this is what i get for not putting watermarks

Ok but you know what bothers me? Instagram Astrology accounts. Like don’t get me wrong most are great but it gets under my skin when they literally just screenshot content from another blog, put some aesthetic ass picture over it, and watermark it as if it’s their own intellectual property? Like ??? Let’s fight??? I know I’m not even 6 feet tall and I cry when I see little puppies but I’m more than willing to fight if it means defending improperly cited content??? It happens to my account and I’m betting on other tumblr blogs too and I know I shouldn’t be acting like an egg about it but I 👏🏽am 👏🏽 feeling 👏🏽 petty 👏🏽 and 👏🏽 bitter 👏🏽and 👏🏽ready 👏🏽2👏🏽fight

Omg I accidentally pressed send on that ask hahaha, what I was going to say is I don't get the "lvimagery" woman with complaining about image sharing when she doesn't put watermarks or nothing? People on the internet are always gonna share stuff so make it known you are the artist 🤔

not to bring this drama up a day later but imma answer this k.

i understand her wanting to be credited for her work– and yes watermarks are literally a great problem solver– that being said her statement mostly annoyed me because she specifically sad Tumblr when tumblr is where things are (IN THIS FANDOM) usually sourced and i make a point not to reblog things that dont have a source attached or reposted works. meanwhile instagram and twitter are usually the ones to repost things– gifs, pictures, art from tumblr– without any sourcing at all.

but like go off i guess?

FINALLY done with my Jams charms!!!!

You can get them on a bunch of merch at my Redbubble
I’m also thinking of making them into charms but I’m still unsure on how well they would sell/how the whole ordering process goes? MAYBE SOMEDAY…

A few weeks ago, I posted fanart of Famous Dex. I thought it would funny to have him next to Dexter from Dexter’s laboratory. To my surprise, he liked it, because he had reposted it on his Instagram account. Unfortunately, to my surprise again, he purposely cropped my @ name and signature that was a part of the pic. I know I know, I should’ve put my watermarks somewhere more visible on the picture, but either he or his management team purposely cropped out my name. Why? I’m not 100% sure. Mind you, he has over 1M Instagram followers, and that picture is one of his most liked, standing somewhere at 70k likes (at the time of writing this). I’ve tried contacting him, and was even able to get in contact with someone over at 300 Ent. But, to my dismay, I haven’t heard back from anyone. What should I do? I somewhat consider myself a fan of his, but after doing this, I don’t know what to think. I am more than willing to get in touch with him and talk things out, even willing to do more artwork for him. If anyone out there is willing to help me out, or can somehow get me in touch with him, please, contact me on my Instagram and Twitter accounts @jaggedjosh. I appreciate all the support, thanks!

BBRAE fandom-we need to talk

I am not upset with all of you, just people like this. I know it’s been so long since I’ve updated THIS comic, But the main reason behind it has been because of 

A.) People like above, and People like this: 

B.) Because of ART THEFT within this community: 

and C.) I am unmotivated and depressed within this fandom. And it’s NOT HARD TO SEE WHY. 

Why create anything anymore when I have to put big fat ugly watermarks on my images and still have them stolen by everyone with a facebook page or instagram account? Why draw anything when people are just going to demand me draw what they want when they want for their own benefit but not give a damn about me and my personal life? Why draw anything when I am not going to get thousands of shares or likes? (I am not wanting to be famous here, I just want publicity because I am in need of commissions to help me money-wise.) 

BBRAE fandom. Why do you do this to me..I love the ship so much but it’s so sad I’ve been backed into a corner like this. Not each and every one of you is like this…But most of you are. And that saddens me.

I felt like I should make this after all the bullshit drama with people (usually younger people) consistently taking artwork, usually Goosebumps, from me and a few other great artists on here and putting them in Youtube tributes.

I accept every one who has done it in the past’s apology, but the problem is that it is still happening. Not from them, but from other people. Even with watermarks, they are still taken without permission or credit. Maybe if they could see what the Slappy trio think of it, they’ll hopefully stop? Or maybe they’ll steal this and put it in their videos too, the fucking irony.

Anyway, yeah. I’m really sorry about bringing any of that drama on here, you guys don’t deserve to see that and I should be more adult about it by not making it public. Luckily for me, my art is technically copyrighted and I’ve managed to get a few of these videos down through claiming infringement. It’s usually not my first resort, I always ask that they remove it first, but you know how kids are. Stubborn. 

I’m not trying to call anyone out, but this reply I got on my “DO NOT REPOST” post is part of the problem:

“I get why you’re angry but when you don’t properly put a watermark on all your art that is big enough and in bright enough colors to see, what do you expect? It only makes it easier for the people to repost the art to claim that it’s not yours.”

Artists shouldn’t feel the need to paste ugly ass watermarks all over their beautiful artwork/creations! But many do or have started to because of reposters and art thieves!  This statement is BLAMING THE VICTIM, WHICH IS 100% WRONG. And no offense, but this is the EXACT reasoning reposters use, and it is ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT.  So, please educate yourselves before you start whining about how artists ‘should know better’ and cover their art with their urls 50x over so that ignorant little shits don’t steal or repost them.

Even if you don’t repost, you are still part of the problem if you think this way.

“You know what? I don’t necessarily want to shed my Ygritte character. I absolutely love her; I really, really, really did love her. She holds a special place in my heart. I think that’s an obstacle that any actor who’s fortunate enough to work comes across; it’s really making sure that you play characters that vary, and that you’re able to show your range, and do something that’s not predictable.” (Rose Leslie photographed by Sophia Evans for The Guardian)

MAKE ME CHOOSE
         ↳ @osnes asked: aaron tveit in les mis or catch me if you can

I’m not afraid of stopping / This end could be my start / I wanna live a life / And not just play a part / I’ll walk into the sunset / I’ll sail across the sea / The final word, the last you’ll hear of me / Is goodbye, goodbye to every night alone / Goodbye to lives I don’t own / I’m tired of living on the stage / A life that’s only on the page / The empty lives are in the past / I’ve tried before, but here’s the last / Goodbye

I hope this gives someone the courage to keep drawing. I know it may seem like you will suck forever, but its really not true. You honestly just have to keep practicing regularly and you will get better! I picked up a pencil as soon as my chubby baby hands could do so have I have never put it down.

Keep doing the thing, and get better, Neptune demands it. 

PS- the watermark is for my sketchblog :)


Wonderful job, friend!

“If the artist doesn’t like my edit then get off my account and go stare at your original artwork”

This drives me fucking mad. They are degrading my hard work putting on shitty filters and deleting my watermark to out yours. Saying “edit by me”

“Artists are mad they are receiving attention”
Please use your brain, if you take away my watermark how the fuck will I receive recognition, “credit to the artist” doesn’t do shit. And yet you dare to establish on your profile “credit if you use!!!!” what the hell do you think you have been doing all the time huh.
