that url is the artist

anonymous asked:

also ppl crop the shit out of the art so that the signature/url/name is no longer there. why are ppl trying to blame artists aka the victim on these cases

yeah, had that happen too. Not much you can do to defend yourself against that beyond plastering a big ugly watermark over the entirety of your artwork :/



This excellent Morgona was done by the superb and lovely @pkritsu

[Please do not repost unless given permission by the artist]

Don't fucking repost art

I probably make myself a few enemies / lose a few readers by messaging reposters (ESP in the watercast tags) but I’ve got to stand by my principles and support our lovely fandom artists. It’s hard sometimes because they’re usually my readers so I try be nice but firm. I can’t be a hypocrite.

Reposting is selfish and lazy. Reposters exploit the work of others for their own follower counts and notes etc - ESP when they can’t even be bothered crediting. I don’t care what the excuse is: that’s the bottom line here. They go to the effort of reposting and not reblogging (or saving and doing it on insta) FOR THEIR OWN GAIN.

Disgusting behaviour.

Artists: please stick your url or name in big letters across your art in a way that’s legible and hard to crop out. Us fans understand and would much rather see a watermark than see you exploited!!!!!

Now if only fic plaigerism was as easy to call out…haha…

What is the Project?

The PJO Mythomagic Project is a collaboration between writers and artists to create a deck of mythomagic playing cards. Artists and writers will choose a figure from Greek mythology to create for. Artists will then draw the figure, whilst the writers research and summarize information and statistics for the playing card. The deck will be available to download and print for free.

I don’t get when people are like, I reposted your art and didn’t give you credit ‘cause I didn’t know who the artist was when my signature is on there? 

not even a messy one it’s just literally my url?

bad enough you’re reposting my art without even asking,

is the two seconds it’ll take to google my url seriously that big of huge detour for you that you can’t even be bothered to find out who the artist is ‘cause it’s what??? wasting your precious time?????????????????????????

  • If you don’t want to be on this list let me know and I’ll take you off!
  • If someone is a shaladingdong that I missed let me know and they’ll be taken off!
  • And if anyone would like to be added let me know and I’ll add you too!
  • If you were tagged and find yourself put under a list that doesn’t quite fit you let me know and I’ll fix it!
  • I don’t have any artists that are more Hance and Heith centered, let me know and they’ll be added!
  • blogs that never change icon or url: care a lot about brand recognition. probably a company or official blog, or a really boring person
  • blogs that change urls but not icons: usually have a good sense of humor, url changes are usually puns or fandom-related
  • blogs that change icons but not urls: usually artists or aesthetic blogs, generally people with varied tastes. stable and dependable
  • blogs that change both icon and url at the same time: demons.
