Here are the two Teo I managed to snag from the pot, and the CUTEST PIGEON SCC? I bought from Ryou~!

DC’d the first Teo to the above image (original had uncolored lines). Does anyone know who the artist is for the second Teo’s lines? I’d love to grab the PSD!

OQM?

-sobs- I had a que for that second one yesterday. Congrats on getting it though lmfao. It’s pretty

ugh man I know the feeling! @_@ I think I went through three rejected/already claimed designs before I was able to get that one finally? xD But lemme know if you ever want to (P)MBC with it! I may make one color change to the start it’s holding (same pink as its nose probs or a copper/bronze), but that’s it. :]

where do you submit accounts for banning? my new lairmate has moved in, and i think her old account has to be deleted.

Here you go~

As a head’s up, since I noticed you posted from your own account, you gotta post the ban request from the account that needs to be banned. :]

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.

I’d like add something that’s rarely ever discussed, but happens frequently enough to cause concern…

There are several online subcultures that support people creating original characters or personas. Artists and commissioners use these characters as visual representations and extensions of themselves, or even mascots for their brand. As a result, people will recognize and identify community members based on what their characters look like rather than what the people behind them look like IRL. This sometimes poses a danger to people’s reputations and livelihood whenever a stranger decides to use someone else’s character/identity or intellectual property without consent. I use to think nothing of it when someone stole my art and claimed it as theirs. I use to find it flattering whenever someone would think one of my characters was pretty enough to use for RP. That all came to a screeching halt when several things happened over the years I’ve posted my art online.

Case 1: People had threatened to harm me if they ever ran into me in person. This was due to an unsavory, highly homophobic individual who was causing a lot of issues on a role playing forum. They weren’t using my name, but they were using a small 100x100 pixel image of my personal character as their forum avatar. That was enough for people to assume it was me all along.

Case 2: I’ve had people nearly post my name on a well-known artist defamation blog because someone had stolen my artwork, pretended to be me, and had cheated several people out of a considerable amount of money. My reputation as an artist was nearly ruined by someone who tricked innocent people into thinking they were doing business with the real me.

Case 3: There was a girl who quickly became infamous for taking part in numerous hotel orgies at conventions. She was using multiple con badges that had art of my character/persona on them. If it weren’t for my roommates vouching for me and proving this girl was not me, my relationship with my friends and family would’ve been obliterated. All because a very promiscuous girl decided to use my character.

Case 4: The worst incident happened several years ago at the very first convention I’d ever attended. I was gleefully approached by a young man I didn’t recognize, but he definitely recognized me from my character on my badges. After a moment of confusion and discussion, we both realized he’d been duped into believing he and I had been forming a year-long intimate relationship online through an adult role playing site. Not only did an impersonator tell this guy they wanted to meet at the convention, but during their time getting to know one another, they also told him they were very much into realistic rape role play. Had this poor guy been taller, stronger, or more aggressive in nature, I could have been dragged off to a hotel room and raped under the impression that I liked it. The more that unfolded, the more terrified I became. That moment was when I completely stopped thinking character and art theft was a purely innocent thing. It can easily escalate into something insidious if the wrong person decides to take advantage of it.

Despite all the experiences I’ve had, there are still numerous people who believe I’m overreacting, unprofessional, or being immature when I speak out against art and character theft. These things really can matter in the long run, and I’m not the only artist who’s had issues with identity theft linked directly with art theft.

Thank you for being awesome, OP. <3

Re-blogging for the most excellent reply.  This stuff isn’t harmless.

I’ve mostly (to my knowledge) dodged the larger bullets but have had my share of being impersonated and dragged through enough RP site drama by people using my characters & creatures to know how miserable this shit is.

Any adventure expert out there?

I am using a Vyne to adventure and has no luck yet in finding any Wild Teo Egg at all.

Is there anything else I should know beside my friend suggestion of equipping broken mirror + lighter?

Or should I change the genus of pet?

Advice?

Edit : Now friend say equipe clover stone + money lighter.

But I am now seeing alot of “No events to report.”

"No events to report" is a good sign, means your items are working. I would not suggest a Broken Mirror because that will attract MORE pets to you, which is what you don’t want. You want to minimize pet encounters and Merchant encounters. Clover Stone is the right item to use, because it will only attract higher level pets, which are rarer anyway (so there is less of a chance to see them and more chance for random events). You want the "Gathering" events, which is where people have the most luck with picking up the eggs. That means the digging, diving, climbing, etc. events. I don’t know what a Vyne’s skills are, but there’s a thread someplace that has them all listed for the genuses… There are only a few which don’t have a Gathering event/skill, but none are more common or easier than the others, so it doesn’t matter as long as your pet isn’t one of the genuses that don’t have one at all (Vynes are okay though).

why is it blurry wtf

actually can somebody answer me as to why it would be blurry after downsizing from 400??

it looks fine at 400 tho and im throwing it in crystal check right this second and then putting it in my shark shop at 5gp if anyone would like a use. premades will be forthcoming, at x+3gp, where x is the price of the psd use.

If you resize things, you always gotta replace the lineart, at the very least, with a fresh set. XD Just copy+paste, delete the blurry set. I also like to replace the other default layers (base, shading, highlighting) because it makes for a crisper image in general.

Soooo the fursona generator is a beautiful thing, and I want to draw a bunch of these, but especially: 

  • lilac reindeer. it runs a jimmy carter fanblog. it lives alone in a dense forgotten wilderness.
  • cream and pink whale. it has an unknowable amoutn of eyes. it shivers even when it’s not cold.
  • zombie cardinal. it floats about a foot off the ground. it speaks a forgotten and ancient language both disturbing and enchanting to mortal ears.

My new warm-up sketch material.

vampire seal. it consumes only blood. its back is covered in candles which flicker ominously.
