Hey, why is it a big deal if people repost your art or sell stuff with your art on it?

because that’s called stealing, friend

you are literally taking someone else’s hard work and selling it to make a profit

When someone reposts an image without credit to the artist, that takes away an opportunity for an interested party to become more familiar with that artist. Several times I’ve seen my own graphics be reposted somewhere with a comment saying ‘I want this on a shirt!’ when it actually IS available on a shirt. Which they would know if the image had the source. 

And when someone uses a graphic that you made and puts it on merchandise without your expressed permission, then they are literally making money off of something that you made which SHOULD be going to you.

I do not understand why it is complicated. If you made something that everyone wanted and then someone slapped their name on it and made money, you would be pissed.

Okay, decided to whip this up because of the following reasons:

1) I get this question a lot. Apparently there are a ton of folks out there that are really new to paypal and while I don’t mind helping, having a good reference page for folks that shows you exactly what to do will cut down the time I spend explaining it.

2) I’ve had two flags on my account in the past year because no one check the “No Shipping Required” box. So Paypal comes to me and says “Hey you didn’t ship our their thing!!!” but I do digital commissions…there’s nothing to ship! So this step is really important!

3) I often have to give out my Paypal email over and over for this and I figured having it in one spot might help!

There will be a new page on my blog with these images and I’ll try to keep them up to date if Paypal happens to change their format! Hope this helps you guys!

Alternatively, the artist can send out an invoice. There are no options for services when the artist is the one requesting money but the “shipping confirmation” can be bypassed by selecting “no tracking information.” So long as no one expects a physical copy to be sent, it’s not a big deal.

An important infographic.

Sometimes I get sidetracked by ideas I lack the skills to carry through. Say hi to one of them. (It’s a horror game and the ai i want is more complicated than I can manage)

The first image is a sketch of the player character, the chibi is an NPC, and the monster is a monster that is not designed to be seen as more than flashes of weird movement, bright eyes, and long fingers in dark hallways which is why it looks a little silly on its own.

I’ll be painting these, but I liked the sketches enough that I wanted to preserve them before I went to town with the paint, so. vOv

Only partially shaded, but I’m exhausted and unfortunately I cannot spend as much time on non-paying arts as I’d like. :(

This lovely lady is the character I play on Vertigo Weyr; it’s a Pern RP forum that’s pretty laid-back and generally chill. I like it, basically. Aleksand here is a dragonrider who is secretly an ex-highwayman. She’s basically the embodiment of awful and I adore her. :3 Her dragon’s based on old-school unicorns too, so there’s different flavors of awful in that duo~

Her outfit’s heavily based on regency fashion combined with ~*~MAGICAL GIRL~*~ because goshdarnit if I’m not hilariously predictable sometimes. She’s loosely based on another OC I’ve posted pictures of here.
