Theiving fool!

So I was cruising DA (in a good way;)) and I noticed this:

Silver Surfer

For all my longtime fans if you've read the Heroes Reborn Fantastic Four you'll recognize it (it's from a splash page in Issue 8,9 or 11.) I told the guy it was stolen and was told to prove it. Well I don't keep those damn comics (the dogs eat them) and Google and yahoo was no real help. So if you have the issue could you scan it or link me to a scan of it so I can make this guy eat some crow;)

Seriously though, I don't own the art or rights to the piece so I can't TOS him or anything. I'm just calling him on the theft;)

Now fly my pretties, fly!

Looks like I'm back, hope you like the new art.

best,

Brett

EDIT: I just received this note from him (word for word, apparently my name is Dumb Ass..cool!)

'first off jim lee drew it not dumb ass'

He's now admitted stealing it just not on his site;)

I'm very sorry to see this.

Stolen art DEFINITELY isn't funny. Personally, I don't believe artists get paid enough to do their work. Art involves chemistry and dedicated experimentation and although I'm no artist myself, there's visible effort that goes behind an idea being brought into reality.

I have little respect for people that steal an idea in order to get one. Tell them to !@#$ off.

PS- I don't think 'dumb ass' is a valid name. Don't use that signature anytime soon!

Is the link broken Brett? I get a file not found. Or did he turn tail and run?

I have all those issues near me. LOL the only time I actually liked the FF was when you worked on them.

He took the picture down an banned me from posting anything. He also seems to be threatening anyone who doesn't agree with him.

He's off his nut!

Best,

brett

I didn't see the pictures that all the fight is over but I do see in his portfolio a real inconsistency in his drawings. You can easily tell what has been freehand and what is traced even if he is saying otherwise. The freehand stuff isn't very good, but the Anime drawings are quite good, but too clean.

I do you a lot of Brett's and Michael Turners for references when I draw, like poses or certain cool little items they might have, but never copy a drawing out right.

Brett said...

He took down half his stuff. Anything that was stolen was taken down and he's now saying he never stole anything. He's REALLY not smart. No good talk him;)

Copying is fine to learn, I did it. Art Adams was my favorite artist at the time. Just say what your doing and credit the original artist we're happy with that:)

christopher said...

wow, I think you pissed him off Brett. You would think he could at least cuss you out with proper language and sentence structure...lol.

I think you lost a fan...what ever shall you do now?

Brett said...

Goodness me, I'm almost as bad a speller as Homer. That should say:

"apparently Evolution isn't the only thing they ain't teaching in your hometown."

I must look positively foolish! And your blog is just lovely Homer.

Tell him to stop it or the 'Silver Surfer' will kick his ass.

Chris,

from what I've been told I'm now down to about 20,000. It's a sad, sad day for me;)

Raid,

I'm afraid he might try to pick a fight with the Surfer!

Best,

Brett

Brett said...

Even though we've switched to moderated comments he STILL keeps sending them. Apparently he wants to fight me! I shall just keep deleting them. I'll post some new stuff tomorrow.

I find it funny that he can't seem to stop himself. He has to have the last word...

Oh well.

Best,

Brett
