Well I ALWAYS ask to use a model's/photographer's photo with their permission, ALWAYS. It's only right right? ;)

Do I have permission to use yours in the future Princess?:please:

Not always as we can see. This is dishonestly, and will be only on your conscience.

Your art has been observed by the Byzantine empire. Your art is is symbolic of the true being behind the flesh. Take these gifts of incense crafted in Libya, and and currency of 500 Denarri. May your future endeavors be successful. :happybounce:

I understood it very well, and I think that when people said so pathetic words about works it's too much, and tells that you don't know about what you're talking))

Thanks for knowing about what the Byzantines were. Very hard to find people on this site that know them that aren't part of any history group.

Wait a sec... Lol my compliment was pathetic! Ohhh! I see!
Okay, well that was just because I thought you didn't know who the Byzantines were. Considering incense was made from most middle Eastern countires/kingdoms in the 500,s but I digress.

All this would have sense if my work really had even a tiny thing similar to any of aspects of Byzantine culture)))
