Stealing is....stamp by foo-dog Stealing is....stamp by foo-dog
Well, I wanted to put this on my journal. :P
This is a message to those who lack respect for themselves and others.

Art thieves and plagiarizers won't steal works that they dislike....since they most likely to use/repost those works as "theirs."
But what a terrible way to show appreciation for efforts of the original artists/writers.
Completely lame. :no:

Feel free to use if this message appeals to you. :D

It's funny because alot of them don't even try to cover up their evidence. Leaving water marks. Not changing the title,leaving it as a save named like '271846blahblah-by-blahman47' or their art styles change completely from each deviation.

Message definitely appeals -- and is appreciated. I've had two cases of people using and reposting my art (and one brat who saw fit to use something of mine as their avvie WITHOUT my permission), and I find it very, very, very offensive. Heck, the only excuse I got out of the brat who reposted one of my paintings was "I did it because I wanted to". He doesn't have an account here anymore, though. :)

Does saving a picture count as stealing...?
Lord-FurFur Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Nope, if its for your own personal use or, you are not claiming it as well as making a profit from it. It can also stand for use in "education purpose" as well if, it does not leave the class room.Then you're fine. C:

Favorited. Trying to reduce the theft of my art is something that takes up a HUGE amount of my time on a regular basis. >_<

And how do you feel about SOPA?
FlintENT Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I agree with this stamp. Some people think that taking others' art is only helping them become popular and make that as an excuse. While it does get the artist more attention, stealing is still stealing. I do not appreciate stealing, even if someone really likes my artwork. I would that person tell me they like it than to steal it.

I'll use this. I like that it's simple and not overbearing. Very nice.
Orchid-Phoenix Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Just asking someone random... but do you think drawing a new character that hasn't actually been created (or so in my case) is art theft? I just got accused on my profile of stealing art when really, the art is a girl, not a boy (i do realize this was a long time ago so i apologize ^^; )
adelaar1 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2014  Professional General Artist
If you made up the character, no. If it is a clone of a character, possibly, it depends on the copyright from the original. If it just so happens to look like some other thing unintentionally, no. If it is not for profit fan art, no. If it is someone else's work, yes. If it is an already used concept, like dragon people or something, most likely, no. (Because a million people could come up with the same thing) But I couldn't say for certain without more info.
Orchid-Phoenix Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I did actually make up the character because im bored. And i did it for fun... It so happens that i can't make anything angel like without being told that i am ripping off Nintendo. My characters, according to my research, have never been created. And this is very helpful ^^ Ty.
