Utilizator Issue Update

Utilizator Issue Resolved

Just an update to the recent Utilizator issue going on.

Utilizator Mode has admitted to using Frick’s legs as a reference, and in turn has agreed to give 5% of all future kemono marketplace sales to her. I’m glad this has been resolved, and we can now go back to our original programming :) The previous blog will now be removed, as I said it would be once resolved.

KittyCatS released a new free kitten for Firestorm’s birthday! Like last year’s Firestorm cat, this one doesn’t need any food at all to care for it. The package also comes with a mesh bed for your kitten, and an optional coupon that gives you a free breedable (male or female) with a week’s worth of food.

Sooo… I’m not trying to start any shit, but has anyone else noticed the really really really strong resemblance between Utilizator’s kemono’s animal legs and Frick Finkler’s old kawaii legs…

I’m not saying any copy was done or anything, because tiny footed legs are really common because it’s “cute” now a days, but it’s still kinda blatant.. 

It’s been resolved as of this post.

Real Sneaky, Utilizator.

Real sneaky….

The snapshot below shows an overlay of 2 legs. The pink overlay is a leg made by my good friend, Frick Finkler. Her Kawaii Legs to be exact.

The leg it’s on top of, is the animal leg on the extremely popular, Utilizator Kemono avatar, made by…

As much as you can make a legitimate claim with the Kawaii legs. You can also look at the fact that those kawaii legs can have their shape molded but He has had Kemono prototypes far before he had the kemono made itself. Pretty much years before hand But it doesn’t surprise me at all that he took a design that worked and ran with it.

Most importantly if you are trying to cost him sales you aren’t going to do anything. If anything its referenced and that type of leg shape tends to be a very simple thing to pull off and suits the style. Lastly does Frick give a shit? Last ive seen shes made a number of Kemono products.

Lets not try to start this little furry drama OMG COPIED DESIGN crap. Considering the amount of ideas modders and people who make mesh take from each other as is in the furry market and try to start some shit over it.

Last note. If its an issue, Make a better fucking product people. Be competitive and give people a reason to buy and sell better and better products.

I do actually “give a shit,” thank you very much. I’ve been told about the legs looking similar since the avatar was released and until my friends made this overlay, i had no idea it lined up 95% with my own mesh. Here’s my issue: those were my number one selling item and now they do not sell.

Utilizator is perfectly capable of making and designing things on his own, that’s another thing that gets me. He’s talented and that’s obvious, why be sneaky or lazy?

I can’t speak for anyone else by I’m not personally trying to cost him sales, in fact I just spent a WHOLE MONTH modding his avatar and now that I’m finished with it, I don’t even particularly want to release it but i will. In a situation like this there is literally nothing you can do, just suck it up and live with it. I appreciate the fact that people are standing up for me, though, don’t get me wrong.

Wait til you get your work ripped, traced or reuploaded, this has been happening to me and other people who try to make a legitimate effort in Second life and then you’ll understand why “little furry drama OMG COPIED DESIGN” matters. Pouring your time into something and having it shat on doesn’t bring around a particularly good feeling.

on top of ALL that, i just received an IM from Utilizator saying that he DID reference my legs:

[08:57] Utilizator Mode: (Saved Wed Sep 03 09:03:22 2014)this is true, i did reference screenshots i took of your legs

[08:57] Utilizator Mode: (Saved Wed Sep 03 09:06:46 2014)when i was prototyping the kemono, i used a bunch of furry body parts from different creators to assemble an avatar that would give me a good idea of what i want to do, i have redesigned everything on paper as time went and meshed everything out but i really loved the shape of your legs and my designs didnt look right without that leg shape so i decided to go with the same shape.

[08:57] Utilizator Mode: (Saved Wed Sep 03 09:07:59 2014)i did however model my legs from scratch, you can see it if you take a look of the wire frame and my legs have a different foot with toes on it

[08:57] Utilizator Mode: (Saved Wed Sep 03 09:09:54 2014)either way, i didnt realize it at the moment but it was probably dumb of me not credit you for it.

[09:04] Occvlt Qveen (frick.finkler): thank you for this

I appreciate him being truthful and that is the end of this story, everyone who’s mad about it being brought up, calm your mother fucking tits.

^ Reblogging for the update. ^

An updated version of the QFC avatar. Has more colors/textures, and PSDs this time. Also has slightly updated rigging and less clipping with the mane in some poses. Really, it’s just here for people who missed out the first time, or people who asked for PSDs, or people who wanted different color/texture options.

The leg it’s on top of, is the animal leg on the extremely popular, Utilizator Kemono avatar, made by Utilizator Mode.

Frick’s leg date of creation: May 25, 2012

Utilizator’s leg date of creation: April 26, 2014

Both legs are mesh, therefore creation date tampering is not possible like it was with sculpts. Both dates are real and unmodified (buy both and inspect for yourselves)

According to Frick’s transaction log, Utilizator had purchased her mesh legs and worn them a good ways before any word of a Utilizator furry avatar.

The only real difference between the 2 legs, is the fact that Utilizator added toes.

There was no reference credit given in any of the notecards that came with the Kemono.

This is sad. Real sad. Even sadder that people are going to back up and support this avatar creator no matter what, because he’s “popular”.

PLEASE SUPPORT FRICK FINKLER’S ORIGINAL LEGS. THEY’RE SUPER CUTE, AND WERE NOT REFERENCED OR COPIED FROM ANOTHER CREATOR!
