10 (who?)
A while ago, :iconpbird12: a.k.a Paula wrote an article
Fake art - why care and what to look forI posted this last week for anyone looking for help to spot fake art.  This is not law, if you don't care, feel free to move on.  But if you do care that there are fakers out there, then maybe this could be of some use to you too.  We have a serial faker on the loose on dA today so it sparked this little lot once more.  
So, the questions/scenarios asked are always the same and the responses/justifications are always the same, but give them a minute to sink in before replying and insulting.
(Q1) Why do you care if someone is cheating what does it have to do with you?
(A1) Well, this is a public ART site and if people are submitting art that is not actually what they claim it to be, then they are dishonest. This will annoy some people and not others. If your passionate about your work then the chances are you'll find it insulting to the artistic community as a whole. Additionally, a lot of admins of groups HAVE to deal with fakes as a daily occure

which states clear cut facts so as to why the whole issue about someone faking their art creates rage waves through the art community!
The last week has been a riot which ended up in me getting blocked by two deviants here who clearly have something to hide!
I obviously care much less about the fact that there are many artists here on dA who get more famous than others considering the skill work. Some people get lucky and some don't. It's not easy getting known around this site.
But the fact that people would want to fake art to get accolades makes me angrier than ever.

Here are two examples on what happens when you try to confront artists whom you are suspicious about!
Example 1- The "awesome":iconnatmorley:
Nonsense-1 by zakkiya29
Now now Bratnorley) , you don't need to get all worked up for a single comment there do you?
You obviously think we are all stupid people here who don't really see what you are doing? The scribbles you do to hide what lies underneath and the perfect proportions that never go are a millimeter apart from the reference, all seem a bit fishy don't you think? You only reply to the people who seem to confront you. Does that make us idiots in not understanding that you obviously know you are on the wrong and you're just retaliating because you are scared to be found out. Well guess what you may have the internet to hide behind with your not-at-a;;-legit drawings but in the real world you are obviously going to get a taste of what actually lies there!

Example 2-The very "professional" :icongabbi3ram0s:
Nonsense by zakkiya29
Madam Ramos! You blooming career at 20 which you have so professionally achieved by learning how to use a few filters in PS or some other editing program seems like such an achievement.Let me tell you a little secret! Even your editing skills wont get you anywhere! Guess what they are pre-made! And as for the fact that I should concentrate on what I do. I do my drawing with a 100% dedication and I spend my time learning how to get better after each drawing. I might not be very good but I know that I am legit and I can produce proof that I am! So don't you dare threaten me by telling I need to take free lessons from you to improve my skills because I obviously am not looking for a lesson in an editing software! And I am not stupid enough to not understand your sarcastic P.S.!
