There's many out there but I feel like it's important to bring this one to everyone's attention. 

Please block themalright as you may know, there is this person going around spamming people and asking for free art, that is this user :iconeyesofthepowerful: <---- this account has been deleted, they have a second account and more, anyway what this person does is he ask's you if you can draw his dragon for him he even says it as an art trade, from what someone said he does do the art trade, but does not post it, and does a bad job at it, but still he is asking you for free art, if you say no to it, he will spam you over and over till you give in, he tries to make you feel bad because you are not doing it for him
he does do the art trade 
from what i know he use's MSPaint, and he copies other people's art work. i would not do the art trade because of this, what i would do is ask them first to do their part and then think before doing it
he tries to make you do it first so he can post the sketch up on his websites he goes on   
this is what his art work looks like, all co


The rabbit hole goes super deep. I encountered him on Tumblr about two weeks ago.

Definitley check it out if you draw dragons. This guy is mostly after HTTYD work, but he's been branching out. He asks for art trades and then threatens to repost your work if you don't agree to it. Enough people know about his shenanigans though that he gets banned super quickly, so don't worry about that too much. But he HAS started targeting people's personal information. 

Here's my conversation with him

dis kid by MadMeeper

They're also considering starting up a petition. Comment on that journal if you'd sign it!

-Please Read- Question about Night flight verselHow many of you would be willing to sign a petition to do something about him?
Just wondering. We're considering different options here.


Go forth and be safe!

Oh man my memory is super fuzzy too, but I think I remember! That was an age ago wow. I wasn't too active on Graphics-Hall, I think I stuck around for maybe a month or so. Kind of fascinating how forum culture has kind of died off haha. And oh yeah I never stopped drawing haha, now I go to school for Animation! It's good stuff heuh

Hey Madmeeper! It's been ages since I've talked to you! :) I've noticed that you're going through school for animation, which is totally rad! Since I also love animating, I don't know if they go through these in class or if you've already seen them, but there are videos on Youtube that talk about the 12 principles of animation, which really helped me out with my stuff. I thought you might find them useful as well! www.youtube.com/watch?v=haa7n3…

Animation is very active on Youtube, so if you're ever looking for some extra practice, there is a collaboration called MAPs (Multi Animator Project) that can range from 5-15 seconds depending on how the parts are split up, and you could do little stories with them and they are a lot of fun (and addicting) to work on. They can be original characters or even a fandom depending on which one you join. A lot of us try to encourage experimenting, so the prompts are different as well for each MAP, and are really fun to try out!

Keep up the good work! I absolutely love the animation you've done so far and can't wait to see more! :D I always love your artwork and your characters! They are all so colorful in personality and style and I've always admired your backgrounds they looks so pretty. I miss seeing all the writing from the RPs we all used to do it was so much fun.

HI FRIEND sorry it took me so long to respond holy moly I'm so bad about that ahhaa. Also was finishing up finals and recovering accordingly pft.

YEAH I'm going to LCAD for animation!! It's good stuff. Thanks for the links to those videos!! I peeked through a couple and I'll keep them on hand. :> 

That's super interesting that you'd say that animation is active on yotuube, I've actually kind of noticed the opposite! I feel like animation is pulling back on youtube and there isn't nearly as much content anymore. Has to do with the minutes watched vs views obtained thing. BUT that being said I do know that animation as a culture has just BOOMED recently and it's really exciting! :> If I ever have any extra time I'll look into MAPs or I'll ask you about them!! They seem super fun, I'm just more busy than I ought to be. 

I LIKE POKING AROUND YOUR STUFF TOO FRIEND I know I'm just totally absent but I do like looking at all the things you make :>

No worries at all! You are a busy lady! I totally feel your pain, haha. :XD: I don't log on here too much since I'm more on Youtube so my messages pile up a little hdjhdjhdjdhdk.

That is so awesome! :excited: No problem at all! These videos like I said, really helped me out there was a lot of problems that I was having that I couldn't figure out like how some of the animation I was doing was turning out really stiff, and setting up the scene with hints for actions or leads, etc were fantastic tips and stuff I didn't actively think about. I rewatch these when I'm stuck on a certain action sometimes too. xDD

That is true! That definitely happened for sure. I feel kind of like the Newground people are a bit less active?! I remember many years ago there wasn't very many people making their own independent animation series but that has really changed over the years. The community itself has really evolved and there is so much involvement it is so much fun on there. There is so many animation series that I'm so excited for like Alcatraz and TKL-05 (If you have time to watch it fhfjfjkhf they posted the opening and it's SOOOOOO AWESOME www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uh05mw…) I KNOW RIGHT?!?! That is fantastic! True true!

Aww shucks, thanks!!! ^^ That really makes me happy to hear aaaaaah! It's a whole lot of fun, even though there is still a long road to improvement, it's still a good one. :iconfinallyplz:
