March 21, 2016

Hello all,

Recently, brandi3981 brought to my attention a Facebook post she noticed promoting a t-shirt design for sale that included one of my linearts. By the time that I contacted the website that was promoting the sale of this t-shirt design, they had made anywhere from about $1200 to almost $2000 using my lineart without permission.

As most of you know, my lineart is free for anyone to use, so long as there is no monetary profit made from its use. If ANYONE sees anything like this again, whether it be on deviantArt, Facebook, or any other website, I ask that you PLEASE let me know about it so I can address it with the person or company that is using my artwork for a profit. I am NOT asking anyone to attack or harass anyone who may be using my artwork inappropriately, simply asking for you to report it to me.

I have not received any monetary compensation from the website, but they did remove the design and promise that the person who submitted the design to them would be on probation until they could prove they wouldn't do it again.

Thank you so much to brandi3981 for reporting this incidence to me, and I implore all of you who utilize my lineart to do the same.

I would like to put out a few reminders:


1) Only pictures with the word "Lineart" in the title are for everyone else to use

2) This means that any of my own personal character sheets with different poses are NOT available for everyone to use

3) This also means that any of my pictures for the 100 Warriors Themes Challenge are NOT available for everyone to use

4) Any of the tribal designs that I've made up for leaders, medicine cats and apprentices are also NOT available for everyone to use

5) All lineart that people use MUST either keep the watermark on the image or have a link to my account in the Artist's Comments

6) If and when you are found out for having stolen artwork, you will first be asked to either remove said artwork from your Gallery, asked to edit the piece to remove something, or add a link to my page to acknowledge that you are using my lineart. If you do not comply with the first request(s), I will be forced to report said piece of artwork as art theft and ask the Help Desk to remove it forcibly from your Gallery.

It's a bit different when a company makes over a thousand dollars using your artwork and you don't see a single cent of it. =\

I was wondering, who is your favorite couple and least favorite couple in the warriors series?

:iconwildpathofshadowclan:
WildpathOfShadowClan Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
My favourite couples are CloudxBright and BrackenxSorrel.
My least favourite are CrowxAnyone and FirexSpotted.
=)

How about yours? ^^

My favorite pairing that is actually in the book is DustXFern (I kinda wish BirchXApple happened, but then again, pretty much every other TC cat is mates with someone from another clan or is in a forbidden relationship, just too many) and my least favorite is CrowXLeaf or CrowXNight, to me, Leafpool was only mates with him because she reminded him of Feathertail, and he was such a jerk to Nightcloud, who (at least to me) started off kind and loving to him, only turning cruel when he started padding after Leafpool again and ignoring Breezepelt and her.

You get to work in a veterinary clinic? Lucky! That's my dream job for sure.

I'm sorry about you getting laid off, and I hope things get better for you!

I've been working part-time at the clinic for 6 years now. ^^ Now I'm there full-time. It can be crazy-busy, but that makes the workday fly by!

You should make Seekers and Survivors stuff! Have you read them? I think their alot better then Warriors! I still love the Wariors, though!

Just a quick question, have you heard of Survivors? If so, have you thought about reading them?

:iconwildpathofshadowclan:
WildpathOfShadowClan Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, I've read the first book in the Survivors series. It's interesting, there are definitely a lot of questions about what happened to the city the dogs live in, but I felt like it was awfully similar to Seekers.

NiceSpirits Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
Oh, neat, I was planing on reading them after I've finished some mangas and super editions from Warriors. And I haven't read Seekers yet, it sounds pretty interesting though.

I don't really care to dress up for Halloween. I like to hand out candy to the kids with my pet rats on my shoulders. ;) It's funny seeing the adults freak out.

If eer I do wear anything, I just put on a mouse mask I own. I'm not sure where it's currently located, though...

Do you think they will continue beyond the death of Firestar in the Warriors series? I would hope so, but what are your thoughts on that?

:iconwildpathofshadowclan:
WildpathOfShadowClan Featured By Owner May 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I really don't think they will. Firestar began the main series, and Firestar ended it. =)

When I was at a book signing for Vicky (one of the Erin's), she mentioned a sixth series of Warriors. I think it's called Dawn of the Clans. In this series we go back in time to where the clans first start. What are your thoughts on that?
Reply
:iconwildpathofshadowclan:
WildpathOfShadowClan Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm intrigued, and I definitely will be reading them, but it's sad to think that we're saying goodbye to the characters we've come to love over the course of 24+ books. I'm thinking that we're jumping back to the Ancients and their split from the mountain, and how over time they split into five factions/Clans.

What is your biggest pet peeve about dA?
Reply
:iconwildpathofshadowclan:
WildpathOfShadowClan Featured By Owner May 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmmm... Well, to be honest, I don't really have something about the website itself to be irritated by. There are a lot of features I know people complain about that I don't use... though thinking on that, Points are probably my biggest peeve. They're only useful on dA itself, and once you've converted your real-life money into them, there's no going back. It's kind of a waste.

Hmm, interesting,:) I actually like points, because then I have currency I can earn without spending a lot of money or any at all.XD And a lot of people accept them.:)
