I like the pose, his leaning forward is different, and it brings me into the picture, as if he's about to tell me something. Great capt...

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community


A friend had told me the other day that he had seen one of my pieces on a porn site, but he didn't remember which one.

Well, I found it today. The problem is without paying a membership to the site I can't figure out a way to contact them to remove the piece. And it looks like this all happened early in 2015.

The piece in question is 'A Lovely View'. It is NSFW.

So, now I'm going through and putting the dreaded watermark on my work, especially the nudes (sigh). But I'm not sure how to go about getting my work taken off of the porn site, and using the google image match feature I'm going hunting to see if any others have been stolen and posted without my permission.

If anyone has any helpful suggestions I'd appreciate hearing them.

The model and I are wondering what you have in mind for the picture. He is thrilled that someone else wants to use him.

Hope your holidays were wonderful.

When I was working on that picture I was playing with the idea of making it a BW. Would love to see what you do with it. Jerimiah is really thrilled that someone else likes his naked body. You should have seen his face light up when I asked him if you could use on of his pictures, and that it was one of the full body nudes.

Hope all is going well with you.
txhern aka Richard C.
