At some point Hasbro revised their style guide to include a 3D Mr. Monopoly as part of their new branding. We had worked on many Monopoly games where Mr. M was always 2D so I pitched this look to Hasbro (based off their 3D model) to maintain some of the 2D appeal we liked. Hasbro approved and I led a small team to animate him in a 30 second attract sequence (Flash and After Effects). Later I discovered a competitor using my exact art to advertise a different Monopoly game online. I assume this art was adopted as part of Hasbro's style guide and shared with other clients who happen to be our competitors. Stealing is the sincerest for of flattery I hear.
