And one of the most barefaced I met so far o.o

This person :icondinos4ever: used my Lugia-Lineart ( his: dinos4ever.deviantart.com/art/… , mine: Neomae.deviantart.com/art/Lugi… ), didn't give credit and even pretended to have drawn the piece himself in the comments below "his" picture. When I pointed out that the lineart was actually mine and asked to be given credit, this deviant's only reaction was to hide my comments and obviously block me from his account so I cannot write any comment or note regarding his unauthorized use of my artwork any more.
I reported the incident and hope that the DA staff will take his deviation down. Wish me luck ^^

EDIT:
His deviation was taken down be the DA staff. He re-uploaded the deviation (dinos4ever.deviantart.com/art/…) emidiatly and still denies that I'm the original artist.
Here is his new description: "yes i know it is a coloring page so if you dare comment about it i will cuse you out in so many ways that i would make the geto look like super happy land. you got that for all of you in the back of the class."
In a comment on a reply he states: "oh i read them all (*the comments I wrote about this being my lineart*) and went though there art they did not have it and when i found it it was 3 years 2 years ago at some coloring page site i just spent 5 mins looking for that pic i don't know where the site went to i will try to find it but most likely i will not find it."

So he seriously says I DID NOT draw this lineart. This is getting more and more rediculous!

:bulletred: My picture was uploaded in 2005, so no problem proving anything about the time.

:bulletred: :iconarticuno: asked me for permission to put it on her Lugia-webpage www.lugia.us/colouring-pages.h… as a coloring page. So he might have gotten it from there. On this page the terms of use are clearly stated:

***
Below is a bunch of colouring pages for you to practice with. These pages have been created by:
falcontress85.deviantart.com
neomae.deviantart.com/ &n…<= my DA account*)
sareii.deviantart.com
kitsune-dragonite.deviantart.c…

Do not redistribute these images without full credit to the original artists listed above. WHEN YOU'VE FINISHED COLOURING THEM AND YOU WANT TO POST THEM ONLINE, SAY WHERE YOU GOT THEM FROM.

Just click the link to the images, copy, save or print them and have fun!

IMPORTANT: These images are in really high resolution so that you can resize them how you wish without quality loss, we all know that if you try to increase the size of an image it will look horrible :>
***

:bulletred: Even if he might have gotten it from somewhere else, the way he did react to my comment was absolutely  disrespectful and childish. Him having not found this deviation in my gallery is almost a miracle as I put a direkt link in the comments he hid.

He hides every comment and blocks everyone from his account who points out that this lineart is originally by me.
So I have no way to contact him about this matter in any way. Please help and bring this journal to his attention.

I reported his deviation again.

Just report his whole site instead of just the pic. May out what you have here, and hope DA admin are smart enough to deal with him appropriately.

Sadly, the ONLY way you're going to get your point across on his page or the 'art' is by making another account. But if you do that, DA will accuse you of being a troll and then you yourself will be banned. We just have to spread the news and get everyone to assist in gettin his stupid ass banned. Hopefully his IP, too.

But, honestly, I wouldn't contact him. You could get into trouble and he'll most likely block that account as well.

He keeps this up, he'll be banned (whooo!) and hopefully his club will no longer be functioning because of it.

All he did was use the paint bucket on your line work, and then he has the gall to say he found it in a coloring book. Other tracers at least try to disguise their theft, but this guy... man, this is just sad. Well, I reported him.

Anyone who does borrow another person's artwork should at least give the original artist credit and embed a link to the site

Just wanted to tell you that it'll be alright. I reported their "work" as stolen deviation and that they didn't credit you for the lineart.

I was ticked when I couldn't reply to our (you and me) conversation. I can't believe he'd do that. He doesn't deserve to be called a poke'artist or any artist at all for that matter!

I have to admit I was pretty surprised myself. Usually when I get into this kind of situation I get a reply like "Oh, I'm so sorry, I didn't mean it!", then they add credit to the description and everything is well. I don't understand people like him, who try to keep it up in such a hard way.

This has got to stop. Those idiots can't even try to practice on their own and they think they can just steal your artwork...no your hard artwork that took you maybe an hour or longer.
