I can see efficient performance working as a flavor.
I have as I mentioned at uds particularly favoring the the idea of a bird/
flight. Flight tends to imply agility/speed, freedom, seeing things for a
not a commonly seen perspective. These are all powerful in the imagery they
produce, at least in my mind. You say the next step is abstracting colors
and shapes. Shapes I can see how, but how do we know which colors to
restrict? How do we judge the value tritone color sheme vs. a monotone one ,
for example. Sorry if this is super obvious, but I'm still learning.

Why only by-sa? doesnt cc-by work as well? is the clause sharealike all that
important? or are you saying that by-sa the most restrictive license the
artist can put on it, and still have it be acceptable?

I cant see that adding any restrictions to what we can and cannot accept.

Currently the color pallete is pretty limited to tones of 1 color, would the
inclusion of other colors be a problem?
