Well, I never thought that I would face such problem.
Although situation gets like it gets.
I think every talented person faced problem when his work gets different appearances over the Web. Someone says that it is popularity; someone tries to fight it as much as possible.
But I am not great at craft, photo and not great collector!
But I receive all the time messages from my friends and people who I don’t know with links to my pictures, which other people claim their own, which other people use to participate at contests or using them for other personal stuff.
For example this or this. How am I supposed to react? I’m getting sad.
Honestly, I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to see my dolls at album covers of bands whose music I dislike, with manipulation I don't like and more than that I don’t want to see how other people claim my dolls as theirs.
I don’t want to put watermarks on my pictures, that will close half of it, because it’s ugly, and there is no artistic beauty, that will deserve it.
I have already minimized number of my pictures at the Internet and I rarely load them even at my personal blog. It seems that is not enough.
I don’t want to believe that only way to avoid this issue is to stop sharing at all.
