Help us put a stop to "artnappers" and thieves!

Have you ever had precious artwork taken from you? Is deviantArt not doing enough to help you alone? Count on us to lend a hand; there's nothing worse than having something stolen from you, especially artwork, a.k.a. the very thing you put your heart and soul into while making it!

We can't stop all the artnappers in the world, but we can slow them down in their tracks: one thief at a time.

Much love, :iconsakuranights:

This Widget Welcomes You

ART THIEVES MUST LEAVE THIS VICINITY. NOW.

:heart:...You're not a thief? Well, then...welcome! :heart:

As many if not all of us know, there's the constant issue of art thievery around dA and basically everywhere else. How to solve this issue? The sad truth is, we can't. :iconimnothappyplz: However, we can slow down this cruel charade by hunting down as many thieves as we can! :iconimhappyplz: Justice is best served hot, with a side dish of pain and a beverage of whoop a$$! XD I digress, let's get the rules into our teeny, tiny little brains, shall we?

:iconrule1plz::iconrule2plz::iconrule3plz::iconrule4plz:

1: DON'T FLAME, SPAM, TROLL, B*TCH, AND/OR STEAL ART!!!

:bulletred:If you're caught doing any of these things, you will receive a swift boot to the head by yours truly! Lol okay, but seriously, please don't. Just... don't.

2: DON'T PUT YOUR ART IN THE WRONG FOLDERS!!!

:bulletorange:Yes. You actually submit art to this group as well. Not somebody else's art, your own. I blogged mah booty off in Youtopia about this. Please, help us out. Make our lives easy and just put them where they belong! ;A; Also, make sure to place a filter up if the art is too, well, you know, MATURE. XD Mature art is ok but only if it's tasteful, goes in the right folder and has a filter. :)

3: DON'T HARASS OR PICK FIGHTS WITH OTHERS!!!

:bulletyellow:I don't think I can reiterate this more; people, just get along. We're an alliance for a single worldwide cause! If we fall apart, who will we be representing?

4: NO FALSE ADVERTISING!!!

:bulletgreen:By this, I mean don't fake who you are. If you want to be cool, don't act it. The right people will like you. If you're a thief, get out. We will find you. We WILL find you.

5: DO YOUR PART!!!

:bulletblue:If you find a thief, tell us! We want to help as many people as we can. It's a horrible feeling, to be robbed. At least drop us a note.

6: NO FALSE ACCUSATIONS!!!

:bulletpurple:Don't report somebody just because you don't like them. Have sufficient evidence to prove that they are, in fact, stealing.

7: KNOW WHO YOU'RE INVITING!!!

:bulletpink:Sometimes it isn't easy to tell who's who between an honest to goodness user and a lowly art thief user. Before inviting ANYBODY to the group, be sure to double check the user's gallery. This means click "browse" and "scraps" to make sure you're reviewing every single piece they've posted. Suspicious? Look it up! You can never be to cautious.

:star:BUT WAIT! There's more! Read up on some more Rules/Regulations here: no-more-artnappers.deviantart.… and here: no-more-artnappers.deviantart.…:

:star::star:Need to ask a question? Have an idea to help improve our group? If we're on and you're on, come to the group chatroom! chat.deviantart.com/chat/NoMor… :star::star:

:iconrainbowllamaplz:Another thing... I give llama badges to anyone who either contributes, watches, or joins the group! Loves ya!:iconrainbowllamaplz:

We recently received a few messages from users on dA, so I'd like to take a moment to clarify this issue.


:star:Base art is NOT considered stealing.

As long as proper credit is given to the original base maker (i.e. user on deviantArt, outside web source, etc.), then it cannot be considered stealing. Users will often credit the original source in the Artist Description of their deviations. Please be on the lookout!

:star:If you are unsure, send a note to the group, and either I or the admins will take a look, and/or check your source on TinEye.com www.tineye.com/



Thanks for your cooperation!

Hi there,

This: scribbler-onthe-roof.deviantar… Deviant Artist's gallery contains A LOT of stolen work. In fact, I am almost positive that none of the work in this person's gallery is of their own creation. I personally have had work stolen from this artist but have managed to get it taken down. Others haven't been so lucky and have even had their watermarks/signatures hidden by this person's username. 

Here are some examples of stolen work:

Original: hippie-goat.deviantart.com/art…
Stolen: scribbler-onthe-roof.deviantar…

Original: kezumiyo.deviantart.com/art/ju…

Original: khrssc.deviantart.com/art/Prof…
Stolen: scribbler-onthe-roof.deviantar…

Original: poketix.deviantart.com/art/che…
Stolen: scribbler-onthe-roof.deviantar…

While the gallery does contain far more stolen art than this, the original artists have been hard to track. 

Please if anyone knows any of the original artists who's art has been stolen by this DA user, let them know and help report and get their work taken down from this persons DA page.

Thank you

potential art thief? I'm honestly not sure so I thought I'd go to a group and ask before I "report anyone". Their gallery is inconsistent in both style and skill level. They were all posted within minutes of each other; and then they posted a picture of Ikuto from Shugo Chara and claimed it was their own original character.

he just posted this one today Just one Angel look out for My wolf. he also commented on it that "it took awhile" I couldn't find the original but I did find a picture of it on pinterest: www.pinterest.com/pin/34325880…

the one on pinterest you can clearly see the artist's signature, and when you google her dA the art style/skill level appears to be rather consistent with the stolen image's style/skill level to me. I also did a screencap of the stolen picture, the conversation and the time it was uploaded: i60.tinypic.com/2w2h43t.png

He doesn't seem malicious, but I feel safe with the conclusion he is an art thief (if only a minor one)

Well, I found a thief right now. I let her know about it just now because I'm not sure how aware of it she is, but I'd thought that I'd let the group know about her just in case.

Stolen: xoxoblackwolfxoxo.deviantart.c…

Original: pupukachoo.deviantart.com/art/…

xoxoBlackwolfxoxo Has many other stolen pics but I'm not sure where they're originally from.

sunshineshimmer200.deviantart.… has a few Pikachu images up that aren't hers. She also has poorly recolored versions of Twilight Sparkle, and she's selling quite a few of them as prints. If she doesn't like you, she just hides your comments, flags them as spam, or blocks you. Here's her "gallery": sunshineshimmer200.deviantart.…

Found one

Kingcroe9 has a lot of stolen things and I am having a hard time trying to locate any of the originals. Maybe they are not on here, but help would be nice.

I feel like I have seen this stolen image before www.deviantart.com/art/Red-dra…

xxfoxy-zeldaxx.deviantart.com/ - Using several adoptable bases and not providing credit to any of them. Has been asked by several people to credit, they ignore them and hide comments.
I asked nicely for them to credit the bases: sta.sh/0231dcqjm0lq and the comment was hidden and the reply I got was this sta.sh/02eeyvphxurt and they still haven't put proper credit to the base makers on any of their deviations where they've used a base
