I think there is a couple more of this floating around but I can't seem to find the others at the moment.
This next one was a little different, and I think it was the first time somebody has used an image of me as inspiration.

Edit by soxrule (again).
I was searching for this one, I loved the drawings sox done of me. The detail is awesome in both, he appears to no longer be on deviant art though which is a shame.

I feel quite bad now because there are some drawings I remember vividly but cannot for the life of me remember who done them or where they are online. I may have them saved on the computer somewhere.
I may actually start to publicly say "you can use this as a reference image" on images where photographers have agreed prior to me even using the shot. Then on the ones where photographers have said no I will mention that.
I don't mind the drawings, if they are not for commercial use. Its pretty flattering to have somebody take the time and effort to put pen/brush to paper. What I'm not so keen on is people sending me a note saying "hi i used ur pic for a college project" then a link to the image, especially if its not one of Rorys. Or when people have sent me a PM showing me some monstrosity they have done in phtooshop. Maybe I'm just more touchy when it comes to editing, I know myself how long I sit and edit and some of the "reworks" I've been sent have been bloody awful.
Still.. we all see things differently!
I will need to do this type of post again.... when I have more material for one.
Thanks again to everybody mentioned in this post you are all wonderful.
