Elf Girl

Because I’m tired of seeing my work stolen and reposted on foreign blogs and sites:

Cette image mai pas être changé, modifié ou utilisé d'aucune manière sans l'autorisation de l'artiste.

Это изображение не может быть изменен, отредактирован или использованы каким-либо образом без разрешения художника.

Це зображення не може бути змінений, відредагований або використані будь-яким чином без дозволу художника.

A commission portrait for *Eldanis.

I'm deeply envious of that dress (even though I imagined it... ::sigh::).

(edit: 8/6/08) Several years after painting this I find it is the number one most stolen image from my gallery. It is also the number one image people request to use for various purposes: avatars, icons, sigs, tags, tubes, background images, etc.

So, to clear things up:

NO, you may not use this image as an avatar, icon, for your personal website or RPG character.

NO, you may not cut it up, add glitter, recolor it, or otherwise maim and maul it.

I'm sorry.

How would you feel if you paid me to paint your portrait and then I went around and let everyone on the internet use it for free? Not good, right? When I find it stolen on other sites, I will do my absolute best to have this image removed, even if it means that I have to find your ISP and have them shut down your site.

Stop stealing my work.

Wow, this is really good. It actualy looks a lot like an Elf OC I made for an AU storyline or a tabletop game, Warhammer Fantasy. Only difference is mine has a lot darker blue eyes, and her hair is lot more wavy/curly. But still it's absolutely lovely!!! :)

The whole painting is awesome. Even so, my favorite part of it is the dress. Blue is my fav color, and it just screams anyone who loves dresses. Good work.

ur work is beautiful I'd understand why somebody would want to steal it (not that I'm planning to lol) but I guess sometimes you can think good of an annoying thing, like the fact that people wouldn't steal crappy artwork, not sure if that makes u feel betta =)
