So I was just surfing up DeviantArt and found that a couple of artists had used my designs without letting me know.
You know, I'm not so much concerned that they used my designs--I'm really honored--more so that they didn't even bother to at least credit me.
Now, I know these characters are the intellectual property of their respective owners, but at least let people know who's responsible for designing the concept. I find this a little upsetting, only because these people actually took credit for the designs. As well, these designs were contributed as charity, so really all I ask in return is acknowledgement.

[The other one was a concept I only distributed via e-mail]
EDIT: So I edited the last entry because it seemed like I was attacking the artists who used my designs. I think I used the word "stole". This was a bit unfair, since in truth they've got as much right to use the concepts as is given to them, as the characters don't actually belong to me, but all I ask is that I be credited for creating the final design.
