posts a new journal "and if you're wanting to scroll down to either comment box and write hate, stop right now and think about your life. sending death threats to my tumblr account is too much. sorry, i'm done."
dudes don't send her hate messages.
I saw on the failingwind blog someone told her to cut off her hands. art thief isn't any means a reason to chop someone's hands off but I also wish she stopped skating around the problem and just come to terms with what she did, apologized, and stopped doing it. I understand the situation must frustrate some but always remain civil.
-----------Edit: Because I don't want to send the wrong message across, the journal is edited as to not distract people from the point which is to provide the information that's already accessible on the internet. Original written journal is here: [link]
Basically I would like to say that I have found out that the artist
traces and it is a reoccurring event. I've turned my head from this problem twice but she keeps persisting on this practice and so this is why I'm making this journal.
Image above is an image of a secret santa healingwind posted that's now mysteriously missing from her gallery. It's an overlay of what she traced.
I do understand that it may not be in my place to post this journal because I haven't spoken to healingwind personally about it but I really just wanted people to know this information since it is on the internet and things has happened. If she's changed her ways/made an announcement regarding the tracing and junk I will definitely edit this journal to keep people updated but until then this is how it is wawawa...The "failingwind" tumblr: [link]
I looked away from her tracing a couple of times over a few months but after a while I decided to post.
event 1: nisoniso calls her out [link]
Nisoniso found traced pictures of her art from healingwind. This was the first time I personally found out about the situation and healingwind and nisoniso sorted it out. Okay, great. Thinking that's the last time she'd trace it was easier to let go. But she continued her acts after the resolution and niso has immortalized the matter on her blog.
event 2: Artist Confessions [link]
So when she persisted in tracing an artist-confessions post was created to call her out-- which she requested removal of the following day. It was posted late December but there is evidence she has traced between the nisoniso matter and the artist-confession's post. So she hadn't stopped after being confronted by niso but she also hadn't done a public resolve and own up to her mistakes. Instead she kept sweeping matters under the rug.
event 3: failingwind blog [link]
Here I saw even more traced art that included SSes, commissions, and contests on DA

<- contest she got second place in for a TRACED PICTURE
post about it here: [link]
Also traced commission above that was taken down later. [link]
This is why I've decided to make a journal about it. Tracing in general is not alright, however she entered a contest she got second placed in, she traced a gift for someone, and she traced a commission.
These three are especially heinous to me because tracing for a contest is stealing opportunity from someone else who put their all in their picture, tracing a gift makes someone not able to look at their gift with happiness, and tracing a commission is basically stealing money.
Also she knows she is doing something wrong because she immediately takes down accused pictures on da
and posts process gifs as of late in an attempt to prove her authenticity.
She was a major inspiration to me but after finding this out I pretty much throw this out the window.
I've commissioned her before and now I question if my commission is traced because of this. Also anything impressive or dynamic she's drawn.
But I just posted this not as a call to harass her/witch hunt her/OR TO NOTIFY THE DA STAFF OF HER DOING
but as a source of information for people like me who looked up to her and awed at her talent.
You are free to leave with your own opinion of her after reading my journal and I am not here to rally against her. Thank you for reading and I apologize if my original journal distracted you from my original point.
