- who’s in the front, who’s in the middle, and who’s in the back - who acts like it’s not going to be a big deal but actually screams at the top of their lungs when someone in the group’s hand brushes their arm - who’s scared about going in but they’re the only one who keeps their cool - who keeps narrating their adventure in a deep voice as they wander through the haunted house - and, of course, who loses their shoe as they run out of the attraction
Hey guys! you may have seen some posts from me floating around Tumblr today, about how Andrew Hussie heavily referenced an old piece of art that I made with a friend, rukafais, for the latest update of Homestuck. The art in question is this, posted on DA in December 2010:
and the update art in question was this, posted October 18th 2014:
most of the posts going around either point out the inspiration, or are about my subsequent displeasureat the event. (I think there are more posts floating around than the ones I’ve linked, but those are ones that I feel are important!) the biggest beef that Ruka and I had about the event was that Hussie did not consult us at all, nor ask permission to involve our old work in the comic. I also took a bit of offense at the fact that this art was involved directly with Caliborn, a character who is often used to mock “shitty art” and poor design. Considering that the original drawing was made while I was a young teen, I feel like that’s a pretty big offense.
well, after a lot of hemming and hawing (and a horrible deluge of notes for me both on Tumblr and DA), Andrew has issued credit in the News section of MSPA:
he also explains his reasoning for this in this section, which I appreciated. I didn’t know where he was coming from before, so I’m glad I do now!
In addition, he also apologized to me (and partially to Ruka) on Twitter:
I was very glad to see this! I know that Hussie has been weird about this sort of thing in the past, but I’m glad that we were able to get a reaction from him by reaching out and raising awareness.
Thanks to everyone who spread awareness! please reblog this post to let people know that things have basically been resolved. and, sorry in advance for stretching folks’ dashes… hopefully this’ll be the last super serious post I have to make about this!
Imagine finding a dragon egg one day, and it hatches in your house and thinks you’re its mom. Then the next morning you wake up and find this mini dragon has gathered all the lose change and shiny objects in your house in a pile, and is gnawing on a nickel. And then when you take it out for walks, it picks up every coin it sees cause its a hoarder. And your house is eventually full of coins. And you are rich. And have a dragon.
