Massive Art Theft SIte
** got a bunch of fandoms involved in this, and now the website is bizarrely slow or offline. I'm going to keep an eye on it for a few days to see what happens and let people know if they remain after. It's this Site: http://ucaser.com/ and cloudsofanarchy.com On Facebook this morning, in a fan group Im in, an account actually advertised products made out of my work to the group I am in. They have people's artwork obviously stolen from the internet, slapped ( in low res glory I'll bet) on all sorts of merchandise. They are advertising these actively to fangroups on Facebook for sale. Please pass this around, and I've seen other artwor
So dooooonnneee with theft (UPDATE)
So this person straight up took Zero, got a fur-suit made out of it, calls it their own character and goes to cons with it. Never gave permission for it :I Left comments on their instagram about how hurtful that was and if they could please change up the suit a bit. They deleted my comments and set their instagram to private. So that's fun >_> My friendo took screenies of it all - so I mean, if you see this person at a con, they're not a good person from my short experience with them =/ (All the screenies here: https://sta.sh/21s017x4t18t ) I'm feeling sick xD I put so much into Zero, so much of myself and years into him.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with this journal, I still expect everyone know how to behave. I do not tolerate harassment of anykind towards anyone!





 And since some people fail to see the difference between referencing and tracing. Here's excellent and simple journal to explain it to you: Tracing is Not Referencing (Tracing FAQ)


Edited on 4th of November, 2016!


To read the latest drama go here: Numyumy is a tracer!

Clamychan has came back with new account called Clamyart and continues tracing and scamming. Do not support her or her work. I was finally able to gather some evidence of her continuous tracing years after years.
If you would like to share this journal to raise awareness, I would be grateful.

Remember that selling traced work is basically stealing and therefore Illegal

Clamyart has had at least 7 accounts before this one (scroll to the very end if you wish to see the evidence) and for years she has been stealing art to make fast and easy money. This girl has no respect towards anyone's work and all that matters is if she only can benefit from it. There's no reasoning with her but I wish no one would ever buy her art or donate money for her. She does not care about her followers at all, to her only money speaks and it's shame for honest hard working artists trying to make a living out of their work, while this girl just steals from others. 



Old tracing drama from 2015




This it to warn you, not to trust this person. I once comforted her about her tracing on her old account and when she got caught she just fled to a new one (funny how I'm being blocked on her new account despise never talking to her in there) I hope you'd spread the word about this matter to raise awareness.


Anyway watch out for Clamychan. I hope that all of you could please stay civil and not harass the artist in question. But is it really right for people like her to get so popular and even get a DD? I don't think so. Dekomory is known tracer who always flees to a different account after being caught. She will hide all comments who try to be reasonable with her and blocks anyone who tries to call her out for it. she needs to be banned from this website. This tracing and lying just cannot continue.
She hes been previously known as Reiraseo or Tsubakie. On those accounts she got caught for tracing and even Selling it. She then made up petty excuses and sob stories before fleeing into this account.
Proof against her was posted on artist blogs on tumblr, till she asked all evidence to be removed "because everyone makes mistakes". You shouldn't trust on her apologies, since traces by accident and no one traces more than twice and claim it as "mistake". 
Capture By Kairi Sun-d8ebujv by MilanaMill
Here's proof about her previous tracing:
kawaiiartistconfessions.tumblr…

She got popular, because she puts her art on rarely used categories to hit a front page and then later moves it to right category, so no one can suspect her. 
Why would she do that? Well because miscategorizing your art on purpose is actually againsts DA's rules. So it's not all about "hard work", it's about cheating. 
here's proof:
This isn't sci-fi art.

Here's arguments by other people about Dekomory not being new:




I still don't trust Dekomory on some stuff she says (Or actually I don't know anymore;; I'm not against anyone here or anything I'm just being curious tbh lol), she said on her update that she doesn't know ReiraSeo..: "I really like Hinahara's art, I don't know if she is ReiraSeo or whoever. I didn't know ReiraSeo. Hinahara is a reference for me, like other artists too. If my art is similar to them, IT'S JUST NORMAL, for many people, creating your own style is to mix the things that you like it from your idols." But I think she IS ReiraSeo/Hinahara because of this: web.archive.org/web/2014070111… (It's a site that records a lot of data from the past) I'm not sure if the link works for everyone but anyways if you look at ReiraSeo's gallery, it looks pretty dang similar to Zeronis' art and Dekomory's kawaii art (Like shown in this journal: Dekomory is a tracer!) But also notice how the past works of ReiraSeo's went from kawaii to semi-realism just like how Dekomory did.. Okay but wait, now click the second page of the gallery and holy cow it doesn't direct you to the next page as you wanted it to, it directs you to Hinahara's dA page and it says "Formerly ReiraSeo"!! Okay now if you look at Hinahara's art (Which is is there today) looks at the first picture called "Hi DA!" Wait what?? Weren't you were here already?? Description: "Hello, my name is Hinahara etooo... but you can call me Hina-chan ! i///□///i Nice to meet you ///~/// I hope you enjoy my art and I hope we be friends ! ///^///" I look forward to upload my drawings ///A///" -.- Are you freaken serious!? You are NOT new here!! And also if you look at Hinahara's latest art, that art was uploaded on December 25, 2014 and ever since then, she didn't upload anything again.. Okay now go to Dekomory's first upload, called "Hello dA!!!", this art was uploaded on December 26, 2014 RIGHT AFTER Hinahara stopped making art and then holy crap look at the signature/logo on the picture, doesn't that font look familiar?? Look back at Hinahara's arts and look at her signature/logo, IT'S THE SAME EXACT FONT!! (I think it is lol, but I'm pretty sure it is) DOES THIS LOOK FISHY TO YOU OR WHAT!? And then after the 1st picture she made, the signature/logo changes font.. I wonder why.. Oh yeah did I mention Dekomory and Hinahara both speak Spanish? How do I know? Well if you look through ReiraSeo's dA profile through the site I gave you, it says she's from Spain and you can see that she's already speaking it on her profile lol, and if you look at Dekomory's profile comments some of them are in Spanish which means some people knew she speaks it.. But wait hold on, I'm not done yet here, wanna look at Hinahara's/ReiraSeo's past history?? Click on the link I gave you (ReiraSeo's dA profile) and see how it says next to her username it says "Formerly MiuMiusArt"? Lets search that name on Google, shall we? In the first link that shows up, it shows Tsubakie Chan's YouTube channel.. Okay now look at this journal: Dekomory is a tracer!  , at the top it shows in the picture her name (The same name) so that does tell that Hinahara IS Tsubakie according to this journal.. Also I'm going to point this out from ReiraSeo's PaigeeWorld: www.paigeeworld.com/u/reiraseoRead her descriptions for each picture she posted on there and realize how she always say: "Drawn with Manga Studio"? Okay now, you know that Dekomory draws with Manga Studio too (Shown in her speedpaints on YouTube and said on her Picarto account) There could be more evidences that shows that Dekomory is Hinahara that I don't know about yet.. but according to this research and my inferences, I'm VERY positively sure that Dekomory is Hinahara.. Okay so let's look back at Dekomory's statement she made on her latest journal update, she states: "I really like Hinahara's art, I don't know if she is ReiraSeo or whoever. I didn't know ReiraSeo." Rethink what she told you, she's NOT telling the truth!! Okay so I'm going to post this on her journal too and see if she blocks me and does whatever to this comment, and if she does, I now know that she's hiding the truth and doesn't want anyone to see it lol (Sorry for my bad grammar btw if it was)
Jumping on this bandwagon because, for me, it's so plainly clear. I understand how a lot of people are unsure or want to side with this Dekomory; I get it, she DOES have her own level of talent despite the tracing and her victimizing journals can get the better of your emotions (as so neatly phrased by the comment below mine). 

Here are some observations from my end, however, on proving that Tsubakie/MiusMiusArt/Hinahara/ReiraSeo is Dekomory (with additions from AhyunChan's comment):
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Keep in mind: I VERY MUCH KNOW THERE ARE COINCIDENCES. But the fact that there are SO MANY compiled into this case is so very fishy??? Why am I doing this you might ask? It's an insult to artists to see someone who blatantly TRACES get a DD and so much attention. We work our asses off creating pieces from scratch while she's getting an award handed to her after copying someone else's hard work.

Also keep in mind: Tsubakie IS MiuMiusArt IS ReiraSeo IS Hinahara (IS Dekomory [what I'm trying to prove]).
Tsubakie = MiuMiusArt proof:
www.youtube.com/user/MiuMiusAr…
MiuMiusArt = ReiraSeo = Hinahara proof:
miumiusart.deviantart.com/
reiraseo.deviantart.com/
Hinahara= Tsubakie: I will leave this DA account (Read it please)
Last keep in mind: I will be using the names Hinahara and ReiraSeo interchangeably. Why, if they're the same person?
Hinahara's gallery is still publicly available, so when I mention that name, I am referring to what's in that gallery currently: hinahara.deviantart.com/galler…
ReiraSeo, even though it is the same account as Hinahara, is me referring to her account back when it had the old deviations and name: web.archive.org/web/2014072317…

Moving on:



Point Right Yes, they both appear to speak Spanish.
Point Right They both have said they use Manga Studio.
Point Right Their use of kawaii stitching "- - - - -".
Point Right Their affinity with Hatsune Miku.
Point Right Their affinity with CLAMP.
Point Right The titles and concept of greeting deviations. Hinahara's "Hi DA!" and Dekomory's "Hello DA !!!".
Point Right They both tag deviations with "#sweet" or "#sweet[eyes/girl/etc]" despite the content of the deviation??? That's really specific IMO. Hinahara VS Dekomory. Have a look through their galleries for more.
Point Right Same use of this specific design doily???—Hinahara's VS Dekomory's.
Point Right Hinahara's OC and Dekomory's OC 's ear piercings.
Point Right The way they ink collarbones as thick dips—ReiraSeo 1 + ReiraSeo 2 VS Dekomory.
Point Right Their interaction with Yamio—Hinahara VS Dekomory.
Point Right Exact same tweet tags and style??? Come on now—Hinahara VS Dekomory.
Point Right Just to prove to you that Dekomory is capable of lying about who she isn't, see here that Hinahara is still pretending she's not Tsubakie, even though the proof from earlier proves that Tsubakie = Hinahara.

WOW this is just icing on the cake. Why even!? Just to prove she's not Hinahara, she'd purposely interact with her in plain sight. Nice.

Conclusion: Why is any of this relevant? Okay, so what if she is them? Because if Tsubakie = MiuMiusArt = ReiraSeo = Hinahara = Dekomory, then that's full-on PROOF that she is a tracer despite her words, "THIS IS THE ONLY TRUTH: I DIDN'T TRACE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE, and I'LL NEVER DO IT." as quoted from here and archived here just in case :) (Smile)
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Here's my personal thought:

Basically it started with Tsubakie and Reira-seo who were both tracers and scammers (there's proof in journal and she even admitted it herself), later they admitted being a same person. Tsubakie became inactive and Reira-seo gave her account to her "friend" Hinahara. Hina was denying being same person as Tsubakie when asked (aka reira-seo). Then Deko came along and Hina suddenly went inactive. Hina gave Deko points, advertised her in her journal and acting all buddy with her, even though Deko had only been there for a less than a week. Later Hina made a journal stating that she's going to close her account, because she cannot handdle two accounts at the same time and will be moving to tsubakie.(proof: Hinatsu)
. So basically Hina, tsubakie and reira-seo are all the same person but now the tsubakie has deactivated. People started to investigate and realized, that tsubakies old username used to be Miumiusart and then people found out that Miumiusarts old account is actually Meduss4. So basically Meduss4, Miumiusart, tsubakie, reira-seo and hinahara are all the same person. If you google meduss4 you'll find this picture:

E8030903d4e0f4da631109cbbdae2aa2 by MilanaMill  Wyrm By Dekomory-d8eefcu by MilanaMill  
Aren't these kinda similar in way? Same gradient colors, floating petals, same expression, same angle, same floaty hair and same shading style. The only difference is colors and style. 

Now I'd also like you to know that all these people are spanish, have cintic, use manga studio, admire exactly same artists, Reira-seo traced from Zeronis as well, they all like Ahri or have drawn fan-art of her (From lol), they were also both born on 12th march and are about 20 years old: i.imgur.com/ubpOfXi.jpg, i.imgur.com/qwcO38V.png. Someone had a bigger list but cannot remember. The funny thing is that Deko matches to all of those, except that she haven't done fan-art of ahri. 

So this could prove that Deko is actually former tracer and scammer called Hinahara/tsubakie/reira-seo/Miumiusart/Meduss4.

Maybe you should catch up yourself about the topics before you rant about them.

Numyumy's Style comes close to Sakimi Chans cause N. is supporting her on patreon and works with her tutorials.

So please get your shit together and stop hating about other people when you haven't got the right information to do so.

Thank you.

First you're commenting on wrong journal. Second no painting can line up so perfectly by free hand. Also no one is denying that she can draw her own stuff but it doesn't disprove her tracing either. It's not the question of style, it's the question of numyumy's paintings lining up almost perfectly to some of the art made by not only sakimi but other artists as well.
annemarie-broeder's avatar
annemarie-broederStudent Digital Artist
But why should she trace when she could do it on her own? And have you seen the paintings of the older artists of history? Did they trace as well cause they painted their pictures so perfectly? When you say she is a tracer cause she paint too perfectly, than is Charlie Bowater a tracer, sakimi chan and others as well. Art is something you can train and learn. When you invest enough time than you could draw and paint photorealisticly. no joke. 
Yes some pictures seem similar and the styles too, but thats not something we should hate on her. Everyone has a few references which he uses. It might be a pose or whatever. Thats not tracing. 
When you would see her Videos on YouTube, especially this one: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MnaoX… then you know thats she paints everything on her own. Maybe with some reference. And why should she not? Not everybody can paint poses or faces out of imaginary. Its nothing to be ashamed of or to hating about.
I hate it, when people denying an artist because of his skills in which he invested much time and probably money, only cause he is "too perfectly". 
whatever. go on with whatever this might be. dont believe her. but one day, when you have reached the same level, there will be a group that will say the same about you and your art. 
So, have a nice day. ^^

"But why should she trace when she could do it on her own?" Cause she's lazy or straight up not good at art.
"
When you say she is a tracer cause she paint too perfectly, than is Charlie Bowater a tracer, sakimi chan and others as well." That wasn't what she said if you read the sentence correctly. She was saying that Deko's lines matched up too well with Sakimi's lines, hence Deko was tracing.
"
Art is something you can train and learn. When you invest enough time than you could draw and paint photorealistically. no joke. " This is something all artists know, but clearly from all the evidence shown above this is not the case and also learn how to spell, photorealistically, right. Deko traced to the point of even the facial features lining up.
"When you would see her Videos on YouTube" Obviously Deko isn't that dumb as to broadcast her tracing, so of course she's going to use her own skill in the vids, but even then you can see the difference in the drawings she's traced and the one's she did on her own.
Using references isn't what Deko is being shamed for, it's for the obvious tracing/copying.
"
I hate it, when people denying an artist because of his skills in which he invested much time and probably money, only cause he is "too perfectly"." Once again read the OP's sentence cause this isn't what she said/stated.
"
but one day, when you have reached the same level, there will be a group that will say the same about you and your art." Nobody assumes of tracing unless they have proof, so awks.

You clearly didn't read any of the comments didn't you. 
See the issue here is that her art is not consistent. Sorry to say but in some of her pictures the anatomy is just plain bad, this video example you sent me for example looks really really bad tbh. The anatomy is so messed up, foreshorting doesn't work, her spine is twisted beyond possibilities and the shading is all over the place. See some of her older works (which have been proved to be traced) were much much better than this one for example, just look at my journal about numyumu.
Numyumu can draw pretty faces but she falls flat on basically everything else. She does not have one illustration in her gallery with fully detailed and rendered background. The only picture she has is a classroom and even that is painted over a 3d model offered by her program. 
She traces, because she needed attention fast and tracing saves time and effort. When you trace you can post more art, more often that is also better quality than your own. 
Nothing in numy's art is "perfect" the only thing that is perfect is how perfectly it LINES UP With the pictures she traced. There are gifs in my journal just go and look. milanamill.deviantart.com/jour… here's even a link for you.
Azrael-Santi's avatar
Couldn't agree more to :iconmilanamill: .. the inconsistency of her artworks are suspicious... and it's not the usual inconsistency suffered by normal artists, it's the kind which make you question why she does so poorly on her new ones while her old artworks are god-like professional level..
MilanaMill's avatar
MilanaMillHobbyist Digital Artist
Couldn't have said it better. It's understandable that when you push out a lot of art the quality is gonna drop but that doesn't mean that you suddenly unlearn to draw all over again. Like I'm sorry for being harsh but her new art proves that she has no idea what she's doing. Even her newest anatomy studies make absolutely no sense at all.

Why do people insist on stealing when they can simply learn from tutorials or even ask a fellow artist for their opinions?? Tracing c'mon, we all did that when we were kids, time to grow up. Referencing as stated is a GOOD thing it helps us to build certain skills with drawing just looking and drawing a few lines.

I remember when I first started on dA I was using bases and giving credit to the artist (I THINK WE ALL WENT THROUGH THIS PHASE) and that's okay cause we were just starting out digitally.

The internet now has turned into this massive library with heaps of helpful resources, just even watching how other people draw on YouTube is helpful but DON'T steal their work.

I learnt how to draw through school in art classes that paid off and even outside of school there are heaps of learning opportunities for artist who are wanting to improve. Now when I want to draw something digitally I would draw it on paper and scan it but that's still something that has been done from scratch.

And as an artist have a wide variety of skills eg. knowing how to draw both anime/manga and semi-realism and even knowing how to use different materials. As an artist you don't have to draw the same thing over-and-over again for example if you rarely draw trees, learn how to draw one.

"The simplest of things start with a circle and a line"

WHY STEAL WHEN YOU CAN LEARN??
AimForrest's avatar
AimForrestHobbyist Digital Artist
Because some people don't want to learn. They take the easy, often illegal, way out.
Mikkie15's avatar
Mikkie15Student General Artist
That or they don't have the time or the patience to do it or are just flat out lazy. As for illegal it all falls under the copyright law and legislations often leading to fines, it may also partially fall under theft depending how bad it is. But yes I see where you are coming and the things I have stated are all based from the country I live in (Australia)
