I finally snatched a moment to upload this sucker amidst the wonderous chaos that is life.

Here is the first completed work for the currently un-named table-top RPG that myself and a buddy from back home are in the process of producing.

More teasers and sketches are on the way soon.

Here is the initial rough that I used as a base to build on: [link]

Hope you dig!
Thanks for shooting by the gallery, God bless you all and take care.

My absolutely favorite piece on DeviantArt! The atmosphere and the characters are quite stunning, that lady looks solid. Hope we'll see another one in a near future. You're killin' it, Rigney!

Hey, just wanted to let you know that your art is unfortunately being spread by random wallpaper sites without credit. I happened across this image when looking for writing inspiration but when I clicked the visit page link, it took me here (megahdwallpapers.net/cityscape… ). Thanks to google I was able to use their image to search for your page however I wanted to let you know that many other cites popped up in the search with no credit to you and your incredible work - I'm not sure how you feel about this kind of phenomenon, I only hope that somehow you'll be able to regain credit where it is definitely due.

I like the scifi stuff like this!! Be awesome to see you do some Ghost In The Shell stuff like the major or Tachicoma's or Evangelion like Asuka or Final Fantasy things like Sepiroth!!!
Have you ever worked as a concept artist for games! Keep going well and keep up uploading your stuff!

Is Type1arts guilty of copyright infringement? Yes.


The following information is found at about.deviantart.com/policy/co… under the heading:


“What is Copyright Infringement?”


To simplify this question, copyright infringement occurs when you do certain things with a creative work which someone else produced without first getting the proper permission.


Some examples of copyright infringement (this is only a partial listing) can include:


1. Placing someone else's photograph or creative work online without proper permission.


2. Using a creative work commercially without permission.


3. Adapting someone else's creative work found in one medium to another medium, such as making a book into a movie or a photograph into a painting.


4. Modifying or editing a creative work without proper permission.


 – from Copyright Policy about.deviantart.com/policy/co…


Here are the facts: On March 18, 2014, Type1arts placed a comment on one of my images stating his intent to post it to his tumbler account. I responded within 17 minutes of his comment ordering him to cease and desist, and informing him of my right to refuse him permission to re-post my artwork.


Despite my notice Type1arts has posted my artwork without authorization on his tumbler account. As of this date further actions are underway.


I recognize that it is up to you as the artist to decide if you want to permit Type1arts to re-post your artwork, but consider the following: if this user has no respect for your right to control the placement of your work, what other violations of your rights might this user commit?


Consider and act as your judgment dictates.
