First of all, sorry if its in the wrong place.

 

But several other users, along with myself had their artwork/bouncies stolen, taken without any credit. Most were of my specific dragons. Bouncies made for me, and I would really not like people to take images of my dragons and put the up as if their own.

Chakuu, Hattori, Scoubidous, xXHallaXx, MarieVeronica, kaylawolfSPAM bubbles5498, Defy, and I all had at least one bouncie stolen and stuck in a post as if it was their own. There were also two made for wildfire87 and Diamond Racer that were stolen, probably from signatures, and placed without permission. Someone's art from deviantArt was taken and recolored to fit what was desired without permission.

 

Admins have been contacted and all teh original artists have too. Scoubidous (Fairy) and I have tracked down all the makers and informed them, and we all agreed to contact an admin or more and make a post. 

 

As one of the artists, this hurt that someone stole my art. Mariella has said teh same, and I'm sure all the other artists here agree. Please don't steal artwork, it hurts us artists. Please credit the original artists and ask permission first.

 

 

Hiccup1155 took our art and placed it in one of their posts, (Sorry if it's mean that Im pointing fingers, I just am really annoyed, they've been informed and yet done nothing. No appology, no nothing) without permission. I hope no one else does this.

 

 

All the artists who had their work stolen, and would like to speak, speak please. I know Mariella has made a speech already, so Mar, take the stand :)

It's quite sad, considering how long it takes us to make these. Mine take ages. 1flower's rainbow ones take hours to even do, and now, they have been stolen, and now, we just have to wait.

 

As I am one of the artists, it is quite heartbreaking to see this happen

I can't even imagine how you feel :'( As a person who writes, even if someone writes a idea that is vaguely SIMILAR to my own, I freak out. But you guys...someone is actually stealing your work, and taking claim for something that isn't rightly theirs D: If I could do anything for you guys, I would...I really wish I could :(

I have been made aware that

I have been made aware that there is at least one thief among us. When they put our art, bouncie dragons, and other work in their signature, they stole more than just artwork--they stole the time and effort we put into our work, along with glory that should have been ours.

 

For those who requested specially made, customized images, that thief took awake the novelty and uniqueness of that work of art. It's not fair for either the original artist or intended recipient.

 

As an artist, I know what it feels like to have something stolen... And it really hurts.

 

Art theft is wrong, and should not be tolerated whether art theft is mentioned in the forum rules or not. It is common courtesy to ask permission before using anything that is not our own, and this applies to art as well.

 

If you happen to admire someone's art and want to use it for yourself (either in its basic form or edited) then you need to ask permission. If the artist says you can't, you can't. If they say you can, then you should provide credit unless specified otherwise. (Meaning, you need to say something like "Made by SoAndSo" and/or leave their watermark intact).

 

Please, ask permission for using other art. It doesn't matter if you found it on Google, or if you photoshopped it. The original artist still deserves credit where it is due.

 

If you ever catch an art thief, please inform the original artist. They can then confront the art thief. And if necessary, it can be taken to the admins.

 

Thank you for reading,

Mariella.

Dark Snow's Back Story

Dark Snow was captured by Dagur in her early days when she was just learning to fly so it was easy for him to catch her. Dagur made Dark Snow a slave to pull things that an adult should pull... not a juvenile. Vamp, a viking from Berk, had been flying on her Stormcutter, Xyafizz Dreamer, to scope out where Dagur had been keeping Dark Snow. Then one day when she felt was the right time, snuck out to go rescue Dark Snow. Instead of letting Dark Snow out of the cage she was kept in, Vamp took Dark Snow to an unknown island, far from Berk, and let Dark Snow out there. She was bind-folded so Snow didn't know who it was rescuing her. Vamp didn't see Dark Snow for 2 years, when finally she visited the island again, not expecting Dark Snow to be there. To her surprise, Snow was there. She was very hard to get close to, and Vamp had noticed that there was scared tissue over her eyes, from Dagur. Vamp decided she was going to train Snow, so the dragon wouldn't have to be afraid of all humans anymore. Vamp knew how it was for Hiccup to train Toothless which was pretty easy considering that a tail fin was gone, so all she had to do was get Snow's attention with fish and hope for the best. She flew over to the island and brought a couple fish, and made sure she had no weapons on her. Vamp knew how Toothless had coloration to his eyes and could see the pupil for his expresions. Dark Snow is different, her eyes are completely black so Vamp doesn't know what emotion Snow is feeling which made it difficult for her to train Snow. She then got an idea that if Snow shows her teeth and/or growls it is dangerous, and if the teeth are retracted and makes a coo sound it is good. Dark Snow's training took 6 months because of all of the stuff Dark Snow had to go through because of Dagur. Now that Vamp had trained Dark Snow, she has one mission... to keep Dark Snow away from Berk, and Berk away from Dark Snow. They believe that Toothless may be the very last of his kind, and Vamp is going to let them think that.

 

Dark Snow's Daughter, Paint Pallet ^-^

A few months after Dark Snow was captured by Dagur, little did they know, Snow was pregnant. In the cage that Snow was kept in, she gave birth to Paint, a very colorful Night Fury. No one knew where the colorful genes came from, since her mother is greyscale colored, maybe from her father... if only we knew who he was. When a viking that Paint had never seen before, rescued her mother, Dagur started using Paint to his advantage, to try and track Snow and the unknown viking known as Vamp. One day, Paint somehow started to change color, and the Berserkers on the ship thought that it was a different dragon. Somewhere down the line of Paint's ancestory line, she inherited the genes of a Hobblegrunt. Maybe she could use this to her advantage...

Casper the Slitherwing, made by chameishida

Name: Casper

Gender: Female

History: Vamp was glad that fall had finally came around, and she started to adventure in a forest that she had never been in before, and heard growling and purring coming from what sounded like a dragon. She grew curious and got closer to the sound, and found out that it was indeed a dragon rolling around in the leaves. "Aweee." Vamp said and laughed a little admiring how much fun this dragon was having. The dragons eyes then popped open, looking over to Vamp wondering if it should consider her a threat. The dragon jumped up and Vamp took a deep breath, calming herself and standing her ground. Vamp has never been afraid of dragons, and she looked at every detail that covered the dragon as it got closer to her. The dragon then stopped for a second and tilted its head wondering why the viking before it wasn't afraid, since it had never had that type of reaction from a viking before. It then continued to get closer and still, the viking stuck her ground. Vamp then held her hand up to see if the dragon trusts her enough, and showed her trust in it as she did that. Ever since then they have been helping the dragon riders take down the dragon hunters, making sure that there will be no trace of them in the future.

One of the worst parts...

 One of the worst parts, is the fact that they took the link, then uploaded them to something like to their Google+ account, chakuu had pointed that out. So when she made a new link and deleted the old one, it stayed for them.

 

I really hope the admins do something about this :(

What is this 'subject', and why do you require it of me?

I have not yet had a problem with having any of my special bouncies/dragons stolen, but I wanted to post to say that I support you all!  Whenever I get a new image of one of my dragons, I always give credit to who made it, as I want to show my appreciation.  I think it's great that everyone is so often willing to share, and that it is just despicable that people would want to take advantage of that kindness.  I understand not being able to make them on your own, as I am not a great artist, and so would much rather prefer to have them made, but stealing them?!  If I see any images that don't belong, I'll give you all a shout!  I may not be a visual artist, but a writer is an artist all the same, and we artists need to stick together!

Spheres of Influence Teaser

Stoick ran right at the huge lizard, bringing his sword down on the edge of its wing.  It hissed, breathing a torus of fire into the ceiling, adding to the growing inferno.  Deciding that it was finished with all this, the behemoth violently cast Stoick off, lifting its wings.  It lashed its tail to clear room for takeoff, knocking Valka away from the cradle and out the door.  With a leap it was gone- taking most of the ceiling with it.  Stoick panted, forcing himself to stand up from the pile of burning wood slats as his eyes streamed.  His legs wobbled slightly as he regained his footing from his short flight into the ashy wall.  *creeeeeak*

Outside, Valka was sobbing in horror.  “Where are they!?”  Gobber yelled, running up.  

“Still inside!”  she cried.  Without a word, he charged through the door and into the smoke stained red with flames.  He didn't think twice about risking life and his dwindling amount of limbs to save his best friend and chief.

Valka continued to cry from both fear and smoke as neither man returned.  All the while, there were the raging sounds of battle, roaring dragons, and above it all, an even louder roaring of flames consuming freshly cut timber.  As she listened to the creaks and cracks of deteriorating wood, her heart sank.  The walls had started to fall.  Moments later a lumpy form became visible through the smoke.  Gobber was returning with Stoick leaning heavily on his shoulder as the final walls collapsed inward.  “Whe- where’s Hiccup?  Where’s my baby boy!?”

Stoick looked like he could be barely conscious, but what was left of his bushy eyebrows fell.  “Gone.”

 

 

Alpha's Heir Teaser

“It seems you’re more valuable than I thought.”  He spat on the ground, and I saw a slight tinge of red.  “You’d better be worth it.”  He snapped his fingers, and the changewing zeroed in on him.  “Rorrim, hold her down.”  Instantly the dragon was at my side, his long antennae wrapping around me.  I struggled weakly, but each time I moved his grip tightened, and I stopped moving as my lungs burned as hard as my side.

His voice was a low growl.  I could do nothing to hide my fear and pain.  “Dragons that are some of the strongest and most dangerous in the entire Archipelago.”  Then, unexpectedly, he backed off.  He stopped a few paces away.  “And I know why you track them down.”  He pointed an accusing finger at me.  “I know why you look for strong, rare, powerful dragons.  You are supplying the poachers.  You’re a trapper.  A dragon trapper.”  He spit on the ground again, disgusted.  “And even worse, a thief.  You’re a rotten-toothed, half-troll, DRAGON STEALER.”  His last two words came out from between bared teeth, a pure, unrestrained look of hatred twisting his features.
 

Come meet the various other dragons that habitate the Northern Valley Dragon Sanctuary, like the few below:

 

Storm Surge and Tempest, made by the incredible Strawberryfiz, and Tinscale, by the wonderful Amazonite!

And another wonderful round of thanks to Reiraku!  ^^  This time, we present Snuffle Snort, the adorable and graceful Raptortongue from Alpha's Heir.  She's also my little "shoulder rider".  ;D  These graceful beasts are incredibly flexible and light from a skeleton made of cartilage.  They also have the unique ability to photosynthsize- to generate energy from the sun like a plant!


 

 

 

And another of the Alpha's Heir dragons makes their appearance!  This is Jetstream, the leader of a pod of Shark-Winged Fangtails that live in the Northern Valley Dragon Sanctuary.  Fierce and fast, they are nicknamed the "night fury of the sea".

Thanks again Reiraku, you rock!

 

 

 

 

Everyone, say hello to Munchball!  She's an adorable little dragon known as a Deceptibite.  You may know her from Alpha's Heir.

Many thanks to Reiraku for making this image of her!

 

 

 

 

 

Give a warm welcome to Stealth!  This Grapplewing is as aloof as she is mysterious, but exceedingly loyal.  She'll soon be making her debut in Alpha's Heir! 

Thank you so much Reiraku for drawing her!

It pains me to see other

It pains me to see other artists like myself have their art stolen and given no credit. I at least give credit to free art to use like Rae's stormfly bounice. My friend actually stole one of my artworks, colored it, printed copies, and sold them saying they were hers. I quickly told my school police man and he quickly took that care of, I did evently forgive my friend, but it took such a long while. You see how trust can be divide when friends or people do this! An idea should be that when people recolor an artists work, they should ask the owner if it's ok. If they say no, so be it! Work for your respect, don't steal!

the wise words of:

It was only a mater of time before something like this happened... people here need to learn to ask for permission before using others artwork or property! There isn't enough awareness on this site that taking and using another persons creation/belonging without their knowledge or permission is NOT ALLOWED!

 

Just because they are doing this online doesn't make it any less stealing!

 

-sigh-

I had to put up my own subject about something similar to this a while back...

Oh well, good luck getting justice.

This is very disheartening to

This is very disheartening to hear...I was considering starting to make my own free bouncies...

Currently I am working on completeing 5 animated Flightmare bouncies that were awarded to 5 random forum users...I will be very upset if someone steals them...they are intended for the winners, and the winners alone.

 

Its sad that people just use what they please, not taking into consideration of the time and effort that goes into art - let alone digital art thats animated.

 

The two bouncies seen in my signature are linked back to the deviantART artist, who is allowing others to use them as long as a link back is present.

 

I do want to clear one thing up, as I have had one or two bouncies made for myself - are the bouncy artists requiring a credit source? It does not state on their threads...some artists do not require it if they are free..just wondering, because I want to be sure credit is given where it is due.

I personally ask for credit, and do get annoyed when I dont get it :/

 

but what we should all try to do (especially those who make bouncies that are extreemely detailed and dont want stolen AT ALL) is put our names on it, like in the corner of it

Im gonna start doing that on my bouncies, but the person's name on it so no one else can use it :)

And for my animated stuff, I signature on it (like on my Flightmare Drawing)

 

Make sure your signature/watermark touches the actual drawing, painting, etc - there is a way to edit it out if it is free standing or far away from the actual art piece. (take it from me, people get a little desperate)

Yeah you never want your

Yeah you never want your signature/watermark to be too bright and eye catching, or else it will take away from the art piece itself.

 

The new one there is perfect - not too bright or distracting, but still visable at the same time! :)

The one before it, I had to zoom in 400% to see it. XD

I am so angry...

This is exactly why I put my name on my newest Toothless drawing.

But, seriously? I drew 24 frames of my Alpha Toothless Bouncie--which took hours to draw--just to be stolen?

-insert subject here-

Truth is that the site is full with stolen artwork.

I mean it.

People who steal it unchanged from the web and say that 'they found it so long ago so they have the right to use it'. And even after they are confronted they fight and tell the people to 'troll elsewhere'. And people even side with them.

Or people who use these artworks by editing their colors. Same there. They are defended.

Some if not most of the bases you find in the artwork section is stolen or traced without giving credit to the original artist. They claim they made it and claim that those who confront them about it are 'trolls'.

 

The problem is that most of these people are children who dont know how to reference and credit properly, what they are allowed to do and what is considered art theft.

 

Another problem is that the admins ignore this part of the site, not caring about all the stolen artworks, bouncies. So I am afraid that no matter what you do, the admins wont care about your stolen artworks. In the end you will have to stop them yourself if you can. or tolerate it....

 

SoD needs forum mods who deal with this issue as well.

I had no clue this was happening

Whoa just whoa. People taking artwork. I mean I get the taking images from movies (like cloudjumper) and photoshopping them to fit your SoD dragon and OC's but stealing art work. I recently requested a bouncy from defy (the night fury one) and was the 2nd to last one to get one before she closed the requests. I credited her for the bouncy she made me of dunkelrot. It is magnificent and it's really sad to hear people do that. I will start having a computer signature for art and will keep an eye out for art theives. One artist to another that's just wrong. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also if you google search stormcutters SoD (I wanted to know if the hackers are still that stupid) and you go under images you will see lots of the things we put in our signatures and on topics. All links lead to the forums. I was sorta shocked to see some of these things. I think this is were the theft is happening

I have a lot of Horse Ocs and thats all i seem to draw now a days. Oh, i also got a puppy.

That is well said senpai and it's true that people shouldn't steal our art, and if someone steal my art, it would made me angry that I won't accept art thief request.
