Apparently, at least, according to DeviantArt, it's okay to copy a plethora of images and allow others to assume that they're your own original pieces of art.

DA states in their ToS that this is acceptable for fan art. Whether or not DA supports mild cases of art theft; it's still ethically disgusting. What's even worse is the culprit will block anyone from commenting if they call him out, and hides their comments as spam.

I reported him some time ago, and DA told me (four months later) that it's acceptable. I'm sure if I were to re-draw another Deviant's images, though, DA would be on my ass like a fat kid on a cupcake.

Such injustice.

Hello, sir. I recognized your name on dA after watching some fellow VGBoxartists on this site. I was a fan of your work back when you were active on the site (of course, you have absolutely no idea who I am) but anyway, as Martiniii332 on VGBoxart, I salute ya.

Hey, thanks. That makes me feel real good on the inside. I wish I was still more active. I just haven't been feeling that vibe lately. Other stuff taking up my time I guess. It sure was nice of you to message me though. Thanks!

She's well. Got a job at a Sushi place, so we've got a little more income these days. It's nice.
