This is stock I have taken over the years that I decided I wanted to share with others here on Deviant Art. I just have a few rules but there simple and hopefully wont make it too hard on you to be able to make something beautiful from them.
May change at any moment. So please check back.
You have to be a member of Deviant Art to use my stock. Do not link me to your work on other sites without having posted it on Deviant Art first.
You may use my stock in a Photomanipulation* or Mixed Media digital art*, or as a reference for other kinds of digital art (Painting, Drawing, Pixel Art) or traditional art (Painting, Drawing, Sculpture).
Your manipulations of my stock photographs are not allowed to be submitted to any of the photography categories. After all you did not take the photo, I did.
The Photomanipulation section is dedicated to digital photographs that have undergone post processing and/or editing via the use of a graphical imaging software. The extent of manipulation should be prominent and noticeable in ways where it can be clearly distinguishable from an unaltered photograph.
Photomanipulations are images that have been composed of two or more photographic elements to create something new. Consequently put together in such a way that it exceeds digital darkroom techniques – in other words, a photomanipulation no longer focuses on merely enhancing any given photo, but on creating something entirely new.
Please do not redistribute or make minor changes and claim it as your own.
BE CREATIVE! Do NOT use my stock if you're only going to do minor changes like changing hue/saturation, texture overlay, or only put a border around the picture, etc.
Credit me with a link back to the stock you used or to this account.
Please leave a link for me, as I love to see the results of your work.
Use outside of DA is allowed but please still credit me and send me a link to your work.
Prints of your art work that includes my stock are allowed.
Don't use my stock for illegal, racist, pornographic or violence works.
Don't use my stock for pictures that are an outrage against good taste. It is my decision what good taste is.
I'd really prefer it if you do not use my stock images of people to create horror or sexual art. Something a bit gothic or a little creepy is fine. Anything R rated that might be humiliating for the model to be associated with them I don't allow. Contact me if you are worried that your theme might push these limits and we can discuss it.
My models are my friends and I respect them. They took the time to pose. I must be respectful to them so I ask that you do as well.
No brushes etc to be made from model stock
You have to ask permission. I would like to know what it is being used in. Let me see it, is all I ask. If I feel it is ok I will give permission. If you had an idea just explain what you want to do with it. It would be sad to work hard on an image and then to have me say take it out. Its better to just tell me what you plan to us it in and I will let you know if I'm ok with it. I am pretty easy going.
I am not out to make money off of something you created with the help of my work. This stock would of just sat on my computer never being used. I like to photograph things and they just hold memories of the the places I took them at. I just would like to know how it is being used is all. If I feel it is wrong then I would ask that you do not sale and take my stock out of the new image you made. You will just have to find another image to take its place.
Most important every one be creative and have fun.
I know what it is like to look for stock you can use to make photo manipulation prints. That there can be so many rules its not worth it. I wont ask you to put my name on your print. If you make an image to sale to a client and a little bit of my piece helped you to make it. Great!!!!
I don't want any compensation for that it is no longer mine it helped you to make a new image. All I ask is to see it and see how good you can be.
The Commercial use is only if I feel it is wrong. If when, I will say no. If I think it is cool I will congratulate you on a good job well done. Thank you for using my work.
