I'm just fed up with this community.
About 7 out of 10 comments or notes I get are about "your character looks like mine" "your character has similar colors to mine"
I'm just annoyed. Grow up everyone.
You CAN'T copyright color palettes, you CAN'T copyright certain markings, and certainly you CAN'T copyright a generic design.
This community is way too dramatic and young for me, and I can't take it anymore. Not because I'm sad, but it's because its annoying.
I've had amazing times here, but dA's glory period has come to an end. This community is really toxic, and not only me, but most of the artists I interacted with have moved out from this site.
I thought about this over and over, but all the comments about the characters or my prices being too expensive just fed me up. I haven't had this trouble in any site appart from here. Really, think about it twice if someone really wanted to "copy" your character. I could find 100 more with the same colors or similar markings, and that is okay because many people think the same. TBH if it was the exact same design then you could complain, but if it just has the same color or really common markings then you shouldn't bug at all.
To all of the ones who were by my all my time here, I love you very much <3

With all that said, I wish you all a nice day. I might appear sometimes posting art, but I will be no longer active on here.
Lots of love, Michu.
