There are artists who takes commission on internet: they create a work based on my request, and I pay them for the work.
If I make a request which involves other intellectual property, would it be considered copyright infringement? (i.e., making derivative work, making profit, or not taking permission from copyright holder) What can I (or the artist) do to prevent such legal issues?
examples of commission:
- an art of Iron Man (character created by Marvel Comics)
- an art of a character (such as a Dwarf Cleric) I created for Dungeons and Dragons sessions (TRPG published by Wizards of the Coast)
