EDiT : Also, make sure to check out :artist:, an updated, thiefless version of this emoticon!

Nobody likes an art-thief...but this little guy's just too cute not to love.
i think most every artist has stolen at least one piece of art. if not a trace, then at least heavy inspiration. Whether recent or back in the stick-figure phase, everybody's done it somewhere along the line.

Tagged : Yes
Frames Drawn : 101
Frames Animated : 124
Time Elapsed : 45 sec.
Time Created : Approx. 3 hr.
Animation Program : GiF Construction Set Professional (freeware)

EDiT : i've also fixed the 'flash' of white in several (3) frames. i guess i forgot to make them transperant when i added them to the animation late. However, because of DA's popular glitches, the image may still 'flash'. if it does, just refresh and the newest revision should load.

...and yes, i realize there's about 8 pixels of res never used. if somebody can fix this for me, please let me know. i'm too lazy to re-size and re-compose the whole animation.

gif apparently good look at it as it is the way you do your own work of art and someone else steals it by becoming their own...

LOL, I love their expressions xDDD You made it look so funny and dramatic at the same time. This short emoticon animation tells a great story -- it's something like mini-comedy :D

This is how I feel about art thieves. They see your work, appreciate it, then next thing you know, they smack upside the head with it and pass it off as their own. This is funny as well, despite it being old.
