This is the resources page. It cites the locations and creators of many of the materials I use to make my graphics. If you have seen me using your work but you aren't credited on this page, please leave me a comment and I will add you as soon as possible! :) Please note that not this list does not contain every single website that I have ever downloaded images from. Some sites have moved or closed or simply been lost to the throes of time. I try my best to keep this list thorough and up-to-date, but please understand that it will never be 100% complete.

It's pretty simple, actually: if art has been posted on the internet, it's fair game to be made into graphics. It doesn't matter to me if the art is by a Japanese artist or a western one; art is art. If an artist don't want people to manipulate their work, they shouldn't post it on the internet. That said, I do not consider myself an art thief; this resource page is filled with credit for all the art I use. Any art that I cannot credit is disclaimed in the graphics post.

Naysayers of this policy should stop to consider the nature of fanart in its base form: fanartists make art based on copyrighted materials without permission of the original creators. All forms of fanwork do this, and graphics makers are no exception.

Therefore, please do not come to me with complaints that I'm "stealing art" by not asking permission to use a certain fanartist's work. Someone has probably already beat you to it. XD But until fanartists (and other fanworks creators) are held to a higher standard and required to ask permission from creators before putting pen to paper (or tablet, depending), you'll just be the pot calling the kettle black.
