Reader Sir Donuts came across something rather interesting. After seeing artwork for Jon Schiller's upcoming SINS! line, he thought something looked familiar. Well, if you check out his "Jon Schiller Likes To Trace" post, you can see some rather striking similarities between Jon's "original" SINS! line and some other anime characters.
I know of a number of artists who read the site here at Plastic and Plush and I would really be interested in their feedback. Do you think this is a case of "unintentional similarities" or "flat-out plagiarism"? Has your artwork ever been copied and passed off as someone else's original?
