Due to theft of my work and worse still, butchering my work to remove my old watermark, see link Paintedover and here Untitled , I have re-watermarked a lot of my stuff. I know this peeve's some people and to be blunt, I don't care, if you don't want to fave my work because of a watermark that's your decision but don't comment on my work about it. I am not interested in having arguments over it.
On a daily basis I see DA art all over, especially facebook and not just that but DA art that is being sold on ebay and other sites in the form of cross stitch to phone cases.
I don't make art for other people, I make it for me and if you are bothered there is a brief explanation on my profile page.
Yes, it is always nice to get good comments and even constructive criticism. If people want to fave or comment or add me as a friend I am always very grateful, but as I have been on this site for 10 years, getting followers isn't my top priority or even something I am bothered about.
April 14 update. I may have caught this too late as it is popping up on pinterest by other users, on the up-side, at least no one will know it's mine. I would recommend anyone checking the site out, while most 'pin' direct from your page so that if anyone clicks it, it takes you to your DA art page, a lot don't. Type your DA user name in the search box
