Re: You need a pixel cat

So I see this got rejected because someone linked a photo that it was pretty clearly based upon. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought it was never an issue to use a photo as a reference, and I don't see evidence that this is somehow just a photoshop filter or something. Does that make sense?

Pretty clear the photo was traced. You can reference; you can't copy.

To me it clearly looks like a filtered version of the photo. comparing the dark/light patterns on the cat they match up exactly. I actually recognized the picture immediately just by the thumbnail while skimming entries.

I suppose it could be a manual reproduction, but it would have to have been a painstakingly slow process to get it to match so precisely.

If you are going to copy a picture go back and look at how the "pro's of WOOT" get away with it..... it happens a lot !!
