kay.. this is a fat unicorn
i drew it in school and colored it with highlighters but it was so cute that i traced it on my computer and colored it in real pretty 'n stuff

so.

this is for all my friends 'n junk cos i love you guys and you've helped me through a bunch of stuff :'D


and don't forget all of my watchers

love you all D:




EDIT: okay guys, I had no idea how quickly this would blow up while I was gone. I submitted this in high school, but I went to college and got my biology degree (I wish I could be a doctor for unicorns!!!) So art got put on the back burner... But so did a lot of things. I have chronic migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic dysautonomia, and POTs so you can see why it's been so long.

At first, I didn't mind people using this image and stopped caring about who used it because it became literally impossible to keep up with. Now it's 2017 and I'm still seeing my art being stolen. It makes me sad that companies are ripping off my idea.

If you love this unicorn as much as I do, then I need your help! If you ever see it (without the user giving credit to me), please say something to that person, while also letting me know. I'm so tired and I want to draw again, but the number of art-thieves is too high. I've been hiding all my work from this website as a result. If you want more, I'm willing to give it! Please help restore my faith in humanity, at least just a little. Thank you to those who have already done so.

Hello,

I wanted to let you know that I've loved this drawing for years and I often take inspiration from it for other mediums. I've only ever used it for handmade gifts, and I've never made money from it. Most recently I embroidered it onto a dish towel for my sister as a gift. I also shared a picture of the embroidery on the r/Embroidery subreddit, but I shared a link to your deviantart page in the comments.

Did you give your permission to this Company?
Are you okay with that?

This company is making money off of your design. Are you okay with that?

Sprinklexeater, I think you could sue Budsies. You have a good case that your work was stolen! Your image is basically being used for advertising for them. They are making money off of your work. Call a copyright lawyer.

In case you didn't know your drawing is now a stuffed animals curtsey of piper lacy and Budsies.com

Stealing it? Hell people are making money from your picture now... because kids are copying it and sending it to companies who make toys from it. ...

Someone turned it into a stuffy: www.buzzfeed.com/rachelzarrell…

it looks like they traced your work for it.  I'm so sorry about this.  Maybe you've already heard about it.  I'm so sorry.  It's such a nice pic.

I'm not the only one who's thinking of Agnes's Fluffy Unicorn, right?
SirCassie's avatar
Maybe they were inspired by the image :XD:
Since this was posted before that movie came out
