Dark Angel Experiment by I-Am-Lady-Timeless

(Finally the scroll bar works. Sorry about that...) This is a brilliant piece with lots of originality hard work gone into it. Although...

If anyone has any confusion as to why I've put watermarks on even the worst of my art, here's the reason; I've found my picture being used on a number of websites, illegally stolen from me. I've had one of my best pieces distributed by a framing company, a fetish piece used on a medical paraphillia page (which, to be fair, would have been perfectly fine if they'd just asked), and another piece containing an underwear-clad body on (of all things) a thrush medical page. The worst was finding myself on a Spanish porn site, with no contact address to get rid of it. 

If people asked, the majority of times I wouldn't mind at all. It's great publicity, but that's me in a lot of pictures. I do not have thrush (or any other embarrassing disease), and I most certainly am not such a slut that I'd willingly be masturbation material for a country inhabited by people I statistically have problems with (not racism, just the vast majority of perverts trying to break up my marriage or do things on camera for them are from the Spanish-speaking countries).

For this reason, I've had it. I can't afford a lawyer, I've been forced to delete a lot of my best and time consuming work, and even petitioned Google to delete a lot of images that can still be searched for (for far, no word back). Because of thieves and perverts, I can no longer create art that I both enjoy and am somewhat good at. It's an awful situation to be in, so as a precaution, I've watermarked most of my content on the site. Those that cannot have been hidden from non-members, and the remaining are frankly too crap for anyone to use.

That said, this is a brilliant lesson to not just me, but all artists; even if you don't think you work is good enough, people WILL use it. Everyone should at least watermark all work, especially those containing nudity.
