I got a note a few day ago ,from someone whose name I won't divulge in case this gets ugly, who informed me that someone was swiping my work. I checked out the image, let the deviantart member who was displaying this atrocity on his page a note, and it didn't take long for him to write back and express how disappointed he was. I replied, letting him know this was horseshit and that he was using the image without my permission, and after checking out this image again, I noticed that he removed my comment and is now trying to retroactively credit me and pass this butchered pic as MY work, like if I had done it for him.
Looking at it now, you'll see that he now credits himself for the flats, and me for the pic, which wasn't the case this morning. This was apparently posted almost a year ago, and this is the first time I was ever made aware of it, so no matter what he says, he never asked me if he could use it (which I wouldn't have allowed) and never credited me either.
I'm not happy, and that's putting it lightly.
