Actually, I think people are very smart. I provided a link to one of the pictures I used as the basis, but I used 3 images and manipulated them, edited them, vector-magicked them, and tweaked them endlessly. It took quite a bit of time, and I got input from others here about showing motion and how to place the images on the shirt. I also took the pictures myself (so that was my own art), and I was honest from the beginning about where the basis for the entry originated.
if you say something is clip art from the beginning, people are more likely to be accepting. The folks here are VERY good at finding anything that is remotely similar to an entry, and it is better to be up front.
This is the end of my part of this discussion - you took the conversation away from the intellectual, and while I wanted to clarify my statement, I'm not going to discuss anything with someone being rude.
