Artist Friends, I Need Your Opinions!

So we all know about WeLoveFine and how they kinda rip off the artists in their competitions. Well I submitted a piece for the HTTYD contest because I’m in desperate need of money right now, and the grand prize is up to $2000. But now I’m having second thoughts.

I could submit my design to my Redbubble or Society6 instead and make money off of it that way, and also retain the rights to it. But then again, I might not get the $2000 that I could get from WeLoveFine. I really like the design though, and the idea of completely losing the rights to it, of it being able to be used/edited however they want, and not getting any percentage of final sales from WeLoveFine kinda bugs me.

I’m torn. So I turn to you, my friends. What do you think I should do? Keep it in the contest or sell it on my own?

Since I’m still trying to grow and improve as an artist, I’m going to try to post at least a sketch a day. I’ll be tagging all of them as “daily doodles” so if you’d prefer not to see them, feel free to block this tag. I won’t judge.
Today I decided to start with some figure drawing before work.

The same goes for this blog as well. I&#8217;ll tag all of them as &#8220;daily doodles&#8221; or if you prefer not to see my art at all (I don&#8217;t mind really) you can block the tag &#8220;nokki art&#8221;.

You know, I found this gif, and I realized that something that I kind of skimmed over in the movie.
The intense care with which Cloudjumper handles Valka. Like, Hiccup and Toothless, hell all of the other dragons and riders kind of rough up each-other sometimes. All with love and care, but friendly little toss-up and the likes occur. Again, they are with young adults, so it is expected.
But Cloudjumper acknowledges Valka as one of their own, also acknowledges that as a human, Valka is much more prone to simpler damages than others. And is so in-synch with her, that this tender love and care just shows in every smooth and gentle move. His care for Valka is also extremely present in the eyes, which we have learned that wide pupils mean gentle, positive feelings, while thin, cat-like pupils mean negative, angry emotions, or the alpha’s control.
So to speak, Cloudjumper is definitely someone who knows the exact boundaries he has, concerning his own power, and what others can handle. He will not accidentally push someone, dragon or human, too hard.
I’m not saying that the other dragons do not have such fond emotions for their riders, but the age difference shows in how it is present.

He even keeps one of his wings below her just in case she slips. How freaking adorable is that?

THIS RIDE MESSED ME UP

master-jericho: If I was still into the programming and modelling part of it, I probably would be, but I had a bitch of a teacher in high school that ruined the whole thing for me. So I've come to decide that I want to be an Actor, director or cameraman. Something mildly important. I wouldn't even mind doing voice overs. But that doesn't exactly merit the attendance to a $40,000 a year school...

Aw I’m so sorry that your teacher ruined modeling and programing for you! It’s terrible when the ones that are supposed to help us learn end up just ruining things for us instead.

That’s pretty cool that you’re looking to work in the film industry though. Even though you may not need to go to a fancy pants art school for it, there are definitely (or at least it seems like) more job opportunities in film then there are for artists. Best of luck man!
