    ( new user) Can anyone advise me on the use of images off the Internet and not get in trouble with copyright?
    I have hand drawn my own versions of cartoons to create a new image. Is this an infringement or can I now claim as my own?
    Also, I have seen cartoon images from the internet being used with resources. How can you do this? Thanking you in advance

    Have look at the FAQs here @NannyMaureen . Come back and ask if there's anything you still need to know.

    Some people pay for clipart (you need to check the license allows commercial use).

    If you're happy drawing your own images I'd say that's your best option as all the other options have complications of one kind or another.

    However if it's a clear copy of someone else's work then it's not overly ethical and could be open to a challenge if they see it!!! E.g. it would be very unwise to copy Disney characters, or well-known cartoon characters/toys etc.

    Of course, though breaking copyright law might be a greater concern than the ethics. When I say your your own - that's what I meant - as in draw your own, not somebody else's.
