since a lot of you are still watching me for some reason here's a psa

art theft is not okay.
it's unacceptable and just plain douchey.
like seriously if you're just dying for attention and think that's the way to get it, you're wrong.
you're so wrong. why?
because art theft is wrong.
and dA has a huge fucking problem with this.
and it's bullshit.
it's grimy and pathetic.
if you're that insecure about your art, then don't fucking upload anything.
don't upload someone else's hard work and try and take credit.
or trace over their work.
that's also bullshit.
(unless you're given permission- i know some artists allow people to color their work or things like that.)

it's happened to me, it's happened to my friends, and it's happened all over this website and others.
just give it up.

why would anybody upload anything anywhere if they knew it was just going to be stolen or traced?
because they count on their watchers and admirers not to do that.
so just don't.

i'm so sick of seeing this.

Can I do a collage of your work and post it if I label it as such?
