This picture was originally created back in 2005, November 16 to be exact, (the date is penciled in on the back of the paper).
It has the pretty much the same story as the other image I uploaded to my Scrapbook a couple years ago.
A few years back, I went through my DevART gallery and deleted a bunch of my older work, this piece included. At some point before this mass deletion, someone had either saved this image to their computer or reuploaded it elsewhere on the net which has made it a target of art theft. I know of at least one case where it's been reused and reposted without any credit whatsoever to me as the original artist. Art thieves are such a pain sometimes...
So, I am reuploading this so I have a proof link while reporting the various cases of art theft I have had brought to me concerning this picture. This new upload has been labeled with my two current watermarks to deter future theft.
Looking at this picture really drives home the fact of how much I've improved over the years. I have a much higher quality scanner now than I did back then too.
