    I bought a reference sheet from an artist, and King21 traced it to fill orders and sell them as original pieces.

     

    My reference sheet
    The reference sheet they sold the first person
    The reference sheet they sold the second person
    Proof that they actually uploaded it, meaning that someone had bought the art from them. (paid $$$).

    Patreon post 1
    Patreon post 2
    Proof that it's almost a carbon copy: 

    Superimpose (front)
    Superimpose (back) 
    Superimpose (second sheet) 


    I put them on top of each other and decreased the opacity. Surely you'd agree that they traced my bought work, right? Sure, they changed some proportions like the ears, hand/paw, eyes, etc but that's very easy to do as an artist once you have the base. Hell, I could do it, and I have zero experience in art.While they aren't scamming me directly, I feel like they're scamming other people who are expecting original works, so that should be enough?

    ...... Wow that is really scummy, and something just doesn't feel right from their DA and patreon gallery their style looks completely inconsistent like they eyeball completely different styles and selling it.

    Yeah, and the fact that they were so quick to remove the offending pics from their gallery makes me think that they knew exactly what they were doing, or have been caught before. I wish I archived the FA submission pages so FA staff would actually take action on him.They just take the stance that "It's not on our site anymore therefore it's not our problem"

    Sadly i would not be surprised by that response at all from the trouble tickets. Though nothing really surprised me anymore from FA. 

    Though sorry you had such an awful experience on FA.
