I bought some designs off of this thread: http://www.furcartzone.com/index.php?topic=14535.0

Looking at all the replies, I would like to hopefully find the original artists of the pieces I bought so I can confirm if I should be trying for a refund.

> Found all of the pieces I needed to know about. <


Any information would be up help. <3

Searching for original artists of recently purchased designs?
«Reply #1: July 23, 2011, 03:00:52 PM»
Unfortunately, there have been a lot of stolen designs being sold here as of late.

If you've purchased such a design and would like to get in touch with the original artist to ask about permission to use the design, please post it here.

Please understand that while I regret having to say this, neither we here at FAZ nor the original artist will be able to extract a refund for the artwork.  This thread exists for the purposes of gaining closure on the status of the purcased artwork.

Found info on the on I bought--thank you!

I would very much love to keep these designs, and I am hoping to find the artists, in the hope that they would give me permission to keep them. However, I'm more than happy to remove them from my characters should they decline to do so, and I will pursuit in attempting to get a refund from the player who sold them to me.

The following are what I have purchased:

<<Found>>

Any information would be appreciated! :).

Edit: I sent an Animated Portrait Space in payment to the character, "Pae"

Would also like someone to tell me if this belonged to them as well, or someone else? I don't expect a refund or anything (except for by Pae if it doesn't belong to them!)

Same goes for me. :/ I bought a design also from that thread.
(I had placed this design on the name "Monsta" when I had bought it from the following person)
They used to go by the name "Physic" I guess. (Also, in whispers, they told me they own the alt Scum as well.)
I paid a life catten for this following design:

Physic was the old alt (corrected only so that "Physics" doesn't get a lot of angry whispers!) name.  :)

Offline Kelly

Yeah, my bad, changed it sorry.

@Kelly; I've seen that design before. It's going to bother me too. I'll try and find it again it was either someone on Furc's design or on DA. If you find it before me can you tell me who owns it because this is going to annoy me so bad lol.

Offline Kelly

Thanks for the heads up Dang! I'll start searching around for it! Any help would be greatly appreciated guys!

I purchased a design too and, obviously, not looking for a refund from the artist. Pae, definitely. I won't use the character until this is cleared up.

I paid 20 GD for the following design, and I contacted them on Physic as well.

Artist of that is Glider on FA and owner is Bonnii at FA, who is quite good friend of mine and I know she doesn't play Furc (I bet she doesn't even know what Furc is).
So I suggest you to ask for refunds. :/

Also I bought this design from this very person; http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6097829
I'm very sad if this is stolen too, I got very attached and I was building a fursuit of him too. :/

It's such a shame, I drew two pictures of him, built him a site, developed a storyline... everything =/ Good thing I managed to stop the port being made for him

-sigh-

I hate people like this

Could anyone tell me who the original artist of this design is? I know it was part of an adoptable set over on FurAffinity as I've seen them before, but for the life of me I cannot remember who they were by.



Thank goodness I hadn't used it yet. I was almost about to commission a port until I saw the thread.

Thank you TinEye !!

With a little search with TinEye and trying to find the artist of the character pic I bought (although the person I bought it said that she made it... :/ Not so sure about that anymore), I did find something !

Same goes for me. :/ I bought a design also from that thread.
(I had placed this design on the name "Monsta" when I had bought it from the following person)
They used to go by the name "Physic" I guess. (Also, in whispers, they told me they own the alt Scum as well.)
I paid a life catten for this following design:






Not sure about other pics but the first picture seems to be made by this person called MantisPrayer.

Their dA: http://mantisprayer.deviantart.com/
Their FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/maybemantis/

The picture on dA was located in 'Original character art' folder, link to the image is here;
http://mantisprayer.deviantart.com/art/Double-Vision-99476366

This person doesn't seem to play Furcadia (I might be wrong tho) but they play/ed game called Furry Paws and it seems that most of the designs that were made by her (and sold here) seemed to be character commissions made for people on Furry Paws.

I'm sending a note over dA and FA to MantisPrayer about my character, because the lines that were used in the character I bought were her's.
(Here's one character that was made with those lines: http://malamute-musher.deviantart.com/art/Ti-Phillipe-127716649)




Pae has given me this design as a gift.

This character is also made by MantisPrayer for someone on dA. Link here;

beatcakes on FA did this for my design contest and resold it (with my blessing since she did not place). According to the link here, Bonnii owns it rightfully:

I know it's not her, she doesn't play Furc (or hardly knows what it is). :v
I bet the seller found out her Photobucket account where she has uploaded all her characters she has. :/ (Because all those images of her characters are high res versions)

Actually, if you go to the adopt link by Caccia, she links Bonnii in public comments to the high res individual pic of the one I bought from the scammer. :\

So it could also be that they snag them from comments when they search "adopts" on FA.

Either way, this sucks for everyone involved...
