Can I submit a graphic if I used a reference to draw it ?
I'm new here , and I'm also new in the graphic field. I usually , but not always, use some reference to draw my illustrations. Sometimes it is pretty clear the fact that I used a certain picture, and I don't know how to act in this situation. Of course there is no problem if is from a picture taken by me, or by someone I can agree before submitting online. But what it happens when the reference pic is from a photograph in a newspaper? What should I do ?
Usually I post credit if I submit the picture, but I think it's different in the case I use the picture to earn something.
Please let me know how should I act in the particular situation of threadless!!
and sorry for my bad english!
