Deviant Art? Heh, Fotolog is the Nobody's Land. Everyday, hundreds of fanarts are uploaded. No credits. Sometimes edited. Sometimes they even claim to be the artist! o.o

I don't know, sometimes asking directly to the artists can be a really hard thing. Because of the language, or because sometimes it's really impossible to contact them.
I've chosen to credit. If I know the artist's name, I'll credit them. And if I just don't know the name, or even their page (if they have one), then I won't use that fanart at all.

Yeah, I generally feel bad whenever I take an icon and never figure out the actual 'owner' to who made it.. Partly because I have a nasty habit of 'taking' icons currently in use from someone because it's cool/funny/whatever, never see where they got it to begin with, collects dust on my HD before I even use it =/.

So yeah, I do sometimes have to say "author unknown" for a few things. Because most of the things I find are usually second+-handed when I found it. However, if that said person comes or somebody knows who made it tells me. Then sure, I fix it.

.. Fanart, however, I feel more squicker about using. Unless it's a doujin cover or something. Even then it's only for something much more personal like a wallpaper than public like an LJ icon or so..
