Always a great day to wake up and smell the art theft in the morning. Especially when you find yourself accused of being the thief.
Guys, there is nothing to be gained from stealing art either by tracing, manipulating, or just straight up reuploading and pretending its yours. These things will not help you improve as an artist, moreover it's wrong and frequently pisses a lot of people off so unless you're trying for the sort of notoriety that everyone yelling at you and putting you on long lists of people stealing crap, stop it. Stop it, okay? It sucks, it hurts ALL PARTIES INVOLVED, it's selfish and mean-spirited and is spitting in the face of the artist.
