Just something that is bothering me. I'm am not trying to be a hater here, but I am having issues with a certain "artist" on DA. This timgrayson.deviantart.com/ and myself have never had words, and has done nothing to me, but from what I can tell, is practically stealing art, and trying to pass it off as his own. I randomly stumbled across this person while browsing art one night, and from a distance I thought wow, how amazing is this? But then I began to notice something odd. I recognized some of the works as photographs, and the art seemed too good for a pencil artist except for a couple odds and ends. Too photo realistic. It didn't add up right, the quality of work on the main focus is amazing, and yet the objects (that didn't seem to fit in) look low quality compared to the main focus. So, I decided to investigate. From what I have seen, the majority of his "works" are pictures he has found on the internet, mostly adult models, copied them and used some sort of picture to drawing program, and then adding a cape or tiara, then tries to pass it off as his art. And to top it off, he then sells it on ebay. That truly pisses me off. Anyone else notice this?

 

If I am wrong in this, and he posts a video showing him actually drawing these works, then I will be the first to apologize and congratulate him on his talent.
