      What: Other (Explain Below)



    WHO: SnowPaw2927 , humansfurry12345

    WHERE: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/snowpaw2927/


    WHAT: Tracing digital artwork and making profit out of it.

    WHEN: July 9th 2018 — September 30th 2018

    EXPLAIN: I recently found out that an FA user named SnowPaw2927 has blatantly traced several of my artworks and made profit out of it! This person has tried to commission me in the past only to ghost on me. I then later this year find out that they are tracing several of my artworks without my permission and selling it as original commissions. 

    This person also repeatedly advertises that they take commissions within the virtual game "Second Life" and accepts Lindens (ingame currency), which can be converted into real money. Their gallery consist of mostly traced artworks of mine and other artists. Most of their profile descriptions and journals are also copy/pasted of others. They eventually took down my traced artworks (after some protest) from their gallery. 

    Initially I wasn't going to bother making an artist-beware, not until I found out that they were also making profit with this unethical behaviour and I want to prevent future scams or other artists getting ripped off. They've claimed to be a big fan of mine. But please, there is so many other ways to support an artist you look up to! Tracing their work and scamming people into commissioning that, is far from the right path to grow as an artist!
