Ol' Drummer Pic
This is just a picture of Drummer which I used to get his markings before I drew his character ref. :) As you can see, his white leg markings stem from his grandfather Jafiya (Pawface's awesome design 'husky marking' idea, pretty unique to the site - not sure about elsewhere), white his dark markings come from his grandmother Jet. At Pawface's suggestion I gave him a kind of matted (dreadlocks?) mane to make him stand out among other character, I hoped. Now, this leads me to a question . . .
(Mods, please let me know if you think this may cause some drama . . . )
. . . My question is this: what do you think about it if your designs (or just characters) are possibly being copied / taken ideas from? Do you find it complimentary or not? Oh, and what do you think about giving credit for ideas that get used? Should credit ideally be given if you know who/what inspired you?
