:thumb67142069: his "work"
Mermaid Jewellery by MySweetDarkness mine
I hate that.... I'll leave this site....


Hi all,

How are you ? I'm fine...
Sorry, I'm not very present on dA (and internet in general) for the moment. You know Xmas, work and family.....
Sometimes things are difficult but generally I'm happy. I finally move on December 27th :dance:




Just want to talk about a precise matter.
Somebody contacted me to acquire one of my images. We exchanged several e-mails to speak about the image, the dimensions.... When I have finally spoken about the price, I no more had news.
I just want to say to all people that our art is not free. If you want one of my images, you have to pay. It is the minimum !!!!!
I can spend several hours to realise a photomanipulation... Would you like to work without being paid ? Do you buy your bread without paying it ? NO ! Then, why do you think of being able to acquire my art without paying or little ? It is unbelievable !!!! I think people don't respect my art... don't respect me as an artist....


:heart:
Mélanie

Bummer about the ripper. I had that happen to me as well and the guy was even selling prints of stuff he created using mine and someone else's work to create a ew piece. I contacted the admins and he still has an account. The thumbnail image is still on his journal but when clicked it says forbidden so that's good I guess. :shrug:

I get a lot of people disappearing too after I mention my rates for work. And I am not exactly charging what I should be either. I did one "free" cover for a band, which at the time I needed exposure but won't be doing that again. Even though they were cool to work with, still way too much work! ;)

I looked at it and then i saw the mermaid and i was thinking, "i know that one:| ", then browsing in my own gallery to see if i was not mistaken en there she was, so i filled in a violation report. Its also no the first time something like this happens . so I don't waiste any words and just fill in a report , in the hope that the DA admins will take care off it:)

Tu es gentille... Moi je ne donne même plus la chance... Je rapporte aux admins et je pose des questions après... Il s'attribue ton travail, il a enlevé ton watermark/info de copyrights, ne mentionne pas ou il a volé l'image...

En tout cas tu es pas mal plus gentille que je le serais à ta place.

J'espère que ça sera réglé très rapidement!

I've had a similar problem once.
Well, it was a bit more complicated then that:

A band contacted me and said that someone had given them a photo of mine, and told them it was hers and they could use it for free. So they used it in the artwork of their cd, and now they were asking me if they could still use it, with my permission. I told them they could if they payed me (and I didn't ask that much).
They used another picture... (probably from someone else that was impressed by the band and the fact that they wanted to use his/her picture that much that he/she gave it away for free)

Long story short,
I agree with you, people don't need to expect art te be free. Artists need to make a living too!

Coucou!

Alors pour ton probleme je ne vois pas du tout car je n'ai pas eu le meme... Il faudrai peut être tenter de leur faire comprendre un peu plus directement... par mail ou je ne sais quoi. Tu n'as pas un numéro ou tu peux les appeler?

En tout cas tu n'as pas la poisse au complet vu que bientot ton demenagement et de ce que j'avais pu lire tu attendais que ça donc bientot nouvelle vie qui commence :)

Plein de courage et de bisous :hug:

Bah je fais aller, mais bon c'est moyen, ma vie de couple se brise tout doucement alors pas trop le moral, mais bon je me refugie dans les creas, ça m'evade, je pense moins à mes soucis... quoique c'est pas toujours bon non plus, car je n'affronte pas les réels problemes...
sinon peut-être un projet d'illustration, mon premier, mais absolument rien de sur alors je verrai, pour le moment j'etudie le sujet... je sais pas si je suis capable ou pas, je doute tellement de tout, mais à côté de ça faut absolument que je bouge, que je fasse ce que j'aime, mon boulot de vendeuse je peux plus le supporter non plus alors bon... oui je sais c'est bien tristounet ce que je te raconte ma pauvre melanie mdrrr
allez je te fais un sourire :)
je vais me reprendre, promis :)
gros gros bisoussssssss

Je peux amplement comprendre celà et puis de toute manière D.A (même si parfois il peut y paraitre) n'est pas un concours de deviations le plus posté donc tu as tout le temps pour celà :)

J'espere que ta reprise ne s'est pas trop mal passé ^^

A bientôt Mélanie :hug:
