Just a question. What is this site's stance on people tracing screenshots from the show and claiming the art as their own? I sometimes see people who replicate images but nothing is being done about it apparently.

It's very similar to vectors of screencaps. If people are working from references of the show, that's fine — their creations are considered transformative copyrights, so they are unique and stand on their own.

If someone does the same from a fanart, we treat it as a trace, and it is treated as a derivative copyright.

The example that you gave is fine — if people are referencing from the show, whether they're using a traditional media, digital pixel art, creating 3D art, vectoring, whatever, if the source is from the show it's fine.

Where this sometimes becomes a problem is that we periodically run into two artists who referenced the same screencap, and folks misinterpret it as one artist tracing another artist.
