I'm a tumblr user too, and I saw all the hate, and yes, it's not right to copy an artist's work, but all the hate was a little much. I enjoy your work on this so far, and I hope you continue it, but just remember not to use popular art to recreate, just for your sanity's sake.
Yeah, I've kind of got that now. And thank you again. I won't copy anything and if I do, I won't post it. I didn't mean to take credit and offend so many people either. I usually ask or give credit but I didn't have the link for this, and some others.
Its okay. Sometimes if you ask first, they may be okay with it? I LOVE to color people's lines for practice, but I never post them anywhere. But I asked Arystar once, and she said I could post it if I credited her.
But I understand that sometimes imitation is a way to practice. Just not a way to produce pieces.
If you need anyone to vent to, don't be afraid. i'm "thaticecoldwater" on tumblr.
