What the fuck is wrong with you??

:heart::iconsilverdeni::iconmushymutt::heart:



No call out journals, but I'd like to generalize this. Some of you are aware of what's going on. Some don't.

How can someone be so... shallow to have the nerve to commission various artists, art of a yoinked character design from someone, who paid for that character, AND send a reference image of the character drawn by that artist who originally owns it...

Why, people. Why.

This is the first time that happened to me, where someone commissions me to draw a stolen char...; Unfortunately I cannot do anything about it since the transaction is already done and my services have been offered, so the deal is closed, ended. Dude...  a while ago, I also had someone inquire a fursuit commission of my own fursona at some point which was... a bad idea. XD why people, why are you so... argh!


have you ever had that happen to you? You drew a commission of a stolen character or had your character stolen and drawn by others as a commission? Whether it's artwork or crafts (sculpts, fursuits etc etc)

I was doing free requests, and this person approaches me with this OC. Luckily I looked in their gallery and saw that they had no claim on the character. So the request was never finished.

I guess I am not popular enough to have stuff stolen from me XD
I only once had a commission with a character from somebody else than the commissioner, but it was a gift to the original owner :D

Oh my god I feel you!!

That is so frustrating...

While I've never actually had someone commission my own character, someone did steal it and try to make it their own.

I emphasize try, because it didn't work out so well on their part. ;)

I've had to much trouble with art theft it's made me insane. (No pun intended -Point to name-)

Anyway I wish you the best of luck with this and future art theft, because there probably will be some.

I have that problem personally with my own character (slightly irrelevant), but i've been inspired by certain artists' furries and their attributes and I want to emulate characteristics without being a charlatain about it. I actually been working on some new drawings of said character of mine and have great Ideas but I want it to be my own which seems impossible. Help?

I do not condone plagarism.

How was the character stolen? Was it being claimed by another artist as their creation? I'm just trying to understand what happened... ^^'

I'm a bit late posting this, but this has never happened to me.
However, I recall someone claiming that I gave them one of my characters, and then trying to sell that character off, when in fact I hadn't.

I recently found out about this, the worst thing is, the person who used my character, used her as a sex toy. He got a commission of his character banging my character and I never gave him permission to use her nor do I even know him! My character has never had an adult piece done of her and if she did it would of been with my mate of 5 years. The worst part is he made a story about it, claiming that he was the father having sexual relations with his daughter, he didnt even bother to change the characters name.

It's weird, even though she isn't REAL, shes still mine and a reflection of myself and it makes me feel >->..... Violated... LOL

The artist who did the piece felt really bad and took it down but he still hasn't
