FUN FACT: These eggs are evil. Octopus babies are evil. Let me tell you why. The octopus mother lays her eggs in a cave roof and spends 6 months guarding them from potential predators and swaying the eggs with her tentacle so they get oxygen. This means she doesn’t eat or sleep until they hatch. When the octopus babies hatch, she dies from fatigue and starvation. THEN THEY FUCKING EAT HER. THEY EAT THEIR MOTHER WHO DIED BECAUSE SHE WAS LOOKING AFTER THEM. THEY. EAT. HER.
This sounds like what my mother said i did to her
Ehehehehe. Indeed, indeed.
THIS IS SO CUTE.
so wait tyler basically stole this artwork for psychobabble and didnt give her credit for it whatsoever? he changed the the bg color and took away the watermark :/
no, troye made the artwork, this is an edit of troyes artwork
actually no, if you go to the original source (just click on her url) you can see that she posted this over a year ago, and psychobabble wasnt even a thing then, and the idea was probably not even thought of yet.
tyler didnt even notice it until the middle of august, not too long before they put up the first podcast, so most likely he gave it to troye to edit who basically just changed the color of the bg and put the text on it
if it was an edit of troyes artwork, im pretty sure tyler wouldnt acknowledge it since they changed so little about it, and also because he reblogged it even before she announced the podcast so how could she know this even existed?
troye didnt make it, he tweaked it a tiny bit and claimed it as his own, and tyler used it without giving any sort of acknowledgement towards the artist, when not too long ago there was a big discussion over him taking our artwork and not giving credit where its due, and he even apologized and said he would give credit from now on.
but what did he do? he erased the watermark which is clearly right there so he cant even make up the excuse that he didnt know who the original creator was
thats not cool tyler
nah, I got permission from the artist (Renaifoxi) months ago to use the artwork via private messages, and gave credit publicly as soon as the project was public itself. I appreciate the pseudo-investigative work, though. but while we’re talking about it, feel free to check out the podcast, which just came out with a new episode today
