I am an artist, and I support artists.

For Sale - Modded 5stardoll Edmund head in WS.

£42 + shipping (£7 UK,£13 elsewhere). I’ll consider offers,I just want it gone.

Edmund is currently sold out on 5stardoll’s website. Hes had modding done to his nose,lips,eyes and cheekbones. The wounds are raised but are only on the surface,no holes have been made in the resin.
The head will come with the eyes shown (imperfect handmade pair) and a certificate. No yellowing or damage,but has a magnet missing in the headcap.

Why “credit to the owner” is one of the shittiest things you can do to an artist.

gabbiness:

I see it on social media all the time. Someone posts art that they did not create, and below the illustration write; "credit to the owner", or makes an amv containing art, with no links or names to the original artists.

This is a really shitty thing to do and let me tell you why.

I work fulltime as a freelance artist. It’s really hard work, especially if you’re just starting out like I am (been doing it for a little more than a year).
You have to constantly share your art and advertise yourself to the world. Hunt work wherever you think you can find it.
There’s a lot of artists out there competing for work, and it’s a constant battle.

One of the most important things for a working artist is to be seen.
Getting an audience, getting people to share your art or talk about it. If the right people see your art, it could lead to work.

So if you post work by an artist, make sure to credit properly! Link to the artists dA/tumblr/blog/whatever. Zerochan and weheartis are not sources!

If you don’t know who made the art, look for the source! There’s a lot of different ways to do this!
If you still can’t find the original art, simply don’t post it.
Don’t. Post. It.

You might just want something ‘pretty’ to have on your blog, and you just “found the art on google!”, but don’t be lazy.
Look for the source and credit the hard work of the artist.

Not adding credit when posting other peoples art is robbing an artist of future work. As dramatic as it sounds, you’re killing the artist.

Had a go at using firealpaca.
The tools remind me of tegaki and oekaki programs,which is nice. Sadly there were far too many bugs (cant press any buttons,program lag combined with tablet lag), that made the whole experience intensely infuriating.

firealpaca - pen tablet problems

I found that my tablet pen was not synced to the brush cursor and the lines were extremely wobbly,so I went to “environment setting” and changed brush coordinate to “use mouse coordinate” instead.

Pen pressure still works and its fine now. I noticed this was a problem for some others so maybe it will help someone.

sample pt 2

The factory told me that the sample will be ready next month,they fixed the magnet system so it caused an extra delay. I only received photos of the grey master so far. I have faith in them,I’m just a bit sad there’s nothing to properly update with. ^^;
