I honestly don’t mind if people post (as in sharing it) my artwork on other sites so long as it’s done in a similar sharing way such as tumblr or Facebook. Like, where the image acts as a link and my username is accompanied by it. NOT putting it on a site and saying I drew it and hoping that someone would look it up. To be honest, I didn’t even think that my work would be good enough to “steal.” Sadly it’s been on sites in languages where you know that there’s nowhere to report it. I’ve had my work posted on a porn site…like…it was a non-sexual, no nudity, just Mayuri in an alternative outfit. Just standing. With his zanpakutou.
What gets me, is when someone steals my work and it’s got that huge ugly deviant art watermark on it. Like, are you for fucking real…? You stole something with a giant transparent spot that’s meant to protect it from people claiming credit?
Also, what’s really weird, I was googling my deviant art username to see how far my work has gone—either from me posting it on tumblr or it being mentioned on some people’s blogs, and this site has my username in the description. Now, wondering what it was, I clicked on it without reading the name of the site. I got caught on some fake govt website that claimed that I was violating some law. Apparently it said a list of illegal stuff and my mac temporarily locked on itself. Apparently protecting my stuff.
I don’t even understand.
SERIOUSLY, THOUGH. DON’T STEAL MY WORK. DO NOT REPOST MY WORK ON WEIRD SITES WITHOUT GIVING ME CREDIT. DO NOT MAKE MY ART DOWNLOADABLE AS SOME DESKTOP BACKGROUND. DO NOT MAKE SOME CHEAP, THEMED HTML GALLERY SITE AND PUT MY SHIT UP THERE—-ESPECIALLY WITHOUT A LINK. DO NOT POST MY WORK ON PORN SITES. OH MY GOD. I DON’T EVEN DRAW PORN. I DRAW SOME NUDITY, BUT IT’S NOT PORN.
DO NOT STEAL MY ART. DO NOT REPOST MY ART.
NO ROBAR MIS DIBUJOS Y PINTURAS.
I DON’T CARE IF IT’S FANART, I DREW THE THING. ASK ME.
