Hey, all! Another year past and another semester completed since my last journal update! I am already wrapped up in my new semester and chugging dutifully along with it. I wish I could say that my last semester was another round of all A's for me, but Chemistry and Latin turned out to be pretty challenging! With a hefty amount of effort on my part, I did at least manage to get B+ in both of those classes! Latin is thankfully starting to make (a little) more sense this semester so the title of "most challenging class" now goes to Geology, which is really quite chemistry heavy! :ohnoes: My studio art class this semester is 3-D and has us working in clay, plaster, and wood. I just completed my clay project yesterday and have been enjoying that class very much.

In the midst of my hectic college life I am happy to say that I am still accepting and processing commission orders albeit at a slower pace than before I began college so I extend my sincerest gratitude to all of you who have purchased art from me during my college career, to those who are currently in line to have their art completed, and to those who are looking to place orders. I am, as always, working steadily through my queue and have been taking advantage of between-class times when I can ink sketches that have received approval from my clients. I have a file folder on my computer that is just brimming with completed commission art that has yet to be posted to my gallery, which I really need to begin doing on a regular basis so that you all have new art to look at!

Again, a great big thank you to all who have purchased work from me already or are planning to in the future. Your support for me and my art is helping me pay my bills and college tuition and I can't thank you enough for that!


:star: Third Coin In The Predator Prey Series :star:

The coin series that I have been creating work for now has a 3rd installment! This one features an eagle and a snake with a prickly pear cactus.

My client commissioned this art to use on coinage that is being sold as a collectible but can also be legitimately used as real currency in the Cook Islands! The eagle and snake coin is .999 silver with the raised areas gilded in black rhodium. It is large and heavy weighing in at 1 troy ounce. This coin was displayed at the 2015 ANA World Money Fair and is a limited mintage of only 2,000 coins.

The first coin in this series featured a wolf and caribou in a yin yang design and represents the balance of the relationship between predators and the animals they hunt as prey. The second coin, keeping with that same concept featured a grizzly bear on one side of the yin yang and a school of salmon on the other. This newest coin fits in with the yin yang theme and depicts an eagle attacking a snake that is valiantly retaliating. The 4th coin is currently in the works and will conclude this series.

If you would like to obtain one of these limited edition coins for yourself, they are available for sale here: www.bullionstop.com/ and if you use the limited time promo code WILD16, you can get a 10% discount off your order.


:star: Cover Art For Book Series :star:

Another exciting place you can now see my work is on the covers of Jenny Martin's young adult fiction series. The first novel is titled Tracked and is available for purchase from Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or direct from Penguin. The second one will be available this May and is called Marked.

I am responsible for the lion on the cover of Tracked and both the phoenix and the flames around the shield on the cover of Marked are my work. :)

:bulletred: I do apologize for the obnoxious watermarks but they have been put in place to help cut down on the prolific theft of my artwork as well as to protect the commissioned art that was designed for my clients' use. It is an intensely frustrating thing seeing a design you worked so hard to create being reposted or even sold elsewhere without your knowledge or consent and that does not even begin to cover how my clients feel about it. And that is why the watermarks exist and are going to remain. Any snarky comments regarding them will be marked as spam. :bulletred:

You are a sick and sad little kid, using copyright infringement as a weapon to take down other people's art.
Look at me, I'm Wildspiritwolf! I'm a lazy five year old and ban everyone's hard work that they did themselves because I'm an offended little baby!
Just grow up. -~-

According to deviantART's copyright policy here: about.deviantart.com/policy/co… what they did (taking and modifying another artist's work without permission from the original artist) is not acceptable behavior on this website. I do not mind at all if people wish to redraw my work for their own private drawing practice but I will put my foot down (and have the right to do so) when they begin uploading those redrawn/altered versions of my original works to the internet.

I deal with numerous cases of the theft of my art on a frustratingly regular basis. As an artist who makes a living off of their work I am not okay with allowing others to use my art in whatever ways, shapes, or forms that they wish. I do my best to cover my art in watermarks that clearly state that I don't want them being reused. I also reiterate this statement in the description below the designs. If someone chooses to ignore my requests, the policy of this website, and US copyright law, then that is their choice and I am left in a position to either allow myself and my art to be taken advantage of or step up and defend it.

Using YOUR art? Nonono. That's a complete lie. You didn't pay attention to what she said, didn't you? Of course you didn't.
She said she did all the work herself FREEHAND. Just because she also did the tribal wolf thing too, along with EVERYBODY ELSE that opts to try it doesn't mean that it's solely YOUR work alone.

Again you're just a baby about this because you're offended. You have no claim other than scaring people away from attempting this style.
This wasn't theft. You're just a big crybaby.

I just read this
  I NEED HELP!! (SOMEONE HAS COPYRIGHTED MY ART!!!)I am asking for everyone's help right now, please listen to what I've got to say. Today after I came home from school, I got a note from a bot saying that my artwork has been taken down due to "copyright claims"...... I thought it was a stupid bot spreading viruses until I realized this was real. This came as a shock to me as I would NEVER dare to steal anyone's artwork nor copy it. It said the deviant user under the name of "Elizabeth Rupp" has set this claim on me. So I instantly start searching for this person.
So I look her up and go to her DA account named WildSpiritWolf . I check her gallery, (which is mainly of wolves of mostly tribal tattoo designs). What I drew, was a wolf in a tribal design with different colours, you can see it here 
             
  (On the left) My work that has b


and i think that you went a little far about this :/ if you still don't understand then i invite you to read this Taking

obviously there are a limit of the art "copying" but what she did was taking as an inspiration and LEARN abut perspective, color, even the wolf anatomy. It was merely for growing as an artist. 

You didn't have the right to BAN her drawing and ABUSING the copyright laws, because she didn't had any bad intention when she drew this.

I hope you can fix that problem because abusing the copyright laws on DA is a bad thing and i think that you went too far about this situation :/

How exactly did my wolf resemble your wolf? I do not see the resemblance.

Um excuse me. I too drew a wolf and was taken down today for some odd reason, and I believe this account took it down for copyright. I think the username was Elizabeth Rupp

I am really upset over this. All I did was upload a wolf tribal tattoo design, and the next day POOF! it's gone. I don't know why this has copyright issues when this isn't even her own design. This design is universal. And just because the title of my drawing called "Wolf Spirit" doesn't mean it should be considered wrong. I noticed later that she did have a drawing that I used as a reference BUT DID NOT COPY IT. I needed an idea of how to start a tribal design so I used it. I probably should have credited it, but I still found it unfair. The least she could do is to tell me instead of taking it down completely. I seriously don't know what to do, this has never happened to me before because I would NEVER dare steal someone's artwork. I need my art back right now.

Your art is amazing. I wanted to ask, just to be safe, if I could use one of your tribal wolf designs as my wallpaper. Is that okay?
And this is the one i'm using:
