My drawing technique - especially when drawing humans - is minor tracing, but only the poses, that's my limit! So I too, do some minor borrowing. However, I've listened to people, including expert drawers, who have told the truth that it's not the technique what's wrong, it's how it's used!
You admitted that you borrowed this picture and claim no credit from it, and told who's its real drawer, so you haven't really done anything wrong!
I use other drawings for help to draw poses as well, but I wouldn't copy the character itself, I also usually change some minor things body parts to be smaller/bigger xD I think the technique is used slightly wrong as well, since many people basically just copy everything >.>
Yea, I need to edit all the other renders to specify that I've not drawn them, but today I'm too lazy xD
I haven't stolen this, I did never, at any point say that it was my own work, ever, the fact that it says render, usually makes people understand that I've simply taken a random picture from somewhere, taken away the background, so that other people can use it to make awesome signatures and avatars, I've realized that a lot of people don't understand this, and in the future I'll try to include a link to the original image, but it's kinda hard to link the source when you saved the picture to your comp like a year ago lol.
Also, thank's a bunch for being extremely rude and calling me a freak for no reason, when you have no idea what youre actually talking about. Cus the rendering itself is by me, so I haven't stolen a render and given myself credit for someone else's RENDERING work, but yea, I didn't draw the character.
And since you knew I hadn't drawn the picture, which is rather obvious if you ask me, could you maybe be kind for once and give me the source so that I can link it?
