This is such a blatant rip off of this skin:

Albeit yours is done much better, but still you were clearly copying it.

I wouldn't go as far as to call it a copy or rip off. It was based on the same idea...or inspired by it.
Just like you wouldn't call these skins: skin#1 skin#2 skin#3 copied or ripped off, but they were all based off of or inspired by the same idea.

The reason I consider it a rip off is becuase it had only ever been done once. Then when you did it everyone praised you for originality. 
Once again youve remade the skin a lot better than the original though.


Also what makes it different is that those 3 skins are based off a technique. The ship of your skin and the ship of his are almost pixel for pixel- identical other than the coloring and some additional sails.

I don't see why it matters how many other versions there are.
Also, not sure what you are looking at, but the pixels of the ships are all completely different.

The difference between this and the examples you gave is  that is a technique, where as this is an original skin idea. 
By pixels I mean that the ships are very similar.


Furthermore, what really bothers me here is that this skin was praised for originality. I just think its dishonest to not even leave mention of the original skin you were basically replicating, but with a lot better skill than it was previously made.

I think most of the praise was for the monster design, which was done completely different than that skin. The only thing that was the same was both skins use the boat for the head, which I could have given credit to but didn't at the time. But again, I was only using the same idea and took inspiration from that skin to make this skin. I see nothing wrong with that.

if most of the praise was for the Kraken, then you deserved that, the kraken is really good.
Just what bothers me is,  nobody had ever made a ship like that on the head, but the person who did didnt get much credit for it due to the monster sucking. Then a few months later another person makes a skin with a very similar ship head (you) and instantly gets famous, leaving the other guy in your shadow basically, even though they were both using the same idea.
Your skin is considerably better, that is apparent, I just think it sucks that such a good idea can swap hands without anybody realizing or caring.

He got plenty of notice and praise for the skin and I was one of the people that praised him for it. It got 18th place in the contest which is really good for a skinner at his level. My skin proved more popular because I executed the idea better. So I think things worked out just as they should have.
This deserved 1st!!!

There are no skin viewers for the new skin format. I took screen shots in MCskin3d and edited them in Photoshop.

Don't stop entering contests just cuz you keep winning them.  These noobs need to step their game up. If you do retire, if will lower the bar diminishing the overall quality of skins in contests and on pmc in general.

No, no! I mean that with the intoduction of this new skin format, people now have endless possibilities. It looks like, trying to be poetic combined with poor knowledge in English can result in such nonsenses! :D

Edit: Or simply said, I like the skin! :P
