Hey to all,

Came across this gallery here: http://j-century.deviantart.com/

I'm not sure what is going on with the Soul Calibur characters as well Enzio and Resident Evil characters, but there it goes, if anyone wanted a heads up as to their work being ripped off...or something.

The reason I'm bringing this up is because I thought Enzio was modeled by some talented bloke at Ubi in Montreal, and not by someone in Malaysia.
There's a very good chance that I experienced MORE problems, then all the internet put together in the area of 3D. Talk about being original for once...

Interesting, the person does claim to ripping models and changing them for rendering.. on some of them. On others there's no info but for some he claims he makes them, sometimes makes them in a day, sometimes 2 if it's a complicated model. Only uses 3dsmax and photoshop, says he has no knowledge of ZBrush. Says some of them are made as a team though..? On one model it says: Polys : 179,167 Verts : 99,469 256x256 Diffuse, Normal and Alpha Map.


Also has some strange responses to comments like:

"how many polygons/tris?"
"I think It's quite much, I didn't notice the polygons."

"Please make a tutorial . You did it really fast ! Please !...."
"LoL I haven't reached that level yet, dude."

"a quick question, is it rigged? "
"What mean rigged?"

"what modeling technique do you use?"
"Modeling Technique ? What did you mean?"

Interesting stuff to look at indeed. Mind = blown. The thing is that for some of them I could tell that they weren't ripped from a game, but then where else does he get them from?

Totally from MVC3. This too. And yes, he is even crediting Rexil as the original artist as that's the art thief we were discussing not too long ago.

It's Rip Ahf Baby!
fine. If you don't want me to do art, then I won't.

I know all my BloodRayne 2 art has been ripped.

I personally don't care. Technically the art doesn't belong to me and I have all the source files should I ever have to prove that I modeled it one day.

It's fun seeing what they do with them.

This kind of rippers are everywhere , there are also those that plays with our work, aka frankenstein style LOL and that's worse.

This is not an artist, just a fan of games ripping their content because he loves it. There are communities specialized in ripping the content of Unreal Engine games such as Tera, or Blade & Soul.

Deviant should not tolerate this kind of things, but if you look better, that site is full of stupids and arrogant kids with too much ego, so report is the best solution. They think the internet is so huge... and their actions will always be noticed lol

Wanna kill his moral? report him massively. He will be surely banned.

it doesnt really matter. From what I can see is that anyone's art gets stolen or could get stolen and be changed for some other project if think about it.

for example:

Thief = Assassin's Creed

its funny he has 102 models in his devian art page, he is 24 according to his facebook page. lets say he is incredibly talented, has all the time in the world and needed 4 weeks for each model, that would take him 8 1/2 years of modeling without a break xD so what he wants to say he started with 15 1/2 all those projects? when did he started learning? with 11? mega lol

this definitely made my day xD
