Just a guy who loves drawing =3

I specialize in Pokémorphs, and aim to bring happiness to the people with my drawings and stories. I feel like that's my purpose in life.
Another goal is to inspire people to pave their own road instead of accepting other people's opinions as fact. There's no "right way" to do art. Just follow your heart~

For those who don't feel confident in their skill, know I never had an education in art in any form. Schooling isn't important unless you aim to make it your living (and even then I think a degree says nothing about an artist). Just do what you like! Having fun is the number 1 priority! In fact, I tossed out all of the conventions in art and just did what I was comfortable with. I always just figured everything out on my own.

And don't let anyone EVER make you stop doing what you love. If they feel the need to downplay anyone, then they know absolutely nothing about art. Skills means nothing. It's the passion, the heart and soul behind it that really counts!

FAQ:

Q: Do you do requests/commissions/art trades/gift art/etc.?
A: Sorry, I don't. Had very bad experiences with requests, and commissions just feels wrong to me.

Q: Do you RP?
A: I don't. Neither SFW nor NSFW. Though for NSFW, I only do it in a relationship.

Q: Can I draw/use one of your characters?
A: No, sorry.

Q: Can you add me in an IM?
A: I'd like to know people better via PMs first before I add them.

Q: What gender are you?
A: Male. You can come to my art streams when I draw traditionally if you don't believe me.

Q: Where do you live?
A: Yes.

Q: Yes? YES TOWN? I've never heard of a place like that.
A: That's not a question. ( Okay, I totally made this specific question up =P )

Art13 passed this round, but the war continues!

on 15 September 2018 at 22:18:41 MDT

Hey there, fellow furry friends,

Well, I did promise to report back to you on the subject of Art13, and I think that at this point, it doesn't need an introduction anymore.

This time, not so good news. It passed this voting round (along with Art11, the "link tax"), with 438 voting in favor, 226 voting against and 39 abstaining, but it won't be the last battle!

First of all, the amendments weren't very satisfying, to say the least. It includes changing "a lot of content" to "a significant amount of content," which just means the exact same thing, complete with the same vague meaning that could still be exploited through different interpretations.
They also avoided specifically mentioning a content filter, even though that's still the only option we have.
But not only that, but the good proposals have been rejected, like freedom of panorama and the filming of sports events.

But there were SOME good things, as small enterprises, non-profit encyclopedias (e.g. Wikipedia), cloud services for individual users, online marketplaces and open source software development platforms (e.g. GitHub) are exempt from further copyright controls in the new draft,
And it does seem that sharing hyperlinks are exempt from Art11, as well.
It COULD mean good things for fanart in the future, but it's better not to let our guard down just yet.

So, what's going to happen next?
Well, first of, trilogue negotiations will occur, informal negations with the representatives of the EU Member States (Council) and the European Commission (EC), which will happen behind closed doors. Things are still subject to change here, so don't lose hope!

After that, there will be one final vote, likely in January 2019.

If it passes there, the new law would need to be interpreted and implemented by EU member states.

But to not end it on such a sour note, it does seem that slowly, more and more people are becoming aware, and seem to be fighting back with memes, so hopefully that backlash will have influence.

In the mean time, please keep raising awareness.

I also suggest to keep an eye on this site: https://saveyourinternet.eu/
While its tools to contact MEPs are currently disabled, they'll likely be activated again when the time comes, so please make sure to do so when it's possible.
At first I waited a little before writing a Journal on the subject until the tools were accessible, so that's why I'm a little late.

If we stand united and speak up, we can achieve great things together!

I'll likely report back when some news about Art13 pops up again.

Thank you for reading and your help/support!
