Two of the poses are actually from a screen, which I didn't realize were from a movie until my teacher pointed it out. He explained that it didn't really matter, and is done all the time in the industry since the point of the painting is to showcase design. Because the design is my own, and I could easily have someone do a similar pose, it's not an issue. If I were copying the design, or selling this as an illustration (instead of a concept), then it would be unethical. I didn't see much point in changing them because I'm designing equipment, not the human body.
I didn't mean to be a copyright police was just curious if it was a coincidence. Like you said, if it's not for profit, go get as much inspiration as you want. It's rare to see someone who has done some real research on all the military hardware in his designs, keep up the good work!
I just back from Chinese new year's holidays. I'm happy you still have interesting in cooperate at the future. I think we can make it simple at the beginning. For example: some your work is already OK for me, you just modify the weapon to our products. Of cause. you must have the right to use / let us to use of your work.
