My life lesson for the universe at large:

It is truly astonishing what can be accomplished simply by asking politely.

I just got permission to use an absolutely perfect image in our game. All I did was ask and promise to provide proper attribution on the credits page. Sweet!

UPDATE: Holy crap! And sometimes, the answer isn't just "yes", it's "yes, here's the high-res original, along with 10 more"!

Yeah. I was worried that he'd want a licensing fee or something (which we have no funding for), but I guess recognition is enough. Happily. =)

Re: Functional tease

I'm planning on doing a big release announcement next week or so; I'll try to remember to do it here, too.

It was fun when a theatre used my photo. But I had to ask melted_snowball and da_lj for permission.

In the line of asking politely...

Did you get the email I sent you? Could you please let me know if that sort of timing is good?

Yes and yes, it'll work fine!

Sorry, I have been a huge lame-butt and had been failing to remember to double-check with my others for, like, a week straight, until today. 'Pologies!
