best of nonsensical gang beasts episodes 1-5 with nova (blue) & immortal (red)
I’m kinda annoyed I never carried on with Aikatsu bc it seems to be a p big thing now so I feel like I’m missing out on something really good but I just couldn’t stand the 3D models in the first episode and now it’s over 50 eps so there’s no way I’ll catch up ;n;
Even when you try to be nice to it, the world isn’t always merciful. It’ll eventually roll off you though! >0<
This was actually done back in the Spring and I forgot to post it (also it didn’t come out the way I wanted so I didn’t like it too much I guess) but it was kinda just to signify refreshing and new beginnings in the Spring time and stuff…I was feeling pretty transitional at that time I think.
i think this is my first time drawing rui, which is a crime really
Anime-alley has emailed me personally with an apology. They have also removed all their online stores. I didn’t really expect it to go this far, but in the end it was still their responsibility to ensure the legitimacy of the items at their store. Especially when purchasing items that are too cheap to be true, it probably is. I will consider it an apology accepted, so next time we see them around on the net I hope they’re selling legitimate merch.
It seems that they bought the items from TaoBao, a website known for really cheap imitation items, based in China.
Please, please support the artists directly when you can if they have their own store.
After a bit of digging, a really helpful twitter user managed to ask the Taobao store in question to remove the artwork they stole from me. Unfortunately I can see the rest of their store is full of stolen artwork used in charms but they never upload the actual artwork, so I could not find the original artists based simply from charms.
Please do NOT buy from them: If there’s any way you recognize the original artists from the artwork they’re selling they would remove it upon request;; But I can’t contact them myself (my mandarin it really bad, I don’t know how to talk to them even if I could)
Lastly just a huge thank you for everyone that helped contact storenvy and signal boosted the original post. I didn’t expect it to get so much attention on social media this quickly, but your support really helped me and the other artists. Thank you very much.
Anime-Alley storenvy has been brought to my attention in that they are selling my free! artwork off as charms WITHOUT my permission. This is really appalling, I have been forced to remove my illustration off all sites or edit a large watermark over it to protect my work since I simply cannot trust the community not to pull this sort of crap.
It’s common sense not to steal what does not belong to you. It is not the artists fault for wanting to share their work only to have them ripped off by people without a shred of decency. (Do not blame the shopkeeper for what the thief does).
After a bit of digging by my friend and I we found a lot of their items may also have been stolen from various artists and official artwork. PLEASE check if your artwork has also been stolen or if you can recognize the artists. I can absolutely attest that they stole my work and used without permission, and the fact that some of the items (particularly their free! Free! -Pic-Lil! - Pic-Lil! trading strap) are being sold at super cheap prices when they are very rare and expensive to obtain officially in Japan should alarm you.
Please do not support their thievery and profit of other people’s work and cheap imitation of official merchandize. Their products are also shoddy and poor in quality as seen in the photos.
If you can reblog this post, I would really appreciate this information being spread. Apparently they can be found at conventions and I’m just disappointed to know that they could be selling stolen artwork.
If you can email storenvy with a link to this post, or with any other information you have found to have their storefront taken down permanently that would be great. I do not want them to just simply take down my item and walk away with stealing other people’s work again, then nothing would be solved. Thank you so much.
