Does anyone remember when art styles were actual movements and it was ok to jump on the bandwagon? Like the renaissance, impressionists, or abstract expressionist artists?

Honestly this "art style theft" mentality is so toxic. You can't steal an art style lol.

And whoever you think you stole it from probably wasn't the first person to draw that way either. And they were probably inspired by someone else, who was inspired from someone else, who was inspired by...you get the idea. :shrug:

That's just how art is. How it always has been, how it always will be.

I hope you can move past this way of thinking. :hug:

i hope too cuz it maked me feel guilty even tho my logical self knows this is stupid as hell... but im not bothered that i took someones style so im stealing, its hard to put my finger on it. guess its more like not feeling like its mine, even tho i know it cant belong to anyone and i didnt take it. but somehow it still feels like im not authentic
im sorry this made no sense

Lol don't feel like that
This is one of the biggest reasons why I hate it when people try to spread around the "art style theft" thing
Your art is your art, you draw however and whatever you want
You aren't tracing someones art, you aren't straight up copying a drawing, you aren't stealing, in my opinion you can't steal or completely own an art style or a way someone draws
Then all the anime artists would be stealing from eachother

Draw the way you like to draw, it's not something you should feel bad about
