A Piece of Heaven by arrsistable A Piece of Heaven by arrsistable
Again, an order from a girl on NSHC. :D

I hunted that site for about a week for someone looking for a paint horse, and not only did I find it, but she suggested using one of ~Olympic-Ferro's horses... which was the original reason of why I was looking anyhow.

Another photomanipulator from NSHC, ~Haikuxx, did the same order too, and oddly enough we chose to use the same horse image, which wasn't even the one that Raisa (who placed the order) origonally suggested. hehe.

Anyhow, here's Haikus take on it: [link]

It's interesting how two people can see one request and end up with such different ideas.



Anyhow, here's hoping you guys like it. The mane and tail were completely repainted; the mane was originally on the opposite side of the neck, though I cloned it out and made it flow to the right. Or.. the left, if you're the horse.

Origional horse: [link]

I've never painted a duo-colored mane before, either. Highlights and what not, but nothing drastic like white and black. Here's hoping it came out natural looking.



Thanks to the stockers who made this possible!

No, it's not at all! I was just so shocked when I saw how.. *polite* they were, that's the only reason why I allowed them to keep it up. Usually I tell them the same things you did - take it down, etc etc.

I'm not sure if it amuses me or not though that my work is "just another of those pictures floating around the internet."

Hi. Did you give permission for this to be used on a free wallpaper providing website??

If you did or have already been told sorry to waste your time...

But if you didnt heres the link to the website:

[link]

Link to your piece: (So you dont have to search like i did)

[link]

I saw someone use it on a online sim game.
They removed it when they found it wasnt originally from there, and told me the website. It took me a while to find it but i got there.
Again sorry if you gave permission or know already. I just want to make sure you know...

Hiya,
I don't know if this is approved but I cannot see any credits on the picture or your permission for it's use on here, so I am reporting a misuse of this image on Howrse.com, being used as a layout image. This image: [link]

It is being used by "Mtzcowgirl" and her player page is [link]

Gorgeous manipulation, didn't want to see it misused.

H3sy x.

Hello,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I would like to inform you that your beautiful piece of art has been stolen and uploaded here at this [link] where it is being claimed as that person's own, and being offered as a free wallpaper for anyone to download and use as they please. It appears that your artist signature has also been removed.

The person who has stolen it goes by ~tedisoo, and it seems that she has stolen A LOT of deviantART artists' work (my own, included), only to claim it as her own and upload it to her gallery on that website.

In fact, it appears that there are A LOT of users on that site who have stolen artwork from artists here on deviantART (my own, included), and I as well as a bunch of others are doing our best to inform all of the artists who we recognize stolen artwork from on that site (if you would like, check out my latest Journal Entry on my DA page for more information, including information on how to have your artwork removed from that site).

I thought that you would like to know.
