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.
