WHAT: Art Theft from The Midsummer Knight’s Dream
EXPLAIN: Twilight Saint uses the name woodbaby/woodbabies in tags on dA/Etsy/FA for her Habibis puppets. She also uses the distinct sculpting style of The Midsummer Knight’s Dream so much that at first glance some people actually thought she took a cast of the pieces. I have actually politely asked her to stop on behalf of the company. She blocked me on both FA and dA. I actually asked her to change the style of the puppets. TMKD has a a set style of crossed front limbs and the style of the way the gryphon’s and bird’s legs. Also the way the dragons heads are shaped. It’s been about the same way for around 25 years. There are so many ways to sculpt things like this, but she only seems to copy this style as direct as she can. Proof she uses it as tags:
And yes the company is looking into sending a C&D letter.

EDIT: It was suggested to add these facts:
1. I work for in house production of woodbabies, the company The Midsummer Knight's Dream, so I am involved in the designs being infringed upon.
2. Woodbabies is a trademark for the company, along with Fine Art Fantasy Pets.
3. She is taking commissions.
EDIT 2: Twilight Saint replied to me, I tried to reply back but due to FA's note system, I am still blocked and cannot respond to her. http://twitpic.com/ax9z72/full (photobucket shrunk it down)
So it is known, this never was going to be brought out into the public if I could communicate with her through other means, but I didn't have a way of communication.
