Fan Art... The End or a New Beginning?

As many of you know, I've been doing fan art posts since I started my blog! Well, we may see the end of that because of the new bill, S.O.P.A. and P.I.P.A., that will possibly pass through the senate this Tuesday. So, this Monday will be a special, "The End or a New Beginning" Fan Art post, reflecting on the Fan Art posts we've shared throughout the time I've had my blog! And, really, just reflecting on the blog in general! This bill could shut me down. And it's not just affecting Americans, from what I've heard.

Before I go on to tell you about the special Fan Art post, I'll tell you what S.O.P.A. is, what it means for sites like mine(and people's private social networking sites as well), and what you can do.

Well, S.O.P.A. stands for the Stop Online Piracy Act. It will allow our government to delete pictures, and or sites, from the Internet if they feel they are violating copyright. However, this is more than just people trying to make things look like it is theirs... if you do not fully own something, you won't be able to put it on the Internet.

This will affect not only fan sites like mine, but also people's profiles on sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. If you don't fully own something, you can't put it on the Internet, AT ALL!

So, for obvious reasons many people are against it, and, tens of millions of people have been trying to defend their rights. In the past week alone the senatorial vote for "no" went from 5 to 35, leaving only 6 more "no" votes for it not to pass. People have been posting pictures such as these all over the Internet...

And a lot of people have put this picture as their profile picture on Facebook to show their dislike for the bill...

Anyway... moving onto more exciting things... this Monday will be the special post, as I said earlier. What it will be is a post reflecting back on my Fan Art posts by showing the top three Fan Art post, and the top three Fan Art pictures! All you have to do is go to my Facebook page, like it (if you haven't already), and then go to the albums Fan Art, Volume I and/or Fan Art, Volume II. If you see your favorite post in that album, go down to the bottom and comment, "My favorite post is (name of post)." Next go to your favorite picture (it doesn't have to be in your favorite post, and you can pic more than one), in the comment box write "VOTE." Have fun! I can't wait to see what your favorites are! And come back Monday to see what posts and pictures won! Until next time, MTFBWY!


  1. I totally agree with the piracy stuff since I got my work copied before.
    I also so some fan art, and I totally like your style. If I may, can I do something similar...? Of course I'll write credits to Brad and so... but I just wanna ask you first if I can do something like that :) Would you count it as copying?

  2. Yeah, sure! You only have to credit me if you take pictures from here and share them.

  3. Well we didn't get enough votes for today's scheduled post, however, there still will be a special Fan Art post of Pre Vizsla in two days! It possibly will have the most pictures of any post!
