Old news. Doesnt matter if capcom made a similar one. Its their images, they could do what ever they please .

villevalorox3621d ago

yeah i agree but some credit would be nice.

Joey Greco RULES3621d ago

youre right. its theirs. the kid who made a similar one is S.O.L.

@ville: oh he's getting his credit. right here on N4G and other fanboy websites. lol
i dont think capcom should give him anything. thats like asking asking a band to give you credit for using their music in your movie. it doesn't work that way----the movie studio gives THE BAND the credit.
He should be thanking capcom for not suing his ass for misrepresentation of their product. lol.

Might i ask how this is? Its fan art 1st off. And im sure Capcom likes to see fan art up. Its like free advertising almost. And no its not. if you inspire someone with their own work you should get a little credit.

*Looks on urban dictionary what S.O.L. means*

YES---inspiration is something you cannot sue for.

BUT he didn't DRAW the character for his box art---he photoshopped them.
He used the ACTUAL images that Capcom has created, without permission.
The game is copywritten material. Its kinda like when you use a movie clip for something, you need expressed consent from that studio.

I hope this helps.
