IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY
especially since I'm not really a painter and scenery is mostly painted...
Art Theft vs. C infringe vs. InspirationTell Them Apart: Art Theft vs. C infringement vs. InspirationArt Theft vs. C infringe vs. Inspiration by wh1t3-t19Lightning
OKAY people seem to have a problem understanding these things.
This site is absolutely littered with accusations of art theft going around and while some of them are valid there are tons more that aren't. It seems more prevalent in fan art which makes NO SENSE to me because it wasn't ever yours to begin with, it belongs to Disney or Dreamworks or whatever.
Is the use of another person's work in a manner that claims it as your own or earns you some kind of profit (be it a money profit or attention/watchers). This is the stuff to get seriously upset about; somebody posting a picture you drew and saying that they drew it. It's never unintentional, they know they didn't draw it, and though they don't always directly mean you harm they do know that they have taken your work.

Hi, I'm Mad and I'm an annoying little high school nerd. I originally was called Whitetip when I got my account, so I respond to that as well as any of the other names listed above. The name came from a velociraptor in a movie I was obsessed with as a little kid that changed my life and who I would eventually become. Who knew dinosaurs were so important? Heh heh.
I'm a tad bit crazy and prone to "Spock moments" of cold hard logic, but I'm honestly a pretty sympathetic person and highly sensitive to the emotions of others.
I tend to swear a lot, especially when I'm tired or angry or bored (which is all the time), so my apologies in advance.
I do have some issues: I suffer from food allergies and several minor learning/mental disorders. Don't worry, nothing horrific like schizophrenia or whatnot. Just a few deficiencies in areas of my brain that make certain skills challenging (like staying focused or starting tasks) and a couple anxiety disorders. That sounds serious but only because it's a clinical term. OCD is technically an anxiety disorder. That one is mostly dead but its ghost causes me to be highly attentive to patterns and orders and rules. I also have a lot of general anxious energy. This is totally normal to manifest in my artwork. In the rare cases it turns nasty I know where to get help. Thank you for your concern.
POLICY ON FAVS
So um, I really don't like favs. They don't help me at all, and they seem like only an excuse to be able to get back to the artwork, which you won't come back to anyway, because I'm constantly improving and everything else is obsolete, so I don't think that's a legitimate excuse to fav unless it's an adoptable or auction. Just my opinion. If I drew it for you, please just ask and I'll give you the link to sta.sh to download it if I have downloads turned off. So if you'd please, don't press the fav button unless the picture means something to you, or something about it is really, really good.
And tell me what it is! Please! Right now I'm at a point in my life where I have the energy and drive to improve almost daily; I'm young enough to know I'm nowhere near a pro and mature enough to know that new things and challenges will help me grow. What I'm not is psychic. I don't know what you guys think looks good, and I need that feedback sometimes. That's the whole reason I'm here at all; I want to grow.
If you really must fav something for whatever reason, I'd really appreciate a comment on why you faved it. What made it stick out to you? If you can't think of anything other than "it's good", then perhaps you shouldn't be faving it.
Just something to think about.
I'm no serious gamer, but I'm fully capable of playing the following games and playing them well:
-Pokemon (any of the traditional trainer ones and Mystery dungeon: those weird sidegames like Pokemon ranch don't count)
-Legend of Zelda (wii only) (Twilight Princess I'm almost done with and already finished Skyward sword)
-Animal Crossing (Wild World and New Leaf)
These TV shows/series/franchises/whatever you'd call them I really really like (I do not consider myself "a part of the fandom". I work independently and am bored by passing memes. I also do not develop crushes on characters, nor do I "ship" pairings.)
-Pokemon (no duh, it's listed above)
-Star Wars (but not Star Trek)
-Tron (not as much as others though)
-Transformers (movies [though I loathe Michael Bay] and the recent TV show, Prime)
-Major Crimes (lmao I'm such a dorkface)
I don't plan to pursue a career in art but I'll be damned if I ever give it up. I feel cleansed and at peace when I draw; it drains all the black, angst-y emotions out of me and lets me fill the void with whatever feelings I please instead. I have the same thing with writing.
I'm mainly inspired by seeing other people be inspired, which is one of the reasons I frequent this site. I love having other minds around to bounce ideas off of.
