I have a question regarding copyright/employment, and I was hoping you guys could help me out. I've done a little searching but I can't really find an answer, so excuse me if there's a link somewhere with the exact answer to my question.
About a year ago I did an internship at a game company, and I've produced a few works that I regularly use as portfolio pieces to show to people. I've signed a contract that allows me to showcase these pieces, but it does not state anything about not altering the images in anyway (except that the images have to be marked with copyright text)
Yesterday I got the opportunity to get my portfolio reviewed by Jason Manley and John English, and the portfolio I submitted included these pieces. They had some very valid critique, and one specific point which had been bothering me for some time about one of the pieces.
My question is, is it allowed in general to touch up the images you made as an employee to a certain extent, even if they are owned by the company you worked for? The changes I'd make wouldn't be super spectacular and would mostly involve adding some more dust or clouds, or slightly changing the angle of some objects.
Of course, if there is no clear answer I will email the company and ask them, but I figured the CA community is usually faster with their answers =) Thanks in advance!
