Yup.  Trevor Goring / Kev O'Neill, Prog 21.

I take it Steve Sampson is getting his own thread?
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

The main point of the thread was to highlight lifting of specific character and technical designs rather than more general photo reference, but having said that...

Rondo


Bollo



Then again, within the context of this story it's perfectly sensible.  Took me years to figure out who Rondo Hatton was, though.

I always enjoy it when he comes into a film, it takes me back to this story!

Eh? Can you explain that in context to the first post and differentiate it from the countless Steve Sampson swipes?

I think we need to see what it is/was that Mr Sampson swiped design wise (which is the thread) as opposed to Sampson's use of photo references for drawing/painting which is what it seems you're referring to...

Well, I'll try... In the first post I put up some examples of designs (alien, spacecraft / sub, orbiting prison) directly lifted for use in various strips in the Prog.  This kind of things seems more interesting (to me, at least) than the use of photo-reference for random characters, which is presumably fairly common.  Steve Sampson might feature more than most in that respect, I know - but is it very interesting?  I called the thread Sci-Fi Swipe Files as I thought spotting alien and spacecraft / tech designs lifted from other sources might be a bit of fun.

Except the Austin, Bolland posts etc are just photo references. Glad to have been the straw that broke the camels back, as Mr Sampson was with my mega subscription back in the day.

I don't know how you differentiate between, say Star Wars swiping existing guns (Mausers, Sterling Machine Guns for the stormtroopers) and similar being done in comics.

And it could go the other way as well - this looks rather similar to Mr Alpha's Westinghouse.

let's just post anything here that has inspired design or images - that cuts out the 'does it fit on the thread' debate.

However don't just say -so and so used references - Give a nice happy example that you have seen.


Simples.

So, your point is that you're the third person to misunderstand what the thread is about? I don't understand what it is that you think you've broken...but I'm picking up on some hostility here.  :o

With an elephant in the room and a monkey on your back, mate. I too am unsure I've understood the point of the thread - does this count?

Probably not but you've at least included an image (or link in this case) to illustrate your point! I like cats.
