Alright, so it's very simple what's going on with me right now. I've left dA. The reason is a bit more complicated. You know when you go into hot topic and they have all those t-shirts that are obvious ripped designs and artwork? Well I recently opened a store selling my work on t-shirts, mugs, stickers, you know, but then a few months ago I was reported on the website and a bunch of my drawings were taken down for theft of design. This caught me completely by surprise, these were MY OWN DESIGNS I'd worked very hard on and I couldn't believe I'd been accused of something like this. It wasn't until the next week that I found out what happened.

When you sign up for dA it allows for your work to be used by third parties FOR PROFIT. I'm not saying this is dA's fault -yes it's slimy- but I did agree to the terms, when I was 15 - long before I could produce work worth a dime, or before I actually needed the income. My work was taken from dA and now someone else is making money off of it. I am in school, I have to pay rent every month, and I NEED the money that I am/was making off these designs. If I didn't then I'd continue to post here, but I've lost about 25% of my income thanks to this.

I have been taking things down and will continue to, and I advise that everyone else who needs to make money off their designs will do the same before a third party claims it and has you remove your own artwork. Again, if this does not bother you them don't concern yourself with it - this message is just for people who don't want to see others profiting for stolen work.

Thanks you.

Hello visitors! I'm Tennessee11741, but you can call me Tennessee or Tenn, it really doesn't matter ^^ I'm on deviantart as a college art student with hopes of becoming an animator. I am only 19 years old and I have a lot to learn, so feel free to critique my work and tell me what you like and what areas I can improve in. (I'm also getting my degree in criminal justice to be a police officer so I have a solid fall back)

I'd love to chat with every one of you if you'd like to speak with me! So comment on my wall, send me a note, whatever you want ^^ Thanks!
