Yet another case of art thief public shaming. I usually don't make a fuss when people just repost my art but this one got me really pissed off and let me tell you why.
The drawing in question was this one i posted yesterday (see below). And the thief took it, removed my watermark, mirrored ir and posted it on reddit here https://www.reddit.com/r/2007scape/comments/ae5hn5/kebos_lowlands_konar_fanart/
Now what pissed me off was that people started asking him if his commissions are open and he said yes, so basically he lures people with my art and then scams them maybe doesn't even deliver any art, or gives his own art. I cannot let my art be used to scam people, this has gone too far. And then taint my name when the commissioner doesn't get what he wanted.
People recognized my art and called him out so he erased the reddit post but i did some digging and found his artstation where i sent him a message.
This is his artstation https://www.artstation.com/dolkman
and his name is Fredrik Persson, from Sweden apparently.
I found a small thumbnail of his edit of my art and but the whole thing was erased because he erased the thread, but you can get an idea of what it looked like
If you look at his art (i posted it below), you'll notice it's not that bad, he still has a way to go but he could ask for commissions using his own art. But instead of working his ass off to improve, he thinks taking an easy route will help him somehow, but it does nothing but damage his name and mine.
In case he erases his artstation too, i will link some of his art on my page from stash so you can see for yourself and form an opinion.
