This stamp here has a VERY good point. These days, I see tons of art just taken from the internet, or worse, from another user, andthe stolen one being more popular. Someone even had the nerve to trace over a picture someone worked very hard for me on for our art trade.

The stamp here is true to. If you steal art, you are comitting a crime. So think before you leap.

The vision- It has a very nice look to it. The color scheme fits in very well. 4.5/5

Originality- There are other art theft stamps, but this is probably the best one I've seen. 4.

Technique- This stamp is very well made and put together! 5.

Impact- When ou open this deviation, it put's a really nice impact on you. No one would think this is rushed or put together in minutes. 4.5/5.

Overall, this stamp is great,and true at the same time. Let's all stop art theft together!

Thank you for creating this. I'm going to use this in a group I own on IMVU as they're stealing art left and right, there. We are an anti-theft group.  Many thanks and I'll credit you, too.

Then I need to stop robing the Louvre. I didn't know it was against the law, but know I know.

There are so many stamps about anti art theft but it really can't be said enough.
It's such a disrespect to the original artist who WORKED so hard on the piece, anatomy, lighting, etc. Just for some person to steal it as their own and say"I made this one:dummy:":no:
