Update:

Tom has pulled the product from the website.

He will be taking this idea and moving forward with another artist, starting from scratch, beginning with a hand-sketch based around this concept.  Sketches will be provided and preliminary designs will be shown alongside the finalized product.

The concept is great.  Taking the photo and drawing over it is NOT acceptable. (see comments in thread for further information)


Further Update:

Newly done with hand-drawing based on inspiration of the original photography, the way it should have been.  Please note I am only the messenger; Tom has not been approved by mods to post here yet so I'm updating this for him.

I will not be participating in any arguments.

Tom's account has still not been approved by mods, so I am posting an update for him, per his request.

Here's the new design, based on the concept of the photography (which is what should have occurred in the first place, as I originally mentioned)

I see the newbie post regarding the said photographer of the image.  Not sure if that's the real photographer, but, regardless, if they'd like to reach out, I will ensure Tom mentions on his description page that it is inspired by the photography of "insert name here."  Photographer has not mentioned his name.

Godspeed,

Frank






Hey everyone!

It's been a wild last year and I hope everyone here is doing well.  

As most of you know, Tom, the new owner of Lynx, took over in Dec of 2019.  I missed Bitcoin and the entire community.  I reached out to him last week and asked how I could help.  I'm back on in a limited role now and have teamed up with him to help with some new pieces.

I personally think is one of the coolest ever to be released.  We will be posting it on here and Twitter only for the first five days.  After that we'll be sending it out through our newsletter and other social media channels.

First orders received will determine the number received.

'As you enter The Secret Room, you will find the Bitcoin Whitepaper formula etched into the walls of this beautiful piece of art. As you continue your journey through the tunnel, it leads you to the ultimate treasure. The Bitcoin Vault!'

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and Bither are OK.)

Each version has its own limit.  Video shown is the metal panel which is limited to 18.  Then each canvas is 18 and 15, respectively.  So yes x51 in total if you added up each canvas size and the metal panel.



Looks Great! Well Done.

Thanks!

The prints themselves are not limited to a specific number or production, they are marked as 'unlimited' (or until their production expiration, to be determined by Lynx.) 

The only limited pieces from this artwork are the canvases and the metal panel.

I can't believe that the first thing you show back up with is a phototshoped picture.  Really 500-900 for photoshop.... not even original art..... SCAMTASTIC!!  Nowhere in the description does it state what image yours was based off of.  IMO the artist STOLE this picture.  No due diligence.... what a joke.

I am not the artist and therefor have no knowledge of the image used to design the artwork.  I was not involved in the process.  All I was told was that it was based on another idea and was asked if I could share it with the community, as Tom has yet to set up an account here for himself and Lynx.

Also, I'd appreciate you not calling me a 'scam.' Please don't shoot the messenger.

I've been around for quite some time, have excellent trust score, and am the original creator of Lynx (yet I am not any longer).

I do appreciate you pointing this out to me and I will discuss it with him.  I'm not sure what artist he hired to do this, but it is a bit disappointing to see on my end.

Read again..... I didn't call you a scam and I'm well aware of who you are.  I said the artist stole the image and selling it was SCAMTASTIC!!

Yes, Tom messed up and did no due diligence like you never did either.  Don't pretend like this is the first time this has been an issue for Lynx and last time you were at the helm.  Most people might have forgotten but your buddy Tom kindly refreshed it for us on his very first release here.  Well done.

Not true.  We had ten designers working for us at one point and it was very hard to keep everything in-check.  There may have been two or three that had borrowed from other designs, and those were during partnerships with other artists.  I don't recall their names. Edit: luchopoletti, https://luchopoletti.com/collections/better-money-message/hodl-crypto-art , he was the one we had partnered with on several pieces for release.  It was determined that many of these pieces looked very similar to the "OBEY" artwork creator.  This is where much confusion came into play and, upon finding this out, we pulled those products.  Not sure if anyone recalls this, but we did.

Our main artist always cranked out original artwork.  Always.  Go to the Space section.  All original.  Even the Kickflip Astronaut was a previous design that, with permission, that same exact artist, Devin, created it to be Bitcoin-oriented.

But I do understand your point.  Due Diligence should indeed have been done on this and I'm both disappointed that he went this route and, alongside this, I am a bit embarrassed that I backed it without my own proper research.

I cannot further promote these works until they are 100% originals; It's not fair to the community and I will express this to him before my departure.

Can't take full credit for the find..... but I certainly wasn't letting it go unnoticed since this is at least the second time Lynx has had this issue with a thieving artist.

^ That was the other one.  Again, DD was not done on our part, and a few pieces he released, marketed under OUR brand, were similar to others on the market. 

Now that I'm separated from Lynx I will tell you that this was a huge slap in the face to me when I discovered he had done this, because I worked so hard from ground up to always make unique and original designs, working with artists that were sending me physical hand-drawn pencil sketches before they moved it into adobe and added all of the digital effects.  So going from that and building a groundswell of trust, and then to partner with someone who had essentially stabbed me in the back, was definitely a hit to me personally.



I am suggesting that Tom pull the product.

He can still make something similar with the same basic idea, but it should NOT be using an image that was found on the internet, it should be hand sketched and originally designed.



Update:

Tom has pulled the product from the website.

He will be taking this idea and moving forward with another artist, starting from scratch, beginning with a hand-sketch based around this concept.  Sketches will be provided and preliminary designs will be shown alongside the finalized product.

The concept is great.  Taking the photo and drawing over it is NOT acceptable.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention so I could inform him.  This is extremely serious and vital that the art community receive something that is indeed unique, creative, and NOT copied.

Piss poor on lynx whoever is running it. A quick sellout would have resulted in upwards of $35k from this community.  Disappointed and won't be looking at anything from lynx from this point on.  Unacceptable  Undecided thanks anon for bringing this to the forefront before someone paid a grand for something obviously not remotely close to it.

He's sending the concept over to their top designer which was Miranda.  She'll hand sketch everything first then bring it all in digitally and use this as an overall concept idea.  So this can now be viewed as the 'concept' on which the final piece will be made from, from what I've been told.  When the final piece is shared, I'll make sure it includes original sketches and in-process digital design to showcase. 



Piss poor on lynx whoever is running it. A quick sellout would have resulted in upwards of $35k from this community.  Disappointed and won't be looking at anything from lynx from this point on.  Unacceptable  Undecided thanks anon for bringing this to the forefront before someone paid a grand for something obviously not remotely close to it. 

He is working on fixing the problem and we discussed it in detail.  Please don't take this out on Tom and Lynx as a whole.  He is still fairly new to the art scene and took over the company only a year ago so his acquisition is still fairly new.  Since his acquisition he's only released, I believe, two or three new pieces (and I believe this was out of fear of not knowing what to design or what would be good/not good).  Clearly this was not the correct route to take, and he understands that now and has profusely apologized to me and the community (via my text messages with him).

Customers shouldn't have to scour the interwebz to figure this out.  In the real world this would be art company suicide....a post from the company would be nice doesn't take but 2 minutes to sign up here.  If you are not involved with this someone is and at a minimum owes an apology for almost stealing $35k from this community.  You know well enough people here love their art/collectable pieces but we are niche and a very small community.  Things like this discourage newcomers to jump in.  We need to expand not contract our community....

Piss poor on lynx whoever is running it. A quick sellout would have resulted in upwards of $35k from this community.  Disappointed and won't be looking at anything from lynx from this point on.  Unacceptable  Undecided thanks anon for bringing this to the forefront before someone paid a grand for something obviously not remotely close to it. 

He is working on fixing the problem and we discussed it in detail.  Please don't take this out on Tom and Lynx as a whole.  He is still fairly new to the art scene and took over the company only a year ago so his acquisition is still fairly new.  Since his acquisition he's only released, I believe, two or three new pieces (and I believe this was out of fear of not knowing what to design or what would be good/not good).  Clearly this was not the correct route to take, and he understands that now and has profusely apologized to me and the community (via my text messages with him).

Customers shouldn't have to scour the interwebz to figure this out.  In the real world this would be art company suicide....a post from the company would be nice doesn't take but 2 minutes to sign up here.  If you are not involved with this someone is and at a minimum owes an apology for almost stealing $35k from this community.  You know well enough people here love their art/collectable pieces but we are niche and a very small community.  Things like this discourage newcomers to jump in.  We need to expand not contract our community....




I have told him to register immediately and respond to this thread directly.

Completely agree.  He is registering an account now from what he told me.

Jynxart and frankbitcoin back at it hey. Even if this concept is rehashed there is this thread/memory as a gigantic stain wiped across it.

Actually hilarious this is your comeback post. Slow up on the frantic multiposting.. there is an edit button.

The heard-mind mentality is quite astonishing; no reasonable person willing to stand up and say Frank has always done the right thing and been thwarted.  None. Multiple pieces of original artwork.  Multiple free raffles.  Does it matter?  Clearly not.

  Band-wagon mentality.  Truly sad as collective whole for this community.

I condemn any artwork that is 'plagiarized' or copied.


I've repeated this NUMEROUS times - we originally hired our own artists. Then we partnered with artists.  Some artists we partnered with were not vetted properly.  Those products were pulled.  Same as this one.  MJ knows this.  Vizique knows this.  Yet they say nothing.

Sometimes the bandwagon-approach is more easy to choose and stepping outside of forum 'etiquette' takes courage.  Yet no one displays it here.  Truly sad, especially for a community that is based on trust, compassion, uniting, removing division from central banks, etc.  Seriously. Where is your head?

Side note:  You'll notice I haven't posted any artwork for sale on here in a year.  It's because, like I said, I am no longer the owner of the company.  I am a private citizen going about my business, trying to help a newcomer to this scene.  Normally, newcomers would be welcomed.  Issues can be brought up, addressed, fixed, and restored. Again, I am against any artwork that is copied, modified, restored, etc. Everything should be original, as I originally intended when I started the company in 2012

Open your eyes.

Additional note: 

Tom has still not been able to post as he said he's still awaiting an approval from admin.



So if admins want to step in and approve his account, I can step outside of this and Tom will handle everything from here.  But no word yet.
