Opinions on the fake NatMorley

Sun Sep 2, 2012, 3:31 PM



Yes I'm posting a journal as well.
This is about the ever so famous natmorley

This journal is not really meant as proof of anything, only opinions on the matter.

You may have seen her drawings somewhere on this site, and maybe you are a fan. A good number of pencil artists, me included, believe them all to be utter rubbish. Fake rubbish that is.

Now why on earth would you say such a thing?
Well let's have a look at them, shall we?

First of all they all match the reference 100%. Even tracing won't do that for you. Also the drawing looks to be perfect and smooth underneath, and then she's scribbled on top as I there was no tomorrow. I would say that is a bit curious. Why make a perfect drawing only to ruin it with scribbling?

That's her style you might say. Well lets then look at what she says about her drawings. Oh she uses about 5 hours on a portrait. Trust me, if the drawing is perfect (minus the ugly scribbling on top) then you'd use a LOT more than 5 hours.

So how do we believe she does this?
Well for the most part we believe she prints out the image and then scribbles on top to make it look drawn. It's easy to do. She's also proven herself to be quite nifty at editing images. That can be seen on most of her self portraits, where her face, hair and such has been edited. Just google it ;)

Yes I am well aware of live streams that she has done. I saw one of the videos where she drew an image. It was ok, but it did not look half as good as the ones she has in her gallery. I think she can draw, but that she needs a lot of work when it comes to her skills.
Well you may or may not believe that her work is fake, that is up to you. However I would also like to point out that her personality can be most unpleasant.

She has blocked most of my friends, once again that includes me. We did not confront her, we simply discussed the matter in a journal. She read it and blocked us. For someone who claims she's got nothing to hide she sure is skittish.
Also a fun fact; she's been watching a lot of people so they will watch her back. Sounds nice..only she unwatches them right after. Until we commented about this fact she had 0 people on her watch list. After it was pointed out, she started watching.. 1 person :XD:

How do we know this? People have thanked her for the "watch" ;)
Another fun fact is that she does not reply to any of the lovely comments she gets on her art. That is unless the comment questions her abilities. Then she will reply with something along the lines of " I'm only 17 years old, I'm awesome for my age. You're so mean" And she'll often throw in a few profanities just for the heck of it. That or one of her "friends" will stand up and defend her as the saint she is.

And how does she get so much attention on her art? Well it helps that she submits it on almost every group on DA! Her latest drawing is in 281 groups! And I feel my occasional 40 is a bit over the top.

I'm writing all of this because I want my friends to know how she is. This is simply an informative journal based on my observations. Believe whatever you like :nod:

And if her "friends" has something to say to me, please read your comment once or twice before posting, and try to act like a civilized person :nod:

If you want to view any of the proof I suggest checking out these journals:
Fake art by Natmorley!Hi my friends! :wave:
Yep, another Journal about :iconnatmorley:
This is not meant to start a witchhunt, immature harrassment on her profile won't help anything!
:bulletred: EDIT 2::bulletred:

Regarding her latest Journal, I asked some questions. I wonder if she'll answer any of them... Of course, she didn't answer them :facepalm:
:bulletred: /EDIT 2:bulletred:
:bulletblack: So, what's the fuss about her?
Her drawings are fake, simply as that.
:bulletblack: How could you tell?
She makes a scribbly drawing and overlays the original photo in PS to make the shading, hair etc. look better. (OR she prints out the photo and scribbles over it, whatsoever...)
You can always make out some "ghosty shadows" in her works, these are the remainings of the original photo that she just couldn't hide properly.
:bulletblack: Is there any proof?
Here's a older drawing of her (which she already deleted ;) ) where you can clearly
:thumb324305524: Fakers and LosersA while ago, :iconpbird12: a.k.a Paula wrote an article

which states clear cut facts so as to why the whole issue about someone faking their art creates rage waves through the art community!
The last week has been a riot which ended up in me getting blocked by two deviants here who clearly have something to hide!
I obviously care much less about the fact that there are many artists here on dA who get more famous than others considering the skill work. Some people get lucky and some don't. It's not easy getting known around this site.
But the fact that people would want to fake art to get accolades makes me angrier than ever.
Here are two examples on what happens when you try to confront artists whom you are suspicious about!
Example 1- The "awesome":iconnatmorley:

Now now Bratnorley) , you don't need to get all worked up for a single comment there do you?
You obviously think we are all stupid people here who don't really see what you are doing? The scr

There are a lot of links in the comments.

And I would also like to recommend this brilliant journal on how to better spot a faker.
Fake art - why care and what to look forI posted this last week for anyone looking for help to spot fake art.  This is not law, if you don't care, feel free to move on.  But if you do care that there are fakers out there, then maybe this could be of some use to you too.  We have a serial faker on the loose on dA today so it sparked this little lot once more.  
So, the questions/scenarios asked are always the same and the responses/justifications are always the same, but give them a minute to sink in before replying and insulting.
(Q1) Why do you care if someone is cheating what does it have to do with you?
(A1) Well, this is a public ART site and if people are submitting art that is not actually what they claim it to be, then they are dishonest. This will annoy some people and not others. If your passionate about your work then the chances are you'll find it insulting to the artistic community as a whole. Additionally, a lot of admins of groups HAVE to deal with fakes as a daily occure

I met her online years ago and she was an immature little wannabe emo girl. Now I've come across her again and she's even worse. I commented on her poor photoshop skills on her photos on facebook and she blocked me. She's a rat.

Haha :XD: Yeah she's pretty pathetic. But if the people of facebook are stupid enough to like her; then fine. As long as she doesnt pollute the art community with her filth ;)
I've seen her profile images on facebook. How could people not tell that she's photoshopped the crap out of them?

You are extremely skilled in twisting words with the explicit purpose of pure slander WHILE letting your bias show.. Considered a job in political journalism? They make more money off this than Nat does making fake art.

Agreed. When I first saw her stuff I was amazed. THen after really studying it I was wondering how someone who has 100% accurate proportions, lacks mastery in smooth shading. She said she first started drawing at age 12!! Every artist I ever met started drawing from a very young age.She doesn't seem like a decent person either.

I heard I started to draw before learned speak words. Almost every wall was covered with grotesque bear and bird like creatures. Bucktooth 

At age of 7 I worshipped Rien Poortvliet and his art and I still do. Worship 
Other people though my obsessive hobby was bit boring, but at least free and educational. 
I know rare people who started to draw at age of 12. O_o

I don't know who's Nat really, but yes, I've seen her drawings and actually did not care if it was fake or not since everybody here has their own business... I think that's not my business, too. :giggle: Hmmm.. I don't have the appetite to judge her, but oh my god! I just hate teens who seem so arrogant!
"I'm only 17 years old, I'm awesome for my age. You're so mean" ~ I just hate this kind of statement. But yeah, there are kids who could really draw so great that they could beat adults' works. I think those are genius.
Haaaayyyy.... I don't know if kids on DA really know what they're doing. :no:

She's not a pleasant person, that's for sure. I do realise that there are a lot of very talented young artists out there, and my reason for thinking she is fake has never been her age. The drawings are proof in themselves ;)

^^; Oh! I never had a talk or convo with her so I don't know how to judge her personality. Ok, her drawings are fake or whatsoever, but why DA admins not taking any actions about this matter? :confused: Ban her probably?

DA doesnt care. Unless she's posting images of erect penises or stolen art that a kid could recognise as fake, then they wont bother :facepalm:

Yeah it's a bit ridiculous. I mean we aren't even allowed to write journals revealing fake people anymore. It's actually more likely that the ones presenting proof of a fake artists gets banned than the fake artists themselves.

i have to say you make some very very good points, i had a nosey on her page, after i looked at your tutorial you posted before, and was like OMG!!!! she is so faking it, (akmazing what you can see once you know what to look for)
but faking her art is sad, it seems to me like she's faking it to get the DA version of facebook likes.
i mean yea my drawing isnt the best i think i could do so much better which is why i dont submit it but i still dont fake it, i might use an image as a ref but thats it, people should be proud of the work they do, because of the time and effort put into it, but how can you be proud when you'v taken no time and energy and gone the fast and easy way to not even really make something

acjub Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes It's very easy but I cannot see how it is rewarding :no: I'm always so happy when people like my art, but how can she be happy when she didnt make it?
I dont think I can ever understand her. But what irritates me the most is how she has fooled and deceived so many people, I think they have a right to know.

see until you put up your tutorial i had no idea people faked art like that, or even that type munipulation was able maybe i'm just slightly nieve even for an art student studying visuals arts at university,
but like you said how can it be rewarding, and how can she be happy with it or herself when what she's putting up isnt her's

but i'm glad you put up this journal to let other people know what type of person she is, not to trash her, but to get out to the DA community that hay this person isnt so legit on their work. its sad that this had to happen at all, but then it shows you what type of people are out there
