for one reason or another i didn;t get all of the avatars I made on here so if anyone wants there's some more in a less organized fashion: http://photobucket.com/albums/v440/NekoKit/AvySig/

Pardon, but it's polite to credit where you got the bases from. Plus you've used some really pretty art - particularly 28! A link, please?
Finfaded_neko on September 28th, 2004 01:37 pm (UTC)
bases? like the screencaps or the art?

I don't remember the site for the artwork, sorry ;.;

Not to sound rude, but did you ask permission to use the art in the icons? Or the cosplay pics for the matter...

For the ep 50 icons, I might take a few but on some, the text cannot be read or it's too blurry to use.
Finfaded_neko on September 28th, 2004 01:39 pm (UTC)
yeah... ;.;' i didn't ask permission but all the artwork and cosplay pics come from japanese sites so it's kinda hard to ask.

I can easily tell you what the text says if you'd like just give me teh number(s). ^^

(I'm probably going to get into a stinky argument about this kind of thing again, but you have to fight the good fight.) I don't mean to cause offense, or to be rude, but there are some things you should consider.

If you didn't ask permission, and you can't even give a link as credit, then you shouldn't be using the images at all. It might seem to be a trivial matter, but many artists, particularly a lot of the japanese fanartists who often get their art stolen by western fans find that kind of thing really offensive. Since they have gone through the effort of creating those images. (And plus, the rest of us English speaking fans want the source of pretty fanart too, y'know?) This primarily japanese union lists the reasons why japanese artists find people taking their images so offensive, even though many people think it's "just" fanart. http://www3.to/ofp/

The cosplay pictures are even stickier - I don't think a lot of people would appreciate having their faces used again and again as icons, and if you want to use someone's photo you actually do have to get their permission. Privacy laws and all.

Even if the image is from a japanese site, and it's difficult to ask, if you're going to use it, you should take the trouble to ask, even in English. Normally, if you can navigate those sites, you should be able to find an e-mail address of message board, and ask there. You could probably even get someone in this LJ community who's japanese is good enough to write an "asking for permission" note.

Sorry, but I find it quite offensive when people's excuse for not asking/crediting is simply "The site I got it off is in japanese."

I get your point so I won't argue at all. Maybe because I've had people I know have art thieves still their works but I'm also a cosplayer so yeah it would be annoying to have someone stealling the things I've worked on. I'll try to remember this for next time *bow*
