Peppicatred / Felineattraction / Spike

Hello, everyone. I tried searching the tags to see if this person has already been reported here, and I can't seem to find a post on them. But, if another one has already been made I will be happy to append this post as a comment on it, and have this one removed.

This post is about a person who goes by many names, her current ones are:
http://felineattraction.deviantart.com/ - DEACTIVATED
http://felineattraction.sheezyart.com/
Peppicatred
skitzmix (her known name on furcadia)

In the past she has gone as Spike or some variant of it with numbers, I know she was banned from FA and then permabanned from FA for trying to dodge her ban.

The most recent trace she has done is of my own artwork:
http://tinypic.com/r/25f7u4i/7
http://felineattraction.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d48i1v3

Original can be seen in the following places as well as my FA icon. these images also appear in my DA, zodiacspothole:
http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5967455/
http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5967439/
http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5967438/

And here is an image layover of the two:
http://tinypic.com/r/2s81no1/7

She has blocked me on two or three of my DA accounts for calling her out on tracing in the past. her and I have also had a conversation in Furcadia about her tracing, some time back.

07/12/11 20:12:45 Zodiac: Answer me honestly. Why do you keep tracing?
07/12/11 20:12:59 Zodiac: Are you trying to troll people
07/12/11 20:13:08 skitzmix: i stopped, untill that one from dayna because she kept pming me on furc alt market
07/12/11 20:13:08 Zodiac: #So#Sl#Sp Draw me, I'm an art whore. [ <a href="http://is.gd/51tiK">ALTS FOR SALEZ</a> ][ <a href="http://is.gd/51tgT">Commissions Open</a> ][ WHAT THE CRACK MAN!? - <a href="http://is.gd/51tjh">Lol Zodi</a> ]
07/12/11 20:13:28 Zodiac: Why "did" you do it
07/12/11 20:13:38 Zodiac: Why do you keep "stopping" and then doing it again
07/12/11 20:13:50 skitzmix: i did that one of daynas because she pissed me off
07/12/11 20:13:52 Zodiac: And why every time someone catches you do you argue with them and insist you are not/
07/12/11 20:14:13 Zodiac: And, do you understand that these are all the reasons why people don't like you?
07/12/11 20:14:17 Zodiac: It really baffles me
07/12/11 20:14:20 skitzmix: because people are jerks
07/12/11 20:14:33 Zodiac: People are jerks because you are acting in a way that makes them not like you
07/12/11 20:14:35 skitzmix: i just want to be left alone :(
07/12/11 20:14:37 Zodiac: So they have no reason to be nice to you
07/12/11 20:14:44 Zodiac: Then why bother coming online if you want to be left alone/
07/12/11 20:15:00 skitzmix: i have a few friends in furc
07/12/11 20:15:02 Zodiac: You keep doing all of this shit to push people away but then you get mad when people treat you like shit
07/12/11 20:15:20 Zodiac: You can't just pull the kind of crap you have and expect people to be your friend
07/12/11 20:15:23 Zodiac: It doesn't work like that
07/12/11 20:15:26 skitzmix: Look ill try to be a better person. 
07/12/11 20:15:28 skitzmix: i know that
07/12/11 20:15:42 Zodiac: Well I have to be completely honest, I don't beieve you right now
07/12/11 20:15:45 Zodiac: If I ever see it, then fine
07/12/11 20:15:55 skitzmix: ok, but i swear ill change
07/12/11 20:15:59 Zodiac: But as of right now i have no reason to think you will do anything else than what you always have
07/12/11 20:16:02 skitzmix: if it means people leave me alone.
07/12/11 20:16:06 skitzmix: then i will change
07/12/11 20:16:15 Zodiac: People will leave you alone if you stop doing things to make them bother yo

07/12/11 20:17:49 skitzmix: wish me luck :P
07/12/11 20:19:45 Zodiac: Now that you have posted all of that you know if you ever post traced artwork again the shitstorm is going to be 10 times worse
07/12/11 20:19:57 Zodiac: Just FYI thats how the internet works
07/12/11 20:20:08 Zodiac: People are going to be waiting for you to slip up

07/12/11 20:20:29 skitzmix: I will stop this time i promise if it means the crap will stop
07/12/11 20:51:22 skitzmix: http://fav.me/d3nl2w2
07/12/11 20:51:27 skitzmix: its done

She has several other incidents of tracing in the past, and she is especially known by many for tracing/stalking Rynies, Pez, and many of their friends. Heres some screen shots I still have of past incidents, I'll find more of them if I can.

This image was traced from a drawing by Rynies, and we reported it. Either herself or DA chose to remove it, we aren't sure, and then she uploaded it again in a different color.

Here is a layover:
http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e145/TangiaKira/57dd7780.jpg

Again, I'm sorry if there is already a post on this person, I tried to find one and I couldn't. Please tell me if there has already been one made.
 
EDIT MARCH 19th 2012: Since this post, I have had NO contact with this person what so ever - up util around the time when she came posting comments on this journal. I did not reply to her in any of them, but she chose to come into one of my streaming sessions and bring things up - I kicked her and she came back repeatedly with the subject. Finally, she left but returned under a fake name - first pretending to be curious about a situation this pretend person 'knew nothing about' - then defending peppi in a matter of minutes having suddenly become fully informed on the subject. I have a bit of log from the incident, but I don't see any reason to post it, but I can if it is necessary.

I know that as usual, she has claimed that she is no longer tracing people, but as I have said in comments I will not believe this til I see it in action for a long, long time. What I am about to share with you is not exactly a case of direct tracing, but I am sure you will see the kind of similarities that I do.

By her : http://felineattraction.deviantart.com/#/d4syzsn  
( Will replace with a screen shot, if she deletes this post )

( View the screenshot here: http://i43.tinypic.com/6p16r7.png )

My Character : http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5938647/

As you can see, the quality of her drawing is not traced. But if you cannot see the similarities between the two, I am sorry but I would have to say you are either blind, or extremely optimistic. Given her past for tracing and copying others, I think it is a safe bet to say that yes, she is copying (or at least trying to imitate ) my art/style/character design/whatever you want to call it. Do I care? No, not in particular, if she wants to continue to be passive aggressive and unoriginal, then so be it. But, I thought I would update this post for everyone here, lest you be tricked into believing she is truly changed - she has not.

She actually can get into bigger trouble for avoiding the deletion of traced work, especially when it is the same one. Even if DA or she deleted it, if there was a report filed, it will be in their database.

http://damn-army.deviantart.com/ can help you in reporting it if you alert them, and contacting http://realitysquared.deviantart.com/ could do a lot to solve this problem quickly.

or rather, resubmitting works deleted by the DA staff or broke TOS and Copyright policy before will get you into a tiff.

Oh dear. This girl is a piece of work. I've watched her shenanigans for a while and it just doesn't make sense. Tracing is tracing, no matter the intent. Who cares if you are mad at someone? You do not trace.

She doesn't understand, nor does she learn. She's been caught and called out so many times, and each time she swears every one is just 'picking on her'. I kept hoping she'd grow up and see the mess she made, but it doesn't look like she ever will.

I don't think she will ever understand. Even her personal 'friend' has told me that she is pretty much messed up in the head and this will never stop.

ohhh noooo not herrrrrrr

she's been spamming my gf capribebe's formspring with 'questions' for a year now... saying anything, from questioning her shaving habits to sending random swears to telling her how she hopes her dog dies (and it did just recently, but she was a bit late on that tasteful little message).

She's also made 'fanart' of my gf's character's dead body being strung up, x-es for the eyeballs and all.

I think the beware should just be something along the lines of DO NOT ENGAGE. She will NEVER let go of things. She makes journals and sends messages to people about how she 'just wants to be left alone' but then spams them with shit. My girlfriend hasn't actually spoken to her directly in more than a year an hasn't even mentioned her name online at all, but spike's still apparently being 'harrassed' by her and other FA people or something. I don't know. She has so many problems and I think she has trouble understanding how to respond to things; the whole reason capri even tried talking to her was to see if she couldn't help her understand how her behavior was bad, and it just... turned out for the worse.

So yeah. Can of worms.

oh nooo....
other accounts (all banned for harassment and tracing) that I know of were http://www.furaffinity.net/user/spike4evah http://www.furaffinity.net/user/mikumiku34/ http://www.furaffinity.net/user/mousegirl34/
(I don't know how to do links, herp)

she will never stop this behavior. I haven't spoken with her in over a year and she STILL spams me on formspring, makes new IM accounts to harass me, and she is constantly making new alt accounts and immediately trying to become buddy-buddy with me and a few others she clings on to for some reason (the ones I know on fa in particular are ali, rynies, and rainbow).

Even the conversation I read shows she has a serious one-track mind.

No. She traces.

http://i.imgur.com/3PBJL.png

Any claims that she "doesn't trace anymore" should be disregarded. This girl cannot be trusted. Regardless of whatever excuses a person makes, tracing is tracing. Nobody deserves to have their art stolen and to have the gall to put up an "Art Theft is a Crime" stamp at the bottom of a journal where this idiot admits to tracing is sickening.

Re: No. She traces.
Agreed. There is not point in listening to her many attempts to say she no longer traces, or pay any attention to her acting as if she is being unfairly harassed and accused. This has gone on for years, and it will never stop.

Her deviantart is activated again. She just commented on one of my pieces.

Thought I'd blocked her. Oh well.

Here are the accounts I know about. I think there's another one I'm missing but I cant remember what it is.
