alright lovelies. i didnt think id have to bring this up anytime soon but //please// do not reference or trace or claim ANY of my art. most of it is from commissions or personal art. my art is SPECIAL to me. i get you might not be able to afford anything from me or you like my style. i get that. but that doesnt count as an excuse to reference or trace my art. im not going to blow up because ive already talked to this person but i mind as well make it known. my bio says this all as well. use REAL LIFE pictures as a reference. not someone elses art. ive been drawing for 6+ years to get to this. it means a lot to me. dont copy what i do please guys. believe it or not, i dont take tracing or referencing as a compliment. it sounds harsh, but art is literally all i am good at and i put my all into it. i dont want that destroyed. this is my psa/rant thank you for reading.
I want to clarify my policies on referencing, just cause.
I am perfectly okay if you reference PARTS of my artwork. Need help drawing ears? Sketching paws? Feel free to reference a little! But do NOT heavily reference (copy or tracing my work), or claim my art as your own.
What I'm okay with:
-SLIGHT style referencing
I've worked hard to get where I am, and I'm proud of what I can do. Please don't copy, guys. Not only is that not okay, but it's Illegal to claim someone else's work as your own, even if you're tracing something. Just. Don't. Do it.
I couldn't be any more prouder of my Belle who successfully ran her very first workshop today for high school students, on referencing. She then confidently ran an info season for the parents. I love watching my children in their element! She will be re-running this workshop in the coming weeks. The students also asked her to run a workshop on in-text and footnote referencing. Thanks @isabelle.taylor xxx
This book has been in my reference collection for a long time. Just moved and was unpacking my books and found it in all its weathered/broken/ripped glory at the bottom of the box. If you are looking for a good bird book to reference from or if you just like looking through bird books just like me, this one is awesome 👌👌
