That's A Rip! (xiv's brainchild)

Tired of scoring those designs with stolen images? Post 'em here so others will know what to look out for!!!


Found something that isn't a direct rip but is heavily influenced by a design already found on Threadless? Post it as well so people can make an educated decision. :)


Update: December 7, 2013


Slacker that I am, it's been over two years since I've been active on the forums. I've deleted the list on here as it's sorely out of date. Obviously people know how to navigate the pages and check out the rippers and ripees. :)

yeah... I zeroed that one already

cogigoc

this guy:

i know i saw it on 9gag sometime, and it was on it

from dawn chapel

i dunno, maybe dawn chapel subbed in threadless? do you think?

Manupix

Seems unlikely: artists who have a website/blog will usually link it in their profile, as well as promote their Threadless subs in their blog. Highly suspicious indeed. I'd suggest contacting Dawn Chapel too.

cogigoc

just message him and hopefully he'd shed light to it!

dawnchapel

Hello! I am the artist in question, and no I did not submit it to threadless. I'm pestering @threadhelp on twitter at present and will drop their customer service line an email.

Thanks dudes and ladies! Your cause is righteous and I appreciate you.

squintygirl

Thanks for confirming this, zeroed the design appropriately.

Keep up the good work, everyone!

And it's gone! W00t!

dawnchapel on Apr 19 '12 at 9:39am Hello! I am the artist in question, and no I did not submit it to threadless.

Now that you're here, I hope you do submit some stuff! =)

Now that you're here, I hope you do submit some stuff! =)

Haha, thanks, but I don't have a lot of faith in my ability to compete here, honestly. I used to participate in the shirt.woot derby and my designs never got much traction, and I got tired of doing all that work and not getting paid for it. If I'm gonna do something for nothing, I'd rather do it for myself! :D

The comments on that are pretty funny.

I spent 10 hours on this.

No really, my friend and I spent 10 hours on this.

I'll even show you the damn photoshop file

Whoops just kidding my friend got it from someone else. My bad.

I mean, it sounds like he was duped, and I give him credit for admitting fault. But--what's in that mysterious photoshop file? Where did those ten hours go?

two thumbs up for this blog!

Good catches, Manupix!

EN AJUSTES

His friend "forgot" to tell him it wasn't his work.

Manupix

There are at least 2 closely similar images by Ontiveros (1, 2), but not the exact image in this sub. Looks more like a heavy 'inspiration' than an actual rip-off.

Manupix

But this is a plain old rip-off: on DA.

This guy. lol @ I put all of my feelings into my art.

When Pandas Attack anyone?

I have so many questions.

She actually signed her name on the submission? Why does she call it a lion? It's not even up for scoring yet; where did you find that?

that one is great. I've seen that shirt ripped in shops before, you might find people dont even realise they're ripping a threadless rip already. testament to the design though!

Manupix

It's not even up for scoring yet; where did you find that? 0.o

craquehaus

I'm guessing she tried to promote it.

Also relevant if you forgot the controversy over this one.

change the part thats bold to either a higher or lower number: http://www.threadless.com/submission/422147

theres a similar method for looking at future prints... STAFFDELETE

Manupix

haha cool =) Gotta have some time to lose though. Like, when there's nothing left to score on weekends ;)
