drawing someone from history or using an actor

Post by dru » Sat May 16, 2009 1:01 pm

I wish to use an image of Galton in a film but avoiding copyrights

by drawing him and giving details about him and brief history
do I have to pay copyrights
or using an actor to portray him

which one has no copyrights if any
to use an image of him from the Galton libary cost 300 for a film

any help appreciated
