Ok, seriously now… enough with the whole “I’m a massive victim of internet piracy with my drawings”…
You draw some pictures that are only perhaps valuable for a specific useage that the average person on the street would never actually pay for…. Movies and music albums on the other hand have an actual value if packaged correctly for the average joe on the street and are catered for them specifically.
If you want to sell your artwork to the average person on the street you need to put them in a frame and sell them as physical copies somewhere and stop bitching that you have uploaded it to the internets and someone has saved it to their hardrive.
I don’t mean to be rude but a couple of drawings in paintshop pro or photoshop is a very specific item and only commercially viable to some entity who wants to perhaps use it for their specific business useage as a logo or advert, banner etc…(or they wouldn’t need to pay for it in the first place and just draw it themselves).
If you have been specifically commissioned to draw something by a person or company, then you draw it, give it to them & get paid, simple…. After that it belongs to that company as you sold it and if someone else pirates it it has nothing to do with you.
What I think is more likely here is that there’s probably not a whole bunch of companies lining up around each other to commission your artwork and you are just drawing a bunch of stuff, uploading it to some image stock library or aggregator in the hope that some company wants to use your picture on their website or advertising campaign and then pay you lots of money for it. If that’s the case and any of your artwork actually gets used for anything profitable then the image library or aggregator would seek the funds from that entity by threatening them with a lawsuit or similar action.
Actually if that is the case and the average joe on the street wants to right click and save as on your pics then you should feel good about that and encourage it, thats how you get a market and reach people… why should they pay for it if they not going to do anything except look at it? You think you are Picasso… youd need to die first, wait for a hundred years and have art worthy of that status im afraid
So this brings me back to the point… how is this damaging you so intensely that you feel as enraged by the whole internet piracy thing as you appear to be… or is it a bit of ego tripping telling us about you fantastic ability and how much money you are potentially missing you because large corporations around the globe are pirating your works and using them in large advertising campaigns?
EDIT: wow this appeared to be a massive flame on you personally... i apologise, it wasnt a personal attack as much as a bullshit splicer... i donty like bullshit much ... sorry
