Needs a 'furries' tag.
Is there an image that's supposed to be rendering here?
Using Chrome on Ubuntu 10.04 and not seeing anything...
I also see no image and no link. Sad.
There is no photo because, whatever photographer you are thinking of, that's a fine example. It's endemic.
Unless the person actually has gotten so good that people have already started stealing.
Somewhat similar is the insistence that fan people credit the guy who made that sweet custom Supernatural icon... from copyrighted material.
There was one person on LJ who insisted that she didn't have to credit icons unless it was made entirely from scratch. Yes, even the fonts used. The two gentlemen above, which I made from scratch, apparently didn't qualify because of that last bit.
Of course, they were a real piece of work anyway.
