Fan Art and Fanfics Will Not Get You A Disney Lucasfilm Star Wars Contract

(Originally posted on Tumblr 2018)

Your work will go unread, ignored and unseen. No one will steal your work to get famous because they “stole your idea” and presented it to Disney Lucasfilm.

No one will admire your old work.

Employees of Disney Lucasfilm do not look at work and they cannot even share their own work because it cannot be made public.

You are delusional if you think your idea supersedes the legally contracted ideas Disney Lucasfilm has that is out in the open or their non-disclosure agreements and in their bank vaults.

Stop being a narcissist.

As far as Disney Lucasfilm cares about your art or fanfic, it is theirs for the taking. They own the intellectual property, the copyrights and the trademarks on all images, subject-matter, and stories with the derivatives of the said work.

They also have the advertising and marketing strategies that far exceeds yours.

When Disney wants new ideas and polished ideas, they hire the best of the best through professional networks. Because they can. It is based on the collegiality of the work environment and the trust to do the job.

Your nasty comments and hate messaging are only taken into account when they decide to refer back to social media.

It does not matter about how many work hours you have put in, how hard you worked, or how expensive it cost you to create your said piece. It is your mentality that is foul when you failed to do your work for free out of sheer enjoyment. Then you demand remuneration for it from Disney Lucasfilm.

Disney has done their business for over 100 years. You are lucky they don’t sue you for racketeering and bog you down in court. Do you have lawyers that can go against Disney Corporate?

You are lucky they don’t send you a cease and desist order. There are several cases of Lucasfilm doing just that. Especially to presumptuous fan groups.

Lately, Disney Lucasfilm has relaxed its measures with the advent of social media. But you had better believe they will protect all their assets. Keep testing them.

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 is uninterested in discussing the corporate machinations with Tumblr users, anymore.

Good luck on your efforts.

Thrawn needed provisions from a developed, first world planet different from the isolated planet lost in the Unknown Regions for any sentient society. But not one directly affiliated with the Empire or the rumors he’s heard, First Order. He could procure weaponry, ships and component parts.

But what he could do is reconnect on Batuu with any Mandalorians. He found…

Dear Tumblr,

All those posts you see of young artists charging $3, $6, $10 for a drawing because they need help? That’s fucking exploitation, and fuck you if you think it’s reasonable or a “good deal" to pay nickels and dimes to squeeze a full-color original drawing out of some talented, hardworking kid because things are tight, and they can’t afford their textbooks. Or food. They sure as hell can’t afford to make you art for $6.

Instead, stop. And ask them where you can donate. If you can afford a $6 drawing, then you can afford to spend $6 simply to help someone. You don’t need internal organs as payment.

Don’t allow young artists to be exploited.

this and this some more.

I’d go one step further and say: Offer to pay them decent Illustration wages instead if you still want a drawing, say around $20/hour. That way not only will you blow their socks off with your kindness and respect for their abilities, but you will also endow them with a sense of worth that they’re probably hurting for after being surrounded by the sort that makes them feel like their services are so worthless.

Illustration is a professional skill requiring years of training and dedication, regardless if there’s a school involved. If you enjoy that artist’s work and want to help them out, either donate like suggested above or else pay them what their work is worth and pass on the word.

Basically!

And if someone claims something that took you an hour to draw isn’t worth at least around $10 per hour of work, dont listen to their bullying. To the non-artist, its hard to see the worth in art especially if they didn’t put 10, 5, 2 or even 1 years of solid effort to get to the level of artistic ability there are today.

If the person complaining is still unhappy with the price despite that reasoning? Well let THEM make their own drawing themselves and spend the $10 elsewhere. GL to them getting the level of artistry you have without those years of experience they put behind them!

Honestly, I make designs for people for free, but someone offered me $20 for one once and I nearly cried.

PLEASE TIP ARTISTS. 

ESPECIALLY IF YOU THINK THEY ARE UNDERCHARGING.

We pay our artists. We’ll do exchanges for Amazon items requested if we can afford it. It won’t be all the time, but we’ve been paying fair and commensurate. There are at least 2-3 artists we make requests. One artist we must save for, but worth it. Ideas need concept art. And we promote on all our sites.
