|An overlay of the 2 art pieces in question|
Ahhh yes, here were are again. Another #horsefamous content creator, another accusation of being a dirty tracer.
No, not that kind. The DrawPonies kind.This time, it's longtime vendor-hall regular Toxic Mario who has had the accusation leveled upon him...and the evidence isn't easy to ignore.
Here's ToxicMario's piece.
And here's the piece that people are claiming he traced to create it, Yoko from Gurren Lagann.
yeahhh....we can see where they got the impression this was traced.
Just like DrawPonies, Toxic-Mario makes money selling his artwork at conventions, so the accusation that his art may be tainted is a heavy one.
ToxicMario has denied the claims on his DeviantArt account and assures his followers that it took him FIVE DAYS to create his crossover, and that he has video proof of it. He however has not actually released this evidence...for some reason.
Toxic Mario then feigned ignorance on how to share a 900MB video file on the internet.
When a follower suggested YouTube, he ignored the suggestion.
How an artist who holds livestreams of his work could pretend to not know how to upload a relatively small video file to the internet is beyond me.

The artist's name is Kawata Hisashi.
It took literally 15 seconds.
So there you have it. RELEASE YOUR
