So this morning I woke up and checked DA on my phone, only to find my own art piece staring back at me under someone else's name. Because I was pretty tired, I didn't register that anything was wrong until I noticed a note that someone sent to me informing me that my art had been stolen. Nice way to wake up, huh?
I contacted DeviantArt about it and not long after, the art piece was taken down by the Deviant. She has since posted an open apology, so it seems all is well. It could have been a lot worse, so I'm just glad that it was taken care of so easily. No hard feelings from me.
To be honest, I'm flattered that someone thought that my art was good enough to take. Usually I expect to see that sort of thing with artists like Viria or Burdge, but never myself.
But I want this to be more of a journal about how remarkable
this community is. I got several notes from various Deviants regarding the theft. Since I'm sure that none of them have my page in their bookmarks, I'm sure it took quite a bit of research to find me in order to tell me about it at all. They and some others posted journals to get help from others and to spread the word. That, to me, was the coolest part about all of this. At the end of the day, there are always people who will take the time to look out for each other and to make sure that things get settled as best as they can. To those people, thank you! It's really nice to know that you've got my back!
I'm glad it was sorted peacefully!
Take care, all!
