The top is the sketches I sent the buyer to choose from. They originally commissioned me for one piece, but decided they wanted a second one and chose #3 for flat color and #5 for full color.
Bottom is a detail shot (100% zoom). I love their faces in that one.
Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to. I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.
The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.
If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!
Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.
We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.
Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.
oh so it wasn’t at all completely unreasonable of me to think they actually stole my wonderbolts hoodie concept. lol
My original art/post during first season run:
hot topic’s hoodie:
oh well, all the more reason I don’t buy shit there.
Please don’t allow Hot Topic to cash in on MSPA.
