I'll leave it to thegreenman to respond further if he wants to. But I still think bringing up a 2 year old post to show everyone how to bootleg something someone has just said they own and want to reproduce for sale is not too cool. I don't care who's brother got the print done. We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.

Actually I think it's pretty cool of me to help expose the bootlegger to thegreenman. He's got nowhere to hide now. That dreadful pixel thief!

Yes TIKI-TONGA, I agree information should be exchanged freely, but someones personally owned images should not. And by digging up and bringing back that old thread makes it seem that you condone or encourage making your own bootleg. Especially when you posted the wallpaper image first, and then after, the link to the copied print from tikiracers collection... It's pretty obvious that the only person who had the access to supply the jpg image of the artwork was TC'er thegreenman, in the first place. The original owner of the art.

When I read your two posts with the links, i seen it like this: "Fugg it, take the .jpg scan and doit yourself, tikiracer did..."

Whether or not you meant it like that, only you would know. But that's how it looks in my eyes, and I'm pretty sure that is how the owner took it too, based on his very last reply under that link you reposted:

My link to tikicar's post very much pertained to the discussion on this thread, and I have no regrets about posting it.


TIKI-TONGA, I don't want, or expect you to regret what you have posted. I would only ask that you think clearly about what you are about to post in the future, because just as in life, there are repercussions to your actions. In this case, a few interested people including yourself, loses the possibility of owning a professionally done reprint of this art piece.

Guys it's not a big deal....If I was worried about the image being copied I would have watermarked it. It's pretty low quality, and you get out what you put in.

Like Sven said, it's not the frigin Mona Lisa.

Relax, have a Navy Grog, and Listen to some Denny....Life's too short to spend it worrying about this stuff.

Thank you thegreenman, I think some people missed this offer in your post. Now those of us who are interested can make our own professionally done reprint of this art piece.

Back when thegreenman originally posted this he had a link to the full size image that he had originally taken. I did grab a copy and made a desktop image from it, which has been my background for the last couple years. I LOVE this image and would certainly like to purchase a nice print of it if they are ever made available. I certainly wouldn't have even thought to try and make my own print from the image available - it just isn't high enough quality. I would have pulled my offer if thegreenman ever asked me to do so - not that it makes much difference, as no one has ever asked me for a copy of it.
