I’ve been planning to do this for a long time, but never really came to since I doubted if people would actually want to participate in this.
Anyway. The Artist Proyect (yes, with a “y”) is a plan made for artists. There has been many (and I mean many as A LOT) occurrences where people repost an artist’s work without properly crediting or not crediting at all. And I wanted to change that. Has there ever been a time you find an amazing piece of fanart but don’t know who the artist is? That’s because there’s been so many reposters out there who never bothered to link their posts back to the creator of the work.
There are times when I see fanart without any mention or credit to the artist, yet if I recognize the style I go online and investigate until I find the exact work AND the artist. Reluctantly I would go back to the post where I found it and notify the person who the artist is and whether the artist agrees with their art being reposted. This is basically what I’m proposing we all do. If you find a piece of work that’s uncredited, take some time to investigate and find the artist to let everyone know.
Now that I think about it, it’s more like a “Find the artist of this fanart” game. Even though it shouldn’t be; people should just credit (or link back to) the artist in the first place. Or even ask permission first!
This is long. But if you’re interested in joining the project you can dm or share this.
Note: just found out it’s spelled “project” with j not y. I’m not used to english rip. But I’m still gonna write it with y for the sake of it and because it’s unique | #theartistproyect
