On Copying: The Internet vs Companies

Back when I started deviantART i learnt you’re not supposed to copy (let alone trace) artworks, which is true, and an important lesson. And god forbid you forget to credit the original artists without getting bashed online.
It was until I got employed that I realized people in the workplace don’t even care whether their employees copied or not, as long as what they make sells. These people care less about intended similarities between works than people on the internet.

Moral of the story: plagiarism is a big no-no, but copying? most companies won’t care as much as an average artist on the internet will. Elaborate internet hate is real.

Ruby the Copycat - Emerald the Envy
HELP D: I took something out of a children's book and made something screwed up & twisted out of it

A small random thought that came up when I just discovered Ruby The Copycat in 2013 went like, what if just as Ruby stopped copying for the sake of friendship, she's haunted by this invisible desire to keep on copying Angela and her other friends? It's gonna consume her & slowly corrupt her and stuff and it's pretty scary, cuz to me it's relatable.

What if this envious entity is named Emerald since it's green?

Lol "fuse with me" and gem names, that is so Steven Universe

This was WEEKS ago, when I told Tina about the coincidence on the starsigns of most of the people whom I either envy or copied (or both), and the temporary copycat comrades I had.

Besides Libras I think I envied/copied a few Leos too, while some Leos were my copycat comrades for a certain period of time. I guess to me, Leo swings both ways.

Kamila & I discussing about potential outcomes if Copycatationery became a real social network, both in positive & negative ways.

For the record I've been designing Copycatationery's social network interfaces & putting them on facebook. They're not ready to be posted publicly yet.

Is it just me or are brands starting to look the same on Instagram?
Every brand is so desperate to make their stuff look cool, original and “authentic” that now everyone’s stuff looks cool, original and authentic.
Bruh it's probably just coincidence, cuz most of the time it is. Or maybe both companies purposely & secretly plan this out just cuz they wanna start crap among their fans.

After two days of working, I get what I want.
Time to show it to you!! Weeeeeeeee


It hit me right in the feels cuz this has always been my plotline structure when I was doing comics back in 5th grade. You want something > can't afford it > go DIY (sometimes copy your friend's things) > you got one & it's special cuz you made it yourself.

It's basically my first BFFL comic plotline & I'm glad some other comic artist did this as well. Not just Hapitamus, there are loads of other comics too.

Still felt the need to research on the factors of copiability so I talked to Reisha about it to see what she thinks about this subject. She has some good points.

LookHuman is a shitty website masterpost


Ever hear of LookHuman? You probably know them as the website that has apparel and accessories with catchy slogans and phrases that fit right in with the tumblr community’s sense of humor.

Well, that’s because a large number of those catchy slogans and phrases, along with artwork, were made by tumblr users and used without credit or permission.

That’s right: LookHuman repeatedly and routinely steals/plagiarizes and profits off the work and words of others.

Don’t believe me? Take a look:

  1. Original Post on tumblr:

And this is just a short list of the examples I could find easily.

They have also stolen work from other websites as well:

Original Shirt:



Stolen by LookHuman:


LookHuman is a company that preys on artists. They profit off other people’s work. None of the money from their sales go back to the original artists or originators of the artwork, slogans, and phrases they use. Noneof these people were credited.

Bottom line: See a cute shirt with a catchy phrase on LookHuman’s website? Chances are it’s already being sold by the original poster.

Don’t like seeing companies like this thrive? Don’t allow them to.





122 N Grant Ave
Columbus, Ohio 43215
United States

Tell LookHuman that you do not support art theft and plagiarism, anddemand that they stop engaging in these practices. Refuse to buy from their store until they change their policies and begin crediting the artists whose work they are profiting off of.

Protect artists.

Support artists.

Boycott art thieves.

BFFL: How They All Met
The final project assignment I have to do to end the final semester in Limkokwing Uni in 2011. Based on a comic I did in 2008, which was a revamp of the comics in 2001.

Little Julie wanted to befriend Kree, cuz she's getting all the attention with the new dress of hers. Sadly Kree thinks she's too good for Julie and ignored her friendship handshake. When Julie talked about it to her dressmaker mom, she began making a dress that looked just like Kree's but in Julie's favorite colors, hoping that this would raise the bar and that Julie will gain Kree's friendship. But things went out of plan and she accidentally stole Kree's spotlight as everyone thinks Julie's dress looks better.
In the end Julie apologized to Kree with a basket of cookies and as cliche as endings are, they become good friends. In the end Tari and Petie joins in their friendship walk.

Reisha just thanked me for reblogging one of her posts in Tumblr and she got batshit excited about it... and then she explained to me how the art process goes according to her boyfriend (who is also a badass artist) and lol her envious copycat formula

Old Missions And New Distractions
This idea popped out during a family lunch outing. For some reason it ALWAYS takes me back to the public copying days of when I was a toddler. As discussed in the last Meet R2, I get distracted by babies and animals easily (well that comic just showed babies)

Tools used: Two black pens of different shades, a pencil & a red gel pen just cuz I wanna waste them, and I got lazy drawing digitally on photoshop. Unfortunately since I've got no scanner currently the phone camera quality sorta butchered it but it's still visible. I just edited the writings.
Featuring myself, AmelStrange and her significant other who brought the car.
