After another blatant copy of my work (which has been sold in stores, conventions, etc under my name) - I'm leaving DeviantArt for the time being. All my deviations have been stored or deleted.
I simply cannot support such an incestuous and juvenile community while trying to maintain a strong brand and respectable image. This isn't a problem in regards to 'my art being on the internet'; I have been very active with MANY other social networks and DeviantArt never fails me with copycats who believe they have the rights to do so.
You can thank those copycats (like these: [link] )for my decision. No one can succeed from copying someone else's work while trying to reap the benefits of someone else's creativity.
I'll be keeping my account open because I do love several artists on here and I wish you artists the best.
