I do like to support fellow artists and i'm happy to know i'm able to inspire artistic creations of any medium.
Therefore you are free to use any of my works for drawings/paintings/illustrations/etc. as a reference.
Permission is not required and i'll be happy to see any of the end results!
HOWEVER, they cannot be used for print/merchandise/commercial, also profit purposes,
in which licensing and written permission would be required; as well as for competitions,
because recreation of someone else work would give a credit only to technic and it would be unfair.
Also in any case you must give a clear CREDIT to me and link back to my website/userpage.
(see the links at the end of the article)
BUT my works are NOT STOCK images. You may not use my works in manipulations or designs, including but not limited to:
book covers, book illustrations, websites, layouts, tubes, wallpapers, banners, blogs, CDs, posters, etc.
I concider it a commercial use. For licensing enquiries please email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Prints bought from the deviantART print store or directly from myself are solely for collection purposes.
Buying prints does not grant you rights or licenses to use and reproduce any of my works.
P.S. Anyway, if you have some special case, just write me a note and we'll see what could be done
