Illun has started a donation pool!

I've been commissioning art of Wanda and Terra all over the place, and I will continue to do so whether you donate or not. But it might be more if people choose to donate.

Wanda and Terra are friends with Zero Confidence (ZeroConfidence), and they just met a new friend Link (Link-Hayashi) so some of their adventures will be with these folks.

I don't promise this will go towards a specific transformation, only that Wanda and/or Terra will be in the commissions this helps with. If you want something specific, send me a note instead of donating and I will talk with you and work out all the details.

Everyone else has one, so I can't feel guilty putting out a jar too. ;)

You must be logged in to donate.

Yes, a game that uses the likeness of pre-existing treats without paying a dime to those long-dead people who created them has trademarked the word "candy", which dates back to the 13th century. The US Patent and Trademark Office has allowed what should have been instantly rejected bullshit get to the final phase, and the arrogant bastard trademarking the word has already started sending out notices to everyone else who has "candy" in the name of a game app: newsfeed.time.com/2014/01/21/c…

Making it worse, the trademark is open-ended. They have a line of real candy they've recently released, and this can be applied to damned near anything.

There are 30 days for people with claim to the name to challenge it, and there is a final review at the end of that, so this insane bullshit isn't quite real yet, but it should never have gotten this far. Something has been broken for years at the US Patent and Trademark Office, as demonstrated by Apple, Samsung and others patenting very elementary things that entirely predate both companies and are FAR too low-level to meet the legal requirements of a patent. This is far too common a word to have ever been considered for a trademark, and the first time Candy Crush tries to sue someone with enough money to sit through a court battle, they will be crushed and lose the trademark. But that doesn't help all the other developers along the way. The argument that it was needed to prevent "Candy X" clones of their product is false, as that is already covered under existing trademark law.

I'm a programmer with some Photoshop experience who occasionally likes to write. I'm also big on commissioning things I want to see drawn. About half of what I've commissioned here is in my Favorites section, the rest were either taken down by idiot moderators (no rule violation), or were never posted on DA.

My interests here are shrinking and full transformation (ie, vampires, lycanthropes and the like don't qualify).

Also, to those commenting - If it's llama-related, you don't need to thank me, giving a llama is thanks enough. Going forward, I will also hide comments with excessive or rapid animation. I don't want my DA page to look like a MySpace page, sorry.

I will also specifically NEVER donate to people who post here asking for donations. You will be reported for spam. Use the donate box on your own lookup and don't spam anymore.


Finally - Devwatch and Favorites should be for what you want to hear about and share, so I don't trade them. Everyone I watch is someone I either like their artwork or like them as a person. Every favorite is artwork I liked a LOT. There are plenty out there that I like, but did not favorite.

Work, new house stuff, cosplay, and falling on ice. You know, the usual. :)
Glad to hear from you, I saw your message from yesterday about OppositeWorlds about 20 minutes ago and was thinking about saying hello.

Yeah; I've been thinking about reconnecting with some old friends.  Possibly getting back into a little Rping.  My stomach issues keep me at home a lot, so I've been trying to find some ways to pass time and all.  Plus, I thought about you the other day and decided to see how you were.
