I think this is a long discussion, but in general I think it is best to pay artists for using their work. I understand you are not making any profit yourself, but for me since I make my living doing art, I can't undervalue my work by doing it for free. I personally feel that if it is a project that you feel strongly about, it would be worth it to perhaps try to raise some funding or kickstarter it in order to get quality art work to further your vision.

I hope that makes sense.. if you have further questions though feel free to send me a private message.

My friend,

you are one of the constructive critics that I thank, because I change my projected modulating it on your needs. You can check it anew in my journal, the offer has changed in better for both. :)

I grant you a percentage on profits, in a second phase of the game that will make profits from a commercial use of it.
But unfortunately, the first part of the game still needs this free spread and also free use of images is requested.
But I bind myself and you in the contract to grant you an annual percentage as the game shifts for commercial use; and it multiplies for the images your used images.

I hope this could be more fair to you, also if I fear commercializing it... I feel prepared for it, and have good ideas for content expenses, although that what I've studied for years and worked too.
I don't want to be exploited anymore too my friend, that's why I'm doing this project, and I find very fair your argument.

Any other critic to my new offer, is very appreciated, I see you are not only a good artists, but also an intelligent person, with a social attitude that we share. I like it. :)

If there are any images you would like to make disposal, please let me know.

Have a nice day.

One of my favorites - I love the worn look of the blade and its handle, but how the samurai's hands hold it almost delicately. It has a very touching quality to it.

This is a beautiful and perfectly executed work.
A masterpiece that, in despite of showing a sword that took many lifes, radiates so much peace and harmony.
At risk of being naive and even impertinent, is there any chance to get a wallpaper from this?
Thanks for sharing you art with all of us.
