Don’t remove the written portion of my art posts for any reason.
You’re welcome to respond to them and disagree with them in any way you want! But I consider the text portion to be as much a part of the post as the pictures. It’s hiding the text from everyone else who views the work off your blog, and everyone who then reblogs the textless version.
Thank you and extra brownie points to everyone who’s asked me first before making edits to my work. Whether it’s a major or minor change to the original, I feel really appreciated as the creator when you ask and I usually say yes to everyone.
