Granted Bruno's was closer to the original on a detail level due to his efforts, but replacing the heads with rabbit heads is just as much parody as "stylizing" the scene, I think.
Not looking for a rejection here since I think this is a great first derby entry, just interested in the applied logic.
Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it.
I have a feeling the rejectionator is just a way of keeping the lawyers away. The seven samurabbits, even though done by hand in amazing detail, was still basically a recreation of an existing image which is owned by kurasawa's estate. This isn't directly from any press photos or still frames from the movie so it's refrencing the scene without calling out the lawyers. If I had just traced that movie cover, I'd expect to be rejected right out of the gate. IMHO at least.
