Lately, I have discovered more and more of my photos being posted on other websites across the internet. Even though I get annoyed when people's don't credit an artist in general, it's not okay in any way to remove the artist's watermark from any of their pictures.  

I try to keep my watermark subtle, yet still distinct by writing the link to my dA page in small font somewhere on the photo. I do this so my photos aren't easily stolen as many people try and re-upload my work claiming it to be theirs. There have been many occasions now where I find multiple photos of mine across the internet with no credit and to find my watermark has somehow been 'coloured' over. This is highly disrespectful and not alright in the slightest.

Many artists, including myself, work very hard to produce such content, and it's infuriating and saddening to see the art we produce being posted with no credit given to us. I'm writing this journal to draw attention to this issue. If you see an artist's work posted on a page that clearly isn't theirs with no credit given or no watermark present, please alert the original artist. You are doing them a huge favour by telling them. I've had a couple of absolute angels note me in the past regarding the same issue and I owe them a lot.


We need to stop this from happening.

Hallo, ma'am Erin Parker.

I hope this message finds you well?

Let me just say... Stumbled across your page while DA-cruising, and, it's beautiful. You're beautiful. Your craft is short and simple, but always possessed of keen wit and incisive insight. 

Request permission to use your works to help combat depression, both in a few of my loved ones and myself as well? 

KEEP BEING EXCELLENT! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

Be strong, be beautiful.

In support and sympathy,
In appreciation,
Yours truly,

Glad I've gladdened you, then.

As in, just simply pass the links of certain pieces to certain friends? Would that be fine?
