emangamer reblogged this from you and added:
Oh, I know :( Tamiyo you have the fashion sense of a dad.
Ah, in defense of her fashion sense, it’s not “awful dad style”.
Her “sandal” is Waraji(草鞋), it’s traditional Japanese sandal made from paddy straw. Samurai also worn it. The “socks” is Tabi(足袋), it’s also traditional Japanese socks.
Tabi and Waraji are also good for traveling clothes, and are outfit suitable for her who travels in Planes :)
Let me just pause ooc for a moment.
I’m sorry but it’s really annoying to see this keep happening on my dash. For those who don’t know, Pixiv is considering shutting down access to western users.
Because of edits and reposts onto social media sights, such as Tumblr, Facebook, even Twitter. The problem has been here for the past months and I really just get sad seeing everyone reblog edits and reposts of art that’s UNSOURCED.
I’m sorry if I seem bitchy, but this is a critical issue, because not only would this cut off fandom posters, it cuts off any person in the US from accessing Pixiv.
Pixiv artists are already deleting their works and accounts, more and more artists are deleting everything because of this. I have already made a post about this on my main, and so have two of my friends. You may say we’re throwing a big deal about this, but the thing is- we’re just trying to make sure that us fans and future fans have the art resources.
Things to know:
- ZEROCHAN AND WEHEARTIT ARE NOT SOURCES.
- I REPEAT. ZEROCHAN AND WEHEARTIT ARE NOT SOURCES.
- If you really absolutely don’t know, try the Google Images source thing.
- Or better yet- Saucenao is a better one, as if it’s a Pixiv work, it shows you the original pixiv link, if it’s deleted or not, and the artist.
- If you don’t know the source, DO THOSE STEPS ABOVE, and if they don’t work, state you don’t know it and ask around.
Oh, and biggest thing for the Vocaloid fandom mainly, along with other fandoms:
If you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO REPOST THEIR WORK, ASK THEM FIRST!It won’t hurt you to be polite, and even if they don’t understand english they probably will understand what you’re saying.
I’m reblogging this because I see this as a huge problem in the kawaii blog areas. Everyone is always changing sources, editing works, ect ect and it REALLLYYYYY pisses me off. If you want to edit artwork, learn to draw and edit your own. You need to source things because, bitch, that’s not yours. Someone put time and effort into that art and you have no right to post it without at least saying who it was done by. I’d seriously punch someone if they did this with my art.
At first, sry for my poor English. It’s not my mother language.
I hate to tell you Western people this, but that is one of the reasons why almost Japanese fanartists hate oversea’s fandom, especially Tumblr.
Frankly, the term “Source your posts” is sounds…hypocritical. Source is just source, not permission. Plus, about list, it seems that you consider that you can edit or repost art which is drawn by not-listed artist. You guys are still considered art thieves regardless source-your-posts or not, listed artist or not.
There is no intention that I blame Westerner by that. Personally, I don’t give a shit about it unless someone doesn’t pretend arts as works of his/her own or making money off of stolen arts.
Well, I admit being tired with Western people repeating such kind of fuss on Tumblr many times. By the way, I heard just now the rumor that Pixiv will shutting down access to Western users…AFAIK I have not heard such a story even in Japanese.
Please scatter this pic around to stop pixiv art reposting that happens on tumblr, or any other sites
This picture is related to this post: http://misty-moon-night.tumblr.com/post/28682129866/important-please-read which we posted over a month ago.
I hate to tell you this, but…
Finally, I’m glad to oversea fandom notice that point. As I said many times, you can’t post them regardless with source or not.
this should be the last page of the bible.
I DUNNO GUYS
I THINK THEY SHOULD MAKE OUT
o-oh baka-ghan„, why are you glomping me„,
oh good-sama, because onegai daisuki desu
i can’t look at good/bad pictures without assuming that they have to be shipped
Honesty, I LOVE to see “using broken Japanese” gaijin. sugoi kawaii desu.
Um wow I don’t even know how to reply to these
But this makes me pretty sad.
I’m srsly crey.
sighs self off planet
Reblogging from my personal simply to show what posting non-sourced fanart without permission does to the artists.
Some people apparently think that “it’s not that big of a problem” and artists need to “learn how to deal”. The problem is so big that the artists themselves are giving up, simply because they think disrespect for artists is so big that this won’t change.
Think about that if you ever feel like posting non-sourced fanart.
re:re:re:re:re:re: tumblr users are fucking idiots when it comes to not being blatantly stupid with other people’s art
just source it, okay! it isn’t that difficult.
and even if you have to dig around for a while, it makes everyone much more happy if you get that dang link
I’d also like to remind people that things like SauceNAO and Google’s reverse image search exist! And handy browser extensions for Firefox/Chrome.
Please, please, please use these services. At the least, do it so that you can find more work from that artist and share that with people.
At first, I’m Japanese speaker and not good at English too.
It seems that many ppl still have a misunderstanding about above artists statements.
posting non-sourced fanart without permission = make artist sad
posting fanart from pixiv with source without permission= ok?
No, this act also give artists a pain in the neck and it’s Prohibited Acts.
- The user must solve at user’s responsibility and expense when the user behaves in a defamatory manner, violates privacy right, discloses third party’s information without permission or violates copyright laws. We assume no responsibility.
( 2 ) Reprinting of image data from this site without the creator’s permission.
Source is just source, not permission. Plus, pixiv not allow sharing image, only title and artist’s name with link.(plus caption and thumbnail if you use pixiv gadget)
Then, I’m sure ppl still reprinting and rebloggong fanart without permission from pixiv, even who consented to the above-mentioned statement.
In my private opinion, I don’t care about art reprinting… unless they make money with their stolen article.
It’s my old drawing, touch up a little today. I know that old version was already uploaded Tumbler by other without my permission, but I don’t care about it. I’m used to such a thing.
However, I always distressed when I saw works of my friends (who doesn’t want someone to reprint his/her work without permission, especially, when the source of that is lacking) in Magic Tumblr community because I know that thoughts of fandom are different between Pixiv and Tumblr, Japan and other countries.
I know that’s just a sentimental reason…
A friend of mine has mentioned D&D twice on her Facebook and both times a DIFFERENT PERSON has told her basically (although no in these words) “If you were really christian, you wouldn’t play those evil games.” (again, I’m exaggerating, but there was a serious implication that if you play D&D, Jesus sheds a tear.)
On both accounts, I replied to the people explaining that Magic (Because I don’t play D&D, but it is put under the same criticism) isn’t an evil game. It’s just a GAME.
The first time, the person never replied. This time they may, but it’s too soon to tell. Hope they do and see what I mean. But anyway, I made this to poke fun at it.
It’s funny, I’m Catholic and I’ve never run into this problem with my family/people I know/etc. since I explain to them that it’s just a game invented by a math professor originally to help kids learn basic algebra. -.- Not that I have any complaints.
Siiigh, religious zealots.
Probably, The kind of such a thing is one of the reasons why Christian never becomes 1% or more of all the population in my country…
