Brony Artist Scamming Customers and Stealing Money wants to attend BC - Skyline19 by


The beacons are lit! Tumblr calls for aide! 

It's been quiet around here...too quiet... and sure enough, that means trouble.
Yesterday, HN was alerted to the antics of a reported scam artist called Skyline19, who according to this post  has been "scamming customers and stealing money" and "running a doubtful story about being blind and homeless and getting shitloads of cash", for at least 3 years from bronies and other art patrons online. The NEW part of the news, is that he is now trying to get money donated to him...so he can attend Bronycon this year...

Something's not right here...

Now, what's remarkable about this particular tip, is just how extensively sourced it is, and how long it's been going on.


From what we've gathered by looking through the fucking entire blog of compiled evidence is that as of this week, the DA user named Skyline19, who has been soliciting money - literally hundreds upon hundreds of dollars - under the pretenses of hunger, homelessness, and a list of other reasons, is now attempting to get donations so that he can attend Bronycon this year.

The first red flag here is..."priorities", right? Well it's a bit more than that.


This has received a very vocal backlash from the pony community, as many have attested to Skyline19's habits of accepting payments for commissions and never delivering them, on top of the soliciting of donations for his care.


Another screencap dated from 2014 indicates that at one point he had received nearly $2000 in assistance from his DeviantArt followers via paypal.


His followers, or ex-followers rather, have no sympathy for his lack of ability to attend a fan-gathering of pony enthusiasts.


In another recent incident, it's suggested that he took the money that was donated to him to help him "pay for food" (after countless posts about hunger pains and needing $20 to receive life-giving sustenance) and used it to purchase a DeviantArt Core Membership instead.


Given the number of complaints from nearly 3 years of activity, it is safe to say that Skyline19 is by no means a trustworthy individual, and we would caution all prospective patrons against commissioning his art.

In the meantime, check out the boiling rage that is his comments section!

Copy-pasta of the original old post of bullshit.
"This crap has been going on since 2013, basically, Skyline19 http://skyline19.deviantart.com has been running a doubtful story about being blind and homeless and getting shitloads of cash , even if that story is true he is still scamming people with commissions that he never delivered after more than a year and here is the proof:

  1. Talented? I'm wlling to bet 10 bux everything is eyeballed/copied, if not outright traced.

    Can't fault him for riding the horse train though, pones are known for their extreme gullibility. Ya thnk he's gonna activate his Dindu card?

    1. His art is literally nothing, in case you didn't notice.

  2. He's like Lauren Faust these past 3 years, except he didn't work on the show before then!

  3. I wonder if anyone's pointed out that most of his gallery is filled with works by artists that have deleted their accounts.

    1. If all the orphaned pics could be sourced back to their creators, that would nail this dindu so hard he'd lynch himself off the nearest tree.

    2. Should be noted that what is there looks shite. If what you say is true, that just makes it even better.

    3. As much as I hate that bastard for what he did, the art is his own work, but his transformers and old artwork looks traced. I don't know about the massive drop in quality, maybe he is on drugs.

      Delete
    4. You mean the massive quality drop that occurs when he's uploading a commission instead of just any old gallery submission that can be anything you want? And the only commission he's done in a while is a huge quality drop upload of a piece that's basically "Can you draw character X plz?"

    5. Considering how the entire fandom so easily and willingly ate Tracepony's ass for years, it's not that far fetched to think his watchers are dumb enough to fall for his dindu shennanigan.

  4. Any chance we can get anonymous to check this guy out?

  5. This guy. THIS. GUY. Yeah, stay away from him. Having tons of legit medical issues, myself, I thought I'd throw a few bucks his way for a dA icon and avatar. Two years -- TWO YEARS -- later, and NADA.

    Claiming you are blind and then bitching about all the "cool" PSN games you're playing EVERY NIGHT ... well, you ain't no genius, are you?

    FUCK YOU.

    1. Heya Jaker. Was wondering if you'd post here after you saw the link :P

    2. My comment doesn't seem to be posting for some reason. That actually isn't me. Who is this by the way?

    3. Yeah, I'm not Jaker. However, I guess I sound like him. It's all the voice lessons. -- Snarky McSnarkerface

  6. You guys can use legal action against him. The case is strong with this one.

  9. How long has he been on drugs? Quality that is all over the place, constantly needing money, not even bothering to cover up his lies. Dude is definitely addicted to something.

  10. I've seen this guy floating around. He's nothing more than an e-begging scam artist who plays into the sympathy of gullible fucks.

  11. It's started again. Begging for food moneys.
