I've Been Accused

So I logged on to one of the art communities called SheezyArt and found that one of my latest artwork had been removed from my gallery. I just got a message from one of the moderators, who accused me of art theft. I am shocked! I have linked proof and references of my work. I have NEVER EVER (and will NEVER) steal art as I respect other artists. All credits are properly mentioned in all my works as all of you know. I've had a long tough week and it doesn't make me feel any better. With all the time and effort on my work I've put in (and sore eyes), I'm upset! NOTE: Please read details in the descriptions before assuming anything. I don't know why so many people don't read.  I've CLEARLY provided detailed description with reference links and they assume copying. Yes, the real photo is not mine's, but the art IS! Would you call this stealing?

I joined these other art communities to share my work and be exposed around the world. Now that I find that there are a lot of "unfriendly" people and immature kids on SheezyArt, my friends tell me to get out of there. I don't call it a critique when they just say your work is "ugly" or "unpleasant" or other negative comments. There's no respect. Because of this, I will be closing my account.

There are also other small art communities where I submit art, but have to wait for the admin to approve before it is posted (which takes about a week or more). It's kinda dumb. Or there's other sites that nobody leaves any feedback at all. But that is another story unlike the above mentioned. Yes, it really hurts me and my reputation.

Thank-you, my friends over at CGWaves and DeviantArt, for the comforting and support.

I have sent a private message to the moderator

This is the first time I have ever been accused of art theft. Seriously... As a true artist, I don't support copied work nor steal from others. I always credit every reference that I use. This issue really hurts me and my reputation. If you didn't read my entire description, please look again.
