Let me actually speak on this for a second. Hartman is getting clowned on for stealing. Plagiarizing someone else's hardwork and selling as his own.

Referencing is good! using 3D models is fine! Tracing as learning tool or tracing images you own is just fine!

He's a professional, industry artist. He has been charging $200 a pop for commissions of traced and plagiarized work. No credit to the original artists, nothing. He just passes it off as his own.

There's nothing wrong with references, if you're doubting yourself here.
I ACTUALLY RECOMMEND using things like 3D models to make your life easier. You are not "cheating". Please do not worry. Don't make your life harder for no reason.
I will sing the praises of using references to high heaven!! They are so useful!!!!

But Butch didn't use a "reference". He straight up copied someone else's art as said "I made this, pay me"
If you want to support an artist who doesn't plagiarize, consider donating to my ko-fi or becoming a patron for benefits!!
