OPP has made a statement regarding this matter, quoted in post 344. -hk

The Exalted book is here (for backers) and while it's mostly good, I'd like to have a moment to point and laugh at some of the art. Like this piece

So glad the cheesecake isn't gone this edition. (do you see what I did there?) But seriously, this piece is terrible looking. At least the entire book isn't like that though.

For exibit b, let's look at this one:

Looks good, right? Except...


It steals from at least four other works. Pretty sure this is copyright infringement.

Anyone have any other examples?
Making this it's own thread because I don't want to shit all over the actual thread. (And seriously, most of the art is really nice. There's just a couple of turds and some bags of cocaine in the soup.

Tracing isn't copyright infringement; it's just tacky.

(and probably a violation of your agreement with your publisher if you agreed to give them original art)

The cake piece is sad because I remember that incident and its art from Masters of Jade being awesome.

I'm on the internet so I'm no source of illegal advice, but I'm pretty sure that those are just manipulations of the other works, which is illegal.

One would have guessed that that one Hunter/Devil May Cry piece was enough trouble for Onyx Path. And now this. :-/

Why do artists shit on contracts like that...?

Has any game ever done Poser art well? Honest question. It almost universally looks cheap to me. There are a few examples in the E3 core that are somewhat on the border of looking very, very Poser-ish, nevermind that most obvious example. That one isn't bad, it is laughably bad for a product that raised what, $690,000?

The person in red in the foreground of the Chivalry: Medieval Warfare picture is showing you how not to hold a shield while fighting. That's a very helpful thing to do.
