You Must Believe Me... by smashmethod You Must Believe Me... by smashmethod
Full Title: "You Must Believe Me When I Say I'm Fighting The Dead."

But I got these voices that just keep singin out, sayin' "I just cant stop losin' control."




All silhouettes are photos of me, by me, or from photos I took.

here i was thinking that this was an interesting fan art of an anime (that i was looking forward to learning about and watching) but now i see you made it. I had a pretty long search, starting from 4chan and going through some really weird Asian and i think a few European and there was at least 3 Spanish sites i went through to get to this. This picture has gotten around.

I wrote a journal a while ago about weird art-related stories I'd encountered over the years, and this picture does indeed have a story of it's own. I'll paste the story about it here, the stories about other pictures are here: smashmethod.deviantart.com/jou…

"For the longest time the silhouette in the center of this piece was being ripped/stolen by MickM (mickm.com). The funny thing was is that he was claiming he was the person in the silhouette, and that he made it from scratch. This is hilarious because anyone who knows what I look like knows that bulky 6'6'' frame in that image is me, propped up on a chair in the basement. There's even still posts on his forums where he says I stole it from him. Needless to say after I emailed him a resized version of the image of me in the basement before silhouetting it threatening legal action, he "redesigned his site because it needed it for unrelated reasons" and the rip disappeared. How very timely."

Wow I love it! The style looks great and I really like those kind of texts that is circling around him.
But I really gotta know, is this from an original idea or is this some kind of fanart? =O
In any way I LOVE the idea! Faved.

That's because he stole this from me, and only took it back down after I threatened to sue him.
