Final Update on the Randy Queen/Escher Girls situation

eschergirls:

Okay, so hopefully this will be the final update. :)

Since yesterday evening, I have had private email conversations with Mr. Queen. He’s personally apologized to me, and I’ve accepted it. He is also withdrawing the DMCA takedown complaints against this blog.

As of this post’s writing, Tumblr…

This adorable little set arrived today. :)

Urghhhhhhhh why
I changed:
Less passive/submissive/childlike(??) expressions on women who are meant to be getting shit done. No one is wearing an assault vest for a bra. Trousers are buttoned up. The woman on the right is no longer contorting herself uncomfortably. Her butt is no longer the main focus. No wedgie. Sigh.


Why couldn’t they have been like that from the start, they look so much better!

So yesterday I found out that Randy Queen (artist of DarkChylde) filed a bunch of DMCA takedown notices to Tumblr to remove posts of his covers on this blog (the entire posts, not just the images).  I’ve also gotten messages from other users that he’s had their stuff removed too (redraws, etc that have been featured here).  Non-critical Tumblr posts of his art/covers and those praising his work appear to be unaffected.
I’m writing this to let other people who run sites that might have criticized his work ( thehawkeyeinitiative, bikiniarmorbattledamage, boobsdontworkthatway, repair-her-armor, comicartcorrections etc) know that he seems to use DMCA takedowns to remove pages that are critical of his work.  And, to be prepared that he might have Tumblr remove your posts without warning (there was no prior communication of any kind, or conventional requests for removal).
Also, if you’ve submitted redraws of his stuff to these sites, you might want to ask them to put them private for now (if he complains about a submission you’ve made, Tumblr will count it as a complaint against your account).
To date, Mr. Queen is the only artist who has taken this kind of action - other artists and publishers seem to understand Escher Girls & other similar sites are fair use and criticism, and that fan discussion, positive or negative, is important and helpful to their business. (In fact, the creators I’ve interacted with are either fans of EG, or expressed disagreement but know that it’s fan criticism.)
If anybody is curious about what his DarkChylde art looked like and why they were featured on this blog you can find them here.
(Don’t harass him on his Facebook or Tumblr by the way.  I’m not interested in having a feud with him, just letting people know what’s going on.)
Update: He has now filed a DMCA takedown with Tumblr to remove this post.  This post is still up on Escher Girls, but every single reblog of it has been removed.

Saying it again as clearly as I can.

These bullying tactics by Randy Queen are DEAD WRONG and this is completely unacceptable. 
Mr. Queen, LEAVE THESE PEOPLE ALONE. 

You are absolutely in the wrong on this, and are only making yourself look worse by further threats.

Are these horse or cow purses? The front looks more like a cow, but the tail is a horse tail.. Do I have any need for a horse bag?… Do I still feel a great urge to buy one? Yes, yes I do.. #purse, #cuddly, #oslo, #shopping, #weird, #horse
