I recently and gladly and as you may have noticed, favourited some of your work. I find it eye-catching and wonderfully composed.
I don't know if you are already aware of the fact, but I am doing a study at college on how people decide if they like or dislike a piece of art. At the top of my DeviantART home page, I had a statement outlining the study.
I've just been reported to the staff here on DeviantART by an artist for intellectual property infringement, and was very saddened and shocked by this. As a result, I wish to fully inform all those whos work I favd to let you know that no infringement of your intellectual property was intended, or will occur at any time during my study. Furthermore, if you want to me to remove you from consideration, or if you wish withdraw at any time later on, please let me know. No profit is or will be made from this academic endeavour, and all images are used under the fair uses rationale (low resolution image only, all credit to the artist, academic purposes only, etc). None of the works used will be printed, but instead will only be displayed on a computer screen for a few seconds.
If I am not banned, I plan to continue posting updates of my study, and the final findings in or around March 2008.
I hope that you would feel positive about this, fully informed, and would like to take part. If you have any further questions, please contact me, and I will be only too happy to clear anything up, or just have a chat about the study, art, or anything else.
p.s. My apologies if I have already contacted you in relation to this, but since I want to ensure that everyone is kept informed, erring on the side of caution with the sheer number involved will have the occasional double-up.
