There was a very specific reason I didn't want people reposting my pictures on Tumblr and other various parts of the web. This is the reason why:

Here is my sculpture of 'Midnight' Contortionist Study from my website:

www.jyoung-studio.com/midnight…

Now, have a look at this:

www.moeyo.com/article/73525

This is now the fifth person this week to bring this to my attention, and as you can clearly see, they even went as far as copying the arm and leg bands. This is the reason I didn't want people reposting. Because in the back of my mind, I just KNEW something like this was eventually going to happen. I have since had time to calm down and think logically. But whats really vexing, is i just know that somewhere down the line, some ass-hat is going to accuse ME of stealing MY OWN f*cking art. (pardon my language. Facepalm )

I have since calmed down, and now I see that I have to do the exact opposite; instead of trying to hide and protect my Fine Art (which is absolutely sacred to me, btw, and in another post, I will share the story of why) but i see now that instead of trying to protect it from unsavory individuals and scrub it from the internet, I must now do the exact opposite; I must post it all over tumblr, and all over the internet. Because if i don't, they'll end up owning it.

So here's my question for people who have tumblr accounts: If you post your art on tumblr, and you dont like the way someone is reposting it, if you dont like the way they are trying to demean it, do you have the ability to 'break' the reblog, and ultimately block them?
And if you dont like the comments people are posting, do you have the ability to remove said comment, and block them?

Let me tell you honestly, that fundamentally, I DON'T like sites like tumblr. the reason? Other than the obvious, theres another reason; a while back ago, a friend talked me into joining a site called fetlife.com. And i will say, i absolutely love the friends ive made since at events like Pride and Folsom Street Fair, what absolutely SICKENS me, is that people were downloading their personal pictures (inwhich they were nude) and posted them all over tumblr. Then another a**hole downloads it, reposts it, and then before you know it, what was private, spiritual, and utterly sacred to you, is now all over the internet. It truly SICKENED me.

But in anycase, I see now that im going to have to join tumblr with my own account, instead of 'protecting & hiding it', otherwise, because if I dont, they'll end up owning it. Im going to do this sometime next week, after ive had time to add the web address, my logo, and copyright notices to the pictures. Right now im rushing once again to get another wholesale order filled. And well, let me end this on a happy note: that's the good news! :shuffelin:  this monolithmodels project, is definitely working out. :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin: all the hard work, and relentless pursuit, is clearly building towards one inevitable goal, on the not too distant horrizon, our very own spin-casting shop. :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin:  so stay in touch for that, if youre interested. :happybounce:


No, im not going to let this get me down, if anything it makes me even more determined, even more dedicated to hold true to my core principles, and to work even harder. But i will say, it is very infuriating. But people like this, clearly have neither respect, morals, nor values. And theres a whole world out there full of them.Facepalm  And no, i am not unique, in the time that ive been on this site, Ive seen this happen to others as well.

So, long story short, ill join tumblr next week, after ive had the chance to get everything done that needs to be done, come back with a link. Who knows, maybe i might actually like it. :shrug: maybe ill even re-upload all my fine art under another ID. Ashamed 
*3/13/16 UPDATE:

okay, so i bought it!!!! :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin:

I asked around some more on other forums, drew a consensus from what people were saying on make/model, did more homework (yeeea, im a D&D geek remember, we like doing our homework :lol: ) and based on what everyone has been saying, i decided to get it. Its being shipped from a city called Riverside, CA down there in zombielan,eeeer... I mean L.A. :lmao:
im guessing in about a week or so, i should have it! :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin:

Hopefully, this will make a difference, sound wise/comfort wise, as seeing how im pressure-casting almost daily now.

:shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin:

zo.

next, lets talk about that spin-casting gear. :happybounce: Woohooooo!

time to do more research/homework.EVIL Laughter!

Live long and prosper. :meditation:


----------------------------------------------------------------
So, pressure-casting resin in pressure pots:

Anyone here that does pressure-casting, have a dental air-compressor?

if so, how 'quiet' is it? the one im looking into is priced at $500.00, and has a dBA rating of 49. which is described as 'quiet operation'. so, how 'quiet' is it actually?

looking into buying a dental air-compressor, as seeing hows im going to be doing pressure casting on an almost daily basis now, and the one i have (which is a Husky btw) has a dBA rating of 78.5 which, isnt as loud as some of the others, but its still kinda noisy. :shifty:

mkay, :shifty: yada yada yada, so ends another day of sun up to sun down work, live long and prosper. :meditation:



keep those d20's rolling. :meditation:
was a band, that i was really into back in college. their music was very melodramatic. I existed somewhere between Sisters of Mercy & My Bloody Valentine. :shifty: thats who i was. that was before i even knew what 'bi-polar disorder' even was.

And as of late, ive decided, its time to go back to being that person. :meditation:

Never let them harden you. Always sit beneath your own Banyan Tree. And the greatest revenge? Is to not become them.

my name is Jami, and I approve this message. :meditation:


Anyhoo, 4 out of 5 dentists recommend brushing your teeth!  things are moving right along, soon its going to be time to completely overhaul the www.monolithmodels.com site. people are saying its not 'mobile friendly'. not sure what that means, :shrug: but its something that needs to be addressed.

so um, does anyone have a weebly online checkout account?

here's the question:

Does weebly have whats called a 'guest checkout'?

guest-checkout' means you dont have to sign up, or create an account if you want to buy something, you just enter an email address and the payment information for a 'one time sale'.

may also have to soon think about having the site translated into different languages too. :shifty:

in other news, i binged watched season 1 of 'Cloud 9' on hulu yesterday (blew everything off) if you havnt seen it, i wont disclose any spoilers, all ill say is the season finale left a very lasting impression. which reminds us, why unions and worker's rights are so important in the first place.Disbelief  The character 'Cheyenne' reminds me of Rinzin. :glomp: one of those people whos aura shines so brightly.

mkay, thats enough lovin for today. Huggle! 



time to go watch some zombie movies now. :nana:


VV013-c Kiss of Carmilla
VV013-c, there are actually five versions of this same design, one where the coffin is propped up vertically, one where its horizontal, and even one where its two twins standing without the coffins. It proved so popular, that i even did a similar design(s) on the 54mm scale.
Interestingly enough, i actually had this idea all the way back in jewelry class in art college, it was originally designed as a ring cast in silver, with a latch on the coffin lid. Then i sold it, and it was gone forever. (unfortunately at the time, i did not know how to make vulcanized molds for wax injection, and the so-called 'professional' 'professor', didn't know her A$$ from a hole in the ground.Facepalm )


*STOP*


A little bit of anger just slipped out. :meditation: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4...


mkay, back to my *zen* state again. :meditation:

in anycase, im thinking im also going to re-visit that original idea again in pewter, once we have our own spin-casting shop (which at this point, is destiny now :shuffelin: ) but for the time being they exist as minis.

so im back into horror movie mode again. :shifty: A lot of the inspiration came from artsy, film-noir, independent movies from the late '60's-70's. Jean Rollins, Les Frissons Des Vampires, Grass Labyrinth, to name a few. Although lacking in budget, i was quite drawn to the dark, forlorn, visually striking, cinematography. In a way i think a lot of the Full Moon Productions movies carry on this tradition.

Recuperating now from that last wholesale order, back on my feet again, each day is now proving a sun up, to sun down experience.

over 80 designs, now marching towards 100.:shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin:


its all being built from the ground up. EVIL Laughter!

1/35 scale, worked in castaline, so this one i might have rushed thru- now that i look at it, thinking i probably could have dialed up the gore factor on his blown off arm, with some more bloody flesh dangling from the stump. rofl

Ill have to come back to it later, rushing now to finish up the last 3 zombies, ending with the general so i can then divide them up and make them mix-n-match modular, then its on to some Soviet Ape soldiers. :shifty:

For the Wolf Soldats, I think im going to go olde-skool, Howling from the '80's: www.chud.com/wp-content/upload… :shifty:


yup. thats what imma gonna do. :shifty:

So what happened to your contortionist statues? They were a beauty to see.

Beautiful pieces I'd love to see your portfolio sometime on a site that's a bit better than DA. I had to search for several minutes to find your art because it was being tossed around Tumblr with no artist credit and I'm glad I did find you, you deserve the credit and praise for that piece.
