Make sure you're not stealing any art in your signatures and avatars. Always go to the picture's page if you're searching on google images and make sure it's not from deviantart or anything.

You might think: "Oh but everyone knows I obviously didn't draw it! It just looks too professional!" Here's what happens: when a user posts a picture on deviantart and you're using it without linking back, the people who see it believe they have the right to use it too. So they do use it. Pretty soon the picture gets all over the internet. Sometimes people post it on facebook without even saying who made the picture and it gets a hundred or so likes. How would that make the artist feel?


Just check that you're allowed to use someone's work and credit/link back (you can make a clickable pic) if needed. :bball:


Note: This can happen on other sites such as art shops selling art for real money and other art communities.

That's why I put quotes in my sig, and pics. and gifs. on DA that say " free for use" and " don't have to credit me." Or I make my own icons or take my own screenshots n' stuff. Thanks for the warning, though. I'll be extra careful ^_^

Thanks for posting this, I really need to watch out.
I have a question. Do we have to credit watermarked gifs?

I always feel nervous when I use dA pictures or other site's pictures without them saying ' Free for use. ' so I do check. v.v

I can't agree anymore. I always try my best to source icons I make, though sometimes getting an image off google is hard to source.

Adding onto this, there's been a few people who have been using my icons without permission and I'm honestly insulted. :/ You always need to ask for the artist's permission before using anything.

For me. Sometimes I just put my name on the siggies I made :>so that even if they don't asked for permission people could still know that they are not the artist. :>
