Hey all,

I was browsing for information about one of my favorite apps and found an online guide that had art on it I recognize - of Yao-Chi. I do not see credit for it anywhere. Looking around, I'm see a couple more pictures being used too. It is possible that these artists were contacted, but in my experience, highly unlikely. So I'm sharing this URL in case you know how to contact these artists or are one of them:


Here is their facebook page, which appears to have lots of random photos in its album - dunno if that's 'okay' with folks, but if nothing else maybe those whose art is being used on the actual site can contact them through here:


If it turns out they have permission I apologize. Oddly this does not appear to be related to the official game at all, so at least there is that. Just a fan page I guess.

That piece is done by Andrea Koupal, done as a commission of Yao-Chi through a now defunct forum known as "The Napping Cat's Dream".

There are some reposts on the Facebook page, some of which are from D&D.

Yeah :/ Not really sure how facebook album rules work, or if that's 'okay', so I wasn't sure what to say about that. I know it annoys me. Do you think I should try to contact the company/artist for those pictures as well?

As far as I know Facebook doesn't allow that sort of thing but they're so lazy when it comes to reports I doubt it'd be taken care of.

yeah. I don't think someone would allow a company to use their personal character.
Nov. 7th, 2011 04:12 pm (UTC)
I certainly wouldn't.

In particular around furries- I'd be far more worried as a COMPANY, myself... D:

i doubt the company itself has anything to do with it -- Dragonvale's dragons look nothing like that artwork. They're all super-deformed and cutesy. it's probably just that website that nabbed the artwork to zazz up the banner on their site.

Oh yeah, this is definitely not official stuff here. The company in charge of that game seems to have more integrity than this, heh!
