:iconlilnekokatz: still has yet to remove drawings that she traced or to post the links to the bases she has used. I thank the ones that helped me report this. If an account :iconthief-anouncer: or similar will try to harass you, it is her, trying to intimidate you, so simply block it if it does. She also uses other accounts to intimidate people.

I would feel ashamed people would bring this up so many times, and I would simply quit, or include the base or image I had inspiration from in the first place, and it would be different. But there is a big difference between tracing and getting inspired. Count the hidden comments on her "art".

There is no reason to even try to deal with her kindly. She knows what she does is wrong, but does not do anything to change the situation, even if you nicely try to talk with her about it, she will block you, so just silently report, without harassing or bullying.

If you have checked my last journal, I have posted a series of links with artwork she traced or used bases and did not link to them, not to mention she still has the Print option available on them, when she is not supposed to. On some drawings from the past journal she has deleted or updated the base link. Not all... just some. The people that brought up the fact that those drawings are traced, are marked as spam. There are many of her deviations full of marked as spam messages.

Those are the rules of dA:

Update 17 june 2013
Deactivated her account, but I will check on it from time to time and some accounts I suspect are hers, just to be sure.


Update 26 june 2013
She reactivated her account, but still did not remove the traced drawings or at least credit the bases.

Note: For even more evidence the-hangman-project.deviantart…
Credit to :iconthe-hangman-project:

Update 27 June 2013

:iconlilnekokatz: has deactivated her account (again).

Update 25-26 July 2013
Reactivated the account.

Update 28 July 2013
NOTE! Due some weird happenings:

Please do not harass/bully her. Bullying is a bad thing. Do not insult her, try to get as less contact with her as possible. Simply report her. She will block you even if you try to explain nicely that what she is doing is wrong.


One more thing I noted today is a comment. She uses fourteenthstar.deviantart.com/…  as a "weapon" but, I did not think she read it.

It states:

"Fair use can apply when there is a reason to copy in order to make a new artistic statement. The analysis of whether a given use is a "fair use" is the most complex and nuanced in copyright law.  Among the factors it considers is whether the use is commercial or non-commercial.  Many uses of works on deviantART are entirely non-commercial. We do not permit the sale of FanArt within our Print Store because we want to avoid involvement in a commercial exploitation of a copyrighted character."
:iconlilnekokatz: is selling prints on deviantart of the following copyrighted characters:

www.deviantart.com/print/32490…
www.deviantart.com/print/32370…
www.deviantart.com/print/32028…
etc.

Here is another journal with more about her past thieving on facebook - we are dealing with a pathological liar I hope she reads this and thinks of visiting some special help (I am not joking and I am serious, not insulting) and she can get a treatment. Pseudologia fantastica is a serious mental disease that needs treatment:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudolo…
She stole multiple dA artworks and pretends as hers and that she really worked hard on them.
Art Thief strikes again.:iconleftlacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:
The art thief :iconLilNekoKatz: has struck again.
this time taking a sketch straight off my facebook. seen here:
posted on the 11th of November, and before i could post up my finished painting
i also have the dates from my camera,

showing the photo of my painting was taken on the 13th of novemeber. a full day before she stole my work and made it into this abomination:
posting it 10 minutes before i managed to upload my acyclic p

People who use the base thing as an argument, look at her gallery first please orz

The lack of consistency in skill level of her 'artworks' is a big giveaway that this is indeed an art thief : )

um....using a base isnt the same thing as tracing. and you can't copyright a pose. so by your logic if I took a photo of someone and then used it as reference to draw that person you'd report me for theft?.......good luck with that. meantime the admins will either laugh at you and ignore your report or just plain wipe their ass with the ticket.
I've reported REAL art thieves and been ignored. trust me, they don't care.....
also you're freaking out over MLP shit. MLP ALL LOOK THE SAME!
....people actually take you seriously?  you're all idiots. find something more productive to do besides harass a middle school girl for your imagined cases of "theft" of shitty mlp art.

No. But it should make you question why you thought she was a middle schooler.
it's nice and all that you are trying to white knight, but the majority of her serious theft got taken down. whats up there is some of the remainders, there are new journals around that have found where she has not traced, but actually uploaded full artworks from other people.
if you want to think it's retarded then that's your business, but saying she is innocent if far worse.

my point is that you're saying she stole or traced MLP shit...even if she did..WHO FUCKING CARES? My point that MLP is shit and not art is still irrefutably valid. I assumed she was a middle schooler because you're all saying she "stole" MLP "art".
 granted if she's 22 and doing that then she is clearly retarded herself but the rest of you who are freaking out and going out of your way to report it are even MORE retarded for giving a shit in the first place!
MLP is NOT ART. ANY BRAIN DEAD KINDERGARTEN WASHOUT CAN DRAW THAT SHIT.

lilnekokatz.deviantart.com/gal… <--- Recently she's stolen non-mlp art varying in many styles orz
Like this, for instance - Knight of The Night
her 'art' changes skill level with every piece :/ After uploading the previous stolen thing, she uploads this - Meeting Of The Arts, which is for a want of a better word, pretty terrible in comparison to a hyper realistic painting.

 dude she took other people's art and sold prints of it. Not even tracings of the art she literally just posted art other people drew and made money off of it. There is no excuse. She was selling prints of my friends drawing and using it as her icon up until yesterday when she was contacted and threatened to be sued.

She's stolen original art from more than a few people on deviantart including myself and then tried to get the original art removed to cover her tracks. it's annoying.

#1 is a pony, they all look the same to me anyways
#6 the 'traced' image is a base! she used the base and that's why the pose with the cross is the same...
#11 IS A BASE!
#12 IS A BASE!
#21 even though her image is gone now, the one she 'stole'... IS A BASE!
#25 almost certain I've seen this as a base
#29 BAAAAAAAAAASE!!!

I'd suggest removing this and the broken links from the list coz they're completely irrelevant

That doesn't excuse her from the other traced and recolored work. I've gotten in contact with only a few of the original artists and they having already been notified by others, they then expressed that they did not give her permission to trace or recolor their work and would like it to be taken down.
As for the bases she needs to give credit where credit is due, even if she does not know the specific artist at least put "hey I used a base credit for it goes to the original artist whoever they may be" or something like that.
Not to mention when approached about these things in a non-hostile way she responds violently, is very childish and rude, and once she's comment blocked you she takes down her comments and hides the others.
Don't make excuses for this individual, if you cannot see the wrong she's done then I pity you for how blind you are.

Wow... Aren't you rude!
I wasn't making excuses, thank you. I was pointing out the irrelevance of trying to list art made with a base as though they traced the original peice instead of using the base... Regardless of if they didn't credit.
It's like a false accusations even if what their doing is still wrong. Coz not crediting a base is nowhere near as base as everything else.

How is she a 'thief' when over half of these pictures you've linked have bases. Just type in bases in your search bar or female bases, manga bases, couple bases ect. and you can see that their bases. I use bases, all the time, does that make me a 'thief' no it doesn't, it makes me an artist. Like she is.

I've seen them all as bases. She could of scrolled through looking for ideas and copied a hair style. I do the same thing, especially when the base itself has hair or clothes. I even trace over pictures I find from shows and animes to make my Oc. Does that make me an art thief too? No it doesn't. It makes me, and her, artist.
