Now, on various Art sites/other sites that I have visited in my years as an internet user, I have noticed that some people don't understand what counts as Art Theft, what counts as referencing, and how to deal with crediting!
WELL TODAY IS YOUR LUCKY DAY!
I have been a part of various online art communities (mainly as a pixel artist) for almost 10 years now and am amazed at how many people are either overly cautious or have no regard for others' artwork. I am by no means an expert, but I think I know how things work by now.
Please feel free to comment, ask things, tell me your opinions on this guide~!
