Okay, hella dumb rant time!!
I CAN NOT STAND THESE ANIME "ART" ACCOUNTS THAT REPOST OTHER PEOPLE'S ART WITHOUT THE ARTIST KNOWING!
Side Note: Yeah, my old hetalia account, I use to post art from various artists on Tumblr and be like talking about the character in that image. No credit but their signatures were still there, and when I did post my art, I specified that it's mine and never claimed other people's art because that's r u d e. And a large percentage already knew who the artist was because their styles were so unique. It was a fan account for no money purposes, dumb lol BUT--
These "art" accounts are always like "which one do you like UwU follow -insert the not the artist instagram here- for more!" And then like below, near the useless hashtags, they tag the artist and or leave the username/link that never activates to the user. Do they ask for permission? Idk, do that? Do they credit? Yeah, but after shilling themselves. And all the comments are like "ahhh you're such a good artist!" Those reposts get more likes and are recommended in the hashtags followed more than the actual artist's original post. :/
Like one person I saw on Twitter says "please don't repost my art." And lo and behold, one of these beta "art" accounts on here posts it. Like dude, come on. Good job you credited them but oh my god. Half of the time, I can't even find the signature on them but I know they gotta be there because a lot of artists are anal about that, rightfully so. What annoys me the most is that some of them don't even answer the comments saying "hey, this isn't my work, tell the original artist." Or whatever. (all the ones I've seen so far do this.) Yeah, they put it isn't theirs but apparently some of these people don't read or even ask the artist so it seems :/
