I would honestly never post things like this but it’s been going on for a really long time and I don’t see anyone else talking about it, so I’m going to say it now: before posting pixiv work, ask the artist for their permission.
Artists work so hard to put dedication into their art, but by re-uploading their pieces to other sites, their art gets more attention on ENG social media than the Pixiv website that way. Just slapping a source on the art you post isn’t proper sourcing.
It’s not that hard to ask permission! Pixiv users are very nice and polite, and will either say “yes, you don’t need my permission in the future”, “yes, and please keep asking for my consent in the future” or “no, I do not give you permission to re-upload my art elsewhere”.
There are many nice translators out there who would gladly give you a template if your Japanese isn’t top notch. Here is one I use.
I admit that I didn’t do it before, but please just start making a habit of asking them. For example, state who you are and what illustrations you want to post to what site:
And a reply might look like this:
もちょこ and many other artists are willing to share their work if you just ask. Making a Pixiv account is free, and there are ENG and other language choices if you don’t understand JPN. Copy/paste the template into the message box, follow the given instructions, and you should be done! Some Pixiv artists will reject, but that’s okay! Please respect them and their artwork! If you didn’t do this before, please do so! If you need help, feel free to contact anyone for help. Never lie and pretend you have the artist’s permission, because they will find out and will prohibit any other redistribution of their art!!
