I bleed it out…
I’ve opened up these scars… 
I’ll make you face this…!

I’ve pulled myself so far…
I’ll make you face this now…!!

This started out as just some facial expression practice and it quickly turned into an all out photoset. I’m beyond happy with it though, I have a thing for blood so that’s always fun to color. Enjoy, you guys !

Anonymous: But dont you think ur a little too old for stuff like this like fandom and cosplay and dolls and characters like its okay when ur a kid not like u got anything better to do but when ur a adult shouldnt other stuff be more important by then???

pukind:

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA DEAR GOD, NO. 

I’m really sorry for anyone who thinks like that. Yes. ALL OF THE JOY MUST SUCK FROM YOUR LIFE the moment the clock strikes 12. The moment you turn 26. 

You do a reverse magical girl transformation.

Into SAILOR BORING JOYLESS ADULT.

Sadly, it’s true. See, I made a pact with the Evil Queen Nerdyl and she granted me the power of eternal enthusiasm and self assuredness for the interests that make me happy.  It’s almost like the power she granted me gave me the strength to enjoy what I enjoy without believing I’m not allowed to because I surpassed the age limit dictated to be “too old”.

Lol that doesn’t change that instead of sending them warnings to remove individual Homestuck items they went and slammed the hammer down on tons of storenvys and shut the whole stores down, they’re still treating their fans awfully.

Add this to literally every other incident of the Homestuck fandom being harassed for reasons related to AND NOT related to selling used cosplays (See: Harassment and slamming of bunnystuck group BY THE MAIN PR PEOPLE OF HOMESTUCK, harassment and slamming of people portraying Andrew Hussie as a character in cosplay, the list GOES ON) and you still reach the conclusion of the Homestuck fandom instead of being praised for acting as free PR to get other people to read it and expressing our love for the comic in the ways we best see fit we get treated like we’re the enemies, and pretty soon if we keep being treated like this we fucking will be. Cracking down the wolf cry of copyright ban hammer doesn’t save Homestuck or increase the WhatPumpkin profits, all it does is turn its previously loyal fanbase away from it because they’re being treated like shit, good job WhatPumpkin, good job Andrew Hussie, good job Homestuck.

Oh yes, hello, this happened to me today too!  I really wish someone on Whatpumpkin staff would actually read the relevant sections of copyright law one day, because this is an awful long time to be ignorant of what is ACTUALLY illegal here.  I could understand not allowing anyone to use the “Homestuck” name to advertise handmade items if you really want to be weirdly anal about it for some reason considering fandom works are essentially free advertising.  But copyright law in all but the rarest of circumstances does not extend to clothing.  Ever.  Unless you are printing stuff with copyrighted 2D Kids’ symbols or the word “Homestuck” on it, you are 100% legally allowed to sell your Homestuck cosplay.

http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ40.pdf

Continuing to call it copyright violation year after year and continuing to use their own fanbase to bully/anon harass people into shutting down is ignorance at best, scare tactics at worst.  It’s a really shitty way to treat the fanbase, full stop.

Pretty sure this is covered by the first-sale doctrine, anyway. Just puttin that out there.

Yeah so if anyone gives you heat… Keep this in mind, y’all.

I’m not sure “first sale doctrine” applies in most of these cases as the work in question has to be “lawfully sold or even transferred gratuitously” first.  Which in the case of hand-made cosplay doesn’t apply.  But cosplay sure as shit is protected from this sort of assrumpery under the “Useful Articles” exception.

From the Copyright Office itself:  
http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ40.pdf 
Right there on the 2nd page.  Clothing and fashion are not protected under copyright law.  I know they’ve read this.  Back during the whole Nepeta hat business, they were linking all sorts of parts of copyright law.  (Never mind they didn’t actually have a registered copyright until September 2013 (meaning before that they could protest violations, but could take no legal action - it has to be registered to do that)).  

Also, there’s this bit: “

Copyright in a work that portrays a useful article extends

only to the artistic expression of the author of the pictorial,

graphic, or sculptural work. It does not extend to the design

of the article that is portrayed. For example, a drawing or

photograph of an automobile or a dress design may be copy

righted, but that does not give the artist or photographer the

exclusive right to make automobiles or dresses of the same

design”

hey how about dont profit off someone else’s IP when they ask you to stop.

its disrespectful, even if whatever loophole makes it technically legal for some reason. (?) homestuck and whatpumpkin are independently run by a few very hardworking people, not a huge corporation. theyre trying to protect their livlihood.

dont be a dick, respect the creators wishes, and realize that you are not entitled to make money off it??

people are making their own things they should be allowed to profit off of their own art???

its not their own art, its taking someone else’s designs and producing it?

theres plenty of other fandoms whose creators dont care that you can profit off of, i sell fanart merch too! i know how profitable it can be. but i DONT sell homestuck stuff outside of 2D commissions and my official products on the WP store because we were asked not to and its downright disrespectful to just ignore that.

I don’t even like Homestuck so I don’t really care but if you consider the fact that value is created by labor, and the fact that artists put a lot more into their fan works than just the original concept, it is their own art. Plus I’m pretty sure the Homestuck people have used a lot of fan art in the official stuff - and I’m under the impression that they aren’t paying a ton of royalties, if any - so it’s hypocritical for them to make that decree.

Basically it’s only disrespectful if you hold a certain definition of ownership to be true.

ive worked for homestuck as an artist since 2012 and i got paid for the use of my artwork every time so ur example is invalid.

the point stands that if the creator of a thing asks you not to sell stuff based on his IP and you still do, ur a dick. it doesnt matter what ur personal philosophy is about ownership, they said in clear terms they dont want people selling HS merch and if people do it anyways and face social/financial consequences that is their own fault.

like sorry i know its a weird grey area with most fandoms but andrew and WP have made their terms quite clear

You know, if that’s the case then perhaps that’s the tactic that Hussie and WP should take when contacting cosplayers selling off their old costumes.  There is a very big difference between asking that fans please not sell costumes as a personal request, vs fear mongering and spreading misinformation throughout the fandom by claiming that they are in violation of copyright and taking part in illegal activities (see: Nepeta Hat Saga).  Showing a little bit of respect to the fans would go a long way, and and maybe - just maybe! - the fanbase would want to return the favor by upholding those requests.

applecherry108: I thought Gamzee and Karkat had been long standing moirails up until shit started going down on the meteor? Karkat even had Gamzee-purple stuff in his hive to signify their relationship.

hhhhammy:

I always got the impression that their moiraillegiance was a thing that happened in that moment when the shooshpap scene went down.  No one else knew it was coming—like, all of the people standing nearby are asking “wait, should I auspisticize?” “are you gonna kill him?” “are you pitch/flush?” and Karkat’s just like no no guys stand back I got this.

I mean, Hussie coulda been hinting that they’d have a relationship in the future of the comic, but, like, Eridan’s computer is brown, Tavros’s is teal, Sollux’s recuperacoon is olive, etc.  So, yeah.  Just the impression I got an my reasons for thinking that.

tbh i totally thought sollux<>karkat was a thing pretty much up until that flash

Oh man I’m not trying to counter anything here you just made me think of something—recently I’ve started to think that they were actually playing pitch chicken throughout their whole first conversation?  Like I’m kind of meh on SolKat but the whole “I hate you more than you hate yourself and me combined” thing, and then “Are we not still friends because of the things I said”…?

pitch chicken.

Also see the panel after Karkat’s computer explodes where Sollux can’t figure out why he did it:

Why did you send Karkat that code? It was such a bad idea. You suppose it was a boastful gesture to get a friend to think more highly of you. But why would flaunting your superior skills accomplish this? It was foolish. 

Reeks of rivalry.
