In recent days it seems that I've been the victim of some pretty serious art theft by one or more deviant art members. In fact, I've recieved messages that one of the thiefs actually recieved a Daily Deviation with one of my paintings....

To help calrify who's art is who's:) Here is another painting from one of my book projects. I hope you enjoy..

lol i thought you were saying his drawing was awful and then i was like WHAT?! IT'S AMAZING!!! and then i realized you were talking about the art theft. which then i agree is awful, because all his art is amazing and to have it stolen would be a shame :(

...holy crap, i have neglected my deviantART like woah.

but yes!
art theft is a horrible, horrible thing.
and i'm always super impressed with cityscapes and junk, so i'm way into things like these.
and unfortunately, they're relatively easy to duplicate and "sell" as your own. :(

This looks like Salt Lake City, only with more polution, if such a thing were possible.

maybe you shouldn't post any full-sized art or something like that. It doesn't make sense to keep posting these if they keep getting plagiarized!

So why would someone be dumb enough to try to pass off someone else's obvious artwork as their own?

Can't they just create their own art???
