Hi, I am new to this site, somehow I came across your unique and fascinating work. How do you keep from other people stealing it. This site allows you to download and copy these images. Are you OK with that ? I am askiing because I am surprised. Most other sites prevent that from happening. Shelle
Hi Shelle, Deviantart has built in features which control how much a user wants to share their work. You have the option to not allow downloads if you don't want to, or if you do allow downloads you can attach a "Creative Commons License" to your image which restricts how a person can use the artwork. This doesn't stop theft, but I think it helps to control it somewhat. I allow people to download my art for personal use as a wallpaper, but I do not allow commercial use unless I am paid. People are always going to steal art, especially digital art.
