I honestly wish I can get my characters and work copyrighted. It’s honestly hard being an artist sometimes because you would have to worry that one day someone is going to take your work and use it for their own profit.  It’s something that I take very seriously because I would experience times, where my artwork was stolen. However, that’s why it is wise for illustrators and creators alike that really want to go into this kind of profession will have to go and get their work copyrighted in order for them to have their work protected under law.
