    Did a digital painting of a model from IG, can I post it?

    Hello CA, I recently finished a collage/digital painting of a model I found on IG, I tried contacting her once through email on her IG profile and once on IG msger, a week apart, to see if it's cool that I post it on my profile, but haven't heard back.

    What's the etiquette? How is this sort of thing viewed when it comes to promoting work and such? I don't see any harm in it if I'm not trying to sell it, but I know that some artists don't like when their work is posted somewhere else without their consent, or is used for any reason without them approving it. I see a ton of work that's referenced or copied (celebrities, magazine posts, etc), but I'm not really sure if that's right or not, or how the professional industry takes it. I'd like to give her credit, but at this point I'm not sure if she would want it. Here's the original and my work for comparison.

    I think you can just post it in your profile, be sure to credit her by linking to her instagram.
    Do not sell it without her permission.
