Heh, whatever, it's just taking some inpiration from Ced's design work....the way he does stuff, it's hard not to.

What bothers me is that this guy clearly has ripped off my idea of flipping the base mesh upside down. I knew I should have patented that....

Yeah maybe this is only inspiration but the thing is that we have to create a design with the basemesh and i think if this guy win or whatever it's really unfar because the design doesn't belong to him.


For me it's clearly the same thing.... the only difference is the quality's work ....

...easy there guys, those aren't for the comp. Nor is anyone ripping of Ced66, those are off Ced's own website, they're in his personal work gallery. I think someone was just pointing out the quality of his previous work.

Yeah, like Feiilis said, I'm sure they're for inspirational purposes only.

Well, to be fair, the one in the middle is for the mini-Dom War competition.

Okay, wow, yeah. Sorry, I was wrong, two are Ced's for sure the middle one isn't. Guess I missed the point of the image.

I knew there was a series of three busts on Ced's site, I recognized the two right away, and I was thinking the third was the third one in the series, and that I just wasn't remembering it clearly, but that's not the case it seems.

Guess someone was pretty "heavily inspired" by Ced's work then.


I'll be quiet now before I make myself look and dumber.

Ok, fair enough, it's clearly inspired by someone else's work, but I'm not sure why you felt the need to register here to raise it? If it's an issue for you, why not raise it with the poster on the board it was posted on? Coming over here and doing it feels a bit off to me as it almost looks like you are trying to bait people here into potentially causing trouble on another board by heading over there and complaining. I'm sure that's not your intention, but making that your first contribution to this board does strike me as a little off when there's a more appropriate place to raise your concerns

Perversonality, take this from my own experience man sometimes the only way is to go public with this stuff or nothing ever gets done.
For me it feels the dude has not only been inspired but had Ced's artwork up as reference just working "away" from his so its dodgy to me....

You should at least try to approach the subject with the person first rather than immediately going for the mob-complaint mentality though mate! Give them the chance to come clean about what they have done first and all that jazz!

From what I can remember, the next mini is indeed after the main event (which starts on the 12th)

I might have missed something, but what are you guys talking about? What images are ripping off of Ced? Where are they at?
