Are traced bases art theft?

I've heard that it is if you don't have permission to use the original picture.
But I see them EVERYWHERE, And DeviantART even has a section for traced bases!
It's so hard because I've been looking for bases that aren't traced but look like it's from the actual show, but they are all traced and I don't wanna get yelled at.

Bases are free to use. That is why people make them. But, They do not count as your art and you can not claim it to be yours. You have to say that you used a base, or its art theft
