So I have some serious beef with Episode
I’m on the verge of leaving their community and stop using their portal because of this.
So here’s the thing, I used a piece of comic as an ART REFERENCE and drew some awesome art. They weren’t cut and copy, I altered them enough to which they shouldn’t be considered copyright.
I spent HOURS and in some cases DAYS drawing these art pieces only for them to be rejected.
I’m really debating wether or not I should continue writing and being apart of the episode community. I spent hours drawing art scenes and making a cover for my story only for them to be rejected after already being approved. I sent them a support ticket seeking help but they again accused me of copyright. Does episode have no idea that their “artists” on episode also use art reference? But when I do it and it looks decent it’s infringed as copyright? I doubt they’ll fix this situation so I don’t wanna bother with their portal or community.
Episode has so many things to fix. It’s like they’re more concerned about backgrounds than they are with diversity, bullying, and unfairness. People can upload stories where they scream about dildos and crack but my story gets smashed because they think my art work is too similar to a WEBTOON.
99% OF THE ARTISTS ON EPISODES USE A REFERENCE WITH THEIR ART.
Episode is messy and it’s a shame that such creative people have to deal with their antics.
I’m better off using Wattpad because there’s more freedom on there and your art/writing is appreciated.
Episode treats new/smaller creators like trash but when it comes to popular gang story’s that has rape and drugs in them it’s okay because they’re making money from it.
I went to Instagram and my followers suggested we do some form of protest so Episode can address this.
Here’s my instagram:
You’d be helping me a lot by taking part in my protest. It’s not just about me but for other artists out there that are getting unfair treatment by episode.
