This dude :iconthespinosaurusguy: is using fellow paleoartist Manabu Sakamotos work without permission and claiming essentially that these drawings belong to him. That's a big no no..

Heres an example:

Nice Allosaurus drawing from Manabus website…

(If the link doesnt work try going to…)

Manabus nice drawing in spinoguys DA gallery:

Wrong move pal. Now, Glendon Mellow aka. :iconglendonmellow: has been leading the charge by reporting this platant art theft to DA admins, and by leaving comments to Spinosaurusguys page. And now...well Spinosaurusguy has deleted Glendons comments and blocked Glendon.

Yeah now that's not going to fly is it?

Don't go and cuss him off or leave nasty comments or anything like that. Just report the stolen art to DA admins and if you wan't to leave a comment try to be civil.

It looks like the plagiarized works have been deleted. Yay!

Guess, I was late. The works are deleted, which is good.
I truly hate when things like this happen in dA.

Now this bastard is flagging as spam all comments pointing out his plagiarism. He is a dishonest little SOB who needs to be banned.

True dat. The insecure little punk should be grateful he isn't already banned, those comments were actually a pretty lenient wake-up call. If I was a DA admin, I wouldn't even leave a comment for him to "spam", I'd just delete his account and ban him outright. It's a shock that some, perhaps most people, don't even READ the DA policies and terms of use before creating an account. Though I figured even the dumbest of the people that never bothered to read the policies would still know beforehand that stealing other people's work is wrong. :x

Consider it a success. Every stolen image in his gallery got removed by staff (except for one of Ceratosaurus, but I'm sure it's on its way out too).

your first link leads nowhere :/

Hey those are some pretty good drawings by Manabu. Wonder why I'd never seen these before. Though I'm surprised there isn't a single sauropod on the list (being a sauropod fan this just seems a bit weird to me...) Thumbs up, he's a Gundam fan too 8-)
