update: So....I contacted my relatives and my uncle is in the police force..he told me that unless I registered a copyright with the picture that was stolen before it was stolen, I would have a case in court. or else there would be nothing i could do and I would lose for sure if i tried to take it to court hahaha.....plus he said that this happens everywhere in China and if I didn't register a copyright to it in China, Chinese courts basically consider it public property and anyone would be able to use it....
well, plus i didn't even put a watermark on that artwork because it was for a contest and the contest rules didn't allow any sort of signatures......=_=;;;; "orz
tl;dr: there's nothing I can do so.....yup.
I'm...actually just really sad more than anything else right now. v_v;;;. oh well. thanks anyways for your support, everyone...
Edit: aw, thanks so much guys for the support *sob*. I know there isn't actually much I can do at the moment. I do have relatives in China who may or may not help me. I won't know until I ask
but i can't until tonight cause, well, day and night is exactly opposite from here. but anyways, thanks guys >A<;;~~
I know some of you guys told me that putting stuff on the internet will always have negative effects, and while I agree, I still want to share my art even at the cost of something like this : ). It might sound a little shallow, but sharing my art is a pretty important part to me as well as the drawing process itself. Actually, if I hadn't had this amount of watchers/favs/good stats on dA, my mom probably wouldn't have let me go into art, hahaha (not to show off, but i was pretty good at the violin and almost went pro...but i never liked it as much as I love art; but i've been forced to play the violin since i was 3 y/o
That said, I'll see what I can do even if it looks really bleak right now hahaha "orz. Thanks again, guys
...but this time, it's by a pretty big phone company in China. On the case. WTF. Am I to put big-ass watermarks on everything now? I don't even know what to do D;

I only found out cause my dad was browsing around large companies to get a phone for my mom.
Dx Dx Dx wtffffffffffffffffffffffff i don't want to deal with this, fuck. Is this going to be an annual thing now? Cause from what i remember, the last time someone sold my work w/o my permission was also some time in july, just last year. ffffff "orz.
urgh, let me see if I can't work this out when I go back to China. I wanna sue their ass off, especially cause they're a pretty big company D:< but i don't even know where to start or have the money
