The artist who did the copy of my work has kindly aplogized for it. I didn't mean to put him on the grill like that so everyone can poke at him.

All is good, I dont mind people copying just give credit and dont sell the copy for money or drugs or anything else. Artist work really hard to do what they do and actually they dont make very much money unless they hit it big or die. So always keep that in mind.

It seems my "Want an apple image has been copied by a deviant member. I hate to be the one to bring this in the light and I imagine the person didnt know better seeing that they are only 15 years old. I take this more as fan art and innocent and however not giving proper credit to the artist who did the original isn't very cool, you can get into big trouble with copyright issues. Also using the exact title makes it even worse.


here is the link to the image..

Why is that?! I keep piling up the inventory, with no takers. I know my work is unique and special, and I believe my pricing is reasonable, and people are always in awe...*sighs*

You are right though. People just do not realize what they are passing up.

Awww too bad he took it off... He should've just edited the deviation and put proper credits.

Poor kid... maybe the big meanies scared him off or something >_<

I'm sure they didn't know. When I was in High school, copying was how I learned techniques. Perfect example: "My first oil" I can only wish that it was from my own imagination, But alas,...it wasn't. I found it in a clip from some art magazine that the art teacher had lying around. I don't even know who the original artist was. I never however, tryed to play it off as my own.

My friend got her art stolen too, someone copied her works, and made a DA account and posted them claiming as their own... i can't believe how ppl could do such a thing. I mean, first they coul end up with serious legal issues... and then the respect of another artist?!
Art stealers/copiers are so sad...

What an artist!!! :heart: ;)

I find it so naive and narrow minded that other members of DA are commenting on the lads work in such hurtful ways.
Whilst I was at art college we were all encouraged to copy, learn and imitate the works of the great masters, we couldnt take any credit for the idea or original work and of course stated the reference.

Copying others work is a fantastic way to learn and progress, we've all done it. Its a shame he didnt credit your work but I'm sure he will in future, must be nice being the source of inspiration thou :D

You'd think people would at least credit the original, especially if it's from somewhere else on the same freakin' site. I think when one of your pics is largely based on a single reference, you really ought to cite that reference.

Yeah, I think he's too young. It's surprising how so many people honestly don't know about things like copyright. It's unfortunate that some accidentally make the mistake and don't realize they're doing something wrong until it's too late :( Well, whether the kid did it on purpose or not, chances are it won't happen again after being caught once :p

I guess that any publicity is a good thing... right? I know that it was harmless and, like I've heard many say, good practice. I just hope that he doesn't continue to go down that path. Whether or not he gives you credit, many people know, and it's not like his version is better.

Well, keep putting that good stuff out there (and pray that others don't take it)!

I see why it was an issue, but I disagree with how harsh everyone was. They all said the same thing over and over, and its a bit ridiculous. You warned him, that should have been enough for everyone else.
Ohwell, here's to hoping he won't do it again.

Well shiet like this happens when we choose to show out art to the WORLD, meaning DA. So is this original? Or did Tagete use reference, because I have never sene the actual movie.


In any case I would have contacted a moderator of DA, it is clearly art theft if you do not give the original artists name. No warnings.


Off topic- I am surprised you did not reply to my message Targete, the one where I said not everyone enjoy helping LESS FORTUNATE artists out.

To be fair, the image was uploaded months before Targete's. He probably just saw the image somewhere and didn't know who to credit. Sure, he should have said "Not sure who this is originally by, anyone know"? but that doesn't equate to outright plagiarism.

Just to let you know, from my many favorites in your art, "Want an Apple?" is certainly the one I like most, because it has not only terrific skill, but also such a dense meaning and soul. Congratulations on your accomplishments, keep it up, JP.

As a homage to you, I'll post it in my gallery so people can favorite it twice. Just kidding again. =P Hope you don't get mad at my terrible jokes.
