TF2 Heavy in many, many, variations.

Couple days of on and off work on it.

Team Fortress 2 is owned by the Valve Corporation.

(In order from left to right. Classic heavy, Plumber Heavy, Masked Heavy, Spetnaz Heavy, Chicago Heavy, Mad Heavy, and Russle from Suvivor Somoa and Heros v. Villans. The ones going down in the same color are variations of the variations)

They say it is based/referanced on work by vic. even though mine is larger, better pixel depth, over 32 bit, difference in pallet, and figure..but apperently it is based on his (her?) work. Though I have seen that work, I still diligate over weither I based it on it fully or in part. (I forgot my referances, to be honest, only looked them over once to make the first one...)

However I based my work on referance pictures from google and the words "TF2 Heavy"


Updated: Added more, fixed preview misspelling, added info, and just noticed they are kinda dark..DAMN LCD SCREEN!

Alright, I'll go talk to vic.

Hi. These are quite obviously heavily inspired by Vic's sprite and they're probably edits of it. Is there anything intrinsically wrong with this? No, but it's not allowed here without the artist's explicit permission. You're welcome to ask Vic to stop by here and give this the ok, but in the meantime I'm going to have to send this back once again.

Thanks for understanding, and sorry for the nasty comments.

Yeah i honestly don't see what you guys are talking about with him copying vic and such.

Nxzfreak (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/20/2010 15:50

it aint similar at all in my opinion, at least he took the initiative to use a reference like that in the first place, and thats if he did. imo many things are based on many other things, doesent mean that you need to call it stealing/ripping/copying.


(pretty much disagreeing with mataru there :D)

Gikon (Level 1 Seaman) @ 5/20/2010 12:08

Just becuase I make new line art, new pattle, shade, variations, and others does not mean its 'ripped'

rip,ripped,and other variations of that word mean directly copied/stolen from a outside source that does not offer a open source version of said item.

Now words like 'new' 'variatied' 'modded' 'based' 'referanced' and 'roughly styled the same' all mean that a new item is similar to a old item, but not the same item.

 Also as I have recently just looked at Vic's work, it seemse only ONE part of my larger part is similar to his (hers?), which would not even closely make it 'ripped'.

I hope that makes sense to you, and also can you please stop being so blatently childish? It is quite rude to others, and myself when people do such things.

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 5/20/2010 10:08

AT YOU! Just because you shade and stuf dosen't mean that it is not a rip!

Gikon (Level 1 Seaman) @ 5/20/2010 09:22

Who was that pointed at, and why are you trying to post bbc on a non-bbc place?

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 5/20/2010 09:18

Yes i agree! Can you stop being so DAMN STUBBORN!? [img]http://www.clipartguide.com/_named_clipart_images/0511-1003-1003-0878_Stubborn_as_a_Mule_Metaphor_clipart_image.jpg[/img]

Gikon (Level 1 Seaman) @ 5/20/2010 09:10

Right, Sure.

Same could be said for anything YOU make, though this is my opinion, and that is yours.

I'll be the better man, and respect that opinion.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 5/20/2010 09:03

its not based. its a shitty recolored resized edit of his work. you might well call that a false claim.

Gikon (Level 1 Seaman) @ 5/20/2010 08:03

Also updated, resubmited for revision, and added your claims of base-ness.

Also antymattar, what does 'manned' mean?

Gikon (Level 1 Seaman) @ 5/20/2010 08:00

I giggled at your false claims, but whatever, same thing can be said for any work for any reason.

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 5/19/2010 21:25

Ay man, dont you think he should have atleast stated that he has ever evin seen vic?

don't you get manned for that?

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 5/19/2010 21:12

this is basically a resized version of Vic's TF2 sprites. and ireally doubt you ever asked for permision or had any idea from where this came from, so its basically an edit from someone else's work without mentioning anywhere that this ain't yours at all.

just sayin'

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 5/19/2010 21:07

atleast I said that I learned from vic you b******! This is clearely a ripof! When I learned from his piece I actualy made something new not modified it!!!

jamesmorrow07 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 5/19/2010 20:23
