New Rules for Using My Art

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 19, 2013, 4:45 PM


Lately there has been some major issues with people using my artwork for a number of things like references or tracing or whatever.

I'm putting this here so there's no more confusion:

DO NOT TRACE, REFERENCE, OR USE ANY PART OF MY WORK WITHOUT MY DIRECT PERMISSION.

I'm completely okay with you wanting to trace or reference my work, or even color my line art. However, I'm not okay with you doing this without my permission, and then pitching a childish fit when I tell you to either credit me or take it down. It's hard enough getting recognize, trying to find a job, so I don't need people taking my work, redrawing it, and claiming they made it all by themselves.

I'm a very nice person when it comes to this stuff. Ask for permission.

(Unless it's trace work.. then that's just a no. No tracing. Stop tracing. Tracing is bad.)

Not so long ago , I've offered to hack the accounts/websites of the persons doing that,after one successful hack , I've got too many requests. That's when I realized there's just too much people to whom hard work doesn't ring any bell. I hope you continue to make art and that people see this and other messages and finally understands how the artist feel when he get his art stole. Each time I'm impressed by artwork, I bring down 1 more account, when I'll have hacked 50 accounts, I'll hack a personal website or blog.

Common sense ain't so common after all, eh? :(

I wish this was common sense. *sigh*

You're so reasonable and giving compared to some artists, I really hope people listen.

I encourage a lot of people to color my line art for practice. I'm okay with people maybe wanting to edit things. I just want people to ask for permission and credit me. I don't understand why people feel the need to pitch a hissy fit when I ask them to. :(
