 art is supposed to be about connecting to the world by way of your art. not about "getting credit"  Its about making someone say "wow that is freakin awesome, i want that on my myspace profile" You should be flattered that its been such a success. I mean after all, You did create this art to be seen and used, otherwise you wouldnt have it uploaded to this site without a signature or a copy right.    


I feel your pain about the commercial use but i cant get why you seem so shocked. You basically gave the world your art when u uploaded it to this site. I know you understand how this page works. It allows anyone (including non members) to browse and download images.   These are the days of Internet Piracy...  nothing is sacred. music, movies, identities, and definitely not our ART if its online and unprotected.

Wow. I downloaded it I don't even know how long ago for my comp wallpaper and it stayed there for a good two and a half years then it slipped into a folder in my 'pictures' to be revisited on occasion. Can't people be satisfied with appreciating the art AND the artist??!

Look, I hate to nitpick, but you really are being rude having this submitted with the word wallpaper in the title (and wallpaper as a search keyword), and then saying we can;t use it anymore. Please remove the the word wallpaper from your title and search keywords.

Otherwise, it's just a huge cockblock. Not cool man, not cool.

No roblemo. It's been years since I submitted it and edited quickly with the description you can read now.
Thanks for reminding but there's no need for calling me rude because I forgot to edit one of my 850 deviations which I submitted 3 years ago you know. I already removed it from the wallpaper section a long time ago.
Anyway, thanks for reminding. I'm removing the word 'wallpaper' from my keywords but not from the title because this image is still available as a wallpaper if you message me and give me enough time to send you the original wallpaper version. + originally it was designed AS a wallpaper.

Im sure shes not giving every1 the 'finger' she probably just didn't want ppl claiming this pic as their own, which I'm sure some ppl have done. When she first submitted it, she only allowed it to be used for PERSONAL use. Like, just as a wallpaper or screensaver, not a myspace layout or on a youtube video.

Would also love to have them as wallpapers on both my iphone and Mac...

But as usual there's a few who sabotages for the many but the many are the ones to suffer for it. The few just wanders on to the next piece 'cause they never really cared in the first place.

Either way I respect your decision. Great work!

I can understand your anger about ppl using your work to a certain extend... But isnt art to be used freely? In my opinion i couldnt care less if my drawings were used all over the world. The thing that makes me happy is if i create something that ppl will aptrreciate, wether i get credit for it is irrelevant. I draw because i love to draw, i want ppl to enjoy what i make everywhere in the world as much as possible, i dont make art to get something back, i do it because i love it, and i feel that should be the only reason for every artist.

You shouldnt get upset when your work is used elsewhere, you have to see it as a compliment.

If you were earning your life (paying your bills, buying your food, paying for your child's doctor, renting a place to live etc.) on creating art you would probably see where I'm coming from. Especially if somebody was making profit = MONEY = on your art that you displayed because you find pleasure in sharing. Sharing = showing and not enabling as a stok image that anybody can do whatever they want with it.

If you find people downloading an image from internet, sticking it on an item and selling it a compliment then I surely won't discuss this whole matter with you because there's no point and we will not find a consensus.

If being an artist for you equals being a victim and being submissive than I won't argue with you either. For the same reason as above.

If you don't care about your art and what happenes to it and for it NOT being recognized as yours then feel free to dumnp all of your art on a pavement in a crowded place and abandon it. I will not. Because I love it and enjoy it too much to not care about it.

So if you ever start earning your life only on art and you get it used illegaly for more than 4 years then I think we could talk about it without giving anybody advice if you have never been in this person's situation. Because you haven't been in mine.

I understand your point ofc, but since you are already able to make a living off it, there is no use anymore to "let" your art be misused by putting it online. You have to take notice of the fact that everything you place on the web is target of piracy.

Im not in your position so i cant relate to how things work exactly, but i would think if someone pays you for art, that they have to deal with the concequences of it being used illegally. I would think youve already earned money from the things you made, and thus wouldnt be anything bad for you when its used again for someone elses advantage. Art you do not have yet taken credit for shouldnt leave your hands when you plan to make money from it later on.

Im not in any way saying your wrong or im right, im just trying to understand how one can be mad about his work being used.

Most of the pieces I license as I don't wanna sell them to a single buyer unless the compensation is fair. So one piece that has been used a few months ago legally by somebody I licensed it to is prolly gonna be licensed again as many of them were.

So then think about NIKE or rebook fighting with fakers who sell products with their logos. Whole loead of thousands of those products are stopped on borders and destroyed in bulk as they are illegal copies, fake goods with a NIKE/rebook logo on them. Are they supposed to be ok with other people making money on their brand too? Or are they supposed to hide their new models and not show them to anybody?

Well I'm sorry, I'm never gonna be ok with that. Especially when someone is so ruthless to make money on it. Why should I allow others to make money on the stuff that I created? On something that does not belong to them?

And yeah, I have to take that under consideration when I submit art but at the same time internet gave me more good than bad things in life and I'm not willing to stick everything I do in a drawer. But I'm not willing to give away something that exists only thanks to me. Especially for commercial use.

People like athletes who need good gear like nike know where to buy it, its people who dont care about the brand or durability. Why would a woman buy a Louis Vuitton purse? Because other ppl will see its LV and its expensive, not because the leather is better or better stitched. Ppl who like art will buy the original, ppl who buy illegal copies of any kint of product dont care about the authors making money from it and i cant blame them.

Its obvious we share different views on the subject, but i wish you good luck anyway ;)

Would there be any possibility of getting a wp or jpeg (etc) image? I'm seriously just looking for a new wp; I don't even have a webpage (unless you count my devart account).
