Fan art isn't copying other peoples drawings.
Fan art is drawing characters which people have already made.

Jesus, what's with you?

There's a difference.

If fan art is drawing characters which artists have already made, and "copying" isn't, then exactly what is fan art?

I can see where you're going with this, you think it's plagiarism because it has certain features that are in great resemblance to the original artist's work. That would be called derivative work, but because parts of the drawing are changed and more will be changed, it's not plagiarism.

But IT IS fan art.
However, you do have some points.
So I will respectfully credit the original work's author.

You forget however,

But, I plan to add different elements 'n' stuff to it once I scan it. So there will bea noticeable difference.
Isn't that the equivalent of copying and pasting a wikipedia article, changing a few words, and then submitting it as an essay?

That's irrelevant. But even then, that wouldn't be called plagiarism. Because it isn't an exact copy.

It pretty much is.

HA, WHY NOT?!

Yep, I ended up panicking and ordering BL 3 mere hours before stock orders were cancelled.

On that note, due to goddamned Canadian Thanksgiving at the beginning of this week, my final Geneon order won't arrive until next week.

damn. I'll see if I can.

You can still order it straight from the animation studio that produced the series, they have their own eBay store.

They've got every volume (as well as the LE art box version of volume one) available for an okay price with free shippping.

Scientology is the worst fucking "religion" ever. damn them. Is there even a such thing as copyrighted material when it comes to religion? Are walking on water or parting the Red Sea registered trademarks? hmm? I don't think so.

Yeah, just goes to show you why the last thing the religious world needs is a business like Scientology....

Oh well, I'm hoping Funimation will win a legal battle/replace the offending episode with an unaired one/fucking do something so we can have our Shin-chan fix before the end of the year...

I've finally gotten The Anime Network, and it's becoming my favorite channel, despite apparently mixing up "Peacemaker" and "Wild Arms: Twilight Venom" on their schedule.
In other news, I upgraded my cell phone, switching to Virgin Mobile for the Kyocera Slider Sonic (the only prepaid music phone I could find on the internet). To those select few who have my Verizon Wireless phone number, it's only good until the end of the month.

Currently in the middle of NS /A/ meeting three.

Due to undelivered orders and a lost copy of Scrapped Princess, the only actual anime we'll likely be watching today is four episodes of Azumanga Daioh.

However, we did have a few videogame tournaments thus far (Guilty Gear, Smash Bros., Guitar Hero) and struggled to endure all of AMV Hell 4 (possibly the most unfunny thing any of us have ever viewed).

Well, atleast it won't suck. Also, force them to watch Black Lagoon. And JJBA, SUBBED NOT DUBBED!

Win.

ALL AMVs FUCKING SUCK AND THEY DESERVE TO DIE OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Well, I went to ABSound in hopes to find The Great Annihilator. They didn't have it, which makes me call "Jew" on the entire city of Langley for having shit selection in music. I tried looking for anime DVDs but ABSound doesn't have shit. I left, and decided to go to chapters, but not for manga (shock). I was actually looking for a real book. However, since I Am America (And So Can You) by God himself (AKA Stephen Colbert), was out of my price range, I decided to go for I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell by Tucker Max; my second choice. Not wanting any manga I bought it and left. So, sup?

But no one other than Shane would watch it.

You do realise that it's possible to draw an already made character in a position or situation not identical or almost identical to an already done picture that you're using as the basis of a picture, right?

That's fan art.

Okay, it doesn't matter whether it's actually known as plagiarism or not.

Unless you specifically say to your teacher "I copied this picture off of this exact frame in this book", then it can be considered stealing art.

That's irrelevant. But even then, that wouldn't be called plagiarism. Because it isn't an exact copy.

I don't think you understand what the word 'plagiarism' means.
Plagiarism
Plagiarism involves using the work of another person and presenting it as one's own. Any of the following acts constitutes plagiarism unless the source of each quotation or piece of borrowed material is clearly acknowledged:

* Copying out part(s) of any document or audio-visual material (including computer based material);

Dio and Hol Horse have good voices, but the rest of the cast ranges from subpar (Jotaro, Kakyoin) to terrible (Joseph, Avdol, Polnareff, Vanilla Ice).

The dub was a horrid disappointment, the cast read like a list of the most overused and crappy VAs ever.

Michelle fucking Ruff as Yuki? Jesus Christ.
Crispin "I can only do Alucard" Freeman as Kyon? Seriously, I was waiting for Paladin Anderson to just burst through the fucking door and start rumblin' with him.
Wendee "way too old to play teenagers" Lee as Haruhi? *Hangs self*.

Anywho, how are you guys? Other than Black lagoon have you guys watched any new animes?

No, I don't have the time, money or resources for much new. Not to mention there's nothing on TV that I have yet to see/want to see.

I'm just finishing old anime I have lying around or periodically get for bargain prices/as gifts (picking away at long running stuff like Ranma and Detective Conan bit by bit now). I own like 60+ anime DVDs and at least 20 of them have never been watched, so I don't even really have a need nor a desire for new stuff at the moment.

Speaking of which, an NS /A/ member gave me their copy of Funimation's new Slayers boxset, so I'll likely get around to watching more than the first five, eleven to thirteen and the final three episodes of the show.

Obvious sarcasm does not equal anger. Kuro pointed out my Anime Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and how I normally obsess ALOT over particular anime shows like it's going out of style. Or if it's the cure for AIDs. It's really funny.

Seconded, I merely linked the video because a friend of mine emailed it to me this morning thinking it was funny and it was still in my memory.


Thus it thinks unfunny things are funny.

So if it said a newgrounds fad like 'do a barrel roll' then newgrounds would become unfunny?

That's not a Newgrounds fad.

And if it said it, it'd be considered a reference to Starfox rather than to 4chan.

And I said it thinks unfunny things are funny, I never said it thinks funny things are unfunny (though "do a barrel roll" isn't funny anyway).

Just watched ouran high school host club. Man, it was better then I thought it would be, I thought the whole series would just be the hosts being gay for each other.

Right now I can't think of a decent anime to watch. Anything along the lines of horror or comedy anyone can recommend for me?

I just got a newly obtained copy of Black Lagoon Volume 1; Limited Edition from HMV. This Limited Edition Purchase includes an Extra feature DVD, and a SteelBook collector's case; which can hold All three DVDs of Black Lagoon season 1 plus the Bonus DVD. However, when I woke up this morning, I had already planned to go buy it, yet need an extra 20. My parents had already left to go to my Grandfather's place and help sell his stuff in a yard sale. I checked online to see when the mall, which the HMV is located is open. It was 9: 30 AM at the time, and I had until 11 until it opens. Fucking great. I read my Tucker Max book, fapped a bit, than when it got to 12, I left.

Ofcourse, I had to go to my bank to get a bit of cash. Let me explain; I have a 30 dollar limit on my card, and being a lazy bastard and not getting it taken off, i had to go get another 20 for this purchase. The limited edition cost 37. However, My bank was on the other side of the city, and therefore I had to walk there, and than another 30 minutes to my mall. Fucking brutal. Anyways, after walking, listening to my tunes, and getting to HMV and I was happy. I was paranoid enough to think my town actually had otakus that heard of Black Lagoon, and so i was relieved to see my Limited edition. I took it, bought it and went to the food court.

I decided to get KFC. Not a smart decision as I found out. Not because people (hippies... though they're not really people) bitch about the treatment of the chickens, because I could give a rats ass about how KFC tortures chickens. If they torture them tender enough, and as long as they're not doing the torture in Guantanamo Bay, I'm happy. This was only bad because afterwards I felt dazed, and had a pain in my sides. Than, i saw something of horror. Two emos, one cosplaying as a character from Naruto. The one in the cosplay was Asian, and the other one was fat, and wearing a god damn tophat. Fuck these kind of people. I don't know who this person was cosplaying, I guess it was Asuma Sarutobi, the only truly awesome character in Naruto... WHO FUCKING DIES. Nice fanservice. Why Asuma is awesome? His Seiyu J%u016Br%u014Dta Kosugi played fucking Jotaro Kujo, and references JoJo in Naruto. Now, I considered asking them this but It would end up with me being a total prick, questioning there taste in anime, and etc in a Tucker Max fashion. But didn't. If I did it would've gone like this:

Me: "Hello, I couldn't help wondering what Naruto character are you? Asuma Sarutobi?"
AznEmo [Assuming she/he (I couldn't tell) said yes]: "Uh huh, cool you like Naruto?"
Me: "Fuck no. Anyone with a sense of taste would say the same. I only point this out because of Asuma's Seiyu, J%u016Br%u014Dta Kosugi. God, how anyone can watch an episode of that fagfest is beyond me."
FatEmo: "Fuck yuoz you bicth watz do you know abut Naruto or anime?"
Me: "Am I talking to you you fat cow, and I know alot more about anime than anyone in this shithole town, and even BC. Why? Because I have taste in anime."

Pulls out newly copy of Black Lagoon

Me: "Now this is a fucking anime. And totally explains why Pirates fucking rape Ninjas."
AznEmo: "Black Lagoon? A'int that a movie. Whateva, I never heard of it, so don't be an ass."
Me: "WATCH IT NOW YOU TASTELESS BITCH. SEINEN>SHITTY SHONEN DOGSHIT. All shonen anime/manga is harsh shit compared to Shojo anime/manga, and just failfaggot monkey cum compared to Josei/Seinen anime."
AznEmo: "Oh yea I dun't no abut that since I never herd of the fucking shit your talking abut."
Me: "YOUR OPINION IS IRRELEVANT, MY WORD IS LAW!"
FatEmo: "Nazi fucking elitest asshole with faggot views go fuick your mother"
Me: "IT STOPS TALKING TO IT'S INTELLECTUAL SUPERIOR OR IT GETS THE HOSE!"
Me: "What? daddy didn't love you so you stuffed your fat fucking face with king-dons, and slit your wrists to a bunch of homosexuals who can't write music worth shit."
AznEmo and FatEmo: "FUCK YOU!"

Ofcourse, this never happened, and the ending would be unpreticible; either they walk away, or they hit me, or run off crying. Either way, doesn't matter. I just told that for pure entertainment. Complete falsities. Why I didn't is simple: I'm not Tucker Max. Tucker would usually have a friend along with him to make sure he wouldn't get his ass kicked in, whereas I didn't, and talking to a couple of Emos would be a fucking waste of my precious time. With that said; I left the mall, and went home.

END OF MY AMAZING DAY!
