Just recently an old piece of art of my from way back was stolen, pathetically altered then uploaded by another user claiming it as their own original piece. A watcher of mine noticed the abomination and left me a message. This old piece is stolen a lot so it was routinely reported then on with life.

Only what followed was a rather large tantrum by the art thief and it's few mindless followers. I'm assuming since all the art in their gallery is altered stolen images, and their ID pics are stolen from some guys facebook or something that they're just a big troll.

But ignoring all of that, I'm quite surprised by the amount of people whom I don't even know, and I assume, are maybe watchers of mine? that have come out to defend my old work and do what they can to bring down the art thief. I'm sure it has little to do with me personally and more to do with the fact that this place is an artistic community and artists just hate to see stolen work claimed and defended in a childish manner.

I never asked anybody to make gifs, comparison pictures, journal entries or go hunting the internet to find every (obvious) flaw in all the stolen pieces. But they did, and they're awesome because of it.

I wont link to the stolen piece, the fake account or any of the journals because none of it needs any more attention. But I appreciate what everybody has done, stealing art is distasteful and I'm glad so many people feel strongly about it.

Update:
The stolen art has been taken down by DA, that was harder than it should have been lol but good job!

Hey dude! I went through all of your works and think that you're absolutely marvelous! In fact, They're so marvelous that they're horrible! XDDDD That's just my way of saying how good they are. You have earned a watch.
And I heard what happened with this one piece of art you had with an art thief. He manipulated so many people just to claim your brilliance his, and I'm so sorry for that.
