Now I know that sometimes when we see art of other people we're like
"Wow this thing's fabulous, I wish I can do art like this!"
But that does not, under any circumstance mean you can just frickin copy and paste it and claim the beautiful piece of awesomeness as yours! Recently, there has been a shitty little cupcake that has been doing this and I am so so embarassed that she got into one fof the groups I handled. x-One-Piece-Lovers-x
. Well, at least she didn't get into OnePieceContests
but still! Thankfully a cupcake of justice informed me of the thefts. Not saying who it is coz I might get killed XD Anyway let's go back to the more serious note.TheScarletBerserker
is a fraud. People who watch her please unwatch her like RIGHT NOW. She's been here for three days but she's already doing art theft in the One Piece and Fairy Tail fandom. //Not an admin of an Fairy Tale groups so I hope they find this person too and give her a good ass whooping, I mean 'lesson'. OFC I meant lesson. I'm not that cruel //trying so hard not to say anything very bad
And you know cupcakes, art theft won't help you grow. Sure you have a lot of followers/watchers/etc. but they follow you for other people's art and that's some low crap. So then you're like
"But I just refernced the stuff I see, is that alright?"
TOTALLY FINE. AS LONG AS YOU GIVE CREDIT OFC.
Just don't trace everything. Referencing from a picture is actually good practice. I did it when I was younger. You can look at the picture and try to draw it yourself. In your own style. With your own quirks. Not just effin' copy paste and BOOM! 'Cupcake this piece of flawless art is mine and I totally did not just steal it from a pixiv/tumbLr/zero-chan/Google+ artist' Yah, cupcakes she stole from that many people.
Join the club and stop this madness. Also. DON'T YOU EVER FRICKIN DO THIS. I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND BRING YOU TO MERCILESS JUSTICE.
