Dont make bases of my work by YourOwnArt Dont make bases of my work by YourOwnArt
  A lot of people make bases out of popular drawings here. That put a silly little "rule list" in all of them they always demand credit and permittion from them. They also add the obligatory "link to the original" ..wich is a link to their own photobucket/imageuploader accounts, intead of the owner who is on deviantart .

Its very clever. (sarcasm)
They real owner never finds out. Reports turn out to be invalid since "a link to the original in their photobucket accounts was added". Other members, that had no idea the base they used was not authorized by the owner, get accused of art thief. And all credit goes to the base maker for making a good work available for others to trace/copy.

Back to the subject -
I think its important for base makers to ask or at least inform the authors, that they plan to use their works. I just saw a case where a fellow artist found out people were making ugly reproductions of a valentine gift she made.. thanks to a girl who made a base out of her drawing without even asking and gave free permittion to others to do "their own versions" .  not cool

Ive seen a lot of base makers intentionally not add the real author or the link to the original work (used for the base) in the comments, so they could still keep the base up and claim all the credit for it.
This stamp was born thanks to a base maker who said, when asked if the author gave permittion for her work to be turned into a free base:
"..the owner didnt say i couldnt do a base of his/her work.. so i did "
So there you go.

edit:  the comments hidden below are of two random people having an argument . i have no idea who they are so their comments are hidden to prevent people jump in

How To Use Bases


Do:
- Make bases out of something like official art from a fandom (Disney, Universal, Ginga, etc)
- Make bases out of art if the artist says it's ok


Do NOT:
- Make bases out of art that you don't have permission to
- Make bases out of art if the artist says it's NOT ok

So, what you're trying say, generally, is that people shouldnt copy other people's artwork. Finally, something that makes sense even to me

I personally make many bases from people's artworks but I always make sure that I ask first. It's the most infuriating thing to see somebody take others art without permission and then take credit for a base they made out of it. =_='

It gives base makers like me a really bad name...

You highlight the "thumbnail" which can be found in the bottom right corner at the end of this deviation. If you are confused I'm sure I can find a YouTube tutorial for you online. ^_^

You're welcome. Btw, another thing I hate about base makers. Some of them say that they "credit" the original artist but, when they upload the base they don't give the original links to the original artist from here or another website. For example, I found one lady who was doing someone else's artwork but, instead of doing the right thing that dA ask she decided to send me a link to her screenshot of a conversation that she had from the original artist explaining she got the "permission" to do so. I still call BS on that. But, that's on them. >_>;

People wouldn't want to make bases out of the cruddy stuff I draw. I seriously don't think people like my drawing style. If you want to see some things I've drawn, here:

The Doll Boy: jemania.deviantart.com/art/the…
Sam, The Morpher: jemania.deviantart.com/art/Sam…
Doctor Who Fandom: jemania.deviantart.com/art/Doc…

That's what I've done. I don't think people like this stuff. The first two people are strait out of my mind. Yes, I made them. The third thing is property of Fandomstuck. I have 151 characters so far. The Doll Boy and Sam are just two of them. Sorry if you don't like them and I just spamed this thing with cruddy artwork.

All pictures that I turned into bases oftenly are Official art and some popular fanart.
I always found them on google or sometimes random sceerenshoots on FB.
So.. I always dunno who's the original creator.
And I have my own reason why I did put the rules and order Base-users to link back to my devinatioin.

1. I will take all the responsibility on my own. If the owner founds it, and didn't accept my actions, or probably reported me, I would accept it ^_^ It's my own risk. I'm not scared.

2. To make sure none of my base users didn't do anything stupid with the base. It's not 100% mine, so, I couldn't just leave my duty and ignored what the base-users doing with the base. ( Ex: Screw or maybe blame the original creator like: 'Nah, mine are better' or 'Hey, are you copying my art?' okay that just ridicilous -_-)

3. No Frankledolling... --" Yeah seriously.. once again, the base isn't 100% mine. It's still the creator's art! I'm just sharing for FUN :D

If you don't know who the artist is you should figure that out and ask before making bases:/ If you don't know who made it, don't make a base of it. If you do and the artist gets sad about it it may already have been used without proper credit a hundred times, sometimes even making the ORIGINAL artist look like they're using bases.

So, in another mean:
I'm not allowed to make basses without the artist permmision?

Alot of basses artist decide to ignore that, because doing that will take a time and most artist reject their request rudely --"

I pefer delet my Base and order people that used my base if the owner didn't want it again --"

Is that clear? (Immanonenglishuser)

Sadly this has happened to me before and dA still hasn't removed the "base". It's been well over a year since I've been trying to get it taken down. Thanks, dA. This person took my artwork, altered it and claimed it was a base, free to use. >:U They didn't even bother to trace it and dA hasn't done a damn thing.

What's terrible is that these base makers are convinced into phrasing it as "Base inspired by" to lessen the blow of "I totally only traced it." ....:faint:

I used to love making pixel/sprite work.. so I was okay with some bases.. except then all these anime picture ones came out and I dropped the hobby. Since then, my real artwork improved amazingly. The bases don't help people improve on drawing since it's already completed for them.. because their excuse is that it helps learn to drawn. >_> oh nononono.
