Trying to figure out what to do right now. This isn't anything new, it's just something I don't like having to deal with. I wish some people would understand this, but they really put artists in a spot when they do it. Recently I've noted someone using Shaedwyn's pic for their LJ info. They added me as a friend actually, so they'll be reading this. I'm not going to name names, cuz I'm sure the last thing this guy wants to deal with is some kinda witchhunt. You know how fantards can be.

Anyway, I thought I'd just go ahead and make the statement about using my art (Mental note, add a page about this on the site). First and foremost, I would prefer that people -not- use pictures of my specific characters. This would mean Shaedwyn, Lorelei (especially Lore), Issac, Blackwolf, J'khal, Anyone in BT that's named, other player's characters that I draw (Xanthir, Tessemer, Tamanegi), etc. So if you're looking for a pic to use for your LJ icons, or for avatars, PLEASE don't use my characters. By giving yourself these icons, it says to me that you don't respect me as an artist and that character for what it is. It's not just a random drawing. By using Shaedwyn's pic as a LJ avatar, it makes me think you're a female human turned wolf or you want to be. So please be kind and don't use character images.

Now if you want to cruise through my gallery and use another pic for your avatars or icons, or even to put on your webpage, go ahead unless I specify otherwise for a specific picture. All I ask is that you give credit where it's due. Give me a link back, and tell people where you got the avatar from in your bio. That's all I ask.
