Many artists use existing photographs of models and performers for reference and inspiration when working on a project. Recently, we discovered several of the avatars we are using for our upcoming Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit’s pregenerated characters crossed the line from “inspired by” to “near duplication”. As soon as we realized the error we removed the images from our blog and social media. Our art director worked diligently with the artist and our printer to correct the problem and ensure new art will be featured in the Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit in place of the old. We have also taken steps to ensure this does not happen again.
We’ve restored art, featuring new character portraits, to the original blog entry. You can also see them below.
