This 'artist' brags about being a professional and working in the industry, all while stealing, tracing, and then selling their stolen shit on RedBubble (rofl).

She is currently bragging about getting someone else's copy of her copy taken down. I have already reported several pieces to DA but they don't seem to give a shit. Help appreciated.

This little kid thinks she has the powers to perfectly redraw vectors and post it on here without asking for permission of the original artist to "redraw" it, or should I say steal it and not even credit the artist in the description. 

Even if she actually did that it wouldn't work out.

If anyone around here could help me find the original images, I'd be really grateful.

This person steals art, takes the water mark, and claims as her own! Please help me stop her!

The journal is here: zuko-kitty.deviantart.com/jour…

I made a journal to point out obvious ones!

She also hides comments pointing it out and asking her to credit, and she's rude to all who ask her to not:
self advertise

excusing-owl.deviantart.com/ is a theif.
And astaroth95.deviantart.com/ is submitting pictures that's broken deviantart's rules (one containing sexual fluids), also her photos aren't art, they are just nude selfies.
And blue-boy-1.deviantart.com/, he is having.. Rather sexual icons, and submitts photographs of his genitalia. (Though if you're going to visit his page, he has an icon (curently) of a female genitalia..)
