So, it's finally happened to me! Someone using a drawing of mine and basically taking credit for it. Not just that, but the kid has the balls to use it as his featured drawing!
took my Future Foundation Spider-man sketch, changed the contrast on it, and claims that he "inked"it!
If it weren't for a fellow deev sending a note to me (not sure if they'd liked to be named), I wouldn't have known. (A big THANKS again!)
Well, it has been reported to DA and hopefully they will take it down soon. It's not that I even mind collaborating with someone, or someone asking if they can take a sketch of mine to ink and/or color because they like it, or they want to use it for practice, or whatever. But, this kid didn't do that. I think someone may have tired to "call him" on it before, and he place a "credit" to me, but he didn't link it to the original drawing and never informed me about it. Just annoying, that is. I've seen this with others, but I've never understood the mentality.
I've posted something to him. I've reported it. Like I said, I've seen others talk about when this has happened to them. I know there are people that do not have the patience, or sympathy, for this kind of thing. I'm just making aware, and reminding, that their really are people out there that do this and they should be called out. If you do happen to look and feel the need to say something, please let him know that this kind of thing is wrong and won't be tolerated by the rest of us, trying to do good work. No need to be nasty or unkind. Thanks.
WELL,... maybe a little unkind...
I'm just say'n.
