WHAT: Traced YCH pose from Trogan of my commission without credit or permissions.
PROOF: NSFW All links
The artist has now removed most traces of the offending art from her gallery knowing she's been caught. These are the downloaded pieces I was able to get before she deleted them. Her signature is on every piece.

A side by side comparison of the images. Trogan is left, her image is right.
EXPLAIN: I was notified about a stolen piece of my art. I investigated the art and contacted the artist to let them know that the piece they did was a trace of my commission. They instantly were defensive and thought it was no big deal. I advised them that tracing and/or using another artists piece as a 'pose reference' is still Copyright infringement. The artist became hostile and attacked my character in FA Notes, calling it 'sad' that I spent so much on this commission. So far the artist refuses to give credit to the pose of Trogans (and my commission) for her piece she used for reference, which is illegal and against FA AUP.

I wanted this to be known the artist may use stolen art and references for their pieces, and seems to lack the moral compos to know what is right and what is wrong so other commissioners to not get cheated art.
