CHALLENGE: Disney's latest princess campaign is "I Am A Princess". For this challenge, I encourage you to make a graphic that is inspired by the "I Am A Princess" mantra! You can use any of the Disney ladies, and no, they don't have to be official canon princesses. :) The whole point of this campaign is to show that ladies are ALL princesses at heart.

I am a Princess.
I am brave sometimes.
I am scared sometimes.
Sometimes, I am brave even when I’m scared.

I believe in loyalty and trust.
I believe loyalty is built on trust.
I try to be kind, I try to be generous.
I am kind even when others are not so generous.

I am a Princess.
I think standing up for myself is important.
I think standing up for others is more important.
But standing with others is most important.

I am a Princess.
I believe compassion makes me strong.
Kindness is power.
And family is the tightest bond of all.

I have heard I am beautiful.
I know I am strong.
I am a Princess.
Long may I reign.


GUIDELINES:
  • You may make more than one submission..
  • You may do a graphic 'set' if you wish. (Ala Tumblr, including more than one graphic.)
  • Recommended graphic sizes:
    For singles: 500x300, 500x600
    For sets: 245x245, 245x148

Bwahaha seriously? Well, that's life sadly. XD Wouldn't be surprised to find some stuff on Etsy. I know I've seen some of it on Fanpop. It's just part of being a graphics artist unfortunately. I know some people have been taking Vi's stuff and selling it as iphone cases! ><

The selling it part really drives me up a wall. Its like when you see those versions of Brianna Garcia's princesses making faces on some phone case on Amazon, and you just KNOW that's not approved.

I have seen a couple of yours that link back to your tumbler though...I'll at least give Pinterest that much. People don't always link back like they should, but they DO have the option. In theory, clicking on the pinterest pin should always take you back to the original source.

That's, my friends, is the importance of watermarking your art. You can't put it in the sides or corners because it can get cropped out, and you don't wanna put it obnoxiously large all over the person's face. You're not gunna get any where near as much publicity. (Unless you just don't want people looking at your other work.) You want to put it close to the person, but in the background. Not on the skin; never there because just no.

You want to make it a medium color and between a 10 and 20 font size so that it's still readable when it's distorted. (Anything not saved as a .PNG gets grainy, and most people don't know that.)

You want both your URL/name and the domain the original art can be found as your watermark (bob @ DeviantArt; Erin | facebook; marleyssocks.tumblr.com--avoid abbreviations).

People are gunna repost your stuff just 'cause they don't understand why they shouldn't and want to share your work. But it's not a bad thing. I've discovered a lot of awesome blogs because they've been re-posted and re-tagged to things I track, but the watermark was still there. I thought, "Wow, I really like this; I wonder if this person makes more like it." **browse browse browse.** And if people end up selling it? PSSH, guess who's gunna be gettin' all the fame? People are a lot less likely to steal someone's work if it's obvious where it came from, but if it happens, that's just all good news for you. Congrats; you're famous. :D
