Still Can’t Trust Anyone – Really?

So if you read my recent post, you’d know that an “artist” copied (stole really) my art. They used a WIP version of my Dodge Dart entry. They called it their own. A friend on DeviantArt helped me sort out the first problem of copied works. Just yesterday he notified me that a digital entry had been submitted using my art. I checked and found that my drawing was really the only part of the submission that really had to do with the Dart.

So I reported it under “my work used” and “permissions issue”. The could have asked at least. I would have said no because it’s a contest. And if my dart was the main part of his entry, thats more of my work than his.

 

I’ll post some upcoming art info maybe tonight.

  1. Things get complicated, don’t they?
    But I’m glad you mentioned Deviantart & their contests & services. I might like to look into it at some point.
    Best of luck with this contest, & I hope it works out for you to get prints made if you decide to do that.

Please give feedback on my art!
