Is it okay if I keep this up? I worked hard on it.  Hey there, cutie... by StarlightGlimmerLuvr

No, please take it down. I didn’t give permission for the base in the first place so why would I be okay that other people use it? I would appreciate if you take it down

*Sigh* Okay, fine. I don’t understand why you don’t like people making bases out of your art, even if they credit you. It’s honestly really stingy if you ask me, because you charge real money for your art, and even if people ask for your permission, you say no so it’s pointless. I don’t like artists who refuse to share their art with people to make bases. It’s honestly really annoying. Especially when that person works really hard on the base art. It’s like if people want your art style, they better give you money or nothing. I don’t like artists like that.

Wow, they really worked hard on that base! It’s not like the original artist worked hard on it or anything, and wouldn’t like that people trace over it without permission. I appreciate you taking the art down, but your logic is kinda flawed.

Yeah, well I get it, but I thought you’d have at least learned something about Generosity from Rarity and sharing your art with others. Seriously.

No, she didn’t. And it makes me really mad, since I worked hard on it. It’s like basically I have to take down all that hard work. She basically expects people to pay her money to have stuff done in her art style, and she can’t even share her art style with people to make bases. I hate stingy artists like that. Like, did they learn nothing about being generous from Rarity?

This has nothing to do with generosity. If someone was to copy Rarity's dress designs and just used different colours, it would bother her too, wouldn't it? Like in this one episode where this pony used her special fabric for all her dresses without her permission. It did upset her, she wasn't okay with it at all. It's basically the same thing here. Artists invest years into improving their art, and yes, if you like someone's art you should consider paying them for it. Because it is THEIR art. They share it, but that doesn't give others the permission to just make bases of it, that's theft. Even if they credit the artist, if they don't want others to make a base out of it, that's their right. It's just frustrating if you invest hours in a piece of art, and someone else just traces it. That is unfair and rude. I'm sorry to hear you worked hard on your drawing, but that still doesn't make it right. And to be so rude to the artis, just because they don't want their art to be used without permission...Thought Fluttershy would've taught you something about kindness.

Well, I deleted it, so that should be all that matters.

Yes, it's good that you deleted it, some people don't even do that. But just remember to stay respectful,okay?
