A little off-topic maybe...

Please delete it if it is.
This isn't a bad commissioner really, just some lame teenager swiping pics and dumping them on her site. I don't think she's claiming that SHE drew them. However she did not ask for credit.
I've recognised a few pics by myself, horus goddess and shinigami girl, just to name a few...
I...am not mad about this honestly. It amuses me just reading about the lame bio/story she's attached to our characters. lol.
Anyway the site is Here.

I can't seem to find contact info. If I could, I would at least inform her that what she's doing is rude. She may not realise what she's doing is wrong.
I don't appriciate my own characters being used, but it doesn't bother me alot. But it might irk others so...
Artist's beware has moved!

I see art from Nanuka and Snoitweek too...

Funny how there's no contact information. Makes you wonder indeed..or rather instantly clues you in there's no permission granted for using these...

There is no contact information to reach this person, however, there is a report abuse link. Contacting Tripod and letting them know of this has worked in the past.

The sites they link to on the main page are filled with stolen art as well. I'm going through this one right now, and it's all ripped.. http://shadowdragon65.tripod.com/index.html

I had checked that link last night, and all those artwork you had mentioned had been up and I had planned to go through them myself this morning to see if I recognized any pieces. I checked again just now, and she's left a note that she's moving.

says it moved...

If I were in that situation, I'd be fairly pissed. Unless she gave credit...which (if she has) it isn't that obvious. Report abuse sounds like the way to go if the artists that had their art swiped want to take action...

there is also art from Huskie and Jaime Sidor.
how frustrating :/

Couple of NeonDragon works too.

On some of the pictures where the character's name is very visible she changed -her- character's name to the same thing

I'm thinking they mightve very well based their character off of the picture itself. On many of these, the description is so very close to the picture that there's no way they could have made the character and then just happened to come upon a picture so acurate to their description. x_x

Soo, not only have they used art without any permission, but they've taken and butchered the characters aswell; an even worse thing to do in my book.

While I know art theft is very seriouse business on the internet...

She's a dumb little girl roleplaying with AVRIL LAVIGNE as a character picture. Don't make a mountain out of a molehill when all anyone has is a LOL on their hands.

End of the world -- No.

She's not claiming she drew the things, she left watermarks/contact into intact. We're not talking about people in this retarded fandom that trace/steal things verbatim and call it their own. This one is just a dumb little girl that doesn't know any better.

I'm just amused at the fact that she, fair enough is using my art, but its art of Lady Jeboah's character :/

She is essentially claiming that the characters in the art are hers.
She should at least ask before using it for her own stuff :/

Well at least she didn't erase the signatures... I think she is just clueless about what she is doing, and just thinks they are neat pictures to represent her characters...
