Now, I don't mind people using it as part of their own art, but I do request that people credit me as the original designer of Nyx's cutie mark. Would you mind adding some kind of credit to the image's notes? Thanks for your understanding!
Thing is, back when I decided to do this, the original fanfic simply described Nyx's Cutie Mark as a "blue kite shield". Seriously, that was it. Hence my comment on my description here: www.deviantart.com/art/Cutie-M… To quote:
"Along the updated version of "Lifting Off", I decided to show and share the vectorized Cutie Mark of Nyx. I… kinda went as far as I could into making it as visually appealing as possible. Personally, I can’t help feeling the description it was given it was rather bland – I mean, c’mon, PenStroke, why couldn’t the shield have a symbol, or something? – and yet, I milked it for all it was worth, giving it a metallic border and a crescent moon-shaped highlight."
Then a good while later, someone drops this comment on me: comments.deviantart.com/1/2586… , informing me that the fanfic now not only changed the description to fit my design, but even actually has a link to my picture in its text.
After the... hype-attack of the moment, I edited my description of this picture to add undying gratefulness to PenStroke on it, and such is how we're now. Couldn't believe my fortune. One of the simpliest works I've ever done, and for it to get such recognition...
Though since it has essentially become the offical cutiemark I do still wonder... it is at this point more then possible for someone to want to make a Nyx picture and in seeing how others draw it decide to draw it the same way, thus meaning they 'copy' your design without knowing it.
Read the fanfiction for more info.
Haha. I'm self-absorbed.
