This is a casual fanart blog. I'm also Aquanut on dA and Pixiv. I draw a lot of videogame and Neopets fanart and occasionally various other things as I feel like it. (Requests/commissions are closed.) Be warned that I have a tendency to jump back and forth between fandoms.

Please do not use any of these images without my permission.

that’s just how children play with toys, I’m afraid

nebellym said: I think the fact that you bother to analyze and critique everything that is drawn for you is really lovely!

Ah, thank you for this nice message, I’m really glad you enjoy it! I sometimes think it’s annoying when I talk for a long time about art haha, but I really enjoy looking at artwork carefully and trying to pay attention to the details; I wish I had time to leave long comments on all the pictures I see because I think it’s really rewarding for artists to be able to see the reactions to their work and know that people notice and appreciate everything they put into it. It’s the least I can do as thanks if someone takes the time out of their lives to draw something for me; I’m really honored and thankful to everyone who has!

harblkun: Something with….Libra? And Maribelle? or…. perhaps something with Ulki?

Oh shoot! I just realized I misread this entirely and just did Maribelle on her own!

agsafd my first thought seeing this on my dash was that harby was getting back at me by requesting this THIS IS SO PERFECT SHE’S EVEN A WAR CLERIC AAAAA THANK YOU FOR DRAWING THIS she’s magnificentI really like all the smooth curving lines tilting back and forth in an unbalancing way that ultimately does balance itself out; the action has such a dynamic yet relaxed feel, I love how she’s so casually whacking the enemy with that axe and you feel the weight of it sinking into the body but also how she isn’t really exerting herself that much to do it. The perspective on her arm really adds to the dynamism of the motion and I love how you get a sense of volume in the shapes just from the outlines and flat colors! Her expression’s perfect; I love how nonchalantly she’s sipping her tea and how the tilt of the tea and elongation of her face and her flying curls all add to the feeling of motion. I always enjoy seeing how people stylize Maribelle’s curls, and the flat ribbon shapes here look like they’re light enough to swing around freely, making the cartoon action more believable! I love the casual way she’s leaning forward to hit the enemy and they’re reeling back away from her; the curve of her skirt and the axe line up to create a bit of an s-curve that keeps drawing the eye back and forth between the two characters. The small dark patches of shading on the curls and hoop skirt add a subtle depth to the flat colors, and the sweeping folds in the cloth add even more to the motion; I also like how the background splotches make me think of teastains as well as the more obvious interpretation, haha. This picture has such a bright bold dynamic look, I love it!!

My baby(English) by PvElephant

This actually made me cry a little

It got so out of hand that someone had to make a comic to express what they’ve been trying to express in words countless of times. Please don’t do such things to works before receiving the author’s permission.

Please.

Do not edit, trace, copy, crop, or otherwise modify and repost artists’ work without their permission.

And don’t tell them how to feel about their work. They are the ones who have spent countless hours of their lives creating things for their own reasons, and they have the right to feel any way they please about how their work is treated.  Not all artists’ feelings are the same, but all artists’ feelings should be respected.

It’s not the artist’s job to “suck up” and “get over” people’s thievery and vandalism. Don’t blame the artist for some viewers’ bad behavior.

Anonymous said: Geez, someone asks to use your art as an Icon and you give them a page long explanation? A bit Important aren't we?

The ask gave me an opportunity to state something that I had wanted to say for a long time, so I did. I am sorry to riccardodirigo for the long explanation that wasn’t directed at them, but if I had published the ask without clarifying, I would have felt it was unfair to people who had asked me the same question and been turned down in the past.

I don’t think there’s anything self-aggrandizing about clarifying one’s wishes about how one wants their own work to be used. The attitude that once something is published to the internet, it’s free for anyone to take and use however they want, is frankly just plain rude and disheartening to a lot of creators. It’s the kind of thing that makes a person not want to post work anymore because strangers are going to feel entitled to take it and do whatever they want with it, and there are plenty of artists who have taken down their work because of this problem. I don’t expect better of the internet, but I do appreciate the fact that it’s not always like that.

Moreover, it’s just my nature to respond to everything with essays. You can ask me what I had for lunch and I’ll give you a whole rant about food allergies. Call it an annoying character trait. Personally I’d describe myself as long-winded rather than important, but if you say so!
