You can use my art in any way you want.

You can post it on your website/blog, use it in a video, make an icon, print it out, WHATEVER! If you link me back, it's really nice, but no obligation. And you don't have to ask me. Just HAVE FUN!

Most of the stuff I post is fanart, and fanart belongs to the fans! If you like my originals, fine, you can have them too.  I usually post the highest resolution I have (the Download button).

I can't see why those artists who are willing to kill you for reposting a picture of theirs even bother to post their art online. I have a lot of personal stuff that I don't want people to see or use and, guess what, I don't post it. My gallery is a place to unite fans and make them happy, not for artist's narcissism.

Many times DeviantArt's fanartists saved me from most violent depressions and I'd like to do something to make someone else's day a bit brighter too. May joy and freedom prevail!:)

i totally agree with you on this.

but sometimes ppl repost your art and saying that they're the one that draw them and not you... which doesnt seem fair cuz you're doing all the hard work... even to make money too..
so either way, they should at least give you credit for the work and then they can do whatever.

Thank you for your comment!:)

I don't really think of drawing as of work. It is in fact so hard for me to draw that every time I manage to express my ideas in a drawing I feel like I've been given something from above. So for me it comes natural that I should give my art to the world without any restrictions.

Maybe, the most wonderful thing about art is that you can share it without losing it: I know that my drawing is mine even if someone reposted them saying it is theirs. If someone could make money, I'd applaud them: I'd never manage to make money by my art, it's just something I can't do, so why not let others do what I can't.

And to be honest, I find it much easier to just let people do what they want than waste my energy on making them be fair or polite.) I save energy for drawing, cause that's what I really enjoy.

of course, i understand your case... as i feel the same way about my artwork too...i be happy to draw pics and give them away freely to my friends.

but the majority of peple/artists don't seem to think that, because they work hard to improve on their artworks, and needed to make money using their own arts..therefor, their arts are their life work.
If someone else using the art to make money, the artists won't make extra money for bills or children and such....and their talents will be a waste...

This is something i know and understand from other artists. ( i know i will feel the same way if i improve on my artworks )

still, i do understand your point of view, cuz right now drawing is just a hobby to me.  :)

Yes, I see your point. I agree with you that when you are trying hard to live by your artwork, it's depressing to face art theft. But I don't know not a single artist who live by selling the art created by their own inspiration/dreams/desires - all professional artists draw what their employer wants them to. They usually work for a company (making video-games, brand comics, illustrations, stuff like that) and when their work is done, they don't own it, so it's up to the company to deal with any art theft issues (the artist is not allowed to post their own work online in the first place!)

Some companies can be really hard on art theft (even in innocent cases, like fanvideos), others see it as a way to get publicity. There is this new comic publisher in my country who produce their original comics as monthly magazines - and they don't mind people sharing their content via torrents. They even allow their artists to post some of the work online (for example [DA link]) because it attracts new readers to the magazines.

And re-blogging (even unauthorised) is a very good way to get publicity for an artist: if you make your signature clear, easy to google and hard to cut from your drawing, is can work as your visit card for potential employers who come across this drawing on the net.

Well, the person/company who ordered the artwork are usually willing to buy it along with the exclusive right to use it. For a company it is the question of profit to make from the artwork and for a person it's the feeling of truly owning what they've bought from the artist.

" My gallery is a place to unite fans and make them happy, not for artist's narcissism."
- I would like to see it in all users descriptions :)
That shows that You're not trying to be an pseudo artist, but the one who enjoys her work and wants to share it and spread your ideas...
That means, You're a creative person, who wants to make a progress :) (IMO)
Nice to see this kind of entry in here:)
Greetings!
