I actually quit using watermarks after showed me how they could photoshop my watermark out of the picture.

My art isn't worth protecting -_-

Also, watermarks get in the way pf my drawings.

I don't like them because they go right over the drawing and ruin it. I would rather do my signature in the corner or something.

My friend's work got stolen,
the thief somehow removed her DA watermark from her work and posted it as their own ^^;

I don't really get how they managed it though but, I guess sometimes watermarks don't help...

I agree on that. Got enough stuff.. :< stolen. or someone cutt the part with the watermark out etc. 
That's a shitty feeling.. such watermarks are useless..

Yeah.
I mean, the older one was sort of okay,
but I think the newer one is easier to get rid of,
and it's sort of hard to see against the drawings done on notebooks and sketch papers.

DA's watermarks are abnoxious to me because they're huge and smack dab in the middle of the picture.
So I use my own custom watermarks, not just because they're smaller and less in the way, but because it adds a little extra personalization. Nothing screams 'YOU!' like a personal logo. :meow:

I like the stamp! If I may ask, though, what is a water mark?

Under your picture when you are submitting your art, there is a checkbox that you can check, and it's written on it : Add watermark. Hope I helped you! :)

First off, I like your stamp :)
Second, do you have any advice for protecting written works? As to the best of my knowledge there is no such thing as a watermark for literature or other written pieces :(

Thanks for explaining but even. Though you do have a watermark on like I did with a photo it still cropped up on 3
Different websites with the watermark cut off.

meh, not sure if I should put some watermarks in my drawings cause it's very ugly and annoying = =
and I really don't care if people upload my stuff somewhere else (that's why I just add my signature), I just don't approve tracing/ modifications and saying that was made by someone that is not me :c

well I think watermarks are good, maybe not too huge ones, but smaller. it helps when proof is needed. :)

uh all right, I added a small mark in my new drawing, [link] do you think it's appropriate? >.<

:iconizka197:
izka197 Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2012
yeah I think it looks fine :) though you might want to make it white, or white with a 1 px stroke arround them to be more visible? you could then change opacity to arround 50-60% if it will be too light. not sure, but now it's visible but not 100% readable at least on my monitor ><

This is what I've been saying to alot of people these days, Watermarks maybe ugly at times but they protect your work, so I agree with this stamp :nod:.

With todays technology watermarks don't work, plus they make your gallery ugly.

nope, big ones or these DA ones maybe yes, but small and good ones no. I know what I'm talking about. my art was stolen. Now I'm putting small watermarks of my name and links to ma DA account on every small piece. art thieves are everywehere.
you will think the same till someone stelas your art. and you won't have any proof to tell it's yours. believe me. or no, do what you want, that's only my opinion ;)

*checks your stuff* Oh, those little signatures? I guess they are ok, but you know how easy it is to remove them =|
Anyway, my art was never stolen (at least I never caught anyone) so I guess I don't need the watermark ^^

izka197 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2009
yes I use little watermarks and write a link to my account too. it helps I know, but it's better than nothing ;) and it's kind of watermark too :3 protects more than nothing, and yeah that's it =P okay! lucky you ^^'
