So after some super unfortunate instances of having my work stolen and passed around as free, downloadable "doll bases", I've decided that DeviantArt might not be the best place for me anymore. Although the DA staff has been awesome and got the stolen work taken down within 24 hours, the PMs and arguments from other deviants that followed have totally shocked me. Apparently there is a large community of people on this site that believe that DA is a resource for free stock art, and no amount of arguing is convincing them otherwise. They argue that by putting my work on here, I am consenting to having it stolen, altered, and passed around at the thief's whim. Not cool, and I'm not on board with that, or being harassed by the culprits and their buddies.
So, thank you to all the people who have followed, commented and fav'd my work these past five years: your support on this site has been awesome, and I am grateful for all your feedback and love!
