I'm almost insulted that my art is never used for this crap. Almost.

OH AWESOME. They stole some of my stuff and so did their friends. High five.

I've had a few people contact me about my artwork being used on their profiles. For the record, I don't have any problems whatsoever with them using my art in this way. It's almost cute.

There are a few of these kids who are taking it a step too far, impersonating other people's characters and such. Anelalani first brought this problem to my attention, she has been dealing with a person impersonating her fursona. I do think they finally changed their profile to something different though.

I'll go through these profiles and see if I can contact some of the artists involved.

Haha, it's kind of funny if you think about it....I mean, aren't they sort of Facebook rping other people's lion king fan characters? I don't know.....I guess I"m weird but I find that a little bit amusing. Course I'd probably be a little annoyed if any of my stuff was up there, but hey, at least they aren't selling the work or making profits off of it. Good luck guys!

"Lol I'm Ahadi. Im gonna make a Facebook page on how much I obsess about wanting to be a cartoon character."
On top of that I found one of my photos of Ahadi. It's not even good, it's from years ago, but I still can't stand how they steal something that took me 3 hours to draw and claim it's theirs.
Why, this seems like the year of trolling.

Unfortunately it seems they're getting away with it.

Technically, they aren't claiming that they drew it at all, they are claiming that it is an ACTUAL photo of them XD

Hehehe, that's what I mean. xD It's kind of funny....I hope they aren't very old though, otherwise it goes from funny to a little bit sad....

This happened on myspace before too, years ago. It was a huge thing but ultimately there really wasn't anything we could do. This just seems like a repeat of the same events sadly.
