The Risk of Posting on line.

AARRRGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

One of the risks of posting online is that an artist can love your work and "borrow" some of the details and method of expression. I have no problem with this......but do not show that work in a public space, or  better yet...just credit the influence.
There is a lot to share, and there are loads of influences out there, inspiration to draw from. But unless you take the method and develop it into your own, please do not do the artist the dishonor of publicly showing something that you know came from them.........

You take food from their mouths......

Sigh.....back to the drawing board.... new direction needed.....I can no longer explore that one........

To Shalini....who has gone through something like this....I feel your pain...........

Look at the bright side. If it's not blatan plagiarism, you do get exposure and your style becomes better known.
