Character models & design


Currently working my way through my cast of characters for a project and wanted to know if there are currently any legal ramifications when using images and photos of celebrities or people known to me as references for my artists.

Do I need to do a disclaimer?
Am I infringing on these people’s rights and likeness??
Would the artist and myself be liable??
Any thoughts would be appreciated


i think as long as you don’t put in a actual line in the end comic, with one character saying, “you know, you look a lot like Leonardo DiCaprio!” i think youll will be ok.

I mean, the Chief blatantly put Sam L Jackson in as Nick Fury in the Ultimates, back in the day…to which when they actually met, Sam Thanked Mark for the nine picture deal! :joy:
if my memory serves!
