I feel so dirty....looking for opinion on copyrights...thanks
ok - so, a client owns a touristy shop here, and they do silk screening on t's and sweats too. I did a few keep calm things for them. Now they have asked me to do a SOA spoof, with cape breton theme. So last night i drew a pic. But i dont really know where spoofing ends and copyright infringement begins. They tried to teach us in college, but even the people teaching the copyright course seemed a little unsure of the grey areas.

here is the pic:

it isnt finished yet. i will now vectorize it and add the cape breton elements. He will have the island in the ball, and the local flag waving behind him. He needs to be cleaned up a bit. too. I am not much of an artist, haha. So please no critique on how the skull doesnt look quite right.
so i know we probably dont have a lot of copyright experts here, but i thought with everyone making memes, and everything seeming to end up bastardized and on a tshirt, maybe someone out there has an opinion, advice, or precedent for me.
i am never comfortable with ripping off someone else.

I'd like to more about G.G. herself. Then I can answer your copyright query.

I recommend to search on the internet the bone structures. I recently started to learn the bone structures of human body and I can already see some mistakes. Take up the medical books or something like that and look up the finders. There are no round thingies. One finger is actually made of three bones. Also I recommend to look up human skulls, I can see some mistakes there too. It's just an observation. I don't know much about copyright. But good luck with your drawing. Getting inspiration isn't copying.
I'm a bibletard, sorry for the inconvenience.

thanks for replying, but as i said i am not looking for feedback on the skull. it isnt the important thing, atm.
and i cant call it inspirational art, because if it is compared to the soa graphic, many elements from the skull and robe are identical.

Not all things are identical. Copying others is not a crime, it's a form of art. I worked at a t-shirt store and made t-shirts with exact copies of the images and nothing happened. If they would use the exact image then it would be copyright violation. If you make an image with modification it isn't the exact image, it isn't a violation of the law. Many artists copy other artists and sell their images. It's not against the law.
