Find The Artist/Source/Image Request Thread

In category: Art Talk

Due to the high amount of volume on artist and source request at this time I think they should all be compiled on this forum

Welcome to guess that source/artist! The game that keep on giving
The rules are simple:
If you tried the image search engine mentioned by Munkelzahn but failed in finding it then ask away on e621 and collectively your culprit will be found

post a question concerning a image and eventually it will be answered by users

And stickied. Any future "source/artist pls" thread will be locked and directed here.


Thank you. I can't believe how many 'OMG SOURCE???' threads popped up recently, it's pretty annoying. I don't understand how people give up so easily when reverse image searching and basic googling/tag searching is so easy. It's mind boggling.


Couple more to link.

http://iqdb.harry.lu/ - e621 and e621 alone
http://saucenao.com/ - e621, other boorus like gelbooru, pixiv, deviantart, anime and doujins
https://www.iqdb.org/ - Japanese artwork boorus
https://images.google.com/ - Search engine indexed sites
https://www.tineye.com/ - Same as google, if google fails

Some of these services do also keep deleted posts samples, so you should get results even with those. However keep in mind that deleted posts when services crawling was malfunctioning or before the service was established, aren't in the results, so image could've been uploaded here but it will not show using those services at that point.

Then there's also MD5 searching. e621 and inkbunny supports searching with this, so if the image looks like that it could be of original quality, this is worth a shot. Sometimes MD5 is part of the filename or URL, which can help if e.g. image seems clearly downscaled but has hash of original still as filename. Formats of sites are listed here.

Like single cell said, before the image reverse searching was a thing, we have a site where everything is at least hopefully well tagged, so sometimes simply searching with most obvious tags usually gets the result. If you didn't get educated in elementary school how to use search engines to your advantage, remember to click that (Search Options) next to search field.

Could be useful to add a new rule to the site regarding the creation of "source plz!!!" threads.
Read the rules again, seems to already be covered fairly well by the Spam section, tho another line specifically mentioning Source Requesting wouldn't hurt.

Although, considering how green the users who make "source nauw" threads usually are, it most likely won't have any impact, considering the users in questions most likely haven't read the site rules.

And then there's https://saucenao.com/tools/ that combines all of them


post #338975 is still pretty much unknown

actually anyone who's willing could just take a run down the unknown_artist tag and try fixing things theirselves


I apologize in advance

I browsed a site my friend uses sometimes and found an image I wanted to figure out the source for. Said image

I of course searched e621 for post with tags it might’ve had if it was posted here. I didn’t find it here. I can’t make out what the artist name exactly is from the signature either, so my next bet was reverse searching. I’m using mobile, so It seems my capabilities are limited. I say this because I can’t view the image itself to use for reverse searching. So I had my friend send me the downloaded version so I could upload it to an image hosting site from there to use to reverse search. I tried all the methods from above to no avail, (I couldn’t get this one to load results for some reason) and I’m not sure who else to ask for help. Hopefully because it it’s dated for 2018 it’ll be a bit easier to find.

Thanks guys, you’re awesome. But I’m just curious which method you two used, just so I know what I didn’t do.

For me, I recognized the artist signature and just went to their FA page.

Search canid underwear on FA with date sorting and it's the second result. The Tumblr source is linked in the information.

Alternatively, running a reverse image search on Google brings up a couple pings in people's favorites. You can just go to their pages and look in their favorites.

There's a very specific image I'm looking for, since my last computer died I lost it for now..

The image is kind of a sketch type drawing, of a blue and white eastern dragon whacking off, and he's looking at the viewer saying "Hey Now!" Or "Hey You!" one of the two, I also think he's wearing a birthday hat too. Can anyone help me find this image for me? (Add on, that he's also cumming too and he has his back to the viewer)

And I'll tack on I think I know the artist, but I can't seem to find the image itself. The letters I remember are BGN or something like that, but I've looked through the artist's name and NOTHING. So, I'm looking for the IMAGE, not so much the source. Though finding the source would help.

Oh and an extra note: I was told to come to this one and my original topic was locked by another admin.


Google reverse image search doesn't seems to work anymore. Here's the proof:

https://www.seroundtable.com/google-reverse-image-search-change-25058.html

So other than TinEye, is there any sites that use reverse image search?

Works for me (with the pic two posts up)
Also, I don't think that's the kind of question this thread is for, would've been better in its own topic.

Source?

post #281322

Just as reminder, if the stuff is already uploaded onto the site, then simply use source request tag on post.

You can check out all available artist sources by clicking ? at the left side of artist tag to access artist wiki. (For example Todex posts in at least 4 places)

Added proper submission sources to both posts now.

Tagged the character (which I only knew because someone tagged it for one of my uploads).

...looks like a crop of post #1297974.
