I'm sorry I've had to write my name across my own image and ruin it, but it's been stolen so many times now, I'm sick of reporting people. Deviant Art users in particular seem especially prone to using other people's work.
It's been used on countless blogs for the Chinese New Year and most have asked first.
However, it was recently used commercially by an Argentinian newspaper who seem to have no shame that they are stealing people's work for their own profit.
Highest Position #1 -- I'm speechless!
Please please please comment if you visit. And please ask before you use the image. I wont mind - I just want to know where it is being used.
Applied the Fractalius filter to my Hypno Tiger image and played around with about a million other things in photoshop.
This also marks my 100th upload to Flickr.
