Cockpit instruments graphics request

Hello,
I'm working on a program where I need some instruments. After googeling a bit I found those ones which are what I need. I contacted the author to ask if I can use them but he does not answer. My question is how much time would it take to create something similar ?

I think unless you plan to release this publicly then there is no problem with using his images and guages, if you do plan on releasing something public then if he does not answer and you do not find anywhere where has said that you cannot use the guages for your own projects, and if he doesn't answer your emails or whatever then once again it fine as long as you credit him properly.

The application will be definitely public. I'm not sure yet I will sell it or make it free.

I don't think the law would permit you to sell it without his permission, that is a completely another story...but I hear you only have to change 10%.

If you use the existing bezels from the game and then make your own internal layers for the gauges themselves it shouldn't take too long.
It all depends on your Photoshop expertise.

If I have everything I need handy, I can crank out a very nice gauge in about 1hr.

But wouldn't taking any graphics from the game violate some copy rights ? My Photoshop skills are very basic that's why I'd like to someone skilled to do it. I'd even pay for it. Btw, is it possible to "extract" the instruments form the game ?

Re: Cockpit instruments graphics request

That's why I said to use the Bezels only (the frames) and then make the rest on your own from pictures, scans etc.
Yes, you can "extract" the instruments from the game.

This is how I learned to make gauges though.
Have a look here: Gauges.
Then look here: Gauge Art.

I know it's almost a year later, but did you ever sort this out?
