How much 'artistic liberty' do you think an artist/maker can take with their work?
Where does this question come from? Well my lovely sister in-law is leaving her work and she asked me to crochet her some Maneki-neko key chains for her favourite patients so she can give them as gifts.
When I run my RP chronicle I take a lot of artistic liberties with history in order to give my players a good story, but somehow twisting history with words (perhaps because that is all it is) does not feel as wrong to me as when I was making the Maneki-neko without hands. For EpicxCloth I have consciously decided that artistic liberties can be taken in the name of cuteness (yay!) For RP I have decided that artistic liberties can be taken in the name of a good story, but it has left me wondering where the border of this is? Or is there even a border in the name of art?
I have no idea, what do you think?
