- Professional Animator & Fartist -

I received my first round of stickers that I ordered in the mail, the first batch are 1 1/2 inch paper stickers from Vistaprint.com. I paid a dollar extra for glossy sticker stock.

Overall, they’re okay. They look and feel like a professional sticker, except for the weird patchy gloss over them. But for the price, 20 cents a sticker, they’re not bad at all.

The color is nice, the image is clear, and the overall ordering experience was smooth. The turnaround was less than 10 days, the price of shipping was reasonable (7.99$), so I can’t complain.

3.5/5 for Quality
5/5 for ease of ordering

Shoutout to Tony Mitchell for putting this project together! It was a great experience and a lot of talented people contributed some really cool animation for the Anijam that was showcased at Nocturne Halifax this year.

I had a sudden childhood flashback this evening….When I was 12 or 13, my idea for a really cool original cartoon character was a dead frog. I drew it in the exact same position as the drawing above, blood and all, over and over again. I drew the frog in my binders, on my notes, in my sketchbooks. I even made a clay sculpture of it in class. I thought it was cute and funny, but my teachers didn’t share my sense of humor.

I haven’t drawn for fun in a while, so of course I had to draw the most stereotypical Sailor Moon pose out there. I might tighten up the line work on the drawing and color it more later.

So i’m having a bit of a conundrum….

At what point is art theft considered art theft?

Sure, its obvious when someone steals a piece of artwork online and claims it as their own, but what about sourcing?

Someone made a post on Reddit earlier in r/DigitalPainting/ showcasing their Tifa Lockheart artwork, but it showed an uncanny resemblance to a well known Olivia Wilde photograph that has been circling the net for years.

According to the artist on her Deviantart page, “this is a painting mostly done without photo reference.”

Although I take no issue with references or photo manipulation, please source your material. I can’t be the only one feeling a little mad about this type of thing, right? Or am I over exaggerating?
