I used this image because I’ve seen it posted without a source SO many times. (I’m looking at you Disney fandom)
Artwork - [x]
I’m gonna go ahead and signal boost the living fuck out of this.
http://saucenao.com/ is a good site to use as well. Another thing you can do is add sources to unsourced art you see on your dashboard so anyone who reblogs from you will spread the source around as well.
it’s even a lot easier to search for the image—just right click the image and hit “search Google for this image”
Something even easier than just that for sourcing is the Saucenao Tool. It’s an extension for both Chrome and Firefox and it allows you to right click any image and search it through either Saucenao (if it’s an Pixiv work), Google Image, IQDB or TinEye with just a simple click!
The google reverse image search is SO HANDY! Whenever clients want a tattoo of someone else’s artwork and have searched ‘tirelessly’ for the artist with no avail I email them back in 2 seconds with the artist’s name, email, and website. This is also super handy when you find stolen artwork, I often reverse image search everything in the gallery that looks out of place and email the original artists. It makes you feel like an internet superhero.
