sorry to to worry you. I’m a mechanical engineer with limited artistic talent. However I do play tabletop role playing games and I use the images as inspiration. I don’t repost, publish or otherwise attempt to profit or claim your or anyone else’s artwork. I don’t even print them for my games. I save them here so I can show them to my group at the source where I found them.
I’m sorry you feel that you must protect your work from theft. I hope this allays your fears. If not, I can’t do anything more to reassure you.
I'm curious to find out why despite your having been a ''member'' of deviantART for almost a decade you have not as of this time produced any artwork of any description. This sort of thing always worries me - as I've had 'blank accounts' steal from my work before now, using it for commercial purposes. Please be advised that all of my art is copyrighted and produced by intellectual property rights and I take immense pleasure from pursuing and suing those who do.
