Does this count as copying?
« on: April 02, 2017, 07:04:19 am »
Hi everyone! So I'm not sure if I accidentaly heavily referenced a pixel art I created... When I made the pixel art I had a free icon open and I was using it as a "reference sheet" because at the time I didn't have one.
I'm not sure if I accidentaly heavily referenced the free icon...

Here's the link to the free art: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/13835288/

The pixel art I'm referencing to is my profile icon in this website.

Thanks for any help.

I think you're fine. There's enough of a difference that I wouldn't call it outright copying.

I think you're fine too, it never hurts to credit the artist though.  But you obviously didn't trace and there's multiple differences.
