Art thieves? Seriously? Lame.

Are you adding the DA watermark, or your own custom one?

DA's, right smack in the middle where it can't be cropped out. But only on the easily swipable stuff like character designs. Though I think it's time for a massive purge of my gallery.

I'm really sorry to hear that. DA's watermark is downright awful. Then again, if people are stealing your work, it makes sense.

Nevertheless, I can understand how frustrating it is. I have had my art stolen in the past as well.

It sucks that that's what it comes to, but I'd rather see your art and have it protected from thieves than not see it at all

All that because of idiots who don't have 1% of your talent.

watermarks do disfigure but maybe some more subtle ones that overlay the image but a are transparent with a hint of drop shadow so it would be hard to clone it out?

That's why I've been watermarking for years, it's horrible what some people will do.

Watermarks disfigure the art.

Yes and no. They can buy the prints at shows, no watermarks on those. I move plenty of them.
Internet thieves piss me off more.

I learned that lesson long ago. Either I upload lo-Rez or watermark the hell out of it.

I recommend you to use a watermark like Hanzo does Xenogears -Weltall Id by HeavyMetalHanzo
