This <—- this made me more comfortable about posting my art in all honestly.
You can try your best to prevent people from stealing your art, but in all honesty if someone wants to really know who did the art work…. THEY WILL LOOK FOR YOU! AND THEY WILL FIND YOU. I used to be heavy on watermarks - still am if the illustration is being used as shirts or prints. I learned recently that it’s only hurting me in the long run specially if I want my art work to spread, and to get noticed by art directors. Pretty much what I’m saying is… let your babies roam the interwebs, and people will find you if they want to find you. Think about the re-posts as free publicity.
If an art baby is lost without source, and you know it’s creator/maker/parent send a shout-out to both parties.
On the other hand, report anyone that claims art as their own when it’s not. Report them if they steal and sell the art as their own. That’s just no bueno.
This is short and brief, but hopefully no one misunderstands. u_u It sucks when you don’t get proper credits, but you can’t hide your art babies because of these art thefts.
So much clutter.
3d animation is so much clutter or colorful confusion. T^T
