Symbiote Spidey Cemetery Sig by RadillacVIII Symbiote Spidey Cemetery Sig by RadillacVIII
Overwhelmed by the darkness of the symbiote, Spidey seeks for some answers at the cemetery.

Credits for Spidey goes to: Clayton Crain(pencils), Scott Hanna(inker) and Dan Kemp(colors)
I do not claim to have drawn Spidey, this is a signature manipulation.

Was it a lot of work cropping the cover of Sensational Spider-Man #38? :/

You could at least credit the artists who made this pic;
Clayton Crain (pencils), Scott Hanna (inker) and Dan Kemp (colors)

By not giving credit people think it's your work, that's called plagiarism.

I did much more than just crop a stock. I added many adjustments to the image to make it look more realistic and creating an dark and spooky atmosphere. So don't accuse me for plagiarism. I did spend a lot of time adding textures such as fog, enhancing the lighting and shadows.

I didn't give credits since it's a free stock that anyone can use.
I would have given credits for the stock if I had to ask the artist for his permission to use the piece.

Here's an image showing the original stock and then my added tweaks, so you clearly can see it's not a cropped stock.

Damnit, you should have just said nothing, now I have to explain crap :lol:

It's not a free stock image, it wasn't made primarily to be used by other artists (that's what stocks are), it's a comic book cover and more importantly someone else's work of art. While it would be silly to write to Marvel to ask permission to use a promotional image to make a sig pic, derivative artwork should be credited, unless it's blatantly obvious you're not the author of the artwork's base (like Duchamp's L.H.O.O.Q.).

What you did and the original look quite alike, which would be okay, nothing wrong with sig pic making, but you should have credited the authors or the source or at least said 'I made this using a Spider-man picture'.

BTW the definition of plagiarism which is "The wrongful appropriation, close imitation, or purloining and publication, of another author's language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions, and the representation of them as one's own original work."

I see your point :)

I usually only link to the resources and give credits if the creator of those images wants me to or have written that it shall be done in their description.
