Ok I noticed this right away during a search, these two pictures popped up in two different galleries, one sporting a backround and one not. I sniffed around their galleries, one looks legit (They have one other picture though) but the other one looks suspecious, they even have a dead pan Terra screenshot to which they did not give credit in the reference to.

But the problem is, the backround lacking picture came AFTER the one with a backround so yeah, im scratching my head at this.

Anywhos here's the pictures:






What do you guys think? oO

UPDATE: Ok the one said she borrowed the picture of Raven and edited it abit, im not sure if she gave permission though. xx

Since she admitted that she "borrowed" a Raven picture from somewhere else and edited it, she should reference it in her picture description, or else she will not give that other source the due credit.

She should give credit as you said yes. I mean it wouldnt hurt.
Also the backround fire one, that person should also give credit for the TT oc picture, it clearly is based off a Terra screenshot from AfterShock.
Weather that one is traced or not I cannot tell, but if you want I can toss that one up too. I'll do it here though since one of the artists involved in this is also an original owner of the Raven pic. (I think.)

Why hasent anyone stepped forward to correct her or tell her to at least give credit to the original artist yet? I mean you'd have to be blind to not tell the difference between the two. Only thing that stands out between them is the belt is fixed in the second picture. oO

The lower image is the "original" and the upper image was derived from it. Notice that any portion of it that isn't white on black MS Paint pencilling has noticeably worse JPEG compression in the upper than the lower -- caused by opening a JPEG and re-saving.

Weird though, that one popped up a year after the fire backround one though. Oo

Then again....I did notice the backround lacking one on photobucket, i'll have to check when that was put up to see if it's younger. If so then the fire backround one needs to at least give reference...cause all she has is a pic in her profile and nothing else. And when it comes to talking in the fire backround one, she says she worked on it rather hard and long and gave no references.

The "fire" background was created with MS Paint's Spray tool, nothing more.

Yeah that was easy to tell right away.

But anywhos, here's the raven pic I found on photobucket, im not sure how old it is though sorry. xx

http://media.photobucket.com/image/teen%20titans%20black%20raven/Sara_Shadow/Teen%20Titans/Ravenpicpainted.jpg?o=1

And here's the TT oc drawing by the one who did the fire backround, luckily I had no trouble finding the Screenshot of Terra she based it off of.
(But she also gave no credit to this one either)



And here's the screenshot:



That eye in the first...kinda makes me wonder since the colors and shades dont match up. o3o
(I can see the purple outline, and even the lines in the air look abit odd.)
