No Artwork Theft or Plagiarism
if you're going to post artwork that is not your own (this includes other's artwork that you have copied or modified) make sure you are within the guidelines of Fair Use or make it clear that you have permission from the artist. If you post a piece that is based on someone else's work, or contains work created by anyone other than you, you must properly credit the artist. Properly crediting the artist means posting either:
the artist's full name, e.g. "Linda Bergkvist"
the artist's screen name and the website where you got the art from, e.g., "squidinc at CGSociety.com"
In cases where the original artist is unknown because the source material is a cartoon (or similar medium), providing the show, character, and a link to the source image used is adequate.
You may give this credit in your post text or in the copyright line of the piece. The rule of thumb here is that if the artist can be found in an internet search with reasonable ease based on the information you provided, you're fine.
If you're just googling, post a link. If it's from an intellectual property, name it.
"Original art of Twin Snakes by Yoji Shinkawa, Konami Illustrator. " – this is excellent.
Xander, are you going to be releasing a template soon?
I guess I could throw something together. But the nameplates are always the tricky bit. I still don't have all the frames I need. And I haven't looked at them for a few weeks. Some colours I have frames for, some I have single line frames, but not full frames, and some I haven't made either... so I dunno, we'll see if I get inspired to finish them.
Xander, could you make the "proper" Voja token? i know about the one in the Voja thread but i like your template better.
also the Saproling for the RAV token is wrong. it doesn't match. the Golgari background doesn't match the Selesnya saproling. take a look at the Golgari style guide. there's two example Saprolings to use. and the Selesnya one should go into some otehr background...
then make another separate token for Golgari saprolings?
could you put the template here? i'd do them myself if i had the template...
someone in the Artwork forums asked for a Weird token. so i made one. not as good as Xander's in my opinion but hehworth a shot i guess... managed to isolate some parts and make a template for myself. bit crooked but will work that out someday. :tongue3:
