I know the sound a bottle makes
when it falls to the floor
and I’ve seen the sun rise
from behind closed doors.
and tangled sheets
– it’s beautiful, you know –
the sunrise: pink clouds and navy trees
(the colors are wrong)
but it’s so damn beautiful
when shadows erode
and break away.
I can see it
even from behind these walls
– the moment everything changes
we start to win
we start to win for a while
and I can feel it
the touch of a leaf
blowing in the breeze
100 miles away
– it’s beating –
a little heart on fire
shining golden with the dawn
– it’s blinding –
pounding against the night
can you feel it?
can you see it?
we have fought
– even when we’ve lost –
we have fought
After a day or two of not sleeping, vomiting, and crying, I have come to a conclusion. I will no longer shed another tear over this. I am holding my head high. A fire has been lit in me. I woke up and drew this morning. This was the outcome. So:
For anyone who as ever doubted me, for anyone who has tried to discredit me, to anyone that has ever been bullied online, to any artist that as been mistreated or slandered, to everyone on Tumblr. Let it be known that I AM an artist. That I DO NOT trace artwork done by others. I have used poses from other work before and for that I am sorry. Going forward I will no longer do that, however I have NEVER stolen anything from anyone. I have never cheated anyone. I am a human being. I am not perfect. No one is. No one is so perfect that they can cast judgment on another human being that THEY DON’T know. Here is a step by step process of a piece that I was inspired to do from the recent events that have transpired here. This will be my final post on this site, but it will NOT be my final artwork.
That being said, here is what I do:
I have an app called magic poser that allows you to pose 3D models just as you would a wooden art doll. I have 2 drawing apps that I use. Procreate is what I normally use to sketch out drawings in pencil and Adobe Draw is the app I’ve used recently to ink my drawings and color them. So in some form, yes I trace, but it’s my own work. Every artist big and small, digital or classic pencil and paper does this. It’s no secret. I use adobe draw because I love the bright colors it provides me and the lines are crisper.
Above you see this process.
This is a stand against individuals that want to stop artists from sharing their work with the world. This is stand against cyber bullying, this is a stand against slander and lies. This is for any aspiring artist out there that is being told they aren’t good enough or that they aren’t truly drawing “100%” their work. When you draw fan art of a character from an anime or video game etc, are you a thief because you’re drawing a character that doesn’t belong to you? I mean where do we draw the line? Would that make everyone an “art thief”?
No. It doesn’t. If someone used a pose from something I did, as long as it was a different character and it was done in their style, I would feel honored that I inspired someone. I know I don’t speak for everyone. Going forward, I will not do this anymore. Just to stop any confusion or situations like this ever happening again. And finally… to the fake @prompto-loco page:
If this does not convince you then I’m sorry. I am wasting no more energy on you or that page. It has proved nothing. Will prove nothing. The only thing you accomplished was opening my eyes to so many people that support me that I didn’t even know. I gained followers, patrons, and have had an outpouring of love and support that I could have never imagined. So I thank you, from the bottom of my heart for doing this for me. You inspired me and lit a fire in me that I haven’t felt in a while. I’m about to do some amazing things. Please enjoy the URL. I hope it makes you feel some since of accomplishment. I’m sorry that you wasted so much time and energy trying to hurt me, but it did the opposite. I won’t stop drawing, and I will continue to push forward. Just a warning, you violated the terms of Tumblr. You took drawings that I did and vandalized them while trying to prove your point. They have been notified and are in the process of handling you. If they don’t, that’s fine. Keep the page. It’s no skin off my nose.
This is my final post on tumblr. I love you all and I thank you so much for your support. If you enjoy my art, I am on other social media platforms. You can find me there. You are going to see some truly amazing things from me. Just you wait! Much love to all of you. Remember, use your energy for good. Use your time for positivity and lifting others. Not trying to tear them down. There’s enough bad in the world. Be good.
And to my Artists out there, don’t ever let anyone try to rain on your parade.
So I started rewatching Voltron again last night on a whim, since I’ve only seen each episode once and I wanted to have it all be fresh in my mind when the new season drops on August 4th. And now that I have my plance shipping goggles on, I couldn’t help but notice a few moments that slipped my notice before.
One of which is this scene! It’s taking place right as Lance is considering whether or not to trust the Blue Lion and take the others through the worm hole. It’s a big decision, and as he decides to go through with it, Pidge places her hand on his shoulder.
Now, immediately before this moment, her hand is clenched in a little fist, hovering above him, and she could easily have placed her hand on the back of the chair, like Hunk. But you see this little moment of decision, this very deliberate choice she makes to place her hand on his shoulder as he makes the very tough call to move forward and fly them into an uncertain abyss.
It’s a gesture of true trust and belief, and I love it. ❤️
