already flagged this person and dmca'd some of the pieces i've found.
still working on a "how to take down art theft"(on gasr, imvu, deviantart and tumblr) kind of thread, so artists and non artists know what to do in these cases.

hi hi :/
I received a message via deviantart that someone named "Shiniya" is using my one of my sold Dp. Can someone please check cuz I can't view her/his page as i don't have the access pass :/

their page is blank, nothing showing there. Also cant find them through imvu search, you can try imvu-emporium but my virus scanner blocks that site for me.

:: Oh lord your dp!.
I couldn't find this person via normal search as well, I thought it was probably due to the access pass. I just asked the person on DA, to provide me with some details of the theft. Still waiting for reply. :/

I just saw this omg. How do you actually dmca an imvu album my first attempt was not so successful because they were asking for product catalog when in fact I wasn't reporting about imvu products.

Im pretty sure the one she's using in the layouts (saxo text) is by @Tell

I thought so too but who knows xD Ive seen it float around gasr somewhere but I dont remember .-.

Pretty much almost all dps in that album are from @saxophonia
, except for that filtered one, the Rihanna drawing was also made by @saxophonia
I already pmed saxophonia just now and she's gonna try to dmca the whole album if possible, and i also want to give everyone else a tip if you ever get into this situation.
Even though some people hate watermarks, it's best to put your own imvu / gasr / instagram or artist name on it to prevent others from using your work as examples.
So for example " made by capsule@gasr " or " made by capsule @ imvu" (most theft happens on imvu or instagram).
On this example i used instagram, gasr and imvu (depending on where you will sell or use the images)
I'm going to be doing this from now on as it also happened to me in the past, and this makes it easier for others to contact YOU as an artist incase they see the image somewhere it does not belong. And makes it easier for customers to find the real artist of the image as well.

do you overlay white text to make it look so faded? I've seen watermarks look too clunky/visible but yours looks great.
| Sat Aug 27, 2016 10:05 pm|
Personally when I watermark I use Overlay and a 5-30% Opacity depending on the color scheme in the dp.. I try to make it as transparent as possible but just enough its still readable@Capsule
Should I make a watermarking tutorial for those who dont know how? I wanna help the art community cause it frustrates me seeing art theft .-.
-Sudden reminder to watermark an album of forgotten watermarkings XD-

I made it white with black outlining, sharpened it and used no layer effects and only changed the opacity. As VeIeIIa said it depends on the color scheme.@VeIeIIa
Definitely if you want to do that then please go ahead. It would help so many people. If something gets in your way and you happen not to be able to create a guide for it then i'm up for it.
