So not really a sketch but not really a finished piece either? Just a little something I painted for a Q&A in the current Imagine FX, which I liked enough to post :)

Is there any chance you'd ever make this a print?

Hello! I bought a print at Akon( an anime convention here in Dallas, Texas,USA) and it looks VERY similar to this painting. The lady named it Rapunzel and it was a profile piece with the EXACT SAME EVERYTHING!(Minus clothes i will say) Even down to the yellow sparkles/dots with the sig. in yellow.  I don't know if you allowed this, but i just thought i'd share it with you because it just looked so alike with yours. It could have been a coincidence, but i honestly don't know. I can upload it if you would like to see what i am talking about.

Hi, I certainly don't allow it! This was for Imagine FX and so there shouldn't be any prints of it.

Ah, i see. It isn't the exact same picture, but it looks i guess...heavily influenced? The colors are the same, she has long braids with also the same color, the sparkles are the same along with the background. Like i said it could be a coincidence or inspiration, but it looks like they didn't really bother to put a tremendous amount of effort into making it their own. At least to me they didn't.

Here is a link to my Google+ page where i uploaded a photo of it. I won't leave it up since it's not my work and now i feel different about it.…
