Recoloring Is Not Art -Stamp by AdventureIslands Recoloring Is Not Art -Stamp by AdventureIslands

Listen kids: as much you might like that stupid Naruto picture you found with Google or how cool that Sonic spriteset might look, changing their colors doesn't make them your art nor your original characters.

Turning Sonic's fur red and shoes black with Paint and giving some stupid name like Fire the Hedgehog is not only really lame and unoriginal, but it is not true art or real original character either. Adding stuff like cape or etc. is not going to help. Giving Naruto character different colored clothes and editing hairdo is also a sign of lack of imagination too.

And if you still Instinct to make those cheap edits, then for God's sake, don't post them to deviantArt, this is not Photobucket!

Read the Copyright Policy!…


My first stamp ever. I just got really mad for seeing all these cheap and lame sprite and character edits, and I couldn't find a existing anti-recoloring stamp, I decided to make my own.

Besides seeing stolen art and other Copyright Policy violating material here in dA, seeing unoriginal and cheap recolorings drives me nuts!

Clearly you don't appreciate the art of the genre "(insert name) the hedgehog".

I dislike recolors, they show no creativity and great lack of effort. It's pitiful that I see recolors here, it isn't fair to those to spend a lot of time drawing the art. To recolorers: Draw your own damn art.

Boy if you guys hate recolors...

You all must really hate ponies as much as I do.

I like you guys :P

Not every pony is a recolor dude.

I mean, yeah. The MLP fandom is DEFINITELY bad for recolors but the Sonic fandom sucks just as bad. I used to be involved in both. Well, I'm still involved in the mlp fandom but stray away from intentionally looking for art because most of it is shit.

But not everything is generic. To be honest, every fandom based on cartoons and anime have recolors. Just some more than others.

Just saying. Not trying to burst your bubble or whatever.

I agree that recolors in ANY FANDOM suck. But that doesn't mean I'm just going to magically hate ponies because I see them. I can just dislike them individually. ovo

I say the sonic fandom is worse.
