I think this whole "How's college?"/"Shiny desu w@"/fraud/scheme has gotten old enough.
I don't agree with what she and Ramy have done, I don't find it ethical. It's frankly insulting to everyone on this site or who ever looked up to them. But let's face it, people still find Amuria's art good, even though there are way better artists around this site who have no exposure.
She is a good entrepreneur, she knew what to do in order to get popular, even though it was the frowned upon way. I actually think she put effort into advertising her "art".
Don't be sad :iconlotus-orchidveins: that you discovered this site thanks to Amuria, be happy that now you can discern a real artist from a fraud and truly enjoy what this site has to offer.
Let's leave it at that and go give a thumb's up to a person who's all about art and not drama.

Sorry if I wasn't clear enough. Yes it's about Amuria, and what she did together with Ramy.

Theft? Oo I knew she was hated because the experssions of her characters looked the same each time, but art theft? And Ramy, too? I did not know that...

She didn't steal art. At Anime Expo 2008 they had four to five tables registered under different names displaying the same artwork at the Artist’s Alley. This was of course not allowed and got reported by the other artists at said convention. And this happened at another convention, Otakon if I remember correctly, where she and Ramy got around 10+ tables. So instead of other artists getting tables, she had more than was permitted per artist/group. This all for the fame and money.

Ah, yes, I heard something like that about Ramy once. That's ashaming :( I'm glad their cover was blown at least. I don't see what's the point of a con like this which will bring you nothing but the hatred of the people who admired you once.
Thank you for explaining to me :)

It's sad to find out that the reason I discovered deviantART in the first place was because of an art theft fraud. .__.
