Backgrounds

#1 Post by Wright1000 » Mon May 02, 2011 10:14 am

I just need the background cartoon pictures of an office room, a street and the view from a bridge.

I will be very thankful if anyone can find these three backgrounds for me.

They are free for use on games and I don't really think that there are license restrictions.
And as proof, Here is something quoted from the website itself, sorry for the crappy english this was only translated using google translate.
This site aims to help game production, mainly game ADV
Provides the necessary background material for free.       
There is no restriction on the use most often Terms
Please help us to read the works of creation.

If you want ones you can use, you should probably be searching the 'resources and stock images' category on DA, not the general art. Usage rules will still vary, but they're a LOT more likely to let you play with their toys.

I do not understand.
Can you give me the address of the website you are talking about?
What is DA?
Does it mean Defense Arts???

DA's a website where artists can share their works and all that. :) As you can see from the link, it stands for Deviant Art.

Right, sorry. I was saying that Taleweaver linked to a lot of images on deviantart, but random images on deviantart are not free for everyone to use however they like! Deviantart does have a resource art category which is intended for people to take and use, but each artist has their own rules. Some of the stock art is only okay to use to make more pictures on deviantart. Some of it is absolutely fine to use in games free as long as you give credit.

So here's a search for 'bridge' in the resources category. Each picture will usually explain the terms of use or tell you to check the artist's stock account/gallery for terms of use.

Er, yes, what papillion said. I didn't post the links for anyone to steal them, but as I said: as ideas. What I meant to say was that there's tons of pictures of literally everything in many places, and all it takes to legally use one for a non-commercial project is a thumbs-up from its creator. In other words, look for stuff in sites like DeviantArt, then ask the artist nicely whether you can use their stuff in a non-com VN.

There's also [url=http://bassnovel.com/select_materials.p ... &p=46&key=]bassnovel[/size], which is a good site for both backgrounds and sprites...
I think I've seen quite a lot of bridges, but I can't remember which page it's on unfortunately xD
