How to spot copyright infringements on Ebay
Many of you already know about problems with photobucket and other photo hosting and graphics sites. There are quite a few artists who think this isn’t a big deal because the users aren’t selling the art. But, for every uncredited picture out there there is someone who will assume it’s free clip art which they can sell elsewhere.
Ripped art is a big problem on Ebay and sites like ioffer. There are even factories in China which make oil painting reproductions using other artist’s work at very low prices. Most other products using ripped art are DIY or “do-it-yourself” items handmade by the seller. That doesn’t mean that they are small time. Many of these shops have powerseller status.  Basically anything that can be made with a home computer or by adding a print to a product can be suspect.  There are also many small companies who legitimately have licensing agr

Hammerfall RPG Copyright Infringement
Hammerfall RPG
<a href=””>Hammerfall RPG is a Facebook game. You may have heard of it. You may have not, but by the end of this article I hope you won’t forget it. It boasts over 233,000 (that’s two-hundred-thirty-three-thousand, just to emphasize) monthly active players. With an average rating of 4.6 stars out of 5, as rated by more than 4000 players, it’s got a fairly good name for itself.
The premise is simple. You create a fantasy character and play your way through various quests, meeting goals and leveling up your character as you go. You’re also supposed to build a “guild” out of your Facebook friends and the more people you convince to join, the bigger your guild, the farther you progress into the game. Since it’s the online equivalent of a pen and paper RPG there aren’t 3D graphics or anything. Just small pictures displayed with each quest or with

As some might have been able to tell, updating the commission prices has been delayed somewhat. We moved over the summer and things have just been nuts, so I haven't really been on DA much for the past half-year or so. I've currently got a lot on my plate so the update will be happening later, but commissions are CLOSED at the moment (among other things, I'm expecting a baby in just under two months, which is a huge monkey wrench). I'll be updating the commission prices sometime down the road, in addition to uploading a bunch of backlogged art. Hang on till then, and happy 2016!

Current Major Project: Going crazy
Commission Status: :bulletred: Closed while I continue to get things squared away from our semi-recent move and for our baby-on-the-way :bulletred:

It's been about a week since I sent you payment for the commissions and I haven't heard from you since then. Everything ok?
