i've never felt the need to complain about a fellow dA member in a public journal's one to start off my 13th year at deviantart.

this guy ( made alterations to an image of mine and then subbed it to dA. he gave me credit for the original image in the notes. my image use policy (which is clearly stated on my dA profile page) asks that everyone notify me before using my images in any projects. because this guy gave me credit on the original submission, i assumed that he may have just missed seeing the policy on my page so i sent him a note asking that he request permission for any future use of images. didn't ask him to take off the submission. his response? yank the submission off and call me a "nitpicker" and "unfriendly". then he blocked me from sending him messages.

really dude? GET A GRIP. for a guy who calls himself a "professional" on his dA profile, he certainly acted like an ass. is it so hard to reply with a basic "OK"? apparently it is. in his little world of "how to be cool", it's better to make it the other person's fault for being too nitpicky about life. why, i should've just let this slide because there are other shitty people in this world who wouldn't bother crediting at all! my mistake was politely assuming that he was NOT one of those shitty people and would actually respect the wishes of a fellow artist. 

there is a value to my artwork and i will do what i can to maintain that value. this includes contacting people if i feel there is a possibility of my images being used with permission. and if i didn't send you a pissy note with an unreasonable request, the least you can do be nice about it. that's just basic courtesy.

and yes, i'm totally ranting to get this off my chest. rudeness, masked by the anonymity of the internet, irritates me. the guy blocked me so he can have the last line, so he can "teach" me about life. fuck that. and fuck your dick attitude.

exact exchange of notes posted below...

i appreciate that you gave me credit on your deviation…. however, per my policy, i ask that everyone request permission before making any alterations to my images (other than for personal desktop use) and posting it in a public domain.

if you would like to use any other of my images in the future, kindly send me a note first.

thank you,

lol ill take it down.. guess DA has lost it's friendliness over the years. you're literally the first in my 10 years on here that has complained of such an act.

remember there are shitty people in this world, many who wouldn't bother with crediting.
life is too short to nitpick about little things..

unless otherwise noted, all images in the gallery are NOT free stock.
for personal use as desktop wallpaper ONLY.
images may be altered for personal wallpaper usage but may NOT be distributed with the changes for others to use.
if re-posting my images to another website to distribute as is, credit MUST be provided, either by link or name.
please email or note me for permission to use my images in all projects.
