    Anyone familiar with the art section? Read this about Elvorith and why he removed he art.
    he claimed at wc3sear(he removed hes art) that he just made this for ROTHE when yet in SnowSkadi's DA gallery.
    http://www.deviantart.com/view/14888914/
    he had been to deviantart and taken various arts from various artists.


    Once i notified him of deviantart elvorith responded by removing hes art from wc3sear. will this help though? no.
    I remember asking Elvo that he should make a DA gallery, but he said no and he wont make one, and i now know why...
    for look here and bedazzle your eyes.

    http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/12328214/
    remember him saying he done that recently? well this was done over a year ago in SnowSkadi's Gallery, and here we see this person has a WIP for it at a bigger resolution and a small for fun image showing proof of the orignality by the size.
    these are seen in SnowSkadi's scraps gallery here:
    http://snowskadi.deviantart.com/scraps/?type=scraps&offset=48

    remeber hes animal creature? well here's the line art for it(un mirror yet).
    http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/12566162/
    and the final peice. http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/12646028/
    Elvorith colour changed it and added glows on the eyes. but the glows cant be removed only added so this here( SnowSkadi's) is the original.

    oh, everyone remember this?
    http://www.deviantart.com/view/11825136/

    SnowSkadi signs her work by putting her webgalleries site on it. and well remember elvo's dragon? Ever wondered why alot of hes so called work was cropped?
    hes cropped the art to hide the artists sig.
    Hes medivh work had its flag cropped.
    The dragon is tail tip cropped:
    http://www.deviantart.com/view/12241199/
    the centaur male sketch, legs cropped etc.

    aww..remember that unicorn? well here it is in the same gallery. and it was submitted there over 2 years ago.
    http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/9059296/


    Elvorith Stole these arts from Snow Skadi's gallery
    http://snowskadi.deviantart.com/

    and HER web gallery here:
    http://www.skadi-winter.narod.ru/
    Snow skadi is a 21 year old female who works for a russian card company and all her work has the same style dragon etc, so i think she would have no reason to steal from elvorith when she has wip's and 200 artworks.

    Remember that dragon he claimed that hes friend stole and subbed at wc3sear? well take a close look at the wings, they have been 3d textured, yes, its a 3d model.
    http://www.wc3sear.ch/index.php?p=Art&ID=530&sid=11590fd37bc74a728dd06dbf6d01fd22

    elvo subbed the same pic but in smaller res recently and when i informed him of the old on he paniced and claimed hes friend stole it.

    Elvorith lied to us all, he used us and daelin, but since i had informed him he deleted hes art and ran(making it harder for me to show proof but not imposible.), so just incase you wonder why he hasnt been around latly :lol:

    That is truly disgusting. Idiots always think they can get away with things don't they? And Elvorith wanted to be a moderator? That is really pathetic. I often wondered how in the world Elvorith had enough time to do 10 hour works day after day, though I had never really questioned it.

    Beyond just fooling most of us, that idiot pretty much screwed up Daelin and his project for art concepts.

    By any chance, did Elvorith say where he/she lived? I could always use a little extra hunting practice.

    But i dont hate elvorith, just whats hes done.

    His arts did seem familier. Like I did while aiding daelin with the great Icon purge of -6564 Q^d, I decided to see where the heck those awesome icons and arts came from...to my surprize, nothing. Google, www.www.com, ask jeeves, yahoo...nothing. I was confused, and gave up. I thought that maybe some artists are as good as computers...and better...those arts where just...amazing...I didn't even know where to take up my search.

    I thank you for completing the hunt for me werewulf. You don't know how thankful to you I am for catching what I could not hunt down. The only thing I hate you for is stealing credit for what I had attempted (and failed) at acchieving, not even mentioning my efforts.

    It sickens me... To think I actually revered this man as an artist...

    Leaves me to wonder how many other great pieces of work around here are actually stolen works ..

    Overall *gets out railgun* pain time =)

    You all have already stated what I would.

    I don't think a ban is neccesary. I don't believe he will come back.

    I think IP-ban is necessary. I guess he'll leave the old account, and then creates a new one..
    But otherwise, IP's can be changed...

    its not like a reward, if i did it to gain a reward of privilage then me annoucning elvo would be the act of selfishness or jelousy.
    but C.R is genuine, he is a REAL artist, he paints for churches and is the son of the famous Valeriy Kagounkin and Tamara Magdalina.
    hes parents site is here.
    http://www.valeriyart.com/[url] an...e artists in the world wrapped in one family.

    I disagree. I think he should be given a second chance.

    He could do the same thing, though. :?

    If we do, it's a risk, if we don't, it's a risk. Life is a risk. Pick the best choice within your heart.

    Not like it matters much if he does it again, it is just some stolen art. Can always be deleted without any big harm done.

    Are you crazy? he intentionally stole another's artwork and claimed it as his own, if you do such things you don't deserve a second chance, he should have thought about that before.
    I think he should be banned incase he comes back.
