Fallen Is He Who Once Soared by jezebel Fallen Is He Who Once Soared by jezebel
Forsaken.

About 2.5 hours in photoshop 5. Reference used for the anatomy, but painted freehand. I hate it when people think photo reference means traced or manipulated.

I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE this work; I found it on google images long before I bumped into it here, and I'll tell you, right off the bat it was one of those that I considered as a book cover. IT...IS...PHENOMENAL. You capture the grief of the situation in a way I hadn't thought possible. This work leaves me speechless. Just thought you should know.

I see that Americanlink has already contacted you about your piece. Please let me know if this is a confirmed theft or not as I'm keeping a running tally of artists that have been victimized.

To read more about the project and updates: [link]

If you're interested in seeing if you can ID more artist's work: [link]

If you wish to file a complaint, I've lately been suggesting that artists file it with Facebook directly so they know what's going on since all the developers are doing is taking down art and switching it for another stolen artwork.

I would like to inform you that your artwork has been used in a Facebook application called Elven blood. I can only give you a screenshot, unfortunately, as you need to play in order to get to the image.
