The Warrior by alanlathwell The Warrior by alanlathwell
This was done as a speed painting exercise just for fun.
It was done within a few hours in photoshop.

Hi ardon, I'm really sorry but I'm going to have to say no. As a professional illustrator I need to keep my images available for legitimate purchase, to give permission would jeopardise future sales potential and complicate copyright agreements. I hope you understand my reasons.

I would like to use this in a card game I am making for myself. I can't pay you as this card game is not for profit, however, I can identify you as the illustrator. I will show you a copy of the card upon request. With your permission, and if the production of these cards it cheap enough for me, I will give you a copy of the actual printed card. Message me when you get the chance.

I signed up for a Deviant account just for this:

I've been using this image as my online avatar for over a year now. I found it by chance and never really looked into where it came from, what it was for, etc. In fact, this image has defined quite a bit of my play-style in medieval/fantasy games and I even started writing a bit of lore for him (He's known by the name of his rod, 'Shieldbreaker')

Anyhoo, hope you don't mind me using it :D

Why isn't this in a musem? I mean for God's sake if a canvis with paint splattered on it can be art why not this? Why doesn't the main stream art recorgnise fantasy based art as a form of art? It just doesn't make any BEEPing sinse!

Hi, I have a blog sharing excerpts from my novel, The Unfinished Song: Initiate. May I use your art in some of my posts? You will be given full credit and I will link to your deviatART site (and another site if you request it). Here’s the site:

a speed... painting exercise? wow thats really well done for just speed painting lol I love it. He looks like a complete badass!

But hey I was wondering though if you would allow me to use this image in the trading card game I am working on; I will give full credit to you if you allow me to use the picture. I will not use this image unless you give permission of course. If you have any questions just email me or instant message me though live messenger at cardsofwar@live.com
Thanks for your time!

I really hope you wouldnt be mad, but as an exercise from school, I painted this picture as a reproduction (acrylic), and I thought maybe I could upload mine too to DA, but first I wanted to ask for a permission. please?
