Use of fairytale characters: plagiarism/fraud or not


(Cedric R) #1

Dear NEONMOB,
I have made a pitch about my proposal series which mainly involves the use of famous fairytale characters. though I clearly did not copy anybody’s art and made those characters in another form. I would appreciate even if a single reply would come upon my question.

Thank you!

(P.S. as a reassurance here is my pitch)

I saw your thread on the NeonMobsters FB group … the other artists are correct: classic characters are typically ok as long as it is your conceptualization of the character and not based on copyrighted franchises from major studios, etc. (i.e. Disney’s visions of the Little Mermaid or Pocahontas or similar).

Go ahead and submit your idea and if their are any issues we can resolve them during our series review process.

Thanks!

Joe @ NeonMob

Thank you Sir Joe. I am glad I asked in both ways and am greatly taking in these advices. I promise to make my series great. :smile:

@sima.seal4 this original post is from December 2017 - and while the update is nice, I’m curious why you are resurrecting this and many other older posts that aren’t really active - like this one is over 7 months old.

@silvermelowldy vagrantscout mentioned this to me. I’m trying to not do this.
I was unwittingly/stupidly doing this.

Everything is all good here, just a little curiosity from a new members on how NeonMob has been evolving. Sima and I have been chatting on PM about resurrecting older posts and they will be more aware before doing this in the future :slight_smile: - Joe @ NeonMob
