shitty artist feels

“So what do you say, amiga?”

Can you say ‘unnecessary sexual tension’?

Sombra’s confronting Widowmaker for some reason idk you can fill in the gaps. All you need to know is that Widowmaker is #not in the mood right now and Sombra is in way over her head. Also, don’t let their position fool you. Widowmaker’s in complete control of the situation. You don’t get as far as she has without learning some tricks.

I drew @commanderholly in a cute/witchy outfit. I was planning on drawing her in one of her Looks™ but that just…didn’t happen?

Things have been blowing up recently with YouTube and it’s genuinely upsetting. But Commander Holly is honestly such a role model. She marches, she uses her platform to speak on real issues, and she’s just an all around incredible woman. So I highly recommend watching her content, because she’s a genuinely good person with a lotta’ heart.

Just a quick sad lance to practice the grayscale

  • Me: *Sees nice art/artist with cool style*
  • Me: Wow, this is great art!!
  • Me: *Continues to scroll, looking at tags. Sees something tagged R/ei//mo/b*
  • Me: Nevermind.
Alright, Serious Talk.

So I’ve been talking to this fellow for 3 days now, asking him to stop reposting my art and remove it. He’s been stalling and ignoring my request, trying to slip in a few excuses to try and continue posting my works. (Not to mention he posted other works of mine that we never agreed on when he asked me to post my art with credit given)

The reason I have asked him now to remove it is because I’ve grown VERY uncomfortable with him posting my art. (not to mention he doesn’t seem to want to correct anyone who claims the art to be his which is one of the reasons why I’ve become uncomfortable with it.)

I don’t understand why it has taken three days for him to just accept that I no longer give him permission to post my art, but I’ve finally had it and am now FURIOUS to no ends.

My friend helped me come to the conclusion that it is now THEFT. I no longer give him permission, yet he still stalls with me wanting to keep the art that ISN’T HIS on his account. 

So I will be reporting and blocking him on this site and DA. 

I am rather fed up with this type of stuff: It isn’t your art, it isn’t your blog, IT ISN’T YOUR AU. What gave you the right to think that you can ignore me like that and try and direct me to do what you want me to do?! 

I’m done. Really. I’m done letting people push me around like this. I am a kind and very, VERY patient person. I really am. But I have a line AND I AM PISSED. I am still a person. I have FEELINGS. I work my ass off making those drawings and making this AU. I’ve spent WEEKS thinking up plot and designs. This right here has pushed me over and I’m FED UP.

I’m not a door mat for you to walk on. I’m not a robot who will do everything you ask. Treat me with respect and I will do the same. 

Here’s my drawing for the @gfzine! Of course I had to draw this little shit 8> 

Im so mad lmfao like why do yall think you’re entitled to an artist’s artwork like. Yall get mad when they tell yall not to tag it as a certain thing/not to repost but yall do it anyways and then throw a fit abt it???? Like first of all,

1. They draw it. Not you. If you don’t like it go draw your interests yourself. Don’t harass the artist. They owe you nothing. They don’t have to draw something a certain way just to make some of you dickheads happy.

2. Artworks take artists HOURS maybe even days, weeks, or months! If they ask you not to repost something then ! Don’t ! Do ! It ! Saying “credit to artist” and stuff like that doesn’t help! Just use reverse google image, find the artist, ask, and if they say no then dont! Its not hard ! So when someone just does it anyways its really shitty and makes artists feel bad because they work hard on that shit.

3. If they ask you not to tag it as something then?? Don’t??? Its not hard lmfao and if you did on accident because you genuinely didn’t know then just fix it. Not hard. The artist may not want it tagged as something for personal reasons, you never know.

4. Don’t even get me started on “well you put it out there on the internet” argument or some shit because its literally still on your part. Its not hard to just ask permission first and respect their decision if they say no.

Overall it costs zero dollars to be a decent human being and respect artist’s and their wishes.

If you're going to reblog a picture of a pairing from someone just to add onto it that you dislike the pairing/the character(s)
  • don’t.
  • really don’t.
  • we see your tags and the things you say in your reblogs you asshat you had no need to add that.
  • the odds are really good that whoever made that likes the characters/pairing involved and having either/both badmouthed by reblogs is a shitty feeling
  • don’t.
PSA

just a reminder, there are artists who have deleted their accounts because of people posting their art on tumblr unsourced, so please take a few extra seconds to put “art by (link to original work/artist’s page)” or just putting the url in the source. or better, look in their artist’s bio to see if they say “do not repost without permission,” and then don’t post it at all.

it’s actually a site-wide policy on pixiv that you shouldn’t repost art, and they have blocked non-japanese IPs before because of this.

some artists have tumblr accounts and then think “why bother” when people would rather repost their art than reblog the original.

some artists are OK with you posting their art if you ask permission first.

but it’s really shitty when an artist feels the need to shut down their pixiv account because of this! if you enjoy someone’s art, don’t be a jerk to that person! 

thanks
