700 Years ago, Dark Mage Artimas Firroth, Priestess Relina Lannalau, and Elementalist Nois Avarret were students of Grand Paladin Duke Arron. Sadly his life was taken in battle. Filled with grief, his students opened a time portal in an attempt to pluck him from his timeline moments before…
It sure amuses me when people rage about having “their” work stolen when it isn’t even theirs to begin with.
Converting images or videos that weren’t made by you to gifs does not make them your property. Recolouring images or sprites that weren’t created by you does not make them your property. Making other half-assed edits to existing art, sprites or videos not made by you does not make them your property.
You are creating edits from Copyrighted work. Therefore, YOU are the thief.
Artists who rage and whine and waaaah at those who steal their work, yet can’t be bothered to put so much as a copyright statement anywhere near their art, are idiots. Watermarks/signatures/copyright statements don’t stop people from stealing, but at least you’re making the even more idiotic and clueless aware that an artwork might actually belong to someone. Not everyone steals to be malicious.
