Kevin the Tortoise by haleyluna Kevin the Tortoise by haleyluna
This is my baby sulcata tortoise, Kevin. I'm uploading this because I keep getting messages from people on DA about other members trying to pass this photo off as their own (thanks for the heads up, guys!).

I never mind when people want to share my photos or use them as icons, etc, but a tiny credit is always nice. I do not, however, appreciate when people outright steal from me.

You can find my name in the bottom right on pretty much every copy of this photo out there (some folks have cropped it out).

Visit Kevin online: kevinthetortoise.com

*You're totally welcome to share this and/or use it for your wallpaper, icon, etc. If you create something from it, let me know so I can post it on his facebook! ♥

this picture is just way too perfect. in every way possible! plain and simple! also thanks for letting people share it. i've noticed many photographers, if not most, take an amazing photo like this one and don't let it be shared. i don't get it. my thought is, don't you want your photography shared and that's why it's posted online in the first place? as long as it's credited properly, that's the point.. i thought so at least haha anyways thanks again! amazing work!

your photo will be presented here:

Just letting you know, I love this picture! But secondly, I found someone using it, without your permission (perhaps) and certainly without giving you credit. I reported them to Deviantart, but they said the person who made the original should be the one to file a complaint. Here is the link for the "submission" inu-mac.deviantart.com/art/Bab… hey had even said they would take it down over a year ago and have not.

Again much love for this piece! So cute!

I love this picture from you and I have seen it many times.. what annoys me is how some people blatantly just say it's theirs!
:devTheeSamihinuMichinzh: even claims it lives with them and is their pet.... no credit or anything.
