Hey. Thanks for featuring my drawing - however, I feel a bit uncomfortable that it's featured outside of deviantART. So, I wanted to ask you - could you remove the drawing from this gallery again?

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate you featuring my artwork - but it just doesn't feel right. Especially since you don't specifically credited my art either...

Much obliged.

ah, of course.

i figure you should know that if people who view our blog click the image they get sent directly to your deviant art.

i've deleted the post and i'm sorry for any anxiety that it may have caused you.
sythiar's avatar
Oh, right. I didn't realize that. I do feel a bit silly now.
It doesn't change the fact, though. Thanks for deleting it. :)

I guess with these few cases of art theft behind me, I've become a bit paranoid. It's my own fault really. I should probably write some guidelines on how to use my art.

it's totally fine.
i understand completely.

Interesting, I am curious though. There is a gray wisp wrapping around the body and connected to the third hand. Why, may I ask, is that there? I understand some of the simbolism but that one has me stumped.
sythiar's avatar
Nono. This isn't a whisp, it's a crack. The character in the picture is cracked on both sides as if she were made out of paper or clay or something. It should symbolize inner torment or whatever. Sorry for that. I guess it's not very clear.

Its okay, it looked to me like the hand had warped the girl, kind of like it's shadow is all it takes to erase, imagine what will happen if it attack... dun dun dunnnn
sythiar's avatar
Well, yeah. Except that it's a thing inside the person. So it can't really attack, otherwise it would die as well. The person and the thing are both connected, if that makes sense.
Raindroplet724's avatar
It makes complete sense. But it can attack if you count headaches and emotional discomfort as attacks.
sythiar's avatar
Nah, it doesn't give you a headache. At least not me. I can't really explain it right here, but it's more like a guidance than anything else. Even though it looks scary it really isn't.
Raindroplet724's avatar
That is true, about the scary part. Sort of like a conscience that you are afraid to listen to? Or an evil conscience that wants you to take its route and not another? Controlling maybe?
... hmmm, this piece really makes me think.
sythiar's avatar
Hmm... I don't know how elso to explain it. But it's just something I live with. Nothing scary, nothing evil, nothing mad. It's just part of me. There. Maybe a bit like a daemon in the His Dark Materials Trilogy of Philip Pullman (look it up on Wikipedia). Even thought it's just an aspect of my soul or personality.
