Milk's thread about wanting a watermark design got me thinking about creating my own.

The top row is my initials, the bottom is the roman numerals for 42.

Anybody have their own clever little watermarks they want to share?

It's an idea. Watermarks are a good way to authenticate yourself. Then again, I do my signature.

That's a cool-looking watermark, Jay! I don't have much experience with watermarks outside of DeviantArt, where the ones the site provides don't look very great and can be kind of distracting. But I DO think it's important to make sure your artwork is visibly related back to you, so people have a harder time stealing it!

Thanks, I must admit I took a bit of inspiration from DC's classic Bullet logo

I have a watermark, which I have embedded in the logo of PA:

In case it's not apparent:



It's a design I created wayyyy back in the day (2002?) and used to doodle at the bottom of my drawings. Just decided to keep it and hide it a bit more carefully now. And yes, it actually does have some origins and relevance in PA :)

I just use the logo of the comic it's from. I think the "DO NOT USE ME" watermarks are mostly a waste.
I've removed many over the years and the ones that are intrusive enough - to not be worth removing - ruin the image anyways.

I like watermarks as artist signatures.
That's what I use them for.

Better than a name actually. No one really wonders "Who made this?"
Mostly they ask "Where is this from?"
