usually if an artist designs a certain character that they use over and over, they can easily copyright it and claim it their own. obviously a lot of people do this, especially if they are using that character online, so it can be stolen.
It's further evidence (not that it was needed) that anyone with a modicum of artistic ability can produce Ramy-style junk. Yet when it's under another person's name it doesn't shoot to the fog. And I'm not the least bit surprised.
first off, i think if there is evidence of anything, its that its obvious whoever subbed this had more than an a, "modicum of artistic ability" this design doesnt scream newbie to me, i think the artist knows what they are doing. Also, if you are copying something, its not that hard to reproduce it. obviously if it were easy to color and shade like ramy, then they would have done it to the rest of the design and not the only part they obviously had reference for.
lastly i didnt think it was any big secret that ramy has a ton of fans who come here and vote for his stuff when he announces he has a new submission. that is why his stuff shoots to the fog. this person obviously isnt telling anyone openly about his design here, and even still its pretty close to the fog, which makes me think people like that sort of thing.
besides all that however, if this isnt a ramy sub, it is either pandering for votes by straight out copying ramy's death character, or its trying to mock him in some fashion. either way its unprofessional, disrespectful, and petty.
