Taking another look at my posts, I do agree on that. I guess I'm a bit angry that I came off that way, so I do apologize for that, as well as any inconvience my post may have caused, and again, I await a reply from Linda on this matter.

Well, nobody ever accused me of being a genius. Then again,

stealing (yes, because that's what is is) from photos that she doesn't own the copyright to
the fact that she lies
lying to you about their working methods and profiting from them

RebeccaK, not long ago I was a rabid defender of Linda, (she'd been one of my fav artist technique-wise for over 5 years), throwing around "yall are pathetic and jealous" and trying to insult the so-called 'attackers'.
But seriously.
Did it occur to you that they've got Linda's fans in mind here? People truly believe, through rational study and consideration of evidence, that something isn't quite right with Linda's claims. Truly, there's nothing nasty or vicious there. Just a 'hrmmm' feeling

I always thought Linda was the most lovely, perfectly curteous artist and could certainly do no wrong. Every new post was a OOOHH! moment.
Of course evidence is subjective and nothing's has been or probably will be proven either way, but all the stuff that's come up lately has made me change my mind.
I still think she's a lovely, curteous lady and a very skilled artist (funnily enough it's her least realistic stuff and sketches I always like/d best) but her art isn't the breathtaking thing it once was to me - and what she may want it to appear to viewers, so skilled and unbelievably realistic that it's breathtaking - hence the alleged little white, err, grayish lies.

Slickgreekgeo has publically admitted that he once did paintovers but has moved onwards and upwards, I highly doubt he has anything to hide here.

Lowtekk, if the numerousreference images you use are in fact being painted over (down to the very smudges and imperfections), then yeah, you really should be crediting every last one of them.

Someone pointed out to me in a PM a lil while ago, "reference [which is what Linda has said is the extent of her use of external images] means to "refer" or "consult"; not to, copy, mimic or paint-over", as has seemingly certainly been done in this image. And if it has only been done in one image, one time, that's still one lie, and kinda unnacceptable.

thirstle thirstle thirstle... unacceptable? one lie? Where is the lie?

Thirstle stop making this out to be such a huge thing, you are obviously not putting this into perspective well enough, you sound genuinely angry, like she has stabbed you in the back or something...

And slick is just as insane on this topic.

Yep. That's enough bickering. If Linda wishes to have this thread reopened, then she's welcome to have that done.
