wonder when do we ever see a original character from you and -not- a copyrighted character.
Said here, i REALLY wonder if someone "would" delete all the copyrighted characters from your gallery, how much of it will be left after that.
THIS should a point to think about "changing" something and not just build your whole artwork on other peoples creations AND advertising your patreon with said characters which are 100% not yours.
edit for the "voters" there:
there is no reason to feel "mad" about my comment. Think about it that way: you create something on your own and someone somewhere "just takes it" and "uses it" to make money with it -without- your permission. How do you think that feels? So and now, lets talk about copyrights and this artists gallery again...
Edit coz of the answer:
"I draw original characters all the time. Designed three this week alone, and seven last month."
Where? On newgrounds there is nothing from those to see, at least not from "this week". And you created "whole" 7 last month? Wow, should i go now over the gallery of yours again and make an comparison and contrast of how many copyrighted charaters ONE of those "original characters" comes? TO many i can tell you.
I mean, i had time to just DO it for so people recognise on what you "build" your art...
