Can I ask a couple of things? Am I alright to paint an existing picture, such as a screen shot of a cutscene or something? Or just standing in some street somewhere whilst I paint it? And am I allowed to draw the characters in it too? o3o
Painting from a screen shot is perfectly fine, you're allowed to use references after all. It might be nice if you don't make it an exact copy of it of course. ^^ And you can add characters to it but be careful not to put the focus on the characters instead of the background, we'll rate that lower of course since the scenery is most important. The one entry that is already in (you can see it in the original journal) is pretty much pushing the limits, it could definitely have more focus on the background.
