In the majority of roleplaying groups advertised on FAF, especially Discord servers, there are a lot of people who steal characters/art to use as their own in RP. I am talking about people who's roleplay character is based off an image of anthro art they found on FA or google images. I know some people don't know how to draw and can't afford to commission people. And that because a lot of people do this I guess people just think it's acceptable. But it's still art theft. (and no saying "art isn't mine" doesn't mean it's okay for you to use it.) It's one thing if you type, say, "furry snow leopard" into google images and roleplay as a generic snow leopard character.(But that still doesn't make it any better) But I keep seeing a lot of people using very unique designs, like someone's personalized fursona. In fact someone in a server I was in was using a paid commissioned picture of someone else's fursona. In my opinion, that's worse. Because someone who might be using a generic species as a picture probably isn't copying the character 100%, the person who tries to use a unique design IS. And if it's been paid for, that's worse. That character is obviously very adored by it's owner, and the owner has spent money on it. You can't just use what isn't yours. So please, do not use others art or characters. If you really need a RP pic, learn to draw yourself or look around on the forums here, there are actually quite a few people who offer free art sometimes. And if you can't come up with an original concept of a character yourself, there are plenty of random generators (just type "fursona generator" into google) or you can possibly find someone to create one for you too. Using art and characters without permission is very disrespectful to artists, and it is stealing.
