Hello and welcome to my dA page! :wave:

I'm a digital 3D artist living in Northern California with my husband, 2 kids, and our many fur-babies.
I create my artwork using Poser Pro 2014 (with pre-made 3D content) and Paint Shop Pro X8. I've been a digital artist for many years now, since 2006, and while I have found my style, I still learn new things within my craft all the time!

I am also a promotional artist for an artistic group called Artistic License Promotions. We help promote various 3D content vendors and their products through our beautiful artwork.

Please note that the artwork I upload here is smaller than originally created and covered in digital watermarks. This is for my protection. If you would like to purchase any prints, they will not have any of the watermarks, only my artist signature.

Thank you for your visit! Please come back soon! :aww:

Size doesn't matter...

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 9, 2014, 1:29 PM
A little re-visit to the copyright issue. It appears there are some people out there who think that if an image is uploaded at a larger size and/or higher resolution and it is illegally downloaded and used in someone else's images, that the thief shouldn't be reprimanded...because hey, you shouldn't upload your images that big! Um, no.

The ONLY time it is EVER ok to download someone else's work is if you were given permission by the artist of that work or they state on the image/website that the image is free for public use. THAT'S IT. There is no way around that...copyright law states it. Even if the image is available for download via the download button and there is no copyright information stated, the only way that image can be used in any other works or for anything commercial and/or public is if the artist says it can be.

One should not assume that because it's available for download that one can use it however they want. It could be available for reference purposes. Or maybe for personal use as a desktop wallpaper. Or maybe it was just left available by accident. No matter the reason, one cannot assume that an available download, no copyright information, and/or a large file size means it's ok to use. IT'S NOT. Works are copyrighted to the artist the moment they are created. And if you assume that, and take the work without permission, it is YOU who are the thief, YOU who will be reported, and YOU who can be sued.

There is no such thing as an "innocent" art thief. If you take what isn't yours without permission, you are a thief. It seems this thinking that the artist is responsible for some of the thievery is contributing to the reason there is so much theft. The artist is not responsible for what YOU download, YOU are responsible. So if you don't have the artist's permission and/or the image does not state that it is open source material, then you cannot download it and use it for anything commercial or public.

It's really not that hard a concept to understand. For more in-depth copyright info, please see my other journal - ravenmoondesigns.deviantart.co…
