I know an original picture when I see one. This one by far is the best, the others seem not like it was their own work. In matter of fact, it was yours, my apologies that people decided not to give you credit. By far my favorite picture of Raven. Beautiful work :D

This is possibly my number one most stolen piece of work. Not really sure why, but I'm glad you like it. It's a pretty old piece now, but people still seem to enjoy it.

That would be me. It's been stolen so many times that I stopped caring. Nice that you've found me, though.

Well, I hope more people find you, maybe next time you should water mark your work.

TresMaxwell Featured By Owner May 6, 2013
Haha, yeah. This was long before I understood the concept of watermarking. I was in my first few years of high school. Considering it's the fourth year since I graduated from college, it's been a while. Really, it's not like I would have made any money off of it anyway.

Unless they asked me for permission or at least credited me, it's art theft. I don't mind people using my stuff, especially stuff as old as this, but they HAVE to ask me.

Well maybe they couldn't because they don't have an account like you and me.

There are ways to contact people. If you don't have an account, you make one so you can ask permission. They're free and it takes five minutes. Using art without permission is theft. It doesn't matter what it's for. When I wanted to use the Rolling Stones logo, I contacted the man who designed it in the seventies. You make it happen.

Well maybe their parents didn't want them on some random website and they might have found it on Google. I've seen lots of Deviant art on Google. Heck maybe the person doesn't even know this site even is on the internet! You don't konw.

If they found the original image and used it, then they could find the site it's from. That's part of the issue. If someone has posted in on a DIFFERENT site without permission and didn't credit the artist, then there's no way for the next person to find the original artist. That's where it becomes art theft.
Ignorance or laziness is not a good reason to steal someone else's work and use it without asking. If you want to be respectful to the original artist, then all means should be taken to contact them and ask for permission. If that can't be done, then you shouldn't use the art.
Proper etiquette when dealing with someone's hard work is vital. I do not abide art thieves, no matter what their excuse is for not crediting me for my work. These are some of the basic rules of art sharing. Be respectful of the artist at all times. All artists take the risk of theft by sharing their art online and artists that have had their work stolen tend to take precautions to watermark their images so people know who they belong to, but it's not just an artist's responsibility to defend their work, it's that of the viewer as well.

Look, I could argue this all day, but the point is that what most artists want is for someone to make sure their name is attached to their work when it's used. The youtube video poster wasn't gaining any money from my work, any more than I was gaining money from posting it here, but even if they did like the art enough to use it and my work was exposed to more viewers, those viewers have no way to find out who I am if my work isn't credited. They can't follow the work back to me, it's just there, credited to whoever posted the video instead of me. It's fan art, so it's not like I could take legal action, but I still spent hours working on it and a little credit isn't too much to ask.

On a different note:
Google finds things on the internet that already exist. If you see something from deviant art on a google search, often times google is bringing the image from deviant art directly and if you click on the image, it will link you to the original.

Good. I did as well. He/she seems to be a repeat offender. So the more reports the better. I'm sorry he stole your stuff :( .

Great work on the picture, by the way :) . I really love how that looks.

Repeat offenders usually get taken down pretty quickly. I trust Devi to handle it. Thanks for letting me know, I never would've seen it otherwise. It's super old, so I don't spend much time searching for this show anymore.

No problem. I hope it gets dealt with. I know people appointed moderators are usually very capable and take care of things quickly. Truth be told, I'm a mod on another site, so reporting what I can't deal with myself is a habit. But, actually, even though I thought I'd seen it before, I would've probably passed it by if I hadn't seen :iconskidzz: 's comment on the picture. So she's to thank for this one.

I thanked Skidzz as well :) It's good when deviants support each other and report things when they see them. It helps keep the site safe for our work :nod:

Groovy wings, my friend. Gotta admit, first thing I'd do with a power like hers is make wings. The glow looks great, so whatever you did worked! (The hard way makes it sound... painful. o.o)
