. Just a couple of hours ago I've posted a silly comment noticing how much her OC
reminds me of Rarity with alternate haircut. Her reaction:
Yes, I merely stated the character has strong resemblance to Rarity (or rather her fan version with a ponytail).
Completely inadequate reply. And you know what? False accusations are serious crime
But by calling me an "art thie
f" (Do you speak English?) she dug her own grave - I've browsed through all her gallery
and came to conclusion that, in fact, most (if not all) of her drawings are either TRACES of the show / vectors from the other artists or drawn over the bases
A classic case of "when you wanna draw pretty art but can't be bothered putting in the effort to sketch". And guess what? She even wants other people to pay for her drawings. One Patreon supporter? How cute.
She also appears to be an admin of Ponies-For-Everypony
group. What a great and exceptional person!
I have too little free time to find the actual shot, but here's the thing:
1. A screenshot of Twilight from Season 5 premiere.
2. A base that was used:
3. That particular drawing mentioned in the post:
As you can see, both screenshot and the base have exactly the same style - the lineart's proportions and shapes have 99% match. A "base" is merely a trace with removed features of a character. In this case, all what remained of Twilight is her body, an "optional" horn and the shape of her eyes (note the eyelashes). The "final" drawing was put on top of the base, which essentially makes it a double trace
Now let me explain why it's so bad, aside being a rip-off and a plagiarism: if the "artist" has never
actually learned to draw in this style, (s)he won't be able to draw anything else in such style without bases, because in order to master
a style an artist needs a spatial reasoning
, but you can't obtain nor train it without actually modelling the scene in your head and sketching it "on the paper", over and over and over again.
Now, let's talk about me, the "theif". I wonder why can't you find these drawings, supposedly made by "iLifeLoser", in his own profile?
The answer is: because I
was the one who sketched, lined and coloured them from scratch. It was a stylistic choice to imitate his drawings - not a cheap tracing nor bucking bases!
I'm happy to face a challenge of drawing in tons of different styles, because it's boring to do exact the same thing over and over again. But I spent HOURS working on these, and such out-of-nowhere vile statements making me infuriated.If you still don't get it, adapting a style you feel comfortable with does not equal tracing nor using bases.
Art style cannot be copyrighted. Bases and traces of copyrighted work, on the other hand, are
P.S. It looks like the person in question keeps harassing me in the comments to this journal entry, even though she started it all from the very beginning. Since her arguments and reasoning are completely inadequate, I don't have any other option but mark her flaming as spam. You didn't learned anything.
