So I noticed a lot of fan art being sold on the site I want to use for my art shop and got swept up in some good u'l confirmation bias. If these people can sell fan art, I sure as hell can, right? Not really. I decided to upload my Disney Princesses thinking I'll be safe since some of the top selling t-shirts on that site include derivative fan art, besides, my work is "tranformative" right? Wrong again. Just because Disney princesses don't exist in Star Wars, it doesn't mean it's transformative. Nothing is being added. At the end of the day the Disney princesses are copyrighted, along with Jedi from Star Wars. Cross over artwork is just derivative fanart, which can't be sold legally without permission. Thus my Jedi princesses got taken down. Not to mention my Pokemon fanart is most definitely just derivative. 

So why do people get away with selling fan art on that site? Apparently users are the ones that point out the bad eggs, rather than the site hunting down copy right infringing content. It's almost as if you're deemed worthy by the community if your shirts will stay put, or at least, for some amount of time. 

From an ethical standpoint, I really shouldn't of tried even considering selling my fan art. 

However, I will be posting my original art work there on prints and various items, such as clothing, mugs, prints, etc. I will be working on a bunch of cool new stuff for you guys! Stay tuned!

I decided to redo my "Punk Witch" illustration, too many things bothered me about it.

Mental Omega - Yunru
Here's some more Mental Omega fan art! This character is the Chinese Faction's hero unit, Yunru. mentalomega.com/index.php?page…

"Yunru's most well-known invention is the 'Earth Breaker'. A one-of-a-kind, massive drill which, when driven into the ground, can reduce surrounding structures to rubble within seconds. Due to the sheer weight of the weapon, Yunru created a mobile exo-suit so that she could wield the drill with ease.


The exo-suit is equipped with a rather curious wrist device as well; when a vehicle is targeted with the device, the vehicle's onboard computers would become flooded with useless, cluttered data, much like a DDOS attack. Victims of the device then become a vulnerable target to Chinese forces as their movement and firing systems are overwhelmed from the sheer overflow of data."

Happy Birthday You are an exceptionally creative person. Once you learn to focus that energy into one or a few creative passions, you can go far. Disciplining yourself is not necessarily a problem–you tend to have so many ideas and talents that it can be hard to develop just one. Indecision is sometimes an issue. You are very likeable, and others sense your warmth, or at the very least, they seem to know you have a lot to share.Famous people born today: Faith Hill, H. G.
