I’ve just discovered I’ve been holding my pen all wrong for literally, like, years I guess, no wonder my ring finger hurts so bad when I draw for a long time
So as of next month I’m going to have to start paying for a lot expenses myself that my mother was previously paying for amounting to £50 per month, I currently don’t have a job and while I do have some work upcoming, I don’t yet know how much or when I’m going to get paid for it
So if you could take a look at my Redbubble store and maybe consider buying something that would be fantastic, or if not, signal boosting this would be much appreciated. I’d rather not end up in any sort of debt to my mom. Thanks
Someone requested a hand tutorial, so I rambled. I didn’t even get to everything I would like to, so here is a part!
i just wanted to clarify some things
artists know the risk they are taking when they post their art online. people are inevitably going to take it apart, color edit it, flip it around or otherwise post it uncredited.
saying that an artist shouldn’t post their work if they don’t want it bastardized is probably the stupidest stance on this subject you could take. if all artists followed this line of reasoning, there would be no art on the internet.
when an artist posts their work, they are trusting you to enjoy it respectfully. and when you betray that trust either knowingly or unknowingly, it’s like saying the artist’s time, skills and thoughts aren’t worth anything.
you are NOT entitled to an artists work just because they decided to trust you enough to share it with you.
an artist is within their right to feel upset that someone has used their work in a way they never intended it to be used. they are within their right to ask for it to stop and not happen again.
just because it’s “bound to happen” doesn’t mean it’s any less deplorable.
