I noticed that you blatantly ignored what the owner of the photograph you copied told you.
You are hereby instructed to immediately comply with the above license, and you are further instructed to immediately remove and destroy all works with this image where you have claimed a copyright to the image. As the creator of this image I reserve the right to pursue other legal and civil remedies. You have hereby notified. They told you to remove it. Simply crediting it is NOT the same thing. Shame on you, I really liked your work but if this is how you handle this kinda situation by flat out ignoring what the photographer asked of you then Im afraid you lost a fan.
Well, perhaps I'm misunderstanding exactly what the photographer is asking, then. I thought that because I am no longer claiming a copyright to this image (fixed da's copyright statement, and certainly not personally claiming one), that it needn't be removed? Anyway, was not purposefully flat out ignoring.
Well its not really hard to understand, yes you now credit them but the photographer clearly asked to remove it, even if you are no longer claiming copyright it is their image they have the right to tell you to remove it or ask to just credit them. Because you didn't credit the first time (accidentally forgetting or not) they asked you to remove it. If your'e really still unsure,then you should contact the photographer and ask them again, they may or may not change their mind about your use of the image. That should clear things up.
Oh, actually, I did contact the photographer. Way back when all this happened... and they asked me to either change the copyright info, or take it down. I changed the copyright info. (this was after they left the comments you see here) No one else could know that, since those comments aren't anywhere public, but this issue WAS resolved back when it was posted.
awww, thanks for being a fan :} i do understand the feeling of seeing someone sort of sell themselves short, and being frustrated when you know they could do better. I have art students o.o
i guess the thing is.. yep, on this picture i obsessed over following that reference. there were two others i was using as well, but they only ended up with minor influences. buuuut i certainly don't always do that.. sometimes half a reference, sometimes none... everything in between this was one of the ones i did for my japan fundraiser; i was in a hurry, and had NO prior experience with tiger anatomy o.o so i pretty much freaked out anyways.. don't let it get you down too much ^^

I think you may have accidentally posted duplicates of your comment (unless you meant to have 3).
Maybe you didn't catch it, since i know you're new to DA, but i replied to this comment the first time you posted it (last night). just in case, i'll summarize what i said there: many apologies for getting this wrong, and i hope that now it's right!
