How to Give Credit by Ailvayn How to Give Credit by Ailvayn
I hope this helps show people how to give credit where it is due, especially in photo manipulations. It bugs me when I come across beautiful pictures that don't have credits, because then how do I know its really your work? I mean, if its your stock or whatever, go on ahead and say its yours.
Don't just leave it blank, let us know the mastermind ;)

Edit: I finally made a new tutorial for this, and updated it here in this location. The old one was becoming quite obsolete so I hope this helps answer any new questions! By the way, if you want more tutorials, on anything I do, let me know, yeah? I love sharing the power! lol :D

PS: I'm sorry for my crappy handwriting. It's always bad and even worse when I'm trying to write on the tablet. I will never understand why I can draw beautifully but then my handwriting sucks. OH WELL! :D (I also apologize for my typos. (make, instead of makes.) Whatever.)

You have to have either :dev or :icon at the beginning. KaliFHunter20 :iconkalifhunter20:

So, it's :dev KaliFHunter20: but WITHOUT the space in the middle, so it's just one continuous stream.

Thanks, I've always wondered how people got the artist icons. I've just been using a weblink to link back to the original artist. Thanks again!

What is we asked somebody if we could use their picture as a profile pic and they say yes? How do we give credit for that? I'm just curious.

Ailvayn Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
That depends on where the profile picture is. There is almost always a comment or details section that a link to the original work or artist may be posted.

Pretty much! It's also nice to say which part belonged to that person, and generally that person will want a link to the art you created with their work and will often fave it, so its always nice to let them know what you did with it.

I've commented here several times, but I figure each time I have to look back at this to see how to give credit I will thank you. So thanks! And here is what I was giving credit for: nevir-saedi.deviantart.com/art…

Thanks so much! This was super handy dandy for giving credit in descriptions, which I was struggling with. ;) Now all I have to do is figure out how they make those adorable tiny 'links' when they comment/link back to stock provider, and I'm set. And I can't write on tablet, either. They're rather funny that way. ;)

:confused This did have me wondering, also bookmarked btw. Oh oh oh oh 

Like if you draw something from an anime, manga or whatever.. but an OC instead of (a) character(s) that are in the anime/manga while using stuff from the anime/manga, just get the links, names, etc from the original anime/manga owner(s) and just give them credit of sorts by adding their (company/business or whatever) name(s) or even linking them even if not on DA or something else?

:confused: Checked some other pages by DA before like copyright stuff and submission policy things... still confused from it all as there are tons of drawings who just credit the original guys and leave it at that.

As a general rule, you should only use something (publicly, as in, if you post it online or share it with your friends, etc.) if you are given permission to use it. That doesn't mean you can't use it for yourself to look at, by all means, do, but remember that if you put it online or show it to your friends or family or so on, the initial reaction is going to be to think that YOU did it on your own. This is where credit comes in. Most, but not all, of the stock photographers and resource providers have the rule that if you use it, you show them WHERE you used it and credit them as a source. If it is not in the resource section, you should always ask permission before using something if you plan on showing it to anyone other than yourself. If you want to use something commercially (as in, make money off of it, like a logo design or a book/album cover design and so on) then you need to ask permission as well.

Man I can never remember how to do this. Basically every time I upload something I have to look at this to remember how to give credit.... On the one hand I am annoyed with myself, on the other hand thank very much! lol

Yea, if I could color like a normal humn being i could do more. But I go all OCD and am zoming in to the pixel view level tomake masks to make sure that the colors aren't bleeding together. Which probably actually hurts more than helps..... -_- And it definitely takes forever. On a positive note I could change the color of anything I've colored in like 5 minutes lol.
