I'm on my college paper and I've been tasked with making a huge portrait of Trump for the cover. Now I know Shepard Fairey got in a lot of shit for painting over an AP photo of Obama. I really don't have time to sketch up something from scratch so what's the protocol for using someone else's photo as a painting base?

no one gives a fuck, trace away. /ic/ has daily threads complaining about professionals tracing or doing paintovers, and to this day the accused still do it, and still get paid to do it.

no one gives a fuck anymore, if it looks nice who cares.

Really did he get in a lot of shit? Its clearly fair use but was that before it was more established in court? I didn't care about those kinds of things at the time.

No, he didn't. He's still able to sell the artwork, still able to keep churning out paintovers, still making mad money.

While retards here grind fundies like it matters.

I don't know if there was shit from the at community but there was a lawsuit.

I never use photos when I do portraits. Usually I'll just find a video and pause it on good shots and draw those. That way I'm fairly certain I'm using a shot that hasn't been drawn before.
