sorry fellas should have clarified that the devil/main liverbird in that pic was a copy and paste job, im not claiming that but the rest is my work. Work away anyone who wants to use it.
C'mon mate that's porkies, those liverbirds carrying balls are not yours, they're by kitster - you may not of knew who did the original but you know it wasn't you, don't credit yourself when you've clearly done another cut/paste/cutout job. You can take credit for construction of a piece but not for the original artwork.
Someone asked me to do a particular kind of piece for them and it ended up with me using pics of liverbirds i found via google - even tho at the time i didn't know who did them originally i made it quite clear they weren't mine (http://www.redandwhitekop.com/forum/index.php?topic=198423.msg8741360#msg8741360
). Personally I wouldn't use other people's work - the aforementioned was as a favour for someone else.
I'm not saying it's wrong or to be avoided, that's down to individual choice, but you can't claim it as your own and if a piece of work that someone else has done is included in a picture you construct/design, at the least the other person should be credited and for me even if you can't cos you don't know who did it, it should be stated that the 'liverbird or whatever' is the work of someone else. (really ideally you should ask permission to use other people's work but i know that's not always possible if, like you probably did, found them on the net with no clear author)
I don't think the photoshop thread guys are pedantic but if we smell bullshit, we're gonna call it. Just play it straight mate and then there's no fuss or bad rep being built.
EDIT: oops, just saw JMc's post - anyway, probably worth stating twice, but honestly we're not pedantic, no really, we're not.....
Oh and on a side note, i've never seen that main piece before of the manc devil shitting himself at the liverbird - MacPhisto did you finish it in the end mate cos it looks fucking great (we didn't win the league, so maybe no?)
