Can you not see the remains of the other artist's drawing in this one neither?
There's one thing taking inspiration... doing paintovers on other people's work isn't fair use of copyright limitations.

Wrong again. The two examples you provided may be similar in style, but that doesn't prove she plagiarized anything. The overall design, facial expression, silhouette and proportions are quite different. I'll once again state what I said before: All professional artists reference each other's work all the time. Of course there's going to be some similarity to other artists' work here and there; it doesn't mean anyone painted over or copied and pasted someone else's work.
Besides, given any subject matter's limitations, there's bound to be some repetition in how it looks whether it was intentional or not. For example, if someone asked you to paint a photorealistic portrait of a woman from a specific angle, specific lighting conditions, design elements, colour palette, etc, chances are it's going to look pretty similar to another established artist's portraits. This argument doesn't hold anymore ground than comic book artists who think they have ownership over the poses they draw their characters in.
Rest assured, I will be contacting this woman so she knows some jealous troll has been spreading lies about her.
EDIT: I just checked her DA profile and found this journal entry, which actually does seem to support your arguments. I guess I owe you guys an apology.
However, I still think this is the wrong way to go about it. If you suspect someone of plagiarism, you need to hear their side of the story before you jump to any rash conclusions. It would also probably be a good idea to notify the artists in question you suspect of having their work ripped off, so they may take care of legal matters themselves. There's no need for vigilante journalism here, people.
