Je n’aurai pas tous mes posters exposés, mais si vous voulez un design ici, dites-moi!
Was thinking of shipping names and it led to this doodle
all of their names start with Y, that’s 3 Y’s, arrange them and they look like a cube on a 3D coordinate system, xyz planes, xyz summons…
Human Gali Nuva. It took 2 years for me to finish this. ;D
When I heard the news, I just had to do something for it! even though people don’t really know me for Digmon, Digimon was where I drew most of my inspiration from, and I love the story and characters so much.
(A print will be available for Otakuthon, and it’s also up for pre-order here.)
a little animation for a client. :)
haha thanks!! I still love bionicle…yiii the love goes on strong.
for a relatively small fandom, we’ve got a LOT of fantastic artists actually. here’re some people worth checkin’ out.
I haven’t been involved in the tumblr tag or bzp for a bit so I’m missing a lot of cool peeps for sure!

”#someone draw this”
so I did
Sorry for the inactivity! I’ve been working on a lot of art projects that I wanna keep under wraps for now and also I’ve been looking for a full time job!
I just got a part time position at an arts & crafts store today (art supply discounts owo) and I’m gonna be busy with that until I find a ft position in my field. I think it’d be a good opportunity to work on my communication skills as well. =w=
I was drawing bionicles while watching yowapeda cause of you know…the news that has been happening lately which has gotten everyone’s hopes up.
Here’s a Lewa doing a backflip but it really looks like he got uppercut instead.
As many of you are well aware, WeLoveFine is a shirt company that boosts “T-Shirts designed by fans for fans” motto. Their slogan and idea is simple enough, hire fans/artists to work with their acquired licenses and selling those shirts to said fans/artists.
They hold design contests that allow them to gain a better idea of what will sell and in turn lead artists on with the promise that they may potentially be hire by WLF under their MightyFineArtist program - a program that would allow artists to submit their work whenever and to gain commission from their art rather than one fixed flat rate.
The MFA is invite only but WLF insists that if an artist holds enough contest wins under their belt that they may be admitted into the program. They claim that they treat their artists fairly however, this ultimately isn’t how it goes down over at WLF.
More under the cut:
For a while now I’ve been pretty agitated with WLF. Back when I entered the MLP contest probably 3 years ago, I got an email saying my entry was in the top ones (it’s still there) but I needed to sign a release form saying they could use it for whatever they wanted… before even letting me know how far I qualified.
As it turned out, I won… a 50 dollar gift certificate. That was not even enough to cover 2 shirts with shipping.
My previous experiences with shirts have been with threadless, where I collaborated with my friend Alice. I can’t even remember how much money we initially got for it (I think it was 500 each?), but every time our shirts are reprinted we each get 250. Also, they give store credit for making winning designs.
Not only does WLF not do that (the store credit thing), they don’t pay artists fairly for reprinting. How much money has my shirt made them? At the cost of… however much 2 shirts from them cost to print? They didn’t even pay to ship it. So they’ve literally made hundreds/thousands from my fucking shirt and I got… 50 dollar gift certificate. That’s it.
So take that into account for their many designs, and consider the very little the artists got in return.
It was pretty stupid of me to sign without finding out what I was going to receive in exchange, and so that’s a lesson learned, here. Please take from my lesson and shun these extremely shady “business” practices which treat fanart as not “Real” art deserving fair pay, despite the huge amount of money to be made from it.
I’m glad to see an actual post about the shit they’re pulling though, because I felt like my anecdote alone wasn’t really enough to make a post about.
TLDR fuck WLF for paying dismally and not giving a shit about the artists themselves or fair compensation.
Time to add from my own WLF experiences.
I first messaged WLF a couple years ago to have a contest entry where someone stole my MLP art removed. They really liked my art and ended up asking if I wanted to do some designs for them. I did a couple flat rate designs for about $200. They really liked it, it did well, and they said I could have my own artist area. I agreed however they never got back to me about it. I sent another email asking about it which was also ignored. They asked me if I could do designs from other series (not MLP), and yet they wouldn’t put me on the artist team.
On one particular commission, I was asked to do a design for ElfQuest, so I did a design of Winnowill. (The sketch was sent to WLF and approved) However, once I finished the piece, it was sent to the Elfquest folks and they didn’t like it and refused to have it sold. I was asked if I could lower the original quote I gave since they couldn’t sell it. It was a blow since I had put so much time into it and I only charged $150 anyway. :/
Overall, WLF paid me for my art, but it was super frustrating working with them. Given how popular my shirts were (I’ve seen so many people wear my Luna and We Heart Ponies designs) I couldn’t get on to the team even though they initially said they wanted me on, plus they kept pushing me from series and series. It was really hard to work on stuff for one series as I sent in sketches and never got a reply on whether my stuff was approved, or they would tell me to hold off designs because they changed their mind and didn’t think it’d sell well.
