Twice in one day just isn't fair.
I'm not going to put any links. It wasn't posted today but I only just found it today. (No it's not the same person. And it's been taken down now, but that doesn't change the fact that it happened.)
You know what, I don't have the energy to be angry anymore. I'm just crying now. In SORROW.
There is not a doubt in my mind that the people that trace my stuff and post it on dA are watchers of mine.
A message to people who do this: Please, just stop. I don't like being upset and you're genuinely upsetting me. If you want something to trace, go open up an episode of Digimon on YouTube that has your cat/dragon/dog/bird of choice in it and take a screen shot and trace that. Then it won't be obvious you just copied the Digimon's official default pose.
Just please. Please leave my stuff alone. Leave other people's stuff alone too.
I will notice. I remember everything I draw and I can recognize tracing within seconds.
I don't like making emotional journal entries but I'm just so unhappy.
This isn't "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". This is laziness on your part, and is disrespectful to me and the time I put into my work.
