Happens a lot nowadays doesn't it?
People randomly saving pictures of other's anime illustrations , then posting it at their own wall without bothering to credit the original artist.
Or some are even as low as to claim it as their own.
But anyway , I don't know why , but I'm feeling pretty pissed even though I suppose it might seemed like just a trivial issue.
So here's the thing -__-
Previously my younger imouto came to me asking me to help her draw a girl for her school something project.
So I did it anyway , was in a hurry but well , it's my imouto , so why not. I'd probably charge others if they ask me to do something like even a simple doodle when I'm busy anyway.
And what happened next was , when I asked her how did it go the next day , she said , "Oh , I gave it to my friend , she likes it and she wants it"
I was like "huh why?" (though technically speaking I'm burning inside)
She said, " Uhm , well you drew it at the wrong side of the paper , so it can't be used , my friend wants it so I gave it to her"
So next thing was , I went about stating about these copyrights issue and how the heck can she just randomly give away something like that.
But knowing youngsters , I bet she has no idea of how I'm very particular when it comes to my own works copyrights. As do many of the artist here , I'm sure of it.
I soon let that go. But then just a few moments ago , I saw her friend posted that image on her facebook.
It doesn't states who drew it or anything at all. What made me even more pissed is the comments and likes.
In the comment :
1st comment : Who drew this? Don't lie to me for I can surely say it's not by you.
2nd (my imouto's friend) : You think one's skill won't improved? It's not like I only know how to draw guys.
I talked to my sister about it , she said "nah , my friend's joking" , Fine , joke or not , I'm not liking this at all.
And what's with the 27 likes?
Christ sake , when I post anything at my profile , only around 6-10++ likes (usual count)
Damn am I not dealing with this well -___-
Gomen if I sound like a dumb kid who just had my precious toy being snatched away from me. But somehow , I'm pretty mad at the moment.
Guess I better just peace out for now before I decide to rant on more about this crap.
***Update : Link of another website where she posted. Instagram : instagram.com/p/USvDJvEjj1/?fb… Feel free to copy paste and let google translate do it's work for those who can't understand chinese =/
Sorry to put the link up BIG and BOLD , for the more I see how even my rushed crappy doodle is getting all the good comments and likes whereas this uploader isn't even trying to say that it does not belongs to her , the more I'm burning up here.
I see her saying "thank you"
, so where's the "but actually it isn't drawn by me"
Uwah ! Ima watashi wa chooo okotte imasu!!
Though previously I'm just a bit angry of my sister for just giving away something I actually find time to draw for her.
Now's definitely more than that. It might be just a crappy doodle , but apparently I'm very upset that the so called friend she gave my work to isn't a very honest one!
Many thanks to all your comments and concerns , my anger is pretty much almost gone by now o_OI must say I'm quite a lucky person here to have such supportive friends/watchers (whichever you prefer to go with) like you guys.
Anyhow , thanks for those who helped me commented on her Isntagram.
Seeing that she finally said the art wasn't done by her is sort of a relief for me.
So don't get too worked up over this issue now =] At some point I think some of you actually felt angrier than me. But chill now , as long as she states that the art isn't done by her , I'm fine enough with that. Credit me or not , it's up to her already. I have more important matters to worry about --> have to attend to my assignments now (top priority at the moment) Finishing my human anatomy sculpt in zbrush , if I happened to have a little time left after that , might post some new simple sketch works.
Don't expect anything too great from me , I only have so little time to spend with my own manga style illustrations nowadays.
Thanks for your patience ;___;
Arigato again to those who commented =]
