This is more of a 2 part question.
I was recently looking at commercial 3D models and I came across a 3D car model from the Ghostbusters film. This got me thinking as to how someone can sell a 3d model of an existing property even if its something they made themselves from reference? Is this something they'd need permission for?
My Other question is if you're creating art based off an existing property that doesn't have any concept are you can refer to, but just images from that TV show, Game or Film, is that ill-advised?
For example, I'm planning on recreating Matthew Murdocks Apartment from Netflix's Marvel's Daredevil in UE4. I haven't been able to find any concept art on that environment, mostly just different characters' costume concepts.
Please let me know your thoughts.
Thanks in advance!
