Someone made me a logo - help

Post by Monique_marion_may » Sat Jun 25, 2011 5:31 pm

Hey guys, someone made me a logo for my tyto dreads page. I don't know this girl, and i didn't ask her to do it. She did it because she was bored so wanted to do it. She told me she didnt draw the girl. My problem is, i love the logo, and would like to use it, but i'm really worried about where the image of the girl has come from? Apparently its been edited and changed, but I don't wanna start using it, and the find out from someone it's theirs and be acused of stealing. But someone was kind enough to make it for me. What do you guys think? This is the image http://i52.tinypic.com/2pophfo.png

ach, I can see where the temptation comes from, that looks fantastic! But unfortunately, unless you can find the original owner of the picture and get their permission, I don't think you should use it. You wouldn't want to tarnish your reputation if there was a big to-do about it :/

Have you tried asking the girl who edited the image where she found it? That might lead to the original source.

As a last resort you could always commission someone to create something similar for you :). What is it that you like about it? The pose? The colours? The style of drawing? If you know these things, a non edited version of someone elses work could easily be created while not copying it per say :)

I'll say that if it's on DA, it's hidden pretty well with few tag words. I looked through pages and pages of drawings of girls with dreads and didn't see it.

I have asked her, just waiting for the reply. Thanks alot for al your help. I've looked around and can't find it either. Im not sure why I like it. Maybe because someone took the time to make it without being asked haha

i recognise that drawing!
i know satans_fairy (not sure if she's on here) is using it as the group pic for the 'alternative styles' group on another forum, and i *think* its an old image from the london edge flyers (i may be wrong) http://www.streetwear.ch/tradeshow/lond ... tions.html same art as the one seen here...
but i can tell you it doesnt look particularly different, just a bit brighter
