RIP Steve Jobs - wallpaper by BK1LL3R RIP Steve Jobs - wallpaper by BK1LL3R
As a Macbook Pro user, I decided to do a wallpaper in honor of Steve Jobs.

I’m not a fanboy or very dramatic about his dead, but I liked this idea of having the shape of his head in the missing part of Apple’s logo. After all, now he really is the missing part of the "apple".

I keep it with a simple design, just like Steve liked.

----

I had the idea for my work by looking at this photo that someone took in a Apple conference: [link]

I swear by everything I believe that I didn't copy or steal any ideia. I never copied anything and I never will. During my life as a digital artist, I had to face many copies of my artwork, it would be a complete non-sense if I decided to copy someone. There's no way to prove it, but this was completely my idea.

Anyway, I just found out that this one was the first design with this concept: [link]

I just watched a documentary on Steve Jobs, the guy who came up with this logo was asian!

No, the first person to came up with this concept was Chris Thornley. The "asian" Jonathan Mak then had the same idea an then I had the same idea. All of us had the same concept at different times without knowing that someone already did it before.
Next time read the description and the top comments before saying anything.

It's weird now that Chris Thornley is apparently credited with the first concept and the other guy everyone "accused you of copying" is under fire haha:

I guess there is justice :)

Isto não foi tirado de lado nenhum, fui eu que fiz a partir da minha própria cabeça. Na altura que fiz ainda não era famosa a imagem do Jonathan Mak e eu nem sequer sabia que existia. Não tenho culpa que ele e outro designer antes dele tenham tido a mesma ideia antes de mim.

Doesn't show to be that anymore, a man named Chris Thornley who's 40 and from England is credited with the original design before the Hong Kong graphic student, see here: [link]

On second thought, I do accuse you of theft,
just like how I do not have any proof to prove you guilty, you do not have any proof to prove your innocence.

However, I can say that your "style", based on your pre-existing dA gallery works, is very much(too much so) different to your deviation here.

Deny all you like, but you still have no proof, and the odds really are against you.

This is a stunning idea and a good graphics artist was bound to come up with it. It's just that many did so at the same time. Get out.

"just like how I do not have any proof to prove you guilty"

If you don't have proof you can't acuse someone.

I'm not exactly accusing you of theft, but truly, this is sub-par to the original, which is located here, all!: [link]
the link is the real design hat was made in memory for Steve Jobs; a teenager of 19 from Hong Kong. He also did make Steve's profile in proportion to the "byte" of the original apple logo, making it far superior to the other versions of his idea.

I certainly would not call the mentioned a "copy of [your] artwork."

I NEVER said that Jonathan Mak copied my artwork. I just said I didn't copied his.

An by the way, his is not the first one. This is the first one: [link]
