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...

The absence of the wing mirrors makes the top pic look completely different...

Odd.

Can you see Morkin's images of Balachor's Revenge in this thread? (He also used vgy.me.)

Think it's a trust issue between Chrome and vgy.me, works fine in IE.

Good spot with Game Over and Mutants!

At first I didn't notice it at all.

If someone doesn't really see it:
SpoilerShow
It's the helmet. See two little "horns" at the forhead, nose cover, edges around the eyes. Too much similar for a coincidence
And here it is isn't obvious who copied after whom ;)

I can't take credit for the spot, but I can answer the question of who copied who. Bob Wakelin explained that Mutants was copied from Game Over.

I can't find an exact match, but Movie looks like it was influenced by Casablanca:

Also I suspect Cavelon might have been influenced by the movie Excalibur:
