    I was wondering if i could use people's illustrations off of deviantart for graphics on my gpt site. I did a vector trace of it and i will only use half of it, does it really matter?

    Probably not, if you redrew it, but why don't you contact the owner of the image on deviantart and ask permission. I've been asked several times for reprint rights for my photos on flickr and always said yes. In one case I even went out and took another related photo for the person asking as it was an interesting project.
