so so so nyc of u mimi to make this topic muah!...i was actually waiting for sum place to discuss this thing!
okay so the questions are
How would you define and differentiate between 'copied work' and 'inspired work?'
okay so fir st of all cuming to the definitions!............lemme make this thing very very clear that this editing thing is quite really vast i mean that all kinda editing stuff is present on internet n u can get them damn easily.....so if u download one texture today n made a siggy out of it n was appreciated n the very next day the other person also got a siggy out of the same texture then u cant blame that poor soul for it its lyk wats available for u is actually available for others too...... n as far as editing programs r concerned they r quite limited lyk as far as i knw we have adobes in which really nyc editing can be done so my point was that there is not even a single tool or a single thing that is hidden from others
okay after this much big bhashan
inspired means liking sum other person's stuff n trying to be lyk him/her.......it is really not a negative point.....if everyone try to act gud n become srk then wats bad...
and as far as this term "copied" is concerned i dont think in editing world it even exists!...i mean how can sum1 copy u work! so im speechless on this one!
What is style? Can 'style' be copied or inspired by?
okay style is sumthing that is creation created by sum1 and can only be created by that creator!
never style cant be copied!.....but it kinda being inspired but still the magic dont come along with inspiration okay ill explain along with sum examples.......for example sano.....a fantabulous siggy maker.....by seing even a single siggy made by her i can say oh dats her work even if the watermark is removed y?......coz ii donno whether u ppl can feel it or not but siggies speak abt their makers!.....i mean we all knw that sano baji's speciality is outer glow she strokes the font n give it outer glow even i tried it twice or thrice but still it is like the feel dont come.......another famous example is our very own sayra aka chandni creations...i think she is a revoloutionary siggy maker.....i mean u can have a look at every other siggy n there kinda atleast one effect that is being inspired by her style.......
so my answer is that style can be inspired by but never copied!
