Greetings!
I'm looking to grab attention at a convention or store by mimicing the classic WWI "We want YOU!" recruitment posters.

Anyone have the artistic chops to draw Valsin doing his best Uncle Sam?

I like the idea and tried to do something with existing art, alas poor me... it didnt work out.

There are a bunch of PFS players (and artists for Paizo products) who are artists on deviantArt - maybe a good place to look around as well as here?

This is something that needs to happen!

June, I looked into doing something similar, but asked for clarification: modifying the existing art violates the Community Use Policy. =\
As far as devianart; is there a forum there? All of my forays to that site consist of artist galleries. Unless you're suggesting I message specific artists if they would do it?

I think it should Drandle Dreng as Uncle Sam instead.

Here is a link to the deviantArt Forum. If you have not done so already, you may want to try contacting the one who played a fish loving halfling for you. I imagine that one may be up for the task.(at least would not hurt to ask)

Excellent, thanks for the link R2D2TS.
I thought about asking Shannon, and as talented as she is and as much as I love her art, I don't know that she could mimic that propaganda style. I'll ask her though.

Drandle Dreng could be Uncle Sam, but we wouldn't be able show the poster unless its in the middle of the night! Really though, it could be any VC.

Ambrus Valsin has a more passing resemblance to Kitchener of the New Army of WW1.

Modifying the existing art is not allowed. Commissioning something new is a different matter.

So I can comission fan art of Paizo's characters for use in promotional posters.

Does that art then fall into the Community Use guidelines because it uses Paizo's IP? Meaning I couldn't charge to grant access to it, correct? (I wouldn't want to, regardless.)

What about soliciting donations to cover the cost of commissions?
