Swiss YouTuber and artist Shadman, who is notorious for his pornographic art and webcomics, was allegedly arrested for assaulting someone with a deadly weapon. Now, Internet sleuths are claiming he's heavily addicted to heroin.

Shaddai Prejean, 31, better known as Shadman or Shadbase, is known for his artworks on 'loli' girls and other characters such as Elastigirl. For the uninitiated, Loli is a child-like female character, who looks and behaves like an underage girl, in Japanese anime and manga, particularly in the 'lolicon' genre. In 2009, Shadman created his website, the Shädbase and Newgrounds account and he made his YouTube account way back in 2010. He began gaining a cult following after launching his online career and became a controversial figure due to his art. In 2019, Shadman said that he had decided to quit drawing loli and pornographic art owing to the backlash he faced.

There is very limited information on Shadman's personal life, but the Sleepy Cabin podcast has claimed that he originally resided in Zurich, Switzerland, and attended an art school. But when school authorities discovered that the work available in his portfolio was "highly illegal," he was expelled. Shadman then did freelance art work before coming up with his own website in 2019. He was reportedly called a "menace to society" in Switzerland and he later moved to the US.

Shadman's videos mostly consist of drawings of fictional characters from pop culture. He stopped uploading videos in 2018, stating he would quit drawing vulgar art. Shadman has been criticized often for his politically incorrect art. For instance, when English animator Edd Gould died, Shadman drew an artwork of Edd being raped by the grim reaper. He was defended by some of his friends, who stated that his art was meant to be offensive on purpose.

Shadman is infamous for his art of underage girls called 'lolis', which some said is fictional. But he is also known for drawing pornographic art of real underage people. He has also made 34 works of 'porn art' of his own mother. Although Shadman claimed that he regretted making such art, he continued posting such content.
