Sorry, but I am a little reluctant concerning drawing "official" comic characters. Maybe I can help with other things (modern walls etc.)?

(I have not forgotten about the cave walls I offered to do, by the way...)

Same here.


In the States, I believe the law is (or was) that anything within 20% (?) of a copyrighted character likeness, is infringement. I do recall a couple guys in Florida were doing airbrushed Aliens T-shirts, and Fox tore them apart in court.  Anything that looks like Ironman could certainly garner a cease & desists order.

**Yes, I've seen the FRUA modules.

I'll be able to create some icons and smallPics once I'm done with the Golden Age Heroes Icon Set.

While this thread is specifically for icons that I need, all art is welcome.

I currently have a frame set and cursor. I have one wall set (with matching backgrounds).

I have smallpics for all of the listed characters. I think I am only go to put one of each in the pack that I upload, but then link to my site - and other sites/threads that have images. Or do you guys think that we should put more than one of each?

I have no sprites and no big pics.

As far as copyright issues...
I do not have the copyright on any of these characters, nor did I specifically ask permission to sue the likenesses from the copyright holders.
This is fan art. We will not make money on it, nor is it intended to compete with any games/comics/products that the copyright holders currently have in production or plan to put in production.
If they ask me to take down the icons/smallpics, I will. :)

This is fairly standard now. :) I have had my Hero Craft images online for years and years. The artists on deviantArt and various 3D websites put up new images all the time, in fact several people are making a (meager) living selling 3D superhero products that they do not hold the copyright to, calling it "cosplay" and so far have not received a cease and desist order. But our community is not making any money on this, and I think we are fine.

However, I think that every artist/creator should do what they feel comfortable doing, and do not intend the above as any kind of peer pressure, etc. just as an explanation of what I am doing.

I already have icons for a few of the heroes on your list. They are not consistent in style and most lack shadows. Feel free to add shadows, tweak them, or to use them as placeholders until better icons become available.

When you say, "Captain Marvel," I think, "Carol Danvers." If you meant, "Mar-Vell," then we will need another icon.

I totally meant Carol Danvers. :D I had to pick one of her identities, so picked most recent, but I should have put her name in parens.For Giant-man, I mean Hank Pym, and for Green Goblin, I mean Norman Osborne.
