I am way too busy and too old for all of the drama and fapping that seems to happen, so I have resigned myself to blocking rude-ass people at strike two and only making time for the art I love for the groups and people I love.
I will not do artwork for you. Please visit my website if you want to commission me. Paypal only.
I will not unblock you. If you are blocked - you deserve it. Probably for showing me your ass. I don't care that you want to apologize - take it and go. And don't bother my friends by trying to turn them into messenger pigeons to deliver your apology. I don't want it - I don't deal with rude people. Period.
I earned my Seniority and Deviousness Award by being NICE and HELPFUL and RESPECTFUL to EVERYBODY. No, I can't help you earn them. You have to do that on your own by not being rude and by trying to be helpful (that means no whining, no begging, no trolling). Good luck.
I only participate on dA for a few core groups I am in. I sometimes do other things but it is all essentially...

NEW!As of this morning, 8/28, apparently my infant daughter is a target by the admins of Sailor Moon Crystal on Facebook.
Hello. Thank you for removing the other post. It was excessively inflammatory and did not help that there was an ex admin on there ridiculing artists for wanting credit and a current admin making threats to ban artists who continued to voice their concerns. Very alarming.
I'm messaging you because I run Global Art Community: Sailor Moon www.facebook.com/SailorMoonArt… (and www.sailormoonartistsunited.co…) and have linked my page to your admins before with the offer to help find unknown artists before the art has been published. We have never been taken up on the offer. We have also, a few times, pointed out easier and more respectful methods of sharing art that are still going unused. It's why I grabbed hold of that post so quickly and made it my mission to get artists voicing their concerns on it ASAP.
The offer still exists. We want your page to be successful and get beautiful art and talented artists out there. But our mission is to make sure that the art and artist go hand in hand. It isn't right for an artist to work so hard on their art and get nothing for it while all these pages get popular off of it. I hope you can understand that.
I was told someone would be contacting me and what I get is zip - I thoroughly understand that you all have lives outside of this page, but when you upset an entire community of artists, I think it would make the top of your list to contact the head asshat of the artist movement (ie me).
I have offered - over and over again - my page's support and help to your page on crediting and not a single time has the offer been taken up. We have offered multiple solutions the crediting issue to make it easier on you and the admins of this page. Still no change.
All we (the artists) are asking is that if you can't find the artist and there isn't a share button to use, either don't post it or link the image to Global Art Community: Sailor Moon (www.facebook.com/sailormoonart…) so we can find it for you BEFORE you post it.
Our #1 goal is for your page and pages like yours to be popular - the right way. This means the artists and artwork should go hand in hand. It is respect and a legality issue: techgnotic.deviantart.com/jour… - You need to invest an hour into watching the video linked there as an expert on copyright law talks about the legality of fanart (and yes, the fans who create it DO have rights to it).
It isn't right for an artist to work hard on a piece of work only to have it taken and attributed to them - yet make a page like this popular while the artist gets zero recognition for their work (and no, simply stating the work isn't yours or 'credit to the artist' doesn't give them credit - putting their name/identity out there does).
Please take a moment to think and then contact me. Please actually accept the help that is being (and has repeatedly been) offered to you. We aren't your enemy but will fight to the bitter end to see that we artists are given the respect we deserve.
