Whats this about? Apparently someone on Ebay (by the name of yukei) has cropped one of my images and is trying to use it to sell one of the figures from it. That figure being the Dyaus Pita from God Eater above.
My Image: [link]
His (or her, the fact their seller's avatar is some sort of metrosexual cat person, and that the seller is also selling womans shoes and such I can't be certain) auction: [link]
Granted, it may not look as bad NOW, but recently I contacted the seller, asking them kindly to remove the image, and that I wasn't asking for a commission or what not (though I should, given they are trying to make money with it) but instead of doing just that, they took the picture back into photoshop. The original picture had THE FUCKING SCORPION TAIL IN FRONT OF THE RIGHT LEG STILL! This "new" image has the arm of another figure shopped on and darkened in an attempt to match. To the untrained eye it looks fine, but I can easily tell the new arm is from a Privithi Matha figure, whether he took that from the official stock image or FROM MY GROUP PIC AGAIN is up for debate. And to add insult to injury he/she/it placed THEIR OWN WATERMARK on the new image! I tried being nice but now I have contacted Ebay customer support, hopefully they can provide a solution (such as I don't know, revoking selling privileges?).
Also, as stated in my original picture's description, my image was the FIRST and ONLY picture of the Dyaus Pita figure I could find ANYWHERE online.
I don't like to put watermarks and such on images, I REALLY don't, it takes one out of it. I know several of my friends have dealt with art theft in the past, and I thank you for your understanding.
EDIT - I was able to talk to Ebay customer service and the auction, was removed! Victory!
