it bugs the hell out of me when someone takes work and claims all of it as their own. I used to create icons for a chat website, and I never claimed the images, just the text and animations and (superfluous) crap that got put on them...
I still hate sparkly avatars with a passion... lol
I'll be buying this one later this week (got to save for a bus trip). I love the mystical darkness about her, and the tribal tats she's sporting. Do you research the tats or is that out of your owwn imagination?
The thumbnail itself is great... Close up... You can see EVERY little detail. That tattoo is gorgeous. The shading on the hood could use a little more depth, or sharpness in the folds, but... Really. It's fantastic as it is.
The look in her eyes, the lighting, ... your incredible painting... every little detail is perfect in its place to convey such an intense and beautiful darkness. Everyone else can get in the back of the line for prints!
