Guy Ripping of art...
 
I came over this guy on deviant art: http://lahabz.deviantart.com/art/Mys...m-SD-164124993

Apparently he claims to repaint scenes "frome some game" as he puts it so nicely.

But you can clearly see some flaws:
1. The left part of the cape is still showing in his picture.
2. The doorway is narrowed, cutting away the trees. Result of cutting out character.
3. The left of the stairs is clearly made of brick. But in his version it starts out as bricks but then suddenly becomes a plain wall were the character have stood.

This is a screen of the original scene:

Anyhow, i'm kinda mad at this. Especially when it is Bill Tillers work. Should at least credit him properly.

Anyone that can recognize any other pictures? I can with a few, but cant remember from where.

Anyway...Just had to ventilate myself haha :D

peace out!

Heh, seems he's used a bunch of casual adventure games also in similar pics he's linked there :P

People are weird, I have to say that.

Wow, thanks for the link, I've been wishing for a site like that :) Also directly shows all the games these pictures are from, even the ones he claims are not from any game...

Too bad one can't comment if one is not a member.

Stochie 06-10-2011 03:40 AM

He should have given credit to the actual game and artist, but as an artist there's nothing wrong with copying other peoples work as an exercise. It's good practice.

Im an artist myself, and i agree totaly. Studying pictures and copy peoples art is a great way to learn stuff. The problem i have with this guy is that he basically aint drawing. He just gets a screenshot, cuts out the characters and claims he "copied the scene" from some game >.<

Owskie 07-05-2011 04:00 PM

i reported him and he hasnt been online since.

Monolith 07-06-2011 06:18 AM

Actually his last comment was on that same artwork page 2 hours ago.

Owskie 07-06-2011 08:52 AM

well that is unfortunate, i hope some others report him as well.

Monolith 07-06-2011 04:29 PM

Yeah, I sent in a report.

Actually, you're right. Upon further inspection, the two images are practically identical. That guy is up to some shenanigans.
