Trace: http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-723328.html
Original: http://www.boston.com/news/globe/ideas/brainiac/pikachu.gif

Trace: http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-724782.html

I suspect this ( http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-734003.html ) is traced because her other drawing ( http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-732754.html ) differs in quality, and they were only submitted within a few days of each other.

Other suspected traces:

http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-734005.html
http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-735903.html
http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-736224.html
http://www.fanart-central.net/pic-736140.html


And more keeps coming! 90% of her gallery is nothing but traces!

I don't know if I should have made her annoymous but according to purplemoonlight006, she openly admits that she traces.

Yea, she had it in her reference on some of her pictures saying" Oh some picture from the internet I traced"

And you can easily tell they are traced, I mean alot of the sonic ones she has too I swear I seen pictures like that on the internet, I think she uses like Sonic an dShadow pics and Rouge pics.

Where attribution is concerned that's not good enough. Tracing without explicit permission is a clear violation.

Hi. It appears that I am in trouble here. Heh.

Well, if I may please explain?

Yes, I have traced and edited some pictures, but I have atleast SAID I have traced them, and I no longer do it. If the staff wants, I will delete all pictures I have used tracings on. I also hope this won't get me banned.

Thankyou for your time.

If you have specifically been given permission to edit or traceover another artist's picture, we do allow that provided it is fully credited to the original artist, meaning it includes a URL to the original artist and image used. (This allows willing collaborations between artists, such as when one artist submits another lineart allowing other people to do the coloring.)

That being said, the general rule still stands: If you don't have specific permission for editing/tracing, or don't bother to credit it, it's not allowed.

As for whether it's banworthy, that depends.

The pictures I traced where from google, and I'm not sure where the original links came from.

However, I do sincerily apologize for what I've done. I promise I will not do it again, and as for what I said before, I still haven't traced in a long time. Like I said, if you would like, I would delete the pictures I traced without any argument.

Thankyou again for your time.

Alright, I've deleted all the pictures in my gallery I've traced. I assure you that I won't do it again and that I am truly sorry. I should've known better.
