Art stolen. Traced. Again.
These cases have popped up so often in recent times.
People still seem to think that they're allowed to use whatever they found on the internet. Without asking an authorization from the owner. By just taking and using it.
The current trend seems to be using the sketches on my sketchdumps as "references" for poses. I never said you're free to do that. Just because it's just a sketch and posted as a part of a bigger collage, doesn't mean you can just grab it, thinking that I wouldn't notice. I do.
I'm so frustrated it hurts. My hands are trembling as I type.
And look, they took Gryp's work too.
I don't usually yell about these things in public and it's very unprofessional to point a finger to the abuser and allow them to get flamed.
But somehow it appears to be forgotten that I don't like this kind of business. I don't want my pieces to be taken advantage of, at least without my permission. If you wish to use something that's mine, ask. And if I decline, you should respect that.
I'll probably just delete the whole journal once I've cooled down a bit. Sorry for the outburst.
