There’s something about the act of intentionally going in and removing artists comments from a reblog, even just a line or two of text, that never fails to make me uncomfortable. These would totally be the people in real life that compliment your work and then offer you 2 bucks for it or ask for free drawings in exchange for “exposure and because hey they actually like it”. Nothing quite like implying someone likes your drawing, but they don’t value it as work or what you have to say about it (even if what you’re saying is trivial).
And in a very tumblr specific way, imo like removing comments feeds that gross repost no-need-for-credit culture blogs that exist? By disassociating the artist you can sort of inadvertently reaffirm that they don’t matter because “you should be happy they like your work at all” sentiment, etc.
I really don’t need that kind of condescending approval.

I’m sorry this beautiful image is from Kaciart, I think? I don’t know how to… link her? if anyone knows please tell me!!
I would tell you but your askbox is not open.
If you already know who made it, why didn’t you just reblog it?
#thilbo hehe! Going to zoo! Pandora is playing Concerning Hobbits and I feel awesome, no cramps this week! Yay today looks like a good day
Seriously omg this time I just have to say it. I’m not even going to bother hiding this in a tag. STOP REPOSTING ALL THOSE BAGGINSHIELD PICS. IT CAN BE FOUND ON TUMBLR. ON THE OWNERS’ TUMBLR. GOD. REBLOG DON’T REPOST. APPLY DIRECTLY TO FOREHEAD.
You see this? This painting has caused my poor, dear friend, Sara Dunn, a lot of pain.
It’s a fun image that has gotten a lot of attention, but this attention has been misplaced through outrageously unsourced art.
Now, even the tumblrRadar has chosen to ignore that Sara actually has a tumblr: bluebirdovermyeyes and reposted the image.
It references her deviantart url: decomposerdoll, but makes no effort to link to the image even on there.
If you like her painting, I strongly recommend reblogging it from Sara, the artist, and perhaps looking at some of her other work.
