I’ve mentioned before that I’m working on a 3D game. I’ve got a question about one of the figures that I made for it the other day.
Part of the play takes place in a bank, and so I’ve set about creating a set of 3D objects that you might encounter in a bank - including some snazzy framed pictures to “hang” on the walls.
I went down to the living room, and photographed some things we have on the walls and used them to make the objects for the game. Among the things I used was a reproduction of a painting by Monet.
Granted it is only 256 pixels wide, am I heading for copyright problems if I use this thing? For now, no one can see it except me - but I hope to one day reach an audience of millions (yes, swollen head syndrome is rampant around here.)
If there is a copyright problem, who would I talk to to see about clearing it up? The repro was bought at a museum in Paris - if I remember correctly the museum is in the house he lived in.
