Reposts vrs Reblogs

kaciart:

I’ve noticed some confusion regarding this so, just to clarify;

  • A repost is where you save a picture onto your computer and make a completely new post. You are not the creator of the image/writing/gifs etc. 
  • A reblog is where you reblog it from the original post. The original poster created the image/writing/gifs etc.
  • Repost = Bad
  • Reblog = Good

Thank you for taking the time to ask and find out the meaning of this. I understand that when you’re new to tumblr sometimes it’s like learning a new language with all the jargon.

Also good to note, please don’t delete comments from the original creator when you reblog. Please please please don’t.

I know I personally ramble in my commentary, and if you want to trim out something, I’d be okay, but PUT SOME SORT OF LINK BACK TO THE ORIGINAL POST and that it is CLEAR you took something out.

Here’s just the Altra art from my Patreon announcement! My little alien space baby. Thought this turned out cute so wanted to post it on it’s own.

Granted, she doesn’t wear skirts that much, if ever. Probably self conscious about her spotty butt (linked image kinda not safe for work).

Amanda/alienfirst here announcing my very own Patreon! This past month saw me quit my day job so I could go freelance full time. There were some very personal reasons for this, and even with the uncertainty of income, it is not a decision I would go back on.

I started a Patreon to help bring in a little extra funds, and to reward those of you who go out of your way to help me out on a monthly basis. As a supporter, you get a special PDF every month of sketches I won’t post anywhere else (aside from teases of course), you get to see new projects earlier than anyone else, and you get to see the progress on the comic featuring Altra, the blue haired alien above (concepts from me, and written lore from my husband, who is the key universe crafter for Altra’s story). The bulk of the world building done for Altra’s story won’t be posted outside of Patreon. There’s also a limited slot tier where you can receive a single character sketch of your choosing every month your funding goes through.

It’s a baby Patreon right now, but if it goes well, I’ll for sure expand upon the supporter tier rewards and the milestone goals. 

COME SUPPORT ME ON PATREON AND GET ACCESS TO CONCEPTS, ILLUSTRATION, LORE BITS, AND MONTHLY SKETCH COMMISSIONS!

(I’ll try not to rebagle this too much. Occasionally. With some teasing art that I’ll post for supporters in full on the Patreon page.)

BUNDAY! A day late, but Bunday none-the-less! Ripley and Newt buns. Perhaps there will be a xenomorph bun in the future…

Bunday Tag (where you can find more Bunday drawings!)

(One of the milestone goals on my Patreon is to make these Bundays a ‘for sure every Sunday’ thing and not just a ‘when I have the time on Sunday’ thing. Some day I hope to have enough of these to make a little booklet to sell at cons!)

Drew some Hermann faces referenced from some screenshots and then drew a corresponding Archimedes. Teeny or fullsize, Archimedes and Hermann kind of unknowingly make the same facial expressions. It really weirds Newt out.

EDIT /// Oh noooo I forgot Archimedes’ nose tendrils on the second one. Oh well, it’s 3AM. Screw it.

Finished commission for Curran!

This is the fourth in a series of Journey images I’ve done for Curran, though the third in a chronological set.

This is ‘Meditation.’

II. First Encounter.

I. The Start.

??. The one that started this all off.

*flops* Okay ya’ll! If you emailed me about wanting a commission (NOT a trade or anything) you should have either an ask on Tumblr or an email from me!

If you DON’T, either Tumblr ate your original message to me, or it ate my message to YOU. I dunno. Tumblr is kinda ridiculous like that.

If you were interested in a commission, you are more than welcome to email me, but, uh, for the first time ever I guess I have a wait list. So you’ll have to wait a little bit, but I’ll certainly put your name down! I have a Googledoc and EVERYTHING now with commissioner info (I know, I’m so organized for once).

My goal with all of these is to get them out quickly, and looking as good as I can. For the record, I left my full time job about a week ago to do this type of thing full time, so you are helping me LIVE by commissioning me, and for that, you are super awesome.

a-girl-named-stu asked: Hi there! I unfortunately missed you at ECCC so I was wondering if you'd be at sakuracon next weekend? I'll be bringing jello and fig newtons!

Unfortunately no! I… have not had really any luck in selling at Sakuracon. I did years ago when you could still apply for an AA table and it didn’t sell out in 30 seconds, and again the year before last when someone was gracious enough to share a table with me.

I will be trying to get to Sakuracon from here on out though. I’d prefer to have one of their small press booths, but I need about 60-80% original content (I think that’s what their guidelines say).

Anyway, that’s a longer answer than what was really necessary! XD

My to do list for this week. In case anyone was waiting on something from me? I dunno. This is mostly for me.

  • Finish commission 
  • Finish that other commission
  • Email back everyone that inquired about a commission
  • Set up a Patreon
  • Email people interested in assisting on the Beyond the Breach fanbook
  • Cry many tears from stress
  • Go to a burlesque show on Saturday and buy drinks with quarters (so many quarters)

I’ll delete this later.

Unused character designs for the iOS game, Nitro. Loved doing these, even if they weren’t used. :)
