Wisdom Teeth Removal

Hey guys! Today I had my wisdom teeth removed...so I won't be drawing for awhile...I'm really sorry for the inconvenience.

It hurts so much!!! Aiyy.

I'll be back up and drawing soon though don't worry! I'll be stuck in the house soon so that's all I'll have to do anyway. XD Thanks for the patience!


A Few Words on Stealing


I know none of you have done this, but I wanted to touch on the topic of stealing. Recently people have been using my work or claiming it to be theirs. Claiming my work is your work is not okay. Even just posting it in their gallery is considered stealing, or "claiming" to me.

If any of you see someone using my art please let me know. A few of you have been kind enough to alert me when they've seen it happen. So thank you!

Another note. A fellow deviant just yesterday took a commissioned piece I did,

(this one: Commission: Ophelia Vio OC by steffy-beff)

And traced over it to create a "new" character.

You can see this here: i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn… (which I thought this was quite funny)

That is stealing! Especially since it was a commission, and someone PAID for it. I confronted the person about it, and they removed it, though I never got a proper response.

If any of you would like to use my work for anything, please please ask me! That's all you gotta do. If you'd like to trace over my drawing for practice or help creating a character, just ask. I'd just ask you to credit me. It really isn't hard...I don't understand why some people just take.

It really isn't that big of a deal right now, but if I let it slide and don't try to prevent it, it might get worse. I know none of you would steal from me but I'm just putting this alert out so if you see anything, let me know.

You all are such lovely people. Thank you for helping me protect my work before this, and in the future. c:

:la: I love all you watchers! ♥



So again, thank you all! I'll be up on my feet soon hopefully, typing this out is helping the pain. Heh. XD Thanks again for all your patience! ♥

Yeah, having your wisdom teeth removed sucks XD Also, I can't believe people would actually steal your work =O I mean, that's just terrible. It really isn't hard to credit someone for their work >=(

Hey! Between sending you that message and now, I sliced open my leg and had to get six stitches, so now I really can empathize; based on the exact experience in the past, and my current experience XD
Anyway, when I first read about people stealing I just thought you were being oversensitive about people "stealing" by using it or posting it without express permission or something. But people actually saying it's theirs? Not even giving you credit? That is unacceptable. Crucify those people who steal maliciously, and chastise the others.
On the bright side: At least it shows that people like your art enough to want to say it's theirs =)

Oooh, wow, yeah, that's just as bad if not worse! It really is disrespectful! -sigh- I fear that being disrespectful, rude, and mean is simply ingrained in humanity.... Oh well, what can ya d? =P

Eh, hehe, it's not bad! Honestly, I shouldn't have mentioned it =P Already got the stitches out (today, actually) and it's pretty much healed. See? No biggie =)

I can't believe I missed this journal, especially when I saw the piece today ! Although I'm glad to hear that they've removed it, but there's no guarantee that no one else will be tracing, or stealing more of your artwork.
Oh um, actually I'm kinda curious, is there a need to remove the wisdom teeth ? Because I've heard a lot of people removing it, but I just don't know why I guess ?

That's true. I'm just glad people are helping me out in tracking thieves down. (:

Well, wisdom teeth can cause trouble if they grow in badly. If they're impacted, they can hit your other teeth and move them around, and that can be quite painful. You don't NEED to get them removed, but it's most likely best in most cases. :0

I see c: So far mine haven't seem to have any problems, so I might not remove them for now.. maybe int he future, since we don't use it to chew our food at all.

I always take point commissions. They're just closed right now because i have others waiting for me to finish theirs.

Plus, i'm healing from a surgery.

So thank you for your patience.

Surprisingly my wisdom teeth haven't grown in yet however I'm only 15 so I have a few years before I have to suffer through mouth pains. xD

Congrats on successfully nailing down an art thief- easily at that. Sometimes they can be pretty tricky to talk to let alone convince them to take it down.

I don't know if everyone in the world does get wisdom teeth, though? :o I mean, my sister's in her twenties and she's got no sign of wisdom teeth.

Yeah, some people might have hypodontia (I think this is the correct term ^^;) where they have fewer teeth than normal (Or sometimes more than normal). So they either don't have wisdom teeth or the wisdom teeth they do have grow in normal and replace molars that aren't there because they didn't grow in properly for what ever reason.

It hurts so much. I was TERRIFIED of the IV needle...but then i was knocked out instantly lol...i'm doing pretty well, lots of jello and ice cream! my boyfriend even came to the surgery and stayed with me through the whole day..c: so i'm doing ok...

yeah, i really don't think the guy meant any harm by it, but he copyrighted it his art and like..no. haha..it would have been perfectly fine if he credited me y'know? i wouldn't mind it! :0

About 80% of my teeth had to be removed surgically 'cause they wouldn't fall out normally. Sometimes it sucks have strong roots. x'D One top canine tooth fell out twice and grew back in again, I think it's safe to say the dentist was confused. |D Even though I have experience with getting teeth removed on a normal basis, I've heard wisdom teeth hurt about 3x more than a regular tooth. Hopefully I have enough space in my jaw where I don't need to get 'em removed.

I agree, I don't mind if people use my art to help them but if they don't credit, it makes me a little unhappy. I've made a few bases that are open free to the public to use and I specifically say multiple times in the artists' comments comments to credit if you use but still I'll see the completed base with no credit to my name what so ever. :c It's to the point I have to say to credit me on the base itself but still I don't see much of an improvement. Oi. xD

Wow!!! That sounds like a nightmare!! :c i'm sorry...how does your canines grow in more than twice?! you have a lot of teeth?! O____O xD your story made my morning! so strange.

yeah, it makes me feel good when people credit. like the icons i make, i say "credit isn't required, but i appreciate it". guess what? haha, almost no one if none credit me in their signatures. which is fine! but it would increase business and traffic on my page (: and i need to get my name out there! even if it is just as a pony artist for now. of course i can do other things, but ponies are popular right now and imma stick with what i like drawing most. xD but yeah. stealing is a no no. there hasn't been much of a credit improvement for me either. xDD

I had my baby tooth, lost it, adult tooth grew in, lost that one and then another adult tooth grew in. xD So I have the normal amount of canine teeth, I just lost and grew one in again. It is pretty strange. xD As much as I know, I haven't heard anyone else who had their teeth do this.

I joined dA about three years ago (I had an account prior to this one, I only moved to change usernames before dA implemented name changes) and I was primary a Pokemon artist. Now I draw Pokemon, ponies and regular animals too. :lol: I have quite an array of watchers, that's for sure. xD

I typically credit things in my DevID because I usually use art on my page from other users so I like to keep all credit information in one area. xD

2+2 removal ... and 2 other that ain't wisdom teeths ... true they used some kind of injection to reduce the pain but tbh I was more afraid of that injection itself. Once they were done I don't remember any more pain.
