Thank you for the pingEdit

Thanks for the ping you left here. I only just got the ping, but when I get time I'll try and respond to what has been said. Briefly, for now, I came across these images after many of them had been done, and both queried them and then requested more of the same. My understanding that this was OK was I think in part based on how some newspapers (famously) publish drawings of people rather than using photos, and that if you use minimal elements from different photos, you would create something sufficiently different to not be a derivative of the originals. @Clindberg: in case he can remember the newspaper I am thinking of, though I suspect they probably use artists that work from a range of photos and creatively produce a new pose that isn't derivative.

@Carcharoth: Re-reading the original Wikipedia talk thread, perhaps a misunderstanding arose from Stephencdickson using the word "composite" to mean "original artwork cutout + background + pastel", and missing your point about not being able to use single images. There's a deletion discussion at Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by Stephencdickson now, and nearly all of the uploads appear to have been closely derived from single original sources, with no greater changes than occasionally altering academic robes into shirts and ties. (It may be that these are very subtle composites using eyes or mouths from other images, but we've yet to see any clear explanation from Stephencdickson of how the drawings were made, just that it is a laborious process. I did ask on the user's talk page if any were drawn from multiple sources, but received no response.) It looks like we're almost ready to remove the images which appear to be copyright infringements, anyway. --Lord Belbury (talk) 07:20, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
Yeah. I feel bad about this, as Stephencdickson contributed all those illustrations in good faith. I hope more people than just me will encourage him and not be too confrontational about this (the PD-based material is fine). I think the newspaper I was thinking of was the New York Times. There is a long tradition of artists drawing illustrations of famous people for the NYT. See here for an example. See also here for advice such as "you can [...] combine several photos for inspiration and reference for your own scene, not copy them directly." That last bit being important.

@Carcharoth: Yeah, I regret that the deletion process looks confrontational in retrospect, I didn't fully appreciate the public domain angle at the time, when Stephencdickson was mainly talking about having avoided copyright and everyone else was saying "yes, derivative work, inappropriate". And sure, Wikipedia's welcome page for donated artwork actively encourages portraits "based on multiple photos found using search engine results". --Lord Belbury (talk) 08:03, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Use of PD-old-assumedEdit

For File:Alfred i Hedwig Pringsheim.png, you changed PD-old-70 to PD-old-assumed. This changed a specific license to a weaker one unnecessarily. As the artist died 114 years ago, as was stated on the image page before your change, there is absolutely no doubt about public domain status, no need for any assumptions.

Thanks -- (talk) 22:40, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

@: Thanks, you're absolutely right and looking back I have no idea what I was thinking there. --Lord Belbury (talk) 07:51, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
