Does it bother you when people repost your art even if they provide credit?
See, drawing frequently doesn’t make the whole process anymore easy for me. I spent 2-3 or even more hours per piece, and during that time, I am constantly faced with questions about whether it’s good enough, whether I’m good enough. Am I just wasting my time? What’s the point of all of this?… But then posting it, seeing people liking/reblogging/commenting on my drawings, it makes it all worth it. It keeps me going.
But then again, seeing people doing the bare minimum of screencaping/saving and then re-uploading them wherever, bombarding my drawings with filters and hashtags, getting the likes/follows/reblogs that THEY DON’T DESERVE, it really annoys me.
“but it’s so pretty i wanna share it” thank you, I appreciate it, but I’d rather do that on my own terms. That’s why i have this blog, that’s the reason I made an instragram account.
“i want my friends to see it” you can tag them on the original post???? it’s not hard? everyones doing it, get with the time.
Oh and yesterday on instagram, someone reposted my drawings and so I commented on their page telling them to stop, and they were like, “why I gave you credit” so I said “What I want to do or not do with my drawings is all up to me” and they were just??? “Why are you so hostile? if you’re gonna be this mean maybe you don’t deserve people reposting your drawings” so naturally, i asked if telling people not to repost my drawings makes me ‘mean’ and ‘hostile’ and they said, “no but telling people not to post your drawings (((so that’s a yes?))) and then attacking me after” so again, I asked when I was attacking them and they either blocked me or deactivated after that……
