So, I've had pieces swiped from here and I've just had a buddy of mine have HIS art swiped here. I had another buddy have his art swiped here and then had someone SELLING that art as THEIR originals a few weeks back. I'm kinda getting tired of it. Tracing someone else's line art and calling it your own is NOT original artwork. You have just COPIED someone else. If you want to learn how to draw that way, that perfectly ok. Lots of people get their start that way. Claiming that you are the original artist without linking who originally drew it is NOT.  

I am not pulling down what is up here at DevArt. however from here on out, I won't be posting any new artwork. This has gotten too severe and I work too hard to let this continue. When you steal artwork, In many cases you are taking food out of people's mouths. Also, that makes you a pretty crappy human being. 

I'll still be making new artwork, and doing shows and making comics. I'll still be posting about those shows and will always be open to give advice, chat or talk about art. I just want to make it harder for art thieves to get the art I work for hours on, just because they want to make a quick buck or be heard in the worst way possible in this community. 

If you see any art theft, report it immediately. As an artist, it's kinda your duty, cause you might be next.
