As we all know there's plenty of controversy between who actually owns ruuza, so let me give you the full story right here in one place.
I used to love wolves and lions as a child. My favorite movies were lion king, balto, and all dogs go to heaven. My dad grew up with huskies (he used to live in alaska some of his childhood), and watching the old movies of him with them made me love huskies so much. My grandparents also had a wolfdog (german shepherd and wolf) when I was growing up. So up until a couple years ago I was obsessed with wolves and huskies and shepherds (I still love german shepherds lol). I had plenty of fan stories and original stories that I recently became embarrassed of and put into storage/deleted (full metal alchemist, jigoko shojo, etc). I every so often draw wolves and full metal again, normally after browsing through my binders of old drawings, but as you can see from my gallery I keep everything very private these days.
How it happened
I submitted a picture of ruuza the other day, and suddenly I get these people yelling that I stole my own character- a simple white wolf no less. So then after having my page spammed I find out this person, lets call her "Tracey", had made a journal calling me an art thief (lol) and telling people to come after me. She even told someone to KILL me. So I go into my gallery and pull out a couple ruuza pieces I still had in storage and scanned an old copyright document. A good amount of people realized they'd been duped, but a few others weren't convinced so I went and dug through my sister and my old drawings and uploaded a REALLY old pic from 2002. That about did it.
Tracey the Tracer
So we started going through Tracie's gallery. I noticed how she completely lacked any and all anatomy skills, yet some of her drawings had suspiciously good bodies and then a horrible head and paws. I kept going and got to the end of her gallery, and there it was. Crude tracings over anime, lion king, and pokemon. I then realized most of her gallery is actually stolen! My friends and I quickly looked into it and found plenty of the originals she had traced. A couple people presented this to her- and as soon as she came online she quickly hid everything she possibly could and took everything about me out of her journal. This pretty much convinced anyone left that she was not only a thief, but a lying bitch that had used them without caring that they nearly got banned thanks to her. Not only are her drawings traced- but her animations that are a rip off azurehowl are all traced off wolf's rain.
Journal about the art theft: sofine127.deviantart.com/journ…
I do own ruuza- but I'm not going to attack anyone else who might happen to have a white wolf named ruuza. Why? Because I didn't steal it from anyone, and I'm not an art thief. If you have any question, please feel free to note me or the group. Please don't come here to do Tracie's bidding, she's blocked from me and my group for a reason and being her puppet will be classified as block evasion. Plus we don't need to start any unnecessary drama. ^_^
