First of all, your link does not work. That is a shame because I'd really like to know who stole my picture. The owner of this site => [link]
asked me for permission to offer this picture as a coloring page a few years back. Noone else has permission to use this image. If you didn't find this pic at the Skytemple of Lugia and Articuno, I'd really like to ask you, where else it is used.
I did this image in 2005.
If you compare the drawing style to the style of the other pictures in my gallery, you will realize, that it is the same style.
(But you probably don't know about drawing styles, as you don't seem to be an artist. You only post images made by other people – which actually IS against DeviantArt's rules. DeviantArt is a site to submit your own art. This is not Photobucket!)
I could also tell you about the people, who saw the original drawing on paper before I ever submitted it anywhere or about the original drawing and sketch, which I probably have still lying around somewhere – but I really don't feel like having to explain myself to you. You obviously did poor research on the matter and the way you rudely commented on my picture hints to you being a fairly young and unexperienced internet user. So I'll give you some hints, instead:
I think it is a good thing that people bring attention to art thieves. The way you tried to do it, however, is not the propper way. But this time you made a fool of yourself for going after the original artist like that.
Revealing art thieves needs propper research. You need to pay attention to some important details, before you can judge anyone. The most revealing are:
• the date of posting => often the person who posted the image first, is the original artist
• the context of posting => an example: a gallery containing images with a continuous drawing style points to the original artist rather than the use of the image on some fan site
• the size of the image can give hints => however, some artists (like me) offer their images in the original size
I know my comment might be not the frindliest response but I have to admit that I feel quite offended by your rude comment and by the fact that you did snap at me like that without doing propper research.
