unfortunately what dA says at the bottom is true - when you change enough of an image it’s no longer copyright infringement, just really shitty behavior. Your work has clearly been referenced, but she moved shit around so there’s no legal angle.
I understand that completely
The ‘legal jargon’ put in at the end as the copyright holder & claims under penalty of perjury are put in specifically because deviantart said that they will not delete the copied artworks unless I put it those phrases specifically, rather than because I wanted to take legal action of any kind.
What I’m upset about is the clear lack of interest deviantart has towards artists even though it claims to be a ‘artist community’
It’s gotten to the point where I’ve lost so much energy fighting this for a week that I don’t even care about getting an apology from her or from DA. Am I mad? Ofcourse. furious. Do I understand/accept that DA won’t be any real help at all? I’ve understood that. I’m using the platform that I am fortunate to have to at least let the other artists aware that their artwork is being used without permission because if artists don’t stick up for themselves, no one else will.
hello, just dropping bye to inform you that the person's da account has been deactivated. :) I'm not sure whether da is the one who deactivated it, or the artist themselves did it for fear of being caught though
Ah thank you for informing me !
Thanks to everyone who reported to deviantart ㅠㅠ The original post is now deleted.
I was wondering if you could explain how you do your painting process and what tools you use?
Sorry this took so long to answer, it’s been kind of a crazy few months. I took a series of progress shots. and they’re pretty self explanatory. I go from sketch > color under > color over > adjustment
I use the default photoshop brushes when I paint, generally at 50-75% opacity
I love your "old art" tag so much ;A; how come you separate 'old' and 'new' art like that? I find it rather strange
It doesn’t really mean “Old Art” Tag and “New Art” Tag, but it means more of a Old “Art Tag” and New “Art Tag”, if that makes more sense. I decided to switch the tag I use for art, and it was too cumbersome to hunt down and re-tag all 40 some odd pages of art I’ve already uploaded before I switch the tag.
I will be tabling at Connecticon in the dealer’s room, booth 302! I will be selling my prints, phone charms, and buttons. I’m also helping teaat2am sell her prints since she couldn’t make it. Hope to see y’all you there this weekend!
My friend fallibleheart will be selling my prints at Connecticon for me this weekend! She’s a sweetheart with great art so go say hi!
Chromatic Press just announced two of their new titles for Sparkler Monthly! Gauntlet is the serial novel I’ve been working on. It’s being beautifully illustrated by T2A!
Check it out! The first chapter will launch in Issue #1 July 2013.
Happy to embrace her adult independence, Clio…
Aw, yiss. Our first announced Chromatic Press light novel other than Tokyo Demons.
Eprime is a great writer, and T2A is an incredibly versatile artist. A fair chunk of Gauntlet is already done and it’s kicking all kinds of ass. First chapter comes out in Sparkler Monthly Issue #1 in July.
Read it. It’s sexy and scary in all the right ways.
Sorry for being MIA on this blog save for the convention updates, it’s been kind of a crazy couple months after moving. But there are exciting things on the horizon!
