|ratwings||09:50 pm - Two rejections in one ticket...|
I can't believe I got two rejections on one ticket! *wah* One of them was caused by quite a bit of stupidity on my part... I really can't believe I didn't rememebr the rules properly... I wanted to post a painting I did for a friend. It's a handsome asian elf samurai type guy, with a bow, and a phoenix in the background. There is also this inside joke between my friend and I, because she's obsessed with this Chinese singer named Jay Chou. Yeah... the painting is *sorta* based off of Jay Chou, who *is* a celebrity. But honestly, the resemblance is miniscule and I would bet my rats that if I hadn't said anything in the description, no one would have recognized him. I just made him look like your generic handsome anime-ish guy. And now I've blown my chances of ever posting this picture, which I happen to quite like.
The other rejection is a bit more puzzling... it's a re-upload from before the crash. Which means that yes, it was accepted before. It's a firelizard, so it's Anne McCaffrey fan art. I was very careful in my description to explain all that, basically giving a flippin encyclopedia entry on Anne McCaffrey and her brilliant works. BUT apparently I did not put in the proper little (R) thigy... you know what I mean, the little R inside the circle. ACK!!! I am so computer illiterate, I have no idea how to make one of those. The mod suggested copying the symbol from the rules page. I will try it, of course, but I'm kinda sad that I'm gonna have to wait like.... another month or two before this drawing is actually published. (I don't believe in single picture tickets... I like to save 'em up for a bit so I have a few...because I know i'll be in the middle of the queue when i have something new i want to upload).
This really stinks.
Current Mood: sad
Re: I love Elfwood but...
No, because he never played that role. In fanart you're not depicting the actor, you're depicting a character that happened to be played by that actor. If said actor never actually had that role, it's considered celebrity art, you just happened to dress him up funny.
Sarah Michelle Gellar as herself - not okay, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy - okay, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Galadriel or whatever - not okay.
And I have no clue where "musical fantasy characters" that some musicians have created of themselves fit in. AFAIK there's no official word on it, as it has never come up...
"No, because he never played that role."
That makes sense. Must be tricky telling SMG from Buffy though, I guess it's like the "borderline" pictures, you'd have to put something in the picture that is obviously from the show (like a stabbity wooden stake).
RE:"musical fantasy characters" These are probably so few and far between that it's probably easier to just say no to any of them. Lord knows Mods already have enough stuff to do without having to figure out one more thing.
