He always posted journals thanking people when they pointed out he forgot to credit a reference he used. Even the greats traced I learned that in art history this year its like wow that's cool wait didn't I see that 3 chapters back? The human body has only so many poses and so many ways to twist and turn you could say we all are tracing in way. But he will be misses
Except he was an art-thief. Stealing/tracing even one piece can label you as one if you claim it. <3 Of course, I'm not here to troll, but to state my opinion. The evidence I've seen against him is giant. So if he's innocent, where's the proof? o : Because I'd like to see it to make a more informed opinion.
Take those words back RIGHT NOW!!! Drachea was a skilled artist, he didn't copy, he was INSPIRED and had REFERENCE, or maybe that was just his STYLE! If you think he was copying, why don't you prove it. I bet you don't have a single piece of real proof against him.
To me, he IS GOD, retard. An ART GOD. And nothing can change that (well, except for when his style and way of CGing would change and deteriorate so drastically that I would not find it aesthetically pleasing anymore that's the only way ) So yeah, his anime art filled my philosophy of how art should be EXACTLY, which -consequently- made him the first FANartist on my fave list. So forgive me if kicking him out by a scapegoat hunt pisses me off. Cuz not only I don't have access to his works and original commentary that went with them, but also access to some of tutorial, tips he gave and basically possibility to ask him sth (and no, I don't plan to contact him OUTSIDE of DA as I am not a stalker and i don't pay him for tips. But I had them for free whenever I needed thanks to notes, about what, all the trolls and stalkers seem to forgot and never mention. That would be a great contrasting argument to the whole 'He stole ppl money and is a scum' hypothesis)
It's weird, how I do a deviation to support Drachea and Natzis come crawling into my profile from all around DA. That get's one to think, doesn't it? I'm a pro-Drachea person, I don't want to get to talk with supporters of the swastika. Plz get out of my account, for me you're lower then other ppl, or simply mentally ill. Can't be bothered to even chat with you guys...
I already told Drachea's friends that Drachea should make himself a personal website and he can post his art there including the tutorials that you wanted to learn without any problems. He can also make a forum there as well and if the trolls tried to trolled him there, he can just banned them from his site without waiting for the administrators to do that. He won't have to worry about people giving him a hard time there at his site like here on DA.
