Wisdom Teeth Removal

Hey guys! Today I had my wisdom teeth 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:… (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 >=(

I'm almost healed now!
Yeah, it's stupid and disrespectful to steal...

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 =)

lol! no one yet has said it's theirs, but they post it when i specifically say they cannot repost or use without my's just disrespectful.

and WOW! i hope you get better soon!!! :c

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'm all healed up as well. Yay!

[literal facepalm] Damn my memory! I should have asked how you were faring. I've been extremely discourteous; I apologize =(

But, I am glad to hear that you're healed up! =D Kinda sucks having em pulled, doesn't it? XD

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
