I agree with Judith's post, however did not SoulTear say the model is listed as a "Free 3d models" that maybe CC compatible?

The only model I can find in TDM that's similar to "the woman with two pitchers" is "Aphrodite" in the statues folder. I used that in In the North, as it was a standard TDM model at the time.

 

Aphrodite was created by Arcturus:

We do our best to vet new assets for inclusion but it's always possible that something found or offered comes from a commercial source.

For example, we grabbed assets from the Serengrove Doom 3 map and we were given permission by the author but who knows

if the author created everything from scratch? Still, I guess the license terms stem from the last party that claimed to be authorized to

distribute the item. In that case, if we included the asset and someone starting yelling about it's use, we would simply say that "https://www.archive3d.net"

gave us permission. So the next step would be to see if archive3d.net has ever gotten into trouble or if anyone using their assets have encountered

any problems.

That model on the left looks exactly like Arcturus', but has more poly and less details, now that's brilliant...

 

If you recreate something from scratch, just by eyeballing the original model or screenshot, that's fine. That's your work. And you can get a bit more creative, so it's not 100% obvious which model you used as the inspiration (you probably won't be able to make the same textures and materials anyway).

 

If you're doing it just for testing, then sure, you can even use those apps for grabbing whole scenes with textures and models, for experimental purposes, I guess. Otherwise, grabbing dubious stuff from shady parts of the Internet isn't helping.

That's a screenshot from editor without normalmaps, I presume.

 

Since photo scanning has become popular some high quality scans of sculptures have been released for free. I already posted a link to this site. Info says "All scans can be downloaded and used without copyright restrictions." Recently some guy published his scans from Louvre. He says: "Free use for references, matte paintings or whatever". One would have to ask if it's ok to use it in Darkmod. Of course those are all high poly so low poly versions would have to be made.
