Please take a second to stop and read these before you download or use

Prior to using my stock, please be familiar with DeviantART's FAQ rules, mainly
FAQ #157: Can I use things created by other people in my submissions?
"The use of stock imagery at deviantART is permissible if and only if you can provide a link to the source of the stock image along with some kind of proof that you have satisfied the terms of the stock image license."  

:pointr:1. Link to me in the description.
(It can be a link to the original picture, a link to my icon, or both.)

:pointr:2. Link your deviation back here.
(Preferably on the page of the picture you used, but anything will do.)

Need help linking? FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?

:bulletred: In accordance with DeviantART's terms of use: Please remember: These photos are submitted for your use, not for you to take and resubmit as your own photographs. All deviations using my stock that are submitted to the photomanipulation gallery should be altered in such way that it is clear you have used techniques other than a filter and/or alteration in the color of the original :bulletred:

:pointr:3. Restrictions: :censored:  I don't want my photos containing human models, to be used in ANY HATE RELATED ARTWORK

 Please do not use my stock for artwork that depicts hatred for any particular race, religion, celebrity, or use my stock to show hatred for or to insult my friends or I.

This includes:

PORNOGRAPHY: Model stocks are not to be used in pornographic imagery - Please respect the models, they are PEOPLE with feelings and families

RELIGIOUS AGENDAS:  No religious campaigns or agendas or anti-whatever you are against artwork. Angels are fine, mythology is fine, the devil is fine.... I just don't want my work connected with any judgmental hate or bias. 

POLITICAL AGENDAS: This means no voting, abortion demonstrations, women's lib, 9/11 memorials, anti-war, pro-war, "the USA (or any other country) is great" type of things. NO HATE messages of any sort!

DevSecret: please, I do not want my model stocks associated with your secrets. Most submissions aren't even artistic, I do not like the idea of my art being copied with text written over it.

Redistributed You may not, under any circumstances distribute or publish my stocks under any other user-name or on any other website. 

:pointr:Where: Just remember, these stock photos are free to use PRIMARILY ON deviantART.  They can be used in photo manipulations, paintings, references, ect.

MODEL STOCKS: Stocks of models (prior to 2011) other than Larissa or I do not have a third party model release. Which means they need to stay on DeviantART. Thank you

Use of Landscape/Animal/Nature/Object/Texture stock: feel free to post your manipulations/traditional art on other websites (like Flickr, Ponybox, personal websites) with credit and links

:bulletblue:For Blog/Website Layout: Please give credit

:bulletblue:On DeviantART CSS: Please provide a credited linkback to my stock site

:bulletblue:Prints: If you use my stock and would like to sell it in prints (on DA or off DA), send me a note with a link to the print, so that I can wishlist it. Thank you

:bulletblue: Commercial use - Please e-mail me

There was a underwater stock i would have loved to use, but that other user named larissa-stock appears to have been off the site for 446 weeks now, since 2010, so other then crediting you, and i credited her, she most likely wouldn't see it.
