Is using photo references or photomanipulation for concept art a crime now or something?


Yeah, there's a reason why tracing is frowned upon. It's plagiarism. It's one thing to copy someone's facial features or be inspired by them, it's another to trace a photo of said person almost verbatim and pass it off as original concept work.

When was it ever passed off as original?


*cough* DmC *cough*

It's not in DmC. It's early rejected concept art.

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to be original, while still being part of the same genre. Bayo stole a lot of it's stuff. FF frequently does.

There's a difference between unoriginal concepts and cliches and outright stealing said concepts verbatim. That Donte concept is the perfect demonstration of how terrible DmC is, there's nothing original whatsoever in the game and what is in it is terribly executed in the worst possible ways.

That is to say, when you take an idea you normally try to put your own spin on it to make it feel like its part of the concept. What Ninja Theory has done feels more like they just stitched a bunch of ideas together. It comes off as steeling rather then inspired.

Complacency can be a sin. Gamers' have lost their pride.

Well if it's sooooo difficult for poor NT they should just keep making their low-tier third persons games and stop boasting. Simple as that.

Being original is difficult.

Blatantly ripping off isn't.

I'm not going to pretend as if this game isn't a lazy mess, I'm just saying it's way easier to go off of what someone else has rather than doing something yourself, especially if you aren't confident in your skill to create.

Oh that is 100% true. I fully agree with you.

Sadly, NT, or rather Tameem, has been boasting about his skills, and the absolute best he could offer was a poor ripoff that is so dilluted it'd make homeopathy experts scream in outrage.
