anonymous asked:

Hi! i love your art so so so SO much! (and please draw Dorian at some point? I really want to see your interpretation of him <3) Anyways.. i was wondering if you could recommend any blogs who also create ACOTAR and TOG art? Or any awesome blogs within the fandom as well

*ROLLS UP SLEEVES*

Oh boy do I!

First I must recommend my lovely friend and fellow S.J.Maas nutjob enthusiast: Blackbeak - who posts the loveliest edits, artworks and SPOILERS. Be warned! 

As for other awesome artists:

There’s the wonderful Meabhd (damn!)

The amazing Merwild (but seriously DAMN!)

The lovely Jo Painter

The fabulous Phantom Rin

The awesome Tara

*

Lovely new additions to the list! cccrystalclear Project Nelm

That’s most of the S. J. Maas obsessed artists that I know of, but there’s likely more!

I just came to the sad realization that I have no more residential lots to build for Newlyn Hills. I mean, I haven’t finished them all yet (still some decorating and landscaping to do), but there are no empty residential lots, if you know what I mean. All I have left to build are community lots. This makes me sad because all of my inspiration lately has been for houses! XD But I’ll just keep filing those ideas away for another time. 

Now, time for some decorating. *rolls up sleeves*

OOOOO THIS BUDDY WANTS TO GO FOR A ROUND 2

BOIIII I AM FIERY AND I AM READY TO FITE //ROLLS UP SLEEVES

** THIS IS GOING TO BE A LONG POST. Im not putting it under a “read more”, because i dont want my theme to distract from the points im making. Also i want people to read this. I put this in the “long post” tag for courtesy.**

This is a “Part 2″ of an “open letter”/rant/callout post. “Part 1″ is here [X]. If you want to be up to speed on the situation, i suggest giving that a read to better understand this one.

BTW i am not as jaded by my anger and frustration today, but im still fired up. So dont worry about me, this isn’t “fun”, but it is very therapeutic.

Let’s go through this once sentence at a time, shall we?

“I have not received a single word regarding an ARTIST telling me a photo I posted was one of their drawings.”

BOOOOI MULTIPLE artists have contacted you, and all you did was be vulgar and disrespectful to their faces. You threatened to block them, and have deleted evidence of such, because those posts have since been taken down. I personally know these artists, and they are one damning piece of evidence that you have indeed been contacted by at least one of them. I would include myself, but this isnt about me, this is about your actions and your consequences. And BTW, even if an artist hasn’t approached you directly, you better believe a bunch of them have talked about your account and have been salty every since we found you. Per evidence of you being non compliant to our requests– they’ve decided that you may not ever change and youre not worth their time. But boiii, even if they wont give you the light of day besides indirect callout posts- you bet ur bottom dollar that i am very passionate about protecting my friends.

“If one ever does, I will GLADLY give them credit.”

By giving them salty, rude, condescending, arrogant behavior? I have an example right here [X] on an artist being completely done with your attitude towards even considering giving her credit, but once you decided “fine w/e”, she was already sick of it all and just wanted her art taken down instead. She doesn’t want her hard work being anywhere near your foulness.

“Otherwise, I will not be doing a research project trying to find who made a piece of art. If someone happens to know the artist as well, then it will be added.”

**THIS ARGUMENT HAS ALREADY BEEN INVALIDATED IN THE PREVIOUS RANT POST**

“It isn’t me stealing art. It isn’t theft. That would mean I’m claiming the art to be mine which I have never ever done.”

Yes, “theft” isn’t the technical term for what you are doing. BUT, it is an umbrella term for what you are doing. Stealing is taking without permission, and you dont have to “claim that you’re the creator” to take things. Either way, pretending you created a piece, or simply reposting it and not sourcing it, you still TOOK IT from the original owner and have been using it in ways the artist did not want. So, yes, you aren’t an “art thief”, but you’re still a reposter. It’s still bad.

“If anything, artists should feel glad that their art is being shared worldwide! that’s an amazing opportunity for them! I’m sure they would never yell at someone for being “disrespectful” in posting their art as many people are being towards me.”

BOOOI BOI BOI BOI BOI. THIS IS THE SECOND GOLD MINE WE HAVE DISCOVERED, FOLKS. DIG IT UP WHILE YOU CAN.

YOU ARE BEING CALLED OUT RIGHT NOW, BUDDY. YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED OUT BY THESE ARTISTS THAT YOU “RESPECT” FOR THE PAST FEW DAYS.

I have already stated my case about why artists DONT LIKE THIS in this example [X] BUT ALSO here’s other fantastic examples from artists that YOU REPOSTED ART FROM telling the world why what you are doing is sick. [X] ugh, my theme ruins this one, but you can figure it out: [X]

Take a look at these. Look at them over and over. THIS IS IT. YOU CANT BRUSH THIS OFF. THIS INVALIDATES YOUR ARGUMENT. DONT IGNORE THIS.

“These people who are arguing with me aren’t artists themselves therefor don’t understand the concept of owning a piece and someone liking it and having it being shared with thousands of people but the only “issue” is that person couldn’t find out who made the piece.”

BUDDY, YOU DONT UNDERSTAND YOURSELF. ALSO, THAT IS THE ISSUE. THAT IS A BIG ISSUE. I WILL POINT TO THE EXAMPLES ABOVE UNTIL YOU FIGURE IT OUT.

“People who are making accounts and telling me to kill myself are being over-dramatic and could go to jail and or be fined”

**this argument has already been mentioned in the previous rant post**

“I hope you realize I understand an artist should be shown respect.”

YOU ARE SO CONTRADICTORY. LOOK AT ALL THESE ARTISTS. LOOK AT THEM AND THE ART YOU REPOSTED. YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND. YOU HAVE SHOWN DISRESPECT. JUST BECAUSE YOU “CLAIM TO BE AN ARTIST”, DOESN’T INVALIDATE THOSE OTHER ARTISTS WHO DESPISE YOU. YOU CANT TELL OTHERS HOW THEY SHOULD FEEL. YOU SHOULDNT TELL OTHER HOW THEY SHOULD FEEL ABOUT THEIR OWN FUCKING ART. IF YOU TRULY UNDERSTOOD, YOU WOULDNT ARGUE. YOU WOULDNT DISMISS THEM IF YOU TRULY KNEW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE AND HOW THIS WORKS.

//end rant about above comment

This is stupid drama that needs to be taken care of. You can tell people to ignore you, and people have the right to ignore you, but if that just means you are going to continue your wrongdoings, i cant sit by and accept that. Yes, this is something i could completely avoid talking about, but you know what, even if 1 person stops reposting like this, it would be worth it, because that 1 person could stop many many many others from doing the same. That is why this is worth talking about. That is why i am taking action. That is why we all care about trying to make you understand.

If you cant handle the responsibility of posting someone else’s art- onto a public platform for thousands to see- without consequences, then stay the fuck away from those “save from google images” and “post online” buttons.

The waning sun shone through the window of Rohan’s office and he decided it was about time to finish his work, leaning back in his chair, it gave a groaning creak as he stretched out against it. 

“I can’t believe that you even work like that on Sundays,” Josuke noted from the doorway, leaning against it with he shirt sleeves rolled all the way up. 

“Says the cop that only gets a day off twice a month,” Rohan replied, gracefully rising from the chair. 

“And even then his boyfriend spends the entire day working,” Josuke frowned, arms crossed over his chest, he was almost being petulant. 

“You managed to entertain yourself though,” Rohan smirked to himself as he organised his desk. 

“Yeah, I had a great time mowing the lawn, you really missed out, I mean I was all sweaty and even took my shirt off once,” Josuke said dramatically, mock wiping his brow with a flourish. 

“You should have taken some pictures,” Rohan said as he crossed the room toward Josuke, the other was obviously disappointed by his reaction and Rohan really got a kick out of that. 

“Hey Rohan, remind me why I fell for you,” Josuke said, a rhetoric he often expressed another effort to tick Rohan off. 

“I have no idea,” Rohan said, smiling up at Josuke as he stood before the other’s wide chest, “but I’m glad you did,” he added, leaning up on his tip-toes to press a chaste kiss to Josuke’s lips. As he rocked back down onto his heels, Josuke’s dumbfounded face came into view and Rohan got the pleasure of watching the blush crawl over the bridge of Josuke’s nose and over his cheeks.

“You’re still the worst,” Josuke mumbled, that adorable bashfulness had never left him and Rohan revelled in watching bloom every time something remotely romantic happened. It ignited swarms of butterflies inside the pair of them and Rohan supposed that it had to be one of the reasons they’d fallen for each other. 

I’m almost 100% sure that Ryan is straight up following the ‘skinny guy’s guide to looking bulkier’.

Step 1: Raise your trousers waist a little.

Step 2: Tuck your top in.

Step 3: Add a belt.

Step 4: Roll up tshirt’ sleeves to create the illusion of more muscle.

Step 5: Hands in pockets at all times.


And I think it’s super adorable!!

Important Observations about Picard’s Fake Theatre Troupe in Time’s Arrow:

* Picard looks magnificent with his sleeves rolled up

* Bev and Deanna are clearly super-uncomfortable in their constricting 19th-century clothes. I’d love to know if the actresses cooked that up themselves.

* Even to further their cause, Beverly cannot bring herself to act even close to genuinely impressed by Mrs Carmichael’s acting.

* Deanna turning Geordi’s book the right way up is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

In conclusion Time’s Arrow is great but why wasn’t there an entire two-parter just about their fake theatre troupe shenanigans?!
