hmm... that --electric-barbarella-- girl on eBay (who was copying my paintings) just changed her name to ***little*black*kitty*cat***

Yep, she admitted to copying my paintings in an attempt to "learn how to paint". I explained to her that while copying others' work in order to learn technical proficiency is one thing, but then posting the pieces on the internet as "original" and trying to sell them is quite another thing all together! Looking through her previous auctions it appears that she had copied some other eBay artists' work as well. I really, really, hate it when so called "artists" watch eBay to see what type of work is selling the best, or what style is doing well, and then they base their own style/poses/etc. off of that. I see it over and over again. Usually it's not quite copyright infringement (it sure was in that seller's case though!), so there's often not much the original artist can do about it. Ugh.

well at least now that you have confronted her she stopped cpoying your paintings. i hope by this she has learned her lesson and won't copy anyone else's art either.
