¶-I Got a HARD Art Request-¶
I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to get this done for a while now. Can anybody draw a Gryphon for me? Her name is Duskcrest and I do have a reference.
I would like you to keep the same tail and coloring. I know it looks complicated so, you can simplify it. However, I would like Duskcrest to have green eyes rather than blue. And if you are willing for the challenge can you add a frill of feathers of her head? A mane almost leading from her neck to her head. Keep the pattern the same. And, feel free to some experimenting. Whether it's with style, or color choice.
I don't have a fixed appearance in my head yet. When it comes to the pose of the gryphon, I'm not picky. Make it as complicated or as simple as you like. My only request is that it displays a lot of the gryphon.
And if you can, add her name ' Duskcrest' in a fancy don't next to her drawing.
I doubt that this will get any comments, so thank you for reading this and maybe even considering!
Not to be that person but are you Fiszi on Tumblr? Since it's their art and all.
Reposting commission work without any link or nudge towards the original artist- Taking a piece from someone else with the intention to have the character's design copied apart from a few minor edits? It really screams theft to me.
Well, I'm just using it as a reference. I'm changing the pose, the face a little, and really as much as a can plus adding what Wolf wants. But, if you think it is too close to theft, I won't complete it. And Wolf, I think you should put a link or something about the original artist.
Because there's so much artwork around you feel like you don't have to create your own ideas and that it's okay to just nab someone else's? (ideas someone likely paid for, too) without even as little as a small nudge, name drop or link to them? That's a bit silly if you ask me.
I'm honestly not sure what is more disrespectful actually; taking someone's work or taking someone's work and modifying it. I'm leaning towards the latter. Both are plagarism, but there's something just inherently rude about taking someone's idea, changing up a few things and then claiming it as one's own... If that makes sense!
Ok... sorry Wolf I don't feel like I should do it anymore... unless I make up a griffin completly on my own. But it's hard to use a reference like that and not copy it too much.
Taking someone's work, changing the pose and adding some minor frills is still theft. Just because it's not copied down exactly the same way doesn't make it a new piece.
Here's an idea:
Instead of taking someone else's work and hunting around for someone else to modify it for free, how about you go to the original artist and commission some work from them.
Otherwise not only are you taking art from an artist who clearly put a lot of time and effort into creating this work, but if this was a commissioned piece you're also essentially stealing from the person who paid money to have this work done for them.
I can try! I'll change it up a bit to not copy the artist, but we'll see how it turns out :D
Do you want the mane to look like a lion's mane? or were you thinking someting different?
Changing the pose, eye color, and adding a mane are minor changes. It's the same character with a very small color edit and a minor addition. That's like taking a drawing of a person and asking someone to redraw it but change their hairstyle. It doesn't make it a new thing. Same person, minor change.
Like I said - if you're trying to get this photo copied badly enough to have been looking "for a while" to have it done, then you might as well go to the original artist and commission some work.
Creating art is just like any other job and artists should be compensated for their time and work.
If you don't want to pay for work, you don't get to use an image as you please unless otherwise stated by the artist.
in case anyone wanted the link to the original art.
please dont steal stuff lol
side note: those arent even her own designs. thats somebody commissioning her. as in somebody literally paid her to draw their character. so thats like, double theft? stealing a design and art that belong to two different people. bad bad bad
Imagine someone taking a character design you paid someone else to draw for you. That'd feel bad.
This is why artists tend to go rock bottom with their prices, too ):
