About My Design

After attending Descon since 2008, I have never seen figures been sold from the art/creativity stands, And I thought about making this higly japan-related Kitsune that I maybe could have spread around as an collectible during these events by later date. KitsuneChans amount of tails is decreased to only two for making them look large and poofy, Small pink dots on the cheecks and the chibi-ness size makes it look super(Kawaii)cute for the ones who loves these kinds of mythical creatures. You want this adorable KitsuneChan to curse the ones who tries to steal your books/stuff from your desk? Then this is the right thing or you!

Aw so cute. The design for this is adorable. His two tails are perfect for him. I hope he gets turned into a plush.

@ splitter:


first of all your submission description:" ...I'm really disappointed to see the admin is not careful, so images that have been stolen by GretheB Patchtogether could escape into this..." doesn't really help in your case.

Every member who submits a design is responsible for his submission and is responsible for all copyright issues - not us.
It is impossible to check all submissions if they are a 1:1 copy - especially if someone copies designs from another not so public artist.

If there are obviously issues with copyright, license-issues etc. we try to solve the problem by talking to boths artists. But ofcourse 1st we need to be informed, 2nd we need to check the problem, 3rd listen to both sides. This ofcourse takes some time - so patience is a good thing to solve issues.

Then a very important thing here is - the design didn't make it to a product - so by now it's just a conceptdrawing which might have the same color and the name "KITSUNE" in its title - but I believe you are not the owner of the title "KITSUNE".

So let's double check the similarities between your KITSUNE and KITSUNE CHAN by GretheB:

Coloring: yes
Ears: different
Nose: different
Eyes: different
Headshape: different
Hands: different
Any weapons in GretheB's design? No
Any blood in GretheB's design? No

So both of you drew a KITSUNE and both are yellow - but that's about it.
Now we can discuss who's first, which one is better - more original and if GretheB's got inspired by your KITSUNE - okay - these are questions might be worth to discuss...

...but it's not a 1:1 copy so we won't delete the submission from our site.


Hope that cleared out some questions.

Very cute. would love this on my desktop!
GretheB commented on 11th Apr 2010 (Report Spam)

Thanks alot, Samtoage :)

I will not change the design as my friends have told me even they have drawn a kitsune like this during their lifes, but never done anything about it(posting it up).

I will tho, change the color cause of the "tails" factor, and maybe try to make it more purplish/pinkish for cuteness.

I hope this can get an end to the accusements.

and again, I have never seen that person or that kitsune of his D= so I don´t know how I could have copied it at all.

Splitter: Take a chill pill. You haven't copyrighted yellow two-tailed kitsunes, and not everyone who makes one is copying you. It is simply too commonplace of an idea for you to be causing this kind of drama.

It's more likely that you both got the idea from the Sonic character Tails than GretheB copied you.


Grethe: You can change your design if you want, but don't do it because Splitter cried art theft.

The only thing I might do is change the color, if only because of it's similarity to Tails (which isn't much of a similarity at all, but eh). 

GretheB commented on 11th Apr 2010 (Report Spam)

folks! I can ensure you all that this design was based loosely on the legend of Zelda Kitsune from Majoras Mask.

Art theft is not my style of work and all of my galleries can prove that.

I have many times seen my own characters getting copyed, but the differences are too many to actually call it a theft. our Kitsunes are different too, but if he wants me to change some details on it, I will.

I hope this haven´t ruined my whole experience here on PT, or your image about me, because I have never stolen in my entire life, not even a gum from a store.
I´m a artist that respects other artists, and if problems shows, I´m ready to change or talk about it in a calm and peaceful way.

as for this case with our unlucky encounter with our Kitsunes, I hope we will find a way through this. wish us luck.

GretheB commented on 11th Apr 2010 (Report Spam)

huh? oh my! =O

I can ensure you I have never been at your page and I have never seen your character before! I used the Kitsune from Legend of Zelda as a idea for this.

I´m very sorry if I have offended you =O it was not my intention to actually "steal" someones Idea. if I had known this, I would never have made it in the first place.

I´m an artist who is against art theft myself, so I know how it is.

I´m willing to do some changes on it if you want. because I don´t want to earn money on something that maybe already exist. if we can make a nice conversaation about this, we can sort something out :)

a successful, simple, sturdy design, but generically japanese like a certain pocket monster.

Great! :D He'd make the perfect plush as I keep saying xD

Already said it before, I think this guy would do well. :D
GretheB commented on 8th Apr 2010 (Report Spam)

To everyone!

Now KitsuneChan is categorized as a Plush :D

o0AquaDragon0o commented on 7th Apr 2010 (Report Spam)

 don't see a reason why it wouldn't.


And you're welcome. :)

GretheB commented on 7th Apr 2010 (Report Spam)

Thanks Aquadragon :D I will try to contact them about this :)

I hope this will work  out.

o0AquaDragon0o commented on 7th Apr 2010 (Report Spam)

You may have to ask PT about that, because at the moment, I THINK you can only add more pictures to a design, not add more text. You should probably contact PT about it, this is simple, cute, and would in fact not only make good resign but an adorable squishy plushy. The fuzzy tails could actually be fuzzy instead of sculpted fat :D

GretheB commented on 7th Apr 2010 (Report Spam)

hmmm is there any way of changing the description if I want to add the plush detail to it =O would have been nice to actually see it as one.

I just didn´t know they could make plushies as well here =O

o0AquaDragon0o commented on 6th Apr 2010 (Report Spam)

Looks a lot like a keeton from Zelda, very cute. Just not really agreeing with the really long head.


Would make the perfect plushy.

Honto kawaii!The real kitsune were not so nice(check out Tanuki no Ponpoko by Ghibli)but this one would work even better as a plush.
