~watermarking sucks~ but so does STEALING

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 9, 2012, 12:00 PM

  • Drinking: coffee

i am very sorry that i have had to "watermark" all my art work but after seeing some of my pieces "stolen" and used on websites off of dA....i have no other choice but to shrink the images and watermark them.  all the pieces i have posted are for sale (at a reasonable price) but are NOT FREE to just download off this site. it's unfair to me, and to all artists, for people just to "take" pieces or to claim them as their own artwork.

about my art:

i guess the first thing you'll notice is that my pieces are a little odd...or maybe another way to put it is
"different".  yes, i have done "normal" but right now, at this stage in my life i tend to do quirky.

some of the pieces may appear to be down right ugly to some people...but not to me. i love doing them, i love how they develop as i work on them, i love reading about each region...the history, the turmoil, the people, and the geography.

i would like to explain what these pieces are comprised of....most start off as NASA or "Google Earth" type photos....into, not on, not under, INTO these images i "paint" portraits. i can not and do not change the geography.

the faces in some of the portraits appear to be scarred or bruised or cut....these areas ARE the rivers and lakes and roads and mountains of that region....sometimes the actually "scarring" that mines and man have made on our planet.

some questions you may have:

*what are these portraits exactly?  the originals are high quality, limited edition, signed prints.
*are these pieces for sale?  yes, contact me for available sizes, prices, and shipping costs.
*what sizes are available? i can make these images any size up to 36" X 48"
*can i order a "custom" piece of a specific region?  yes, i love doing custom pieces.
*can you do MY portrait into the piece?  yes, contact me for specifics.
*how long will a custom piece take to complete?  i work VERY quickly, contact me for more info.
*do the prints come framed or unframed?  i can do both, contact me for details.
*why do you do this kind of art? many reasons, i have an environmental science degree and a fine art degree.
                                 i love science, this planet, and art. i try to combine those things
                                 into these pieces.

Please contact me with any questions or comments you may have.

On another note:

dA has chosen to limit art searches and i am against this.

As a long time PAID subscriber WHY am I, or ANYONE for that matter, restricted to only seeing a LIMITED number of images in a search? I use Resources and Stock images. I credit the artist for using their stock. Today while searching through the male stock portraits the following warning came up: "Sorry, deviantART does not serve more than 1000 results for any query.

So I can view the first 1000 of the most popular male portraits OR the first 1000 of the newest male portraits...but NOT the 41000+ male portraits in the middle?? This makes NO SENSE to me. I have written to the Help Desk and I hope it is just a glitch...if it's not I won't be renewing my subscription or promoting dA as i have since i joined years ago. I feel i should be able to see/search/enjoy EVERY piece of art on this site. PERIOD! regardless of where it shows up in their rating order.
I complained, THEY sent me a link to the "where" THEY made the decision. they did give me a 3 month subscription which i appreciate but it does not change my view of limited searches.
Sorry for ranting...

thanks to all of my friends that take the time to look at my stuff and comment...special huggerubies for YOU :hug:s!

a special :smooch: to one of my dearest & longest known dA friends :iconred-handed:

:wave: bye! :blowkiss:
