I have a very bad habit of lurking on this site without ever posting much in the way of comments or favoriting pieces, on account of being too damn shy.

I feel so silly making this journal but here I am.

So I was in my inbox and I saw that someone had drawn me something of my character Astro for my birthday, which is today, but I somehow managed to click the 'x' to make the notification go away before I could see who drew it or where I could find it. So far searches using my name/the character's name have yielded nothing and I feel so bad having to make this journal.

If that was and of you followers - could you let me know so I can properly look/comment on it? Thanks!

Found it, nvm!

Hello, may i use the art disclaimer image on my profile page here? With proper credit. I havent found a disclaimer that has properly addressed "Dont use my OCs in rp..etc" until i stumbled upon yours

I understand if not. Thank you for your time

Yeah, go ahead! I've seen other artists make similar disclaimers and that's where I got the idea from, and I have no problems at all with other people using it.

You have anger issues... Art is for one's enjoyment. It is supposed to be fun and entertaining, you being all anal about your art being shared without your consent is stupid, in all honesty. If my artwork was posted everywhere I would be honored that people liked it so much... I would not get pestered and offended that they didn't ask me if they could present it on another page. Artists like you really frustrate me, because you take it too seriously and in my opinion, it takes the enjoyment out of it all entirely.

People have literally taking her persona and using it in ways that aren't okay with her and claiming they made the character and that themselves or a friend did the art.
Also, as someone that does art professionally for a living? It does matter if people are reposting your work. I've had people steal my work on try to sell it on shirts. I've had people post it up without asking and claim they "don't know who drew it" while also saying they found it on Deviantart. Half the time my watermark is still on it! So unless they can't actually see (doubtful) they know who drew it. Lack of proper credit can mean that a million people see my work but no one comes back to the source to follow my work or to purchase things from me.
I'm glad that you apologized to Acro because she's honestly a very nice and cool person. She's dealt with people repeatedly stealing her things and portraying her characters and stuff in ways that make her uncomfortable and upset her.
Artists have a LOT of reasons why they might not want their work shared. Sloooow down and consider the situation and maybe do research before you make an angry comment man. It'll help you a lot in the long run. Just, take it from another artist that this stuff is a real problem and artists aren't trying to be dicks when they ask people not to repost! Sharing our work is fine! We're usually happy with that! Most of us would just like credit. Link back to our gallery or a place where we have posted the art! Most of the time I'll link someone to someone's gallery and go "Okay you HAVE to see this person's work." because if I like one piece I usually enjoy other things by that person.

I thought the same fucking thing before it actually started happening to me. Get back to me when it's happened to you.

Why are you allowed to be entertained at the cost of my happiness?
