look these knights are cute and all but he’s a dragon they don’t really stand a chance okay so could you please come talk to me in person look I have a whole cave full of your fav color, that’s how human courting works right?

I hope you know I just sort of stared at this for like a minute before cracking up laughing.

Was supposed to be a drabble but was accidentally over two thousand words.

Absolutely ridiculous crack. And reposting as an actual post, since posting as an ask messes the formatting up. (It’s also now on AO3.)
