So if you  didn't know if bon

So if you  didn't know if bon was talking about you, why did you make a thread sounding like she was? It probably isn't even you she's is referring to. I just don't see how it involved you, in a nice way said of course.  TI just want to know why You thought bon was meaning you? Now I'm really wondering what in the world is going on. Bon shouldn't have made a thread like that, even if it was a bad inside joke with others.  And I know it's been mentioned but it should have been waited apon before announcing this thread. 

 

To Everyone:

You have to be careful how stuff comes across to people and even more extra careful on the internet because here, anything and everything, if not extremely stressed In a specific attitude and meaning direction, can be taken as anything and as anyway. This usually ends up a Long and hurtful road.

Are you confusing one of my posts with the OP? Because the OP seems sure it was about them to me. It was me an outsider who couldn't make a definitive comment but didn't feel this was a subject wise for people to bandwagon on.

I don't know what spesificly OP stands for in this context but I do know it is another name for the maker of a thread. I use it when I'm too lazy to open another tab to copy down the person's name every time I make a post. (I have a very short term memory for names if I don't know the person well)

 

OP in rollplaying however means over powered so it can mean something else in another context. OC means origanal charicter but most people use it for fan charicters too. It's kind of become a general term even though FC (Fan Charicter) is more accurate in most cases.

 

 

The reason I asked if you confused me for them is because I don't see where they said they weren't sure it was at them but I did talk about not knowing for sure what was going on so I wondered if you confused our posts.

A wild post appeared!!!

I was wondering what that thread was about...

I'm not sure whether Rebell is Archery or not. If they are, they are taking advantage of many, nice, open minded people. If they are not, then Rebell is being ridiculed and picked on for no reason. All they did was join the forums and everyone starts calling them a liar, a thief which is hardly fair. And quite frankly, there is evidence for both sides of the argument. However, I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and unless anyone has cold, hard evidence to place in front of me, everyone else should do it to. Treat Rebell like the person they are, not the person you think they are. Anyways, this is. Excusing myself from the conversation. I just needed to out this out there.

Wolf

 Art was done by Fireflash

Wolf is my in-game character. Her full name is 'Wolf and Star'. She takes on my own personality, which is quite similar to that of Lynx. During quests, Wolf loves to muck around and try to break the system by utilizing glitches- just for laughs, but she always produces reliable results. She is a fair Viking and she never uses glitches for her own personal gain. Some of my profile info will be listed below:.............

Characters:

 

 

 

 

Lynx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

Lynx is bold and loud. She is like Luna Lovegood in the sense that she is rather... odd. Loud, shameless and weird. She is more animal-like than human. Lynx enjoys being flashy, showing off her skills. Once she sets her mind to something, she is naturally good at it. The problem is that she loses focus easy and doesn't like setting herself to standards. She craves adventure and can grow bored easily. She is particularly fast on her feet but has low stamina levels. She is strong and tall for her age. Lynx is stubborn and laid-back most of the time. She does not like to follow orders. Some of her skills include: being double jointed, the ability to be able to climb almost any surface, very good at mimicking animal sounds and is EXTREMELY good at sneaking around. However, there is a side to Lynx that she does not show very often. She is very lazy and selfish at times, mainly because she lacks compassion towards humankind, caring more about dragons and animals more so than humans. This tendency causes her to be merciless in the face of battle.

 

 

..............................Lyra

 .....................Art was done by Marg The Loony and Chameishida

Lyra is very sheltered and shy. She suppressed her emotion and looks down on those who do are emotional. Lyra can be rudely sarcastic at times and accidentally offend someone. Don't expect a public display of remorse. This does not mean she is feelingless though, she feels emotion, but, she is just very insecure about it. She does not like showing weakness or personal attachment, more insecurity, and less sociopathy. Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. Lyra is willing to do anything to ensure her well being, and the well being of her mother. Which could be a weakness. She values her self-preservation. She usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face, which sunburns easily and long hair.

 

 

 

Nyx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

One of Nyx's most defining traits is her brash and sarcastic attitude towards everything that breathes. She is the type of girl who does not have to do much to stand apart from the crowd. However, Nyx is no way an extrovert, the reason why she puts herself in social situations is purely one of two reasons, the first one being is that she wants to go people watching. Where she sits in some corner and watches people, how they react and their social cues. She just observes them, untangles their motives and finds their interests. The second reason is that she wants to show up the competition, along with being stubborn, Nyx is a show-off. The problem is, natural talent can only get you so far. Because of her years from people watching, she has become very keen on observations. Smarter than the average person, she is able to look at any given Viking and deduce a thing or two about them. Sort of like Sherlock Holmes but not nearly as skilled. With her great intelligence, comes social anxiety. Nyx buried this under layers of brashness but, this insecurity can be sorted out by the way she avoids social and emotional get-togethers. Due to her inability to express her social anxiety, Nyx finds herself at a lack of friends. She usually plays this off as her not wanting any friends but sometimes, when a dragon is your only friend, you can get lonely. The result, she makes a lot of enemies. Usually because of her showoff-ness and Brash attitude, and sarcasm. In reality, Nyx wants some friends, but she sees this as a weakness and as part of her insecurities which she buries deep inside of her and does not let anyone see. She's not edgy, she's just misguided.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aeryn Nyght

 Art was done by Tosilohi

Aeryn also has a sense of show-off-ness, an over-the-top, dramatic character. She takes any given situation, brandishes it with a flare of sarcasm and performs, drawing attention to herself all the while managing to act edgy or sweet, or however she wanted to be perceived. This need of hers to put on a show made her invaluable to the man while she was on his side. Like the theatre kid she should be, Aeryn has expertly crafted this skill of taking on different personas, and she isn't afraid to add in some cliche drama to her dialogue and actions. Constantly referencing pop-culture, Aeryn is interesting, but the tiring person to be around. The problem with her extroverted, boldness is that few get to witness the actual Aeryn, not one of her many characters. In a sense, it is quite similar to the multifaceted personality disorder, only, Aeryn recognizes her many personas. She chooses not to show anyone her true colors due to some insecurities. These different personalities are the shields she has put up for emotional protection. With Aeryn, you never know if her reactions are genuine or just part of the show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gail Cyrek

 Art was done by Katarile

Gail is very softspoken. She does not like attracting much attention as people have a tendency to stare. She is very insecure about her face and does her best to conceal it. She gets very annoyed if someone asks about it. However, with this silence comes the ability to listen. She observes the world around her and is able to spot even the tiniest of details. This silent brilliance has made her a stellar judge of character. She reads body language very well and has a certain flare of stubbornness about her. Still, she is very dark. Generally, when she speaks, most people cannot hear what she says, which is probably a good thing because what she does say is usually pretty dark or gory. She often says random and slightly disturbing things and speaks extremely softly anyone can barely hear her. Gail seems to be pretty timid but is generally ruthless. She is a bit of a pyromaniac and will do almost anything to get her way.

That's real nice and all, but does this mean I should threat Rebell as a carbon copy of Archer, rather than just Archer?

I wouldn't get frustrated at you for something like this. It's up to you to make a judgment! The matter has been talked about before and evidence has been posted before iirc. If you don't think it's sufficient, that's fine, don't worry about it.

Just don't tell me to pretend that they're different people is all :)

Oh sorry, didn't know the concept of context is still a bit foreign to you.

If she's another person, I'll treat her like a carbon copy or Archer, because she's literally the same type of person with the same personality, traits, style and everything else. Only the name's different.

I suppose that makes sense, but it's pretty rude.

You won't treat Rebell like a different person because he/she's so similar to someone else? Everyone is unique, and should be treated as such.

You're missing my point here.

They're  carbon copies to me. They're not just similar. So even if Rebell turns out to be someone else (she hasn't even attempted to convince anyone so far) she'll still have the exact same personality, interests, behaviour, traits and general vibe Archer has. 

 

One can't really treat identical things as if they were different; that would be disingenuous.

I'm not asking you to repeat anything. And you'd be surprised the boundaries of what I understand. And no, I don't have any materialistic things to show for it, but I have so much more.

This is not a matter of agreeing or disagreeing. This is a matter of harrasment on numerous occasions, which is against the forum rules, and, let's forget the forum rules for a moment, is incredibly rude!

So you're also breaking forum rules? You've badly harrassed people plenty times on these forums. Should I make a compilation of all your nice receipts and anti-tolerance rhetoric and PM those to an admin, or was your harrassment justified because it's only okay if you do it?

 

Also Rebell made this thread for discussion and possible drama. She would have left it at a PM if she wasn't.

Wutend vs Rebell: The Finale

So to clear up the confusion of why I have accused Rebell of scamming me for art:

 

Last week, on the 23rd of November, Rebell asked to make an art trade with me through Discord, and I accepted. For the first few hours of the trade, we exchanged information and ideas, and showed WIP’s of our work to confirm that the designs were good.

My first suspicion of something being not quite right was the fact that the character I was given to draw had basically no build to them- a name and an appearance, no set personality (even allowing me to make one up for Rebell), and a backstory based off one of my fanfic plots (Reign of the Deep Queen). I brushed this off, figuring that maybe she wanted to visualise the character before proceeding with more detailed information, and the backstory was a temporary and loose outline of what was being considered.

https://i.imgur.com/CaZLNjV.png

https://i.imgur.com/joRxYUv.png

A few hours later, Rebell posted a second WIP to check how it was going. She later claimed this image to be the completed artwork on my callout thread which included my completed piece that would have been given to her instead, had the art trade gone through.

https://i.imgur.com/s6p0qXy.png

This is not what I would call completed work. It is a rough outline with the base colour underneath, and several other artists on the Discord server agreed with me. Not only that, but it isn’t even original work- when compared to the RoB Catastrophic Quaken artwork, there are extreme similarities that cannot be ignored. This violates the terms of an art trade; that original work is given, with effort put into the piece.

Catastrophic Quaken - NBG

This was the last message I received from Rebell, as I sent 3 different versions of the same WIP, restarted the design, and sent 4 progress images of the second design. These messages were sent over two days (the 24th and 25th) until I noted her silence to the Discord regarding the art trade. People then alerted me to the fact that Rebell is yet another identity of infamously bad art-trader Archery and Dragons, and after some fact-checking and browsing, could safely confirm to at least myself that this was (annoyingly) true.

Without this information I would have waited a few more days before taking action, but I have had past experience with Archer and was fed up of this whole deal.

This past experience is still ongoing as an art trade that has gone incomplete for a little over 2 MONTHS. The story is rather similar to Rebells; a simplistic Night Fury with minimal personality (given at least). From the first day of the trade with Archer (the 3rd of September), we had basically everything sorted out, and my end was completed and submitted by the 8th, with things being double-checked in between. Due to the nature of my work, I was unable to supply progress images. She denied any progress images or updates on her progress during its creation (assuming it was actually done), and even offered an edit as substitute at one point.

Archer took 5 days to respond to the artwork, and only after I bumped the PM thread and asked her about what she thought. Her last update to the trade was on the 7th of November, saying that it was done and she just needed to get home to send it. I bumped the thread 15 days later, on the 22nd, and I have received no reply since then.

 

Since I doubt people will be bothered or willing to check for themselves that these users are the same person, I’ll give a rundown of what I have.

This is a delightful little thread that gave the identities away almost instantly. Rebell used the Imgur account Archery and Dragons to upload an image, despite the fact that you don’t need an account to use Imgur to host images online, there are plenty of other image hosting sites, and that the excuse of “my parents won’t let me make my own” is far from plausible.

 

Identical art styles that have been brushed off as teachings from both users. However, this does not suffice to explain the extreme similarities, for artistic styles are unique. While people can influence others styles, unless you go out of your way to trace and/or copy another person’s art style, being taught by an artist does not make your style identical to theirs.

 

When comparing request threads, the two accounts follow the same format: titled ____’s Art Shop: [subject matter], a banner created by the same generator, a similar set of rules, and a requirement to take an ‘oath’ involving your account name. Neither thread has any completed requests, either.

 

 

AS A DISCLAIMER

All of this information was accurate at the time of posting. Any new information that arises after posting do not count to this rant, as I was not aware of it, and cannot/should not be used in argument against me UNLESS there is evidence of the information existing publically and easily accessable by me prior to time of posting.

Alrighty. I'm back, for at

Alrighty. I'm back, for at least a few days, if these new antidepressants are working.

This is ludicrous. I can see how you connect that Rebell is me, and I can understand that the similarities between our artwork may lead you to believe that we are the same person. However, I will give decisive proof that I am not Rebell.

All of you have seen my face. I have posted it here, on the forum, as well as on my DeviantArt. If you check the SoD Fanart Discord channel she made, you will see a selfie of Rebell, aka my friend Rachael. If you're wondering why I said Kristen earlier, it's because she has decided to go by her middle name since she doesn't like her first one. Compare our faces. We look nothing alike.

I taught her the art skills she knows through roughly a year and a half of slow art lessons. So what if her style is similar? Of course it is, I'm still teaching her! She will develop her own style over time. Just be patient.

As for the art trade with you, Bonfire, I PMed you explaining that I wasn't aware of the fact that the image had not sent, and that I would upload it when I got to school. With all you've accused Rachael of, consider yourself lucky that I'm even giving it to you. You have treated her like vermin, all of you. Assuming that she's me? That's pretty low. Yes, I have let her use my Imgur account, but she's out of school so she doesn't have to be constrained by her parents' internet rules anymore, and she made her own Imgur account.

How does the fact that our art threads have similarly structured titles and rules "provide proof" that I am Rachael? I structured my threads and titles after Nessie's, since she is a good friend of mine and her threads are nicely put together. So don't bash on Rachael because I did something.

All of you, leave Rachael alone. She does not deserve such treatment from -seemingly- nice people. She is an amazing person, and if you give her a chance instead of judging her, you might find that she is a phenomenal friend as well.

As a side note: until this is all over, I will halt all progress, however little, I have made on any art requests since the trades are all completed, to the best of my knowledge. No one who has harassed and BULLIED my friend will receive any further artwork of my doing, and if Rachael decides that she will do art for you, consider yourselves inexplainably lucky. You have treated her like a rat. She is a forgiving person though, given time to think.

I have said what I need to.

This is a really good explanation. This along with some stuff I've seen has pretty much convinced me this person is sock puppeting.

 

However I'm not sure about the reference.

Catastrophic Quaken - NBG

Yeah they are similar but they look like a case of same kind of dragon just happens to be drawn in a similar stance to me. The wings aren't the same shape or same angle, the legs aren't positioned the same, the head is at a different angle the tail isn't the same shape, spikes are situated differently and the mouth isn't open. This really seems to me like someone who happened to draw the dragon in a similar pose but it doesn't look like it was traced or copyed. They just look similar because it's the same speacys.

Yes, I used that image as a reference. So what? I didn't trace it, or anything. And, Bonfire, I wasn't aware that you thought this was a WIP photo and I was under the impression that you had accepted it as  a finished work. I can keep working on it, if you'd like. Although, I don't know what more I can do. She's a skeletal, gold-fire-glowing Quaken. There's not much I can do, since she doesn't have scales or anything.

That's really just nit-picking small differences. Of course it's not an one on one copy, but it doesn't mean it hasn't been heavily eyeballed. It's too similar for an art trade. Rebell should have told Bonfire that she was going to reference an existing picture very heavily. The idea of an art trade is to pay for original art with original art and NOT take a lazy shortcut w/o telling your trading partner. Imagine slaving over a home-made cake for a home-made cake-trade and your partner gives you a grocery store cake with a single dot of whipping cream they added themselves.

 

"they just look the same because it's the same species" makes no sense. Does this mean that any quaken drawing looks similar? Does every dog drawing look the same because they're all of dogs? I don't think I need to answer tht question ;þ

If you draw a quaken in a sideways ready to attack pose it will look similar to these pictures. That's what I mean. If you draw a dragon doing the same action it will look similar to other members of it's speacys doing that action. Normally I agree with you when you pick out something as copyed but I think you're the one nitpicky here. The only things similar about these pictures are the pose and the type of dragon and the pose isn't even the same it's just similar.

No, it really won't look the same if you don't heavily reference that drawing.

Rebell's drawing looks incredibly similar to the RoB picture. Others have said the same thing. I don't think one even has to be an artist to see those grating similarities. 

 

Still the point was that you shouldn't do that stuff in an art trade w/o telling your partner.

I just don't think these two pictures look the same. I don't see it. Similar sure but not nearly as similar as you see it. If the pose was a more action oriented specific one I could see it then but this feels to me like something someone could accidentally do in this case because the original picture's pose is so generic.

i think she took the basic

i think she took the basic skelatorial bone shape and then added her own body shape and features to it.  I say there's nothing wrong with that.:/ But if it was me, I would have choosen to tell the receiver that i am useing a reference picture, this is it, and it will look rather similar.

Wiggles the whispering death ate my subject

That is possible and if so it would indeed have been a better choice to say so. It's always good to be as outfront as possible. The person waiting on this picture mentioned a delay without much comunication. I wonder if the OP had just communicated more on how progress was going would they have been jumped so much. They would likely have still been jumped for puppeting but I wonder if this picture would have even been noticed if they hadn't already been suspisious of this person. Said suspicion has been going on for a while.

frickdoodles what is happening here

I figured I should state my opinion on the matter, seeing as this has become a widely debated topic between all of you. Oh, the SoD forums never change. Just sit down and have tea and talk things out instead of yelling, won't you?

My thoughts are these: we have two different stories. Rebell claiming they're not Archer, and a great deal of evidence to the fact that they are, supplied by my friend Wutend. Honestly, I'd prefer to stand in the middle of all this. If Rebell IS the person they claim to be, a person decidedly NOT Archer, I'm ready to accept that and I will even feel guilty for the part I've played in this. No person deserves to be harassed for something they are not. And under normal circumstances, I wouldn't condone what happened here to the slightest degree.

But, unfortunately that's not the case. Unfortunately, I can't take the chance to just believe Rebell out of the blue. I am a trusting person in general, but that trusting personality has been betrayed too many times, mostly in real life, for me to merely accept the fact that Rebell is Archer. But that isn't even the reason I believe Archer may very well be Rebell.

I am a part of a group that has been digging up a sheer WALL of evidence, ever since this problem spiked a few months ago. This is not gossip, I can assure you all- it is the concern that other artists around the forums may be scammed, and that this whole thing may just be one gigantic lie taking place, on your part. And I must say, they've been pulling up quite a lot of evidence that all points to one thing: Rebell being Archer. 

Rebell, if you're reading this, please understand I have no ill will against you. I am not fully convinced you are Archer, and I will NOT be until there's concrete evidence. But, seeing as I have seen plenty of substantial evidence with my own two eyes, I will also refuse to believe you are actually who you say you are. I don't know who you are, and honestly, I don't particularly care, so long as nobody gets scammed. Also, it's not my place to share the evidence against you. Wutend already shared plenty of it. Rebell, I care about you as a person, no matter who you are. It's only if someone gets hurt in all of this will I go on the defensive.

I believe I've said enough.

I know it might make you

I know it might make you uncomfortable, but can you please PM me the so called evidence that "proves" I am Archer? I would like to see how people connect it.

Time is the security blanket of the human race.

I distinctly stated it was not my place to share the evidence, therefore your answer is a direct contradiction to what I said in my previous post. Attempting to read the wishes of someone who would have your name cleared may assist you in this plight you have found yourself in. Also, I sorely hope you've read Wutend's post, which is a very large amount of information pointing to you being Archer, and much of it of which I go off. 

I find it interesting you wish to take it to PM. But no matter. I'll see what I can do.

I don't really see bons

I don't really see bons evidence as evidence. And I don't see evidence that rebell is archer. If there is, it was so jumbled up in everything that I couldn't see it. Yeah rebells art may look Like the reference picture but that s all. If you have a problem with the art don't take it and keep the confrontations between the members of the party. This may be online but that doesn't give the right to embarrass someone or be ugly to them. That is a small form of cyber bullying and, just to put it out there, I'm not threatening anyone, is against the law in a way. 

Its the holidays, let's not spend it debating about each other. I don't see the point in beating each other up over a picture that someone doesn't like. Compared to character and real life that seems so meaningless.  We all a week later will have been sooo past this. So let's let it go now.

 

I think it is Rebells right to privately ask to see the evidence against herself.

 

Should old acquaintance be forgot,

and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

Oi.

I think I have a few things to say. heh

@Shamara, while giving people the benefit of the doubt (innocent until proven guilty) is typically a good thing to do, I think it's also a good thing to become unbiased for a second. Take a breath, step back and don't think about how 1: you don't like the people who think Rebell is wrong, 2: How Rebell is your friend.

Think for a moment, and look at the evidence. If you still hold the same view, well... I don't know what else to tell you.

To be honest, I lean on the side of Squiid, Varku, Wutend and so forth. But that's just my opinion.

I don't have much else to say, and I doubt my opinion will make much of a difference, but I felt that I should try and chip in.

Hi. You might've known me before as Boomy, Boom, Boombox, etc.

I used to be super-active on the SoD forums for a long time. But, something happened and I began to see that the forums weren't really what I thought they were. When I first joined, the community was so full and thriving that there were Roleplays and art requests around every corner. And, there were a lot of really cool people. And who knows, maybe there still are. I don't know really. All I know is, I began to see less and less of it. And I began to see the uglier, meaner side of the forums. It's really just a place full of complaints, questions, concerns and no answers.

So I left.

You can still find me on Discord (Boombox#9078), Instagram (boombooxle) and Deviantart (BumuBokkusu)

But I won't be here. At least, not for a while. Maybe someday I'll make a big comeback and find out things are completely different. But, until then...
