I draw things. For fun.
I draw things that I like.
I draw things that are beautiful.
I draw things to make them beautiful.

I draw because it it makes me happy. To create something is a beautiful process.

I'm also related to this guy: :iconchesterocampo: which reveals the O in KTOL.

How does one even compare to that?!

wheew.

Look at this! Mane 6 in another country?!? askthefillypines.tumblr.com/

Also, check out my highly informal tumblr accout: catchandweave.tumblr.com/

Where I post WIP's, Scrapped concepts, and Alternate versions of images~






































































Interests
This is a repost. This guy backed down on his word never to harass me again. It's time to fight back.

This Guy has traced my work. Re-uploaded it 4 times, after I've reported it 4 times. And now he's openly harassing me, and threatening stealing my art.

Personally, I've had enough. Fuck this guy. 




***Long post ahead! TL: DR at the bottom. <3

I've had it. I tried to be a nice guy. I tried to avoid this drama shit. But it's getting ridiculous. 

You could call me petty and vindictive for this post, but honestly, I've been a saint in all this. Let me tell you a story!

Let's begin with a nice meme:
89ppi by ApplesToThe

So, I made this drawing for Patreon on November 12, 2016:
Large (1) by ApplesToThe
Some nice guy paid me $10 for this. 
And I sure am proud of it. 

Guess what came up on December 23?

Let's Call this trace The Traced Upload By TonyxMarshall2

  Large (2) by ApplesToThe
BUT WAIT! That sunset looks familiar too! 
BAM 
Ambris Daily Sketch #14Sunset Shimmer in shorts~

So what did I do?


On December 23, TonyxMarshall2 made the original Traced post (Now taken down). Neither me or Ambris was credited. In fact, the traced picture was claimed to be 100% original in the description. 

When I learned about this, I tried to be discrete about it. I commented on the original photo, stating that tracing and claiming ownership was a stupid thing to do. I said it was a dick move, and I filed for a DMCA. The post was taken down within 12 hours. 

Since then I was ready to let it slide. It was just the one thing right? It was settled nice and discrete, and no drama had to unfold. 

But don't touch that dial now, we're just getting started.

Re-Upload #1


A few days later, and everything was cool. It was nice being somehow compared to someone as good as Ambris. We were both in the same trace after all!

But then I come across this:
Sci Twi And Sunset Shimmer By Tonyxmarshall2-dasyy by ApplesToThe
>100% HANDMADE! WOW! OH MY GOD!
I think you meant hand-traced there, buddy.

AND LOOK AT THAT DESCRIPTION:
New Canvas by ApplesToThe
(Disclaimer: In the picture above, I superimposed my favorite line. Also under this English text was the same text in Spanish. Otherwise, this image was the unedited, legitimate description of Trace Re-upload #1)

Never were me or Ambris EVEN REMOTELY MENTIONED. In the comments of this post, people were calling him out on his scumbag tracing techniques. And he'd just spit out the same bullshit excuse of it being a 100% original work in tribute to his waifus or some shit. 

Oh. My. God.
Of course, I reported the picture, and once again, it was taken down within 12 hours. 

You would think that a sane person would call it quits by now. But ladies and gentlemen, the person who traced me and Ambris here is no ordinary individual! Ohhh no, sirs. He is far from done!

Now, at this point he is very aware that I'm the one taking down his traces. He blocked me on everything. But I could still see what he was posting tho. And what he posted on Dec 27, 2016 was actually a really good workaround. 

Re-Upload #2 - here's where it gets personal


Now I didn't think to save this one, but bear with me here. Imagine the original trace, but Sci Twi is literally just blacked out with a rectangle vector. I don't have pics of this one, but I have people who have been helping me deal with this guy who will corroborate my testimony here. 

here is an APPROXIMATION* of what it looked like:
Approx by ApplesToThe
*(Which means not the real thing. This is just to give you an idea of what it looked like.)

Now I COULDN'T report this photo on DA right? since it doesn't technically have my art on it. Thanks, Broken DA reporting system. :/ 

Here's the catch: The description had a link to a facebook post that had the real photo. It might have been bad news for me, IF I DIDN'T HAVE A DECENT SIZED BRONY FACEBOOK PAGE. You better believe that I went super public on this one. Third time's the charm right? i have this fool enough chances to privately back down. I was getting sick of it. 

Now thanks to ZUCC, I had the facebook post nuked within an hour. That rendered Re-Upload #2 useless. And so he took it down on here as well. 

Points about Re-upload #2
-Neither the post here or on Facebook credited us in any way.
-He still claims that this was 100% his original work. 
-Due to the way Facebook's DMCA system works, he saw who reported him. which was me. He saw my account. and immediately started making personal attacks on me. 
-He called me a chink because of my profile picture. I ain't even Chinese, bruh. (On his facebook page. Taken down.)
-He has taken, and used my personal facebook's banner, for his own use, with personal attacks to me. 

As seen here:
Owo by ApplesToThe
just to give you a taste of what I've been putting up with.

Also, could you all please report his page for personally harassing me? He stole my personal profile banner for fucks sake.

www.facebook.com/SunsetShimmer…


Not to mention, this guy is threatening my Patreon business. Which is the only way I'm dragging myself through college.


RE-UPLOAD #3 - The End of Evangelion 


Finally, out of what I assume pure frustration, he re-uploaded the original pic on here. I once again had the ability to report that, so I did. I also uploaded the patreon version on here, in hopes that it would stop him, finally.

NOPE. it wasn't the end.

Epilogue:


Now we are caught up in my side of the story.
So far:
  • He traced a lineart from me, uploaded it claiming it was his, and when he was confronted about it, his only defense is that he was making it better by coloring it in.
  • he has called me just about every derogatory word under the sun.
  • He claims my patreon is a huge scam, and that I'm just some money hungry prick because I wouldn't let him get away with tracing shit that doesn't belong to him.
  • He has harassed my private profile, and has posted my facebook banner publicly. 
  • He still has yet to apologize for everything.
  • He still thinks he's the victim in all of this. 
  • He thinks that by tracing and coloring in me and Ambris' work, he's making it 'Better', and that he is completely justified to do so. 
  • The Funniest part: He thinks I'M jealous of HIM. For tracing my art in a shitty manner. 

I Thought it was over. 


We had reached an agreement. That shit lasted about 12 hours.

This fucking guy.

Look at this comment chain: 






Urgh. No means no, fucker!

Thanks for reading everyone!

The Guy who traced me and is currently harassing and threatening me: TonyxMarshall2


Also on: www.facebook.com/SunsetShimmer…





===============================================================================

tl;dr:
Some guy traced work from me and Ambris, claiming it was his own work. He has re-uploaded 4 times, and I've successfully taken down every single post. And now he's personally harassing me, my business, and my name. 



Personal heartfelt message to the pitiful sub-human trash that has traced my work:

"Don't test me, boy. I'll pass every time. Now fuck out of here, and learn how to make art for real. Or don't. Just don't involve me with your shitty traces ever again."


~Sincerely, Pshyzo <3


P.S. The aim of this journal is catharsis. I want my story to be heard, and now I'm ready to let go. I'm not trying to incite trouble. No matter how good it would be.

I honestly don't know. 
I was thinking this month, but then I started work on this huge comic involving Sunset and Twilight doing stuff, and that is just taking all my time to make. 

Maybe mid-January?

Hmm... I dunno about that.
Y'see that sketch was one out of 5 sketch requests I did for this month for my patrons. I think that rendering 1 sketch would make the others feel like I'm choosing favorites among them.

So, probably not. :C
