No matter what it is, I've watched Korra and it's pretty swell.

I watched the first 5 or 6 episodes of Avatar. Considering I'm a massive shounenhag I should probably have liked it, I didn't.

Second and third season are way better. It's more about themes and story than plain Faiya Powa. It's my favorite psuedo-anime.

I like Korra because it's got a steampunk setting.

Not sure, but I thought Korra was a new series to Avatar? idk I'm not much of an anime person

Korra is what I would call "soft core anime." It's not really anime in the traditional sense. I'm not much of an anime person either

I think it is penises, it usually is.

The sense that is isn't Japanese and is animated with that awful flash style animation. I guess you mean it has a plot but isn't Japanese.

Awful? Korra's animation is great. Yeah, I guess at least a part of it is that it's American, and most animes are Japanese.

As far as the term is used outside of its original Japanese meaning, all anime are Japanese. Maybe not completely, though, like Code Lyoko or Afro Samurai, but to an extent they have to be.

And yeah, Korra has great animation, as does season 3 of TLA

I tried to watch Korra, but only got to about ep4 or5 before getting bored. I was never a fan of Avatar tbh

The early parts of the first Avatar series weren't very interesting, no.

And considering American animation is never actually animated in the US (because lel outsourcing to Asia), who knows what's anime and what's not. The wonderful thing that is Batman: The Animated Series, for example, had animation outsourced to studio Sunrise. Made in Japan. Is it anime?

Yeah I agree. It was pretty good the whole way through, But it started to become AMAZING halfway through Book 2.

Some really good deals on the current Humble Bundle.
Unfortunately I don't feel like playing any of the games that are on there.

I'm pretty crap at icons and, well, making tags from existing images in general.

If anyone went all out and drew 9 pictures for something as pointless as a 3x3 I would be impressed.

Edit - I guess having it all in the same style might look gud though.

True.

I think my biggest issue is that when I see a picture's composition, I don't want to alter it and change the entire feeling. Yet another curse of artistry.

I should try and look for bigger icons for my avatar. But alas. Classic 100x100

I'm waiting for the admins to change the maximum avatar size to 1000x1000.

It'll totally happen! Believe it!

I guess thoughts on this would vary from artist to artist. If it was me putting out art on the public domain, be it a song, a picture of Konata from Lucky Star eating a chocolate cornet wearing a school swimming costume or a video of me and some fellow football team members doing the Hare Hare Yukai I wouldn't mind what people did with it. In fact if somebody wanted to remix something I made it might even feel nice. Of course some will not but I would hope the higher percentage would agree with me, you're putting things on the internet after all

Out of interest what would your reaction be if you spotted somebody using one of your pictures as a set somewhere?

I always wanted a gif avatar that isn't a Pokemon sprite but I can never find something that fits the 100KB size limit, and also I can't seem to utilize LunaPic well.

I'm not the old-timey, stubborn kind who wants to combat the sharing of my work. If the stuff I make can inspire others and give them ideas to continue upon, that's great. Work I do for money I don't generally put up online, anyway. The only thing I'm adamantly against is commercial use of things without my permission. But that's irrelevant.
From people using my things for purposes without monetary gain, all I can expect is for them to follow their morals and common sense. I'd rather not it be misrepresented/given a whole different meaning. But it's basically an honour system.

Which leaves giving credit. Something I expect of everyone to view as common courtesy. Of course I won't expect them to shove a big URL on their avatar. But a little title tag somewhere explaining where they got it from is appreciated. No matter what, it's usually fine if they don't start claiming credit where they shouldn't. Putting a photoshop filter over someone's drawing and saying "credit: me" isn't very nice at all, as you'd expect. It also annoys me whenever I see a photoset that says "credit: konachan/tumblr/google". It just shows a massive lack of effort to look things up (and it also makes you look like a massive tool).



But again, it's an honour system.

Regarding tags and signature banners and such in general, I don't mind them, because they don't hurt anyone.

Now, editing artwork might imply to some people that you don't consider it good enough as it is. That's something I want more people to consider. Adjusting colours and cropping to make it fit in your context is of course necessary in many sets. It's not done with any offense in mind, but once you start doing major changes for seemingly no reason, you start to wonder why exactly that was necessary.





Also, people who go out of their way to actively remove watermarks/signatures.

**** those guys.

When I see a big ugly watermark on a good piece of art it makes me sad. I have gone out of my way to remove them in the past just to see an untarnished picture.
