combofiend worked for capcom. chances are your artist friend was paid by capcom for those pictures and combofiend had the permission to share these.

(unrelated note, combofiend is my cvs2 hero)
Typically, when you join a game company you sign a contract that almost always has a Non-Competition clause attached. I know this is true for Next Level Games, so this would be impossible for my artist friend.

No, I contacted him last night and he said he is unaware of his artwork being shared by an official Capcom rep. He seemed a tiny bit annoyed, but ultimately doesn't really mind given that it's not his IP (his words).

I just find it very surprising, Capcom distributing unofficial artwork and claiming it their own. So that statement of Combofiend doing people "a solid" is somewhat facetious given that he stole this artwork and is distributing it freely. 

In any case, this cabinet turned out really well. @vaderag I've shared this thread with my artist buddy so he can see how his artwork turned out on your cabinet. If you're interested in contacting him, let me know and I can ask him if he's okay with me sharing his email address with you. He's a super nice guy, as all Canadians are (except for me  >:D ).
Yeah, I'd love to give him my thanks! The artwork is awesome

On a practical sense I wish I'd found him earlier - I spent ages increasing the size of the images for print quality and getting the blur right, refilling the colours etc to get rid of artifacts! Might have saved me some time [emoji23]

Man it's ---That which is odiferous and causeth plants to grow--- that they're distributing his artwork without licensing it. Just because they own the trademarks doesn't mean your buddy doesn't own the copyright to his work. I'd be pissed in his position. But I can only imagine the hassle even trying to raise a stink would cause.

I don't know why artists always get the shaft like this. It's like how comic publishers presumed to keep the original art until Neal Adams told them to ---fudgesicle--- off because owning the copyright to the drawing doesn't give them a right to the actual drawing. There's always something isn't there? :soapbox:

Cool cool. PM sent to you!

Yeah it's always like this though. Hence the phrase "starving artist", art is always underappreciated...perhaps it's because it's not tangible like a physical product.  It's also hard to value, and can hold different values based on different people. And plagiarism sucks from an ethics level.

Anyway, I don't want to derail this thread too much. If people want to add to the art rant topic, I've got a thread created in the Artwork section that I've keep going to for a while now. Feel free to add your thoughts there!   :cheers:
