Traced Anime Bases Must Die by genkistamps Traced Anime Bases Must Die by genkistamps
Yeah, I know there are stamps on the subject. Bite me.

I fucking hate traced anime bases. Traced bases aren't art or bases, it's art theft, you morons. You aren't artists for tracing over someone else's artwork. You're a hack.

Stop polluting DA with your traced crap and your poorly recolored traced crap.

Freehanding a base is better because you're just using the pose and no one can own a pose.

I feel that when you use bases, it's not your art. I tried it once and I felt as if I wasn't even making my own art

its okay to use bases if your just practicing but if someone uses one and claims it to be their own original content and/or doesnt give credit to the original persons work i consider that stealing. I'm still trying to find my own style of drawing so i tend to use bases as reference. I'm still working on proportions so i cant say that I'm totally good but i know that some day i will be good!!! I support bases but i do not support thieves!

I don't care how crappy my art is, I will never use a base.

But you what's sad ?

Those people will always find good excuses to justify their behavior.

Bases for fun and practice. I use them for that. Stealing may be wrong, but fun? Not wrong.

never used a base, never will- it doesn't teach you anything and it's not your art!

Ok so... I use bases sometimes on my art. Big deal! When ever I do use them I never post them online. I use them for practice. I am a teenager and I need help on drawing. But what I don't do is copy them on ms paint and draw hair and  clothes on them. So bases aren't that bad.  It's people that don't use them right that are bad.
