UPDATE 1 (June 2nd)
I decided to try to have it removed from Photobucket. I asked politely and provided links to this image and my own. Funny, I didn't think it would be such a hassle to have a stolen image removed but apparently it is. Photobucket wants me to include a copy of the piece (because the one in my portfolio isn't good enough apparently (they say a direct link like I never shared one when I contacted them), my ADDRESS and PHONE NUMBER. I don't think so. Furthermore, they want me to include a bunch of copyright bullshit. It's a FANART! I only hold copyrights over the piece and NOT the character. It wouldn't work properly.
Well anyways, I'm gonna try to contact the person who holds the account. I tried through Photobucket but it didn't work. That's when I made the request to have the piece removed. I managed to find the user on YouTube and hopefully that will work. I just wanna know where he/she found it so I can track the source. If that fails, I'll contact Photobucket again and let them know of my discontentment.
I'm generally flattered when someone posts my art elsewhere. I'll ask the person to either credit me if credit was not given and move on.
However, when I find things like this: media.photobucket.com/image/so…
I find it very sad.
Here's the original: fav.me/d1ixdqu
See anything missing? Look at the first link and the second link. See it now? Yep! My signature was blotched out. Honestly, how rude do you have to be?
The reason why I didn't report it, however, is that my watermark was not removed. Couldn't blotch out her boobs, huh?
I've recieved messages in the past asking me why I felt the need to add watermarks: that's why. I'm more clever at hiding the watermarks now, but that's the only difference. That's why many artists on DA feel the need to watermark their pieces so much that it ruins the wonderful pieces.
Very effin' sad.
