    The resmblance is uncanny, and there are records of the card going further back than the dota 2 item.
    If the author of the Silent Ripper doesn't have any connection with the artist who made the card, then it's plagiarized, baby.

    This is what Timebreaker used to look like until valve realized it was stolen from Aion Online.

      They do have a connection......sort of. Check out one of my previous posts here.

      As I said, OP can just contact the card's artist directly and ask about it.

          Little was found about the artist SIRAX in particular, but some of his sets were made in collaboration with this concept artist: http://antonesko.cghub.com/
          This artist makes illustrations for the mentioned card game, but the illustration/weapon in question were made by yet another guy: http://www.artlebedev.ru/everything/...rations/gilev/

          Whether the Silent Ripper was made with the third guy's agreement is unknown, but since OP is Russian he may go ahead and ask them.

            My personal opinion is that (based on the provided pictures), the workshop item is a copy of the card design but the designer altered it a little bit...

                    a) merged with old thread
                    b) DMCA requests should be going here: http://www.valvesoftware.com/email.p...nt=Dota+2+Team
                    c) We cant see your steam ticked.
                    just my 2 cents
                    If you find spelling errors, you are free to take them.

                      my two cents is this is different enough not to be a copyright issue, but valve may choose to play it safe.

                            Except that artist shouldn't own this card design. "Shouldn't" because that company isn't new on a market.

                            Here is the thing about many cases like this: artist is not donating his artwork to a Wizards of The Coast, so they include it in MTG cards. Artist is selling his artwork. For money. It may be a salary, it may be a limited deal, but money are involved in it, and after job is done, artwork becomes a part of card design, which is protected by company who ordered this artwork and made a payment for it. If this company is anything like WOTC (and they should be, 7 years on a market as someone claimed) - they own that artwork and exclusive rights to use it for selling merchandise, unless otherwise specified. Then again, it's not like this is complete clone (artwork and 3d model based off artwork), but...

                            This is a tricky case. Same as a story of Timebreaker was, and Valve decided to just set everything without hurting anyone. They may aswell take safe path again, it certainly made an item with interesting history and a lesson to better police workshop submissions.
