Thnx, that's really helpful. The thing with google images is that most of the images you find are from other sites than DA and most of the time I source I find out that the image comes from DA. But I for instance use refs to help myself, not to copy anything. And I try to credit them even if I don't know where it comes from >U< But anyways thnx >U<

Don't be sorry for the long journal, you're totally right. When we START to draw, we don't know much about how using references, we make the mistake to copy the others artists works. Credits are important and it's cool to take personal pictures too. It's important to learn how using references. We use them as a help, not a copy. People are just jealous and have nothing to do but just just insult you or try to break you and your art. Don't pay much attention to them, just credit, use references properly and Enjoy you art Heart Love

I am sorry you were plagiarized. I have experienced that also and it isn't fun. Good luck! Your art is amazing!

theoretically, everybody must know the ethic code of taking the image or picture that doesn't belong to the people who take it. Well, I guess.
