Yeah, I always assumed it was the latter.

She always really got on my nerves, and I can't say I'm super shocked by this.

YOU made some calls, Sam? YOU did ALL the detective work on that one, Sam?

A lot of people believed Ryan when he said he was in art school too.

Kinda lame, really, after the whole "I'm real sorry for lying to you guys about how cool my job/life is" from the last time, and how people who played WoW with him were still happy to do so because "he changed and is a nice guy who wouldn't go around deceiving people".

Classy.
Well, he did seem to have turned things around in so far as he was a) always nice, quiet and courteous b) never talked shit or made up stories. He pretty much didn't say boo most of the time.

I never had enough in common with TabbyKat to pay attention really. All I knew was she was supposedly an athlete and liked making cat characters in MMO's. Finding out she was RyanLee the whole time is fucking hilarious however. 3 years, wow... that's a new record.

Pretty much. Even if she was a chick she was a super annoying one.

In SWG, he was pretty straight up during my time there. Never caught him lying, making things up, stealing anything--he was helpful and friendly and worked pretty hard to try and be a good part of the group. He actually earned back some trust and goodwill, not just from me. If that was really him and he just threw it all away, it's a bit heartbreaking.

I just very clearly recall the facts in that case differing a bit. And I can dig up chat logs to prove it.

There's this, but it could very well be the same girl as in the OP. The other one looked like an entirely different person.

I remember when the art thing happened. I had believed he didn't trace because I have the ability to replicate art down to the minutest lines and details and I was myself accused of tracing in back in school because of it.

Ah god, I still remember when someone looked up Jemma Jameson's schedule because Ryan's story was so heavily unbelievable.

That's a little extreme, don't you think? Or do you just live in a small town?

The art thing was stupid. Yeah, he shouldn't have claimed it as his own, but apart from the poses it was still original drawings of people's SWG characters. The poses were the only copied thing, the Zabrak face tattoos and horns and custom pistols were still custom.

Nah, Ryan did get a lot of noise for trying to pass off traced drawings as art school projects. I think the one I remember the most was based on a J Scott Campbell drawing, though I could be wrong. No added SWG stuff, just the same drawing that he then colored in.

The problem that made it obvious wasn't that it was too close to the original artists drawings. What made it obvious was the telltale wiggly line that inexperienced tracers get - they have the ability to follow most of the line, but don't have years of muscle-memory control built in, so the lines have a subtle shakiness. It's hard to miss when you know what it looks like.

RyanLee steamed about it in his LJ which culminated in a "these guys should be careful, publicly posting that they'll be at meets, anyone could show up... not saying I would, buuuuuut" post, long since deleted I am sure.

also he called Goblin King "Gayblin Queen" I think, which is in many ways even worse than the weak threats
