    Instead of an art shop, this is a graphic shop! I make semi-advanced graphics to advanced graphics, depending on how detailed you would like it.

    Here's an example of my work.


    I mostly do feline and/or other animal graphics, and sometimes anime graphics. But, I can really work with anything.

    Here's the form if you'd like a graphic!

    Username:
    User Status:
    Picture URL (the picture MUST not be copyrighted):
    Text:
    Subtext:
    Text Color:
    Text Font:
    Texture (what kind of detail would you like for your graphic? i.e.; sparkles, dokeh, shimmer, dusk, bold, intense dark edges, etc.):
    Anything I should know(?):

    I think I can shed some light on the reason no one has posted. There are a few reasons I've noticed.

    1: This is way too easy.

    If I wanted to do something like this, I open up the doodlebuddy app, or the instacollage app, or one of the ten thousand other apps that can do this. Or I open up Microsoft word or powerpoint. Anyone can do this.

    2: People are lazy. (At least I am.)

    I think this is a neat idea, I really do, but I don't want to go looking for a picture, finding the URL, and filling out all that pointless profile information. (You do realize that the username and status are already displayed, right?)

    3: This isn't in high demand.

    I didn't wake up this morning and say to myself, "I really need a graphic. Like, right now." Building of my other point, I'll expand. Even if I did wake up and say that, I could make one myself, which is easier than filling out an info sheet and waiting for it to be made.

    4: No replies?

    People might be concerned with the reliability of this whole thing. I've seen lots of other users post "I'm taking requests!" And then a month later they still haven't even acknowledged the posts. This happens with a lot of other things, like those "ask me questions" threads, or those "I'll give my opinion on you!" threads. I'm not saying you'd do this, but some people might worry.

    These graphics can be used outside of this site.
    And a friendly form would be nice, you know..

    Did you read any of what I just said? -.-

    I'm aware they can be used outside GTQ, but what would anyone use them for? (Just curious)

    I'm one of those who says I'm going to do some art project, and then I never do it.

    I still owe GTQ a drawing of Silicon as a person.

    Friendly form? Lucky was pretty friendly ._.

    my reasoning for this is that I take actual issue with this, because in itself it's a form of art theft and I don't approve of using non-stock images for use without the permission of the owner.

    I've had artist friends who had their artwork taken and added bulls--- edits and then the dumbwad that edited it had the gall to claim that they made the entire thing. It's infuriating because it happens so often.

    Avatars, signatures, etc.

    Oh wow.

    The picture was not at all copyrighted. I'd assume the owner would let us use it.

    And I'n talking about an order, not a friendly opinion to clarify.

    Alright (to the friendly order thing)

    before I continue on, I'm going to say this first: I speak out of education, not out of spite. I'm not doing this to talk down to you or make you feel like a bad person or anything, please don't misunderstand ;~;

    Art is something I'm largely passionate about and is the industry field I'm going to be entering, this means I need to learn everything about it; this includes copyright laws and what counts as copyright infringement etc.

    "The picture was not at all copyrighted. I'd assume the owner would let us use it. "

    Then I would assume you got it from a website that was advertising "free stock" because if not, you can't assume the owner would let you use it. Everything an artist (photographers included) puts out has a natural copyright whether it's legally done or not. It's still usable in court. Taking images from stock websites (free for use pictures) still require you to credit the source sometimes. There are things to be careful of and most people don't really know this (i don't really expect them to know all about copyright but professionals really should and they still don't).

    People "assume" the owner would let people repost their work on other websites and sell the image on tshirts and stuff but that's never the case. The owner WILL get angry and WILL demand compensation/take legal action/for you to cease and decist/take it down.

    It's unlikely to happen on a small domain site like this but that's not really the point: the point is that you can't just assume the owner would just let a random stranger take their work and use it without asking them. That's like taking someone's homework off their desk without asking, adding a bit to it to make it seem like yours, and handing it in and saying "It's okay! they let me use it."

    So yeah, please don't get the wrong impression, I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'm just explaining a thing.

    ..How do you explain your gif thread?
    Where do you get your gifs?
    I'm equally trying to prove my own point, just I'm not trying to offend.

    I don't claim the gifs are my own, nor do I meddle with them and change their original state

    If I can find the original source of the gif, I post the link with it, but often times I can't.

    reposting a gif isn't the same as taking someone elses photograph and adding more to it without asking their permission. And as a gif maker myself, I find that most people in the gif community (if not making original animations) don't care whether or not the gif gets reposted because it's like an internet meme: it's meant to be spread around.

    This is basically my policy on these things, it's okay to *share* artwork but not to claim it as your own.

    Ugh some people are so quick to shut down what others want to do.
    @Br0wnieBunny This could be a fun thing to do for your friends and family with pics that they draw, paint, or take with an actual camera. As long as you get permission. If they want you to do it, then it's your choice. Just make sure you get permission!
