A post about plagiarism…(Left) The original art I did for the In Small Packages community for the prompt “Sam & Dean’s first kiss” - Dec. 2011 (Right) An art posted this morning on Live Journal and blatantly copied on mine - June 2012
What really pissed me off with this kind of stuff is that:
- the artist did this art for a friend and made them believe it’s an original concept.
- they didn’t ask for permission to actually copy my art. I would have said “yes” and very gladly if someone would have contacted me to ask me “I really loved this art of yours, can I make my own version? I could be like a fan art of a fan art”. In fact, I think it’s an interesting concept. There is fic remixes challenges, I would LOVE to see the same thing for art. Asking would have taken this person two minutes and they have no excuse whatsoever because my art is signed, they know where to find me.
