Im getting tired of all the recoloring pictures. especially pictures of Sonic the hedgehog. Some kids would change sonic to green and call him a different name.. Its still sonic you know..


I moved this to the Artist's Corner considering it has to do with art. I've also edited some forum posts within the thread to spoiler tag all the quote blocks ;O!

Anyway, on topic, yeah, I know what you're talking about when it comes to recoloring stuff. What's even worse are people try to pass something off as their own. There are a ton of people out there who actually offer to create OC characters for people, some for free, some for a nominal fee. Either way, it's just meh when you see people just not giving credit where it is due.

Overall, people need to start valuing art more seriously and not take it for granted whether its from a big corporation or just someone from DA. All art has been made by a certain individual and if there is no CLEAR outline saying it can be distributed or altered by the original creaters it's STEALING!

I gotta admit that I do cringe when good artwork gets buried from piles of pony, furry, or swapwork. Sometimes I do wish there is a system does filters out these type of works but at the same time, putting a filtering system tends to have the users to transform the site into one specific interest which is a bad thing. This is why I take advantage of the group feature and gain some notice from there. This has happen for so long that I find its not worth fussing over and just continuing improving my own skills and hopefully the swappers would gain interest in creating their own style. If the person is making money out of swap work, he/she better get ready to feel the wrath of the world.

I remember there was a case like this and the person gained money from doing this. The people were outrage at the theft. You can check out these sites.
