Unfortunately, while this is the first that I know of anyone impersonating me online, it is not the first time another person has taken credit for my artwork. I actually had a guy selling prints of my work on eBay last year.dark lite wrote:Welcome to gimper hope you dont run into this again
Thanks johnny. That is good to know.humblejohnny20 wrote:also: i dont think we discriminate against adobe/photoshop
I can totally understand your frustration here with this guy. Just so you guys can feel safe that I'm not that other guy, here is what was an early layered project for one of the images that clown claimed he made. I will keep it on my server for a few days to give you guys time to check it out if you want to. http://www.acliffhanger.com/gears/hurt_project.psdArzoroc wrote:I seriously hope it's true...
We had some really bad time with TaintedCrotale, and you surely do understand that we are pretty much sick of his multi-accounts, lies, false excuses etc etc. It would be cool if you could you post a speedpainting video or a PSD of one of your non-commercial artworks for us to check whether you're not another one of TaintedCrotale's different accounts, as this is -sadly- possible aswell.
We could make an arrangement if you're having a big problem with a bad light cast on your nickname.
You prove that you're seriously the real one and he's another person (I guess an admin could also check via IP), and we delete all the posts containing the name "Crotale" in it in return. That's all I can offer you if you're being cooperative.
Thanks. Yes, it would make me very happy if you would kindly delete all of those postings.David Wood wrote:Thank you for shedding further light on the matter, Cliff. I am very sorry this had to happen and I'm glad it is cleared up. If you wish we can delete all posts made by this impostor.
I took an option I was given on the chance that it is sufficient. I will wait to hear back from the admins.mikethedj4 wrote:Well I've dealt with a lot of people stealing for from myself in the past, and I still come across it occasionally (Mainly on deviantART) My reputation is important to myself, and I'm sure everyone else's reputation is important to themselves as well.
To be quite honest I've dealt with so many people that steal artwork in the past, and with this TaintedCrotale (excuse my language) $%$^, I wish I could believe you. Anyone can post a project file, and say it's theirs if they search the web good enough, or let alone if their decent at editing images. However I'd haft to go with what Arzoroc said a speed paint/time-lapse would help some of us believe you more.
If it is really your artwork, I'm truly sorry this happened, and hopefully others will realize how much this dude is a joke, a fake, and an impostor.
Also I don't discriminate against users who use PS, Inkscape, or whatever program as we're all artists, with different/multiple styles and we post our work not to get patted on the back (unless you're an idiot lol), but to become a better artist than we currently are.
You read my post before I edited it. It was a knee-jerk reaction from a very still asleep me. I am not going to sue anyone here, I just want this mess cleared up as much as you all do. The only reason I came here was because of a message I received from Stacey "Flak" Connelly of Epic Games asking me if I knew what was going on here. I surely did not come here to make threats; I only wanted to clear my name before this grew into a larger problem.Arzoroc wrote:First of all: Shhhh....
A lawyer... seriously...
Now do you want only your images removed from this site? That shouldn't be a problem at all. We know they're stolen so we could easily delete them.
There's a very simple solution for the thing with your name:
David / Cyril just change the name of TC to something different and voilá, your name's clean. We don't even have to delete the messages he posted.

That sounds fair.See, that was what I hoped for
So, what do you think of my offer? I'm "just" a moderator not an admin but deleting every link and image affecting you and changing the name of the impostor should be okay shouldn't it?
