At a glance, the Resident Evil 5 box art certainly looks awesome. However, as frequent visitors to website VGBoxArt can attest, the Resident Evil 5 artwork looks awfully familiar.
The Fan art looks better than the one Capcom used.
Yes it does. but this has been posted several times.
Coulda sworn someone posted this news story many weeks ago :|
Buried for being older then last nights turd.
Old news. Doesnt matter if capcom made a similar one. Its their images, they could do what ever they please .
yeah i agree but some credit would be nice.
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.
Lmao "He should be thanking capcom for not suing his ass for misrepresentation of their product." 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.
i agree the fanart looks much better than capcom's
Anyone ever stop and think that this "fan" might have been from inside capcom or somehow got a hold of the cover art before it was released to the public? Maybe it was capcom planting their seed by spitting out fan art... Let's face it--those are too close for coincidence and I doubt that capcom would risk copying someone else's work without asking (Yes, regardless of copyrights and images...)... and since we havent heard of any law suits or any complaining from the "creator" of the fan art, we can safely assume that his design wasn't stolen. Not that he would ming if it had been.
This is like a month old.
guys dont mind me... a bit of nostalgia if you will... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
capcom obviously has VGBoxArt permission to use it
