guys, this is fucking Guild Wars concept art (by Daniel Dociu) with a Dave Strider copypasted on top of it.
Stop removing original comments pointing out the source of an artwork.
Stop creating “fan art” by stealing artwork and slapping something on top of it.
Stop spreading misinformation.
This is an especially obvious example for art theft because it even says “how does this not have all the notes” as the top comment, which is not what an artist would post along with their work. This is your first clue of a repost. Now click through to the source, using the link at the top right corner of the post.
Now we know that someone merely slapped a Dave over this very impressive artwork. (Friendly reminder: Copyright includes the right to edit.)
The blog itself also says this:
So what we have here is
- a repost
- of blatant art theft
- along with deletion of the original comment pointing out the source
all of which took less than 30 seconds to figure out.
Guys, apply your intelligence, don’t mindlessly reblog.
Support artists, not tumblr’s “no credit / I changed it so it’s mine / I found it so it’s mine” culture.
