Just writing this because of some recent happening with this member ~MsSimple, and yes I will name and shame as they're acting proud when people make nice comments about their work even after being confronted about ripping it.
She's actually taken the piece in question down, but here's another using the exact same sig as a background [link] They've taken a smudge sig done by a member, who I consider one of the better smudgers in the sig community, and basically just stuck a render on top and changed the colours.
Here's the proof from the previous sig:
And this isn't the only sig in MsSimple's gallery that's ripped either, there's even another that's used the same one as above...
Now normally I'd just let the original artist know and leave it at that, but after getting blocked my the member for confronting them about this, just for them to continue to act like it was actually their work. And the fact that the original artist has actually decided not to post work on dA any more because of this sort of thing, I thought it was time to name and shame.
And the ripping continues [link]
So yeah, ~MsSimple is a ripper. Please don't praise her as it'll probably just encourage more of this sort of thing.
