Interests
I only write journals every four months (in April, August and December), but I felt like I had to say something about this here and now.

Several days ago, someone who wishes to remain anonymous, informed me of this situation: someone involved with this MKW Animation Studio had stolen several of my Disney Villains 3D fanart, along with several other deviant's 2D and 3D art, and included it in their portfolio. Other people affected contacted the person responsible for this, and made her remove some of the stolen art from her social media accounts, and some from her website too. At this point, she claimed to be an innocent victim, falsely accused, who has a legitimate 2D&3D studio, and that all of this was due to some honest mistake made by her webdesigner. But when I see my material (with my signature cropped out of the pictures) all over her website and social media, I cannot believe any honest mistake has been made. Furthermore, here you can see how some of the people who discovered all this and confronted her, took the trouble of contacting some of the professionals and studios cited in her resume, long story short: nobody knows this person or her 'studio'. So I wonder what happens when someone tries to hire her to do some of the 2D&3D work she showcases in her completely fictional portfolio, which is made out of promotional artwork by Nintendo, Square-Enix, My Little Pony and others that she had nothing to do with, plus fanart stolen from some of us.

Here's a screencapture I made of the 3D Anime Character Design section of her portfolio, where seven of my deviations are displayed without my permission. I contacted this person via dA, because even here at dA itself she had some of the stolen art displayed in her gallery, and so far I've had no answer.
Art-theft by aemiliuslives
Coincidentally, this whole thing happened around a time when several people were asking me to send them my actual 3D models, and other people are asking for me to please make them available somehow. What happened with all this only made me decide I'll never do that. For starters I'm the first one to realize that my models are nowhere near good enough to sell, but now that some people is capitalizing on my renders, I don't even want to imagine what such people might do if they had access to my actual sculptures. Probably I should stop offering high resolution versions of my renders too? I'll see what I'll do about that.

Sorry about this rant, but I just had to say something. Since it seems there's little else I can do. January's been rough on me, this happened, my modem broke and left me without internet connection at home, my dog died... and don't get me started on what's going on in my country. Hopefully the rest of 2015 will be more kind to me.

I'm so glad I found you! Your art/3D sculptures interest me very much. I'm considering studying 3D design in university next year here in france.  You do 3D sculpting so well! I definitely had to watch you.

P.S.: Why are you so mean to yourself in your bio? You're actually very talented!
