To plush artists AND commissioners: PLEASE ask me permission first before you buy/sell Discord Whooves plushies. You can make them for yourselves but please show me and please give credit, but if you're going to be selling or buying them I would really like to be asked first. I will likely say it's fine but I'd just like the common courtesy, please?

This is becoming an issue.

When you search 'Discord Whooves Plush' on DA, out of all the plushies shown, only 2 of them are mine. Again, for people who made them for themselves, that's fine. But for the people commissioning them and the artists offering to 'make more on request' (I saw this twice) you NEED to ask me first... Because he is NOT your character.

I haven't been asked permission and I don't get credit and it's starting to really frustrate me because his design was in fact made by me.
Look, just because you see him all over the place does NOT mean he is a 'fan' character that's open for anyone to use. I gave him unique traits that Doctor Whooves does NOT have in show in order to make him stand out on his own.

Black hair, wings, black bowtie, circles under the eyes...? Yeah, that's me. Discorded ponies don't get black hair, they just turn a desaturated version of themselves, they don't get circles under their eyes either so technically a discorded Doctor Whooves would look different. There are plenty of other ways to make him look discorded and unique without using my design.

I've been so frustrated with people just taking the design and not realizing it's mine and I'm tired of not being credited or being told 'no it's a fan character not yours' 
I had to actually change his appearance MORE just to make him stand out from the old design I made for him just for the sheer amount of people using it without credit or even bothering to look where he came from.

I just received a character from an acquaintance of mine.
One of my friends claimed he was a ripoff of zerum.
While I looked into this, I noticed one of his art pieces was traced straight off your own artwork and his basic name is somewhat a ripoffr They also decided to keep the collar and leash.

Here's the image of the character that I am talking about.
