Ok so I was okay keeping my mouth shut (for the most part lmao) until she posted an art pack. Tracing for like the fun of tracing (and learning) is not as bad as tracing and getting paid to do so. But it’s still bad. And not cool.
miss-vani is a pretty ballsy tracer. Tracing slugbox mostly, and I’m sure many other people. I could waste hours of my life going through her gallery finding the things she’s stolen.. but this should be proof enough.
At the very least she needs to be crediting the people she’s tracing as well as letting people she does art trades and commissions for know that the pieces are not her own original creations.
Please do not buy her art pack or commission her and support this.
Not crediting is my biggest peeve
i hate to be a bitch, but this is fucking uncalled for! this girl needs to be put down! i had a similar run in with an artist years back. i had proof she traced from other artists but they just kept saying the referenced it and got away with it. im sure they are still up to their old tricks! fuck this chick!
James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.
Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.
In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

my design your own demon entry for avasdemon contest!
Coyote is my lil demon. not all demons are large.
she spends most of her time floating about or tucked away in a pocket. shes extremely fond of snacks. she generally eats when shes awake. she much like her native American counter part is very tricky. she loves to teach life lessons. though most times shes ignored. her voice is small and although she speaks the truth, most times her pain goes unheard as well. i imagine those are the things that she tends to pass to me. if i don’t listen i end up with problems. when others don’t listen we get frustrated. she brings me much pain and such joy as well as Doge quotes and midnight snack runs. if im up late shes the culprit. if im snacky its because shes whispering to me about food. she wears a little bag around her neck which holds all her power. if she were ever to loose it she would disappear into dust. she reminds me of a pixie in nature.
