Hi gemsona fandom! Long time no see, hope you enjoyed the “Wanted” special and got some new ideas from seeing Homeworld!
Recently people close to me and I have had a lot of issues with our gemsonas and artwork being stolen, mainly by RP accounts on instagram and tumblr. It seems like a no-brainer but I guess it’s worth repeating:
Do NOT use someone’s gemsona/OC on roleplay accounts without express permission from the creator. Make your own character!! Gemsonas are often self-inserts, taking them is very personally intrusive and feels gross, man. Taking the character to roleplay is even worse- you’re misrepresenting them, changing their personality and using them to gain followers and fandom reputation. That’s a whole ‘nother level of theft.
Do NOT use someone’s artwork for blog art, icons, or any other personal/aesthetic use without express permission from the creator. Some artists are nice enough to allow this if you ask, but some art is personal and not meant to be used! ASK THEM FIRST.
DO NOT REPOST ARTWORK ON INSTAGRAM, TUMBLR, PINTEREST, OR ANY OTHER SITE WITHOUT EXPRESS PERMISSION FROM THE ARTIST!!!!!
Reposting or using artwork IS NOT okay just because you actually credited the artist. YOU NEED PERMISSION TO POST FIRST AND FOREMOST.
Just because an artist isn’t active in the gemsona fandom doesn’t mean their OC is up for grabs or any less their creation.
Please reblog this (especially rp blogs!) and let younger people in the fandom know that this isn’t okay. Stop reposting art and taking other people’s OCs. Don’t interact with RP accounts with stolen OCs/art. Protect artists in your community!! Report them!!
It’s really unfortunate, situations like this make artists and creators want to take down drawings, stop posting their OCs and leave fandoms after experiences like this..
🐱= Animal that represents them the best
💎=In luxurious outfit
😰=As a silent hill monster
💀=As a robot or animatronic
🌹=As fairy tale character
👗= In a historic period of either muns or sender choice

🐭= As a fanmade pokemon(basicly make new pokemon that looks like your muse)
🐧=As a dere type(Tsundere ,Yandere etc..)
🐉=As a dark souls characters
🐸=As a meme
I colored these a while back for my awesome friend, @my-secret-sketchpad :) Kiane is her OTP and I also adore this couple, so I had a lot of fun coloring these. They are amazing characters and their love is just so pure!
I hope you guys aren’t getting sick of these because they’re so much fun for me. I’d love to do them regularly once/twice a month if there’s the interest.
What you get: A kitten! No. An old shoe? No! A PORTRAIT. Any character from any world or universe. OCs/RP characters, fanart of a character you love, anything you’d like. I’m still a student - above are examples of my work so you know my skill level and limitations but I will give anything a go!

Newt turned his head to see the man he feared the most, Lord Graves. This man was intimidating, he was stern and rude to Newt. The painter was always afraid of this man who undeniably “loved” him. The way the Lord would whisper naughty things into his ear while he painted the man. Even how the man would expose himself infront of Newt, though the painting was just a mere portrait. It wasn’t until he was alone with the painting he heard Lord Graves speak…(to be continued)

The artist-muse relationship is romantic and passionate, and complex,
and I would imagine that would be a hard relationship to have if you’re
not with the person. It requires so much of each other, you have to be
in love with each other.
