NDK 08 - Amaterasu by zetallis NDK 08 - Amaterasu by zetallis
One of the 11 designs that I did for NDK this year. The theme was Japanese mythos. Also for their mascots, the males have white hair and a black streak, and females have black hair with a white streak.

Last one! This was the main image for the con, appearing on the general pre-reg badge, conbook, t-shirts, ads.. probably more places that I'm not aware of...

I love your art so much! It reminds me of my favorite game Okami I think it would be cool to see some of the characters from that game drawn in your fantastic style.

I forgot to mention that the main character is actually Amaterasu and its based on her legend.

Sorry to hear it is not available, if you print it soon, I'd love to have one, I'll be checking out here, since you're more active.
Good luck on sales!

I had this one up for auction last year in Sept-Oct and out of fairness to those who bought it, I won't be selling it online for probably another year. Doesn't seem fair to make it readily available for someone that had to bid on a piece, then turn around and sell it to $8 for everyone else. So I only sell them at the few cons I go to in person at the moment.

So...
I apologize if I offended you, Stephanie Kao.
I like your work, I wanted a piece of it, I want to pay for it.
That's all, no biggie. I still wait for YOUR answer.
Thank you.

You did come off as awfully rude and arrogant, bragging about how nicely you can steal images with your plotter. =onnaevilsmith stated it correctly. While images are free for viewing here, and you can't regulate people downloading them for private viewing, that doesn't make them 100% free. The artist still retains all the rights (unless legal measures were taken to transfer those rights). Some artists do share their work as free items. Others do not. And the images I post certainly are not free for use however anyone wishes, especially not to be used for someone else's profits. Just because someone ignores copyright law, doesn't make it free in any way shape or form. I hope you understand that.

Also, a print of this is now available for online purchase. But thank you for the interest.

Rude? Yes and i apologized; sorry that onnaevilsmith had to point that out, he is right.

Where could I find the online purchase? And... you still make pendants?
Thank you!

Thank you for your apology.

Usually when I do sell prints online, it's just here through DA. Pendants can be found here [link] when I have the chance to make and post them. Though at the moment I'm mostly selling them at cons.

Thank you very much!
Your prices are outrageously low.
Truth is, i spend more time searching for clients than drawing, maybe that's why i sell for 5-10 times higher than you.
I got no talent either.
Hope I expressed myself properly:(.
Have fun working!

I'm taken as arrogant by most people that don't know me. I'm not used to pleasantries and chit-chat; some people are like that. I already apologized.

Stylish, imho. I got a plotter home that feels good with high quality paper and I'm Romanian so stealing is in my blood, you must realize posting your work here makes it 100% free for anyone that wants it. But I'm impressed and I would like to ask you if you could give me a chance to buy it from you. I'm not rich, but you deserve payment for your work, i know i charge a lot for mine, even if it's very rare that i get payed. I hope I don't sound arrogant, please reply if you see this; I'm waiting to see what you come up with at NDK this year.
Have fun!

Hey, how's it going? 8D

You do have a point that anyone with the right tools can copy someone's artwork posted online. But if you are making copies of her work and then making money off of them, or otherwise using the art in ways you shouldn't be, it is illegal.

Telling the artist that you are making free copies of her work, when this artist sells this artwork to help support herself, is sort of a tactless thing to do. It's like telling a band that you'd rather pirate their music than support the band.

My message was: "the world can steal from you, I'll show you how easy it is" And: " I'm not stealing, I want to buy your work!"
Warning+request to buy. You think I would of posted so much if I would of downloaded it? Google her work, you will see it has been stolen already.
"Telling the artist that you are making free copies of her work", bad:(.
I got her main site bookmarked for about a week and read a lot about her and her work and traveling, since she shares that.
Bad for me not to mail her directly, i regret that.
