As The World Falls Down by Sorael-Ignis As The World Falls Down by Sorael-Ignis
Commission for :icongreenbutterfly99: of her Shepard and Thane Krios from Mass Effect

In Bioware's eyes, the only thing this picture needs is lens flare XD

Also, two pictures away is Thane's wife D; wasn't expecting this commission when I drew her.

His likeness to Abe Sapien is striking, which is fantastic considering Thane's appearance was inspired largely from that character.

Gorgeous *-* 10/10 A+ would bang.

This is so cool! Not sure if you meant the David Bowie tune from Labyrinth as the reference for the title but it made me squee cuz I love that song so much I had it played at my wedding! :D

Gathering this is a commission I'm going to assume the answer is no but on the off chance: any chance you'd be willing to let me upload this to the albums of a Facebook page I admin called Mass Effect Female Shepard? I'd include reference to you as artist and a link back to your original in the caption if I did.

That is the exact song I mean :) If I get married, I plan to have that playing myself :D

And unfortunately you are right. I try to avoid Facebook all together regarded art being posted on there. It tends to find a way to get stolen regardless.

I understand! Yeah - there's a lot of pages that just post pictures without even a mention of the artist:

"Oh their name's on the image so you can just google it. It's in the corner - you know where you can't see when it's displayed unless you click on it and have to use a magnifying glass to read it." - Yeah. Great.

Drives me nuts!

Having said that, a lot of people make pages and just don't think about it. Nice thing about that is some of them feel really bad if you point it outthen they try to change. I got at least 3 pages to post credit for artists and links to originals in the captions of stuff they uploaded by whenever they asked for a "share" on my page, I said I followed the following policy:

1. The proof is in the pudding: I'd not share their page, I'd share something *from* their page and credit it to them.
2. I don't like sharing pictures that have no reference to the artist or original on my page.

I tell them I don't take it personally, they're free to run their pages as they please but on my page it's my rules. Several really respected what I'd written and pointed out, so then went about correcting all their captions and then I went ahead and shared their stuff.

Another page also for FemShep didn't like our page at all (we had a few fights because of the way they did things like share stuff without credit from artists and other pages too) but the upside was that at the time a couple of fans commended that generally (at the time I was not the sole admin) we posted links and such to originals, so their page did that for a long while because they considered it a competition!

So... I go with what Gandhi says: "Be the change you want to see in the world." :)

But I *do* appreciate people have a long way to go. There is still a lot of theft or just sharing without any recognition (that's still plagiarism!). So I don't blame you and respect your decision.

Precisely. I wish sharing wouldn't feel like leaving yourself vulnerable because art is certainly something to be shared. Good luck with admining that hah sounds like a handful!
