If you look at my vectors, there will be a common occurrence between them.

What does this mean?
YOU CANNOT SELL THIS DESIGN.
You cannot put it on a shirt.
You can't sell it on a mousepad.
You can't put it on a mug.
You can't put it on a poster, or a sticker, or ANYTHING.
This is fucking theft.
Someone asked me today along the lines of "Can I put one of your things on a shirt for my daughter". They even put a little heart emote~.
Since I have those two things on all my vectors, and this is a COMMON ask, I said
No no no.
I do NOT allow commercial use of my vectors.
I'm sorry, but your daughter will be without the shirt. I do not condone other people making money off my things when I cannot make the money myself."
because I"m sick of EVERYONE asking this. Oh, yes you go out and make the shirt for your daughter, but then since I have given you permission, what is stopping you from making more and making a profit? So, no.
What happened? Oh apparently they wanted to buy the image/shirt from its creator since SOMEONE ELSE IS ALREADY SELLING IT. And, apparently my reply was SO rash that they have decided to WILLINGLY allow that person to continue to steal my art, and buy it from them, and will not reveal their name or source to me.
They are willingly allowing someone to steal my design to make their child happy, and promoting the fact thusly.
If I could sell my vectors and stuff on items right now, I would. But,for reasons I will consciously leave blank, I can't.
So, DON'T steal my fucking art for commercial purposes.
I had to take down SVG files already. One more fucking event like this, and I watermark EVERYTHING I make, or make it you must buy the image with points to be able to download it. I don't want it to come to that.
Wallpaper artists don't want that, signature artists wouldn't want that, people on ponysquare who have show characters as their images won't like that, vector clubs on DA will not want that nor will they probably accept any.
I have put too much faith in others. The people who have never stolen or anything, good on you.
But it's the rest who have driven me to this.
