One thing I really don't like is seeing others running around with a character that looks almost EXACTLY like one of my own.
I really don't like that because I consider it identity theft in a way and I put a lot of time and effort into creating my characters, so why should you run around with a stolen copy of my own? It's extremely LAZY and douchey. It's. Not. That. Hard. To come up with your own!
Now, I don't mind it if people created dachshund characters. Obviously dachshunds are not my creation. Nor do I mind it if you add emo-styled hair on it like Alex's or a mohawk like Lorenz. As long as it doesn't look like a clone of my character, then I will be happy. Just don't make it TOO SIMILAR to mine!
Here's a character recently that has been brought to my attention:[link]
See how similar it looks? Please don't do what that person did! Come up with your own ideas! Don't base your characters entirely around mine!
I thought I would address this issue as it has happened a few times.
If you see someone copying/ripping off my characters, kindly let me know in a NOTE please, do not go and harass/flame/troll/attack the person, just kindly let them know.
If you are worried your character looks similar to mine, bring it up with me, I'll check it out. Most likely it won't, this kind of thing rarely happens. ^^ Journal & Coding- =iHeadsetShiba
