The Shyguy Kingdom does not own the sprites contained on the pages within this site. The sprites on this site are the works of countless others whose names would be too many to mention and, in the case of the sprites from games, are often unknown. The Shyguy Kingdom presents these sprites as an archive and gallery of game and pixel art and to promote these games, just as game websites present screenshots to do the same. At the request of any artist or company responsible for any of the artwork in the The Shyguy Kingdom's pages, the sprites of that artist or company will be immediately removed.
However, in regards to the sprite sheets in the pages of The Shyguy Kingdom, there are also features which extend beyond the properties of their respective artists: the layout, the organization, and additional data contained within the sprite sheets that is the intellectual property of The Shyguy Kingdom excludes the publishing of these images without the permission of The Shyguy Kingdom without exhibited modification. This is not due to any attempted ownership of artwork that are not the property of The Shyguy Kingdom, but rather of the data other than the artwork in the sheets.
The Shyguy Kingdom believes that the artwork of games is meant to be seen and that its use and display on this site ultimately benefit the artists and companies behind them through the created fandom and publicity. The Shyguy Kingdom exists to promote pixel-based sprite artwork in its varied forms and the great forces behind them.
