I tolerate my fans, watchers or people who favs, collects artworks for inspirations, make an adaptation, draw something similar or close resemble to my style or work; but taking my work or even other good artists' work directly and slapping it into your DevART gallery OR even from Tumblr, Reddit, CGHub or whatever art gallery site, blog and shit, without permission, violating my copyright and signature stamp, and not even acknowledging the origin, source or rightful owner of the work is down right disgusting.

You make me lose my respect to you as either a fan, an aspiring artist or an online friend. I trust all my watchers and fans and new visitors, and I don't expect any of you to be perfect, but there are boundaries and stealing other people's hard work and effort is one of them.

Thank you to a noted few who report to me about the art theft. You are awesome, and I love you.

Now just to make things clear, I'm not over the top angry, just upset. I'm just giving a fair warning here and not throwing out names to induce a witch hunt. We have enough hate mails, and trolls and other problems online, so please don't tell someone to go and kill themselves and stuff, that's not very nice. The reason I don't put names here because I don't want stuff like that to happen.

Ranting over.

Onward with the fun stuff.

Damn and your art is so cool and inspirin, and then stupid people have to go and steal...I'm grateful that there's respectful people who is so generous to tell you who did what and such. It's not right to steal people's beloved art and claim it as their own ): That's what happened to me back in high school...I helped a girl out to draw thelead singer of nickleback and later in that day I saw another girl had it and told the teacher she drew it...that damn girl man, never again. It is always goof to keepdepend on such wonderful fans.

Ha - though this post is over six days old, I just complained about lack of crediting about art spam posts at
Mostly they were doing it so they get attention/most notes. So annoying

I hate art thieves. I'm not good enough for anyone to outwardly steal my art... But I would be infuriated if that ever where to happen.
And I can see why anyone else would be too.
If they are so insecure about their art... Maybe they shouldn't post ANY art... Instead of receiving admiration over false art.

that sucks... if someone appreciates something, the least they could do if they want to share it to the world would be as simple as asking permission, and giving credit... 2 things... is that so hard?... pssshh....

Mate, just look at the bright side. If your work has been stolen, it's because it's good enough, flashy enough and just downright awesome enough to do so! In saying that, screw thieves of ALL kinds!

what fascinates me is how utterly offended some tumblr users get just by having the art they repost uncredited reblogged with credit added.

Art theft scares the crap out of me. ...Conveniently, I'm not well known (or that awesome) for it to be a problem just yet.
