Re: Take This


This is another Tough one. Awesome design. But the Fire is graphic, not realistic, which ruins the "illusion of 3D". The sword does feel like it's coming closer though. I would buy this (if I could wear anvil), but is it Trompe-l'œil.

This is absolutely STUNNING work! The perspective on the sword is right on the nose.

The sword is definitely Trompe-l'œil! The entire image doesn't have to be,in fact most peoples designs aren't entirely that one perspective.

I agree that the flames detract from the perspective you gained with the sword. My other issue is that though it's a cool looking design, I don't see any parody here that would make this fair use.

Yes it does. The fact the Rejectionator hasn't shown up for 4 days, and most people aren't on topic, doesn't mean the topic isn't here or shouldn't apply. It's like saying beating someone with a stick is ok, because you only hit them in the stomache, and other people were using tire irons.

I'm not up on how much of the imagery from the game is trademarked, but I think the elements that are visible in the image may not be sufficient grounds for a challenge. It looks as much like an 80s metal album cover as a piece of Zelda art.

I'm assuming this is talking about the comments about the non Trompe-l'œil nature of the flames. You can't see it but I'm giving you the stink-eye. That's the single most trollish thing I've read today.

I'm afraid your assumption was mistaken. I was referring to the comment about fair use. The flame is clearly graphic and not realistic, that much is obvious. The matter of it being fair use on the other hand is open for debate. A use of ones imagination to see potential parodies or mashups is essential as you demonstrated by comparing it to an 80's metal album cover. I did not mean to be "trollish," only slightly humorous. Humor is a subjective thing it seems, so I will apologize for my attempt.

Good Day to you sir.
