These are really amazing! You should do commissions, I think a lot of people here would take you up on it.
As for people complaining about the watermark... it's super common, especially with places like Tumblr or imgur, for an artist's work to get spread around uncredited. Most people just do not take the time to source art properly. It's not at all unreasonable for an artist to watermark her work, on the off chance that at some point the artwork is separated from the source. It's also not unusual for people to try to pass artwork off as their own, or to try to make a profit off of artwork that is not theirs. You can't just assume that art is a free resource to use however you'd like. Artists retain copyright over their work from the moment it's created and published. Sure you could go ahead and do whatever you want to it. But you're essentially stealing. If you're interested in using an artist's work for some other purpose, and the artist hasn't stated whether or not that's okay, it's customary to ask first. Why would you try to shame an artist for taking some precautions? Or for wanting to just share her work without literally opening it up to others to use however they'd like? I don't really understand that.
Nah, people ask very, very rarely. And if they do, most -as usual- expect it to come really, really cheap.
Or ...wait...you mean like here?
Thanks for the text. I mean, really.
I tend to only be active in very few places, and not anywhere non-art related, so this kind of reaction is completely foreign to me.
Kinda makes me regret posting them here at all.
I get the picture.:D Blender ftw.
Strangely enough I kinda like poly-by-poly modeling in blender better than sculpting(in zbrush, sculptris or blender itself).
Sculpting just turns everything I do into ...boneless-mudpeople.
The things with the screens are cintiqs, it's not like that's necessary though. Also there is traditional art too. (Or so I heard:P)
You must have awesome cropping skillz!
No seriously, aside from the watermark ..I did not indent for them to be used "as is".
I myself intended to crop them quite a bit. I just painted more, in case I had to slightly move them for better composition. (So I would not have to fix the holes then.)
So you are opposed to people cropping off your signature and posting it on this forum for people to use in their game. You posted these only for self-promotion and to get congratulated, not for people to actually use them. Gotcha, thanks a lot, see you.
You disgust me.
But I assume, that might be what you intend.
Seriously, if there had been like -actual- problems which cropping them properly and I had just been asked nicely, I probably would have even offered assistance.
But, considering that I am apparently expected to not crop them at all, I guess even if I had supplied perfectly game-ready versions, that would still be wrong.
