…i really cannot believe you sent me this.
okay, first of all, there’s a difference between wanting to show people something for feedback, and making something /for/ someone. if i made a drawing for someone, i want them to use it. i’ve given them permission to use it. sharing my art with people allows me to meet people with similar interests as me, and generally be happy with that! but just because i’m posting it to MY BLOG! does NOT!! give people the right to take my art and put it elsewhere without my consent. most of the time i’m posting just to have a place to put it! it helps me move on to better projects when i feel that i’m finished with something! i like the ability to look back through my blog and see where i’ve come from!
yes, i’m saying, i want my art to be viewable on my blog, on tumblr, through my post which i made. i wouldn’t be angry if someone reblogged my art, because i gave permission for that to happen by uploading it. but if someone’s taking my art and not crediting me, why shouldn’t i be upset?
i never gave people permission to disrespect me by sharing myself and my works with them.
and quite frankly?? this mentality?? is so stupid? you’re going to just tell anyone that has an issue ‘stop posting the stuff you care about’? really? you automatically assume that if i post something, it’s FOR YOU for YOU TO USE and put anywhere you want because ‘lol they posted it they must want it!! ’? that’s arrogance. i’m sorry, that’s arrogance. and i’m up to here with it.
you want to encourage more people to give up on sharing themselves and what they love in public spaces because there’s assholes in the world that take advantage of it, instead of trying to change the culture that enables the assholes. thanks, you’re a part of the problem.
