== Art Usage ==
 
Dear Dune Fans,
 
 
Excuse me, I'm new here, but I'm wondering what is the general consensus here about using "Artist's interpretations" of characters/devices/scenes/planets on this Wiki? It seems that most people accept stills from the Dune movie and miniseries as acceptable pictures for articles, but what about "unofficial" artwork?
 
 
Thanks!!

:Hi Outwarddoodles. This is a great (and quite tricky) question! I'm torn over this, partly because of the canon/non-canon issues. A couple of artistic interpretations have already been added (including the logo), so a precedent has been set. And allowing more flexibility with artwork would help liven up the wiki and increase the number of featurable articles. But I worry it will send a mixed signal with regards to what is acceptable on this wiki. So I don't know.
