Hi man I did reference some work from comic books,but its a metal super man with a hummer not hulk. Anyway if what I did give you some bad feeling or make you out of sorts, I really sorry for it. It`s just a work,hope we can let it go. And I will try to make my works more different from the references in the future work. Thanks for your advise!
I took the time to overlay both images (flipping and rotation included) in search of tracing matches and honestly, while the pose is almost identical, this cannot be considered as theft; a lot of illustrators reference their poses from other images, and this one in particular is an excellent painted render.
There is also the coincidence of nailing a pose already made by a different artist, without even being aware of it; has happened to me, can't really blame him. However, if he really did use the Hulk cover as a reference, he should credit it.
Not necessarily a carbon copy of it, it just happens that both artists are really good and their anatomic rendering for the nailed pose gives an uncanny resemblance. However other elements like the fingers on the hand, the head, and the overall tilt of the body are not the same (I am comparing the Hulk cover to the other version of this painting that's on his gallery, where the barbarian has no armor).
Sadly, if we were to say that poses are copyrighted, then everything everyone draws is a ripoff of something else, even down to the simplest walking or standing pose. The point is that given the quality and consistency of the rest of his gallery, I would hold back from saying such things.
