The questions thread

So y’all can ask questions about writing episode stories and other people are going to answer them.

My questions (You can answer them if you want)
  1. Can we use backgrounds/overlays from google?
  2. Is there a way we can layer outfits like boots under pants?
  3. Can we show a dead body in episode?
  4. I have a Character and it’s younger version. How to make the younger character’s name and it’s older version to have the same name (I gave readers option to edit that characters name)?
  5. How to add custom props?

  1. Can we use backgrounds/overlays from google?

As long as you are using PUBLIC DOMAIN websites, then yes, you can. Like

Pixabay.com (have good overlays, and some backgrounds)

  1. Is there a way we can layer outfits like boots under pants?

Hm, depends on the clothing, some can and some can’t.

  1. Can we show a dead body in episode?

Following their guidelines, as long, you CAN’T show dead bodies.

  1. I have a Character and it’s younger version. How to make the younger character’s name and it’s older version to have the same name (I gave readers option to edit that characters name)?

Hm, I am not so sure since I haven’t really given the reader an option. So someone may answer that one for you.

  1. How to add custom props?

You mean like props made? Are overlays? Or the props that are in the portal?

the props. Like a character holding a teacup or something and its layered perfectly. But if i create a overlay and layer them, it goes completely under it.

@add PROP NAME to CHARACTER

now for the overlay and layering, yeah it might go behind it, so u may have to use props from the portal. U can maybe also used custom poses. :thinking: But I usually wait for Episode to upload the props I’m looking for.

1 no, evrything you use have to be copyright free, google dosent own any pictures, they belong to many diffrent websites, most are copyrighted

  1. no unfortently not

  2. kinda but its a grey aria, so be carefull what you do. read the guidelines carefully, they say you cant but I seen it done multiple times.

  3. put the same name in display name

your an artist right?

imagine this, i find your art on google, am I allowed to use it, just put it into my story, no credit to you?

all backgrounds on google belong to someone. if its copyright you cant use it, and fun fact you dont have to do anything to copyright it, if you just upload an original picture its copyright to you.
the rule for pictures is not it has to say its copyright, its it has to say if its fair use. aka not copyrighted
