Okay if there's one piece of work that I've ever made in my entire life of drawing that I regret more than anything, it would be those fucking pony hearts.
Literally every single day (since the day I made them) I get 1-10 notes or comments about someone stealing, tracing, recolouring, selling my work here or somewhere else. So naturally, I fucking hate those things. I probably would've done them a lot more if I didn't have to deal with art theft twenty times a day.

To those of you who have been informing me of these thefts from time to time, I really appreciate it as always. Without people like you I wouldn't even be able to track down, or even KNOW about the people stealing them. So really, you have my deepest thanks and gratitude.

NOW to get things straight. I'm tired of going through these art theft pictures and reading comments about how, "He gave me permission to make it a base" or "He doesn't care". WRONG, I do care and will report you without hesitation if I see it.

To make this clear YET AGAIN:

IF YOU USE OR MAKE PONY HEARTS READ THIS DAMN THING



You can make your own pony heart.
YOU MAY NOT TAKE, TRACE, RECOLOUR, OR ALTER ANY OF MINE

NO, I do not have a base for you to use. I know there's one out there with a pony heart body base and that's fine. JUST DRAW YOUR OWN MANE AND TAIL. NOT STEAL MINE.

Give credit where credit is due. Just a simple comment in the description saying, "Pony Heart Concept/Idea by :iconbamboodog:"

In fact, I'm not going to scold you for missing the crediting. This is more about recolours/tracers.

There is this thing on the internet called bases. People forget to credit these bases, so when pones.like me find.these bases, they can't credit correct for guess what? There is no name! So how the.hell we know this was this person's? hm? So how is it stealing wheb we weren't aware and the.bases were Not credited

That is why people shouldn't make bases of other people's work without asking. 
Secondly, bases most of the time come from actual artwork. Meaning there's an original. I don't think it would take much time to search for the original pony hearts of the mane six. If you can waste time searching for random stuff on the internet, you can also do research. 
Thirdly, because an artist makes an announcement that they don't want their artwork misused you should respect it. Not complain and throw a fit.

And lastly since you decided to be a bit rude about how I handle situations about MY work here and in your description on your adoptables, you can either remove the image yourself or it will be reported.

Hey, I credited you. I don't know how to like mention you I'm kinda new to deviantart. As for yesterday, I decided the wrong time to look at deviantart, and got all angry over.one little thing, cuz bad day and all. And My apologies also. Stupidly, I assumed because the base was on the internet, and was all "ITS FREE" and all that crap, that it was okay to use. As for researching into stuff a bit more, I haven't the time anymore, sadly. Notice, I haven't posted anything for a while. With advanced courses and highschool, i don't even dont have the time to even create artwork. And at that time, I was unaware of this whole credit thing. So yea. And srsly dude, if I credited(need taught how to actually mention ye) you, which i have the link until i learn how to mention acting as crediting, and you have allowed others to keep their artwork up when they credited, you can't just be all like only this one person cant use this base because I don't like.their atittude when they have a bad day.Because its credited. Good day to you, sir! (Btw if there are random "." in my sentence, its this darn keyboard. So tiny?

You are not the only person to have been reported, an large amount of people have. There's a reason I made this journal. I have no issue with the people who actually take the time to make their own. 
And like stated in the journal the main issue is my work being stolen, altered, traced, recoloured, etc. Just putting a credit doesn't mean misusing the work is okay. 

Have a nice day.

Well, lol, when I took one.looke at the.journal and was like...I cannot read all this holy words! And with the base thingy, I had to edit the mane and stuff it was quite annoying. So its not 100% a recolor it just like idk. I just took a base and was like this and this needs changed. And like, I didn't appreciate that person being all like "you stole artwork" on my profile and like yea. Because I was unaware of all this until that point, and with me having trouble getting eveb 10 watchers, if people read that they'd be all like "ooh she is just some pone who cant do artustry" when I can, butuse bases to make it easier and less time consuming, I wasn't too happy. Cause like Iwant to gain watchers and not lose em for a misunderstanding xD And until i learn how to mention you, I took the artwork down, until I can properly credit you ^_^
