firetruck red by loish firetruck red by loish
same old same old! i felt the urge to draw something red and blue today.

inked with sakura microns and colored with letraset tria markers on standard printing paper. i messed around with it in photoshop 7.0 and added some textures from [link] . enjoy!

by the way, to anyone noting the resemblance between this drawing and an outfit on the website subeta.net: they based the outfit on my drawing (initially without my permission, but i gave my consent later). so basically, this one came first!

This character design is... inspirational to say the least.
Every aspect of her is really retro cool looking.
Great job on the posing too, just beautiful.
I'm not sure how long it took you to draw this, but it was time well spent. :)
Really inspiring.

Loish, I just wanted to tell you that your color pallets and unique style have inspired me continuously over the years. I cant explain why exactly, but every time I go through your gallery I develop a strong urge to draw! This drawing in particular has inspired me today, so I thank you for being awesome :>

i think i may be the only person, almost, on subeta who doesn't like the roq line 'inspired' by this. well, save for the wig.
i love this so much though!
it's honestly amazing.

but even though everything's obviously over, i'm still bothered by this.
it seems it's just one of the artists that bring up shit and drama, more or less. :c


however! i was wondering, because of this, (this is just me being not as shy for once and curious)
do you have anything against subeta at all, for this happening? orrr just the line artist in particular? or are you like, completely over it?

i was never really not "over it." i never made a fuss, my view is that if you are heavily inspired by an artist or art piece you should just give proper credit, so when the designer of the clothing line asked me whether i was okay with the items being on subeta, i simply stated this view and the title was adjusted. for the rest, i was largely unaware that it caused a huge drama until after the matter had been solved.

i don't really have an opinion on subeta, since i know very little about it.

i know this subject is really old, so i'm sorry for bringing it up again, but the moment i saw the roq candy loish line after joining subeta a few months ago, i knew it had some connection to you. the style is so obviously you--and of course, the name. so today i finally decided to do some research and found the threads and the controversy. i'm angry that you received no mentions at all initially; i look up to you for being able to be so gracious about the entire incident. and i also just want to say that i adore your style--it definitely stands out.

oh, i'm not aware of any other situation. but a lot of members wrote notes to me about the roq candy line. there was a huge controversy on the site about the clothing being taken off of my drawing, a lot of people were accusing the designer of the clothes of art theft. i granted permission for the clothes to stay, because people liked them, but i asked for them to give credit, which is why it is called the "roq candy loish" line. loish is my online name :b

Got it. Yeah, there was a huge controversy about some Rainbow cake thing. -Shrug- Then like, a huge controversy about the pets being rip-offs of Neopets. And thaaaats why the name changed from Roq candy stellar to Loish. I see.

Sorry to jump in on this guys, but there have also been issues in the past with longcat ([i]that[/i] time the site got hacked in return for stealing lol), and a bunch of the advent items were taken off of a costuming site. Not to mention the recent Carl hat items. This really makes me wonder how much they've stolen.


Either way. They definitely don't have the creativity and quality of art that Liosh has. I'd rather see them stop stealing and have them have respect for the artists at this point.

But after seeing this, I must admit the longcat episode was damn funny and well deserved.

But while I AM here I will say that I do love your work Liosh, you have a great style with amazing coloring to match and amazing creativity. And this is just fantastic. With the fantastic texture and colors. You put time and effort into this, and they don't deserve to steal it.

This is such a great picture.

And I hate to bring up a subject that's probably sore, but it really bothers me that Subeta used this without permission. :( I'm at least glad it was brought to someone's attention, and that an agreement has been reached on it. :) I don't think I'd have been able to take it, if I were in your position. >_< Theft is something I do NOT take lightly.

Though I do get where you're coming from saying you don't own everything she's wearing, yourself.

Splendid picture... You did a fantastic job on this, really... I just love your art style!! <3 Your colouring and drawing and you just choose the right colours to blend. o_o' So amazing....

hey!
well, i never said that i don't own everything she's wearing. i don't think it's really a valid argument to say "i didn't invent hats or jeans" or whatever, which is what a lot of people at subeta were saying.. it's not about inventing those things, it's about the style of the image, and it was totally ripped off. but in the end i decided it was harmless to have it online as long as i was getting credit. people at subeta seemed to really like the clothing so i didn't want to be a huge party pooper, especially since everyone there knew it was my work and had a lot of respect for me as the original artist. i hate it when my art is used on forums because people don't realize there is an artist behind the work, but this wasn't the case at subeta.
thanks for the kind compliments by the way!

Has an agreement been reached between you and the artist as well as the clothing line?
As far as I have seen into these comments, it was said it would be taken down, but instead it was renamed to RoQ Candy Loish.

Are you really okay with it though...?

I really don't want to buy anything from the set if you're even a tiny bit resistant to it.
At the same time, I don't want to buy the set because it is basically yours and you're not getting compensated for it other than credit...

I'm really sorry to be bringing it up, I'm sure you no longer want to deal with it.
But I am concerned...

hey! sorry for the late response. my deviantart inbox has been severely backlogged lately. i'm ashamed, it's been two months! but anyway, to answer your question, i'm pretty much o.k with this drawing being used as clothing items on subeta. i was really mad about the way it all happened - the artist clearly ripped off my work, called it 'inspiration' rather than simply copying, and only contacted me about it after a whole fiasco broke out on the subeta page, so basically she was forced to talk to me and probably wouldn't have done it otherwise.
but people really seemed to like the outfit, even people who knew my work, because they saw it as a sort of tribute. as long as credit was given to me i didn't mind, and technically i can't prevent stuff like this from happening anyways.
so i can live with it! :]

I don't mean to beat the issue, but even if credit was given, the fact remains that as an artist for the site, she's being paid to use your design.
