I need to get this out of my system...
I am REALLY mad right now…
I AM REALLY FUCKING MAD
I’m so mad at the people who steal, trace, and repost MY art on some other websites. Even my sketches are being re-edited and turned into digital in some website. The last time I posted something about this was Idk maybe last month or three months ago?
I saw someone who LITERALLY just traced my Design of Ennard, and I could fucking tell, that it was originally my design. All they did was just trace over the sketch on paper that I did, traced it on digital art, coloured it, AND CLAIMED AS THEIR OWN.
At first, I just tried to contain my feelings. I did my best to stay calm, and kept telling myself that it’s all just coincidence! I said to myself, “You’re overreacting Liz! Don’t worry!” and all that stuff, but you know what? I’M FUCKING SICK OF IT NOW.
PEOPLE ARE FUCKING TAKING ADVANTAGE OF ME. I saw them post my art somewhere on Instagram, Vk.com and Pinterest. I tried to talk to them politely to kindly to take it down, but all they did was block me. I made an account on THESE specific websites to kindly ask them to take down my art that they “claimed” to be theirs, but all they did was ignore me.
And also, guess what? I saw another user HERE IN TUMBLR, retrace MY design of Ennard. I could tell that they just fucking copied my DS of Ennard, YES THEY COPIED MY DS OF ENNARD. ALL THEY CHANGED WAS THE COLOUR OF HIS SHIRT. I thought long and hard to make Ennard’s DS, I made up his lose tie, and straps on his shirt and I know that they copied it BECAUSE IT IS CLEARLY OBVIOUS THAT THEY COPIED MY DESIGN. YES I KNOW WHO THE FUCK DID IT, BUT BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO RUIN THAT USER, I DON’T WANT TO NAME HIM/HER.
I don’t give a damn if you say things like, “BUT, I HAVE 500+ FOLLOWERS AND THEY KNOW THAT THIS ART ISN’T MINE,” or, “BUT I CREDITED YOUR ART,” or, “I JUST WANTED TO SHARE YOUR ART SOMEWHERE ELSE!”
FOR AS LONG AS YOU DIDN’T ASK PERMISSION FROM ME TO POST MY ART ON SOME OTHER WEBSITE,
IT’S FINE IF YOU SHARED/REBLOG IT BECAUSE THE POST WILL SHOW THAT YOU REBLOGGED/SHARED IT FROM ME AND IT SHOWS THE POST WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED BY ME, BUT IF YOU FUCKING REPOST IT SOMEWHERE EVEN THOUGH IT HAS CREDIT WITHOUT PERMISSION, YOU ARE STEALING MARK MY FUCKING WORDS
“YOU ARE FUCKING STEALING”
