In the process of making characters, most users like to find pictures from somewhere around the internet to represent their character. Because doing so is very popular, it is necessary to have a few ground rules for the use of pictures. One important basic rule to always keep in mind, is copyright, there is lots of free use and fair use images out there, but if you find images that have blatant copyright and water marks over the image, you shouldn't use the image. Some sites, like DeviantArt, may not have markings on the image itself, but on the source page that clearly state the author's wishes for use of the image, please respect this.
General Image PoliciesEdit
- The image you use should not have logos or copyrights clearly stamped on the photos.
- The images should be tasteful, no nudity, or showing of private parts. A bit of cleavage is one thing, but full on breast with nothing left to the imagination, not OK.
- Also, we shouldn't have to state this, but please be respectful of copyright laws. If you find a deviantart's image you really love, but the artist has clear and concise rules on that page asking it to not be used by anyone either without their permission or off the Deviantart site, use common courtesy and do not use their image.
- In general we have no strict policy on how many images (files) you may use for a character. However, I ask that you remain within reason, the more files you have on a page to load, whether it be for a character model or images for a poem you wrote, the harder and longer it will take to load.
We have no rules against people using the same models or images as long as they follow copyright laws as much as possible.
