It's not the way I see it, that seems a little harsh on them. I feel it's more they want to be like them and are so inspired they make their 'versions' of that persons work. True it hurts me but I'm not gonna sit here and bash them and make them feel hurt...
Yeah I can accept being inspired but sometimes it can go too far and hurts people... that's when crazy shit happens people get blocked and reported and it becomes a huge ass mess that could've been avoided from the beginning
Ugh when people steal characters it really makes my blood boil. People spend lots of time and even money into their characters and it is just so unfair. Art style is a little different, imo, when someone bases a art style after another is mainly to learn. I know in some situations this is not true but mostly it is to learn from someone they look up to.
They didn't steal any per say but they are making them like mine AFTER i show/ make mine which is annoying me... And what I mean by art style is that I can see them try to do some stuff the way I do, I can accept people getting 'inspiration' but trying to copy me gets them no where they need to learn their own unique style. That's just how I see it anyway
notice I said 'try' as in I can clearly see them making their characters look more and more like mine even creating them after I make/ show mine. Also a style can sorta be 'copied' not to exactly but to some extent
It does hurt, worse part they don't even realise how much they hurt me. I need to vent and the poll was a way of doing so, I didn't mention them as not to hurt them more. I'll tell them in my own little way
I wouldn't say it'll go that far, like I said I don't wanna hurt them. I just wish that they wouldn't base some characters off mine, especially when I only just make the character or show it and then like a day or so later there's theirs looking like mine
