It must be a French thing... brings back memories, but I see its the same with pinball artists..a bit dissspointing if you work on a one-off for yourself.
I really got pissed off a few years back when my Racing Driver Helmets got reproduced by other "artists" , for other drivers. Cheap knock offs, nothing new added for me to steal back..
It stopped me from sharing Hi-res images online, i got fed up being the one to invent, to protect the clients thought out personal designs from lazy rip offs .
Funny how even before mine is done completely and shown, I stand a chance of being called a Copy if I take this to a show in france ..
And about giving credits..Im over that. The "artist" could 've first asked. Common courtesy in my book.
Anyway, moving on, new project ahead. This time round I will keep it a little closer to my chest. For obvious reasons .
