Great job. I love the shading techniques, and I hope that everyone saying that you "copied" this realizes that you used stock as reference, which is completely fine, and you shaded on your own, and everything else. I love it-- you're very talented!~

Actually :devxXForensicXArtistXx: seems to have picked up on the local (incorrect) gossip.

I did actually draw this back in 2000 using either an HB or 2B pencil on heavyweight paper based on photo reference.

I scanned it in 2001 so i could submit it and the scanning process gave it the mild sort of sepia tone it has which I preferred to the black and white original. In 2002 I made some minor alterations to increase the dark in the dark areas and I changed the shadow behind the jawbone.

I'm sorry to hear there's gossip going on about your art :(
that's not good..
I just didn't want to be rude to anyone... I never even saw anyone else upload this drawing. plus, why in the world would a staff member upload a drawing they didn't make? maybe it's kinda like a game of 'telephone', where one person tells someone else something and they hear it or perceive it wrong. ^^;

how do you explain the drawing located here: realitysquared.deviantart.com/…

Submitted in 2002.. And you can tell by the image itself that it is a drawing he did.. 

Can you prove he did not draw it?. if not. then stop calling him a thief.

If it was a drawing he did then surely he'd have labelled it correctly.... I'm pretty sure it isn't a leopard.....

Looks like a leopard to me.

Perhaps maybe if you were to look at everything from every point of view instead of attacking because ONE MEMBER didn't like his decision.. he should be labeled as a thief..

Now, again. Do you have proof he had stolen it?

It may look like a leopard but I'm pretty sure it's a jaguar.... Leopards have bigger ears and slightly smaller noses...

you know, it is really highly irrelevant, if this is mislabeled and it depicts actually a jaguar.

.... Not really seeing as... Any RESPECTFUL artist would re-search what they're actually drawing... Unless of course they stole it or traced it.

oh really! Well then I'm so sorry... :(

I suppose I assumed he wouldn't take it from someone, since he's a staff member. 
and the staff usually make sure art DOESN'T get stolen ya know?

They don't do a good job making sure art isn't stolen. While this isn't stolen, this admin let a traced image go just, because the person who traced colored it differently, an made a different hair style. Everything matched line for line, but tracing is accepted on DA. So if I went into your gallery right now, traced something and posted it as a different color with something ever so slightly altered this good sir would not mind at all =3 It's pretty awesome really, we get to trace and claim stuff as our own on this site ^_^

hmm...well that's news to me because I remember when people stole my art and refused to take it down I reported them and the staff did end up removing it...and it was traced. :/

yeah.. hmm that's not good he would do something like that... :( do you know who really drew this picture? Maybe he'll take down the picture if the person who made it asks him politely. I had someone trace my art and when I asked the person to take it down they did lol

Unlikely as the original image was filed as stock.... And he's "justified" stealing artwork due to the fact that if we file our stuff as stock or even upload anything... It is free for public use....

Violent-Rainbow Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
sorry if this is a dumb question but does stock mean you can use the image with the artist's permission? ^^; I have seen people use that word but not sure the definition...

According to most people but I believe it's always nice to ASK the artist ... and then credit them :3

Well a lot of artists who draw realism draw from real life or photos. :) I don't think he used anyone else's work, he probably drew it from a realistic photo. (not trying to be mean just saying lol)
