Saw this floating about Tumblr. As far as hilarious instances of theft goes, this is the motherload. A particularly colorful individual decides to steal art on video, not only claiming other people's OC's as their own, but also putting "my crappy art" in the video description. Funny how that "crappy" art was apparently attractive enough for them to steal.
(Protip: if you're going to commit art theft, next time make sure you at least steal from artists who aren't widely recognized on the web and popular art web sites).……

And the worst part of it is that she called it her CRAPPY art. Really? Way to completely devalue the work that other people put in.

Thinking about it, it was probably just her trying to sound genuine. It's common for artists to call their art crappy (you are your own worst critic), so she was probably trying to fit in to make it seem natural! I don't see a whole lot of artists going "Look at this AMAZING piece by me!"

Most of the stuff I post here is usually just my rough concept work that I happened to color. The rest is done on a completely different scale. My quick sketch style is way different from my professional one. Yet she still has waaaaay too many forms of linework to have made them all herself. I've seen many of them. She's a joke.

A widely unknown fact: I was the original creator of the Mona Lisa as well as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. truestory.jpg (also created that)

Yeah...the level of artistic ability and styles are very different between some of the pieces... :/

I am so confused at what I am watching. That's the emotion I am getting from this: Confusion. Purely confusion. I can't understand why she is doing this. Why video too? It has got to be one of the dumbest ways to art thieving.

Her "Russian" is the only other thing that is making me want to punch something.

It's obvious she's lying. The way she describes the drawings, like she's not sure of what she's saying, a very insecure voice and movements, often calling her "own art" crap various times in a lower tone and often being all "oh wait I'm lookin' for my best drawings" trying to reassure us that is "her art". She also just flicks the drawing to the camera and just quickly passes on to something else but then "remembers" to talk about the "materials" and "techniques" used. I mean, the times I've seen people talk about their OC's/art they know what they're saying about them and have a certain fluidity.

This is art theft on a whole new level of pathetic.

Oh god why do people like this exist. I'm kind of laughing just because she's so awkward and I can't believe someone would be stupid enough to think that they would just get away with this.

I think this is the first time I've ever seen anyone do this while on video, though.

It's really hysterical how most people think they can get away with this. BWAHAHAH! I dont think she'll be making anymore ART VIDEOS too soon. Every single reply to her comments were all about her theiving
