So I'm a doller, which means I take bases from other artists and overlay them with clothes and hair and other details, like a paper doll. Hence the term.

 

I've made some Bionicle dolls and would like to share them with the community. However, it's really important in the dolling community to always credit the basemaker. Not doing so would be plagiarism. Would I be able to link to the basemaker's website?

 

Would this also count for pose reference for baseless works? Because it's also polite to credit the creators of the stock images I used. Would I be able to say, link to their deviantart profiles? (Since that's where I get most of my stock reference.)

 

If it comes between posting without proper credit and not posting, I'd choose not posting, but I want to check first.

Had to be me. Someone else could've gotten it wrong.

If the website does not have forums or explicit material then I beleive you are okay. Ill see id I can find that in writing somewhere.

 

You may find these useful:

 

    [*]
    • Advertising for commercial sites of any kind is not permitted whether in a signature, profile, post, Private Message, etc.
    • Advertising for a message board or forum is prohibited without approval of Black Six. That includes having a link to a website that links to another message board. Advertising for message boards of any kind is not permitted whether in a signature, profile, post, or Private Message, etc without approval. In addition, just mentioning or alluding to a site in violation of this or any other advertising guideline will result in administrative action.
      • Do not PM Black Six asking for approval. Approval is not given by request, it is offered if Black Six feels your forum deserves it and is by invitation only.
      • NOTE: Advertising for a forum via instant message is also forbidden. The IM name was found via BZP, so you used the BZP system to solicit or advertise, and that is against these guidelines. Advertising via IM to circumvent BZP filter controls is just as bad a violation as any other means of advertising.

[color=#ff0000;]This is a question I'm equally curious about, however, I'd it'd be okay as long as the site doesn't have forums.[/color]
