Half the responses seem to be 'but blue, who does it hurt? isn't this just about having fun?'
Short answer? No.
Long answer? Is very long, but I'll attempt to outline it.
In its very simplest way, art theft takes attention from original pieces. A person who takes another person's work and tries to pass it off as their own is directly hurting the original artist.

Exploring DA app on my iPhone...maybe I'll post a bit more.  

I just got ClipStudio and have ordered a Wacom intuos tablet/pen which should arrive Sunday!  

Excited to explore dabbling again!  I wouldn't call what I do as "art" but I'm going to explore new techniques and learn along with my good friend Angela! ❤️

Here's to new learning in the new year! 🎨

Noticed you have been around for awhile but a lot of your comments have been from the past, your work is absolutely phenomenal so I am hoping you are still around and active with your art maybe just not posting as much! Regardless I must "watch" just in case!
