What you CAN do with my art:
You CAN download and view for your own personal enjoyment on your own computer
You CAN share it on your blog/website/forum for display and enjoyment purposes only when proper credit is given (ie. my name, Angela R. Sasser and/or website, angelicshades.com, listed near the image or in a place where it will be easily associated with the relevant image)
You CAN do fanart of my characters as long as you are original in your composition and are not merely tracing pictures of mine (or of other people!). I would like to be notified of any fan works based on my characters so I may enjoy them (NOTE. You CANNOT sell prints of fan art of my characters without my permission!)
You CAN print my art out for personal enjoyment on plain printer paper. If you want to support me as an artist so I can keep providing you with pretties to enjoy, I encourage you to buy higher quality collectible prints here on DA or signed and limited edition prints at my website's store.
You CAN download free wallpapers to be used on your desktop here on DA and at my website.
What you CANNOT do with my art
You CANNOT trace, color, or alter any of the images in my gallery without PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT. Any derivative works made without permission will be reported. Works which copy my images exactly or are merely my images with the colors tweaked are NOT endorsed without my permission. My art IS NOT Stock. I do, however, have a stock account which you may use for your projects if you agree to my stock terms of usage.
Exception! You may color any of my images which have been submitted to or which I have given you personal permission to color on this journal entry.
ACQUIRING MY WRITTEN CONSENT
You may leave your requests to color line art or alter my work on this journal where I will grant or deny permission publicly in a comment which can be linked to as proof of my consent.
IF you are not granted consent in a comment on this journal entry than you DO NOT have my consent!
You CANNOT sell or resell prints of my work, whether they be prints you made yourself or ones you ordered off of DA. You must have my expressed written permission to do so.
You CANNOT use my work for avatars, tubes, signatures, tattoo designs, stationary, etc. You may not alter them with sparklies, blinking colors, or anything of this nature. Any images which I have put up for adoption at EMG's Portrait Adoption are the exception to this rule and are available for exclusive use only.
You CANNOT post my work on your website/blog/forum if you do not credit me directly! This also counts for Photobucket, Flickr, and any other service.
In the end, if you are unclear about any of these guidelines, please note or email me with your questions! I normally do not mind people coloring my work or sharing it as long as they ask first. I promise I don't bite...much

I'm Back! (Where Did I Go?)
For those who didn't know I was gone, a couple of weeks ago, my account was hacked with disgusting images and anti-George Floyd memes. First off, I'm so very sorry that any of you all had to see these awful things in your feed! I didn't even see them before my account was perma-banned. Generous fans contacted me afterwards to let me know of the incident so I could contact support about the issue. Thankfully, DeviantART has helped me to restore my account, though I have sadly lost all of my Watchers and my entire Watchlist, as well as all of my stash. It's a bit of a blow and a hard lesson to secure my accounts better (which I am now doing with hash generated passwords from Bit Warden). Losing my account made me remember how much in that 20+ years since I first joined as a wee high school student all the good memories and life-long friends I made here, as well as how dA helped me grow as a young artist. I'm glad to be back so I can keep participating when I can, despite the

April 2020 Wrap-Up - Going on Art Vacation!
Originally posted on my blog Hello from Day 52 of self-isolation! This week has been the first week since self-isolation started that I haven't been crazy busy juggling pin samples, Kickstarter promotion tasks, etc. The final campaign for the Birthstone Goddesses Pin series on Kickstarter wrapped up this month and I'm celebrating finishing up this next phase of this project! All that's left now is to produce the pins and ship them out. Next, I'm excited to start work on the next phase of the Birthstone Goddesses with some new art I hope to create in a more fantasy vein for the art book, plus the long-awaited wall calendar. Wonderful thi
Hello LadyDove7, I was looking at your lineart and I windered if I could have your permission to color a few (or more) of them for my own personal enjoyment. I can't really tell you the exact ones, because I'm not sure just yet. You see, I am 62 and I color for my health and for the FUN of it! When I say I color for my health, i mean: I have severe rhuematoid arthritis and severe osteoporosis, and a bone disease that is causing my bones to kind of dissolve-to make a long story short, I take alot of pain medications(too much I think but I have to if I want to stay functioning) and I am tired of having to take more and larger doses so I had to find a way to help me deal physically and psychologically with all the pain- I came up with COLORING! The best pain medication ever!! If I am hurting really badly I start to color and soon I am relaxing and having fun and not having to take extra pain medication. I color alot with my Grandkids-now that is fun!! All the memories I have of growing up and getting a new color book and a new box of colors! So for me coloring is so very important physically and mentally-it helps me deal with pain and depression and most of all it helps me get closer and stay closer to my 10 BEAUTIFUL GRANDKIDS!! So I would really appreciate getting your permission to color some of your lineart pictures. PLEASE? Thank you for reading my "novel"-sorry that this has been so lng. God Bless.
