Ain't this some shit?…

Now, I get that budding artists need a source of insparation. Hell...I was 15 once too....

but I worked my ass of to get to the level of skill that I have today.  Tracing is not going to get you there...

Here's the deal......I have ONE skill set in the world...ONE. And that would be my art skills...which I earned in time, sweat, tears, long hours studying, trial and error...

This is my one skill set....AND I DON'T LIKE IT WHEN PEOPLE STEAL FROM ME.

This chick has till I get back from Naka Kon, or I'm going to light her page up. (more so than I already have)

-A very pissed off Ami.

Posted how angry this made me on facebook.  God damn, but I love the Ami Army so hard.  

The image has been reported and her comment section has been made very much aware who the original artist is.

I can sleep well now.

Well it's no longer up since I clicked on the link and got a 'page not found' error message. So at least she took it down.

That's awful that someone would do this. I can't wait to see you at Naka-kon!

Wow...after several comments and reveals she didn't do the work, she continues to respond to the newest comments like she did do it..and tries to give -advice- to those asking how she "draws that well"...

Derp, she said she drew it, so maybe you stole from h... oh I'll shut up now. The Rob Garnito is strong in this one.

amen sister... I will give you massive huggles at Naka... and if we were in St. Louis, I'd buy you White Castle... Hopefully she at least puts a link back to your original and gives you credit... cause otherwise, she's a twat... or hopefully it'll get taken down.

I'm sorry this happened to you... :( How can we help and where can we report it?
quamp Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2013
Looking over her gallery, I've see a lot of traced images.
Reported and reported to :iconantiartthieving:. When you report it, be sure to use the tag "Permission issues." Technically, there is no rule against traces unless proper credit is given.

Oh, and link back to this journal as well.

BTW, if it's any consolation you're the 25th artist this year I've seen a journal entry complaining about something being stolen.
