The og artist for the reposted nsfw chocobros is actually Maorenc and he's got a insta- kudos to my friend for finding him cause we were all trying to find the artist in our chat cause I can't with people that repost without crediting
Like… artists really need the cash to continue gifting us with their talent. And if you want the good stuff, ya gotta pay for it just like anyone else. I know the fandom can be thirsty asf (and boy those were some nice pictures ITELLYAWHUT), but it doesn’t justify stealing the art to sate it. I wish more people thought of that before uploading someone’s exclusive art.
In some ways I know to a certain extent that artists expect this kind of thing to happen, but I don’t wanna inadvertently perpetuate that with a reblog. It doesn’t erase the fact that someone still has it uploaded but I can do my part to not be that kind of problematic.
I’ll just be other kinds of problematic instead. Like writing trash fics and openly thirsting over a variety of fictional characters, LOL
