As the person who designed the shirt with the giant drill that says ROCK N STONE and also made the "To The Bone" painting that was a poster and a mousepad I had no idea this happened.
Usually ForFansByFans email the artists letting them know when things are changing. I didn't know they'd been bought out by GoodSmile until I saw this thread.
And it appears the two things I made for this lovely game, that I was quite honored got picked to be official merchandise, both got axed and wiped from the web in the transition from forfansbyfans to goodsmile.
This also explains why the two warframe official shirts I designed also mysteriously vanished, as well as the DOTA one.
I can't be too sad cause getting my art onto official merchandise is pretty much the only time in my career as an artist where I've achieved anything without someone else's help. I'm just happy that it happened in the first place.
I'm more perplexed that there was absolutely 0 notification from the ForFansByFans website to let everyone know that alot of the apparel and posters were going to be deleted and they were being bought out.
I'm very sorry to those of you who wanted to get a shirt or poster. I'm also very sorry to any fellow artists here in the DeepRock subreddit who also got their designs deleted. What a shame this all is.
I do hope the Ghostship crew try to find a new storefront. I'd happily resubmit my art if they want it.
