kingxping Featured By Owner 46 minutes ago  New Deviant

A DA user who recently started up a Patreon account to earn money from their copied and traced works. The original artworks were found by searching through the user’s favorited artists. The user favorited a journal entry about giving credit to sources when referencing, but purposefully leaves out the names of sources, traces other user’s artwork or photos, and cites it as their original character/original work. Has been deleting more obviously traced work to cover themselves up.

So... Just taking a bunch of pictures that you like on the Internet, and then posting them on your account (whatever with credits or not)... It's not within DA's rules, right ?

Well, those 3 people are doing it *and* not responding when asked about it :

refusing  to give credit to the artist because she "added more to it" all she did was change the canvas size to 736x 528 to 900 x 646

Hello everybody !

I've got a tracer for you, which takes other people's artwork without their permission, badly traces it  and simply changes the characters in the most cases, pretends that it's all her work and doesn't give credit to the original artist. She also copied some of my artworks, but I got them taken down via DMCA takedown notice. But I could just do this for the artwork she has copied from me without permission... So I'm asking for your help to report her and her copied artworks since she blocks everybody who tries to speak with her, even if you're the original artist, like in my case. I guess I don't have to mention that she was pretty rude to me and even insulted me and my friends.

The "artist" would be
 www.panhaukatze.deviantart.com

and here is my list with the comparisions of her copies to the original artworks that I know. There could be much more, If you find more, you could note me since I'm keeping track of this.

panhaukatze.deviantart.com/art… 
evomanaphy.deviantart.com/art/…

twice the same this time, one as keychains and one as card: 
panhaukatze.deviantart.com/art…

The only difference is a little bit of the expression as you can see in the original piece of art here:

User BlackWhite101 is stealing content from both jwebgen.com/generate and dreamself.me. This is against both websites terms. Please share this callout post I have made in an attempt to get them to return all of the things they have taken from users in return for 'adopts' they were not allowed to sell. Thankyou.
