Look, I hate multi-fandom-tagged posts as much as anyone but enough is enough.
To all you dickweeds that keep uploading unsourced Pixiv art, do you know what this is?
This is what you see in your Pixiv bookmarks when the artist deletes the picture. My Pixiv bookmarks has a hell of a lot of these icons right now. I feel like every time I look theres another one there.
Artists can take down their art for a variety of personal reasons, but lately, one of the biggest reasons is you SHITHEADS ON TUMBLR THAT KEEP ON UPLOADING STUFF WITHOUT SOURCING IT.
Do you have any idea how rude this is? Do you know how upsetting this is to the artists to see people steal their art and just post it wherever the fuck they feel like just because they ‘thought it was nice’? I don’t give a shit if you think you’re being nice by ~letting people see the nice art~, the original artist was DOING THAT THEMSELVES ON THEIR PIXIV PAGE. Maybe you think ‘oh but if they dont like people stealing it they shouldnt have uploaded it to the internet in the first place’, but NEWSFLASH it doesnt matter what you think, it matters what the actual artist thinks and wishes and if you have a single iota of respect for them then you’ll respect those wishes of theirs for you to not just upload whatever the hell you want to tumblr without adding a source.
If you want to promote some nice art, LINK BACK. If you’re too fucking lazy to look for the source using saucenao or reverse google image search then just delete your damn tumblr and go away because I don’t have time for your shit. Pixiv doesnt have time for your shit. It honestly wouldnt surprise me if Pixiv started up a feature that lets artists block anyone outside Japan from seeing their art if they so choose at this point.
Always remember to credit the original artist and link back to the Pixiv page, as visibly as you can.
ZEROCHAN IS NOT A FUCKING SOURCE EITHER.
