AIght well its like this, i designed a backround of two school girls sitting on stone stairs, I posted it on my friends local server (andyscrib.tk) and someone that was looking at it apperiantly saved it to there computor and started posting it on actually anime website. The only reason i didnt post it myself was i was sending it in to a magazine for a contest. I got it back after a month of so and i ended up getting 4th in this contest. I started sending it to websites ,but to my surprise they eather allready had it or rejected it saying that i copied it form someone, and it wasnt my work. So i went back and eddited on a -mike- in the top left corner so that people would know that it is my work, and not some snot nosed kid. So im asking you guys if u could, if u ever happen to see a wallpaper pic of two school girls sitting on stone steps (red) can u post the web adress here for me so i can send a letter to the site creater adn have them possable change it for me, thanks.

well i wouldnt mind helping you out, but i doubt we'll actually see the picture around here, you might try posting it here so that we actually know what it looks like?

Most of the artists here take images and extract the characters to put on their own backrounds, or taking screens from the shows themselves and editing, but no one outright "copies" someones work.

when you post theres an option that says file attachments just below the post icons, use that.

I think its pretty good, colors seem a bit odd to me. Never seen it before though.

I seriously doubt that you are the original creator of this piece of work. Why? For one, I have the very same image saved to my hard drive, and have had it for over a year now. Second of all, were this true, I feel that you would have persued it with more interest and more vigor than just poking around a website or two. Want proof? Here's the original image. Oh, and for FYI's sake, I didn't get this off a website, I got it from a friend that got it from a friend. So... this image has been around for quite some time. Again, I seriously doubt that you are the original artist.

Aaahhh... Well, be careful of how you represent yourself then. Your words can easily be misconstrued. Take for example, what I said. *shrug*


Also, for another thing, You really didn't do much to the image except for add a sepia tone to it. It's a good idea, but... that's all? That's it? Nothing more? Not, maybe extracting the girls and adding them to an entirely different background?

I do apologize if I've hurt your feelings but that's how I give advice. Brutally. If it's given in turn I may get my feelings hurt for a moment, but then strive to improve whatever may be wrong. In short, it's how I expect advice on my wallpapers to be given and I do the same in return. *shrug*

It looks nice and simplcity sometimes is better than having really vigours colours and cool design...you just have to know the theme and feel taht you want to give to the wallpaper.

Well I think you should put your name in the bottom where the task can cover it so that we know who made it but not to remind us evertime we look at it. :)
