Okay reblog if you’re an artist who STRONGLY PREFERS reblogs with commentary

People are apparently under the impression that reblogging someone’s art and adding a comment is frowned upon and that can’t possibly be true, every artist I know of sees a reblog-comment as like the ultimate definitive reward for their hard work.

Obviously don’t feel bad for NOT adding a comment if you’re shy or just don’t know what to say, but if there’s something you would like to say about a drawing you’ve liked enough to reblog, I’m pretty sure most artists crave hearing it.

This applies to art, fic, dumb theories, whatever! I totally love reading tags and commentary!

Definitely re-emphasizing that ALL reblogs, likes, etc are awesome! So don’t feel bad/feel obligated to add something if you don’t want to, but don’t hold back if you DO wanna add something because you’re worried it’s rude.

Well, I can only speak for myself (and probably @norcumi and @deadcatwithaflamethrower), but if you have stuff to say on any of our art/theories/fics, either in tags or in comments, YES PLEASE. 😀

(and yeah, don’t feel pressured if you don’t have anything to add – reblogs/likes are awesome, and I’m happy to know that ppl like stuff.  But if you want to comment/tag, that is also awesome! )

Seconding (thirding?) all of this.  Liking, reblogging, discussing, messaging about, commenting via tags = ALL AWESOME.

The only thing not okay is taking someone else’s work and claiming it’s your own. That’s what we in the biz refer to as a dick move.

FWIW, I totally agree.  I don’t art, but I do fic, and when people reblog it, it’s amazing.  When they reblog it and add commentary, either via tag or post addition, that’s SUPER AMAZING.  Even if it’s just this tag: “#!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”  That tag always makes me smile and do happy kicky-feet because I assume I’ve reduced someone to squeaking incoherently and flailing and that makes me so happy.  ^_^  (Alternatively, that tag accompanied by these: “#D:”, “#TT^TT”, “#;_;”, “noooooooooooooooooo” conjures up a wholly different, yet equally welcome image of a different kind of flailing.  ;D)
