Art Thief

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 22, 2017, 8:33 PM


It has been brought to my attention that several works of my friend Ashley_Urikoshima as well as a work of my own has been stolen by :iconwatcher5876:

They state they are too lazy to credit... which is dumb.

All of the pieces stolen from me and Ashley involve Rose. 
There are more in their gallery that they aren't posting credit for.

Please let fellow artists know if their work is in this person's gallery since they have stolen several pieces from other people too.

And once again I will repeat for everyone. Please don't steal art especially if you refuse to give credit. 
You may not think what you're doing is harmful but some artists rely on people getting traffic to their work with their name on it so they can be hired for work.
So please, if you love the art work we all make for you, don't repost ESPECIALLY if you won't credit.
Otherwise you chance losing your favorite artists. 

Please think before you repost! 

Stay safe my friends and much love to you all! 
And of course a very Happy Turkey Day to all my friends! 

Love and Hugs, 
Rose

I didn't see any other artists I recognized. Different circles I'm sure you understand. But I still wish DA had a way to report.

I don't recognize the other art either. And I agree, I wish DA had a way to report the person as a whole but unfortunately the only reporting that can be done is for like harassment or something, there's no way to report them for art theft unless it's on each individual piece and done by the artist.

Left the following message:

     Not trying to be rude here, but DA rules under etiquette clearly state, and I quote: 

     "Respect Your Fellow Artists

     As a vibrant and growing art community DeviantArt welcomes all kinds of original artworks; but we MUST insist that the artwork which you submit be your own original works.

     Your deviations must be your own original creations and you may only use resources which are considered legitimate and legal. Submissions which make use of works without proper permission or licensing
     by the original author will be removed as they come to the attention of the staff. This policy applies to all Deviation submissions, Scrapbook entries, and the preview images used for written submissions."

     As you have uploaded countless artworks from others without consent from the originals or even giving credit, you are violating DeviantArt's terms of service. I'd just like you to think on that.

Lets see what they do.

Well as of now I just checked their profile and it looks like DA probably pulled all mine and Ashley's works. But there are still a lot of stolen works on their profile. So hopefully other artists will come forward and post for takedowns as well.

They should at least credit you.

Honestly, I wouldn't even really be mad if they would have just given me and Ashley credit where it was due. 
But now that they've shown themselves to be rude, I really just want them to remove the work. I've already reported the work that is mine and I think Ashley is going to report the work that is theirs.

Good. They need to have their theft taken down.

These art thieves drive me insane but most of the time they are just some foreigner that don't understand what they are doing.  Most don't even speak our language and its a pointless battle.

Well they do say this on each of their art pieces: "I just found it online. I don't own anything also I'm too lazy to look up for the source so don't ask me" 

Maybe they do speak English and are just a jerk.

This one more than likely.
