    Hey guys, I want to make a book about the Gacha characters I've made and I want to include pictures. Do I need permision from Lunime and if so how do I get it?

    I'm sorry I didn't know where to post it, and I really want an answer. I didn't want it to be overlooked because I posted it in the wrong place

    Are you going to profit out of the book? You can use your OCs, but I don't think you can use Luni's art style for yourself, unless you have permission from him. Books need to have original pictures, so you can't use screen shots in a book (and if you want an illustrator, I guess you need to pay them). Well, this depends on making profit or not, you can use the screenshots for personal use.

    If I can't use Screen shots or Luni's art style, that makes it impossible and pointless. But it makes me curious how we (myself included) can use screenshots for monetized, youtube videos. That's why I thought there must be some way to get permission.

    Just gonna put in the same post I did in the other thread, in case anyone's wondering.
    Here's a post from Charlotte that might answer your question: Click!

    In essence, you can use the characters for noncommercial purposes, but if you plan on making money off of it, you can't.

    Thank you very much for the link. I found her answer a little self contradictory and confusing but I posted a reply asking her personally to clarify the parts I don't understand. hopefully I will hear from her..
