It's sad that I even need to make this statement, but here goes, I guess:
Please do not repost my artwork. Please do not edit my artwork and then repost it. Please do not trace my artwork and then repost it.
I strongly disapprove of these actions. No one has my permission for them. No one.
If you'd like to share my artwork, share it from the source. On Twitter, retweet it from my account. From anywhere else, copy and paste a link to the original work.
If you'd like to edit my artwork, you're free to do so for personal use, without reposting. Please do not post edits publicly. Same goes for traces.
Having said all of that, I realize I have no power to enforce these requests. I can only hope for common sense and respect for my creative rights.
I don't have any authority. I don't have the cooperation of site management to police art thievery. DA's reporting system is ass-backwards and useless for actual creators.Once again, I recommend you go follow me on Twitter. www.twitter.com/akairiot
(this is exactly the kind of thing that reinforces my desire to spend as little time on DA as possible)
