|Beauty in Purest Form|
Hello dearies, Bizarre Monkey here! It appears I made a miscalculation or two, so I'll be putting most of my decent art back up, this will no longer serve the purpose of an Archivium of my progress, but as a portfolio, then as a progress tracker going forward.
It may take a while before I have everything up as is desired, so feel free to check out my Drawcrowd if you wanna jump right in.
So why am I back? Well, outside of learning that the deviantART terms of licensing scare were more on hot topic's end than DA's, and as a result I'm not worried because Hot topic won't sell what won't sell, ergo, everything I make is my intellectual property, not fan art, so I'm not worried, worst comes to worst, they get me a bit of publicity and I prove the characters are mine and slam their asses in court.
They aren't that stupid though, the design they took was fan art, which is a lot harder to prove you were the creator of, I've been backing up all my data for over a decade, if someone tried to place a legal hold on and tried to steal my work they'd be sued out of all their worth so fast it'd make their silly reckless heads spin.
I've improved many fold since I was here last, too.
The main reason for my return is google notoriety, an admittedly only just noticed side effect, google is recognizing less of my characters via searches, and I always like it when I can be recognized for the man who has the RED CAT and CLOUD NYMPH tags on god damn lockdown, so that is ultimately my real motivator, but also some people don't approve of going to drawcrowd for whatever reasons, and that's perfectly fine!
My tumblr? Well the art is still on their but I left. It's even more underwhelming than I thought it would be, and my standards for it were already absurdly low.
