=========
I'm happy so many people have enjoyed this, reblogged it, and made use of it on their profiles :3
I have seen quite a few places where it's been reblogged/used with no credit, aaand that isn't cool...Hopefully most people can find the original source ><;;

Flying drippy eyebat...to go along with the fabric I made a while back ^_^

=========
Poppy stole this and used it in one of her music videos...I did not give consent for this. I probably would've if I were asked, but I was never asked...
I have not received a single dime from her 14+ million views she got on youtube for that music video. fun fact kids!


Every time I try to start a copyright claim, youtube responds with this:

Hey, Friend Artist CloverWing,

I love your eyebat, and I love how it was used in Poppy's Money video.

However, I do NOT love the fact that you *still* haven't been compensated for use of your work.

If a bunch of Poppy fans did a fundraiser for you, 
how much would cash would it take
to have you feeling like you finally got
a Square Deal,
plus a Modicum of Respect,
and thus grant a retroactive clearance for all your stuff that appears in "Money"?

With Sincere Interest,

Steve Ray

Wow you are really sweet to even consider doing something like this!!

I mean, it isn't the responsibility of the fans (of Poppy or fans of my work) to do what the video making crew should've done to begin with...but. If you really want to organize something like this I'd feel so honored ><

It's so hard for me to even think of a price though, I'd feel bad naming anything for something that's more of a charity/respect thing you know?
If you end up organizing something like this, I think I would make a thank-you video just documenting my take on the whole event and of course mention anyone who would even bother to contribute anything towards it, plus mention other people who have posted or made their own videos on the topic.

Oh, wait a minute, I'm dumb!

Howzabout I use the DeviantArt Commission system
to order "artwork" like "$112.00 USD of Eyebat Love" 
(or however much has been collected),
which you can collect by sending an MS-Paint image that says "thx"?

Will that work?

I am well aware that this is not my responsibility,
but sometimes artists are jerks
(I know that *I've* certainly been a jerk to people 
once or twice in my life)
and then too proud to make amends.

And I'd like to give the Saga of the Eyebat (and any other purloined pixels)
a happy ending (or happi-er),
so then everyone can have more fun watching the Money video 
instead of feeling like they have to be angry.

So what PayPal account (or other privacy-protecting payment method)
would you like me to use?

If you are worried you'll get hate-spammed if you publicize your normal account,
I can make a fresh one and then forward the proceeds to you.

I just want to be able to tell folks that Yes, Absolutely This Money Is Going To CloverWing, 
not that I Sure Hope To Get It To CloverWing Somehow.

If we even had a good PayPal account for you, 
that would let the nobler #poppyseeds start making things right,
or at least a little less wrong.

Just a thought.

They probably just googled "cute eye ball gif" and found it randomly on google. Probably never saw your deviant page. But at least you got it removed, so they will have to edit it without your art :)

CloverWing Featured By Owner May 10, 2018
Yeah, that is definitely possible! When you have a brand like that, it's really not the best way to go even still x_x
You're just setting up to shoot yourself in the foot for later, and its just best to try and track down where something came from....blah.

But yeah!!! I'm curious to see how the next vid will be XD? maybe they'll use their weird version of the eyebat that they post on their merch lol...

Well, it's not on youtube anymore that's for sure. I figured you'd know something about it but if not, I'd guess they removed it themselves. Maybe to avoid looking bad with the whole Mars Argo lawsuit going on?

Oh heck can they stop stealing stuff from people. I think you should talk more about this to people showing them proof. Sucks that youtube won't help. I'm so mad at them. Besides that, this is adorable. Good job.

Okay, so I wanna help you file the DMCA.

Also, I wanna make a video over the Poppy situation and mention your pixel being stolen. Is that okay with you? ;o

Honestly,,, I'd consider getting a no-win-no-fee lawer or something against poppy,,, youtube is refusing to handle a legal dmca,,, you could sue youtube themselves for it

I am going to do a little research on a lawyer just to ask them realistically: what chance do I have of actually winning any sort of case, how much would it cost me to pursue this, worst case scenarios, etc....
I read through Deviant Art's terms of service, and my "rights" over something I upload are not given up just because I upload it. Some youtube commenter told me that I was SOL because once I upload I give up all rights, but that actually isn't true apparently! So yes, I'll do what I can. :)

Clover, I say you should also file a lawsuit as well since Poppy is selling your icon on merchandise. This is not right for her, her producers, or director to do. They are all at fault here for stealing your work.

CloverWing Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2018
She actually isn't using my icon on merchandise. They drew an eye bat/winged eye on their own, which is not a new concept. If they were selling my exact pixel drawing on merch there'd be an issue : P

They did use it in the video though. I even took my photo editing tool to overlay hers on top of yours. They’re exactly the same. So there is theft there. And they do monetize YouTube videos, so she’s getting profit off of the video your art is featured in.

Thankfully, Poppy and her productor are now under a copyright lawsuit

hey, i made this account to share some details of that. poppy is indeed being sued by another artist, mars argo, due to copyright infringement. ( tmz.vo.llnwd.net/o28/newsdesk/… )

i also wanna add that poppy has been selling a backpack that clearly rips off your design. ( shop.maddecent.com/products/po… )

i really recommend reaching out to mars (she's marsargo on pretty much any website) and trying to get some justice for this. she isn't super active and might not respond but it's worth a shot.

she herself didn't steal it, it was her producers so don't go blaming the singer for it she isnt the one who edited the video :-) think about it

True, but if she knows about it (which apparently she does because she had responded to one of my messages to her directly claiming that she'd give credit but never did) nothing changed :(


I still enjoy some of her songs, not trying to hate, it would've just been nice if her or her crew gave me some credit or ASKED before using.
