An unthinking moment is a funny thing! It starts out innocently enough, certainly - but in the end can come back to bite you in a big way.
As some of you might have noticed, I am no artist, myself - this DA is dedicated soley to those commissions that I have bought - or that others have bought for me. A little shrine to my characters and the wonderful artists who have helped me bring them to life, if you will. Though the intent was fair, I have done a disservice that I would like to make a public apology for!
I refer to this work here: katrinasinclaire.deviantart.co…
And it's edited accomplice here: katrinasinclaire.deviantart.co…
Though they were not bought by me, they were bought -for- me - and I uploaded them here as I always do; not giving proper pause to consider the dreadful fact that these images, intended to be my own Phyrra, were copies of some of the source material that was meant to be a starting basis for something original and little else. I knew this, of course, but failed to consider it at the most important moment.
Those images... goodness, I think I'm repeating myself... Though intended to produce an original image for my characters... are not, in fact, that character. The... reference... and the character they unwittingly became fanart of belong, instead, to - and you can see that character right here: fav.me/dht5j6
So, my apology goes first to the wonderful artist who has suffered the results of this carelessness. The likeness was never the intent; but I could have done something about the result just the same, I think.
My second goes to those artists who did these commissions; for having this placed upon them. I don't know what was said in the exchanges that led to the commissions - but I doubt that this was their intent, either. and are, so far I've known them, people of good character - and good artists, to boot!
My third goes to who, bless him, bought these for me with the best of intents. To have him pulled into a mess because of me is an awful thing to imagine; and yet it happened, just the same. Be careful when you're trying to do nice things for me, you booger!
Finally, I want to apologize to all those who took a liking to these pieces. I must ask you all to go ogle the appropriate person's work, instead of the two I've posted here. The other work I've posted of Phyrra is closer to what was intended; and so you can ogle that one, too - but go ogle the other artist, first. Maybe grope him while you're at it?
If you have any questions about this; please, ask away. I'll be happy to clarify as best I can on all fronts.
