I won’t say I’m the messiest sketcher but I’m not the neatest.
Aya from the game Mad Father. Wanted to make her a bit more “like father, like daughter”.
Hm? Oh, that posted? That was from back in January, I almost forgot about it.
Love-the-nekos contacted someone from DA in an email and her and her mules were all suspended. All of the “update” on the issue was posted in this journal. As you can imagine, having her account deleted pissed her off more and she threatened me and was stupid enough to ask where I live so she can send her oh so scary gang after me. I cut that short by blocking her from my main Facebook so she couldn’t find any info about me and I reported her again.
She did return as Data-Creator though and has a stolen piece in her gallery but she’s been laying low. She was harassing Nekos and kissing our asses for a while until I pointed out that I had found out the account was hers.

This dress is gorgeous, especially the chiffon version. I’ve seen the dress in person and even got to try it on. There’s a skirt version as well and it’s just as nice.
Please help support her and her business, even if it’s just by a reblog to spread the word. <3
In one of my first art classes back during my time at DigiPen, one of the required books we had to read through had this certain painting. Now, it was nothing special, it was just some boats on water. Rather rough. Turns out, it was created by a man named Alfred Wallis. Wallis was a retired fisherman who took up painting at the age of 70 “for company” after his wife died. He used leftover ship paint with crayons on pieces of cardboard boxes for his work.
This man died in 1942, across the ocean from me. Out of some quirk, I see a piece of his in a book, making enough of an impression on me to look up more about him. From what I can read of Wallis, he started creating art to fill a hole, something just for him. There wasn’t too much care in being right or wrong in what he did, just that he DID.
How do we lose that? If you ask a child if they like to draw, they’ll invariably say “yes.” If you ask in adult if they like to draw, how FEW of them will say “yes?” And I can just guess that the reason is because they think they CAN’T or that it’s just not worthwhile.
I think… I think we have to stop losing the feeling that we can create art. Stop letting the pressure and the critique and the attention and the comparisons get to us. Let’s just make things, make them as best we can, and improve ourselves in whatever way we wish to. You have NO IDEA who you are impacting with what you create, don’t lessen that impact by diminishing yourself.
And that’s the hardest thing to do. But whenever I start in on that downward spiral, I try to think of Alfred Wallis again.
Completely splendid and utterly true.
And so here I go again dealing with art theft, it’s getting annoying, I know.
So this time my chibi’s been either completely stolen or traced and created into a game. The game marker goes by Cartoon Doll Emporium.
Since this is outside of Tumblr, DeviantArt, and Blogger I’m really not sure how to deal with it. I’m more bothered by the fact that they’re probably making money off of this and I’m at the shitty end of the deal - no permission asked and no credit given. I did find their Facebook page and a post showing off a screenshot and link to this game and left a comment there but I dunno how much that will do.
Here’s a link to the game itself, it seems it’s been up for a while.
And of course here’s a link to the original (mine) on DA.
