True enough.  I know in college I spent a buttload of my free time scouring the pre-Flickr internet for reference pictures and scouring books of cities and cool buildings from the library (I used a lot of Japanese books so there'd be little overlap with what anyone else was doing).  But putting it on paper is a trick because if you don't do it right, it'll feel like your characters aren't interacting with your background-- it'll look like bad greenscreen.  And you want to avoid that moment of recognition ("oh, they're in the same room that they shot so-and-so in") unless you're actually going for that.  I do save some places for that intentional recognition.

The problem with all of this is that it's a luxury most monthly artists don't seem to have, and it's why I slowly gave up on my dream of being a comic book artist first and foremost.

A photo I took once actually did get used as reference for a piece of artwork, it was a very pleasant surprise (and I was credited)

But you see how Jabba and that snake thing just DON'T GO with the rest of the picture?  That's the giveaway you keep seeing.  If it wasn't a direct copy, those things could have been integrated better, I think.  Not knocking the guy or anything like that, but that's what I try to avoid.

I think he is being a dick about the whole thing. You would think he would be taking this seriously given what's at stake here: his "credibility" as well as the potential financial fallout.

Comic Con Print Hustlers



Every time I go to Comic Con, the first thing that smacks me in the face is how many non-professional artists are selling prints, Tee's and Sketchbooks using licensed characters from the Big Two (DC and Marvel). How are they allowed to get away with this without any kind of reprisal? They make money hand over fist and don't even have to pay any kind of royalty fee to either company for the use of character(s). The above link pretty much spells out what I thought was the mindset of big companies and how what I see at a Con is really small potatoes in the bigger scheme of things. Good read.

Artists sue Marvel, Disney over ‘Iron Man’ armor design



Vaguely similar at best. The only thing they can say that Marvel "stole" from them is the pose on the Poster. Other than that, good luck with the lawsuit. This will be dismissed if it hasn't already been done so.
