I dunno, I could tell they’re still starting out. I admit, back in the days, I used to find art online and trace over them. It really does train your hand with line drawing and such, but back then I never posted art online. I think about it today from both perspectives. As the artist, I’d like to be given the credit, and I’m also glad to inspire someone in some way to draw. If I look at it the other way, I’d be embarrassed and a little devastated to find out an artist that I look up to is angry with me.
Obviously, if they don’t listen, then you’ve got to lay down the hammer.
