Sitting Wolf Sketch Commission by WildSpiritWolf Sitting Wolf Sketch Commission by WildSpiritWolf
This is :iconmecunningham: 's completed sketch of a happy sitting wolf for her girlscout troop's use as a t-shirt design.


: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:



I am open for sketch commissions! Only $15 for a single animal and $7 for each additional animal in the same picture. To have it digitally colorized is free of charge. Please send me a DevNote if you're interested.


Pencil: Pentel 0.5mm Mechanical Pencil
Colorization: Adobe CS4

Please do not copy, trace, reproduce, or alter in any way without given permission.

I'm not trolling as much as I believe that it's not steal or trace worthy, the artist is taking too many precautions and looks like a douche.

Not that I expect you to care, but Wild makes her living off her commissions. She pays her bills and feeds herself with the money she makes from them. When someone steals any one of her pieces, its taking food out of her mouth and clothes off her back. She gets a few hundred theft reports a week, if not more. And while YOU may not think this is worthy of being stolen, you would be amazed at how many people WOULD steal it if not for the watermarks, and how many still will. Many of the designs in her gallery have a very deep meaning to the people who commission them.

So, yeah. Its a huge issue for her. You dont like it? Sorry, but you being a royal dick isnt going to change a damn thing about it. The watermarks are there to protect her work and her clients.

And before you say then she shouldnt post her work, this is her working portfolio. And she has no issues not posting if the client asks her not to. I'm sure there as just as many that she DOESNT post as the ones she does.



TL;DR: You not liking it isnt going to change anything. Theres a back button for a reason. Use it next time instead of being an ass.

Yo yo yo, bro, I see what you're saying but I don't understand how you can classify taking a picture with limitless copies as stealing, especially when any money that has been made by the drawing has already been paid to her via commission.
I could post any one of her drawings on my tumblr and say it was mine and literally nothing would happen, no harm would be caused.
So what is the issue, I don't understand?

Taking an image that does not belong to you without permission, regardless of whether or not you claim it as yours, is stealing by definition. Period. Its not yours. You dont have the right to do whatever you want with it just because you like it. You should have learned that in grade school. Never mind the fact that its also illegal. Just because its on the internet does not change the rules of the game. It is still theft.

Every time someone steals one of her images, she loses money simply because then there is a version out there to be repeatedly taken and reused by other people, people who might otherwise commission her.


And yes, something would happen. You would be found out, reported and your possibly tumblr shut down for copyright infringment. If the resources were there, you could found, be taken to court and sued. You would lose and have to pay a massive fine or possibly even serve jail time for it for breaking the law.

Again, you say it is stealing but it is not a physical entity, if I print something out online, it still exists in both forms. And again, I'm curious what would be the point of "stealing" a commission of someone else's wolf or dog characters? I don't see what there is to be gained, I don't believe she would even lose a commission over it because anyone willing to "steal" a copy of a picture wasn't willing to pay in the first place. Yes, I may be found out and serve jail time (fucking yeah right), but what negative effects have been caused to her, absolutely nothing. I understand why you might think the way you do but you're being overcautious about something you don't need to be so cautious about.

Fantastic. Good to know. Thanks for that insight. You can go away now.







No, seriously. Dont reply to this. Just stop talking now. Thanks.
