Anime North @ Dealers room

Wed Apr 22, 2015, 5:52 PM

Just a PSA letting everyone that I WILL go to Anime North this year! There was a lot of back and forth since I didn't make it at first, but in the end I'll be in the Dealers Room instead of the usual comic market, and I'll have my usual table set up with the giant wall of posters and stuff.

I will post again closer to the con when I know about table location and stuff (:

thank you! Yo have high quality, crisp lines, try using a much bigger canvas (around 5k max on either side) and a solid brush, and a lot of patience. When you're done with the line/the drawing, and resize it smaller, you will find the line art looking much better (:

hi! While browsing Da, I stubled across some art from your manga and started reading it. It's really nice! Also, I'm new to DA and I don't know how it works, so I might hzve overlooked something, but I wanted to know if you drew request from ppl? Or you might be too busy with your work already!
thx in advance!

thanks! I don't do requests, sorry ):

Hi! First off, I'd like to say that I think you're an amazing artist!
It's not just that you draw well, but it's your dedication that impresses me above all. I may be a new member, but I'm not new to dA. I've been watching your art for a few years actually and i've seen your progress. You've been working hard on your manga too and even now you're still at it. Unfortunately, I must admit I've been lagging behind in the story but I'll definitely take the proper time to catch up!
Once I'm a little better off, I'll be happy to support you on Patreon. Please keep up the good work, I'm looking forward to it :).

Hello Shilin! how's it hanging?
I hope I'm not taking most of your time but I got a question,
Have you ever had/experienced someone take one of your art works without asking you? if so how do you deal with it?
I've recently had one of my art work taken without knowledge, which made me which self concious with my other art works.

I'd appreciate the help, thanks! ^^
P.s Your art is amazing! it inspires me to do my best

If I see that it's a one off incident, I try to talk to them about how it's theft/wrong because I assume it could be that they just didn't know any better. If their entire gallery is stolen then I just report them on whatever website they are posting the stuff on. If it's a big deal like they're selling stolen work in a prolific manner then I publicize it on my sites, but that's a privilege I have because I have a large enough following for that to make a bit of difference.

For as long as you post online, your art will be stolen and you can only accept it as a price to pay for harnessing the power of the internet in giving you exposure and spreading your works. Stolen works rarely actually damages you because your audience and the thief's audience rarely cross. It's easy to think "all these people could have seen my art instead of theirs", or "all these things stolen and sold could have been money for me", but the reality is they most likely won't because whether or not they have come across the stolen work from a thief, it doesn't change the fact that they have not come across the work from you and therefore they are not your potential new fan/customer. (there are exceptions of course but this is what happens most of the time) So don't be too worried about posting more work online, and hope that your own good practices will be a good example for all your peers, and that we all build a positive art community where art theft is known to be inherently wrong by everyone because we have good examples set for us to respect each other's works.

Thank you for giving me a different view of art theft, I didn't really have
much knowledge of what it's like, and i didn't think that this would happen
to me which is why it hit me quite hard. I really do appreciate you taking
some of your time replying to my message. It gave me more confidence
with what I can further do with my art. I really must thank you for helping
me with this, it really means a lot to me.
I've always dreamed of being at a stage like where you are. Creating amazing 
art works, have such an supportive followers and not to mention, Create your 
own Manga books. (I've always wanted to create my own, but I never have
the time to start) But that's something I gotta work for.

Thank you again for taking some of your time replying to my message.
I will continue to support you with whatever I can do. (I've always wanted
to buy all of your Carciphona books, but I'm so broke haha)
