Game art copied from elsewhere

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

I can't find the exact source image, but the cover of Eagle clearly shows Vipers from the original Battlestar Galactica movie (1978).

The loading screen of Graeme Souness Soccer Manager is quite clearly based on an image of Freddie Mercury. :D

I disagree. It can be Josef Stalin! :lol:

There are a few cover images I have been struggling to place. Can anyone else help?

1. Shao Lin's Road

Image

The figures in the green and white shirts look as though they are based on Bruce Lee. My best guess is that they come from The Way of the Dragon, but I can't find a matching image.

2. Psycho Soldier

Image

This looks like another Lisa Lyons copy to me.

3. Renegade III

Image

The image of the high-kicking figure appears in at least one other place, so is probably copied from somewhere.

4. Where Time Stood Still

Image

Both figures look to me like copies. Any ideas?

Am I the only one who see the guy in this loading screen is Clark Gable?
