Hello, I am Monika, or Crystal-Dream, or also known as JamaiDark from youtube.com.
I am a plushie knitter, love to draw my own manga called "Eternal Purity" and have also took a liking into fandubbing.
I am a fan of Sonic the hedgehog, but also like YuGiOh GX and 5Ds so much, as well as Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ghost in the Shell and some more.
Hope you enjoy your stay here. :)

I am writing this Journal because I have been witness to something that me wonder what motivations lie behind doing this.
What I want to talk about is that in specifically the Sonic fan community (which I have more or less already left, but which was the one franchise that years and years ago led me into the internet and its various communities at all when I just started puberty), the creation of blatant rip-offs is apparently a thing.

I know that creating parodies off of other characters is something that is done and has been done for a long time. Otherwise, a TV series like "Drawn Together" wouldn't exist, since this one is full of parody characters. But in a community like Deviantart, I think the most important rule should be basic human decency - and this includes ASKING beforehand if it is okay to use an Original Character as a base for a parody character.

And with that being said, I want to show you the following: This person used a character WITHOUT PRIOR PERMISSION and I want to use this Journal to direct some attention to this growing problem...

So, down there, on the left, you can see the parody character and in the description you can see the original she was based off.

Shaylo Redesign by IDKY-HannahFu

:iconshaylo-artistry: has clearly stated in the comments section below that this "Re-design" was done without any prior permission from her. On top of that, and especially after some drama caused earlier in the year, Shaylo doesn't need any more stress and antagonization - she is 6 months pregnant, and stress such as this may negatively affect the baby.
In my opinion, just taking a character and re-designing this without asking beforehand is very much like stealing an OC. Even more so when you go around wanting to sell the parody for money (or deviantart points, which are still bought with real-life money).

Another rather famous case is with the OC Jane "Akai" Dalia who belongs to :iconcobaltpie:
I have seen countless Ripoffs of this character, and pairings that have been created, AGAINST the express permission of the original artist and owner.

So, is this the new hip thing to do with this new generation? Just redo and redo, instead of thinking up something own?

So, my dear readers of this Journal, what are your thoughts on this? I am curious what you have to say to this.

Rockruff - Max version by Crystal-Dream
Rockruff - Max version
I wanted to try out how the new Pokemon Rockruff (called "Wuffels" in german) would look like in the coat colors of Max. No other dog Pokemon came close to looking like him, so ever since I saw Rockruff, I wondered how he would look like with Max' coat colors. crystal-dream.deviantart.com/a…

Gosh, I wish that was it's shiny form.
We always used to call Max "Wuffli", too. :D

I forgive you by Crystal-Dream
I forgive you
Oh my Gosh, I have finally finished coloring this lineart which has been in my sketchbook for over 9 months now! I eventually want to get back into drawing new pictures with these two, because gosh, the NOSTALGIA. It reminds me of better times. Plus, Gosh, Yubel is beautiful, I miss drawing them.

... Not to mention I still have this video I planned on doing but never finished. So many unfinished projects in my life that just make me wonder what I am doing with my life!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this. It feels kind of refreshing after all the Pokemon/Mewtwo Art I have posted on this account recently. :D
I think I might get back into them if I listen to their soundtrack once again that I had assembled years ago. Kirsty Hawkshaw has quite some good tracks, as well as Seba, that always remind me of the essence of this couple.

Meeting of the Mewtwo Sisters by Crystal-Dream
Meeting of the Mewtwo Sisters
"And you look so human! Tell me, how is the human world like?"
"It's not worth it to talk much about that, believe me. Humans are despicable beings."


This is a short comic I made after I couldn't get this fantasy out of my head that I would like to have Kunai meet Aysel, :iconmakemeblank:'s OC. I like Aysel's design and i can relate to the disappointment she feels for humans.  Humans are despicable beings sometimes, it's true.

I know that the probability of Kunai and Aysel meeting would be of a low probability , but daaang, this fantasy didn't want to leave my mind and I like to imagine Aysel at least meeting someone who could become her friend. Or even sister, considering they both are part Mewtwo. And if you can't relate to any human, you could relate best to someone who shares your origin.

I believe that when Kunai would meet Aysel for the first time, she would be very curious about it. After all, it doesn't happen everyday that you meet someone who is similar to you. And I can imagine that Kunai would be fascinated by how human Aysel looks like. Kunai does live more like a Pokemon, because it is harder for her to hide this side of her.
I am still not sure if I am really satisfied with the design of Kunai's clothes. I have surprisingly never worked all details out for myself much before, because I only ever drew Kunai a few times into my diary since she appeared in a dream of mine around 12 years ago and I was too ashamed to show her on the internet. I am not even sure if I want to keep her name, but after so many years, it is difficult to name her something else now.

Anyway, hope you enjoy this short comic. :)

Best Friends by Crystal-Dream
Best Friends
This is a picture I drew for :iconshaylo-artistry: who has been a close friend of mine for close to a decade now and with whom I had spent some time with this week.

So, this is me and her with our chosen fantasy companions. She has been a fan of Shadow the hedgehog for at least 15 years, almost as long as I have been a fan of Mewtwo.

Hope you like it. :)

Danke sehr! Sag mal, du hast das Bild doch traditionell gezeichnet, oder? Gibt es irgendeine Möglichkeit, mir das Original vielleicht per Brief zuzuschicken?

Aber gerne doch supporte ich sie. :) Und danke, ich bin froh, dass ich diese stamps benutzen darf, vor allem weil ich dachte, dass es gar nicht möglich ist.
