NSFW Art Scam Commissioner
So I’m gonna make a post so people can be warned about a dude who scammed me out of 50 bucks. You know last week when I was doing emergency commissions for a friend? I took on a big handful of commissions, miscounted the payments, and did everyone’s pictures when only 7 of the 8 people had paid. Normally I double check before working, but this person evaded me this time because of my mistake - and the picture was a speedpaint to be done as quickly as possible so I could get back to my work. That was a week ago.
The scammer’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org
if you get an email from this person inquiring about a commission, PLEASE get payment upfront. Be adamant. Someone else approached me and said he’s going by “pon ho”, he was going by “kinky hooves” when he sent the email to me. But his email is still email@example.com
The subject matter he tried to get from the other person (and the same material he scammed out of me) was a Mightyena anthro, by the name of “Alice” - but be wary if anyone by another email asks you for a Mightyena anthro with big boobs!
He tried to get another picture out of me before I realized his payment didn’t go through — this time because there were no other emails received from Paypal, so I checked to find he hadn’t paid at all. So I requested payment. It “didn’t send” - we “found out” it was because of a typo. So I asked him to send it again. It didn’t arrive. I asked to see the receipt 3 different times and he didn’t send it or would ignore me until I sent another email asking something else. The other artist who told me about this guy trying to scam her said that as soon as she asked for payment, he stopped replying.
The guy tried to claim paypal “was taking its time” but as someone who sends and receives international money, I knew this was bogus (since he said he was trying to pay in a foreign currency). He also didn’t want to forward the receipt, and instead wanted to screencap it because it “had personal info” - but we all know that Paypal receipts are the same for both parties.. but he didn’t even screencap it. It was all bogus.
A week later, he still hasn’t paid it. And is going around trying to “Commission” (scam) other people, who ended up talking to me because they saw my post on my NSFW blog and were wary.
So please take caution and always remember to take money up front! Either 50/50 or 100% if you have a good reputation for finishing them with no issue. Learn from my blunder!
*university voice* unfortunately… we have too much money… so we have to raise tuition so we can build a place to keep all the other money in… so sorry unavoidable

a kid from my high is fucking trending on facebook because of a stupid petition to get a senior photo of him holding a cat into the yearbook…
My principal decided to join him in a photo.
The new photograph will go in the yearbook as a way to raise awareness for American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and rescue animals like Mr. Bugglesworth and Vivienne.
Common affinities: Earth, Clay, Water, Air and Cloud elements
Notes: The majority of known Satyrs possess these elements as affinities.
Uncommon affinities: Fire and Fire subtypes
Notes: Satyrs with non-Earth affinities do exist, but are considered unusual. Fire and Fire subtype affinities are almost never seen in Satyrs. It is unknown if this is from biological or personality conditions.
Hereditary influence: Earth elements are easily passed down from parent to offspring as affinities. If a satyr is born from two non-Earth affinity parents, it will inherit at random one to two parental affinities. If only one parent has an Earth-element affinity, the offspring will usually always inherit it.
Environmental influence: Satyrs readily change affinities to match their environment, provided the environment is rich in an Earth element. If not, Satyrs tend to remain unchanged.
Elemental weaknesses, common: Fire, Ice, Acid
Notes: Satyrs dislike elements normally seen as destructive to wildlife, and more often than not are themselves susceptible to the harmful effects of these elements.
Elemental resistances, common: Clay, Earth, Water
Notes: These elements are favored among Satyrs for their ready ability to nurture plants and animals. Satyrs are familiar
with these elements even if not possessing an affinity for them.
Locations, common: Gnawth, Mica, Croon Fens
Habitation preference: Satyrs are a highly empathetic, social species. It is almost unheard of to find a Satyr living in isolation. They get along with all other major species on Owel, and readily integrate themselves into non-Satyr communities.
Climate preference: Satyrs enjoy temperate environments with moderate to frequent rainfall, with Gnawth being the best example of a climate they prefer. They dislike harsh environments. A general rule of thumb to go by is: if you can’t grow a forest there, Satyrs won’t want to live there.
- All Satyrs are born ambidextrous and remain so for the rest of their lives.
- Satyrs convert all ingested poisons, regardless of potency, into alcohol. The workings of this process are currently a mystery.
- Satyrs are highly compatible with other species regarding producing offspring, second only to Flowercats. Satyr hybrids are one of the most common hybrid types on Owel.
- Satyrs are mainly female, with an average of one in eight being male.
- Satyr-imps are a common sight in Hellside. Why is unknown.
- Satyrbuns have a tendency to have a snobbish attitude toward music or singing that lacks magic.
- Satyrbuns often feel that since their singing is innately magical, it is “better” than any other kind of singing. Since Satyrbuns are not necessarily skilled at singing itself, this can lead to arguments between an unskilled Satyrbun singer and a skilled non-Satyrbun singer.
- Flower Candies do have flowers and plants often growing from them, just like Satyrs, but usually in mineral form.
- It is very common to find Flower Candies that glow in the dark, or that have some sort of natural bioluminescence.
- Satyrqorns are only begrudgingly put up with in many communities, as their eccentric attitudes test the patience of everyone they meet.
- Satyrqorns almost always have extremely long, arbitrarily complex names, and will insist you call them by their full name whenever you address them.
- Satyrfoxes dislike being confused for pure Satyrs or for any other pure fox race.
- Satyrfoxes are commonly looked down upon by pure fox communities.
Most people consider mushrooms to be the small, ugly cousins of the plant kingdom, but theirs is surprisingly beautiful and wonderful world waiting to be explored. These beautiful mushrooms, captured by enthusiastic nature photographers, are a far cry from the ones you find in the woods or your local grocery store.
Most mushrooms, as we know them, are actually just the reproductive structure of the fungus they belong to – their fungal networks expand far further underground, and some fungi don’t even sprout the sort of mushrooms that we’re used to seeing. In fact, depending on your definition of “organism,” the largest living organism in the world is a fungus – there’s a honey mushroom colony in Oregon that occupies about 2,000 acres of land!

Nature is amazing.

I just don’t understand where this concept of ‘fake geek girls’ came from. Like, AT ALL.
Cus when I look for fandom related stuff like 90% of the fan art and the fanfiction and the meta, zines, comics, etc. Like 90% of the shit that I’ve seen is created by women & girls.
And all that stuff take’s a lot of work and research and critical analysis and staring at reference photos for hours.
We are literally the most well versed and invested group in the fandom. So, like, What the fuck boys? You mad you can’t keep up?
I saw an argument, and I can’t find it now, but it totally made sense, that there’s a gender split in fandom. Male fandom tends to be a curator fandom; male fandom collects, organizes, and memorizes facts and figures. Male fandom tends to be KEEPERS of the canon; the fandom places great weight on those who have the biggest collection, the deepest knowledge of obscure subjects, the first appearances, creators, character interactions.
Female fandom is creative. Females create fanart, cosplay, fanwritings. Female fandom ALTERS canon, for the simple reason that canon does not serve female fandom. In order for it to fit the ‘outsider’ (female, queer, POC), the canon must be attacked and rebuilt, and that takes creation.
"Male" fandom devalues this contribution to fandom, because it is not the ‘right’ kind of fandom. "Girls only cosplay for attention, they’re not REAL fans!" "Fanfiction is full of stupid Mary Sues, girls only do it so they can make out with the main character!" "I, a male artist, have done this pin-up work and can put it in my portfolio! You, a female artist, have drawn stupid fanart, and it’s not appropriate to use as a professional reference!"
In the mind of people who decry the ‘fake geek girl,’ this fandom is not as worthy. It damages, or in their mind, destroys the canon. What is the point of memorizing every possible romantic entanglement of heterosexual white Danny Rand if someone turns around and creates a fanwork depicting him as a bisexual female of Asian descent (thus subverting Rand’s creepy ‘white savior’ origins)? When Danny Rand becomes Dani Rand, their power is lessened. What is important to them ceases to be the focus of the discussion. Creation and curatorship can work in tandom, but typically, in fandom, they are on opposite poles.
This is not to say that there aren’t brilliant male cosplayers or smashing female trivia experts, this is to say that the need of the individual fan is met with opposing concepts: In order for me to find myself in comics, I need to make that space for myself, and that is a creative force. Het white cis males are more likely to do anything possible to defend and preserve the canon because the canon is built to cater to them.
This is genuinely the best post I have ever read.
Comment bolded by me because effing important that’s why.
