Reminds me of that one time a fag with an Alicorn OC won a contest to get Mama Faust to draw his OC but he had to pay 3k.

He didn't pay up and the contest was shut down

People are going to him because his art looks like the show. And that seems to be what they want it to look like.
If people want individual style and creativity they are going to someone else.
What's the problem :?

This is like getting pissed at modern art that is just a canvas painted red.
He thought of something easy, and something people would want.

People need to stop bitching

Selling things that someone else drew without getting their permission is generally considered a problem.

They aren't selling what someone else drew. They are selling a picture they drew using someone else's picture as a guide.

Then there's the fact that Hasbro has a track record of demanding that people who sell any art of their intellectual property on a regular basis at cons or on the internet have to pay for a license to do so. That license is $10,000 on average.

If Drawponies hasn't paid for that right, they're going to be hearing from Hasbro's law firm sometime this week.

The issue isn't that he was tracing so much as he was selling traces of characters.

It's kinda like taking a package of chips-ahoy cookies, pouring them onto a tray and trying to sell them at a bake sale.

They're good cookies, but they're not yours.

I don't know what the laws are for selling original creations based on other people's intellectual property, but fandoms aren't liable to respect that anyhow. With tracing, however, it's not just that you can't claim the characters you're drawing. You can't even claim the goddamn drawing. At best you can claim to have 'remixed' it by putting rearranging copies.

If apathy could be harnessed as a power source The world's energy crisis would be solved.

Hah, what a loser. It always pays to not cut corners.

He just copied the chips-ahoy recipe. Still baked them himself.

Why cut corners when you can cut foreskins?

This is a lot of anger for something that I don't understand why people are upset about in the first place.

show-clones are boring anyway
if he declared they were traces and charged less I'd be less opposed
