my art's not really anything to boast about and whatnot -but apparently people like IDK- and I've been told it's 'cartoon-y'. 
it's kind of bubbly esque with bold-ish lines and anime-ish coloring -like the kawaii animes not the srz animes- 
it's really generic actually so someone probably has the same art style right now

I took :iconravietta:'s style and modified it, her's is an anime disney, mine's an anime comic, I put her in my inspiration list, I noticed that everyone on :icondevart: learns from eachother, 99% of this entire community draws the female anatomy the exact same way and gets their style from famous artists like :iconartgerm: :iconslugbox: etc. I've seen artists who went to Artgerm's/Slugbox's livestreams and are now replicating their style almost 100% accurately, it's interesting

Well no, not unless it was one of the users who jumps for artist 'style' to 'style' to 'improve' and junk. I would not be happy but I wouldn't rage. You can't really own a style, if someone did it because they really liked my art and the way I rendered things I would be flattered, but I wouldn't make a big deal out of it. Eventually they will move and evolve their own unique style, and I will feel happy to be a part of that. Plus my style is slowly evolving more towards the realistic/semi realistic look I aspire towards, so fro someone to continue to mimic me they would also be forced to improve lol.

I would fucking saw their legs off!
There's just something wrong with copying my style or characters that just makes me feel weird... Is it a phobia? I have no clue...
I just don't like it...
...Plus my art sucks. Who would want to copy it?!

I would be very flattered, but I'd also be disappointed that the person didn't develop their own style. If their drawings looked just like mine it would show originality... Everyone should develop their own style! Seeing people who style is just a copy of someone else's is just sad!

Hrmm, it would be a mix. I would be flattered but feel awkward. Everyone needs to find their own style. I guess I'd mostly be flattered as long as they change it a little to make it more theirs.
