Fractal Tiger

Newer Older

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.

Many thanks to Craptastic for the heads up on the Plugin from Redfield.

For anyone interested - the original image is here:

    hi Richard,
    Used your fractal tiger in a comilation with a dragon... will send you the image if your interested. Don't know the copyright status of the dragon pic yet. I'm a retired American living in Thailand and we are decorating our modest little cafe (Internet Cafe) I never thought about what to do if someone asked to buy it but it is you image and I will respect your wishes as to how I use it.... If you like the drangon/tiger pic I will chect the copyright of the drangon to see if its free. Right now just decorating our little business.... I will give full credit to you and give anyone who asks your name.... Let me know if you want me to email my compilation to you.

    I'm on deviantArt and I would never steal someone else's work. That is a horrible way to achieve personal creativity. I too have to put a watermark on my photos and I disabled the downloads, the only good way to insure that no one steals them. Even though they could right click and save, at least the watermark is in place.

    This beautiful beyond words. I love fractal art. Thank you for sharing :))

    Beautiful! I would like to recommend to my Director that we use this image in conjunction with a "book chat" for the novel, "The Life of Pi" by Yann Martel, at the public library where I work. When I searched for images from the boo kjacket, your image came up. May I request a single time usage? We print about 1,000 copies of our quarterly newsletter, and would naturally credit you. Thank you. -Baz

    Thanks again everyone for the kind words.

    Re using the image for the Life of Pi book chat - please feel free to do so but I feel it importantly geeky enough to mention that the tiger here is Siberian and not a Bengal Tiger as in the book.

    Wow! That is importantly geeky. A dilemma! Thanks on both counts - Bazza

    Richard, your tiger photo is incredible. You don't mind your photos shared on FB do you??

    Hi Richard! I had an ayahuasca experience, and I saw a very similar tiger. I wrote a document with my experience, and I'm planning to publish it. Would I use your image for the cover of it, please? Thanks in advance :)

  16. Luis Eduardo Vivero 22 months ago | reply

    If you allow me to do this, I'll put your name in the credits for it, off course.

    Hi Richard! I sent you an message by flickr with my email. I'm trying to reach you outside of this network, but it's not being easy to find you. My text is in spanish, and it's ready. I'm looking for you, so I can use your image for the cover, of you are ok with it. Thanks and regards.
