bit worried about posting original art

[shaky off-tune kazoo version of the jaws theme playing in the distance]

Hello, everyone.

First of all, I’m so incredibly sorry for just vanishing for more than half a year, especially because I realized my last post was about a hospital stay (which I did mention was harmless, but probably still looks pretty ominous as a last post.)
I feel terrible for making people worry, especially since there’s already enough upsetting stuff happening :c 

To be honest I’m a little nervous writing this post right now after being gone for so long, but I really wanted to give a life sign! This weekend I finally checked my inbox, and I was incredibly touched by all the sweet messages. I can’t get back to everyone so let me just thank all of you who sent messages or replies, or even just thought about me! I cannot put into words how much it means to me ;-; It made my heart hurt in a good way, and I hope good things happen to you!

[1/3] This may be really long and for that I'm extremely sorry! So I do pencil drawings and use markers, paints, etc. for the art that I do. And I want to post some of it on here. The thing is, it's not my art. I use other artists' work for my own PERSONAL practice (to get comfortable with drawing, find my own unique art style, challenge myself, etc. but I never post it publicly. I sometimes post on my PRIVATE ig account but never for money and I never claim to own the drawing.

[2/3] Yet some of my drawings are from official artwork. I’ve seen people redraw some official art and post it, or take a screenshot of the anime and draw that picture, but I don’t know for sure if you can do that. I’d like to know the boundaries of what I can and cannot post. And if I can post it, how do I show credit? I’m pretty sure that I cant post a redrawing of fan art, but what about official art? Is it the same thing? And also how could I convert from paper drawings to tablet drawings?

[3/3] LASTLY, sorry if that was hard to understand. I’m kinda just putting down questions as I think of them. But thank you so much in advance!! I really do appreciate this.

Hello! Don’t worry about your message being long, I’m always intrigued by those.

I can’t really speak for every artist out there, because it’s different for everyone. Some really dislike when people re-draw their art, some are neutral towards this. So, I’m going to speak for myself.

I never mind people re-drawing my art, personally. I don’t mind people posting their drawings whether a bit based on mine, or re-drawn completely. BUT I always say that if people choose to post, they have to credit the original artist. The majority or people who don’t mind it like me prefer it with credit as well.

As for official art, I think it’s less.. tricky? in a way. Like it’s already official, and nothing is going to change it, BUT, official art is still drawn by someone, and that someone has to be credited if you choose to post a re-draw.

Either you post it with a name and a link (if it’s possible) to original artist, or you post the link to the original artwork. But always try to search for the name…. I know a lot of pictures are lost in google uncredited, but image search can help with that sometimes, so! Always try to find an original source.


I’m not entirely sure what you mean by converting to digital your traditional drawings. You mean finishing them on tablet after sketching on paper? The better way is to scan and then do whatever you want using a drawing program like photoshop or sai or open canvas, there are a bunch of them. You can take a photo too but the quality is worse usually….Mmmm if you choose to draw on it digitally, make new layers, don’t draw on that photo/scan.

Hope it helps!~

finally i’m finished! i’d like to say i planned putting this out on ATLA’s 10 yr anniversary but that would be a lie lol anyways, this took me way longer than it really should have (blame that on extreme laziness) but i finally sat down and spent time on it. this is a lyric fanart of korrasami with a bit of focus on asami (especially towards the end).  

the cover song i chose runs longer than what i drew so don’t worry about there being missing pages or anything like that (if its something that will bother you here is the original song which will end at the same moment the post will)

there is a little bit of angst~ and if kids aren’t your thing then you can prob peace out after the three “yeah"s in the middle and it wouldnt be that big of a deal.

lets get this started, hope you enjoy it!!
