I didn't know the name of the author whose work I copied. The photo of that work was given to me. I was told it's quite like mine and asked to make an copy of it.
I know name now. I'm a bit surprised by such a big fuss that author made about me'd forgotten to mention his name

LimKis, maybe you should clarify who the "I" is in that quote you have from Transfuse above. Otherwise you're going to come off sounding like the obnoxious/unreasonable one here, when in fact it's the other way around and you're the author whose work was taken uncredited...

Congrats to the other artist for what I also consider a very strong piece, but it is more than a little irritating that they did an -overpaint- (or at least a patchwork) without citing the base material.

He didn't really make that big a fuss, just asked that you had put his name on it. Seems quite fair to me..

As much as I like your work, I have to agree with the original work's author. Think about it, how would you feel if someone used your original work and didn't mention you?

This is friendly advice from one artist to another: be careful with these things. Some people are very sensitive about this, and some will even go as far as to sue you for copyright infringement. I use reference in my work all the time, but I never use it without permission or when I don't know who made it. It's just safer that way. :)
