|Argh - a copycat!

Ok, Jinx pointed this out to me the other day...|
This "artist" posted this painting on Elfwood:
Which of course is a slightly altered version of my Midnight Fairy:
I commmented on it the other day in her Elfwood gallery, and she has deleted my comments as well as the comments of another viewer who pointed out the copying. I've emailed her and she has not responded. I sent the Elfwood administrators an email, but I don't know how long it will take to have this person's submission removed. Other artists might want to check out her gallery - she could be ripping off other artists!
what a giant tird monkey! people suck sometimes. i think elfwood will probably get it pretty quickly.
Argh - I know! I hope that Elfwood takes it down quickly - I hate this sort of thing!
Oh dear....people like that bug. Yeah, the rest of her gallery, just about every single faerie pose is a Amy Brown copy.
I thought they looked familiar!
She keeps removing my comments and everybody else's comments who've pointed out different infringements...grrr....
what a turd -_- yours is far better.
I was the other viewer, lol. What a rude person! It is SO obviously not her art. I mentioned kindly that it should be labeled "fan art" if she was going to outright copy someones work. She seemed not to agree. Some people....=P
Well, I guess the best thing to do is to feel flattered. Imagine how Brian Froud must feel. I've seen SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many "copies" of his art. It really makes me ill.
Hehe - thanks ;)
There have been other commenters too - and she keeps deleting them!!! Hopeful Elfwood will take care of this soon~!
How annoying! More people than two have commented? She's treading on thin ice there. That is way crossing the line. I have a feeling elfwood won't tolerate that, lol...
If elfwood doesn't do anything about it soon then you might want to make a post at the elfwood rant community:http://www.livejournal.com/community/elfwoodrant/
I notice a lot of the moderators are active there. Whenever someone posts a copycat related topic, the copycat's picture gets deleted right away.
Yay! Lol, what a fun community =) I just posted there! Thank you so much for showing me!
her "fairy play" picture looks awfully similar to a picture in brian froud's "faeries" book. :P
Wow. That is the most obvious clone I've ever seen. Is any of her art original? :P
Poor jasmine. :(
UGH! I know she just didn't! What a dip. Some people don't realize how serious it is to literally take someone's art and copy it to make it their "own." Grr...that pisses me off, as well. I'm going to bookmark and leave "this isn't your work" every time she deletes it. Hehe...imature, yes. Pointless, no. ;)
Hehe - yeah, that's what I've been doing =)
She claims that she's got a ticket pending for its deletion, so hopefully it will disappear within the next few days!
Oh my, that is just terrible! =(
OMG! I'm with Alex! What A Giant Turd Monkey!! :P I hope it gets pulled from her gallery fast! That's just wrong!
