Two different artists are selling a YCH of the same/similar pose (No one copied) But their styles are very different. How do you feel about this? 

59 deviants said Indifferent
10 deviants said I just have this voice telling me this pose I'm drawing for a YCH has been done before and it makes me quite... anxious(?) ;v; Is that the right word? Idk
4 deviants said It bothers me

There are only so many poses that are even possible, all of which will have, at some point in time, been used before. Some are more popular than others at a particular time. It's the same with writing, there's only around what, half a dozen or so original stories (or tropes if you'd prefer) in the world - everything else is just a question of variations on a theme. Of course, we still all want to 'feel' original, which is why, when we see things similar to our own, it can create all sorts of feelings (me, I usually get depressed, especially if I see it 'before' I've finished my own piece).

I wonder what kind of pose it is. When it is a unique pose and my ych turned out rather famous, I could see some others get inspired and make something similar too, and I would feel a bit strange but as long as they don´t trace my art, I don´t care. I can´t do anything against it anyway because when they didn´t trace, they didn´t so anything illegal and every going and acting against them is bullying then.

To be honest don't worry about it. More then likely any possible pose has already been drawn 100 000+ times already. While little details might not be the EXACT same, let's face it. There are only SO many poses that any physical body can be put in.

Can't help poses look similar as long as the style is different there should be no concern really. I mean if that was so there would so many ripoffs from dead artists would be ridiculous

I say indifferent because you can only have so many poses, and you can't copyright a pose in the first place, so of course there will be similar poses, even when it's unintentional. I don't think there's anything to worry about!

I'm more concerned if I duplicate the same pose in my own gallery :'D
