F*cking art thieves.
Ridiculous, isn't it?
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
sorry this is happening to everybody
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?
I'm crappy and even I've had art stolen. It sucks bigtime.
i watermark, never allow download and also make small so no one will click and save it. And I also put a the bottom do not use without permission.
i've never had art good enough to get stolen but that pisses me off. we should track them down and kick their ass!
That's why I've been watermarking for years, it's horrible what some people will do.
Watermarks disfigure the art.
I learned that lesson long ago. Either I upload lo-Rez or watermark the hell out of it.
Goddammit, tell me about 'em.
Nah... and art thief will just chop off the bottom 5mm and use the picture anyway... they don't care about a small bottom strip like that
Its getting worse that's for sure!
