I had my artwork stolen back then by a bunch of stupid trolls, who also made fun of me. They even harassed me as a result. Thankfully, nowadays, there are very little trolls attacking me and my artwork doesn't get stolen often.

I'm not popular enough for that to have happened, though I imagine it would drive me insane.

To be honest, this kind of thievery rarely happens to me since my art style is not certainly everyone's cup of tea, but seeing two of my artworks (one of them is collab art) stolen by a few people makes me more confused after all.

I usually get mad as a response - confused is new tho I can see where confusion would come into it. It is a shame people took a couple of your works like that. I hope that will be the last time something like that happens to you!

nads6969 steals from everyone (but you already knew that)

Nads takes what she wants and doesn't give a fuck about proper credits and if you try to calmly talk to her about credits she'll block you because she's here for "F.U.N." and she traces her commissions she gets off of sureya 's bodies.
List of people nads has stolen/traced from:
Tsuzukikun DracheaRannak meago and several more but these are the ones i can recall off the top of my head.

Nads6969 is a tracer and a thief and you shouldn't pay her for traced commissions :)
She doesn't even attempt to do any of the hard work herself (as in learning basic anatomy)

I've had my work stolen on a few occasions, especially in recent times. It's not a good thing to have happen to anyone, but in my experience, it feels kind of... I don't know...  In a weird way it was kind of nice to know that my art was good enough to be considered being stolen, and yeah, I know that may sound odd... Although the persistent feeling of knowing people can and will try and do such bad things out of spite is enough to make me want to watermark and put a digital fingerprint on all my artwork. It's enough to make my blood boil... Luckily enough, there is something you can do in the event of a thief/troll stealing your art.

I have heard people say it was kind of nice at first and that usually changes to being angry because they end up completely disrespected and ignored when they make the reasonable request to have their property removed. It is a huge shame that people do this!
