I’m going to make it very clear that ‘re-editing’ an artists work does not fall through as giving you the original rights to the artwork, give you ownership of your piece or give you any right to claim that work as your own. You should always ask the original artist for permission. Even so, it’s…
Why do original artists always come across such problems on tumblr (or on any other of these art sharing platforms)?
To include a link to the owner of the work really takes seconds only, and it’s stupidly simple. You already learn at school how to quote someone else’s work correctly, use this knowledge, for god’s sake.
It’s always a huge and heart warming compliment for an artist when others are inspired by his/her work, and we as artists are immensely grateful for that, for we know how important inspiration is for a creative soul and how much it gives you. So please, be as grateful and as thoughtful to give credits for the work reblogged to the original owner. We just ask for a little more integrity and fairness here, nothing more. And we appreciate your flying hearts and the reblogs. So please appreciate our work too.
Thanks for reading and considering.
