Mmm...It'd be a hard call, but I do think it's meant to be original. She's in a different place, the arms and faces and expressions/angles thereof are different...I don't think she used you as ref. I myself have used the fishing pole idea in times past.
Well, this person did do two totally different characters and while the female on your pic looks ghostly, the other's has legs and the wolf looks like he is giving her a piggy back and she is just teasing him here. Perhaps a little bit, but not much? Am I making sense here?
I've always been a big fan of yours, but I'm not sure I understand how, even assuming she based her art on yours, how it would be art theft or even wrong to use it as a pose reference. As long as it's not a direct replica of your art, it's hard to be sure... and even then, you can't really claim poses as your own original thought.
I never said it was wrong, and I never said it was art theft. All I wanted, if she did use my work for reference, was to just put a little note in the comments or something. She obviously is a skilled artist, with lots of her own ideas. I was just curious as they looked so alike.
No, I understand. Those comments were made towards the other people commenting on this poll as well. (My apologies for not making myself clearer.) It's just really hard to tell things like that when it comes to art. I've been guilty of looking at people's art and going, "Wow, that's a interesting pose and I can see my characters doing that!", but I don't really think it's worth crediting a person just because of a pose they used. Of course, depending on a higher chance of everything looking very similar, I guess I can see where you're coming from, too. Hard to say.
I got a question to you too: If I draw my ocs in this pose do you'll think that I copied from you? Think better, not cause someone draw a pose like you did, mean that he/she copied from you. This type of "pose" is old already, a lot of people already done drawings with this type of pose. If she/he recolored, or copied(traced, made a base, etc) you need report, but she/he just have the same idea. This is normal.
It wasn't the fact that she used the same pose. It was the fact that if did use work as a ref (she has told me she didn't) that I wouldn't have been credited for it. Even the words "I was inspired by this pic" would be just fine. I just think the comments section is a way of saying how you created the piece, what inspired you and so on. Just my opinion anyway.
but if she said that she isn't used your pic as a reference, is true. in your midna and gannon drawing the midna is in gannon's shouders, in the other, the girl isn's, I believe it is just a coincidence.
