Small heads-up.

ringtailocelot, a journal created TODAY (now deleted), is Yuchi (aka Yuchichan), don't fall for their lies.

http://community.livejournal.com/con_badges/186289.html
(don't bother deleting this Yuchi, I have it saved and will screencap if I need to :3)

Journal created TODAY, posting there requesting a surprise "contest" of conbadges of their "friend Yuchi", the prize being art from their said friend. When I told them just dropping this information on her at the end of this surprise contest would be rude and they should consider a different type of prize, they replied within two minutes or so saying she's okay with it they just asked and yadda yadda. Yeah, within two minutes... I call them out on this bullshit and they delete their journal! Surprise surprise!

Added bonus, two of the pictures in her FA gallery linked were uploaded just two days ago. Awww, convenient.

Just a warning in case it gets deleted/reposted. <3

I never liked those contests. The guy gets a ton of art in exchange for one drawing for one person. Kind of a ripoff.

In regards to her latest FA journal, visible through that link to her name... is it really possible to copyright a "totally original" species like Figers? Or even those lame hangy-badge things she makes? I hope not. :/ I like how she compares them to Sergals, which IMO are tons more creative than what appears to me to be a fox with three or four stripes on its face or something.

I actually entered the contest and sketched something up for her and her mate. I don't know why she would go about pretending to be someone else.

But it isn't hurting anyone what she is doing. I think its a little harsh to post about it on here.

Heh. I love stupid free-art schemes like this. Is it really that hard to pony up the $15-$30 for a conbadge? You really only need one. Apart from the inherent drama, even Zeriara draws some cute ones for a reasonable price. Really...it isn't that hard. Pay money. Receive art. No need to lie and cheat to get them.
leahtaur
Apr. 26th, 2007 04:14 am (UTC)
Yeah, Zer's badges are cuter than Yuchi's, and a lot more well-drawn. Plus the drama comes free of charge! :D

I don't think it's too harsh to post about this in artist_beware because it's inherently dishonest, even though you'd still get a badge if you won. If she's willing to make a fake journal and pretend to be another person, who's to say she won't lie about other art-related things?

Yuchi got the idea for HER hanging badges, as far as I know, from lemonfruitpie. o_- http://lemonfruitpie.deviantart.com/ hm. Damn.

Apr. 26th, 2007 04:35 am (UTC)
...D: She's the one who's been trying to get a free badge outta me for a while by claiming that her money (and her ipod!) were stolen. She also bugged another artist I know for a free badge as well.

And honestly, I think she got the idea of her badges from Rensis' here: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/15843078/

On a mild tangent: Does anyone know if she's a reliable customer? (i.e. Will she pay at all?) She's currently on my badge waitlist.

no matter who she got the idea from, if I'm understanding her journal correctly, I think she's trying to copyright the idea of the hanging badges. o_o or... something? I dont get it XD

Random note (and no, I haven't read all the replies): "figer" is already taken. Quality Lenders in the upper Midwest is currently running a radio commercial about a "figer sanctuary". A figer is really a cross between a ferret and a tiger.

I suppose I was wrong doing this and I guess I wanted to feel better due to all the stress I've been enduring, so instead fo posting it on my page I didn't see anything wrong with posting it on LJ. -sigh- This was wrong of me and I have never done something like this, I suppose I didn't see the harm but I do see it now. Denying it was wrong too and I realze that if I want trinkets of my characters or something done for my mate, I should either do trades or hold a contest of my own.

Alot of stress has been layed down upon me and I guess it led me to doing this. My parents have been really highstrung, exams are coming soon, I'm getting ready to move and one of my friends is laying around with a guy she barely knows and being a friend I'm scared. I guess it's understandable that you guys are mad at me.

I know you may not listen but could we put this matter behind us? I don't like conflict and I was STUPID and didn't think of the harm behind it or how badly it could hurt me.

For those who know me I know you're dissapointed and I'm sorry. As I am new to the fanndom I ask for one more chance. Not the normal 3 chances, just one more. Everyone makes mistakes and this was mine.

Thank you for your time,

I suppose I like doing trades adn whatnot and I honestly don't have any money

Being stressed has nothing to do with begging free art.

..but I'm really proud of you that you came here to apologize instead of screaming and stomping that it wasn't your fault.

I'm amused at the fact that she tries to keepmaking excuses for herself...like "omg, just kidding! It's really stress related!" Hell, I'm as stressed as hell, and you don't see ME posing as someone else to get free shit.

I'd like to see her go through the process of copyrighting her "hanging" badges. I managed copyrighted mine, but I only could because they were a unique enough design to doso. I'll tell you now that its a difficult long process. It's not worth the trouble on THOSE badges. Copyrighting takes a LOT of patience and a good bit of money. It also requires it to be very SPECIFIC about the design.

She can't copyright a Figer. As Thaily pointed out, she may be able to copyright the WORD, but that's about it. And somehow, I doubt that she will, its not worth the trouble. Tiger/Foxes have been in the fandom for years. They're as common as fox/wolf hybrids 9.9


She'll be marked as a scammer until she can otherwise proove herself.

I like how some people are continuing their trend for making excuses for other people's actions. Regardless of her normal personality, the fact of the matter is that she lied to people to try and get free art.

End of. Since Filthy was hardly flaming or trolling this girl I see no reason as to why Anjel thinks Filthy is being harsh and so on.

Nice one debs.
