Hi guys. It has recently come to my attention that at least ONE piece of art has been lifted from my Deviantart account and displayed for someone else's personal use.
This is a biiiiiig no-no!
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!
I'm very flattered that you all like my work and it's a major boost to my ego that my talent is appreciated, but this is not a Free-for-All!
I upload my art online for MY pleasure and for public VIEWING PURPOSES ONLY by deviants and non deviants alike.
ABIDE BY THESE ...SUGGESTIONS.
#1. It's bad mojo to take something that isn't yours. Learn this well.
#2. Most of what I display are PAID commissions. It's not fair for me to charge real currency for art only to have you right click and tamper with a commission for FREE.
#3. My Deviations are watermarked for a reason people! If I wanted you to use the original, I would post it and allow download of the images. Mmmm, but i don't.
TAKE THE HINT.
#4. Don't edit/alter/display/sell/ claim work that you 'ain't got no' business with.
#5. THIS AIN'T A GAME. Respect ALL artists and their wishes. We do not have to post our art here for YOU to view. We choose too.
It is disrespectful to go around plucking up images like flowers in a field!
As a matter of fact: don't even pluck real flowers. They're happy in that field until you come along. :I
We (artists) work hard in our craft and want to be treated fairly!
If you think it's okay to take images from the internet and use them whatever you darn skippity well please, answer this question:
"When you go to an art gallery, do you walk in and pluck paintings you like off the walls?"
You answered no, right? ;3 I thought so.
BECAUSE THAT'S A CRIMINAL ACT.
THEM'S FIGHTIN' ACTIONS.
Don't be a jerk.
View, respect, and appreciate the beautiful images you see, but DON'T take liberties with other people's hard work.
