Notice the similarities in the photo above?

Of course you do. You have eyes. (If you don't have eyes I'm sorry for accidentally calling you out, but really why are you using this app? There's like, a bunch of picture-based humor here.)
In any case, what you're looking at here is this: The left image is the cover for one ofChris Brown's newest singles "Zero". The image on the right is from the manga City Hunter, which ran from 1985-1991. (It was also later adapted into a K-Drama)
The similarities are undeniably clear. What isn't clear, however, is whether Brown and his business people are going to credit the image as an homage of some kind or just try and take credit. As of right now, no artist is credited with the image.
That being said, knowing Chris Brown, he's probably going to claim sole ownership of the image.

The man has no personal integrity, why should he have any artistic integrity?

@Reiah92 well the issue is really that there is no credit paid whatsoever. this cover and single has been out for 2 months and no credit paid to anyone at all, city hunter creators or otherwise
@VinMcCarthy can you prove it? Can you tell me you sat down with them everyday and the credit was or wasn't given, there are things that underline what is being put out into the world and he could have given them credit and they not want their name up but still recognized just how y'all have recognized the work y'all are bring back something old and awesome work done by the creators but maybe they want to lay low and enjoy the money the album art brings.
This pisses me off
Well this conversation escalated quickly. Hopefully he gives the originator credit. If he doesn't, then the originator needs to take legal action.
This post is dumb. Making all of these assumptions and jumping to conclusions as if you were there. As if you know the guy.
