BY USING MY STOCK YOU AGREE TO...
YOU MUST BE AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF DA TO USE MY STOCK
IE if you have no deviations in your gallery and have made no comments etc you are a blank account generally only made to get access to DA stock to use off site - we're not stupid.
YOU ARE REQUIRED TO CREDIT MY GALLERY IN THE DETAILS OF YOUR DEVIATION
(This is a requirement of DA as well)
YOU ARE REQUIRED TO NOTIFY ME WITH A LINK TO YOUR DEVIATION WHICH MUST BE ON DEVIANTART AS SOON AS YOU POST! BY COMMENT ON THE ORIGINAL STOCK OR IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO FIND THE ORIGINAL STOCK BY NOTE.
I SHOULD HAVE YOUR FINISHED WORK IN ORIGINAL SIZE ! YOU CAN SEND IT TO AMSTBL@GMAIL.COM
OUTSIDE REPOSTING OF YOUR ARTWORK - to your own blog/personal website/other art forum/gallery is acceptable as long as full credit is given (where reasonably possible) and a link to the location sent to me in a note.
TRADITIONAL ART REFS - YES! I DO give permission to all traditional media AND digital media artists to use my stock for pose/costume/fabric references etc in their traditional/digital artwork HOWEVER I still insist that I am credited WHERE POSSIBLE and especially online for the resources used and informed in the way described above.
THINGS I DON'T ALLOW
** THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE, PERMISSION WILL NOT BE GRANTED FOR ANY OF THE ABOVE.
If you are unsure please contact me by note on DA or by email - AMSTBL at gmail dot com to check. Please don't just assume it will be ok!
PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT CONSIDER CHANGING THE HUE/SATURATION OR MINOR ALTERATIONS SUCH AS DODGING/BURNING/BLENDING & TEXTURE OVERLAY OR TOUCH UPS/POST PRODUCTION WORK OR HDR SIMULATIONS ETC AS PHOTO MANIPULATION. IF I DO NOT CONSIDER IT ENOUGH OF A CHANGE FROM THE ORIGINAL I WILL ASK YOU TO REMOVE IT.
PLEASE DO NOT RESUBMIT MY STOCK TO THE PHOTOGRAPHY GALLERY WITH MINOR EDITS AS DETAILED ABOVE.
Do NOT use my stock if you intend to release the resulting work as more stock (eg premade backgrounds**) this includes my model AND location stock.
You agree to not use my stock in any artwork that contains illegal/copyright infringing images, for example images taken from google or any other search site is not valid stock, also celebrity photography from ANY SITE is NOT valid stock.
Please do not use my stock photography for commercial/paid work without contacting me to discuss the project BEFORE you use any of my stock! All commercial work requires either a commercial release which must be organized BEFOREHAND. Please contact me directly either by email - AMSTBL at gmail .com or by note on DA.
EDIT 2012: THIS INCLUDES "HYPOTHETICAL" BOOK COVERS AND OTHER MEDIA WHICH MUST BE CLEARED WITH ME FIRST!!
I HEREBY GRANT ALL DEVIANT ARTISTS PERMISSION TO USE MY STOCK IN ANY AND ALL DEVIANTART PRINTS WITHOUT RESTRICTION.
For all other printing/commercial use please contact me first!
You no longer need to request permission from me to use my stock in a DA prints, you must however remember to ask for prints permission for other sites/personal printing, and you must also credit as per the regular rules.
if you wish to use my stock in prints on other webstores please contact me for permission first!
My stock does not belong in the public domain, the license I extend for use is for DA members only.
Just because not all my stock has a visible copyright watermark does NOT mean that they are not SUBJECT TO COPYRIGHT PERMISSIONS! I GIVE DEVIANTART USERS ONLY permission to download, use, MANIPULATE my stock art but NOT my artwork. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU CAN COPY AND PASTE UNMANIPULATED STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY INTO YOUR OWN WEBSITE! THIS IS COPYRIGHT VIOLATION!
It remains MY option to remove or change or amend any or all of my stock and rules at ANY time.
