Razkurdt removed his Kaine pictures from my club
When I went to his page to ask him why, I read his journal. Realising he was a hypocrite I left a message informing him of the contradiction between what he says and what he does. It wasn't really about the pictures any more for me, just a principle.
I liked his picture so much I did my own version of it, it is done with the same model as him but I lit it differently and though it looks the same it is not, look at the position of the hair for instance. I posed it so it is showing more at the back and the shadow is a different shape, you'll need to see them side by side to compare, but this is not his work
However he has summoned me with a copyright violation.
Take a look:

RAZKURDT DOES NOT OWN THE COPYRIGHT TO THE IMAGE OF KAINE, NOR DO I.
THIS IS FAN ART!
SQUARE ENIX OWNS THE COPYRIGHT TO NIER AND IT'S ASSETS, INCLUDING KAINE.
MY ART MAY LOOK LIKE HIS AT FIRST GLANCE, BUT IT IS NOT.
I POSED AND LIT A MODEL THAT WAS PORTED FROM THE GAME BY CROFTY.
I REPEAT...THE COPYRIGHT IS OWNED BY GAME PUBLISHER SQUARE ENIX...NOT BY RAZKURDT,
Anyway it is posted again in another slightly different version:
