I picked up this issue kind of late, and was very pleased with everything in it, then I flipped to the end and looked at the art contest winners and was a bit irked. I’m a pretty big fan of the art of Satoshi Urushihara and had asked very early on if UDON would consider Urushihara as a guest artist. Well anyways, when I saw Virginia Berrocal’s entry, I’m thinking, “Umm ok, this an almost exact carbon copy of the illustration in Urushihara’s Venus artbook”:
Shouldn’t there be some sort of credit shown of who the original artist of that picture is? Is it even allowed to just straight up copy somebody’s work and enter it into an art contest?
