    This is both drawings and photos, not sure what thread to put it in. I done this for a friend and printed it off at A3 size then framed it. the drawings were done in Xara 5

    Copying other people’s work and saying, “I done it,” is simple plagiarism, so I would stick with the words, “I copied this from this source,” and put the source link in as well.

    Just some constructive advice, friend.

    Nicely done Derek. A great combination I'm sure your friend appreciated it, I know I do.

    Thanks again for your input... First of all for James... I don't trace anything... My friend asked if I could put the two children in a picture of winnie the pooh. I draw all the characters first from books so they are not exact, scan them into the computer and redraw them in Xara. Although I can draw most of the characters from my head anyway. Everyone in the world with the exception of yourself will know that the characters are not my design or creation so they know they're copied from some source. However I still drew the pictures... Maybe next time I'll put in that I didn't take the photos, they were emailed to me... In case you were unaware, many artists copy other artists work and get there ideas from other peoples art.

    I'm sure the same images appear in books as well as on google images. What's your point James?

    Yes and?... I have a number of books belonging to my son with the same pictures in. I have no doubt I would have looked on the internet to find the pictures but I have no need. If I get asked to do another one and I don't have the pictures, I'll check on google images, thanks for the tip! I just wonder, if I didn't do the picture then who did? I looked at your thread, putting back Einstein's tongue. I take it you didn't do that.... The word " hypocrite " springs to mind! However, it doesn't really matter how the picture was done, as long as the person it was done for appreciates it!

    There are, of course, copyright issues here and I think James makes some good points but I believe we are in danger of falling foul of the spirit of this forum in favour of being over zealous. Well, that's how I feel today anyway. If tomorrow somebody says "look what I did" and it turns out to be a carbon copy of something I did last year, then I'm sure I'll see it differently. But today I'm a little tired of reading people nit-picking over legal issues (valid legal issues) when really I want to read about graphics. Time for some chill pills.
