It's bullshit that these sites never cite the author of the webcomic. I know some webcomic artists and they make a chuck of their living off of their site traffic. Is it really asking too much to throw the "geeks" that create these works a nod and a few hits?
Like some comment at the bottom that says [Source: Dorkly]? :)
Or the image itself having a Dorkly watermark?
Correct and also, incorrect. Dorkly is the source in which the image was published, but that's like citing a book and not its author. That works for well known artists, sure, but not smaller web-based artists. The artist is (hopefully, because I'm 99% sure) Caldwell Tanner, the illustrator for CH and Dorkly. So, to cite this cartoon properly, GAS…
Tanner, C. (2011) 'How to Conquer a Dragon in Skyrim'. [Cartoon] Dorkly November 11th. [Online] Available at: http://www.dorkly.com/comic/27206/how-to-conquer-… Accessed: 14/11/2011.
Looks like Dorkly is actually citing it under Owen Parsons, another writer and animator for both CH and Dorkly.
Hey everyone! This poster's a HUGE NERD!
As it's Dorkly, the illustrator is likely to be Cladwell Tanner, the illustrator for CollegeHumor, Dorkly's parent website. See his website at http://loldwell.com/
D'oh. Caldwell Tanner!
I thought showing someone else's images and art without acknowledging the artist was a legal no-no.
I literally went "Awwww, dont cry poor dragon!" when I read the last cell XD
Yeah, that made me sad, too. :(
T.T Dawww… Poor Dragon.
It's bullshit that commenters on these sites never read the entire post of the author of the webarticle. I know some bloggers and they make a chuck of their sense of self off of comment traffic. Is it really asking too much to throw the "writers" that create these works of literary art a nod with a few well thought out comments?
So being Geek is cool but being Nerd is not, meh…
I'm surprised the dragon isn't on his laptop, raging about it on reddit.
Forever alone dragon :(
