Howdy, TNT! *offers a barrel of mini pies* Listen, I have a serious question. Some members of the art chat have noticed more than one occasion of users tracing official Neopets art and being accepted into the Art Gallery. In the rules it states that site art is not allowed and submissions must be 100% your own. There's been a lot of debate and confusion over whether traced site art should be considered "100% your own". If possible, could this be made clear in the Art Gallery rules? If replicating site art IS allowed, then I think it would clear up a lot of confusion if this were explicitly stated in the Art Gallery rules! Thank you!! ~
Hi, Hopefully this will help. Outright tracing official art is not allowed, please report if you see any and it wine removed (in fact someone did reported one today and it was immediately removed. Please include a link to the official art as well. Now, thecondysing part, using official art as reference material is fine, but you are right the image has to be 100% you. So even if using it as reference please make sure differences are clear soon onecsn say it was traced.
So in summary, replicating official art in your own style is fine, tracing is not.
Also, if any has not been removed (only one image has been reported) please make sure to report so kikocat can get it removed!! Thanks!!
