Creating licensed art is an extremely demanding field. The licensed artist must be able to produce artwork that not only looks like the original property but can not be distinguished as unique or different in any other way. It must be flawless in it’s execution. The slightest deviation from the intent of the original creator can easily be spotted and reflects poorly on the brand.
