Baroness Gallery

This pic is as old as the internet itself:

many many years ago, I processed the hell out of it to clean it up, and make it look less like a "dirty scan" from an old comic printed on newspaper, but that PC died and I lost it. Since this is a boring Sunday, I went ahead and re-cleaned it.

i dont really care that this image came off my website (notice the avery mailing labels as a background?), but isnt it kinda silly to put a logo on it so people dont steal a stolen picture? kinda like putting a car alarm on a stolen car.

 

 

hehe, really i dont care, just find it kinda ironic.

 

Like the mention in the gallery, those are pictures you can find on the web. You have to understand that as everything that's posted on the web, if the original author of the image/picture have any problem with the diffusion of one of the pics he himself let loose on the web, he can always e-mail the webmaster and request removal with proof of ownership (in my case, a fansite, unless the story seems a little fishy I wouldn't even think twice and remove it)... this is a fansite so it's not really a problem and I'd remove in a heartbeat anything that any original author feel inapropriate.. it's not like i'm making money out of this... but anyway you're cool with it so... let me just explain to you the point of watermarking since you don't get it (it's not to "appropriate" a picture to call your own that you watermark an item...)

 

Some people will say otherwise, but watermarking is used to prevent bandwidth stealing (people linking to an image directly on the server of someone)... so if I was to steal the pictures from your own website to redistribute here on this fan website, and cause you bandwidth "stealing" by posting in my own gallery pics from another server, you wouldn't be happy (see, that pic is 60k, so let's say 200 visitors come to my website everyday and check out this pic, and I "steal" it right from your server by linking directly since you didn't even watermark it (would look as my own), that's 12 megs of bandwidth daily right there) ... that's the basic point of watermarking your images on the web... all major sites do this (and no, they don't "own" all the pics they watermark either), and frankly in this day and age where someone could post one of those high resolution pic in a couple forums and get over 500-1000 hits in 24 hours, it's almost necessary... it prevent people from doing this (well, maybe not posting in a forum, but at least steal your bandwidth right from your server to their website), and for those who may post a pic once in a while from there on a forum to show something to members, at least the watermark provides a link back to the original site.. so at least you don't "hand over" your bandwidth...

 

There's other options to prevent "hotlinking", but I don't adhere to them since it makes the web a restricted place which I don't think is the point (so I adhere to the watermarking instead, may give the chance to someone to enjoy your hard work (your website) while stumbling upon a pic "distributed" by your website/server).

 

So you can think of watermarking as "I'm the distributor of this pic you're currently seeing" and not "I'm the owner/creator of this pic you're currently seeing"... it's putting an alarm on your bandwidth to prevent stealing (that, you own), not to dispute ownership/author's rights of the image.

 

Hope it's more clear? ..

 

 

Nah, all is cool.

 

Some years back when I owned www.zombieguide.com, there was a rival website that would constantly hotlink to my images. So, one day I replaced them all with hardcore smut and removed the links from my site but his was still linked for another 2 days before he noticed. :P

Here it is again, but shopped to add a little more color than the original:

 

Even though the brown leather belt instead of blue is a nice addition, did you add a blur effect to the pic? It seems a bit more blurry than your first one... I liked the sharpness of your first one while removing the ink dots marks .. the bluriness of the second one kills it IMHO (even though I'll take a tanned brown leather belt over a blue one anyday ;) )

When something's opened with paint, thepnphotoshop, then paint again, information is lost and the quality does diminish. Quality also sometimes dimishes when something is hosted when the host messes with the file to make sure it's under their file size limit.

Cool! I'm always hip to a challenge.

 

I thought some background color would sharpen the image up a little bit, and changed the skin tones on her....

Oh and btw, yeah, that "Valla" girl would make a pretty decent Baroness!...

except she's super annoying in sg-1 imo. but who knows she might not be like that in real life. . .

 

It's just the character she plays. In Farscape she played Aeryn Sun, who is the polar opposite of "Valla". Super serious solider type.

 

 

Oddly Ben Browder plays almost the EXACT same guy in both shows. They are interchangeable as far as I can tell.

EDIT: Oh snap! L'Ombrageux already has it! Oh well. . .

Yeah that's a great pic! Gets you a smile! It was probably an entry to the Maxim contest a while ago where you had to take funny costume pics involving GIJoe... (was it Maxim magazine? not sure... and wasn't it a board member who won that contest??)

Hey, found the site last night and it looks great so far!

 

I noticed that the fourth pic on the top row is an old that I was going to convert to pixel art for my cancelled Baroness character for MUGEN. The gallery entry for it can be found here. While I don't really mind that it's on the site (well, other than my ugly artwork), I thought it'd be cool if you had a version of it that has my name on it.

 

Anyways, it's good to finally see a Baroness fan site. Keep up the good work!

Sure! I'll switch it on the next update... I'll probably put that black and white pencil work instead! Never saw that one... nice..
