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.

I'm sorry, I used a base that had the hair and I didn't know about this until a short while ago. Anyway, I made 3 point adoptables and I'm going to take them down. I know that the base maker's account was deactivated so I can't report them. I'm sorry if I offended you in anyway by basically recoloring your art but I had no idea.

Would it be okay if I made like Pony Pillow plush things for me and my friends?

:omg: i'm sorry i for one just saw a BUNCH of people using them so i decided to do it and no i didn't trace your work most definitely i did not! And wow I can't believe I 4got to give credit to u I'm gonna do that as soon as i'm done with this! I didn't think that you'd make such a big deal (no offense) i mean seriously when people use someone else's idea that means they like the idea! So you shouldn't make such a big deal. Ik Ik u came up with it and people should ask b4 they use it but sometimes you just can't help yourself cause sometimes that drawing,painting,sculpture or whatever is just too AWESOME! i mean sometimes you shouldn't get mad enough that someone liked or loved that idea that you report them! (i just saw this after i posted some heart ponies i'm soo sorry! I didn't know how much u didn't like other people using them) (i'm not trying to make u feel bad or make u mad i'm just showing you my point of view!:)) I mean like if somebody uses ur idea u could just say ''hi can u stop using the pony hearts please" and then watch them to make sure that they don't! Ok I think i'm done~kali

This is probably the oldest question about your pony hearts you could get off of this jornal but I am curious about something. 

Are you okay with people using the pony hearts body base for a profit off points or real time currency if the mane and tail are different?
