You know, I try very hard to be very open when it comes to people wanting to share my artwork. The only things I've ever asked for are...
That the person ask my permission and credit me, or, at the very least just credit me.
But some people find those requests too demanding and will go to great troubles to ignore it.
Life in the Fail Lane: Oh What A Lazy Web We Weave
This incident was brought to my attention via a note from my friend, unconventionalsenshi
. She and I really enjoy Male Seiya and Usagi as a couple, and have drawn many cute images of them to show our appreciation of this often disregarded couple.
So, naturally, she called my attention to this.
Take a look at this image of mine. Notice anything missing?seiya-dj-supersinger.tumblr.co…
How about we look at my original image?fav.me/d2cr37h
Now do you notice anything missing?
That's right! My signature has been smudged away! Apparently, this person was ept and able enough to use the smudge tool in PhotoShop, but too inept and lazy to actually draw
How sad does this person's life have to be when the only artistic thing they can do is smudge a signature away in PhotoShop?
I actually feel bad for this person. Because if that's the scope of their creative abilities, I weep for this person's future...
And apparently I'm not the only victim here. Pretty much everyone who's drawn Seiya/Usagi and Minako/Yaten are being ripped off, and this person keeps carefully smudging away their signatures. unconventionalsenshi.deviantar…
If you have a Tumblr and can report this, you have my permission. I'm sure every other victim will also appreciate your help. Or, if you could at least raise awareness of this, that's always helpful. Thanks in advance if you can help in any way.EDIT:
And the image, along with some of the other ones, has been removed. Thanks a bunch to BlueKazenate
for helping me get it taken down.
And now, as if to add insult to injury, the little thief is claiming that she never intended to steal the images. If that were true, why'd she remove the signatures? Come on now! It's obvious she's only saying this because she got caught and was busted for it.
Until next time...
