    To be honest, I’d be amazed if Matpat used my fan art in an episode of Game Theory. I’ve been watching Game Theory since at least “What We Missed!” Episode.

      Can I please slap the guy who thought it would be a good idea to make identical box cover art without a watermark. They deserve a good old slap in the back.

        If MarPat used my art I'd nerd out honestly. As someone who makes twitch banners for the smaller streamers for free, just because I enjoy it, I would live to see some of my art get on a bigger channel. Heck I've had friends take my art and get it tattooed on themselves and the only way i know about it is i see the Facebook posts after the fact.

                Best way to use fanart is to ask and then credit the artist probably... if its intentional use.. if its by mistake because they dont sign it or wattermark it then that is the artists problem... like I make bad art and still sign everything xD

                  To see mat being sad for stuff like this truly hurts my feelings.

                                          Wait, why is it more of a problem to "steal" and use fan-art than "stealing" and using official art? Shouldn't it be more of a problem when you use the actual real official art without permission?

                                            I just want to role my eyes in the back of My skull of that "Kirby Star Allies box art" tweet.

                                            People are such prick this days, how could you tell that from the official, and MatPat is telling a honest mistake. How could People be so pitty this day and age? It seems like they are tweeting about it beacause they seems to hate MatPat instead of actualy caring about the artist. 🙄

                                              I dont make fan art or any kind of art, but I don’t get how people get mad of people accidentally, or crediting the artist, use their art

The problem with Game Theory now is that the episodes feel dumbed down. They don't feel all that interesting anymore and they have bad attempts at humor to appeal to the lowest common denominator. This show is no longer the thought provoking and sometimes hilarious show that my friends and I would enjoy the hell out of back in middle school. Now it's a business to bring in views and money. I don't doubt that MatPat still enjoys this show but it's just not what it used to be, which is a shame. I unsubscribed because frankly I'm just not into this anymore. Feels like Mat is spreading his talents thin by doing so many side projects.

                                                                                                  So I have a story to tell and it does deal with fan art culture and what not.

                                                                                                  Back in 2016 I was a huge fan of Wattpad. A site used for fan-artists to actual artists. I made a story similar to someone’s own work. Yes, still a fan creation but their own spin on it. They reached out to me and asked me to credit them or remake the story. I did credit the original creator of the story and created a new spin of it too.

                                                                                                  So from then on I’ve taken to giving credit no matter what. I don’t want to make the mistake I did in the past. I don’t want the original creator to lash out. I was lucky to have a kind person tell me what I did wrong. I fixed the mistake and learned from it.

                                                                                                  We’re only human, we make mistakes, but kindness goes a long way when it comes to things dealing with fan culture.
