How to Source Art Tutorial by disco-mouse How to Source Art Tutorial by disco-mouse
In this case ONLY - feel free to repost and share. Information is more important than credit.

I'm so SICK of art theft under the guise of "I didn't know who did it".

I noticed that you didn't put a watermark or a signature to prove that it was yours. ;/

Can you do that next time? XD

I know that it's yours, but your artworks don't have a watermark and/or a signature.
It's easier for others to pirate without signature and watermark. :/

Yes, I know. The irony is that the works I DID watermark were the ones stolen egregiously (watermarked removed, often REPLACED with the thief's watermark), so no real guarantee unless I purposely deface it. You might see these all over facebook, vk.com, weibo, we:heart:it, and tumblr: :This One and especially this one. Reporting dmca for those two would be a full-time job.

I always right click the picture and click search by image (sometimes the option appear and sometimes it doesn't ._.) but it only works in chrome.. So Thanks :D

Gonna share this to prevent those nasty art thieves from reproducing :icondesiremeplz:

This way used to only work in Chrome too, but lately I can do it on Firefox and Safari. (never tried it on IE but no one should be using IE).
