I almost made my first sale on a print of a Lilo and Stitch watercolor painting ( that I have on Zazzle, but it was cancelled :(
If any of you happen to be Disney fanatics and would be willing to support a fellow artist, it's only $15 for a print ;)

Or perhaps you know someone that wants one, either way. Thanks!

It actually looks like they took down the painting entirely for copyright reasons. That's unfortunate. I thought that if it was my own work then it's not copyrighted, right?

I think Disney are pretty strict on their copyrights. Don't they even have the shape of Mickey's ears protected?

You would only own the copyright if you created the characters.

Zazzle is very strict when it comes to copyright.

I think I made the same mistake on a couple of things I painted from photographs which must have been copyrighted. Didn't think it would matter as they were considerably, and intentionally different in form and colour etc. Ah well, no wrong intent meant. I wasn't intending submitting them to the National Gallery or even selling them. We live and learn. :crying:
