Only seen a dozen parrots so far this week. The pair of wedgetails must have been scaring them off. Lots of kookaburras though, kookabrras are bold as f***
A wombat is after my fruit buns
Shadow (Prototype) Mevile Progress!
Mevile is one of my favourite OCs design wise for sure. He’s simple, colourful, and oh so fun to draw (and apparently sew!) with the mass amount of wiggle factor he has.
I am so pleased with how the prototyping has come out on this guy and figured it was time to share my amusement and progress with all you.
Lots of bits just tacked on with pins for a rough idea of what the final product will look like but even with the mass amount of pins I am so ecstatic with my progress. I can’t wait to start the real version and see some much needed colour.
Im going to steal him from you, i just need to find a garden plot away from shiny or edible things….
Whenever there is an oil spill in the world’s oceans, a sea slick is “born”. Countless animals lose their lives to the thick, clinging clutches of oil, dying miserable, wretchedly drawn-out deaths. Sea slicks are born of the lost souls of those animals and the sludge that bound and choked the life from them. As such, sea slicks are always referred to as “they” and “them” rather than “it”, and it’s said that if you chance upon a sea slick near the surface, their soft, melancholy vocalisations carry the haunting remnants of sea birds and the whispers of shoals of fish.
Despite their fearsome appearances, they are very much docile creatures, preferring to near-constantly swim through the depths and the quiet of the sea they were robbed from. Sea slicks are amortal, being unable to die, as they were never truly what we would call “alive” to begin with. Over time, however, sea slicks do disintegrate, usually over the span of several years, losing pieces of semi-sentient oil to the surface waters.
Ambitious wixes track sea slicks to gather these pieces, as they make especially valuable, durable invisibility cloaks capable of protecting wearers from even the deadliest of spells.
I really don’t mean this as a personal attack, but as a general commentary, because I have a serious issue with appropriation.
Not only is this fan work of one of crispy magnificent creatures, but I originally posted this with its own story of a dream I had that inspired the work. So you’ve vetoed two artists and their original visions when you claimed this image as your own.
I’m all for being inspired by the works of others, but the manner in which one does so, and gives proper dues to the scorce is critical. This story would have been lovely on its own, citing the image as the tales inspiration would have been flattering, but in this context, presented in this manner it is flat out appropriation.
Please respect the difference. Taking images and changing the original context and adding it to your own work is not only lying, its harmful lying. It directly detracts of its value to its creators by watering down and obscuring the meaning of the original, and takes attention away from the original creator, which for a professional artist, (who even when a respected industry professional typically has a low to non existent public profile) can literally take food of their table.
Crispy does not deserve that. This was a gift for her, and it hurts me deeply that someone would devalue her creative property inadvertently through one of my gifts to her. Please, please, by all means reference, be inspired by, tribute and build upon the works of others, but don’t appropriate work for your own art.
However well meaning, its still theft, and its not harmless.
From my own c0da.
This game is very precious to me.
It brings me joy to see it inspiring stories in others as much as it did for me. Also it brings me joy to see Kirkbride do…. Kirkbridey things, magnificently. He was a pillar of influence on my personal aesthetic, so working on this was very empowering.
And, cause a bots still got to make a living: you can buy a print here. buy one and help me fund my goal of buying this for my own wall ^.^
Interesting news for followers of the indie industry. Seems a large group of indie devs proved to be far to real for reality TV.
There’s hope for the species yet.
Cor asked me what Jeager uses to get around din MRC most days. If its not his bike its his half rusted pick up. lol.
Also 8D i drew a Lynn in Headworld clothing (aka the one Jeager’s in that im sorta calling Modern midgard for now)
XD part of a trade coz CD did awesome Chimera armour.
Lyn looks hella fabulous, but I’m not sure you should have put her in the same post at the bike, Jeager might not get it back.
