"Gearbox is one of my favourite developers. Would have jumped at the opportunity to work with them. Oh well," he said.

I don't think they mentioned you... But keep on dreamin', buddy.

It's even kinda hilarious given that these clouds could be drawn by any 5 year old about the same way.. so why the artist didn't draw his own clouds.. who knows. This is one of these things where I just would like to know "how" this came to be. Maybe they had an intern do it for 0 pay...

My first thought was "homage", but as nin pointed out, the zig-zags are a bit too exact. Either the Borderlands 2 artist managed to accidentally make them exactly the same from memory, or there's some tracing going on.

Look very closely and the zig zags are 100% completely identical!

Wait....Borderlands 2 is the sequel to Empire Strikes Back?

This just seems slightly....redic.

Inspired? Maybe. Ripoff? Slight reach.

Yeah the clouds are the only thing though ;p No idea why they did lift that, but how is it anything but unprofessional...

At least the original artist got in the news because of it, he should be thankful

Look at the second picture in that article. Notice the clouds?

LOL, a silhouette with a scene inside of it is NOT copyrighted. So dear illustrator, please go away! Inspiration is taken from your artworks, if you don't like that. Don't make artworks.... sheesh (That said, 1 background element looks very identical to the original)

Still, if he gets worked up over that, he should never browse deviantart.
