Dear everyone, Mixi, the least you could do is credit the person who drew this first after all these arguments. You don't have to badmouth everyone who is asking you to do so.
Well, there are other people copying art somewhere in the world..nothing to do about it..if you want to copy art and not at least give the source of what inspired you, then have that attitude if you want..
Ahaha, look at all these little bullshit whining comments. It's quite funny really. I swear to god, if this happened in AAANY other fucking fandom, no one would've cared. But since its the good old brony fandom there always has to be some sort of fucking drama and stupid faggots always fucking complaining about some little fucking thing that's not a fucking big deal. Okay, we get it, she referenced it and didn't give /credit/. Boo fucking hoo. Go find something else to whine about.
But you know whatever, it's giving her art more views anyway.
I know this is months old and I'm bound to get a 'y u repl i dun cre BAWWW' comment but honestly, enabling theft is not cool. I don't care how far up her ass your head is currently wedged, you are NOT helping her. You are a shitty friend if you think your behavior is ok.
Please grow the fuck up, I hate stupid people like you.
Hahah, of course, you can't have an Internet right without the term "sweetie" being used in some way. Typical. Also, I have nothing better to do with my time.
Most of them do, yes. Same poses get recycled, and same styles do too. Then again, you can say that about every type of cartoon art. Referencing is stealing, yes, but at least it's not someone just posting something of another person's and calling it theirs. I've had this done many times, people referencing and stealing my art. I can say, though, that I'd rather have someone reference it than steal it. (Doesn't really make any sense, but whatever.)
Your words hurt!!!!!!1!1!1!1!! You're making me wanna cut myself!!!1!!1!1!1!1!! Baaaaaaww. *Sheep noise.*
I don't understand why you replied when none of this matters anymore, since everything was taken care of.
I'm just going to state my opinion on the situation again in a calm manner, so I apologize if I offend anyone in advance:
Don't try to blame the entire brony fandom for this little falme war since I've seen it happen in other fandoms as well.
I'm not going to bother asking for her to put the reference anymore since it's obvious that she doesn't care too much to fix the situation maturely, but please understand that people don't find it right for this image that might possibly be referenced to *CuTTyCommando's drawing becuse this one got more views the "original" despite it being around a little while longer.
I would be extremely offended if my own fan art got referenced without credit if it bears extreme resemblance to another one. In fact, it happened to my best friend!! That is the only reason why I'm "hating" on Mixi by kindly asking her to reference back or talk to the other artist to clear things up.
Yes, it's possible that both images used popular poses & characters, but the fact that it looks similar to each other & caused this confusion means that one artist might be accused of tracing.
It sucks that Mixi got the bad end of the deal, but can you blame her? She seems like a decent individual with great talent! I don't follow either artist & really don't plan to, but I do feel like a little acknowldemetn to tyhe other drawing by saying in the info "I did not trace [link], but there's the link anyway to shut you guys up" is better than letting all the name calling continue to happen by her fans against an entire fandom.
If you want send me hate comments/replies, go ahead!! I am just sick of how defensive people are getting over Mixipony's art without giving that much thought to CuTTyCommando.
TL;DR: I AM NOT TRYING TO CALL MIXI AN ART THIEF/TRACER, NOR DO I THINK THAT ANYONE HERE IS AN IMMATURE IDIOT FOR DEFENDING HER. "POPULARITY" & FANDOMS DOESN'T MEAN THAT THIS CRAP DOESN'T HAPPEN ANYWHERE ELSE ON DEVIANTFART OR THE INTERNET. [ERSONALLY, I JUST WANT HER TO PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE THE OTHER USER BY CLEARING UP THE SITUATION PERSONALLY SINCE SOME PEOPLE ACTUALLY BELIEVE SHE "PLAGIARIZED" THIS.
I am sorry if my "rant" on the situation gets anyone offended, but I sincerely sorry that two talented artists have to deal with this situation all because of someone made an innocent assumption on a tumblr blog. I will not reply on this specific situation after this post, so I wish you all a good day & the best of luck on calming down this unnecessary shitstorm.
Tis good art. The other is good art. They don't look alike aside from the pose, and poses aren't really anyone's property. Wether she referenced it or not is beyond the matter. All of you are just being jerks now, and your comments are just getting meaner. Mixi does not, and never intended to, commit ARRRRTTT THEEEFFFTTTT...... So everyone calm down. No insults need to be thrown.
nah... sorry guys but the only thing actually bothers me is you make such a shit storm about this
Mixipony the Luna you did is based in another's draw? big deal! you draw it's cool, you put effort on it and made something with quality (i've seen art thief before) and no sir you aren't one of them.
about the draw: the mouth is funny but that's all keep it up and next time remember to thank to everyone to make your draw possible: google, hasbro, luna, equestria, my little pony, lauren faust, the actal moon, etc, etc
Nah I don't love it, it's just I really don't give a single shit about this art piece to be honest, wanna know the truth?
so everyone can shut the fuck up and stop putting shit in my inbox? Along time ago I made a luna painting yes? and it was for a school assignment so, the only source to find images at school was google images and no where else so i dunno what art piece belongs to who so, I sketched up two luna sketches and used the other for the painting and thought the sketch for this piece that everyone is going crazy about lol, So if anything, I didn't trace, or copy, I just simply found an art piece on google for a luna reference and used the pose.
taaadddaahhhh, now eveyone can shoo and shut the fuck up because I don't give two shit about this drama I didn't cause ahaha, this piece is old, I do way better art pieces now soooo move along~
It doesn't matter how old the art is, or if you care about your own piece or not. It doesn't matter if you do better art now. Just care a little about other artists-if they want credit for a reference, give it to them. That's all that's asked.
Yeah, reference. And here's your lesson: source that shit. Give credit to that shit. Stop acting like some tough girl and just be a decent person and say, "Sorry! I'll go ahead and give credit. Sorry for any confusion." But no, you'd rather be that loser who puts up that "lol no one cur came at me bros" act.
So it's nice to know you're still gonna be that person.
I just wanna say I agree so fucking much with you. Just to shut everyone up why not just be like "yo sorry I referenced for some art in school and yea sorry got the ref from here" And everyone would shut the hell up. But nope she just wont -.-
well you don't know who I really am, so how would you know, I'm just your normal stranger over the internet~ And your someone who has probably herd bad things about me yes? Don't always beleive everything you hear, you seem mature enough to at least agree with me on this one.
