I am just trying to be careful out there. art theft is a big crime on DA. You don't seem like the type to do that, and I am not calling you an art thief. I don't want you to get in trouble and I just want whats best for deviants. I do have the right to say what I need to, and I have a right to voice concern and try to help artists. There are groups out there that are rampant about art theft, and I don't want you to be accused or abused by them. It may not be a pleasant thing to see in comments, but I just want the best for you. You may need to note the user deactivated and the original image used for the base. Like I said, I am not calling you an art thief. I am just voicing concern and don't want you to get in trouble.
I do the same thing. Thats why when I see someone using a style I am aware of and say its a base, I track down the base, then the original artist; I dont slam on the person who used the base; they didn't know. Same thing for me. I'm simply using something someone else already put out.
If they did not get permission, that is their fuck up; the base users shouldnt be punished for someone else's mistake.
I am weary of people and what they do. I tell it to them straight. Call it slamming, but I had to speak up. If I have suspicion, I let them know. Its pretty uncool to argue on this person's art work. I wanted to let creator know so they could clarify. That was a question for them to answer, not you to pick and argue. The original artist know what they want for their work, and its a question for them. It was to prevent needless reporting. If you are to confront me, then go to my page. We are supposed to spam this person. Its immature and taking space up for helpful input on the piece.
