    Indeed, try using this excuse when you're a teacher who raped and indecently assaulted as many as 27 female students, that would be pretty awesome.

    Fuck it,any anime can hav the same pose in the picture as long as the models doesnt resemble each other,i dun consider it plagiarism. The model pose of the seaweed packing and to-love-ru dun even resemble each other,its only the positioning thats almost the same and u call it plagiarism???!! Wtf then like that if any two paintings have the same object positioning by chance but different theme,them u can go around sueing ppl lah??!!!

    cash and lawsuit and loss of credibility

    really i think the only thing "bad" about tracing is the copyright infringement. like that urasora guy, as a collage artist he was excellent...

    I don't mean what's so bad about being caught infringing on copyright....

    I mean what's so bad about a little bit of plagiarism anyways...

    I mean, c'mon, FUCKING DISNEY plagiarizes and DENIES it too!!

    Compare....Osamu Tezuka's "Kimba the White Lion" vs. Disney's "Lion King"

    Exact same storyline, completely identical main character, with the exception that Kimba is a white colored lion and Disney's Simba is a normal lion...

    Of course, if anyone so much as make a work RESEMBLE a disney licensed characters, they'll send their lawyers to rape you...

    What I'm saying is...is copyright infringement really that bad of a thing?? fucking Disney does it, and no one is accusing them of it.

    ok, what if you spent years and thousands of dollars, and putting yourself through all the stress to make some great work, and some asshole comes along and steals it from you and claims it as your own? That wouldnt be fair would it? Them profiting off all your hard work. Itd make you angry right? Youd feel you deserve compensation right?
    As an artist, and a writer myself, copyright infringement is the worst possible thing that can happen to your work. Trust me, if you were an artist or a writer, youd understand.
    Douchebags like Disnet happen to be a world renowned company with billions of dollars at their disposal, hence why then can by pass these laws because they can afford the lawyers that will come and rape you up the ass

    Just because Disney does it and gets away with it doesn't suddenly make it right.

    Infringing copyright disrespects the voice of the original creators, as well as sometimes takes revenue away from them for the sake of someone else's undeserved profit.

    there's a difference between accusing and having legal action taken
    yes, people did accuse them of it
    no, no one sued them over it. why? like someone said, lawyers and enough money to make it go away or drag it out in court forever

    it is speculated that the movie was originally supposed to be a remake of kimba but they were ultimately unable to acquire the rights to it and had foolishly begun production before securing the rights after someone along the line had assumed that it would not be an issue and that the rights were guaranteed. they have likely learned their lesson as it is embarrassing no matter how much money they may have earned.

    just because disney "got away with it" does not mean it is okay

    What's sadder is that he traced the anime art instead of the superior manga.

    Looks like his mama raised him with low standards.

    Oh wow, I trace manga all the time, as well as real photos, just to get the postures right.

    'Course, like the artist mentioned, I make sure to change the face, hair, and clothes.

    Dammit, what I'm doing is plagiarism then, and should I get popular, maybe I will incur the wrath of 2ch as well.

    I'll be willing to dare them to identify the source of the drawings traced from real life photos though (i.e. the ones offered on free photo sites).

    Plagiarism occurs when you misappropriate someone's authored work as your own. Merely tracing a picture doesn't make it plagiarism. Attributing yourself as the original artist of your trace is plagiarism.

    Tracing and photo-referencing are two different things.

    Tracing for practice and tracing for works for class, products, projects especially those that will earn you money are also two different things.

    Yeah, what's wrong with tracing something to begin with? There's a finite number of postures anyway so it's bound to happen, that chars have the same pose as others. Maybe he should have left a leg or an arm away, making the char disabeld/moe.

    Knowing to draw the human body in any position from any perspective takes skill, and gives you almost limitless options with your art. Unless you're going to be a shoujo artist, only knowing how to trace is going to severely limit your art, especially when you're confronted with a position/perspective you can't find a reference of.

    Make your own 3D renders. That's why I do. A "virtual" model!

    And because it's your own, no one else will ever know ... plus, if you're like me and have been drawing for 10 years, you know exactly where and what to clean up. It's amazing.

    I start with a "thumbnail" sketch, then a rough, I pop open Cinema4D and basic humanoid, move it around, hit render and use that to help with errors.

    I agree that there are infinite amounts of poses that have already been drawn, but no one draws the same exact line, that's where styles comes in to distinguish the way they draw. Tracing gives you confidence as an artist, but if your not willing to go through the frustration, concept, failure of drawing, then tracing will be your limit as an artist.

    Exactly. If you have to trace to get a posture right, you simply can't draw. Anime characters are extremely easy to copy if you tinker a bit with a pencil, but understanding how warped human proportions can give birth to idealized characters is something else.
    Nowadays it's not rare to see kids who can't even copy by freehand claim to be artists thanks to tracing software...luckily this doesn't stop their art from being mediocre, regardless of how good they can color/edit the base lineart.

    Some artists in Pixiv trace other artworks..
    Some "ARTISTS" in Deviantart steal other artworks..

    I don't call those pussies artist, being afraid of not being able to draw something decent or good, resorting to tracing/stealing art/hoping to be praised. These are the people who don't put their heart into their drawings.

    These particular comparisons are way too weak to fire the guy over. Then again Japan is probably overflowing with artists that they can play along with these witch hunts.

    why is it always TO-Love-Ru? I really enjoy his work, but tracing and calling it your own is really pathetic.
