Periodically, I get sent some links to some art that is either a recreation of something I have done, or inspired by some various pieces, such as THIS ONE:


The original piece done by me.


And the recreation, with the following description underneath it:
"i am SO PROUD of this.
its a recreation of the original by the amazingly skilled Alex Pardee."

It's an awesome feeling that someone would spend time and energy drawing one of my pieces because I grew up redrawing other artists' pieces whether it was comic books, album covers, etc. I think that's an amazing way to learn techniques and problem solving and eventually flip it into your own.

With that being said, keep it up!

That is, unless you are the person who did this one:


The original, done by me.


And the recreation.

Now, that bottom piece is an amazing painting. But what was peculiar about it, was that the following description was underneath it:

"i dont really know what to say about this piece it was just a weird dream with a bunch of nonsense and color...
ps: for all those who think this is a RIP OFF OF ALEX PARDEE,
Fuck off!"

Hmmmm, that's an AMAZING coincidence. A guy skeleton, a girl skeleton (as You can tell by the bow), profile view, holding ONE hand, staring at each other, vomiting in each others faces, and the vomit turns into butterflies. And you are SELLING PRINTS OF IT???? Ok, I'll buy it. Good work, sir.

So yah, in short, redraw my shit, it makes me smile and feel really awesome. and i dont even really care if you dont mention me. but if you get called out on it, and you DENY it, and then try to MAKE MONEY off of that shit, I will re-open my mummy-filled sarcophagus and force that wrapped up gimp to curse you to infinite diarrhea and vengeful blood.
The end.

Or sue his ass. No, really. That is WAY too many coincidences. I mean, it's a totally awesome art, but you just don't have that many things in common with someone's work. I mean, a few things, like when you read a book that has a lot of similarities with Tolkien, or something, but that's just too crazy. That guy's begging to get sued. And I'm not one to usually say something like that...

It makes me angry when I read this stuff, there are some people who don't respect originality and stuff. They are dealing with that guy anyways (DarkTragedy).

Hey Alex what inspires you to make this art.

What a jizz stain! You should definitely sue that guy (or girl). How dare they tell people to fuck off when it's blatantly clear they redrew yours. It's super similar and they have the nerve to actually try to fool people like they can't tell.

What a cunt, how can anyone be stupid enough to even suggest that isn't a direct copy? :roll:

You should at least report them at DeviantArt.

Something about the skeletons in the fraud scream awkward to me. They're so detailed but are positioned really awkwardly. Anybody with a better grasp on art understand what I'm saying?

in the one which is the fraud the skeletons appear to be floating and the "artist" left a lot of empty space on the bottom, so it just looks like its missing something,

you know he drew a KEY which makes this masterpiece completely original

I'm thinking he was just referencing you while trying to sound like a douche. If he thought that it his was original, he would have just left Alex's name off, and then told people to f-off. BTW, I just watched LiveLavaLive in a hilarious video, wearing a t-shirt with 'Backpack', as in like, the above art. Isn't that awesome?

No problem. As for the guy who stole that picture, I think it got removed from DA.

Anyway, his stuff is in a similar thought to Alex's, but that picture was a 'recreation' and he knew it. Yeah, it's gone.

[Recreation because he DID draw it himself, it just wasn't his idea.]
