Today was a bad day. A very bad art day specifically. I would first like to say I feel gratitude and sympathy for a dA friend of mine who is pursuing an art thief who has zero class and admits no wrongdoing. She has put up one hell of a fight against a 'man' who is hiding behind his good standing in the comic industry by belittling and bullying her, and everyone involved, hoping to end the 'circus' as he calls it.

This circus, that he has mostly created by not copping to his actions, that has ensued has now called at least 31 other deviantart artists into the limelight. He has revoked the blanket permissions he gave coloring artists to use his work and now threatens us with art theft claims.

There is something broken here. I feel like one person with a highly questionable code of ethics has blackmailed me and some of my best friends on dA. It is abhorrent and makes ice run through my veins. I am at a complete loss for how to help her or the others involved. I was proud of the coloring work I did with his lines and I am quite certain others were as well. But now the time and energy I spent on the piece is lost.

Why is it so hard for people to play fair. I got into coloring over 6 years ago and it was great. I had fun with every piece I worked on and kept learning and growing stronger. But with everything that happened last year that pulled me from dA to begin with and now with this 'circus' when I finally start getting back on my feet I just feel defeated.

I have been active in one discipline of art or another since my first grade teacher taught us how to paint-by-number. I have worked with ceramics and photography previously. But when I became a member of deviantart to post some of my own photography I was blown away by "digital" artwork. My personal definition of art shifted (more like quaked) and I feel in love with the idea of digital coloring. I purchased my first tablet in the summer of 08 and started teaching myself as much as I could. Admittedly I have not learned as much as I want, but I am hopeful and eager to get better with each piece I work on. I guess you could say I'm trying to shatter the paint by numbers philosophy I learned.
