Salut tout le monde !

I want to warn everyone of you about a DA user who's spamming lot of artists to get free drawings, even when they don't do requests.

Know your enemy...


Three days ago, I received a comment from this guy, ordering me to draw something for him and for free. I so started to reply, explaining I don't do requests and that commissions are closed, then the fun began.

Knowing that I only do gifts for friends, he called me "buddy" and gifted me something, but what a gift! It was a bad recoloring of a lineart pic he found somewhere ( if you're curious: fav.me/d7tykpr ) and found some stolen drawings in his gallery (badly recolored too). I sent him a comment, explaining he should stop doing that and start doing gift by himself, but he started getting mad, saying that he will report me and lots of stupid crap...

Then, friends tried to help me and got comments about free commissions from him. Finally, I decided to block him after receiving more and more worthless comments of him complaining about the same stuff. But that was not over yet. Next hour, I received a comment from another guy saying "you can do the request I have the points", totally a proof he has another account and tried to redo the same mess on my profile. He got blocked instantly. I did notice an hour later that someone tried to reset my password on DA, I wonder who was this guy...

A little help to report him?


Here is the guy I'm talking about: andrethedragon.deviantart.com/ - and the second account is this one: kingzurax.deviantart.com/

This guy already got banned earlier, on the account vixenthedragon for obvious reason: art thief. Take a look at the galleries and you will find some stolen and recolored art. The second account is also using AwsmYoshi's character as deviantID...

And about comment spaming, here are some example I found on other artists profiles (and of course on mine):

Me and some friends he annoyed already reported some of his drawings. I think it would be good to report him for his attitude too, but I guess the art thief stuff is already enough to ban him.
Thank you guy for reading, help reporting if you want and be careful, if you find him asking you free drawing, ignore or block him, it'll be the best solution! :shakefist:

You seem to have a case worked up against him with block evading. Just report him for that and proof that he's gone around your block and he'll be suspended(or banned, depending on how he's running around and treating other members).

And I remember one time, a couple of kids were taking my Krystal pictures immaturely, and saying hateful things about them. Then, I blocked them, and they raged on their journal, and then we were arguing. But then we made up. Lol.

How I feel after reading the entire hoopla (journal + evidence): Facepalm 

You actually took this very well, considering the annoyance of a prepubescent teen who shouldn't even be left alone in the internet (to which I'm surprised he is still active as of yet). Shrug 

Anyway, hopefully the bitterness of the situation have dissipated. Hug  Good luck defeating the menace. CURSE YOU!

You're totally right, I really wonder what his parents are doing, DA is not the right place for him, not yet.

Did you report that hacking attempt to the help desk?

It's not really hacking, he just hit the "Reset password" button and I have no way to prove that he did the action.

I can already tell he annoys people. What is wrong with "kids" nowadays. :/ People like him shouldn't be on DeviantArt in the first place.

Wow... I read all of them comments and...... Wow...

Kid seriously needs a reality check. This is deviantART, where most artwork has to be paid, but instead, he thinks this is like some charity. He needs a good whooping on his head

Well i'm very appalled by that behaviour, its annoying that he consistently says its his without crediting the artists. 

i was a softie and i even said id do commissions for free when he offered money for these:
exxylo.deviantart.com/art/Requ…
exxylo.deviantart.com/art/Requ…

He only commented "good" on the sword because i forcefully asked him to and for the whole commission he didn't even say anything, come on man i took time out for you to do this just for your reaction and support!

You know how he responded? With more requests and then to top it off:
andrethedragon.deviantart.com/…: I'm not credited at all. Neither did i give permission.

That's a problem with people asking for requests, they rarely thank you for your work and that's the reason why I take only commissions now.

And like my friend said before, if you didn't give him permission to submit your drawing, better report him. :)

I saw the comment. It was just plain idiotic for him to post the pic you did for him without giving you credit.
