To clarify what ~PlasmaDrone is talking about, I was really inspired by this fascinating piece of hard word you've done, inspired enough that I actually made a story from it, called Engineer: The Purrer's Cry.
I've made fully sure that you're credited in my description and gave a reason for my inspiration (plus I linked to your dA page and the link of the original artwork, which it is this one). If I made a mistake in any way, please let me know.
And I must say, this has seriously brought a tear to my eye and my heart clenching at the scene. Especially with Story of a Sentry: Afterlife song by Soimon. This is extremely well done!
First of all - Of course it's not a problem as soon as everything is linked properly, just like you did.
Second - Things like that inspire me to draw even more and thanks to you whole tf2 fandom might expect another bringing-to-tears drawing soon. Fact that somebody likes my hard work so much that people actually write fanfics about them pumps me up with motivation like nothing else.
Also the side note - if you like drawings filled with this kind of FEELZ, I recommend my friend's gallery. Let's say we're both on the same battlefield when it comes to hit people right in the feelz bone with pictures we create. There even was SFM Video based on her best work: [link] The video: [link]
You're certainly most welcome. I despise on being that type of person who's going to be a jerk for not giving credit to the original artist/author (let alone, since I've been hearing numerous amounts of art thievery going on recently, that person who steals and claims that stolen work as their own).
I am very glad that I have motivated you with my fanfic, but the truth is: You have motivated me in writing this. I should be thanking you greatly for that motivation, hun.
And did I not say that I adore drawings/literature with this kind of FEELZ? I have seen the two links that you gave me, and you're right: they did hit me on the feelz bone with those. If I was not currently working on a Resident Evil 6 fanfiction, I would write it.
Heh, keep your eyes on us, since Summer is the time when me and my friend are getting to work with our drawings! ^^ ... maybe a litle less for me, since I practice with 3D modeling in order to create custom models for SFM: FemSoldier, improved FemScout, The Batter from OFF game and much more!
