Destiny Community Manager Cozmo monitored the situation today. “There was some confusion while creating this post and the art of @ relay314 was accidentally used,” he said. confirmed. “We contacted them and got permission to use their work and now credit them for this impressive community performance of Xivu Arath.”

Even before this resolution, Mal E repeatedly pointed out that they didn’t think Bungie had used his art intentionally or maliciously, at any given time.
