I'm not 100% sure, but all of the art looks like it may be stolen, the style isn't consistent.

wolf10133.deviantart.com/ girl was caught this year reposting stolen arts and she is at it again. she is trying to get free stuff from people by asking people to drew this and this for them and they will give so much to them, as you can see she can't drew and almost everything is stolen, she is also trying to sell linearts for prints after she colors them.

One of my anime ocs trying to claim other's OC's as their own. Trying to say they edited a little which means they cut the arts down and saying it counts
as their OC's now. Doesn't work that way.

Username09 ( usernameuser09.deviantart.com/ ) re-posts fetish-related images from old, deactivated accounts, including images showing minors. He admits it in a conversation, right here:

Emo teen feet (Sharkie Kun)

...starting with my comment ( UndyingEvil / Nov 4, 2017 ), he basically admits it and tries to justify it: "If the person wants it removed all they have to do is ask. I'm not gonna be tracking them down just to ask them."

misty450 has been blatantly re-posting other Deviant's artwork, and has been disregarding countless of requests to remove them from her gallery.
She's stolen from over 14 people.
I have already reported the stolen deviations, however DeviantART has done nothing to resolve this issue.
Upon further investigation, her responses seem ignorant, is not childlike.
As seen here: comments.deviantart.com/4/4336…
Despite my shout-out to her theft, she retaliated with a feebleminded comment: comments.deviantart.com/62/112…
The majority of her comments consist of the literacy of an under-aged user, as displayed in her activity feed.

Furthermore, her artwork also seems just as elementary, and this is not me being artistically judgmental: sta.sh/02cqmenbc2gd
In addition, her misuse of the mature viewing restriction is appalling, as the majority of the stolen work contradicts the mature rating displayed.

Her harassment toward me also includes immediately re-posting another one of my works initially after the previous work was removed via copyright report. She also comments with "innocent" stupidity, and favorites everything in my gallery just to get a rise out of me.
I know about the block feature, but that doesn't solve her arrogant actions.

Though her initial birth date is hidden from public viewing, I suspect that misty450 is violating the age policy, as her responses and behavior are too illiterate and immature to be of someone over the age of 13.
Either that, or she is a troll, or mentally handicapped individual. 
In conclusion, misty450 needs to be removed from DeviantART.

drewtenma.deviantart.com/ remember this guy well all his nude photos are blocked and they will be removed in a few days, he has also lied about his age I did some research and found out he is 14 years old. He has been banned on DA once before and banned on Flicker many times before.
He is also blaiming this person for reporting him but she never reported him and tell his watchers to go after her.

just to clarify

www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-u… in 2014 he said he was 14 years old I do belief he was not 14 by his photo he looked much younger then he is now. I think in 2014 he was 11 years old.

about.me/Drew.Wilhelm

lexiehivemind.deviantart.com/ DA account he was banned from.

picssr.com/photos/kendurhampho… a few photos of him he said he took of himself are from this person. 

I also think the photos of Mila are from porn sites.


I got in connect with his father or I thought I did at first he said it wasn't my business and he is aware of it and it has been dealt with and to kindly leave it be. I thought ok, it's been handled.

Then he left another message that was very rude and he said 'Sounds like the website banned him and he was taught a lession." umm the website hasn't banned your son yet.
you being SJW and going and snitching to daddy is not your job. I'm guessing this is where the boy has learned to be rude to other's from his father, this man runs a business that message was so unprofessional. 
The more I think about the more I think I talked to the little boy what adult would say sjw or snitching to daddy. 

I will not post his websites hear.

His gallery is full of just stuff you would find on Myspace or tumblr, he thinks he is a leader of a werewolf pack, writes fanfiction for teenaged girls, when
in fact he a 37 year old man. And if you point out he needs to give credit or stuff is stolen he either blocks you or sends his watchers after you and
spams your account until you give up. he also writes journals to get attention.

Saw this on Anti art theft tumblr and thought should share this

Proof: antiarttheft.tumblr.com/post/1…

This user is impersonating an artist on Pixiv by the same name, and is going so far as to linking to the real artists pixiv and other social medias to seem like the real deal
They have been hiding any callouts against them and many things do seem off about them

apparently has switched from being the artist to the artist sibling
comments.deviantart.com/1/7115…

They are also trying to take commissions. Don't commission them!
