Art Theft (I need your help)

Two of my favorite Undertale artists left today.

The reason was because of the repeated problems of art theft they had to deal with. The stress of translating (they were Korean), asking the perpetrator to take them down, and reporting made them decide enough was enough. They had to deal with this almost DAILY.


So they chose to drop everything and leave.

I’m going to take this moment to talk about the prominent problems of art theft within the Undertale community.

I don’t plan to force my stand on this onto you, but I hope I can ask a bit of your time to read on. Because I really need your help.

To start with,

It’s when you take and repost another artist’s work without their permission (even if it’s sourced). This includes reposting, editing, using in MVs, and selling merchandise using the stolen works. 

Aside from it being illegal, it is disrespectful to the artist who put in their personal time to create art for their enjoyment. It is their work and they have the rights to do what they wish to do with it. To see their work being used without their permission violates their ownership. It is natural to feel uncomfortable about art THEFT

This is the part where I would like to ask for your help. I love Undertale and wish for it to be a healthy community for all, globally. But I am only one person who happens to speak both Korean and English.

So, if you see a site/video/merchandise/etc without permission to the original artist, please take the following steps:

Lastly, I want to thank you for taking your time reading this far. I am grateful for the followers I have and been blessed with kind people who asked for my permission before using my art. Not to mention, I haven’t had as many art theft issues thanks to all your keen lookout for me, which allowed me a healthy environment to continue making art.

I wish all Undertale artists to feel the same.

Thank you again! :D
