The Gentha by ReivanRyles The Gentha by ReivanRyles
Well, hay tharr.

I've been workin' a lot lately, so I haven't had much of the chance to draw. Thus, when Saturday rolled around and I had a ton of shit to do, I said "screw it", slept in, and then sat around on my computer for about 4 hours doing this. This was an experiment. I suck at making reference sheets, but, hey, I've had these guys running around my sketchbook a lot over the past few months [pretty much since I played a star wars tabletop character]with their own little stories and lives and blah blah blah, so yeah.

Feel free to make one, I don't care, just my sci-fi musings. I haven't really decided on a set type of clothing, but it'll probably be a flowy thing with lots of strips and stuff.

Oh, and textures used from :iconjadedreality:

Ok, lol, now to take care of everything I've been putting off...*runs off*




EDIT: WTF?? Wow, lol, never had this happen before... >>; [link] [link] [link]
Now I look like a damned art thief. x.x;

Well, in any case, I'm going to go ahead and put up a disclaimer anyways.

The Gentha species is completely original, and I can swear wholeheartedly by that statement, and I can even call on =Shinerai who has seen my sketches. I had absolutely no intention at all of coming up with anything remotely similar to anyone else's alien species, and they aren't something that I just now made up, as they've been in my sketchbooks for a year or more now. I've never even come across :iconitsabunpuni:'s art or species before, and I can honestly say that I was inspired by Star Wars and attempted to create a new species for that world.

Don't take this wrong, but those characteristics are super common and I don't really see what the fuss is about. I mean, there wasn't even any color to match up, which is one of the main things that people bitch about.

Thank you! XD

Holy crap the simularities between yours and the other ones created by Bun (never been across their art before) but wow.

I believe you aren't an art thief, and you shouldn't worry about any of that.

Great species and the information that you have posted is very helpful in understanding them ^.^

ReivanRyles Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, I was pretty bewildered, too! D:> The 4 arms thing isn't terribly uncommon, but I guess the headtail idea combined with that makes it look similar more than anything.

I just searched these images, they're apparently pretty popular concepts, I just managed to combine like another artist and it looks bad :/ I don't want people to get the wrong idea, I'm not a thief! DX

:iconcatolf:
Catolf Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2008
I wouldn't worry about it, as you can see it is common, it's not like that one wa the only head tail around, so i doubt anyone could call you a thief.

But if they do I'll give them a good smack and tell'em off for you.

And sides' as stated you have Shin to back you up about this, you never knew about that other person's chara, and if you did before hand you wouldn't have made it. No one likes to get copied or copy off someone when your trying to make something origional and unique.

Why not tell the artist about it, and clear things up before there is even an issue?

Oh, I did send them a response, the only reason I even know about their species is because they noted me and, while they tried to not sound accusing, they still kinda did, and it really flabbergasted me that I just got accused of art theft. O:

I really like my species, though, and I'm afraid they're gonna ask me to take it down. x.o; That's something I'm not wanting to do... they're mine! That probably sounds selfish, but I feel like I have a right to post my own original art!

But, I haven't gotten a response, yet, so that's just a possibility.

~itsubunpuni is a civil human being, and she's not going to have a tantrum and start a war. If she wanted to be immature and accusatory, she'd have brought it up right out in the open by making a journal and commenting about it here for the world to see. That's how 99% of the people who go through this kind of thing do, and you're lucky enough that she's a bigger person than that.

Not to mention that she is also a friend of *Shinerai, and Shin has known about her Crutsu as well... so I don't think that bracing Shin against Itsu would get anyone anywhere. At best Shin would be able to say that neither of you were in the wrong and everyone would go home the same as they came.

Not to argue, but I'd also like to point out that even if you've been sketching these for a year, Itsu has had her Crutsu since long before I met her -4 years- ago. Hell, I even have one of my own. xD


In essence, I respect you and your amazing art and creations (I always have~), and I do not think you're a thief. I think this is just an amazing coincidence, and two amazing people just happened to think up the same amazing thing.

However, Itsu is a good, good friend of mine and I would like it if people didn't start acting all wary of her as if she's preparing to start a war. She's a reasonable person, and all she needed to hear was a sincere confirmation that it was just a coincidence. Whether or not she sounded accusatory, she wasn't. But try to put yourself in her shoes. You create something you feel is truly unique (whether or not uniqueness is what you had been going for), have it and refine it and use it for years on end, and someone pops up with something that looks nearly identical. That's a little alarming, is it not? Not to mention that I can personally vouch that Itsu's Crutsu mean much more to her than anyone could probably imagine.

So no, she's not planning an attack. No, she's not going to ask you to take it down, nor is she going to presume that she's the only one that can have any given idea.

But she can still be disheartened. I would be.

Your Gentha are safe. So do with them what you will, but try not to let people make an enemy out of Itsu just because she was startled. :c


Keep up the amazing work~

I'm sorry if I was offensive, I wasn't meaning to be, I'm just afraid of the usual dramaz that erupt on DA, I suppose. It wasn't meant to be accusatory. :[

I understand how much hard work she put into the species, that's why I was so afraid, people tend to be emotional about their "babies", I know I am.

And that's all that I ever wanted Shin to say. :] I didn't want to stand him up as a spiky defense, only as a witness to the fact that it was a coincidence, not to determine who was first or anything. I know that she created her Crutsu's first, anyways. :P That's as obvious as her first deviation.

I suppose what got me off track and nervous more than anything was her lack of response to my first note. I didn't know if she was typing up some massive accusatory letter or just hadn't had the chance to write back, and I don't know her, so I was bracing myself for the worst, but hoping for the best. I guess DA's gotten to me over the past few years, lol. I apologize for any misconceptions, I wasn't trying to sound angry or overly paranoid, just cautious, as it seemed to me like I was stepping on her emotions, and I don't wanna do that. :[

I don't think she really knows what to say, to be honest. But I can tell you right now that she's not planning a strategized offensive on you. xD

Man I know what it's like, too. People get so nutty around here that it's hard not to get defensive, so I understand the paranoia. xD I just thought I'd let you know so that everyone could be a bit more at ease. ~Itsubun may also be suffering from a short attention span no thanks to WoW. >> I'd bet anything she's playing right as we speak, so forgive her negligence in responding. xDD

But yeah. She's not the type to stir drama. She hates it as much as you or I.

I say fight it with shin. He knows that you have the species a long time, I wouldn't back down, if it's yours then don't give in. Because the moment you do they are diffidently going to think your an art thief.

I would say fight it, put up the sketches you had (with dates i hope) and show that yes you had these for a long time, and you shouldn't have tot ake it down, having similarities in art happens sometimes..

and if they are mature about it they will see no they aren't exactly alike, their are other four armed things and even tail headed things and even say where you got your idea.

I was worried that their would end up being a big thing over it and I was saying that Shin could just say RR wasn't copying off of Bun and that it was just a coincidence in the end and everyone would be all hunky dory you know?

thank you for straightening this all out tho:heart:

Yeah, I'm generally hoping that that's how this ends. No response yet, btw. :/
