I must add here though that itīs legit to do this kind of chop just as long as you donīt mislead people...add a link to the sources so you can see the work done AND give credit to the artist who did the work you borrow,even better asking permission from the author to use it.
Legit but totally wrong for a contest site. On the other hand somehow this site was the coolest community because it's "no rules" nature gets people closer with friendly votes and priority given to learning and hang out.
EEEEEEEHHHHHHH, please remember the pooper scooper dog that came up in a contest years ago? Remember how we loved that? Today, there was an image of a sign somewhere on facebook, using that pooper scooping dog, saying when dogs can do that... etc. And the comments were about psc and remembering that one, till somebody reminded us that the dog with the poop scoop was in fact somebody elses creation, outside this competition channel.
So, when using stuff that other artists have created, ask the artist's permition, as per the rules here. And mention in a link where you found the stuff you used. When you at least make a mention of the fact that you used material you did not create yourself, you give credit to the artists who did the hard graft.
