Thread: Princess of the sea

    Princess of the sea

    I always been interested in mermaids that I created a fictional story that I worked over the years. Recently I created video adaptation of my story with images that I found on the internet.
    The story: Two beings from different worlds whose friendship for one another must gather their courage and fight together to stop a danger from her past before time runs out and all ocean life disappears forever.

    Were all the artwork free or did you get the artist's permission to use them?

    Oh they were? This is interesting. Because I'm pretty sure that some artists whose pictures were used would probably say otherwise. (Tom Wood comes to mind, you used one picture from him at 6:30 and since he is selling prints of this artwork I would say that with 99% percent certainty this picture is not public domain...)
    I haven't checked every picture, but I'm sure many of them are not licensed for using without credit or even without asking.
    Just so you know, because maybe you don't and I don't want to think the worst of people:
    You can't just take pictures from google or other search engines and use them. Google has a search filter for pictures with free use licenses. Besides, it is just bad form of using the hard work of people and just spread them on the net with your name on it without asking them for permission first or even crediting them in the description.

    Photo at 1:38 belongs to Weeki Wachee Mermaids, some screenshots from Mako Mermaids, a few other stills I recognize but can't remember the name of the movies/tv series. I'm pretty sure none of them are free artwork.

    Never heard or seen this tv series. My idea came from different tv series like Marine Boy or Siren. As well as different movies like Heavy Metal 2000 and Aquaman.
