Frequently Asked Questions
I want to use the art in a game. Does the ShareAlike clause require I release the entire game under the same license?
"This Section 4(a) applies to the Work as incorporated in a Collection, but this does not require the Collection apart from the Work itself to be made subject to the terms of this License."
If you want to include an image from our project in your work, feel free. You'll need to label or credit the image somewhere, for example: "ART by ARTIST (URL) is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License <http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/>." If you make changes to the original image, those changes will be available to others under the same license. The rest of it is yours. Our hope is that this balances the needs of the publishers with those of the artists and everyone can come out a winner.Last updated:
Many of our artists are professionals. I want to harness their knowledge and creative energy as much as possible. Also, I don't want to force them to create something that doesn't necessarily appeal to them. However, I also know that you all want to provide input into the design process. While I hope to offer some rewards that give people even more control over what gets produced, for the general artwork pool I want to give the backers a chance to add to a wishlist that will be provided to the artists. Hopefully this will not only provide a creativity springboard for the artists, but I'm hoping to publish the wish list for future projects and artists looking for something to create.Last updated:
We're big fans of all genres, but fantasy is one of the biggest, most popular genres of geek culture so we're starting there. If this project succeeds, we'll expand to more genres like space opera, steampunk, cyberpunk, and so on.Last updated:
We'll give more details in the future, but here are the basics. All submissions must be high-resolution in either black and white or color. All submissions must depict women, people of color, or differently abled people in fantasy heroic roles. No cheesecake, ethnic sidekicks, or caricatures, please. Just straight-up fantasy heroes. We're open to all styles of art, but we want professional-grade quality stuff. Please contact us athttp://mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to partner with us and what we can offer as compensation. In all cases, accepted submissions will be released to the Creative Commons under an Attribution Share-Alike license.Last updated:
You know, swords, dragons, dungeons, wizards, that kind of thing. Use your imagination, but definitely keep within that spectrum.Last updated:
We are paying the artists between $50 - $300 for most of the art. Special commissions will probably cost a bit more. Since we don't know the exact art we're commissioning yet (both the backers and the artists will have some input in that), we can't give an exact number on how many pieces we'll have. If we decided to do a lot of small, black & white line art, we'll end up with a lot more art. If we go for more set pieces that are larger and with multiple characters, we'll end up with fewer overall pieces. We're also giving artists the chance to license to us existing art they own at a slightly reduced rate. Thus, we felt comfortable guaranteeing at least 20 for the base goal and 10 for each additional level.Last updated:
