Hello there. I'm not labeling you as an art thief, but perhaps you could simply list the artist's name in the description, or not crop it out from the picture? That way if someone was ever curious about the artist, they can try to look for that artist because of your confession. This way you're really doing justice to "appreciating" their art. Even though you're not claiming their work as your own, you're using their work to promote yours, so giving at least some form of credit would be nice.
i never purposely crop out someone’s @
if it’s blocked by the words of the confession than that’s just how it is & furthermore, there are plenty of fan arts that aren’t given an @ but hey if you guys think it’s really that easy to find the source of every fan art out there than hey drop them in the comments of the confession, id love to give credit when due! but truthfully, i’m stoned 96% of the time i do these confessions (hence the typos haha) so i really ain’t tryna spend hours tryna track down one person, wait however long for them to check their email or account (what if that account isnt even active anymore?) and then post the confession? that shit could take days, weeks or months i think you guys really just want something to bitch about when really i’m just a girl tryna pass some time and give people an anonymous place to vent in the naruto fandom and a lot of this isn’t directed at you, i know you aren’t tryna be malicious im just saying
