What do I do if someone tries to steal my art?

Do you mean, what do you do if someone tries to take credit for your art, like if they post it on their page and claims they drew it?  Or do you mean, what do you do if someone reposts/uploads it elsewhere?

If they claimed they drew your picture, report them immediately.  They know what they did and they did it anyway.  (Same goes for tracing, IMO.  Traced art should NOT be posted online; that’s plagiarism)  

For reposting (aka. someone else uploading your art onto a different website such as Instagram) you should first decide what your reposting policy will be.  

  • Some artists allow people to post their art on different websites if they ask for permission.  
  • Some artists don’t require people to ask for permission but ask that they credit/link back to their website.  
  • Some artists only allow reposting on certain websites, but not others such as Youtube, which can be used to make money off of others’ artwork.
  • Some artists want their work to stay on their own website only, and don’t want other people to post elsewhere. (aka no reposting, period)  

One thing you will want to do is make sure you write down your reposting policy on your blog, somewhere easy to find, like the front page, or on your About Me/Info, etc.  

Another thing is SIGN YOUR ARTWORK, it is soooo important!  People aren’t always going to follow the rules.  They might have a repost of a repost of a repost they saw on Google somewhere and they won’t know where it originally came from because most people don’t bother to check. 

Large signatures/watermarks can be kind of an eyesore (plus you’ll feel kind of bad you have to “ruin” your artwork), but you have to make sure it’ll still be visible enough even after the quality of the picture is turned to crap because it’s been screenshotted like 20 bajillion times on instagram.  

Also, “unsightly” signatures/watermarks can help protect your picture from people using them in more nefarious ways, such as trying to sell t-shirts with YOUR design, or tote bags, mouse pads, etc.  Yes, they can still try to Photoshop them out, but if you put them somewhere difficult to remove then they probably won’t do a good job and it’ll look ugly.  So it’s worth a shot!

(I actually really love seeing watermarks/signatures because then I know where to go visit the artist and give them love directly)  

Anyway, I hope this helps!

Are they a cat or dog person?

Just my own little headcanon about the boys~

Akira:

  • Doesn’t really have a preference honestly 
  • Enjoys dogs for their energy and loyalty 
  • Likes cats for their independence and (usually) quiet nature 
  • When he finally gets his own place he’d prolly get a cat 
  • He’d be a busy man and would want a pet that would be okay with being alone for a bit
  • When he isn’t busy though he spoils the cat like it’s his baby 
  • Doesn’t let anyone know that the cat has him wrapped around its paw
  • Later on in life he would definitely get a dog when he is able to give them the proper amount of attention they need 
  • Probably a bully breed ‘cause he knows all too well how it feels to be judged unfairly 
  • Pupper would also be a rescue dog 
  • Because Akira is an A+ guy and is too good for this world
  • Him and S/O would go for evening walks with the pupper
  • Wearing matching outfits including one for the dog while they powerwalk around the neighborhood

Ryuji:

  • Dogs all the way (before the Phantom Thieves) 
  • And not little yippy dogs 
  • Huskies, German Shepards, Great Danes, Mastiffs… 
  • Manly dogs because Ryuji is manly and tough
  • Also likes Greyhounds 
  • Would want to get a dog that could be his running partner once Akira moves away 
  • The dog would most likely 1000% be named Doggo or something just as silly 
  • After the Phantom Thieves, he finds himself tolerating cats a lot more than he used to 
  • Thinks Maine coons and hairless cats are pretty cool 
  • Would only have a cat in his future home if his S/O asked for one 
  • Because how could he possibly say no to them?
  • He’d pretend like it’s a huge annoyance
  • But is secretly excited that S/O would be happy about the addition to their little family
  • He’d start looking for a kitten for them ASAP

Yusuke:

  • More of a cat person than a dog person
  • They’re graceful, intelligent, mysterious, elegant…
  • “No wonder the Egyptians worshiped these creatures.”
  • Has a soft spot for strays
  • Left out bowls of food at night for the neighborhood cats when he lived with Madarame
  • May have kept a stray or two hidden in his room during the harsh winters
  • Named his first cat Da Vinci since it couldn’t be his code name for the Phantom Thieves
  • Lets the cat sleep in his bed and on his pillow because they just look so comfortable in that spot and he doesn’t want to disturb them
  • Would be the person to sit in the same spot for an hour because a cat fell asleep on his lap 
  • He would introduce S/O to his cat right away to make sure they loved them just as much as he did
  • Has a few sketches of S/O holding the cat because they’re the most beautiful things in his life
  • Would be slightly reluctant to bring another cat in the house
  • Da Vinci is the king of the house and Yusuke wouldn’t want him to feel threatened
  • Relents after much pleading from S/O on the condition that the new cat be named Mona Lisa

Although I’ve been circlying the studyblr community since March/April, I decided to create this blog because the previous one was becoming a bit of a mess, and I like the whole studyblr concept, mainly because it seems to me like a great way to motivate myself and meet other people (two things I’m awful at).
