Oh yeah, I'm on deviantArt too so I know what you mean ^^ And I totally agree, some people are so incredibly talented over there - I can't draw or paint to save my life so I'm bowing in front of their talent (and patience! lol). I only post graphic resources there though. I like deviantArt but I wished people would comment more, most of the time they fav your work or download your textures but never leave a comment, which is a bit frustrating I think.
Your welcome! I thought you might like it :)
If I may, you should really have a livejournal account; it's such a nice and fun place to be and there a loads of communities for fanart, icons, and fandoms :) And it's really a good place to promote your fanart and meet other fanartists ;)
I don't know if you or Rhia own an account @ livejournal.com, but I'm currently hosting a challenge at Creative Daily; a community for wallpaper fanarting :) If you guys don't feel like joining but still want to enter it's perfectly fine, you don't need to be a member in order to participate, you just have to love fanarting! lol
I WANT ONE I WANT ONE :D
I tried to make an icon...and failed - i can NOT work on really small scale. Its impossible.
I think i will stick to doing what i do best :)
BTW, sorry i wasnt online much today - stupid english coursework :(
......I will....not be on tommorrow. Darn. Dentist *shudders*
I will be on here asap :)
I don't know if you meant that you came across Erin Nicole's site since I've put her link up on my profile to credit her for the icon I use or if you recognize me somehow and meant my own site (I'm actually Marilyne from Shadow of the Day) but nevertheless, her, me and other people are trying to stop art theft so we all have the same goal anyway ;)
I just want to say that I was pleasantly surprised to find other fanartists on twilightsaga.com. I don't want to demean this site or sound judgmental but I don't know it that well and I really thought most of the wallpapers were posted by people who didn't know that they were pissing some artists off lol (because most of the time they don't mean to steal, they just don't understand or don't take the time to read rules :P). I'm so sorry you're having trouble with people reposting your stuff too. I'll try to help the best I can :)
We (my friend and I) recently had (and sadly still have) the same reposting problems on Fanpop.com, which really is a lost cause if you ask me. But it's not the first time I come across twilightsaga.com and I've been able to get lots of wallpapers removed in the past (back when the photo section was public, not members only) and I'm planning to do the same now - if the members don't cooperate. Actually, I'd recommend you directly contact the admins with a list of all the wallpapers/textures links that people have reposted without your permission. I know it's time consuming, believe me, I started building up a list of all of my friends' wallpapers as we speak and it's taking me forever lol, but it's the only way that really works.
I don't know if you guys changed admins, but the last time I contacted them with my list of links they immediately deleted the stolen wallpapers. So it's worth trying :)
I really hope all of this can make a difference somehow.
I just created a new group on Twiland called the Official Leah Clearwater Fan Club and am wondering if I could use your promotional banner (below) that you made for the Leah Clearwater Group there. I also posted the link to the site below, to kind of see what it would look like, but if you don't want me to use it, I will delete it right away. Thank you.
