Hi, I'm Jen and I just wanted to know if I could use this as a sticker on my journal or binder or something for high school this year? It's my first year and this is just so adorable~ I will give you credit no doubt about that, but I just wanted your permission first before I did anything... It's alright if you say no I can fully understand why... Could I do the same with [link]? Again I will give you full credit I have no intention of stealing anything that isn't mine...
You did not say anything wrong. Mister Beaty-Bunny on the other hand apparently has no idea about digital rights, common sense nor courtesy. (And kinda new here too, deviant for one month...) As a general rule of thumb, ask whenever you use another artists art. They are usually happy to get recognition and they will usually let you use their art too.
I also bet you will get a response from the actual artist soon :3
Nah ... I meant the other guy ^^ but thanks anyway! Myself I've almost been here for two years (18 months in a rather passive fashion and 6 months ... uhm starting to actually post things ...) And who would say no to someone who asks nicely?
Also additionaly whenever you post some art that is basing on other people's work declare it in the description, post the link of the used image and its owner etc.
