Hello all, Ahsoka Tano here with a message.

I have noticed, that some people are copying what I do.
meaning, my profile page, my quotes, tag lines, the way I write my journal entry's, ect, and even my art, poses, styles, and other.

And I'm getting a little frustrated that people have to use me as their "role model". Or, what they have to be like. They try to make it look like Ahsoka, But they really don't do a good job of covering up where they got the idea.
Perhaps you think I'm popular, and you want that popularity. Or who knows what else.

Why can't you just be you? :shrug:

I used my brains and my talent to set up my page, why can't you?
I didn't join deviantart to become popular, I joined because I have a love of art, and I wanted to share mine with others.

Now, some of you might be wondering, who is she talking about, I would love to give out the name(s), But I wont, it would save them from humiliation.
But, I hope that <You> are reading this.

If you like an image, concept, comic, I did, and you want to do something like it, ask, or give credit to the original idea.
Is it that hard? Don't let your pride get in the way of doing what is right.

Now I have no problem with you using Ahsoka quotes, but when you use the exact same ones I use, try to match up avatars, use the same description style when you upload an image, use the same profile style, and even use my art style that's not right.

I wish that you would please stop, and think about what your doing.

I don't mean to offend anyone, I'm simply stating what I observe.

Ohh, that is one of the ultimate forms of low - mimicking others' art :X
Hope they knock it off, or if you need a TKD student on your side, I'll knock some sense into them^^

I think I know EXACLY who you are talking about.
I don't have this problem-because I'm not exacly "liked" on DA, but I have noticed things like this.
I do remember one time we had the same tag line! ( it made me laugh XD ) but it wasn't planned to be like that.
It cold also be a miss understanding-maybe the people who do this find the style help full and short to the point. I give almost NO info on my pictures cuz I can't think of anything ( which I probably should start doing to explain more... )
I wouldn't focus on it too much-if I get made at someone I just unwatch them until I cool down
and if I have ever used one of your picture poses and ect, I do remember asking for promission before doing so

I am severely disappointed by the amount of lazy people there are on :dalogo:! I've seen them steal work, use icons without permission, and forget to name the base they used! I, for one, am vey careful about what I post, and how people will see it. I ALWAYS credit the original idea, or the base used! I wish that there would be more honest artists like you in the world, and more good people to share the love. I hope that you can help the dishonest to realize their mistake, and learn from them. I also thank you for coming forward and telling everyone to be honest and make their own work.

Welcome to my world, though sometimes you need to go up to them and say so. Though when you draw common shots from the series it isn't hard to redo without trying. I mean many have done human Ahsoka just for the fun of it doesn't mean they're stealing someone else's idea. Sometimes it's okay to borrow ideas, but sometimes it goes too far. I have it happen alll the time

I really hate it when that happens! But you know what they say, "Mimicry is the most sincere form of flattery" =p but seriously, you'd think they would have their own sense of creativity on them :|
