The best place to post those is in the already-pinned Inspiration & Information thread at the top of this forum. Looking forward to the links! :thumbsup:

LTMontyPython - 1 warning for spamming. Trolling and flaming also covered in other threads.

Re: Trek Art FAQ - Please Read Before Posting

I just had a look at the FAQ and the Inspiration & Information threads. There's something I've been wondering, and I don't think it's been answered in either thread. Plus I didn't want to open an extra thread just for that on subject alone.

Anyway, my question is this. I have a pencil drawing I did of a Star Trek character, Dukat. In other words, the drawing itself is my original creation (I'm not using any copyrighted screenshots or the like) but the character is not.

What happens if I post a work like this on my own website? I don't mean to sell it or use it to sell or advertise things (other than my own skills, that is), just to show it, really. Could this be a problem legally speaking? What notices (if any) would have to be included?

I'm sorry if this was covered elsewhere but I missed. I just didn't see it covered anywhere. And maybe this is even something that could go into the FAQ.

Bah. Looks like I have to wait until 100 before I can post my art. Oh well.

You'd be surprised how fast you can hit that 100 post mark.

Re: Trek Art FAQ - Please Read Before Posting

I have a question regarding photomanips. I don't draw so great, but I do have a character who looks just like Odo with a different hair and eye and clothing color, so I did some manipulating to change the hair/eye/clothing colors. Is that not allowed to be posted as fanart even if I credit it by saying "this is a photomanipulation"?

I won't just go do it anyway, I might use it for an avatar when I can start posting one(if allowed), but I'm wondering about posting it as fanart.

There's not really a problem showing photo manipulations like that. Many people post such things here, and there's even a dedicated thread in General Trek for them. The only real problem would be if you tried to sell it.

Re: Trek Art FAQ - Please Read Before Posting

Okay, thanks I would never try to claim a photomanip is my own work, I always am specific that "THIS IS A PHOTOMANIPULATION" and I don't sell anything I do anyway. I don't wanna be sued :P

Thanks again!
