I usually don't like because it's already posted on DA. I mean, it's pretty easy to link a ref sheet if it was a ref sheet commission? ( But if you mean resubmitting as in showing on profile but not gallery it's fine, but I like credit. Not much people commission me though ha )

No, resubmitting means an actual submission, not just showing the thumb, that I am fine with :P
Either way, I don't like it either if it's already on DA!

I'm cool with it as long as credit's given in the description! I mean, I think it's a little silly since main galleries aren't supposed to serve as a generic image hosting service, but whatever floats people's boat.

I personally upload the art I get to my sta.sh so that other people won't see it & think I made it, but if the artist takes down their deviation I'll still be able to use the images to decorate my page.

Yea, that's a good idea! I don't have it in Sta.sh because my main fursona has too much art to keep in there, but I save it all to my computer and put it on Toyhou.se for tracking purposes.

For the most part, I prefer it, actually, provided they give credit.

I mean, I may as well get the free publicity from their audience seeing my art, right?

That's fair! It just gets annoying when their audience doesn't bother to actually look at your page and simply stays with the reposted version, because then you don't gain from it.

I said I am fine with it as long as they ask beforehand and give credit.
However, I feel it would be more logical to show their watchers the art they were given in a journal/poll instead, rather than resubmitting it.
With a reference sheet, I wouldn't mind them resubmitting it, as long as the proper credit is given. Not giving credit is a big no-no.
Like a lot of people, I never delete artwork from my page unless it's personal art, and I just don't want it seen anymore because it's so horrible. But all art that I've made for others will stay, in case they lose it and want it again.

I guess it just really depends on why they want to resubmit it.

Yea, I'd also much prefer a status, journal or poll feature, so that the actual faves and views still go to my work :P I don't delete any art from my gallery, so they should always be able to find it whenever needed.

In cases like mine, I deal with people who delete and/or store within 1-10 days of doing the commission, then refuse to unstore and refuse to give me the fullsize file, thus reposting is the only way I could have the art on this site as once it's gone it's gone and they won't bring it back regardless of how much I paid.

I'm alright with it as long as they give credit. Obviously once asked of course, though few ever ask to do so.
My boyfriend does repost commissions he gets on here with proper credit, since he's not confident with his art skills and expects negative feedback on it. It's a long story on that but he does always ask first before reposting the art.

I don't really see the correlation between not wanting critique on own art and reposting someone else's art :0 You mean that he still wnats to post stuff but doesn't want to post his own art?
Either way, it's good he asks for permission!

It was not really critique, more like constant trolling and belittling, with him being autistic he took it as he shouldn't draw ever. I didn't see this happen myself since this happened before we dated so I'm going off what he told me. He's more of a writer artistic wise so he commissions others for the art of his characters.

I think it is okay to do it as long as credit is given (specially since the author and the submitter are not the same person). However if the artwork is already submmited to dA, when wanting to thank the author it seems better to link to the submission in the journal.

Obviously, asking for permission is always the best option...

Yea, I always prefer sharing the original deviation over resubmitting! Unless the original is no longer up of course, but if it is...
Especially when it's a full image, it just seems better :P

If you disable sharing you also disable the thumbnail code on a picture. So when people click the little button that removes the FB, Twitter, etc buttons, they also remove the thumbnail link.

I think this is what BlackFoxEyes means.

As hard as it is to confront people, maybe he is simply not aware of how it's a bad thing? It's possible that he simply doesn't know! If you do tell him about it and he doesn't stop, it's another story :P

I personally will try to avoid it whenever possible - I never delete art from my gallery, so it should stay up regardless of how old it is. If people need a separate, I will happily post that to my own Scraps! I will allow it for reference sheets and such, but when it can be avoided... I really prefer for it not to happen. I don't like the concept of someone making a new deviation when mine already exists, and it's the exact same thing :P So if it's not necessary, then I don't really want it.
If I allow it, I want people to ask first, and I ALWAYS require credit and a link back to the original, no exceptions.

I repost when people deactivate or store or delete stuff I paid for.

I've had people store/delete paid commissions within a day of doing them on me and they got lost forever because I was late to save them and it made me super mad.

Nope, half the people I had the misfortune of commissioning have been the kind who store and/or delete it and the original file as soon as they are finished. I've had maybe ten people note me just to give me the file BEFORE they deleted it, but otherwise I've dealt with people who I feel do bad business despite being suggested to me.

Eugh, that sucks :/ I don't understand such people.... At least store it, so the original file can be found again, or give people a warning in advance. It's unfair to remove art people paid for without notice.

I agree, I find it almost scamming because if you don't save it on the spot or are away for a few days -as has happened to me- it's gone before you get it and can have it.
Reply
:iconspitfiresonice:
SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Exactly, it's close enough to scamming in m opinion. No one has ever died from having to keep up a piece of art in their gallery for longer than a few days. How hard can it be D:

I haven't ever really made art for anyone, but I rarely ever did resubmit art, just on three occassions, one told me I could since she's not around on this site, one disapeared from the site and I did it to honor him and made sure his name was mentioned, and the third, saw it as advertising space so he kinda asked me too, but I haven't done it in a long long time
