This painting was removed once,I do not understand why,System that violates copyright,The painting is my creation,It is the WOW FAN ART。Does he belong to the copyright BLZ, instead of belonging to me?

Someone kind of mentioned it, but use of Blizzard's logo is the violation of copyright. Just crediting Blizzard for their logo doesn't forgive the copyright infringement. Your works are your works, but you can't take someone else's logo and stamp it on your work like it's a seal of approval. That's where the infringement comes in. That's Blizzard's seal and they are the only ones legally allowed to use it unless you have expressed written permission from Blizzard. Not harping on you, just trying to explain why it was removed once and still can be removed.

just put "World of warcraft logo and original draenei and blood elves caracters are copyrighted by blizzard"...
maybe is that the probelm... or.. maybe it' just some envious idiot reporting you... in both cases, it should work.

Another really beautiful piece, your a very talented artist. I was surprised that you actually covered the female's breast in this piece though lol. :D

I guess this is great eye candy and all, but why is it in all your artwork you have all the females exposed with little to no armor, but any of the males in your pieces are completely covered head to toe in armor? Are the females so much more powerful than their male counterparts that they just don't need the extra armor or something? It would be cool to see an art piece from you that exposes your male characters the same way you do with your female characters. Just my two cents though, regardless you did a great job with this piece, her armor is really beautifully drawn, well what little of it there is anyways. ;p

This is seriously awesome! I love this pic, the colours, the detail, everything. You should definitely be working for a games company to do artwork for games!!! :D

This was posted in the FanArt section of Blizzard's Official Website, not sure if you sent it in or someone else did.
Ambrey07 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2011
I just saw this posted on Blizzard's Official website as well under the fanart section:


Unless you actually submitted it yourself, someone posted your art under their name. I would check into it Azazel.

In some cases, it's worth pointing out in your comments that you obviously do not own World of Warcraft or any associated races depicted in your art. It's not strictly necessary, but it's not a bad thing to do, either. :)

this is so beautiful! You do such awesome artwork. :3

dude you are my idol your artwork is so amazing it makes me cry tears of emotions and there is no words for your artwork. without you the world would be one hell of a deep dark hole because your artwork is so awesome the laws of life revolve around you and your artwork!

Did you also submit this picture to the world of warcraft fansite? Someone could have mistaken it for official work
TurqoiseTortoise Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
People surely just didn't believe you actually drew this and reported it. Stupid people. Your art is amazing and it belongs to you even though it is Warcraft themed since you drew it. The only problem is if you make money from it without permission.

Blizzard... can copyright the "Worldofwarcraft" part under the Draenei.

Be careful, or this site may be sued.

probably b/c it looks really blizzard official XD you should do some art for them i like it a lot better than a lot of their original art O.o

Just saw this..

Normally things will get removed if you're not like COMPLETELY obvious that it's your art. For a while ALOT of disney fan art was removed because they said that it was their art, but didn't say anything about the chara's being disney.

I haven't done anything fan arty in a while, but the safest way is to say:

Art by me
Dranei's and Blood Elves and Logo are blizzards
Thewowdude Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2009
i absolutely love this artpiece! it is so beautiful in so many ways.

Every time i see one of your WoW pieces i think it looks like official artwork. Maybe that was the reason they took it off.
I mean daaaaamn can you imagine if this site got sued by Blizzard, bankrupt in less than a second lol.
