I converted the background graphic created by others to layer 3.
Do I need to get permission in advance before submitting the graphic in this case? Or should I write the nickname of the person who drew the graphic in Author?

(Before, after converting Hinalyte's graphic to layer 3, I wrote my name and Hinalyte in Author. I got permission through DM, but after uploading the graphic.)
The graphic is Super Mario All-Stars: Super Mario Bros. 2 - Pyramid(The graphic is 'ripped', not 'original'.)
Since Graphics doesn't have an explicit rule at the moment, I'm going to defer to the site rules.

I'm looking into clarifying a bit specifically for ripped graphics, because rips can obsolete eachother in our section unlike say, music, where ports don't.... But for now if the user is still active, then ask them 100% of the time, even for things like rips. I've accepted a couple palmask-adding updates and map16 optimizations since they're correcting a "performance failure" in my eyes, but other edits don't qualify for that and we haven't started a remod yet. Layer 3 ports often require deeper modification like converting and color crushing down to 2bpp.
As an artist, if anybody were to do converting from 4bpp to 2bpp, I think it'd be pretty neat; just give the original artist credit for the idea and you're pretty much set. If you're looking to entirely remake or "remix" something somebody else did draw, I would argue getting permission.
