I found this picture on Google and loved it so much I used it as a reference for a digital work. I spent many hours lovingly getting the details as close as possible to the gorgeous "random" picture I had found and then posted it to my FA account.
Today, when one of my friends asked if I had used a ref I answered truthfully... to the best of my knowledge. She then sent me the link to this page and I flipped out and immediately removed the picture from my page out of respect for a fellow [and much better, in my opinion] artist.
Google is not my friend, but I am in love with this picture. So, I posted a link in my journal to this submission so that everyone who liked my now deleted digital painting can instead favorite it where they should have originally-- here.
Hi! I was wondering if it would be alright if I used the couch in this photo for one of pieces that I created? I've looked everywhere for a nice looking couch, but this one is the only one that pleases me! and I will of course give you credit!
