Ok so I’ve been quiet about this for some time now, and I thought I should break that silence and make this public. (Hey other people are posting art PSA’s, this ain’t new)
We are Artists, We are many
Being a artist on Tumblr alone isnt easy. There are millions of other people  doing the exact same thing you’re doing. Amongst all of them you can be overlooked so easily. Now I am familiar with all those PSAs about not worrying about being popular and loving your own art. Thats all well and good, no ones debating that. But we artist want to share our art with the world. We want to show everyone what we can do.
The Wall
When we receive praise and love for our work, thats the best feeling in the world for us. We all have friends, fellow artists or not, that support us. But here on Tumblr, your art might not get pushed out into the crowd. For myself as an example, I get a 1 reblog for every 10 likes on something. And this is only including when I originally post it. When art post is liked, no one else sees it. Likes stay hidden and don’t appear on others dashes. (And yes, some blog themes do show likes, this I am aware)
Likes are good, but Reblogs do a lot more
When someone reblogs your art, a whole new set of people get to see it. Most of them are people who have never seen your stuff before. For example, whenever Carbines Official WIldstar Tumblr reblogs my Wildstar art, I get bombarded with likes, reblogs even follows! But before that, when I post it in the first place, not much happens. Dont get me wrong, I’m grateful I get anything, but feedback and notoriety is what keeps an artist like me going, and many others as well. Now I may understand that sometimes something someone draws isn’t your cup of tea, that’s alright! But even if you show a little interest, a reblog does a world of difference.
Support your friends, Support those who care
I know this is all sounding a little preachy, but it’s something I needed to get off my chest. There are no complaints, there are no orders, just a call out from all us artists. From the big and professional, to the small and unseen. We all want to share our art with the world, and it can all begin with a reblog.
( I dont think I need to say that everyone should reblog this, it goes without saying no?)

In many ways, the curse of our people began and ended with Grom. 

His name meant "Giant's Heart" in our ancient tongue. He earned that name a hundred fold as he stood alone before the demon Mannoroth -- and won our freedom with his blood. Lok'Tar Ogar, Big Brother. 

May the Warsong never fade.

Anonymous asked: What are your views on tumblr constantly whining about going to college for free being a right?

durkin62:

As far as I’m concerned educating your populace is an investment. More productive and knowledgeable citizens means a better running economy. As long as you’re education system is actually effective. Which is debatable at best here in America.

As far as it being a right, no it isn’t a fundamental right. But I think the government would be better off offering free education to its citizens, again if the education system didn’t suck a bag of dicks. At the very least our rates for what it cost to attend college are outrageous.

Or perhaps offer services at community colleges for free and keep tuition for private or more prestigious colleges. So people who can’t afford the upper tier colleges still have access to education, but those who with the finances can afford schools with better teacher to student ratios ext. 

Or offer certain majors that are less time and resource consuming for free, or adjust which majors are offered for free every couple of years based on what the nations needs.

We could exchange community service hours for points towards classes, There has been an big increase of crowd sourcing jobs recently, could count those towards points for classes. Just tossing out a few ideas here off the top of my head. Something I’d like to go more in depth over but another time when I’m not so fucking tired. 

But I honestly believe properly (I think our education system is essentially broken if you have’t caught that yet) educating its citizens should be a primary focus of any government. Because it benefits the government, if its goal is the overall well being of its citizens (I think our political system is broken in many regards as well.) But I also understand there just isn’t a way to make a completely level field for people of all income levels, because these things cost resources to maintain.
