Edit: Plz, dont misunderstand what I meant, I'm not saying to those who are inspired by someone else's style to stop drawing like them, I'm not God or have the right to ask it, the main point is ppl who do it "exactly" like another artist's style, and those who don't admit it! Read carefully

So,
Once in a while I get comments and notes about ppl "copying" my style or if I know someone who has a style similar to mine, this kind of remember me that shit about my chibi style long time ago...
That's a very... delicate situation...
Some of my friends get rlly mad that I dont do anything about it... but, actually it doesn't bother me, that much! lol
I really prefer to focus on my works and to get better than paying attention to this :B but it also doesn't mean I'm okay with someone literally copying me...
When I was younger I used to "copy" my favorite artists until find my own style, and that's what I try to think when the ones that are "inspired" by my style do... and I feel very honored!
Of course, I don't care if someone has similarities with my style but I will get a little upset if:
_The person does it exactly like my style;
_The person doesn't admit they are inspired by me when it's pretty clear they do;
I am not asking anyone to say "yes I'm inspired by ntdevont's works thats why it looks so alike and blahblah...", but I don't like when someone says that are similarities and the person just pretends they don't know me or even don't think my style has something related to theirs.... :/
I don't have an original style, my works look like many other artists around DA, but, I really try to make my works to have something "recognizable" for when people see this around internet they say, "that's that dude work...", the way I shade, the way i draw noses, the way I draw eyes, hair, etcetcetc...  and this is sad when that thing you developed to be your own characteristic isn't your own anymore...
So, this is not a rant journal or I'm mad or anything, but, it's just that I constantly get this subject in my conversations with my friends... and I wanted to make it clear and share it with you guys :3
So, just a tip, if you really like someone's style, there's no problem about making yours similar to them, but, just don't do it exactly like their style... You don't know how good is to have your own style and be recognizable by this...  xD

I hope I didnt offend anyone, that wasn't my intention *3*

all i can say is if u find someone that has a style that is exactly like urs because they copied off u or something, try to think of it as both of u own said style cause u both use it. i try to think this way so that i dont have to get mad over thinking someone is stealing something from me but instead we are just sharing it xd. .Also since u sortuv create ur own style by adding something "recognizable" to it has u put it , u can at least take comfort in the fact that u own the fact that u created this style and no one can take that away, even if they use it.

In the end, all this is subjective !(>w>)
Besides, even if someone want to do like you, it will never be at 100%, because it's depending on your way to draw.
And I think people are already able to recognize your style, you know !:iconsothereplz:

seu estilo é bem "reconhecivel" pra mim, tem suas caracteristicas proprias principalmente nas poses dos personagens e a forma como vc faz um interagir com o outro.

eu penso mais ou menos como você, até porque copiar o estilo de alguem que você admira é bem comum, agora quando alguem pega um desenho feito e fala que é dele o assunto ja muda.

ah brigado!
o problema nao e a pessoa se inspirar em vc e desenhar algumas coisas "parecidas" sabe! O foda é alguem literalmente te copiar! Nos minimos detalhes coisas que vc trabalha pra ficar como seu estilo e a pessoa copia, isso me deixa puto!

pode crer, inspiração e cópia são coisas diferentes, eu pelo menos trato de forma diferente.
o chato é que se ve muito disso.. e os artistas com um estilo bonito como o seu sofrem as consequencias =/

"_The person doesn't admit they are inspired by me when it's pretty clear they do;"

I often see those who copy your style and go: eh?! I don't even know NTDevont! D: it pisses the hell out of me coz its frigg'in obvious.. so yeah I'm one of your fans that get upset when I see people like that :3
oh and one more thing.. they may be able to copy your style.. but not your awesomeness! :iconheplz: keep it up me want MOAR art <3

olha, eu sei como é essa história de copiar o estilo de alguém. muito provavelmente essas pessoas estão só numa fase, e logo devem descobrir seus próprios estilos. pelo menos você foi legal e não falou publicamente pra todos os seus watchers "são essas pessoas! oh, me sinto tão atacado e stalkeado, pois estão copiando meus estilo. mas não vão até a página delas pra dar flame *psicologia reversa, ativar*"xD

to be honest, i personally wouldnt care..
I mean, i dont understand it really. Its no exactly COPYING if they are just drawing. what if they just happened to have the same style as someone else?? I mean, your style reminds me of certain animes ive watched, as well as so many other artists ive seen. personally, i think thats a GOOD thing. as long as they arent actually taking your work and COLORING over it you know?? if they really liked your work, and wanted to have your exact style maybe thats a different storyXD
but i think
you, ichan and zoid chan..or soimething, have very simmilar stlyes
but i wouldnt concider it copying.
i think im blabbering but i get your point, but once again, art is art , as long as they arent drawing over your wonderful things i dont think its a huge issue <3

thats not what I meant, I'm not saying to anyone who has a similar style to mine to change it, as i said I don't care and I feel honored rofl
the main point is when someone literally "copies" it even the smallest details and don't admit...

well, a person can learn a lot from mimicking another's style, but its still nice to say you were inspired from this person.
I know I learned a lot from your style :3

yep! I think there's no need to say they're inspired by someone else every time they post something but there's also no need to deny it when someone asks if they are inspired by them... thank you! *w*
