aww man. i haven’t seen the repost, and i think it’s the first time it happened to me?? i mean, it’s the first time someone’s tipped me off. btw, thank you for tipping me off, anon! you’re not incorrect about it, i never authorized any sort of reproduction of my content within tumblr so this person is doing it without my awareness or approval.
this is kind of a bummer, i was getting way too many notes on all the homestuck fanart and kind of expected it to happen… but it still sucks. i really gotta start signing my artwork and just maybe it won’t get erased when people do feel the need to repost.
i’m glad reposting and not sourcing properly has gone down ever since i joined tumblr, but another reminder couldn’t hurt: always reblog from the artist! when seeing art you like outside of tumblr, (kindly) ask the artist for permission before uploading it here, and always give credit! if the answer is no, then please please please don’t insist!!! sometimes artists on pixiv will have it written in english on their profiles that they do not wish to see their stuff being passed around outside pixiv, at which point don’t even bother trying to contact them about it. that would be rude.
if you see unsourced art floating around on tumblr, please consider telling the person who reblogged it that it’s a really shitty thing to do (for reasons i’m sure you all know about already). people who repost images will often have their askboxes closed in order to avoid being called out on it, but maybe you can at least get to their followers.
BY THE WAY can you tell me which blog reposted my stuff? this probably will end in nothing but i don’t want to stay quiet about it anyway. :T
