Even seeing the source here I don't feel disappointed. The notion of originality vary a lot, for me Twoflower managed to put a great mood and fresh details into his illustration.

For me it's a copy of someone else's work, in a graphics compo, in 2011.

Well, I don't get your variations for the term "originality", IMO, recoloring a piece of art (which is already a finished product in itself) breaks the originality, its a kind of On/Off switch to me. I'd like to hear more of your thoughts on this topic.

I, however, also consider that a non-original work might attract me, mood, feelings and stuffs.

Now, onto a different topic, because what Mermaid just said made me think about it.

I think that mentinonning the date is an important element for the viewer, to understand the context. AFAIK, redrawing/copying in '92 might have been a totally different story. It seems to me that, in 2011, loaded with cheap scanners, image search engines, quantization and supersoftwares, straight copying may be a pretty easy task.

Anarkhya: I think there is a lot of "Twoflower" in the pic. He managed to upgrade the source and to present it classy. I think the originality/individuality here lies in adding value and not doing just a plain rip-off. Still... there is no explanation for people's preferences and me likes this Bladerunner-ish sci-fi redo.

Okay, we won't agree on this but I see your point, thanks sir (:
