What should I do if I suspect someone is an art thief (some stolen works in their gallery) but I don't have prooves? I tried to look for the images on google but couldn't really find out to whom they belong to, while others were so small I couldn't even find them.

Hi there,

This: scribbler-onthe-roof.deviantar… Deviant Artist's gallery contains A LOT of stolen work. In fact, I am almost positive that none of the work in this person's gallery is of their own creation. I personally have had work stolen from this artist but have managed to get it taken down. Others haven't been so lucky and have even had their watermarks/signatures hidden by this person's username. 

Here are some examples of stolen work:

Original: hippie-goat.deviantart.com/art…
Stolen: scribbler-onthe-roof.deviantar…

Original: kezumiyo.deviantart.com/art/ju…
Original: kezumiyo.deviantart.com/art/My…
Stolen: scribbler-onthe-roof.deviantar…
Stolen: scribbler-onthe-roof.deviantar…

Original: khrssc.deviantart.com/art/Prof…
Stolen: scribbler-onthe-roof.deviantar…

Original: poketix.deviantart.com/art/che…
Stolen: scribbler-onthe-roof.deviantar…

While the gallery does contain far more stolen art than this, the original artists have been hard to track. 

Please if anyone knows any of the original artists who's art has been stolen by this DA user, let them know and help report and get their work taken down from this persons DA page.

Thank you

Art theif here:

Most of the art comes from Pixiv and Tumblr I think, which means it's impossible to find the source by reverse image searching
