Not sure what to do about watermarking, I need to do it but I don’t want to distort the image. So far I’m just popping the site address in one of the panels, but I need to do something better. Any ideas?
Also, I’m thinking of doing a more long term web comic project, but I’m not sure about it at the moment. I don’t really have faith in my writing abilities. We’ll see.
I like where it is now, it’s pretty nondescript, but it does look like it could be easily removed. I fucking hate that people are stealing your comics, because, well, they’re brilliant, and you deserve full credit.
You could put it on a character’s body though, like, on the darkest of the hands. That way it’d be difficult to remove due to the ‘coloring’, and if it were fairly small (theoctopusdance without the .tumblr.com part) it wouldn’t really take away from the comic whatsoever. c: Just an idea!
Keep up the comics though, they’re lovely.
And yeah, I think that’s the best idea, just popping the title somewhere it can’t easily be removed :) Good point!

I used to give a lot of thought to this problem, having been ripped off many times myself. Nowadays I just write the url in, and that’s that. If people are going to steal work and they have access to Photoshop, there ain’t much I can do to stop them. And hey, I draw comics because I love doing them, and my site will always have the latest stuff that I do.
And when I see my stuff on another site, I just remember, this is the internet, where everything is shared for better or worse.
