Ugh... I soooo wish that you would be willing to let us actually see your artwork in all its wonderful glory. Alas, I'm presuming that you can't bear to release these as desktop wallpapers, huh? That would involve you shrinking and moving the all-destructive watermark to the corner or something.
I know, it's annoying for people to whine about watermarks. Believe me, my stuff is stolen every hour, and it's infuriating. Just a difference in philosophy I suppose. Just know that I'm only whining out of sincere love for your work.
once upon a time I was a good and ingenuous soul and I had a dream where people could be so pure as I was. Everything could be done in good faith and people were happy just to have the opportunity to help each other.
So I found all my works being SOLD in stock photos websites and I saw my works in products and t-shirts... I just heard from people "oh guy I didn't know it was your work".... Now I'm just trying to make them sure that the work is mine and I changed my mind. If they want to make money using my work, give me part of the money and we all will live happy forever
Yeah, I know that fairy tale too. I admit I underestimated how shitty people are for years. My Rank icons are sold on more stock sites than I can even count anymore. They're chopped and slapped on music CDs, web banners, even a few indie movie posters. They are used for the absolute worst iPhone apps. And everyone just points their fingers at the next person.
I don't mean to whine about your precautions, I just really do love your art. I'm purchasing "The Prize" at the largest canvas available for my new apartment. And I was very happy to find the DepthCore packs where the desktops are available without the watermarks. Anyway, thanks for sharing your gift.
