Drew this earlier today. It sums up my feelings pretty well…
If anyone needs more visual proof?? This is not a copy or an eyeball tracing, its DIRECT TRACING over the icon just editing it to show as another character and taking the work I did for you guys (FOR FREE) and selling them to people for profit on deviantart, that is NOT OKAY
signal boosting this real quick!! deviantART user rockycandy is taking my pal harumi’s adorable christmasstuck icons (which i’m sure you all know!) and tracing over them, claiming them as her own, and selling them for dA points. this is NOT OK!!
this isn’t “copying a style”
this is TRACING
tracing another person’s work and profitting off of it is against dA’s terms and conditions and this person needs to stop
That’s a bit hypocritical…
i’m pretty sure i’m going to choke to death on the irony here
also, more proof, just thought i’d add on
REBLOGS THIS FOR THAT PRINT SCREENED COMMENT
SHE IS CALLING MY ICONS /HERS/ AND THAT NO ONE CAN MAKE THEIR OWN, THEY HAVE TO /BUY/ THEM FROM HER
LAUGHS REALLY HARD
Um wow people are ridiculous. Signal boost.
What the shit.
People have being really shitty about art theft lately, what even?
hey, guys! so last week it was brought to my attention that this guy copied something i drew! i contacted him privately in the hopes of resolving this peacefully, but he has refused to answer my message!
here are the images in question
it has also been brought to my attention that many of the other things on his art tag were copied from other artists!
please, please help me bring this to everyone’s attention!
that’s p. rude of them. >:/
Someone just used my art on an album cover WITHOUT my permission
I am not some kid who you can just take art from and use it for album covers. I am an artist who has rights. I won’t take this at all.
OH HECK NO
Everyone report this ASAP!
Please go report this, everyone! Art theft is NOT OKAY WITH US.
