    I'm starting to suspect the sheer depth of human stupidity can actually rival that of how deep below the Earth and abyss Tartatus is.

    "Never regret thy fall from grace, O' spirit of Icarian flight, for the greatest tragedy of them all to face, is to never feel the burning bright"
    Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

    Hmmm...good call. Then I'm pretty sure he was also responsible for this incident. He just seems like that kind of guy after reading the above article.

    Of course he had to be romanian. Who the hell else should do something so stupid and be hailed as a stupid person? It's by all means perfect.
    EDIT: Notwithstanding the whole nationality issue, it may've been a move made both out of stupidity and perhaps frustration. He seems elderly enough, and may never have achieved the quality he had in mind, making for a whole lot of wasted time. I can definitely understand that sort of frustration. You'll all probably go "Well he should've practiced", "If he was serious he would've made it" and etc.

    He was quickly caught by alert online fans, not to mention some of the artists themselves - who were understandably a little surprised/concerned - but not before local art critics could hail "his" work as "giving shape to three-dimensional art".

    To those local critics, you should really check out more video game concept art. There's a reason he stole it.
    Something good could come out of this.

    I think Genosha is pretty terrible when it comes to theft.

    This reminds me of Roy Lichtenstein who just painted comic strips on canvas and sold them for ridiculous prices. I mean, this guy is in museums and art history text books. All for plagiarism! My art history teacher said "well he recontextualized the images. He wasn't trying to sell comic books, he was trying to sell fine art and therefore it's not plagiarism." Bullshit.







    That last painting sold for FORTY THREE MILLION DOLLARS. D:

    This guy's irony is so deep you guys can't even tell he's a pop artist.

    Frankly, I like the guy's Warhol-esque work. It reminds me of some really good concept artists like Craig Mullins and Sparth.

    At least Icarus tried!

    I wonder how the critics felt after coming to realization that they had openly accepted 'game art', under the guise of fine art.

    I was under the impression that Roy Lichtenstein credited and paid the artists he used. It's still not my taste, but I don't have a problem so long as the artist is upfront about swiping.

    Wait, is this the guy from Lovatnia or is it the guy from Latvonia?

    HunterKiller... you must be kidding. People who babble (talk, write, opine) for a living generally have no integrity whatsoever. Because they don't need to. They just need to keep talking, writing, and opining, and filling up blank media spaces in the process. In the act of doing so, the following truism wins the day: He who always gets the last word, is never wrong.

    At least Icarus tried!

    Definitely. No one had ever heard of them in Elbonia till he recontextualised them.

    Guys, he totally printed them on canvas man. If he would have been even smarter he could have done some "hand embellishments" and rocked the house.

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Question: Did he copy panels from existing comics, or make up his own?
