Ripped!

Sun Feb 19, 2006, 9:45 AM
Hey, got my stuff ripped for the first time here on deviantart! Ok, this had to happen. Anyway, I just will start watermarking my stuff, and that should pretty much solve it. Feels kinda weird, but I'm not angry... But people can be really stupid thinking they can post stff without anyone noticing! ;)

Edit: it seems deviantart has taken down the drawing. Thank you! It really was not serious. I think this person just thought deviantart was the appropriate place to post other people's drawings, just ot share them to other (this person never said that he had done the drawing, he just said he liked the character in the pic...)

Kyla, you're a girl after my own heart. Seriously, it's refreshing to read about how you've chosen to be civil with this girl. Don't let her get away with it though. Reporting someone doesn't automatically give them a bad record, it just gives us the chance to explain to them the rules around here. It's only when they've crossed a certain line or repeated the thefts (or other offenses) over and over again it becomes a problem.

:hug: I'm glad you found this out before it got too out of hand.

I totally agree with you. For what I saw, everything makes me think that she has probably confused deviantart with other blog sites, where it's ok to post stuff that isn't your own, if you see what I mean (like posting a fanart drawing of a character you like etc, just for the pleasure of sharing a nice rendition of that character). I noted her, and am waiting for an answer. But frankly, it's not worth getting angry for. I was more surprised than anything else, really! It's not either like someone was taking my drawings, printing them on t-shirts, and sold on ebay!

Thank you for your kind words! :hug:

ppffff... non mais, je comprend vraiment pas ces gens là! pourquoi se donner la peine de voler des images pour avoir de la popularité? de toute façon, il y a toujours quelqu'un qui va se rendre compte qu'il les vole...
pourquoi les art thieves copient des personnes connues, il me semble que c'est pas tellement brillant! :XD:

oui, c'est pas génial... mais dans ce cas, je crois que cette fille n'a juste pas tout a fait compris les règles de deviantart. Elle pense peut être que ce site est comme un autre blog, ou tu peux poster des dessins, des fanarts etc, sans forcément les avoir dessinés toi même, juste pour le partager avec d'autres... Enfin, je préfère lui laisser le bénefice du doute plutot qu'elle se fasse bannir pour rien...

ah d'accord, je pensais qu'elle avait dit que c'était elle qui l'avait fait... En espérant que ce type d'événement ne se reproduise plus, c'est triste de se faire bannir (ou presque dans le cas présent) d'un site parce qu'on n'en a pas bien compris les règles

Dang, that stinks. Eh... I've had it happen to my friends before, though. There was this whole big issue and I ended up getting temporarilly-banned twice for telling the theif that they stole a pic. Oo; And someone else got permanently-banned. And then the dA admins ended up defending the theif, which I thought was really weird.

Oh well. At least you're handling the situation maturely. XD

Oh, and how do you watermark a pic? I'm paranoid about my pics being stolen and such...

:iconkyla79:
kyla79 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2006
I think, for the watermark, you just simply put a symbol or something that is totally your own, and stick it over your drawing. Or for traditional artists, just sign in the drawing directly, not on the white of the paper, where it can easily be erased with the appropriate computer programm...
I didn't want to say her name, because she probably confused DA with any other blog, where you can show drawings you didn't do to share with other people. I told her it would be stupid to get banned if that were the case, so I didn't report her. And I don't want people to go and insult her, and as a result, make her miserable but she eventually will be banned, and other people with her (I have witnessed many times people getting banned whislt their art was stolen. It happened to samantharobinson not that long ago...)

Ah, mur'kay, thanks. :D

And I suppose that makes sense. I looked at the pic you showed on another reply, and yeah, it didn't really look like she was trying to steal the pic or anything, I guess. Though the theif I was referring to actually took one of my friends pics and traced it, and entered it into a contest. >>;

The artist finally took the pic down, but she stole another pic too. I reported it, but nothing's been done about it yet.

ouch... Are we talking about the same person? because I didn't see any other pics after mine was taken down, except something that was obviously done by her...

Did that person take it out of their gallery? Do I need to don ninja gear and bring some pain?

How stupid and pathetic are people? Why can't they just draw their own stuff? *sigh* I'm glad you caught them.

Oh no, I don't want people going and attack her... She did take a drawing out of my gallery, but I think she confused deviantart with one other ordinary blog (where you can post drawings done by others to share them with your friends, if you see what I mean) so I told her it would be stupid for her to get banned if this was all it was, a mistake...

Are you going to use an invisible watermark, or just put it in the corner or something?

I think I'll simply start signing my stuff in the drawing itself. My pen name is "Mara", and that would be my signature.

That's cool, I like pen names better than typed names :p Sometimes typed watermarks are really iffy, I think they look best in photography.

God, watermarking all your deviations must take forever! I mean, the act of watermarking doesn't take that long, but for every one of your deviations, you must find every one on your desktop in order to do it! :( I hope this doesn't happen to me!

Maybe I'll be too lazy in the end to do it! But I think I'll just sign the last ones, as I anyway have lost the drawings I did before end of august, they have all passed away with my computer that crashed... So it's not that many drawings!

I have seen so many people getting banned because they acted stupidely after someones work was stolen, I don't want that to happen. I even once the stolen person getting banned! and some of her friends getting banned too simply because they went to the thief's gallery, and insulted them, I don't want that to happen... ANd I think this girl is young, she probably doens't know all the deviantart rules, and just wanted to share with others a drawing she liked (as she didn't claim it as her owm, she just said she liked that character)

yup, but that other girl gave me credit for the drawing, but in the end, she took them all down, because she mixed my pics with other peoples art, and called them gift art. I Knew about it, and didn't really know how to react, in fact, because she was always being nice to me... here is the link: [link]

no, I prefer not to. Because she probably doesn't even know that's forbidden. She might have though deviantart is a place for sharing art, withtout it heving to be done by yourself. She doesn't say she did it, she just says she likes that character... Maybe she mistakes deviantart for any other kind of blog... And I certainly don't want her to get flamed and such, I know that can make people miserable. I want to give her the benefice of doubt, she is new to deviantart and such.... Anyway, I just don't want for this to go out of hand!

Il m'est arrivé presque la meme chose, "en pire", une personne que je ne citerai pas se fesait carrement passer pour moi (le nom et tout), il avait pris mes illustr et s'etait ouvert son petit compte ici, sur DA, quand je l'ai vu, je l'ai immediatement signalé, son compte a ete banni.
C'est assez radical, mais je pense qu'il ne faut pas laisser passer ce genre de chose, sinon d'autres personnes feront pareil.

:iconkyla79:
kyla79 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2006
ah oui, la c'est clair, il faut sévir... Parce que dans ma situation, je lui laisse le bénéfice du doute: en effet, elle est nouvelle sur DA et c'est déjà arrivé que des gens postent des dessins déjà existants en pensant que c'était permis de le faire (leur but étant de montrer aux gens quels étaient leurs dessins préférés). Ce serait idiot qu'elle se fasse bannir alors que c'était un erreur. Mais dans ton cas, c'est vraiment de l'abus... Mais qu'est ce qui peut bien passer par la tête des gens, bon sang???
