Delusions of grandeur
Is there anything to help you to take care of the art theft?

It didn’t happen to me, at least not that I’m aware of, but to a friend of mine, krattsgonewild.  Every now and then someone in the fandom- I’m not naming who, but those curious can poke it out for themselves pretty well -posts pictures of hers that they edited over onto the tag.  Multiple attempts to get them to stop have been taken in the past, including getting Tumblr itself to take down the pics, but it keeps happening.  And they don’t have an askbox, so sending them a message is out of the question.

Since Tumblr only accepts art theft claims by the person who drew the pics in the first place, there isn’t much worth in reporting it to Tumblr yourself. However, bringing it to the attention of the artist is ALWAYS welcome. And if anyone out there knows this person and follows them, thus giving them the Fanmail option, then please ask them to stop doing this.  It’s rude, it’s disrespectful, and it’s art theft.  As for the pictures themselves, don’t Like them, don’t Reblog them, don’t do anything to them but let the original artist know they’re up.  This goes for anything you see around, not just what went up in the fandom.

Just to clear up some minor confusion from this post:

Prints of my photography are now available at this direct link to my gallery here on deviantART.

Sorry about that.

But seriously…

I have lots of super cool photos ranging from still life and architecture to plants, animals and geological spectacles, including a few B&W film shots that I hand-processed/developed myself. 

Please, think of the children and take a look! If you don’t do it for me, at least do it for this goat. Because he loves you. And it would make him severely happy.

Also, signal boosts are very much appreciated. <3

Reblogging the follow-up post, for anyone else who finds deviantART’s site layout completely incomprehensible (please tell me I’m not the only one!) and/or would simply like an easy way to view all this awesomeness. 

And also for the goat.  XD

Excuse my horrible handwriting.

Excuse my horrible handwriting.

Commission 1 of 2 for empress-penguin, who for this one wanted a scene from this RP (wherein on an already chilly adventure to the misty forests of Madagascar, Martin sacrifices his pullover for his cold little brother).  Specifically this is from the end of the thread where we last left it, when they&#8217;re doing a little friendly snarking back and forth while sitting at their campfire.
&#8230;That&#8217;s supposed to be the shadows of a forest behind them.  I kinda threw it in last minute, but overall I&#8217;m proud of how this thing came out.  And the commissioner loved it too, so it&#8217;s all good X3

Is it possible to pay on DA with points?

No.  If it was an option I would have listed it, but all commission tender needs to be actual money, as it’s going toward food and other necessities.

What if I just kept posting art, didn&#8217;t even reblog stuff anymore, just made this my art blog now
This is a finalization of what MerChris looks like for my RP version of the AU, especially after deciding what his &#8220;species&#8221; is (fairy lyretail cichlid), barring a hundred anatomy errors on the human half.  This is basically the fault of a cross-canon meme thread between Chris from one AU and Fluttershy from another, which is right here and ABSOLUTELY adorable.  Hence the little doodle to the right; once you read the thread, you&#8217;ll know X3
This was basically just a color test, I&#8217;ll be putting more detail into it later.

I thought I’d put together a slicker commission post than ones prior.  Everything’s pretty much laid out as clear as I can make it, but if you have any questions then let me know!  

Around Tumblr I can also be contacted through my ask/fanmail about commission requests.  All prices are in $USD and will be completed through Paypal.

Even if you’re not interested in a commission, I always appreciate a signal boost!

Can you tell I draw Chris a lot

Pretty soon with any luck, yeah.  Since school just started back for a lot of people, I don’t want to do anything anytime soon, in interest of not adding to what might be a hectic time for some people.  But after stuff smooths out, I’d love to do something.

So right now, I’m thinking early-mid September?  As always, watch this space.

I think I’m going to take a break from 95% of the internet.

Definitely going on Tumblr hiatus though. I’ll still respond to asks, still update certain things, but overall I’m stepping away.

If you need me, there’s Skype and AIM, or if you have a Plurk I’m also there.

See you on the creature trail.

Don’t worry, I’m fine…

Another thing I animated that was turned into a Gif*u*

Aahh, finding out you animated it makes it so much BETTER. X3   This is one of my favorite scenes (in my favorite of the Swamp Week episodes).  His cough.  And the hilarity.

Fiction: Instinct

empress-penguin:

Title: Instinct

Rating: PG/K+, I guess, for some darker villainy and action (nothing graphic).

Fandom: Wild Kratts

Summary: Fed up with the Kratt brothers’ interference, Gourmand decides to exploit a newly-discovered weakness of the Creature Power Suits.  Alternate version of “Opossum in My Pocket.”

Notes:  Watching the episode will provide a bit of context for a few things that are mentioned, but it shouldn’t be necessary to understanding the story.  Many thanks to deepfathom for her invaluable help and support!

Baby fell out of the tree. She couldn’t fly very well in the wind, so I picked her up and put her back in her nest :)

Hoorah! PUT BABY BIRDS BACK IN THE NEST GUYS and if you can’t reach the nest but you can see it and the parents are hanging around, you can make a little makeshift nest. THE PARENTS WILL STILL CARE FOR IT the idea that they’ll smell you and reject it is a myth started by people who didn’t want their kids handling wild animals.

Just a quick reiteration of a spring/summertime psa.

That myth is all the more ridiculous once you realize that birds have terrible senses of smell

I’m so happy that someone other than me knows the whole smell and mother birds thing is fake, you guys, think about how many people believe in that myth and have let baby birds die…
