Hi. It would be nice if there could be a stronger enforcement against art theft on these forums.
It really isn't that hard to put a bloody link to the image source and the name of the artist next to a picture.
This fandom has little to no respect for portrait artists and I honestly feel like you, Beamdog,
should step in and teach the folks here some manners.
Please do something, there are enough artists who hate the Baldur's Gate fandom already.
PS: I was a tad bit overemotional when I started this thread yesterday and ended up being a tad bit to agressive/ insulting on a few accords. I am not gonna go in ahead and edit the posts in question (to avoid confusing anyone), so I am putting a warning here instead. Please excuse me, this has been a hot button topic for me for a long time now. I am trying to keep things more grounded and civil as I go on now.
Also, some useful links I would like to put here for all you TL;DR folks:
- About sharing other people's art/ How to properly source
- About using and modifying other people's works
- Can I use that picture?
