I'm looking for links and pointers to any of the following things for the Heretical DnD project
- Verified public domain artwork with fantasy themes in both black and white and color .
- Images that you own personally but are willing to donate that fit the above
- Images that you own personally and are willing to defer payment on until a crowdfunding event at a later date
In the second two cases, I'd be looking for a non-exclusive use licence. Go ahead and sell it to someone else if you can or want. If I actively commission a work (which again would be post-funding), exclusivity would be negotiable on a case-by-case basis.
Anyway, my general philosophy is that you can't eat exposure, but you can certainly die of it. So I want to pay my artists. In fact, I insist on it. But reality, for the moment, suggests I rely on public domain and donated art as placeholders, eventually to be replaced as I can afford based on crowdfunding.
And the sooner I can start working with actual images, the better.
Thanks for any help!
