I get a lot of messages from DA members asking me if they can use* my artwork for free and credit me. I bet a lot of artists have the same experience.
I guess that's a way of getting something you want, without paying for it. Maybe in another world this could work. Not in real life though.

Have you ever walked in a grocery store, grabbed your food and beverages and said to the cashier that you're going to credit him/her for what you've got?
Have you ever said to your landlord that you'll credit him/her for living in his/hers house?
Have you ever said to your energy company that you'll credit them for the gas or the electricity that you're using?
I guess not!

So, please, don't ask us artists if you can use our artwork for free and just credit us. You have to pay for our services.
This is what we do for a living. This is how we pay our rent, our energy bills, our food and provide for our families.
This is how we pay our taxes, so that the government can pay for building your kid's school, the public servants (police, firefighters, etc) or your benefits.

Respect what we're doing, so that we can keep on doing it and make your world more beautiful!

Wish you all the best.
Chris

Wow, your art is phenomenal and the fact you are self taught, makes it that much more amazing.  You must of gone through so many obstacles to get where you are now.  The detail alone along with the VFX and imaginative concepts and characters, makes your portfolio pop out more than others.  Shame you don't have more attention on here.  You deserve it, but I'm glad you are working for such awesome companies.  I really feel you should apply to Riot and work making splash arts for LOL (though to be honest, your art exceeds that quality with the realism and detail alone and they would kill to have you XD). 

Maybe if you have a chance I would love some art advice as I'm too self taught, but don't feel like I can get anywhere close to your stuff even with the proper training.  Thanks for inspiring me.

Thanks for dropping a line ScaleBound. It's a matter of practice I guess. Cheers!

I really enjoy visiting your page and looking at the full art. Tiny MTG cards do not do it justice. Please never stop making these wonderful pieces!
