Agreed, great thread, I'm very surprised at the similarity of IK+ in particular.
Just going slightly Off-topic, I remember reading a preview in "The One" about Dune & how they had to change the character graphics for one of the characters as they too strongly resembled Sting's character of the movie version.
Likewise I seem to recall reading something about Last Action Hero(or was it T2?) suffering the same problem where the computer version's main sprite couldn't closely resemble Arnie, despite it being an official license!

Thumbs up Very, very funny thread indeed.

I never noticed the similarities between games and personalities.
When I come to think of it, I remember an advert of Cabal which features a blonde soldier whose face is very similar to Dolp Lundgren. I have no pictures, though.

Pretty Cool thread .....

I can't believe the resemblence between Steven Segal and the IK+ Guy.

WOW that's kinda spooky

But isn't it funny that most of the best scene-artist copied other artist's work?

Yep.
The Vallejo pics. Damn! Please no more! I really dont like Vallejo that much, I preffer Soriyama There is an artist who should have been copied a lot in the demo scene, with all his cybergirls!

I think there were some C64 Soriyama-copy pics though...
