This person's art is everywhere in style. I'm damn sure there's only one user on the account, but many different names. I found one piece so far, and it wasn't a commission for them, either...

Wanted to let everyone that Shelby (Ryan) Donaldson (has two accounts one as Shelby Ryan Donaldson and other is the one linked) is back and still stealing work on facebook www.facebook.com/profile.php?i…
I've already contacted some of the artists again about this (one is on facebook and knows already) and I'm contacting some of the others as well. She admits she has done this before and been caught resulting in a ban on facebook but won't stop because 'it ruins her fun' and "if artists have an issue with theft then don't put it online" please let the artists know about her so she can be reported again. I have been blocked (shockingly *rolls eyes*) by her again. You can also see on her posts she even says "I'm crediting the artists this time, so its not theft." If you do talk to her she will call you a bully and say she's telling her 4000 friends she is being harassed again. Also she has been doing this for awhile, so best bet is for artists to file a DMCA take down but she won't take anything down.

lanastoleikis2002.deviantart.c… Almost everything in his gallery is stolen and he is acting like nothing is wrong. I reported him months ago, yet he is still not banned.
lanastoleikis2002.deviantart.c… Here you can even see the original artist commenting that he should delete the picture, but he does nothing about it :/

nightmarefrufru.deviantart.com Art thief, troll, and major jerk. Careful, if you catch them out on their BS they may repeatedly harass you, copy your work and/or even send death threats to you. Previous accounts include :iconrangiku-x: and :iconxbisparulzx: as far as I know. Also as proof, when I gave evidence that their most recent deviation was stolen (although the comment is gone now and the deviation was taken down and reuploaded) they blocked me without saying a word.

stolen: nightmarefrufru.deviantart.com…

original: mishkedehbizikhe.deviantart.co…

A comment they made to me on their previous account :iconxbisparulzx: comments.deviantart.com/21/681…

(sorry for the lack of evidence I lost the links to the rest.)
