I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.

[blaster bolt narrowly misses head]

Okay, maybe it's not wise to steal even words from a bounty hunter!

Welcome to my DeviantArt page, where I plan to post my Zootopia Chronicles comic book adaptation! I may post other things from time to time here as well, such as some of the work I do that doesn't involve Zootopia, or sketchdumps and doodles. I hope you enjoy what I post and I look forward to bringing you more.



I wanna sleep, but I'm on a roll with the new Aftermath chapter.

Sleep first, though. Can't function without it, and at least I managed to finish the hosptial section. Next up is busting Lionheart out a bit earlier than I had before. Gonna have to make him mayor again as he's mayor in at least two post-Zootopia scenarios. Plus: what will Nick do with that plot of land he owns?
So they have just started announcing the cast for The Lion King's remake. James Earl Jones returns as Mufasa, and Donald Glover is replacing Matthew Broderick as Simba. No news yet on who's playing Scar, but if they ask Jeremy Irons and he refuses, other good choices would be Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleston.
So my English Literature research project is out the door! Woot!
The Aftermath Cover (Lineart)
Here is what I have in mind for the new cover for "The Aftermath". The pose is based on one from a promotional picture from "Digimon Adventure 02: Hurricane Touchdown". This will be coloured in Photoshop (or maybe I'll give the Autodesk Sketchbook app on my tablet a go).
As the title says. Let's talk art theft.

I'll give you a little bit of a backstory here. Art theft is actually what brought me here to DeviantArt nearly nine years ago. I used to use a little place called MediaMiner (which I now avoid like the plague). I posted a few scribbles there, nothing more than the doodles of a child mind in hindsight. Then one day, I got an e-mail from somebody who told me that somebody had stolen one of my pieces from MediaMiner and uploaded it onto here. So I joined this site to ask for the stolen art to be taken down. It was, and I decided this site would better serve my purposes than MediaMiner.

So that's that. I am here because of an act of art theft.

Now, to me and to others, there's a lot that goes into our best works on art on here. It's kind of like we're pouring our thoughts, our own selves in a way, our souls into our art. To be honest, up until I joined the Zootopia fandom I never saw all that much in the way of art theft. But with a franchise that has proved to be as big as Zootopia, inevitably it's resulted in an explosion of fan works... and that has, inevitably, enticed art thieves.

And that's not okay. That's not cool. Like I said, we're pouring our thoughts, our selves into these works, and we're doing it all for free, in our spare time, for the love of doing it. It's an insult when somebody comes along, steals your work and then reuploads it where they can monetize it and claim that it's theirs, when everybody will know it is not. You're the one who has put all that effort in, only for some jerk to take all the credit? Wrong, shameful and despicable.

To the art-thieves themselves, I will make this plain: I DO NOT GIVE YOU PERMISSION TO TAKE MY WORK, UPLOAD IT ANYWHERE ELSE, MONETIZE IT OR DO ANYTHING BEYOND WHAT I UPLOAD IT FOR. If I find out that this has happened, I will do what I must.

The final thing I wish to say here, is this:

With this Journal entry I, gistech, give you, as my followers, the right to file a complaint on my behalf. If you are to come across any work of mine that is either monetized or in any other way "misused", you have my permission to act. 

Do notify me first if you see anyone else uploading my work without crediting me. I will contact them about the situation, and if nothing changes, then we can act upon it.

How do you think I should draw the Zootopia Chronicles comic?
