Deleted Hope

Journal Entry: Tue May 26, 2015, 1:39 AM

Yesterday Vilk42 :iconvilk42: sent me a very kind and friendly note in which she asked me if I was inspired to her work (which she created in 2005) to create my own "hope." Here is her artwork. The last flower by Vilk42

As you can see our both works are very similar. But I swear I had never seen her work before. But who could believe it? I know from personal experience, there is very little time, the feeling that is felt when we discover work that looks strangely like to our. So I decide to delete "hope" this evening. I dont want to be regarded as a thief or a copious.

:iconvilk42: I hope you will  believe in my sincerity.

I want to emphasize that :iconvilk42: never asked me to remove my work. It is my own decision.


I thank all those who gave favs and featured to "hope".


The hope was short lasted ;)

Pour moi le plagiat n'est pas du tout évident, c'est le même modèle, c'est tout. Donc deux créations avec la même idée, ça arrive très souvent ;-)

Think it's quite nobel you removed this wonderful work you made. Personally i think it's unnesessary you did. DA is a big community and a lot of us use the same stocks for our work. So unfortunately work or concepts will look alike once in a while. We all take inspiration in things we see, hear or read.  I also have been inspired by the endtime-theme in the past and would have probably made a similar looking work in a same setting.

Greetings,
Ed

Thank you very much for you kind support Ed. :iconmoominhugplz:
I always tried to find my inspiration outside the beaten track and this time I'm probably stayed too close to them. This will serve me a lesson.
But fortunately I had to deal with a great artist. : iconvilk42: clearly asked me not to delete my work and I am infinitely grateful to her.
Hope is still there and I am more than happy!

I think the model alone inspires this kind of image, I would have put her in a similar scenerio. In fact I saved a model the other day and I had in mind what I wanted to do with but after looking at some of your work I noticed you had used the same model in a similar scenario I was thinking of putting her in. So great minds think alike :P

Sorry, in german:
Man kann das Rad nicht neu erfinden!!
Wir alle lassen uns von anderen Werken inspirieren!
Es wird immer mal wieder Bilder geben, die einem anderen Bild ähnlich sind.
Lassen sie sich nicht entmutigen! Ihr Bild ist großartig!!! :love:

Comme je te l'ai dit sur ton oeuvre Hope, je pense qu'il y a moyen de s’arranger entre vous deux pour mettre des liens en expliquant qu'il s'agit de la même brillante idée survenue avec 10 ans d'écart, de le tourner de manière humoristique du genre "quand les grands esprits créatifs se rencontrent, 10 ans plus tard", ou quelque chose de ce genre ;)
Encore une fois, il serait dommage que DA se prive de ton talent ;) D'autant que, comme tu le mentionnes, la personne t'a interpellée tout à fait gentiment, donc elle doit être ouverte au dialogue et il n'y a pas de raison pour que tu supprimes ton oeuvre ;) En tout cas c'est mon avis Blowkiss valentine fella (Love) 

Et comme je l'ai lu plus bas, nous sommes tous plus ou moins inspirés par les oeuvres que l'on voit, de manière consciente ou inconsciente, ce n'est pas de la copie, c'est juste comme ça que les artistes fonctionnent, en s'inspirant de ce qui les entoure et de la façon dont ils ressentent les choses ;)

D'autres personnes m'ont également demandé de ne pas supprimer "hope".  Je suis un peu perdue... Mais je crois je vais suivre ton excellent conseil et discuter avec Vilk42 qui semble être une personne tout à fait amicale et charmante.
Merci beaucoup ! :heart:

I understand you are but I also had a note from a guy who thought I was inspired from him a while ago...he had to believe me when i assured him that wasn't the case and he had to believe me, i am trustworthy on dA as well, he can ask anyone of my friends about that...i also showed him that I had in previous works where I have been inspired by someone that I had that in my comment box with a link..why should I not have that time...he can ask anyone he can believe me...I have my own imagination and creativity ..I also showed him by links by searching on dA that there are tons with works with a lion/tiger and woman on (it was that on my work)....I believed me and that was the end of that!! We will all stand up and tell you are a deviant to trust for sure...it is a coincidence this happened and happens all the time...I can show you a lot of works which are similar just by searching it on dA....then they too are inspired by him and who says he was first..lol...just give the links to other similar work on dA...who says it was her who inspired you?!..if there are tons of them here!!!

Salut. Nous sommes tous inspirés par d'autres artistes et leur travail. On me dit de temps en temps que mon travail ressemble le travail sur certains artistes. Quand je vais et compare mon travail avec eux, je peux voir leur point ou je ne fais pas. Je ne trouve rien de mal entre les deux morceaux et si il ya une croix sur le style, il arrive juste. Je ne vous inquiétez pas à ce sujet et continuer à créer comme bon vous semble.
