Oshun by olukemi Oshun by olukemi
The Yoruba [represent, yo.] goddess Oshun done as a commission. Took me far longer than it should have, but a lot of that was just trying to find inspiration, dammit. Ah, well. It's finished now, and I can move on to other things.

I'm absolutely fine with you using my image on your website! I only ask that when you credit me to please link to my website (aisha-o.com) instead of to my profile here. Thanks!

I cannot accept requests to link to people's personal websites or stores. You are welcome to add a link to the image description though, then people will find it. 

I can remove your image if you would rather.

Okay, no problem! Yes, I'd rather my image not be used then. Thank you for understanding! :)

No problem. Up to you. Removing an image is easy - having one's work selected for a feature on a major website is generally a bit harder. And people who write those blogs generally don't have time to deal with individual artist's particular requests.
Just saying.

I appreciate that, and I'm flattered you even considered using my art in the first place. I'm just not comfortable with my art being linked back to this account as I don't post here anymore and it wouldn't do much for me. That's all.

This is almost exactly what I drew to design a doll for my Oshun altar not one hour ago (and I just saw this picture today)! We seem to be on the same wavelength! Absolutely beautiful! :+fav:

God, this is gorgeous. You def captured what Oshun is all about. Nice to see some Yoruba art out there drawn by people who actually know what they're drawing. Would it be okay if I printed this out and framed it? I'm not selling it or anything; just want to have it to look at.

Or I could just buy a print, because being a struggling artist sucks and I don't wanna cheat you out of your moniez.

I would be insanely flattered if your bought a print, but it's by no means an obligation. I'm just happy that you like my drawing so much. I'm really surprised at how much attention my Oshun has gotten. Thank you so, so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it. :D
