Hey people of the internet.
Just a couple of minutes ago, ~dwuff
informed me that my most recent sketch (which happens to be fan art :/ ) has ended up on Reddit. www.reddit.com/r/gaming/commen…
Some of you know this one:
Since it also ended up on Mr. Edmund McMillen's tumblr edmundm.com/
(Edmund, you rock hard good sir), it's rapidly gaining lots of online attention...
Which is great, I mean, fuck yeah!
...but it may also be very bad.
After seeing this link imgur.com/sexgCR2
in the thread, it may be possible that someone is gearing up to sell it as merchandise.
I know I shouldn't really sound upset since... well... I don't own the rights to either Super Meat Boy nor Scott Pilgrim, but because the art still belongs to me in a sense, it's complicating things quite a bit. We all know how terrible art thievery is, how it feels when another individual takes the credit for the hours you spent on YOUR work and to top that off, is profitting from this.
I placed a watermark on the image now, but I fear that it may already be too late. So if any of you are registered to Reddit (I know I'm not, not planning to either), please link back here or give the appropriate credit.
I know it may sound a little dumb, bitching about a piece of fanart, maybe I'm just being paranoid... but you would feel the same, right? Help a fellow creative out, please?
Keep it metal!
And for the record, Edmund, you are an inspiration.
