Unintentional rip-off. by taeshilh Unintentional rip-off. by taeshilh
Quality of deviation is kind of terrible because my scanner has been sold! I'm getting a new one on Wednesday. Until then, takin' pictures of junk. I've been in an art block so I've been doodling junk.. this will be scrapped in future.

OH GOD

OH GODDDDDDD

I DID NOT EVER SEE THIS MOVIE EVER OR KNOW OF THIS CHARACTER UNTIL NOW

WHY HAS NOBODY TOLD ME

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

For those who don't understand the end, that necklace is from the original Bittersweet story.. before the revamp where Lucy acquires a ribbon.

BUT THEN SHE'LL LOOK LIKE SUE

Lol it's an amazing movie. (Studio Ghibli, what do you expect)
But Yuki isn't like Lucy XD

When I first saw Lucy, I thought she was the little white kitten from the Aristocats XD

Bueno niña, eso tiende a pasar, en especial si el diseño de personaje en si es sencillo... De hecho, también paso algo parecido a mi con personaje Raphael O:, así que se lo que se siente.
Eso me paso después de leer el cómic de ~megawolf77, Coyote : Is it Father's Day?. Hay bastante parecido entre 2 los personajes (dibújalos a ambos en un mismo estilo y parecerían gemelos lol)... la cosa es que aunque entre en conflicto al principio me dije: "ah bueno, es una coincidencia" (lo chistoso fue que cuando desarrolle al pequeño Raph, casi lo hago un coyote en un principio ^^;)

Respecto a Lucy, sería bien difícil deshacerte de su cinta... en especial con la lindaage=2"historia que hay detrás (quote: "although you may not act it... You'll always be my beautiful girl", pero que linda frase dijo su madre T__T)...
Quizás vas a tener que agregarle algún detalle más... aunque creo que cuando le agregaste dos mechones a los costados de su cabeza lograste diferenciarla, aunque sea un poco.

Yee! The Cat Returns is my second favorite movie. Lion King gets the front Car of my "Movies of awesome rollercoaster." I bet you'd like it! :3

Anywaysm WHAT A CONICDENCE! Waitasecond, isn't the prince in the cat returns grayish/black?

But so is Leo from VGCats XD I don't worry all that much with them because Mike was created years before Leo, plus there are notable differences. Isn't the prince in The Cat Returns odd-eyed? There are various other features.. you can have a grey cat in a story without ripping off another grey cat.

I think Lucy is only a big difference as she is basically cookie-cutter Yuki.

I would keep her with the ribbon, because she looks cute in it. Looking at other cartoons, it's not uncommon for a cat to have a ribbon around her neck... so it's not like you are directly ripping of Ghibli... I really wouldn't worry about it ^__^ Haha... anyways, you didn't know from the beginning, so I'd say it's okay.

Hm.

Make Lucy have a silent bell attached to her ribbon? I don't know. Although white cats with pink bows arent uncommon (Not that Lucy isn't original; she totally is) but for example look up the Aristocat character Marie.

I don't think you'll have much trouble. =D

:icontaeshilh:
taeshilh Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2008  Professional General Artist
I actually did remember Marie's existence some time after the ribbon-making, but I always thought Marie was considerably different from art style alone.. plus she's got that ribbon on her head.

I used to think she was a remarkably ugly character, so that never bothered me ":-[" I would freak out more over the mother. Even if she has a much different accessory.

But on another note, if you really hate humanity (and your fans) you'll turn Lucy into an Isabella clone from that Twilight book.

Only so many character designs in truth can be fathomed. xD You just might have to deal with one or two people going "aww its Yuki with an American name!" if you ever sell BCB swag at a convention or something, the irking moment many people selling junk have at those places.

Wow, what a coincidence. D: Dayum!

I haven't seen the movie myself, but I personally think that Lucy's characterization is what sets her apart. I mean, lol, there are so many animu/mango characters that look alike, but it's how the author portrays them that make them all different from one another!

I don't think you have to take away the ribbon, dear. :o It's not like they are COPYRIGHTED OH YEAHHHHHHH

By the way I love the "FFFFFFFFFFF" panel.

Ahh, that's nice. I notice when it comes to people with Sonic-themed characters, they get EXTREMELY PROTECTIVE of them.. like they'll attack the "copycat" for stealing their character and there'll be tons of drama. I always hated people like that. I'm glad you aren't one of them XD

I mean even if The Cat Returns was made years after Bittersweet (Which it wasn't, made in 2002), there would be no possible way either the creator or me is ripping anything off. It's all just coincidence.. I wouldn't even have a freak out if someone from here took Lucy's design or something.. probably giggle at the unoriginality of taking an already generic design ":-["

I've seen the movie even before I started reading your Bittersweet series, but I never thought Lucy looked like Yuki. Lucy is original enough to be recognized as an independent character, and much more complicated on top of that. I won't say anything about the movie and Yuki's - quite small - role in it, but I can say Lucy and her don't share much, except for white fur and pink bow.
So don't worry, I highly doubt anyone would say anything about that resemblance.

oh man xP I'm sorry, the coincidence!!
I've only seen this manga book on it when my friend showed me but I don't think she looked like this (never seen the movie though)

Don't worry, I don't think anyone would have thought you had ripped her off especially when no one even mentioned a resemblance since you've been drawing her
Don't kill Lucy!

That's a pretty good point, with similarities so striking, I woulda thought someone would punch me into reality after.. two years? Since Bittersweet was started in 2006 XD

Yuki is probably the nicest girl ever instead of being a bipolar bitch. *Hit*

And now I want to watch that movie (cats!!!)

Me too! It sounds like a really cute idea for a movie.. even though I'm sure the minute Yuki appears, I will froth at the mouth. And convulse.

Man I am conflicted, maybe I should revamp Lucy for Sophomore year, though Souppy is yelling at me not to.
