It shows how much you know about 'a lot' and copyrights. He has no right to 'modify' the original image without written approval from the author. He has no right to go around and say 'oh it was my idea I came up with it from a nickname on the net'. It is stolen. All he did was add another tree, add a small house in it and cover the water which in my opinion it would've gone much better being there. And if stealing is copy and paste why did Apple sue Samsung?.. And they even won. So yeah please read copyrights terms.. maybe not entirely stolen but in my opinion is stolen and should not be allowed here any longer. And also he should be ashamed of himself. That's why world has gone this way, because of this kind of attitude. But hey I added a black dot over your images, its not stolen, it has an extra black dot!!
If I design a house with 3 beds and 2 baths, and you design one with 3 beds and 2 baths but has a slightly larger living room and the kitchen is on the opposite side of mine, is that stealing?
Why did Apple sue Samsung? Because they're trying to create a monopoly on the mobile phone and tablet market, that's why. Apple is trying to maximize its profits.
Adding a black dot and completely changing the concept of the image are not the same thing.
Honestly, I get where you're coming from and what you're trying to say and respect the central idea behind it, but I think you're wrong. And if anything, this is a great representation of the kind of artistry that can be inspired by other peoples' work. Maybe somebody will create another work from the inspiration that they were delivered by THIS image rather than the original one.
last thing, going back to your previous comment "How'd you like your art stolen and just add something n call it his? LOL." If you're in art for the recognition, you're in it for the wrong reason. That's a discussion we can get into.
