Running Red Wolf Tribal Design by WildSpiritWolf Running Red Wolf Tribal Design by WildSpiritWolf
This is :icontoon3h: 's completed tribal tattoo commission of a running red wolf with an ink splattered tail.


: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:


Please do not copy, trace, alter, or redistribute this anywhere in any way, shape, or form!

This design was created specifically for the commissioner's use only. If you would like a design custom created for you, drop me a note or see my FAQ journal entry here: [link] if you need more info.



Lineart: Micron Pen Size 03

I wish you didn't have to use watermarks to protect it, but hey, there are assholes out there. I can still depict that it is an awesome piece of art!

I'm not mad, I'm irritated because of people like you who fail to read before they comment. Or read and still feel the need to be jackasses for no obvious reason other than to be one. I consider Wild a friend and I defend my friends.

You're weclome to your opinion, but you dont need to be an asshole when you say it.

Go read the disclaimer. Your opinion has been noted and disregarded for reasons stated in disclaimer. Bitching and being an asshole about it will not change anything. Wild has the right to protect her as she sees fit.

Yes, I am well aware. But it is still my opinion that these anti-theft precautions ruin the picture. I'm letting Wild know in hopes that it will be reflected upon, that is all.

You're welcome to your opinion, but again... its noted and disregarded for the reasons mentioned in her disclaimer. She doesnt like having to have them either, but she has the right to protect her business and her clients as she sees fit and this is the best way to do it. She has seen a dramatic drop in theft of her work since using them. You can whine about them all you want, but they will remain because they protect her business and make her clients feel better.

The clients get a watermark free version or the actual art if they wish, so in the end it doesnt really matter.

It's definitely not the best way to do it, but it certainly is a way. A painfully ugly way to do it. It is also a way to shy away potential customers, and also a dampener to free advertisement. She has indeed a right to do it that way, as much as I have a right to disregard her art for it. It's mutually disregarded. I realize that "theft" is something thats worrying the artist, but some of the "thieves" don't bother with editing the signature, so people like me can see it on a random site and find out who this person is so I can find more of the beautiful work being done. I'm crying out for the desecration of free art that is only getting more and more popular in a hope that someone somewhere hears it and reflects upon it for a better way regardless of what the majority (you) continuously tell me is "in her right to do". I know that already, and that is why I am voicing my opinion, so it can be regarded or disregarded by the artists and art appreciators at their discretion.

She has been given no other option but to do it this way. She has tried smaller, less obvious marks. She has left comments on her description not to take. Didnt help anything. She's been backed into a corner at this point. Her commissions are how she makes her living, how she puts food in her mouth and clothes on her back. When someone takes her work and copies it without her permission, its stealing all of that from her. Theft is a real, huge issue for her. If you have a "better" way for her, then tell her. Dont sit there and bitch about the watermarks because you dont like them, tell her how she could do them differently that will still protect her work and clients but allow third parties to enjoy her work better.

Wild's art is not "free". Yes, its available to look at and enjoy without having to pay a fee to do so, but it is not something that is available for everyone and any one to use as they want.

She can do what she wants ofcourse, I'm not gonna force anyone to do anything. But I will still voice my opinion on it no matter what you say. It's not like I even know this lady. This is the internet, no need to take it so personal. I have said what I want to say, and you're only repeating yourself now anyway so I'm ending this argument for the sake of not repeating myself. If I had a better way I would have told you already, I'm just giving feedback.

I never understnad these people. I mean, sure the watermark is "in the way" but it's never bothered me. It doesn't change the quality of the art at all and most of the time it never really crosses my mind when I look at her art.

The watermark is in the way for a reason though too. Like you, I can ignore it though I can understand how its distracting for some people, but again thats the point of it. I just dont get their need to be jerks about it.

True :/ It's like yelling at DVD producers about wrapping DVDs in the plastic wrap before you buy it or something. Just deal with it, it won't be there if you buy one.

I hope you're joking. Taking necessary anti-theft precautions should never result in the work being called 'trash'. Show a little respect for the artist.

How can I appreciate the art if my view is blocked off? It's outright ugly to look at those watermarks. The art is probably really beautiful, but it's being ruined as by a kid with a markerpen. I understand that it is well within the artists right to put it there so no one would want to steal it, but there is a side effect to being "careful".
