Hey Nar please take a look


Hey, sorry I haven't been on here a lot guys my daughter gets most my time, but I was clicking on a link on Facebook to enter to win a set of Copics and in the comments some guy posted a colored pic and I was like whoaa no way he did that. He snagged one of your pieces out right and then colored it, no mention of you for the lines anywhere, soooo yeah.

Where it's posted is under Free Comic Book Day's page on Facebook

Not sure what can be done, but it's pretty shitty and thought you should know. I let him know just in case he forgot who really drew it.

He replied to it and said he copied it off a painting that he saw.

Re: Hey Nar please take a look


That ninja turtle piece has been circulation a lot for years and I never even knew it. It's on a iPhone app too. I sometimes cringe, wishing they never did that as it's an old piece I hoped to redo. But it got out of hand. I tend not to worry too much about it anymore because eventually, someone *(like yourself) will point it out to them if in case they try to steal credit and even resell it.
As long as he isn't saying "i drew it", I don't care too much. I mean... I think the only thing I'm not too cool with is that my signature has been completely wiped out, which is a first.

I tried looking for that FB link so I could tag myself to his art and my original pencils, but I couldn't find it. Do you have a link to it by any chance? I saw the Instagram one but I don't have that app working on my tablet anymore.

Thanks a lot bud!

Re: Hey Nar please take a look


I will try and get a link for ya but I did post the original image from your site and a link to your site on his post for you like I said was pissed to see someone ripping your art, know your style anywhere. I told him he needs to give you credit since you're the original artist. He was surprised to see the dead Foot at the turtles feet he said the image he drew off didn't have them included. It's still a badass piece man one of my favs of yours. In the same post some one ripped off Ryan Ottly of the comic Invinsible too.

Geez, the nerve of some people, eh? Well thanks a lot man. Glad to know I have buddies out there looking out.
It's definitely not acceptable to take a piece and pass it off as your own or at least have the decency to leave the signature in there.
But I totally get it. Especially these days. We got a lot of kids online who have absolutely zero sense of respect. Anything they find online is free for the taking and doing with it whatever they please.... emoticon

Yeah it's a shame people work so hard on a new concept of something and it just gets ripped off.

Here's a link to your artwork.

Only digital painting of it I found:

I think you and him should have a little dialogue.

Aww you always say that, but it's amazing. Even as someone who draws I think it's amazing. There is so much to like: the composition, the clean arcing curves of their teeth, the face muscles that you just made up(but they look spot on), and most importantly being the best turtles picture ever!!

There isn't a suitably manic smiley to convey my emotions, so this will just have to do:

Re: Hey Nar please take a look


Just to update, I did find a digital version without the foot using tineye. All the links go back to a site called [sign in to see URL] which appears to be some kind of merchandising site. It doesn't seem like the pictures are still there, but the images are still cached. I wonder how many actually sold? emoticon

So I guess the guy could have been telling the truth when he said he saw a painting. Still kinda douchey claiming it as his own. Girl writes: "Amazing, you really captured Mikey's personality", Dude writes back "Thanks Gina, yeah I love all the turtles". How is that not deceitful? Makes him look like such a tool when Justin links the original. xD

Wow.... I never even knew they made shirts and phone covers. People just take things without a care and act as if they're merely stock photos that are free for the taking. It's one thing to save a person's art and even make a personal print for your room or what not. But to straight out bank off it, is pretty messed up...

Re: Hey Nar please take a look


Redbubble has gotten into a sh*t ton of trouble in the past for using copyrighted work without permission. I think, however, because of that, it's easier to get the work removed from their site because they are more wary. But just like with DA, Nar would have to make the request himself since he's the original artist.
