How do you organize the graphics work on this? (I.e. are you using images from other sources? Making them yourself? A combination?)

Have you tried to sharpen the units graphics?. Some sharpening can do miracles
I have checked Europa barborum pages. Will you extract your graphics from the 3d images
or from the artistic one?
Perhaps there are more that are not shown in the web page

I cannot believe that the artist looses all intellectual properties as soon as you take a screenshot and modify something.

That's the reasons why I wrote:
BTW, you [color="Red"]should not[/color] have copywright troubles, because you are taking your own screenshot from a licensed program, (You bought your copy of Roma: Total War!).
Than, You modded your screenshot on your own, and finally the mod is freeware!
Indeed, what you evidenced should be true for anything else.
For example leader portraits edited over original paints should be a violation of copywright laws, but you get an usage permission from museums or private collections owning it!
Same is true for pictures illustrating events, when coming from historical reprodution.
An what about leaders!
Did you get the permissions from generals heirs to use their ancestors in a game?

I supose in many of these cases, considering how old the pictures are, have become "public domain" because of age... but i am not an expert on this issue (how long it takes for a picture to become "public domain").
Taking screenshots from a recently published game and using it in another game without authorization from the publisher/developer... is SURELLY a copyright violation.
You do not "own" the content of the screenshot.

Guess, you are not completelt right when you use a famous portrait to abstract a game figure!
Indeed you have to consider both reasons related to the "image" of an historical person, (may be of public domain) both reasons related to original picture ownships......and indeed you have consider that the original paints is also manipulated!
Very complex matter indeed!
