I just discovered that the film was suppose to be Dreamwork’s first R rated animated movie. The head honcho of DW finally took notice as he was attending the dailies and made the key decision to change it from an adult film to a family animated feature. Since the film was already deep in production with a lot of the animation was already done, most of the scenes were kept in (to stay within budget), including the infamous “blow job” scene.
This explains why Chel was a tad sexualized throughout the entire movie.
The grim reality is, once Yahoo acquires Tumblr, they’ll be monitoring the content hosted. If you’re not in the know, that means no adult content of any kind given how Yahoo treats their sites that they’ve bought out.
This just clearly shows how out of touch and desperate Yahoo as a company is. While Tumblr is one of the biggest sites with a key demograph of 18~34 year olds, the freedom to post almost anything, reblog about anything and just sharing laughs with your friends is the key reason why it’s so popular. If they choose to start blocking content, that basically means Yahoo just killed off their 1 Billion Dollar demograph they’ve invested so much in.
Hopefully, Yahoo thought it through and preserve the freedom we have with Tumblr, but all signs from their previous purchases point to no.
Here’s some food for thought. Look at how Flickr used to be before and after Yahoo acquired them.

Whenever you cast a creature spell, put a 3/3 green Beast creature token onto the battlefield.
Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, put three +1/+1 counters on target creature you control.
Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you gain 3 life.

Ummm, I didn’t grant anyone permission to use this. Especially for profit.
I don’t mind if I see people wearing/making things with my stuff, but if you’re selling things that I strictly made for free for the community and profiting off if it, we have problems.
Yeah. I am sure you can report this (DMCA and whatnot).
Sooo stealing characters is ok but not stealing art. Cool story, bro.
Hey yo, it must be great to sound like one of the “cool kids” with a random quip. I’m sure the sound of canned laughter and applause can be heard somewhere…
There’s a huge difference between me creating fan art REQUESTED by my followers/randoms, drawing them and charging ZERO dollars, NIL favors, & virtually NO COMPENSATION in return. I don’t ask or run random contests for followers, much less run my Tumblr as a cover to do private commissions, playmats, alters, t-shirt prints, etc. There’s no business card on the corner of my page or any real contact information. I am here to only entertain people. That is all.
Also, I guess EVERY aspiring artist in the past century are also thieves too with your rational thought. I guess that makes Jim Lee and every art student are thieves or master criminals. Heaven forbid all the fandom that goes around tumblr, much less anyone that’s drawn their favorite cartoon character on the corner of the notebook during a lecture.
My problem is that the images people requests are not meant to be sold or distributed for financial gain. They’re gifts I’m giving back to the community. I cannot comprehend how you would trivialize fanart as stealing from anyone when it wasn’t sold or even intended to be sold. The guy that ripped my art either from Google images or my DA, didn’t get my permission to reproduce it, much less charging $25 for it.
Let me be EXTRA clear as well since a lot of 4Chan/Reddit users don’t bother even browsing past the first page of Tumblr and just believe in rumors and MMO junkies.
I have NEVER charged for any of the sketches that you see here on my Tumblr. I have NEVER drawn full frontal nudity, much less anything close to a pay-wall rule 34 site. In addition to that, WotC and I are in good standings currently.
There are no rumors, speculation or even a court hearing, much less anyone else claiming they’re in the know of my legal business. If there are such people just bragging about it, they’re most likely lying through their teeth for attention. What was said to me by WotC’s attorney’s are between me and my lawyer. No one else.
“What was said to me by WotC’s attorney’s are between me and my lawyer. No one else.” Except whoever reads the letters from them that you post here to rally your followers against the Big Bad Corporation.
The only difference between your stealing of intellectual property and their stealing of intellectual property is that you’re very open about from where you steal. FWIW, I agree that they shouldn’t be stealing from you; that doesn’t mean you’re not in the wrong as well.
Wait, how am I stealing? Did I make money off their IP? No. Do I claim their works as mine? No. Do I have their characters on my professional portfolios that I hand out to my clients? No.
Under fair use laws of the United States of America, I am allowed limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from WotC/Hasbro. You know, because that’s how Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged, Dragon Ball Abridged, Plinket’s Star Wars Reviews, Family Guy, SNL, MAD TV, MAD Magazine, and various Batman: XXX Porn Parodies are all possible. Further more, I am granted protection under parody laws in the United States. So before you shoot off another smirky remark, I don’t recall asking your opinion of the matter, specifically only to get the last word in, like a child.
Because quite frankly, you don’t care what I do for the community and you obviously don’t contribute anything other than snappy remarks for attention.
Finally, I called WotC’s legal department personally to help resolve the issues. What was said was strictly between myself, my lawyer and WotC’s Attorney. Why else did you think this blog would still be up and running? I had to make a few compromises, but it allows me to continue entertaining everyone. We’re both willing to work with each other and that’s what we did and why this tumblr is still up and running and I’m returning back to making comics.
Whereas you’re the one speculating and coming to quick/false conclusions to everything, such as fanart = thief. Better lock up every artist on Deviant Art right?
I’m not a fan of drama, so I suggest you should drop it.
