Art TheftUnfortunately as of late there has been a lot of art theft going on on DeviantART. People creating new accounts and pulling random art and submitting it as their own. People have also or tried to submit this stolen art to groups, ours being one of them. It gets really noticeable when one of us goes to check on group messages and the submitted piece has already been removed within a few short hours.Art Theft by #TMNT-Brotherhood
Because of this we will not be accepting art from new DeviantART accounts that are under a year old unless we are absolutely 100% positive it is original art from this person. We will also report any stolen art we see to administrators.
Not many people know how it feels or can word how it feels when art is stolen from an artist, but *Hummerhouse did a darn good job doing so and you can read it at http://hummerhouse.deviantart.com/journal/Art-Theft-351215202
