What did I say earlier about fan artists being whining little pussies?

OVER THREE THOUSAND PEOPLE COMPLAINING BECAUSE OF A POST A COMPLETE STRANGE WITH AN OPINION MADE ON THE INTERNET. Yes, three thousand, and I wrote this this afternoon.

Guess what? I don’t give a fuck, I’ll keep uploading, and I’ll only give the source if I feel like it.

Didn’t like it? You’re cordially invited to go fuck yourself.

I’m on MutilatedMan’s side. It’s not like you actually made the character. Get over yourself, no one is making money off of your “art work.”

No one is making money of course, but we COULD be making money if people would source their art more often. First of all I really don’t like that you put “art work” in quotation marks like that it implies that we’re not making real art so that’s one reason for me to side eye you, you do not get to decide what real art is or not, nor does anyone else. Second of all without fanart, fandoms would have very VERY little to grow on and amuse themselves, fanartists are a huge and very important part of the fandom and I don’t think you’d have a lot of fun in it without them, the LEAST you can do is source your shit, so that if ANYONE is interested in the art, maybe the artist can grow, be heard of and eventually make money off their art!!!! WOWZA WHODATHUNKIT??

And third, please don’t devalue art, I don’t think many people understand that it doesn’t just take hours or minutes to make a nice doodle or finished picture, IT TAKES A FUCKING LIFETIME SO YALL BETTER GET SOME RESPECt

How can people stand to be such idiotic little twats?

If I draw something, especially fanart, and someone reblogs it without a source, it not only hurts me, but it fucks over someone else viewing the image and wanting to see more of what the ARTIST has. 

Say you’re on tumblr, you see a really nice piece of fanart from a series you’re really into, and you think “I wonder if the artist has anymore artwork for that series?” But the post you saw the art on wasn’t from the original artist and it’s not linked to the original artist. Or, in the case that you’re a cosplayer, and say a fanartist has drawn a very lovely design for a character from this series, like a formal outfit or an AU. You see this picture and want to cosplay it, but would like to see if the artist has anymore pictures of this design from different angles or would make a reference so you can make the cosplay. Oh, but the picture you found on your dashboard is just a repost with no source.

There are DOZENS of reasons you need to source the art you post if you didn’t make it yourself. But the number 1 reason, which this MutilatedMan person and n3vvrmind seem to not understand, is to NOT BE A FUCKING ASSHOLE. 

Congratulations on winning this weeks douchebag awards.

The part that really bothers me is that if people can take the time to draw something that may take them days to finish, I think you can spend 5 minutes sourcing it.

There are so many things wrong with this.

More often than not, fanartists do not get paid for their works, so making fanart isn’t something that needs to be taken up with whoever has rights to the characters.

Also, without putting a source on, you are claiming the work as your own and showing disrespect to the original artist. Even if you don’t intend (which people usually do not) to claim the artwork as your own, you are implying that the artist was not an integral part of the artwork.

On top of that, you’re saying the artwork shouldn’t even be claimed as legitimate because the characters are not by the creators. That’s clearly why we all think BBC Sherlock, WB Sherlock, Elementary, Merlin, Camelot, the reboots of Star Trek and Star Wars, Nolan’s Batman, Garland’s Dredd, Les Mis, and any adaptation of any original media ever is not legitimate.

This sort of attitude to fanworks disgusts me. Just because the subject of the work is not original or the fanartist isn’t some high and mighty officially paid person doesn’t mean you can treat the artist like trash. If we found a screencap from a movie we liked, every single on of us, while sharing it, would mention what movie it came from. Why can’t we take some time off to do the same for artists?

I got an e-mail from CF’s convention crew saying that artist booths were open early for us, as a ‘loyalty bonus’. I can’t attend it this year due to a pre-planned family holiday, yet I’ve been doing so for the past 6-or-so years, so I’m a tad disappointed.

which is good enough reason to draw fawn!Charles because things like this make me happy ok? ok

This Is The House That Doubt Built

Don’t get me started on what ‘it means to be alive’, you’re lying to yourself and yet still you act surprised; because you’re scared! Can’t come to terms with what you are. The wolf in sheep’s clothing will only lead you so far.

You’ll wait, and they’ll go. Because in the end we all end up alone, so just wait…you’ll know.

Forget everything just for tonight we’ll, sing like everyone when they’re alone. Because I’ve been waiting for a night to sing “Whoa, whoa”.

I rely on myself, just making sure that was clear. I’m not in need of your crutches; I’ve faced all my fears and I won what I knew I could have. 

Life is not a punch card, make the best of what you have.

But don’t wait, just go. And when you find yourself please let me know. It’s not too late, just let go.

Forget everything just for tonight we’ll, sing like everyone when they’re alone. Because I’ve been waiting for a night to sing “Whoa, whoa”.

Let’s believe that if we all stand together, we’re a force that will shake the whole world. For once, we’re doing something right when we sing “Whoa, whoa”.

And the end is not about what you have, and the end is not about where you wanna go, and the roads you take to help you get there. I hope you think that’s fair?

Because you’ve only got one life to lead, so don’t take for granted, those little things. Those little things are all that we have.

Forget everything just for tonight we’ll, sing like everyone when they’re alone. Because I’ve been waiting for a night to sing “Whoa, whoa”.

Let’s believe that if we all stand together, we’re a force that will shake the whole world. For once, we’re doing something right when we sing “Whoa, whoa”.

Because I’ve been waiting for a night to sing “Whoa, whoa”.
