Where my avitar came from
yes, this is the original submission. I submitted it here and sheezyart, and no other locations.
Update: 18th October 2009
History note: I've seen a lot of copies made of this (mainly the avatar version of it so I'm going to add to the description.
I remember the day sitting at my desk doodling this on the screen, it took me a fair amount of time and I had to use a mouse! yes, a mouse. Thankfully since then I've got myself a tablet but because I wasn't aware of how tablets made a difference so I put up with using a mouse for most of my work around that time.
its only later on in its life that It was brought to my attention that a whole thread on gaia had been made about it and I ended up running into it pretty often after that. most of it was harmless until it began to appear here with users posting it as their own work, most of which I eventually found and have taken care of.
I mainly don't worry as long as its not uploaded or claimed as some other persons work. it warms my heart that its been able to spread itself around the internet like it has though!
