Ryan why do you have images that are obviously not made by you on your website? Someone made them and put their work into making them, the least you could do is put the names of the people who drew and created them.

Here are examples of stolen images:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/picsanime386.html
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/characterpics.html
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/picturesgs.html

I don't see any place where you said where they were taken from, and there is a reason for having credits at the end of the shows, games, movies, and other related materials. I also bet that it is easy to find out who made them over the internet by contacting nintendo.

OMG. LOL! ^^''

Okay, first of all, in that link, they are talking about Japanese fanart. :rolleyes: It's not official art. They are just people who draw doujinshi. I look at random Japanese sites with anime fanart everyday, so trust me, I know what I'm talking about.

Here are four examples:

I would post a link to this artist's site, but it's not really appropriate for kids... =p


And second, do you expect Ryan to draw the Pokemon images by himself? Some of those images are just screen shots from the anime, and as long as Ryan was the one who took the screencaps, he can use them for his site. The rest of it is the official artwork by Nintendo. Fan sites always use those. There is nothing wrong with it, okay? =/


EDIT: Oh, and also, Ryan, I just noticed... in your "Character Pictures" gallery, on the header of Gary's screencaps it says "-Ash Pictures-"... Just so you know. :sweat:

Ryan has not stolen anything. Upon going to the pages you listed, I found that the Character pictures are animé screenshots. Anyone who looks at the m can see that; there's no question as to who drew them. He never said he drew them...it's understood. And on the "picsanime386" page, there is Nintendo art. It's drawn by professional Nintendo artists, and again, there is no question about whether or not it's Nintendo art. He never said it was or wasn't his; he doesn't have to.

Ryan isn't like Serebii...he's not a theif.

Oh I know it's all nintendo's art, but I mean it's just I'm used to seeing everything having some kind of credit given to who made them, and I know there are credits at the end of the show so I know they would want you to know who drew them. I just didn't want anyone getting in trouble... that's all. Plus I was bored and wanted to see if I could scare anyone with it... illeagal or not. :wink:

Pokemon is a property of Nintendo, unless Nintendo wants me to remove their stuff, I don't think there's a problem here. I don't think Nintendo minds, since I'm promoting their product, lol :rolleyes: .

Of course, I do respect fan art. If I mistakenly used someone's work and they want their work displayed on my website, I will remove it, and I have once before. To the best of my knowledge, those are not fan art, espicially the Character Pictures, they're taken from the show. And the Anime Pictures are official.

I don't claim the pictures as mine at my website, in fact, anyone can freely use the images from the website.

:doh: Thanks, I fixed it! :wink:
