Bug Art thievery - Crobbywobby
Earlier today a user named Crobbywobby created a thread showcasing "his" artwork. He claimed that he had drawn the artwork and that he was going to try to get the drawings added to the game. 

It turns out that the artwork was not his at all, and he had in fact stolen it from multiple artists across the internet.

Once confronted, he apologized in chat. He was told by multiple CMs to create a thread apologizing to the community but refused. And this is why this thread was created.

Below are screenshots of his "art" thread (which was taken down), along with links to the actual artwork which was stolen and some chat screenshots. I've cropped and resized some of the screenshots so they don't take up too much space.

RE: Art thievery - Crobbywobby
Pff, this is outrageous.
Not only is this copy infringement towars the artists that made the actual art, but than the lame excuses and not even overthinking the consequenses this might have for the game..

*Yay, I get credit for something, finally recognition*
To than make a 180° turn because you get caught. Honesty gets you further in life.

I could give you an answer or at least my opinion about that
But I think that a) people might ask me to delete that comment or b) crobby would have to admit, again, that he was wrong about something.

So I'll keep it for myself

RE: Art thievery - Crobbywobby
It's pretty sad that someone would, not only do this, but then try to escape the consequences for their actions.

I hope this serves as a reminder and a warning to anyone considering doing something like this.

If you steal art you will be caught and you will have to deal with it. Every time. No exceptions.

RE: Art thievery - Crobbywobby
You should all know that this isn't the first time art has been stolen in this community.
Next time, there will be no warnings.

We are all tired of it.

Think before you act guys. This isn't a good look and we don't need it here in this friendly community.

RE: Art thievery - Crobbywobby
Should have easily been identified. All those different art styles picked up in a short amount of time, all sent in at once not one at a time as released. I've caught tons of fake art in this forum and this should have been one of them. Need to keep an eye out.
Your life just got better. 

You're welcome.

Cause i can , Bro. This was all a pretense for me to leave the game.
Now i have a reason to be ashamed and leave the game , it would suck to leave it without a reason. Otherwise i have school as a reason , nvm.

You are a liar and a bad one..
You thought you would not get caught because the artists were 'inactive'.
It saddens me that you still try to act tough yet innocent after all the evidence

RE: Art thievery - Crobbywobby
This thread was made to expose a thief and give credit to the ACTUAL artists, not to harass Crobby.

Keep it clean, people.

Also, it was identified right away. As in, right after he posted the thread.

RE: Art thievery - Crobbywobby
crobby please maybe you dont get it and think we are dumb or whatever, but many peole here are a little older and simply know whats going on.. Noone buys your story of wanting to leave "because of school" and wanting to make an "epic" departure.. With each "cool" reply you give, you just show that you didnt wanted to leave (or why have you returned to comment), it just shows that you are too stubborn(i cant use any other word here) to recognize that you have done wrong (and an especially silly one aswell). I hope you return here in a few years and shame yourself to death about your posts. But I think the main problem with you is that you simply dont recognize why its bad to steal other peoples work and pretend its yours.. :/

Very nicely said, Shadow. 100% correct right on the money spot on. Could have done without quoting the swearing though.
