Hello there, I'm in need of help with a person, i have confronted them in private, notified the owners of the stolen art and made a Journal asking my watchers to report them as well.  They are extremely childish(might be an actual troll) and they have now taken to harassing me.

I hope you guys can help out.  ^^ all the stolen art and their originals that i could find is in that journal.

Thief who says that he uploads his stolen art for a "reason" and because the original artist didn't say "Please do not steal." Is very rude to those who confront him about it as well.

There is a user named MOMIJI-7, tracing other people's art and claiming them as his own. He has tons of traced art in his gallery, most from off-site users, and the users commenting are unaware of this thief's true nature.

momiji-7.deviantart.com/

When being discovered of his art looking similar to someone else's art, he will lash out, insult you and then block you for no reason. This thief/tracer will also accuse the original artists that they are the "thieves" and he is the victim, and randomly label the users who know of his thievry that they're "thieves" and that their art is "traced".

Not only is he doing this, he's also easily getting points and money from the art he traces.

His alternate account is here, which he uses to bypass blocks and comment on his own traced artwork - 1-ayane-plz.deviantart.com/

Hi there everyone I'm here to say in the past I have been hit by this user pikachurules she likes to copy other users oc's and then claim them as her own and doesn't give credit, we had a fight about this back in 2012 and I thought she would have the right mind to remove the image she copied from me.

She doesn't steal artwork like a lot of people do then upload it to her account, instead she see's something she likes she'll copy that character by drawing it herself and uploading it like a day or 2 after the other user has uploaded their image..

I don't see how she has been on for six years, and I don't see why DA cannot ban her for good, she has done this to me and my friends, and we all have had it with her and they just will not do anything about it and I just don't unerstand, and now she is targeting 2 other people and taking their ocs and claiming them as her own, saying "this is one of my ocs I haven't drawn in a while"

She says she's 24 years old, but if you look in her scraps there is a picture of her and she looks like 18 or so, but acts like she's 10 or younger, heck my nephews do not act like that and they are 10, and my son is 8 and doesn't act anything like this, but I guess only those whom are spoiled might?

She acts like if she gets her way she can have anything and DA can't touch her. So she keeps going on taking others ocs and claming them as her own, and in the process of this she is being flamed by many people telling her to stop, but if its something she doesn't like she tags it as spam or so and hides the comment.

So future ado, here is a few of my drawings she has copied from, and I wish she would give freaken credit or remove them!

although I don't have a image for that, its still my oc and she has stolen it claiming it as her own

There are images in her gallery she has copied from Syiren and ZAFTs-Prince Their ocs.

So then she started to copy 0Shiny0 oc's
THE COPY

Shiny's image

THE COPY -Same image twice
pikachurules.deviantart.com/ar…

Shiny's image
0shiny0.deviantart.com/art/0Sh…

then here is another person she is also coping their oc and claiming as their own and calling it a he when its really a she.  she shouldn't be taking cute ocs from people then saying its her own. poor YuNe0

THE COPY
pikachurules.deviantart.com/ar…

YuNe0's image
yune0.deviantart.com/art/Sorry…

and who's knows any other artworks of others she has taken, at one point we tried to shove her the same pain we where having by drawing her ocs and saying look at our cute oc isn't it cute, but it didn't seem to work and we had removed them all but this was back in 2012.. I just don't understand why this person wants to go this far and take someone's oc then to claim it as their own and not give credit.

xxfoxy-zeldaxx.deviantart.com/ - Using several adoptable bases and not providing credit to any of them. Has been asked by several people to credit, they ignore them and hide comments.
I asked nicely for them to credit the bases: sta.sh/0231dcqjm0lq and the comment was hidden and the reply I got was this sta.sh/02eeyvphxurt and they still haven't put proper credit to the base makers on any of their deviations where they've used a base

Almost all of this person's gallery is stolen. She claims its all her friends' (because of course Mr.Poninator himself have her permission to upload) and whines she can't upload. Only a few of the bases she's posted have credits, but most don't.

Nevermind, decided to report what I found anyway~ I found a way to search up the images and link them to the real DA owners. :)

The person who took the images, luckily, don't seem to be rude people or anything. So I didn't want to leave their name here.

I think I found one, her username is ToxicCatArts, and her gallery is so . . . odd.
The only comment on any of her work has been flagged for spam (odd, isn't it?) and she doesn't stay in one art group, she draws all of them it feels like.

Please check her out.

this kid copies art, or heavily references others art. Does not give credit and thinks he is exempt from it because it is "old". Also, if you point this out, kid goes on a tantrum spree. Tried to explain that what he is doing is wrong.  but nope. Felt like he was being attacked yet he was the one cussing. He thinks  because you add "one extra toe" in a heavily referenced piece of work no credit needs to be given yet you can point out the original source.

Update on Michelous...

sta.sh/0109ltrixczq

There's several hundred in his gallery. It's a slow process finding the originals as he's submitted the covers into over 900 groups and because the doujins are all in japanese.
