As an artist, I know how frustrating it is when people edit my work, and repost it to get attention. It takes little to no effort with a copy of any image editing software. It can immediately be uploaded to your little blog. AND, there is the possibility of instant results! How any one gets satisfaction out of praise of artwork they didn’t create is beyond me, BUT, okay. what ever floats your boat.
What you go plopping images that do not belong to you on the internet though, there is always gonna be some one who stumbles into it and points out what you’ve done.
Whether you trace, copy, put crappy filters over it, or just downright repost the original, SOME ONE, like me, is gonna get a little offended and point it out to you, or worse, the original artist.
Source artists when you share their work. Bounce some traffic back to their page so they can be fully appreciated for the work they have done. Don’t steal art. Make you’re own. How much satisfaction is there in praise over something you stole, in comparison to something you actually created?
YEAH, I am totally ranting again. BUT I AM SERIOUS. Don’t be dumb. If you love art. Love it like an artist and be respectful! It’s so easy, and you can avoid people like me harassing you that way! 8O
I should go to bed. Sorry for garbled jumbled mess of text. I just type as I think. Those thoughts are usually nor organized. Lol.
