Hello, it comes to my attention that this website has a ton of stolen artwork which have been edited.

Here is one of the victims

She was blocked by said thief.
Shame on you.
If the original artist asks you to take her painting down, do it.

A group of people on deviantART are now searching up original artists to alert them.

There isn't a way to report the image itself for theft which is extremely careless.


ASK FOR PERMISSION TO TAKE AND MODIFY IT.( I highly doubt you'll be allowed to sell the modified artwork however ).

They not selling the pictures they are simply releasing them for free. Yeah they should have gotten permission first but they are not selling them. I would think it was cool if someone used my artwork to make a cool animation as long as it was free. The person should have known though not to mess with deviantart as everyone is very protective there on their artwork.

I meant that as "if you wanted to sell it" not that they actually are. Though, you'll be surprised how many people are actually selling these in various locations on the webs.

People are noticing. Too bad not fast enough. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) ;
