Why are you commenting on zillions of old threads?

Please cut it out.  It's quite annoying.  This and the silly video thread makes me think you're just trolling us.

you said: "If you adopt a illustration style that is quite similar to someone, example same hairstyle to the original one, but with different eyes and face features, does it consider a form of copyright infrigement"

if your new work causes confusion (meaning people think it was done by the author you are copying) then it is infringing. if the average person understands that it was not done by the original author, it is not infringing.

only a court of law can determine if copyright infringement has occured.


Dayum everyone beat me too it.

P.S. The advice you give is really poor, check your facts don't waffle :D
