Artwork Description

My inspiration in drawing was at 7 years of age when I first met my idol Ray Harryhuasen, His movies inspired and motivated me.

The original design painting was done by Jim Dallmeier. I did a lot of modifications to the creatures, adding the crab from Mysterious Island and the horse from The Valley Gwangi , it's a shame that I could not add more characters.

How dare you call this your painting?! Jim Dallmeier created it....not you. He imagined, designed, and rendered a masterful painting that hung in Ray Harryhausen's home for many years. All you have done is fingerpaint onto the canvas of a master. I'm sorry, Tony...but, simply adding a couple of characters and changing the color scheme does NOT constitute an original work, and/or allow you to call this your own. Imitation may be a form of respect. But, you didn't imitate it. You flat out stole it, and are attempting to profit from Jim's efforts. He's dead, but his nephew owns the rights to his works. He's also an attorney. Think about it. Seriously, the same goes for your other paintings of this genre. You've simply implemented the same format with different creatures. This is just one guy talking, here.....but your lack of character is screaming at us. This is a rip off...pure and simple. You didn't even have the moral fortitude to keep your post on Facebook, in the face of my similar post. $2K is about $1999.99 too much.

Art at its best.
