Clearly our priorities differ a bit on the matter, Lappy.

Your take is one I recognize, because I see it all the time. I used to have it myself.

It usually goes something like this;
"They should just be happy that I chose to use their artwork, right? Even if I change it so that I like it better. Can't they just appreciate that?"

Me and my friends and colleagues have had to deal much too often with art thieves, and people who find work that's taken hours of fine adjusting to get right and just change the colours to purple and pull the contrast way up, because that looks so much better, right, and now they're an artist too. All the times I hear about commercial websites, Russian restaurants, and such things using hobbyists' artwork without them even knowing of it. Are the creators just glad they liked it enough to use it on their site banner or their menu? Are they glad someone recoloured their hard work and put it uncredited on tumblr, for thousands to reblog? No. No, they never are. Back when they didn't have to deal with this, with all the drama that follows being an artist on the internet, they might have been okay with it, but now the appreciation in someone choosing to use our work is gone.

This is never black and white. Themes on PC are in almost all cases fine, and they're usually good at giving credit, too. I just wish more people thought about how the artist, the human being who put a lot of effort into this picture, would feel. Because uploads on DeviantArt are not public domain.

Using stolen artwork for personal gain, be it money or reblogs, is of course wrong. I thought that would go without saying to be honest with you. I actually have first hand experience of something like it and it was irritating. >tfw a football manager image pack you worked on and are giving away for free ends up on ebay

For personal use though nope. I believe in equality. If a person steals anime, music, tv shows, books and software without thanking the producers then why should artists be any different?

Of course if I were to upload a few of my pictures only to see them bastardised perhaps my stance would change slightly. I don't think it would but it might.

Yeah, you're pretty much right.
My (slightly idealistic) view on piracy is that it's a method for consumers to compare and gain access to products they otherwise wouldn't, while still respecting the work and its author, by purchasing when possible and worth the product. Once again with my bloody honour systems. Though I know it's often not the case.

Now that I think about, it's rather funny how I, someone who consistently browses /a/, can preach universal kindness and respect on the internet.

I think this is why I've been using less and less themes that are made from using fanart to using things such as sprites, what I'm using now, or more ideally, my own artwork. Of course until I am completely satisfied with my art abilities it might still be a while until I don't use fanart again like Pokey but I feel like I've gotten better with not using fanart as often and when I do seeing about crediting the original artist.

If screens from anime you should be crediting the underpaid Koreans the anime studios outsource to.

I watched a video where a dude drank some 20 year old Crystal Pepsi. I think it was fake but if it wasn't I hope he got poisoned for doing something so stupid.

They hate it.

SHAFT also use slaves but they are slightly more selective. They have to be Korean foot fetishists.

Feels odd that I've been a member on this site since I was thirteen.

Man, people change a lot in five years.
