I'm not getting into the argument, I just want to
point out that of people who request cels, less
than five percent want anything 'original'
(original characters, original poses, etc). I'd
be *VERY* happy if more people wanted original
stuff. No one was even interested in non-
screencap images until I started doing some on my
own, for myself and a couple of friends.
So either a) most people have no imagination
b) people don't trust me to draw worth a damn
c) people are stuck wanting a cel from a
particular scene they can't find/afford and
aren't interested in anything else.
Knowing that, I can't really blame people for
making screencap cels instead of original stuff
to make a fast buck, because I've seen some
gorgeous original stuff go for less than a cheap
copy of a dragonball cel. It sucks.
As for Misha's comment about CLAMP not wanting
people to use their artwork in any way on their
website... I actually only knew about them not
wanting their pictures posted online (which is
why I don't put comparison pictures in my
gallery). I've been trying to download a
japanese language set on my computer for over a
year, but it won't take it so when O went there,
I just saw random %^$@ characters and such.
