Hi there! My name is Renee AKA Crimson-Mane and I am an artist currently residing near Brisbane, Australia with my partner DSEast and our two silly doggies. Here on my dA page you'll find some fantasy horses, MLP fanart, engraved glasses and maybe some floppy corgis! However, you never know what you'll find here. I sincerely hope you'll decide to stick around. :heart:

To view ALL of my work, please visit my Facebook page. Not everything I create makes it to dA.

Accused of Stealing My Own Art

Wed Apr 29, 2015, 11:52 PM

Hello all. :)

Some interesting stuff has happened over the past couple of days. Namely, this:

Mare of the Cimarron by Crimson-Mane

Some giftart I made way back in 2011 was stolen from my gallery and recoloured (badly) by a certain person who will remain nameless and uploaded onto their Instagram account. camiif3tt alerted me to the image and I calmly asked them to remove it. They did not, and only when it was made public and began to attract attention did they finally take it down. Or perhaps Instagram removed it, I don't know. But anyway - this must have left them a little sour because they went into the original artwork on my own page and said "This picture has a different name on it! I think YOU stole this picture! :)"


Of course, this artwork is so old it still has "(c) silverbrumby" on it (if you remember me from my old name let me know as you deserve a cookie). I plan to change this as it's been a target for art thieves several times now. But still, I've been amused all day long by the thought of me stealing my own artwork. Should I report me to myself? Hehe. :XD:

camiif3tt came to my rescue by vouching that she knew me when I was SilverBrumby and I noticed a little while later that the accusing comment had quietly been removed. 
But really, if they had paid attention to the artist's CURRENT name when so blatantly taking the art from their dA gallery, maybe they would have known it was the same person. But of course not, they only gave a damn that it looked nice and wanted to paint over it to make it look like their character. Painted right over the watermark with no credit to the original. I guess only an artist has respect for another artist's work. People who recolour screengrabs and others art don't, but I knew that... I think we all know that, because only artists know how much love and time we put into our work... or so it seems. :sigh:   

But I wish I'd gotten a screengrab of being accused of stealing my own art. Hilarious. :giggle:

Thankyou camiif3tt and Zareefa-Arts for your help. :hug:

:heart: C-M

Excuse me, could you please tell me, why did I get expelled from the group "the-SQUEE-group"? THe just did it without explaining me whatsoever.

Do you have commission prices listed anywhere?
Crimson-Mane Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not currently, though I am looking at making a price list soon. What were you looking at getting? 
CivettaBlu Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Honestly, it just depends on pricing. I really can't afford too much, but I love your art.
