It's really bullshit for someone to completely try to steal your art and name like that. They're probably just jealous that they don't have an art style and characters as adorable as yours. But I am a little curious has to how you use artwork to get cybersex.
there are sad and desperate people like this everywhere. however, i wouldn't worry about it unless they are defaming your name or trying to sell your work. if you feel like they are doing either of those things, i would try to address the matter personally first. then, if you feel like you are helpless, to ask for advice without giving out a name. and only as a last resort, pointing out the person to all your fans.
i only say this because some people can be needlessly cruel and vicious to others who are taking something away from someone they might be a fan of or even idolize, and it might indirectly make you look bad - even if it wasn't your fault.
don't get me wrong, art theft is a serious matter. but i think most are caught and face the consequences of it, even without the original artist ever being involved or even knowing about it.
Obviously this person leads a completely sad and utterly pathetic life. If possible the person should be reported and if I was a member of that site I would. But I think you're pretty covered on that site. I went there and read all the comments left by people who are obviously NOT happy about the situation and are ripping into the lowlife thief in your name. I hope this gets resolved soon and in your favor (though how it wouldn't end in your favor I honestly don't see). They must either have something against you to be using your name in such a negative manner or admire you in some sort of perverse idealistic way and are trying to live some sick twisted fantasy life as you in this horrid pathetic lowlife manner. May they pay for their theft.
This is extremely fucked up. I can not believe people take someones hard work and blatantly say it is their own. It is sick. You've been probably drawing your whole life and you have practiced and practiced to the point where you created beautiful art. This is terrible and I hope they get what's coming to them.
(I am friends with John Salvino, I go to college with him. The day your one piece got a daily deviant I faved it and then I saw that same artwork on his facebook page. I was completely surprised! Sorry hope this isn't creepy :3 )
That's really...creepy indeed. I hope he/she/it/whatever! Takes your stuff down and kills the account. That's just...ewww.... And people are so stupid! They need to stop thieving! It's really sad that people have nothing better to do than steal other people's hard work. It just really pisses me off!
i commented and stood up for you. Contacted the owners of the site tell them how serious the offense is. I dont think alot of pplz realize how wrong it is to even steal artwork just because its posted online.
your like th fourth person to have your stuff stolen just this week... O_o things are getting worse.. what the hell?? and the link says a 404 error er whatever.. i assume thats a good sign?? what is this world coming too!!!
