The past few months have been quite hard on me.
I'm not looking for a pity party or anything - just stating it.
I'm at an impasse at the moment and have decided to stop.
I kind of already have since I have been gone a while.
About a month ago or so I got an email from DA saying I was posting copyright infringing arts -
A woman by the name of Julie McKendrick of Funimation DCMA'ed me.
Funny thing is I was not making any money off of the arts and I was also not stealing any works -
All my arts were uniquely my own and drawn my way - not traced or copied at all.
She reported me twice - after three copyright strikes DA bans your account making it inaccessible.
I've had this account for over 8 years and the arts had been up for a while too -
What gives her the right to ban my account? Who is she to ban my works?
Justin Riojas of Funimation (The President) gave me expressed permission to post arts but how the fuck would I even say this to DA when they just instaban me or don't even GIVE THE OPTION TO REPLY TO THEM.
I took down my DBZ arts -
If you like any of my other crap work I suggest you download it because I only need one more strike before this account gets banned altogether.
On top of all of that -
When I was moving my mom decided to help despite me saying I was ok.
When I went to go inside I heard something drop.
I looked to find my mother saying "Oh fuck!" and my harddrive with all my life's work in it sprawled on the pavement.
I'm not sure if it can be repaired.
- Tried hooking it up with parts in the house but to no avail it just wouldn't power on.
All of my manga and patreon projects are just fucking gone at the moment.
I have no choice but to start over for the time being seeing as how I don't have any spare money from the move.
Plus I need a job since I can't rely on making money artistically for a while.
I really can't say I feel great.
There's no option to quit though.
This shit needs to get redone and I need to set up my patreon -
So since everything is up in the air right now (assuming my account doesn't get banned) I'll come back and link my patreon whenever it's set up.
