 "art theft from a beginner unknown artist" is what I chose because not only is a noob stealing your art, but they also are doing it without you knowing... secretly stealing for who knows how long

so i thought you were reffering to people who steal so i was like "uhm i think someone popular stealing people's art would be terrible" but then i realized,,, i think stealing from an experienced unknown artist because no one's gonna notice and that's super fucked up,,,

beginner unknown artist because they have so much potential to practice art and impress others yet instead they waste their time stealing as if it'll benefit the beginner

it's the worst when they're stealing from small accounts cause they can't really do much about it whereas with popular accounts they have a better chance at stopping the art theft

I know you mentioned that all of them are bad, but that's a really hard choice considering art theft is wrong no matter who they're stealing from.

honestly, for me, art theft from an experienced, popular artist, is like betrayal

Tbh the "stealing from an unknown experienced artist" is so goddamn terrible. As you said in Caramel-Delight's reply, they won't have people who will stand for them and point the thief with the finger. Probably that dumb creature will benefit and have much more fame than the artist and then accuse them of stealing, even if they were innocent. Of course, they can prove wrong and show them the .sai file or something like that... But all of the options from above are terrible and art theft should have an awful punishment :/

I had a friend that did that in the past for attention, mostly the influence of parents that always told her "to be the best no matter what".
She stole from various artists, even the speedpaints that they did on their channel / made the "drawing" on the computer's screen, modify it a bit and claimed it as her own. But because she was so bad at it, I was always catching her, showing the original art. Eventually some of my friends "scolded" and reported her and she never did that since. Well, at least I hope so.

tbh a really experienced popular artist bc it's so unlikely that they're going to go ahead and steal another popular artist's work so they'll most likely find a smaller artist and steal their artwork and there is a huge chance that they'll get away with it 

but stealing artwork altogether is downright wrong and i don't even get how people can even do it???
their reputation is going to be ruined plus they won't really make any progress from stealing

their all really terrible?? but like tbh art theft from an experienced unknown artist really is fucked up??
i mean honestly i saw the guy who tried to steal your art the other day (and i saw he got banned so he's not a problem anymore) but i dont understand why people do it all the time? yea most of the time for attention and to try to get away with it but its illegal?? like you can get involved with the law if it gets the serious.

Because there will be literally noone who will find out that this persons art gets stolen

exactly?? and its sad bc then they wont have a chance to express their art anymore??
1. people wont know who stole what because they didnt know who was the first artist in the beginning, hence why its bad to have the artist be unknown to alot of people
2. people will harass both sides, not knowing who's the actual artist, and that causes problems.
