The picture below is drawn by JohnnyUtah and another picture (which I will post) is drawn by Soulja boy,

http://ceosouljaboy.deviantart.com/#/d2q hn4g (Soulja boys)

http://ceosouljaboy.deviantart.com/#/d2q hn4g (JohnnyUtah's)

My question is, Did Soulja boy rip off JohnnyUtah's picture? If so, the never he has to claim it as his own.

Johnny posted his picture on the 29/03/10 and Soulja (or whatever the fuck he calls himself) posted his on deviantart on the 29/05/10.

Soulja could've paid Johnny, like a commission.

I seriously can't tell the difference between the two of them , They both look nearly Identical to be honest.

Well if he paid a lot of money I don't think JohnnyUtah would mind sacrificing a picture.

His sunglasses are missing and his pendant has a different facial expression. The first one was drawn by JohnnyUtah and the second one was supposedly drawn by Soulja Boy.

So the one that says soulja boy is JohnnyUtah's.... and the one that doesn't.... is Soulja Boy's??
confusing.

Get JohnnyUtah in here NAO.

One eyebrow says "SODA" and the other says "SODMG".

No, he fucked the links up. I was referring to the pictures he posted. The first one he posted is JU's, and the second one he posted is Soulja Boy's.

right... i was just saying that the first picture has soulja boy on the glasses... and that one is JU's.
The second does not say Soulja Boy anywhere on it... but its Soulja Boy's.... and i was merely stating that it was confusing.

Maybe JohnnyUtah made a few variants of the pic and asked SB which one he wanted??

Then SB should have at least credited JohnnyUtah, which he didn't. It looks like he stole it.

No... they look a lot alike. The artwork is the same, body proportions, etc. If SB really did commission JU to draw this then he should have credited him. If not, then all SB did was take the drawing and change a few things.

That's undoubtably a copy from Utah's work. All that's changed is the glasses are removed and the facial expressions are changed.

Eagerly awaiting Johnny's reaction to this. I think Souljaboy has plagerised artwork before now if i recall correctly.

I'm guessing it's a commission, but I'd be interested to hear Johnny's response.

...

Jeff made that picture for Soulja Boy. I don't know if there was any money exchange, but that picture is Soulja Boy's now. He can do whatever the fuck he wants with it!

Who cares, it gives Jeff some good exposure.

Sorry, I'm not very good at organizing.

I wanted to just see what people thought that's all.

I don't think he would give a fuck. Jeff drew it. He probably added the shades too for a different version.

Yeah, this thread smells.

So.... anyway... the only person I see shedding light on this is JohnnyUtah, himself.

Anyone know how to get him over here???

Souljaboy gives no credit to Jeff there at all. That's the problem. Had the OP not spotted this it's likely that anyone seeing that would have assumed he drew the image and not Jeff.

That's why I asked the question, did he copy or not? Like it says on the page that its copyright of soulja boy.

Like I said, if Jeff gives a fuck, which he probably doesn't, he'll do something about it. I just wish you kids can stop playing Sherlock Holmes and stfu.

I wish you would stop playing the "mature" (/sarcasm) adult who can't fucking chillax. leave them be and let them have their fun. no harm's being done with discussing this so stop being such a killjoy pain in the ass.

It is favorited on his account, so he probably just wanted to give it more publicity.

Did anyone think to PM Jeff (JohnnyUtah) about it?

That's probably the best way to reach him...
