Hi yall! This is probably my first time making a thread here on art, but I thought, hey, why not see what people think?

I know recolors are generally frowned upon, but sometimes you just gotta have a pic of your oc and you don't have the time to wait for an artist, or sometimes all the artists are too busy. So, whenever I do recolor something, I try very hard to make it at least a little different than whatever pony I am using a recolor of. I of course would never claim to have created another persons artwork, but I do from time to time use some of their pictures in my recolors and gimp images. I try to give credit to the original artist if anyone ever asks, but that's not very often.

Anyways, on with the show! I'm just going to dump some of the pictures I have done in the past, and some I will be working on soon. I do accept critique if it is helpful and productive. Please don't be rude, mean, or give me shit. I will be polite and curtious to you if you treat me in the same manner.

Here's a recent picture I just finished about half an hour ago. I like using recolors of Vynil because she is the closest color scheme to my oc, and she's a unicorn! Which makes it so much easier to create this pics.

This one was originally a picture of Trixie. Kudos to the original artist, it was absolutely beautiful when I found it on google!

This one gave me some trouble, as it was a little difficult to get all the colors erased and changed in the right way. I unfortunately had to go back on google and find it, because I lost my old computer, so this is not the original copy I did.

Here's just a very basic recolor I did, another Scratch one.

This is the next one I'm going to work on for Ella (my oc).

I know recolors aren't much to be impressed with, but I just thought I'd see what people thought.

And here's the results. Not the best job, but I was in a bit of a hurry.

This is my OC Bliss, if you could do the V. Scratch recolor for her that'd be amazing

Like, really?

It's not like looking on google+dA for a minute is hard...
You should include the source if you have it and it's not too much of a bother

Sorry hun, I'm not excepting requests right now. If I get some time, I might try my hand at it, but I've been pretty busy lately.
Look, I'm sorry if what I do offends you, but there's no reason for you to talk like that. If you think what I'm doing is wrong, then tell me, don't make me feel like an idiot please.

I personally never thought to include the source. And on top of that it's a little annoying to go out of my way to look up the source on every picture for every post I do, especially when I know there are tons of other people on this sight that do the exact same thing that I do. If you really think it's such a bother, then maybe you should try to get the rules changed so recolors aren't allowed.

I'm not trying to argue with you, but that did offend me a little, especially when I know that artists can lock there pictures online so other people can't use them.

I'm sorry, you probably hate recolors, huh?

I honestly don't even like them myself, but it's just so dam HARD to get pictures if you can't draw yourself. And there's only three ponymakers that I know of, which they all kind of suck.
>> No. 120551
I came to really really really really really really dislike them, yes.

That 'excuse' is imo not a valid one
>> No. 120553
Well, I can understand why, certainly. So I'll simply wish you a good rest of the evening.

A real way of actually "locking" pictures does not exist

You could just copy it with the image you're creating on top of which.
Think of it that way, if not THAT artist, there's no your piece of the cake
Just include the sources, that's all I ask for, unless it's your own work
It doesn't bother me that much, it's just a matter of respect for the author, which you aren't until you're done with your thing.
And I do think that recolors should be not allowed, and if, they should have permissions in a form of an online signature or something, it annoys the fuck out of me
And sorry that you feel offended, I didn't intend that.

I like the idea, but the idea of the internet, poni 'n'stuff is about sharing so recolors are not banned, I can live with that.
