    Merry Christmas.

    I would like to draw Jesus Christ & Mary from this photograph using graphite-charcoal and upload it in my flickr page and own website. Also I intend to sell the same for charity. Can I do all these?

    I think you would need a model release UNLESS the people in your drawing do not uniquely resemble the people in the photo. I am not a lawyer, but that's probably not a problem with graphite-charcoal and some artistic changes to their appearance.

    As far as the photo, your use is fine with me, you have to give attribution which you can do by linking to the photo here OR a notation like: From a photo by

    Thanks for asking, and I would love to see the work! Please add a link here when it's done.

    Thank you for the reply.
