This makes the 3rd time I have caught this company selling there commissioned artworks without buying the copyright of the art it’s self and no credit what so ever, when selling as prints or t-shirts, each time they change the name or location, first they where close by me, then in Cali and now there in new york.

They do give credit in there DA page but any where else they don’t and they have been told many times by the artists to give them credit when selling there works.

prosscomics.deviantart.com/ (there DA page, there company name.)

please do not buy from this company nor let them commission one of your arts, they will scam you.
