Charles Stanley. Deep down I think this piece was subconsciously dedicated to my own mother. She is my rock and inspires me every day.

As artists I think we sometimes forget the importance of telling a story through our work. This can be more important than color choice, composition, subject matter… Really more important than anything! Even a poorly demonstrated work with an amazing visual story can still be successful. This dive deep into the psychological connection with what we see as "art". You can almost hear the mama bear explaining how to catch fish to her cub. I have always been guilty of Anthropomorphism : The attribution of human traits, emotions, or intentions to non-human entities. It is considered to be an innate tendency of human psychology. This piece definitely illustrates that.

You are now to going to be forever flagged for being a shady scammer as @nonameslefttouse pointed out below. Enjoy wasting your SBD on those bid bots. I guarantee it's going to be a losing battle for you. Maybe @jerrybanfield can save you, but, I doubt it.

Please advise: After speaking with @abrockman in private, we've been able to iron this little problem out. He agreed to make a few changes moving forward and because of that I feel confident that he deserves a second chance.

Have a good day.

This is my original content… As an artist, I use reference images, but it is in no way a "copy/paste" and even the reference photos I used I have purchased the rights to use. Happy to provide any documentation you would require but this post has been flagged under false accusations.

I think doing this like photoshoping your art into another image takes away from the art as a whole

Looking beautiful

lol, I like that meme. nice one.

Amo dibujar a lapiz, tal vez un día me motive a intentar un trabajo como el tuyo, me encantó y espero que continúes compartiendo pinturas así.

Okay I read through all of the comments here and I'm endeavoring to be as objective as possible. I would say that including the original photo, along with the source for that photo, would be the right way to go, because it does seem as though you created the entire thing yourself. Which seems a bit dishonest.
As for the voting bots. It is perfectly in your right to use them, as you stated. But I will tell you that anytime I, or many people I know, run across a post that is involved with vote buying, we pass it on by. And if you're name is remembered for it, it won't matter what number your reputation shows, it will have been 'bought'. Maybe that won't matter, I can't say, I'm unaware of anyone who has successfully moved away from upvote bots (or breaking even, if that) and started doing well on their own. Again, that doesn't mean it hasn't or won't happen.
But, yeah, just give credit to the original piece, that may solve this issue.

excellent your post dear @abrockman.

Nature is beautiful but is very tough as well, just as it was for us many thousands of years ago, and still for many people today unfortunately.

I remember fly fishing on a remote river on Vancouver island, and as I watched my fly end its drift. I caught what first thought was a large dog. Then I realized it was Bear cub., them mom appeared. Your work reminded me of that day. Powerful stuff!

Motherhood which specifically entails to Mother . It may synonymous to the word servant but a mother who have the dignity to serve her children first before herself is a great honor that we millenials should give importance . Your post sounds great .
