This took forever to find because rendering something makes it almost impossible to find the original artist but here you go. You should really ask permission first this is art theft, even if you say you don't own the original picture it still is because you're editing it and not sourcing them.
I know -.- I know what rendering is so I do know that it is editing the original picture. You do not have to tell me. I will ask that person if I have time. But please stop with interfering with my business. If you are only going to lecture me than I can waive about that. Thank you.
It's not about whether you have time or not. It's just what you're supposed to do. And it's certainly not the job of the original artist to chase you down and ask you to source them. It takes literally 5 seconds to find the original work and source it. I'm sorry but "All credits from the original picture go to the rightful owners!" is not a source and "Because I have a real life" is not an excuse to steal artwork.
And lastly, dA lets you edit your submitted works, so there's no reason why you can't source this right now. You have the link right here, thanks to TreeSap26. People spend hours upon hours of work on their artwork, so please take that into consideration.
I do know that I am supposed to do so. But do you live my life? No, I actually have big troubles right now and sorry but I have other things in my head than you complaining about something which doesn't even concern you. I do not steal artworks! It is really mean of you accusing me of something like that. I never ever said that I want the artist to find me or whatever.
If I have the link (like on this picture) I will edit it immediately. Like I did here. I respect every artist and I think they are amazing in every way.
Sorry but I think it is a little rude. I know that it doesn't justify it, you don't have to tell me about my own mistakes.
I do not steal artwork. I never say that it is "mine" only the credits of rendering it and that is true. Nobody else rendered it beside me. If I am able to contract the original artist I ask him if it is alright for me to use it. If he disagree to it, then I will delete it and I am serious. It is not from your concern what I do. I don't know you and you don't know me and I doubt then this will ever change. Your welcome.
Please do not say "all credits for the rightful owners" This is against them and this may even be considered an art theft, eventhough you did credited them, you're supposed to ask for their permission and FIND them.
I do know that -.- I really want to find the original artists, but when you search it you find thousands of pages sometimes. You can't even find the original artist, even if I want to. Right now I am quiet busy so I have no time. But I try to find them and then I will credit them.
