Rising by alicexz Rising by alicexz
This is a painting commission that I finished a couple days ago. It's a portrait purchased by a group of deviants for their friend's birthday! They asked me to post this now, as it is actually her birthday today (September 16th), so happy birthday to Marianne-Pet!

Here is the special message I was asked to relay:

To our beloved friend, Marianne-Pet
The kindest ,but when needed the toughest, person we know. We commissioned this portrait of you, just as a small note to you to show you that we love you and to express our gratitude to you for managing our amazing society and for giving the chance to people who wanted it. Stay the way you are.

Happy 18th birthday!
Love,

and the rest of the staff from

EDIT: Alverno College in Milwuakee, WI www.alverno.edu uses this painting in their ad campaign (with full permission from both me and the model.)

THey even have it on the website...I just checked. It's on the front page when you search the website.

Hmm.  Maybe they bought the rights from her, like BBC did with her Sherlock and Dr Who paintings, but I figured I should mention it just in case.

Could be but I don't think she would sell the rights of a commission to someone else besides the buyers and/or the person in the photo.

True. Unless she did get the commissionee's permission.

Alverno has permission for me and paid for the usage of the artwork in their ad campaign.
I also got full permission from the model in the painting before I gave it to Alverno.

Thanks for the concern guys, but yep, totally legit. :)
