First off I want to let you all know that even if dealt kindly, told kindly to credit bases or to mention the references of her drawings, :iconlilnekokatz: will not do it. She will block you and hide your comment and we will not resolve anything. So at this point it is easier just to report and not even deal with her.

Silent reporting should help us. Here is the list sorted newer to old of her (found) traced drawings:

If you find traced new artworks that are traced and we did not find, please comment here with he deviation.

To know more about :iconlilnekokatz:'s past thieving check out this journal:
Art thief is back: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 trac

PS: If dealt with, she might ''attack'' you with secondary deviantart accounts.

Thank you!



Here is a petition so that Deviantart will hear us regarding tracing:

The last one, she/he VERY heavily referenced it. I would just do different eyes, maybe chibi form, a peace sign on the left arm, and extra details. He/she just traced it and added their OCs.

God, I had a kid do that to me a couple years ago with one of my pieces of Inuyasha fanart, A Gift for Mother, of little kid Inu with his mother. He swiped the image, expanded the canvas to the right, slapped "Happy Mother's Day!" on it, and was trying to sell it as a print!

The worst that's happened to me, though, was back when I first joined dA in 2004 and woke up the next day to my gallery being cleaned out by $taff (back when they actually did their JOBS and did so promptly) and a bunch of comments and notes calling me a thief. Turns out some kid had been on here for 4-5 MONTHS before I joined, impersonating me. They posted over 250 pieces of my work, talked to people as me, critiqued artwork as me, and even copied my journal entries over from LiveJournal. I had to draw something with "StudioKB IS A THIEF" hand written on it before people believed I was actually me.

The other person kept it up until the end, too. After I posted that pic they cleaned out their gallery and left a journal up saying "Too much theft, off I go. Check the website." with a link to my professional website, so I went into my site and posted a notice on the front page that the person was a thief and impersonator. Sunofabitch got away with it all Scot Free. :|

Hey, I found where she got her Lethal Beauty image (lilnekokatz.deviantart.com/art….

it is found here: anime.desktopnexus.com/wallpap… I can't tell if she just used the pose or actually traced, but it's the same outfit, expression and pose.

I'll see if I can locate any more.

her new work "my own space" for exsample has been on tumblr for the past few years. yet people are going mad for it and someone said on her page that they suggested it for a DD.

Well, since I'm blocked for having an opinion, KrisCynical
I see that it is copied. I see that it is very similar. I also see that she changed it a little to make it sort of her own. I definitely think she should have asked permission and linked to the reference, but I'm not going to get butthurt about something that doesn't involve me, like you are. And if someone was accusing me of tracing, I would hide the comments, too. Not because I'm hiding something, but because I wouldn't want to deal with it.

I just checked and yep, she blocked me and hid everything just like I knew she would. That's why it's bouncing back any replies you're trying to give me. :shrug:

She really just needs to pick up a damn pencil and draw something for herself for a change. It won't garner instant praise but it won't hurt her, either.

:iconkriscynical:
KrisCynical Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Uh... I don't know if you're meaning *I* blocked you or not, but either way I didn't block you, hun. And I certainly don't block people for having a different opinion than I do. I don't know where you were trying to respond to me, but I assume that more than likely she blocked me (since she blocks everyone who says she swipes her stuff from other people) and that means you can't talk to me on her page. Either that or you have blocked me.

I haven't blocked either of you, actually. I only blocked one account this morning, and that was the alt account kittieecstasy that decided to spam my front page and deviations with ridiculous adolescent stupidity out of having a tantrum. If anybody is butthurt here, it's her. If she thinks her tactics are being mean or spiteful she really should reconsider her approach because as she currently handles it she's nothing but a parody of herself: a pissed of teenager that thinks she's much more of a badass than she actually is.

Artistic dishonesty is something I care about as a matter of principle, so I'm vocal when I see it happening in obvious unabashed spades like this. She's hiding comments to this extreme because she wants to cover up the evidence. Some of these images line up exactly when overlaid, and that doesn't happen by coincidence. Does she have even one single thing in her gallery that is actually 100% from her own head?

My stating the obvious isn't being "butthurt", hun, it's just stating the obvious. :lol:

I love it when I torque snot nosed children badly enough that they make themselves look like blithering idiots in public. :roll:

I never have and never will understand what kind of satisfaction you can possibly get out of being praised for something you stole, traced, or copied. You didn't actually do anything. Are you really that lazy and desperate for praise?

This person is also probably one of the most blatant deviants I've encountered in the 10 years I've been here... not only does she flag everything as spam, but when she's asked why everything is flagged, she says "I dislike links in comments". Come on, seriously?

The way that AuraGrave is purposely NOT seeing things is just pathetic. Saying that the claims are "bullshit" comments.deviantart.com/1/4049… on images as blatant as that one? As I said to her, there's a difference between giving someone the benefit of the doubt and putting blinders on to what's right in front of your face. When you go to that much of a length to NOT see something that blatantly obvious, it just makes you look stupid.
