About Me


I don't want to get anyone's hopes up, but I think I might slowly get back into this game of creating both artwork and stock photos.

The past few years have been full of constant change and growth, and although I've had to struggle through some difficult times - I feel like a more balanced soul because of everything.

I'm currently dating someone who is also very creative and very supportive of whatever I decide I want to focus on.  It's been liberating, and I'm hoping we can grow together and encourage each other to be the best versions of ourselves that we're capable of.  

This journal's random Natalie fact: I have 16 piercings.  7 in each ear, 1 in my belly button and 1 in my nose. 
  
Rules

You may use my stock photography for just about anything. But here are my few rules:
1. Anywhere you post artwork or images which use my stock photography (*including as reference for a drawing/painting!), you MUST include my name (Natalie Paquette) or my user name (fetishfaerie) in the image itself, or in the description of the image. If you're posting it outside of dA, find a handy way to do this, please. It would be fantastic if you could link back to me here, or include my email address (natalie_paquette@yahoo.com) as well.
2. Note me if you use one of my stocks. I want to see what you people can make! That's most of the fun of doing this whole thing, anyway.
3. *Updated September 14th, 2010* If you would like to sell an image you've created using my stock, you have my permission to sell it through dA Prints - UNLESS THE IMAGE IS OTHERWISE MARKED (ie, my stock photos containing models other than myself).  (These images will be clearly marked with "This image may not be used for Commercial Purposes" right in the photo itself.) This applies to all dA artists.  However, if you would like to sell prints or merchandise through other means, you must contact me for permission first.  Also, if your work involving my stock photography is going to be submitted for publication anywhere (magazines, books, etc.) you MUST obtain my permission first.. and please see rule 4.
4. *New as of December 16th, 2007*  If you are using any of my images on commercial products (you must gain my permission first - note or email me for that!), you must provide me with a copy of that product.  For example, if you use my work to make your band's CD cover, a book cover, if something gets printed in a book or magazine, etc. you must send me a copy of it.  Considering that I provide these images for free, it's the only form of compensation I can think of that would be fair.  If you're going to be making money from it, I should get something too.  
** If you put artwork using my stock onto items at the dA store, or on products through websites like CafePress, you do not need to send me the product.  I know they make those as-ordered, not in bulk.  HOWEVER, if you wish to be so generous I certainly wouldn't say no. ;) Just contact me for mailing information.  Thanks!


F.A.Q 

Q. Can I post artwork I've created using your stock on my personal webpage?
A. Yes! You can post artwork you've created using my stock ANYWHERE you'd like, so long as you give me proper credit. (Linkage rocks, too.)
Q. Do you do requests?
A. Sort of. I'm always open to suggestions, but I make no promises. Photographers are hard to come by and some things I just can't do by myself. Time is also an issue, and so is interest. But don't be afraid to ask! I may just decide to oblige you.
Q.  Can I use your stock photography as reference for a drawing or painting?
A.  Yes!  I love to see my work used for more traditional purposes.  Please remember to credit me!
Q.  Can I sell an image I've created using your stock?
A.  If it's through dA prints, you already have my permission.  If you'd like to sell it through another website, put it on merchandise, or sell it personally, you must contact me for permission first.  (And please see the new Rule 4.)
Q.  I'd love to buy one of your stock photos as a print!  Why don't you have prints enabled?
A.  Honestly, if you like one of my raw stock images that much, then download or save the full version of it and print it out yourself.  I won't be offended in the slightest.  I feel silly making free stock photos available as prints that people have to pay for (especially since the profit is so low - dA makes most of the money!). 
Q.  I manipulated one of your photos, and sent you a note - but you haven't left a comment.  Did you look at it yet?
A.  I've probably looked at it, but I didn't have the time at that moment to leave a thought-out comment.  I fall behind very quickly on notes and comments here at dA, and I apologize.  If it's been more than three weeks and I've yet to comment, please send me a note again!
Q.  I make stuff, and I'd love for you to model it.  Would you do that and let me use your photos in my advertisements/on my website?
A.  If you want to send me your product and let me keep it, I'd be more than happy to show it off.  Just note me and we'll discuss details.

I must apologize, but some of my recent work had to be removed.  Again.  If any of you have used the images already, that’s fine - and I’m sorry that now your link may be broken, as the original stock source has been taken down.

I can’t go into too specific detail, but I really feel like I need to express myself in regards to the situation.

History:  My marriage was incredibly controlling for the last several years.  The relationship did not start out that way.  He respected the fact that I was a free spirit, he loved me for my independence and my strength and my many forms of expression.  But due to his addictions and his insecurities, which he refused to address or seek help for, over time he took things away from me.  Traveling.  Seeing certain friends.  Spending time with my family.  Posting nudes.  Posing for photographers, regardless of their gender or what type of shoot it was.  He threatened to leave if I didn’t take down a number of older works (which he was originally fine with, when they were created and posted), so to save my marriage I did as he asked.  I had a relationship, a home, my life to consider.  It was a huge issue but compared to taking down a few images, losing the person I loved, going bankrupt and having no place to live seemed like a steep price to pay for “some old photos”.

Eventually, the pile of bullshit became too big and I realized I couldn’t live with the oppression (and emotional abuse), so the divorce happened.  I am me again.  I am fighting hard to find myself and be strong and express myself, and stand for what I believe in and not let anyone ever control me in that way again.

Present:  I am in a new relationship.  Without going into too much detail or personal information, due to respecting the other people involved, I will just say that I am very happy.  He is also a photographer and he supports my freedoms.  He encourages me to express myself, and to continue doing the things that I love.  However, he is also coming out of a marriage.  

When I originally posted some photos that he took, I credited him as the photographer.  I’ve been modeling for 16 years and that’s just what you do.  It’s common courtesy.  Unfortunately, this meant that if anyone searched for his name, these images would appear.  (Under mature content, which takes a little effort on dA to be able to view.)  And that is apparently inappropriate.  Despite the fact that I have posed for dozens of photographers over the years, taken self-portraits, and even posed nude for fine art classes.  And that in NY, it’s legal for me to be topless wherever a man can be topless in public (and in the privacy of my own home and my own pool, where these images were taken).  … out of respect for the wishes of these third parties, I am removing the images.

It tastes sour to me.  It feels like the things that I fought against in my old relationship.  It’s fighting the system again.  It’s boiling the blood of my inner feminist and humanist and artist and … soul.  The images are not sexual in nature.  They only show breasts.  And apparently even removing his name from the credits is unacceptable, because it’s “the principle”, despite the fact that we’ve been living together for 7 months and we’re not keeping any secrets and I’ve been posing for and posting images of this nature for over a decade.  (On that note, I will be re-uploading the old work that my ex-husband insisted that I remove.  I just have to boot up the old hard drive to locate them.)  

I don’t mean for any of this to be dramatic, and I cannot and will not go into specific detail about the people involved, out of respect for their privacy, but I feel like something had to be said. 

… hopefully, once everything is said and done, I will be able to express myself without restriction.  Until then, I must censor myself and the work that I share. 

Here’s to a brighter future, once the dark past and murky present are worked through.

About Me


It's been several years since I've updated this journal, and nearly as long since I've been serious about submitting (or even creating) much work.  A summary....
1) Phil and I bought the house.  I've worked hard on this place and it feels like home.  Every room has been painted some wild color and there are skulls and faeries everywhere.
2) Phil and I are getting a divorce.  It's best for both of us.  I hope that we can both grow into better versions of ourselves because of it. 
3) I've been laid off from my position of 8 + years.
4) I will be starting cosmetology classes this month, and I am SUPER EXCITED.  I already have a massage therapy license, so my hope is to eventually work for a salon/spa where I can do pretty much everything, as well as offer my creative skill set of photography and art in some way.
5) I am hoping to become active on here again.  I've really missed this community, and once I find the stashed photos that I deleted from this account, I will be re-uploading them as well as adding new work.

This journal's random Natalie fact: I live with 4 cats: Boris, Samhain, Loki and Liam.  Boris is a 17 year old short-haired tuxedo who originally hails from Holland.  Samhain is a 5 or 6 year old black long-haired Norwegian Forest Cat or Maine Coone who used to wander the streets of Troy as a kitten until she decided to plant herself on my doorstep and cry to be let in because she'd chosen me to be her guardian.  Loki and Liam are 4 year old brothers that were adopted at the local Humane Society.  They are both short-haired tuxedos, and the two snuggliest cats I have ever had the joy of meeting.

About Me



A few pieces of news and something of an apology....
1) My official website is up and running - w w w . n a t a l i e p a q u e t t e . c o m  I'm still not entirely happy with some of the headers and fonts, but I got tired of fighting with the Wix software.
2) My husband and I are in the process of buying a house.  Yay!  .. sort of.  We put the offer in on June 26th, and because it's a short sale it took FOREVER to get cleared through the seller's bank.  All seemed well and good and we were supposed to close on November 14th - but then we found out that the sellers are in bankruptcy, so everything has to go to the bankruptcy court and a judge/trustee have to "approve" the sale.  .. so even though we've forked out nearly $1000 for the inspection, mortgage application fees, and moving supplies, there's the tiniest chance we won't get this place.  ... sigh.  
So any prayers/faerie wishes/happy thoughts/crossed fingers would be much appreciated.  I am currently living out of boxes and fearful that we won't get the keys before the end of the year, in which case I will have to pay for a storage unit, move ALL OF MY SHIT TWICE, and live with my parents for awhile.  Ungh.
BUT THIS HOUSE HAS A POOL, so you can be darn sure that if we get it, next summer there will be some underwater photos.  Huzzah!
... which leads me to
3) I have been living out of boxes for about 3 weeks now.  All of my photography equipment is packed and I have no room to set up a backdrop anywhere in the apartment.  My creative life is at something of a stand still.  So I apologize to those of you who are waiting for specific reference photos (or are just sad to see me not updating.)


This journal's random Natalie fact: I am part mermaid but I can't open my eyes underwater.  Heh.  .. something I'll need to work on once we have the pool.

About Me



Thanks, everyone, for the warm wedding wishes. ^-^  Next step on the "I'm an adult" agenda - buying a house!  Hopefully sometime this spring.  We'll see.


I just turned TWENTY-SEVEN.  You can totally round that up to thirty.  wtf?  But I had a great birthday with some girlfriends of mine, just hanging out at my apartment and drinking copious amounts of wine, champagne, and rum.  HUZZAH.  Here's me and my birthday cake:




This journal's random Natalie fact: I'm hypersensitive to ice.  That means that when ice touches my skin for awhile (like 30 seconds) I break out in hives.  Seriously?  SERIOUSLY?  I'm also allergic to aloe vera.  Thank you, Universe.  Your sense of humor is astounding.

About Me



I am officially married. ^-^  HUZZAH!  We got a judge to come over to our house and got hitched in the red room, under my vampire portrait.  .. lol  Yeah, seriously.  But sorry, no decent photos.  (Phil was being a goober.)  Our official wedding date is June 21st - the summer solstice.  I figured it would be an easy date to remember!  On June 26th, we had a party for friends and family in my parents' backyard... with an OCEAN THEME.  I had the best cake ever.  For serious.




Thank you to :iconfresh-eye-coffee: for taking photos. <3


I'm loving married life.  .. it's really not that much different than engaged life, or dating life...  Phil and I just... are.  There really aren't words to describe it.  (Although I have both angsty and gagworthingly-sweet poetry to try and prove otherwise!)  But being able to flash my wedding band (black stainless steel, btw) when people in public are getting too friendly?  Priceless.  And I love to call him "Husband".  


PS - I kept my own name.

This journal's random Natalie fact: I am addicted to old junk.  It's partly my grandma Jean's fault, partly my own pirating ways.  For example - last weekend I nearly ran my car off the road turning around while screaming, "ESTATE SALE!" .. my friend Lauren took it all in stride.  I bought a broken frame, a stack of old black and white photos circa WWII, a new tripod, a thimble, some old crusty glass bottles, two matching stone hawk statues (one has a broken beak!).. and got a free broken camera thrown in because apparently the old guy realized I love junk.
  
Rules

You may use my stock photography for just about anything. But here are my few rules:
1. Anywhere you post artwork or images which use my stock photography (*including as reference for a drawing/painting!), you MUST include my name (Natalie Paquette) or my user name (fetishfaerie) in the image itself, or in the description of the image. If you're posting it outside of dA, find a handy way to do this, please. It would be fantastic if you could link back to me here, or include my email address (fetishfaerie@aol.com) as well.
2. Note me if you use one of my stocks. I want to see what you people can make! That's most of the fun of doing this whole thing, anyway.
3. *Updated September 14th, 2010* If you would like to sell an image you've created using my stock, you have my permission to sell it through dA Prints - UNLESS THE IMAGE IS OTHERWISE MARKED (ie, my stock photos containing models other than myself).  (These images will be clearly marked with "This image may not be used for Commercial Purposes" right in the photo itself.) This applies to all dA artists.  However, if you would like to sell prints or merchandise through other means, you must contact me for permission first.  Also, if your work involving my stock photography is going to be submitted for publication anywhere (magazines, books, etc.) you MUST obtain my permission first.. and please see rule 4.
4. *New as of December 16th, 2007*  If you are using any of my images on commercial products (you must gain my permission first - note or email me for that!), you must provide me with a copy of that product.  For example, if you use my work to make your band's CD cover, a book cover, if something gets printed in a book or magazine, etc. you must send me a copy of it.  Considering that I provide these images for free, it's the only form of compensation I can think of that would be fair.  If you're going to be making money from it, I should get something too.  
** If you put artwork using my stock onto items at the dA store, or on products through websites like CafePress, you do not need to send me the product.  I know they make those as-ordered, not in bulk.  HOWEVER, if you wish to be so generous I certainly wouldn't say no. ;)Just contact me for mailing information.  Thanks!


F.A.Q

Q. Can I post artwork I've created using your stock on my personal webpage?
A. Yes! You can post artwork you've created using my stock
ANYWHERE you'd like, so long as you give me proper credit. (Linkage rocks, too.)
Q. Do you do requests?
A. Sort of. I'm always open to suggestions, but I make no promises. Photographers are hard to come by and some things I just can't do by myself. Time is also an issue, and so is interest. But don't be afraid to ask! I may just decide to oblige you.
Q.  Can I use your stock photography as reference for a drawing or painting?
A.  Yes!  I love to see my work used for more traditional purposes.  Please remember to credit me!
Q.  Can I sell an image I've created using your stock?
A.  If it's through dA prints, you already have my permission.  If you'd like to sell it through another website, put it on merchandise, or sell it personally, you must contact me for permission first.  (And please see the new Rule 4.)
Q.  I'd love to buy one of your stock photos as a print!  Why don't you have prints enabled?
A.  Honestly, if you like one of my raw stock images that much, then download or save the full version of it and print it out yourself.  I won't be offended in the slightest.  I feel silly making free stock photos available as prints that people have to pay for (especially since the profit is so low - dA makes most of the money!).  However, if you'd like to purchase some of my work in an effort to support my artistic habits financially - check out my CafePress store!  
www.cafepress.com/fetishfaerie
Q.  I manipulated one of your photos, and sent you a note - but you haven't left a comment.  Did you look at it yet?
A.  I've probably looked at it, but I didn't have the time at that moment to leave a thought-out comment.  I fall behind very quickly on notes and comments here at dA, and I apologize.  If it's been more than three weeks and I've yet to comment, please send me a note again!
Q.  I make stuff, and I'd love for you to model it.  Would you do that and let me use your photos in my advertisements/on my website?
A.  If you want to send me your product and let me keep it, I'd
be more than happy to show it off.  Just note me and we'll discuss details.

About Me



The wedding is approaching!  .. still not sure what day it'll actually happen, but sometime before the 26th.  (We're picking up the marriage license on Tuesday morning and I'm going to try to get a better list of local marriage officiates and available judges.)  I am SO EXCITED about my bachelorette party next weekend - it's going to be a blast!


Speaking of... time to announce the winners of the Pirate Wench contest!

This journal's random Natalie fact: The summer before 6th grade, I bruised 3 ribs and almost bit through my lower lip.  Why?  I was pretending to be Catwoman, and I was standing on a coffee table that I imagined was a rooftop.. surveying all of Gotham.  One of the table legs snapped suddenly so the next thing I knew I was on the floor, couldn't breathe, and had blood in my mouth.  The most embarrassing part about it was explaining to the super-hot young paramedic WHY I was on the coffee table in the first place, and he laughed and said his 3 and 5 year olds played Batman and Robin all the time. :P

About Me



CONTEST!!!


*DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO SUNDAY MAY 9th!*


Phil and I are getting married on June 25th.  On June 12th, I will be having my bachelorette party (a little early, but I can't do it the weekend before I get hitched because I will be attending a friend's wedding that weekend.  Oh, June weddings!)  The bachelorette party will of course be PIRATE THEMED.  We are getting a limo (our ship!) and will be spending the night drinking champagne from the bottle and eating cupcakes.. and shaking our pirate booties.

SO - I need a sexy pirate wench illustration to use on my invitations.  I could feasibly do this myself, but I'm so swamped with other planning (and other projects), that the thought of squeezing it in makes me sad.  ... but I realized: I could host a contest on deviantArt, considering all of the talented people I know. ;)


Guidelines:

1) The pirate wench should look like me.  .. at least a little.  (Exaggerations are entirely acceptable - the hair can be longer, the boobs can be bigger, whatever.)  If there's color, her hair must be red.  (I also have a layer of black underneath, but that's not necessary.)

2) You must be willing to email me a decent resolution of the file (with no watermark) so I may create my invitations and print them out on my home printer.  I WILL ONLY BE USING THIS IMAGE ON THE INVITATIONS.  I will not be selling them, redistributing them, or claiming them as my own design.  In fact, I would be more than happy to credit the name of the winning artist on the card itself.

3) The image must be an ILLUSTRATION.  Preferably without a background, or only a simple one.  The image will be incorporated with text on the front of the invitation card. I will not be accepting photo-manipulations.

4) THE DEADLINE: is May 5th.---- NOW EXTENDED TO SUNDAY, MAY 9th!!!-----  I realize this is somewhat short notice, but I am also not expecting full-blown paintings.  Simple black and white ink work would be fabulous.


The Prizes
* All images submitted to me will be featured in my next journal, provided that they are uploaded to your deviantART account so I may use thumbnail links.

* THE GRAND PRIZE: A printed copy of the invitation, a 3 month subscription to deviantART, and two signed 4" x 6" prints of any artwork, photograph, or stock image I have on the following deviantART accounts: :iconfetishfaerie-stock: :iconfetishfaerie: :iconfetishfaerie-photos: plus a small feature of your gallery in an upcoming journal entry.
* Second place prize: three signed 4" x 6" prints of any artwork, photograph, or stock image I have on the previously mentioned deviantART accounts, plus a small feature of your gallery in an upcoming journal entry.


Submissions should be uploaded to your deviantArt gallery, and then a note should be sent to me with a link to the artwork.

I will be moving next weekend!  (And hopefully without much of an interruption in internet service... I've got someone coming out the 29th to hook up the internet.)  I am so busy packing and cleaning and throwing stuff out... it's exhausting.  BUT I will finally have a small photo studio, and many interesting places to shoot... it's the 2nd floor of a huge old brownstone that was built in the 1800's, so there are lovely fireplaces and chandeleirs and big huge windows.  Yay!


Here are a few shots of the new place, sans any furniture:



Aaand.. some projects I've completed in the past few months:

About Me


Sorry I haven't updated in ages... either my journal or my deviations.  I haven't been spending much time on self-portraiture, and I don't typically offer photos of my models as stock.  It just feels weird.  But I HAVE been doing art and photography and modeling!  Here's a smattering of my recent non-stock work:




Tomorrow I will have 4 pieces displayed in a local gallery.  I've joined the Upstate Artists Guild and their October show is called "Myth Conceptions" - for FANTASY.  It was meant to be. :)

Otherwise, stuff is same-old, same-old.  I'm excited for Halloween.  This weekend I'll be getting my mother's old Queen-size bed so there will be more room for me and Phil and the cat.  I'm currently working on dozens of projects at once, as per usual.  Blah, blah.  lol  

PS - If you've created work using my stock and I haven't commented or faved it yet, please note me again.  I know I'm missing some.  Sorry I'm such a spaz!

:iconcbree: drew this amazing portrait and SENT ME THE ORIGINAL.  And I'm a douchebag for not thanking her yet.  I received it ages ago but I've been falling so far behind on my deviantART business it totally slipped my mind.  
Thank you, sweetheart.  I am going to frame it and hang it in my living room.  I love it.  

I am always so delighted and surprised by these sorts of gestures.  They really make me feel appreciated and remind me of one of the many reasons why I create and share stock.

A. Yes! You can post artwork you've created using my stock ANYWHERE you'd like, so long as you give me proper credit. (Linkage rocks, too.)

Q. Do you do requests?
A. Sort of. I'm always open to suggestions, but I make no promises. Photographers are hard to come by and some things I just can't do by myself. Time is also an issue, and so is interest. But don't be afraid to ask! I may just decide to oblige you.

Q.  Can I use your stock photography as reference for a drawing or painting?
A.  Yes!  I love to see my work used for more traditional purposes.  Please remember to credit me!

Q.  Can I sell an image I've created using your stock?
A.  If it's through dA prints, you already have my permission.  If you'd like to sell it through another website, put it on merchandise, or sell it personally, you must contact me for permission first.  (And please see the new Rule 4.)

Q.  I'd love to buy one of your stock photos as a print!  Why don't you have prints enabled?
A.  Honestly, if you like one of my raw stock images that much, then download or save the full version of it and print it out yourself.  I won't be offended in the slightest.  I feel silly making free stock photos available as prints that people have to pay for (especially since the profit is so low - dA makes most of the money!).  However, if you'd like to purchase some of my work in an effort to support my artistic habits financially - check out my CafePress store!  www.cafepress.com/fetishfaerie

Q.  I manipulated one of your photos, and sent you a note - but you haven't left a comment.  Did you look at it yet?
A.  I've probably looked at it, but I didn't have the time at that moment to leave a thought-out comment.  I fall behind very quickly on notes and comments here at dA, and I apologize.  If it's been more than three weeks and I've yet to comment, please send me a note again!

Q.  I make stuff, and I'd love for you to model it.  Would you do that and let me use your photos in my advertisements/on my website?
A.  If you want to send me your product and let me keep it, I'd be more than happy to show it off.  Just note me and we'll discuss details.

About Me
!!!!!!!!


Phil, my boyfriend of nearly 5 years, gave me an engagement ring on Sunday evening.  ^-^
I was playing Plants vs Zombies.  He handed me a white porcelain box with the casual comment that I could keep some jewelry in it.  While I was oohing and ahhing, I realized there was something IN the box.
It was another box, an older box, covered in antique red velvet.
Inside of it was a diamond ring. ^-^
Princess of Romance here, I blurted out, "Are you fucking serious? Where did you get this?"
(It's a family heirloom.)
I didn't believe him for the first few minutes.  XD  I thought it was some kind of joke.

Soo.... I'm engaged!  Very happily, might I add.  
No ideas on a date yet, but I'm thinking early next summer.  Or maybe even this fall.  XD  Why wait?  All I want is a barbeque.  'cuz I'm classy like that.


In Other News of Awesomeness


:iconfourteenthstar: recently created some artwork using my stock that I fell in love with. Here: chix0r.deviantart.com/art/Butt…
Graciously, she asked if I'd be interested in a print.  OF COURSE I was. ;)  
So a few weeks later, I'm at work and I get a call from my mother that a ginormous package has arrived in the mail for me.
I was like, "Whhaa??  I didn't order anything!"
So I rushed over after work to find THIS waiting for me:

My jaw hit the floor.
So did my mother's.
;)
Like, ASDF@&^$324dSD!!!  Seriously.
So three cheers for one of most awesome dA artists ever.
Way to show the love.  ^-^  Thank you.

Also, :iconmynti: sent me a package of cards bearing me as a mermaid:
Pettin Da Fish by mynti  
THANK YOU!


I am always so delighted and surprised by these sorts of gestures.  They really make me feel appreciated and remind me of one of the many reasons why I create and share stock.

Rules



You may use my stock photography for just about anything. But here are my few rules:

1. Anywhere you post artwork or images which use my stock photography (*including as reference for a drawing/painting!), you MUST include my name (Natalie Paquette) or my user name (fetishfaerie) in the image itself, or in the description of the image. If you're posting it outside of dA, find a handy way to do this, please. It would be fantastic if you could link back to me here, or include my email address (fetishfaerie@aol.com) as well.

2. Note me if you use one of my stocks. I want to see what you people can make! That's most of the fun of doing this whole thing, anyway.

3. *Updated November 5th, 2006* If you would like to sell an image you've created using my stock, you have my permission to sell it through dA Prints.  This applies to all dA artists.  However, if you would like to sell prints or merchandise through other means, you must contact me for permission first.  Also, if your work involving my stock photography is going to be submitted for publication anywhere (magazines, books, etc.) you MUST obtain my permission first.. and please see rule 4.

4. *New as of December 16th, 2007*  If you are using any of my images on commercial products (you must gain my permission first - note or email me for that!), you must provide me with a copy of that product.  For example, if you use my work to make your band's CD cover, a book cover, if something gets printed in a book or magazine, etc. you must send me a copy of it.  Considering that I provide these images for free, it's the only form of compensation I can think of that would be fair.  If you're going to be making money from it, I should too.  
** If you put artwork using my stock onto items at the dA store, or on products through websites like CafePress, you do not need to send me the product.  I know they make those as-ordered, not in bulk.  HOWEVER, if you wish to be so generous I certainly wouldn't say no. ;)
Just contact me for mailing information.  Thanks!

This journal's random Natalie fact: When I was 11, I bruised 2 ribs and nearly bit through my lower lip while pretending to be Catwoman.  Broke the poor coffee table.  The most mortifying part of the incident was that the paramedic who was checking me for broken bones asked me how it happend and I stupidly told him, so he laughed and told me that his 3 and 5 year old played the same game all the time.

About Me


HUZZAH!  .. I have my computer back.  It required a back-up and reformat. :P  More than half of my shit is still sitting on my external hard drive, waiting to be put back on.  It will happen soon.  But life is crazy, as per usual, and I just can't make myself get all gung-ho about it and just get it over with. :P

I made new graphics for my journal. ^-^  Are they too difficult to read?  I like the red and blue.  Don't know why.  I haven't transferred my fonts yet so I was rather limited. lol

ANYWAY

More exciting - I've decided to feature some of Jeff's work, because 1) he's an amazing artist 2) I think even more people should be leaving funny comments on his work and 3) he's been using my stock forever as a reference source for a character is his on-going graphic novel.  For more info, simply look at his Jeff's gallery:

Well.. bad news and fun news.

Bad news: my computer is once again infected with a scam virus.  Hackers need more productive, less illegal hobbies.  Seriously.  If you're so smart to design these things, use your geeky powers for good!  
I hope they all get caught and locked in jail.  Argh.
Hopefully it will be back up and running next week.

FUN NEWS:
I will be at the NYCC (New York Comic Con) this Sunday, February 8th.  I will be with :iconscarletnight89: & :iconvinroc:.
If you're going and you want to say hi, send me a note and we'll figure out a meet-up spot or swap numbers or whatever.
I'm so excited to see Anna Torv from Fringe. ^-^ Crush.

PS - I hate the new layout.  Now I need to make new graphics for my journal. *shakes fist*

This journal's random Natalie fact: If I had to choose between being a vampire or a werewolf, I think I'd choose werewolf - so long as I still got the immortality bit.  As sexy as vampires are, I think I OD'ed on vampire literature in middle school and high school.  Werewolves get to run around in the woods and hunt and be all bad-ass and howl at the moon.  I think it could be sexy.  Just furrier.  XD

On January 28th, 2009, I will turn 25 - a quarter of a century!  It's strange.  ... for some reason this feels more important than 30.  Maybe just because I like quarters and halves.  Maybe because I realize that now is the time to make changes.  I quit smoking cigarettes on New Year's Eve, changed my diet, and will soon begin exercising hardcore like I used to.  What I have needs to be maintained.  I will live forever, damnit!

Anyway - birthday greetings are always appreciated. ;)  I love mermaids, pirates, werewolves, vampires, Batman... Haldir from LotR, Lucious Malfoy from Harry Potter... y'know, make me something silly!    

On another note - did you know sometimes I make my own photomanipulations?  I do!  Wanna see?

This journal's random Natalie fact: I wear glasses.  I've worn glasses since 1986.  (I was almost three.)  I tried contacts once but they gave me ocular migraines and the eye doctor was a dick about everything.  I remove my glasses for photoshoots, but after a few hours of hard work my eyes get tired and the left one crosses in a little.  It's silly.
  

Rules



You may use my stock photography for just about anything. But here are my few rules:

1. Anywhere you post artwork or images which use my stock photography (*including as reference for a drawing/painting!), you MUST include my name (Natalie Paquette) or my user name (fetishfaerie) in the image itself, or in the description of the image. If you're posting it outside of dA, find a handy way to do this, please. It would be fantastic if you could link back to me here, or include my email address (fetishfaerie@aol.com) as well.

2. Note me if you use one of my stocks. I want to see what you people can make! That's most of the fun of doing this whole thing, anyway.

3. *Updated November 5th, 2006* If you would like to sell an image you've created using my stock, you have my permission to sell it through dA Prints.  This applies to all dA artists.  However, if you would like to sell prints or merchandise through other means, you must contact me for permission first.  Also, if your work involving my stock photography is going to be submitted for publication anywhere (magazines, books, etc.) you MUST obtain my permission first.. and please see rule 4.

4. *New as of December 16th, 2007*  If you are using any of my images on commercial products (you must gain my permission first - note or email me for that!), you must provide me with a copy of that product.  For example, if you use my work to make your band's CD cover, a book cover, if something gets printed in a book or magazine, etc. you must send me a copy of it.  Considering that I provide these images for free, it's the only form of compensation I can think of that would be fair.  If you're going to be making money from it, I should too.  
** If you put artwork using my stock onto items at the dA store, or on products through websites like CafePress, you do not need to send me the product.  I know they make those as-ordered, not in bulk.  HOWEVER, if you wish to be so generous I certainly wouldn't say no. ;)
Just contact me for mailing information.  Thanks!



F.A.Q



Q. Can I post artwork I've created using your stock on my personal webpage?
A. Yes! You can post artwork you've created using my stock ANYWHERE you'd like, so long as you give me proper credit. (Linkage rocks, too.)

Q. Do you do requests?
A. Sort of. I'm always open to suggestions, but I make no promises. Photographers are hard to come by and some things I just can't do by myself. Time is also an issue, and so is interest. But don't be afraid to ask! I may just decide to oblige you.

Q.  Can I use your stock photography as reference for a drawing or painting?
A.  Yes!  I love to see my work used for more traditional purposes.  Please remember to credit me!

Q.  Can I sell an image I've created using your stock?
A.  If it's through dA prints, you already have my permission.  If you'd like to sell it through another website, put it on merchandise, or sell it personally, you must contact me for permission first.  (And please see the new Rule 4.)

Q.  I'd love to buy one of your stock photos as a print!  Why don't you have prints enabled?
A.  Honestly, if you like one of my raw stock images that much, then download or save the full version of it and print it out yourself.  I won't be offended in the slightest.  I feel silly making free stock photos available as prints that people have to pay for (especially since the profit is so low - dA makes most of the money!).  However, if you'd like to purchase some of my work in an effort to support my artistic habits financially - check out my CafePress store!  www.cafepress.com/fetishfaerie

Q.  I manipulated one of your photos, and sent you a note - but you haven't left a comment.  Did you look at it yet?
A.  I've probably looked at it, but I didn't have the time at that moment to leave a thought-out comment.  I fall behind very quickly on notes and comments here at dA, and I apologize.  If it's been more than three weeks and I've yet to comment, please send me a note again!

Q.  I make stuff, and I'd love for you to model it.  Would you do that and let me use your photos in my advertisements/on my website?
A.  If you want to send me your product and let me keep it, I'd be more than happy to show it off.  Just note me and we'll discuss details.

About Me


I love this place.  Seriously.  People gripe about the idiots that run rampant and administration and blah blah blah but I seriously, really love deviantART.  For many reasons!
It gives me a place to camwhore hardcore and occasionally I even get constructive criticism and I get to see other artists create work that I'm somehow involved in.  AAAANNND... sometimes that resulting artwork gets used in really awesome ways.

LIKE THESE!



And the respective artists were awesome enough to send me copies. ;)

About Me


Prepare yourself.  It's ranting time.

I would like to start off this rant on a positive note and express my thanks to every single one of you dA artists who has properly credited my stock, has shown me their resulting work created with the aide of my stock, or has sent me a link to a deviation using my stock that I have not seen yet (and may not have been credited.)

I create and share stock photography and tutorials and artwork because I love the sense of community here.  I LOVE to be part of someone else's creative process and inspire new work.  I don't ask for any monetary compensation, and even encourage artists to sell work they've created using my stock (copies of magazines my face has been printed in is just fabulous.  My "I'm Famous!" box is growing.)  

Now.. I only ask for two things in return for using my stock.  I need to be credited with either my name and/or a link back to my dA gallery WHEREVER the image is posted on the internet.  And I also ask that when my stock is used, I get a chance to see whatever's been created.

Is this so difficult?  Apparently for some people, </b>it is.</b>

Now then.. let's clarify stock usage.  ANYTIME you use an image in a photomanipulation (even if you manipulate it beyond recognition), or as a reference for a drawing or painting (whether it be digital or traditional media), that counts.  Even if you feel that your resulting artwork doesn't look anything like the original stock image, YOU MUST CREDIT THE STOCK ARTIST.  It's just common courtesy.  
And if you USE SOMEONE'S LIKENESS (ie, their face – technically a pose can't be copyrighted), you need to credit that person and also the stock artist/photographer.  (In my case, that's typically me on all counts.)

I will not mention names, and I am currently waiting for dA administrators to look into it, but I have recently experienced some serious rudeness and misunderstanding on this subject.

An artist on dA thought that since she used my stock (my FACE, to be exact) for a digital painting and NOT in a photomanipulation, she did not have to credit me or make me aware of the fact that she'd used my stock.  Instead of linking to my stock image, she linked to a "step-by-step" process of how she digitally drew and painted her deviation "FROM SCRATCH".  After numerous attempts to communicate with her (English is not her first language), she is still refusing to credit me.  The really sad part of all of this is that I reduced my original stock image to 50% its size and laid it over her " painted from scratch " digital painting.  Y'know what happened?  Every single line in the face and hand fit perfectly.  PERFECTLY.  I don't think even Michelangelo could've pulled that one off.

What's worse is that she's trying to sell prints of this through dA, and she's also submitted it to a magazine contest.
She has hidden every single comment I left on the image (nothing rude, just links to my original stock photo for inquiring dA members who had questioned her process).  

I'M JUST ASKING FOR MY NAME TO BE DISPLAYED WITH THE ARTWORK.  IT'S MY FREAKING FACE!!

* End Rant *

In closing, I'd like to ask all of my faithful watchers and stock users to just keep an eye out for me – if you see my work being used anywhere and you don't see my name attached to it, please gimme a heads up!  I'll do the leg work, I don't mind. ;)  

Thanks, guys. <3

This journal's random Natalie fact: My parents were expecting a boy.  My name was supposed to be Jonathan Robert.  When I was born almost 2 months early and I was a GIRL, they didn't have a name picked out.  So "Natalie" came from the hospital phone book, and "Jean" came from my father's mother.

About Me


Oh geez.  I've got 26 unread notes and 807 messages.  Sorry I'm a slow-poke. ^-^  Every summer things just seem to go into fast-forward and I'm like "WOAH!  Slow down!  Must find time to breathe..."   But I'm having lots of fun, so whatever.

One of my recent time-stealing activities was taking a trip to NJ to visit my lovely friend Isobel, :iconfresh-eye-coffee: who is an absolutely smashing photographer (and model! .. no time to shoot her, unfortunately.. that'll happen next visit!)  We did 6 sets in total over 2 days, because we're awesome like that.  

Here are some highlights I've chosen from those sets, as well as some other work I've got up in my Modeling account: (as a warning, a few of them contain nudity)

About Me


My last journal entry featured other artists... this one is going to feature me.
Why?  Well, why the hell not? XD
Did you know I have three other accounts on deviantART?  Yeah.  I do.  It's almost sad, but I'm borderline obsessive-compulsive and I was raised by a Virgo so EVERYTHING MUST BE IN ITS PROPER PLACE.  Or I get the twitchies.  Sorting stuff out seemed to make sense.
:iconfetishfaerie: - fetishfaerie - This was my first ever account, and includes all of my traditional artwork, photomanipulations, digitial paintings, etc.
:iconfetishfaerie-model: - fetishfaerie-model - I take a lot of photos of myself (duh), so this is the place where you can find photographs that OTHER people have taken of me.  Some of them are photographers I've found through the internet, through networking.. or are just friends I tricked into working with me.  ;)
:iconfetishfaerie-photos: fetishfaerie-photos - I'm not a total narcissist.  (Just mostly.)  I take photos of other people too!  .. and the world around me.  And sometimes I don't share it as stock (although I love to be generous .. a lot of models aren't comfortable with the idea and I respect that.)

So here are highlights I've chosen from my non-stock Photo account.
  



Comments are loved!  You can't grow without feedback and sunshine.


PS - I have my first real grown-up job with an annual salary (as opposed to hourly wages) and benefits and everything.  Go me!

PPS - Sorry if I haven't gotten back to your note/message/comment.  I'm slowly catching up - I'll get there soon!

This journal's random Natalie fact: I love chedder cheese.  I like it so sharp that it bites me back.  YUM.
  

Rules



You may use my stock photography for just about anything. But here are my few rules:

1. Anywhere you post artwork or images which use my stock photography, you MUST include my name (Natalie Paquette) or my user name (fetishfaerie) in the image itself, or in the description of the image. If you're posting it outside of dA, find a handy way to do this, please. It would be fantastic if you could link back to me here, or include my email address (fetishfaerie@aol.com) as well.

2. Note me if you use one of my stocks. I want to see what you people can make! That's most of the fun of doing this whole thing, anyway.

3. *Updated November 5th, 2006* If you would like to sell an image you've created using my stock, you have my permission to sell it through dA Prints.  This applies to all dA artists.  However, if you would like to sell prints or merchandise through other means, you must contact me for permission first.  Also, if your work involving my stock photography is going to be submitted for publication anywhere (magazines, books, etc.) you MUST obtain my permission first.. and please see rule 4.

4. *New as of December 16th, 2007*  If you are using any of my images on commercial products (you must gain my permission first - note or email me for that!), you must provide me with a copy of that product.  For example, if you use my work to make your band's CD cover, a book cover, if something gets printed in a book or magazine, etc. you must send me a copy of it.  Considering that I provide these images for free, it's the only form of compensation I can think of that would be fair.  If you're going to be making money from it, I should too.  
** If you put artwork using my stock onto items at the dA store, or on products through websites like CafePress, you do not need to send me the product.  I know they make those as-ordered, not in bulk.  HOWEVER, if you wish to be so generous I certainly wouldn't say no. ;)
Just contact me for mailing information.  Thanks!



F.A.Q



Q. Can I post artwork I've created using your stock on my personal webpage?
A. Yes! You can post artwork you've created using my stock ANYWHERE you'd like, so long as you give me proper credit. (Linkage rocks, too.)

Q. Do you do requests?
A. Sort of. I'm always open to suggestions, but I make no promises. Photographers are hard to come by and some things I just can't do by myself. Time is also an issue, and so is interest. But don't be afraid to ask! I may just decide to oblige you.

Q.  Can I use your stock photography as reference for a drawing or painting?
A.  Yes!  I love to see my work used for more traditional purposes.

Q.  Can I sell an image I've created using your stock?
A.  If it's through dA prints, you already have my permission.  If you'd like to sell it through another website, put it on merchandise, or sell it personally, you must contact me for permission first.  (And please see the new Rule 4.)

Q.  I'd love to buy one of your stock photos as a print!  Why don't you have prints enabled?
A.  Honestly, if you like one of my raw stock images that much, then download or save the full version of it and print it out yourself.  I won't be offended in the slightest.  I feel silly making free stock photos available as prints that people have to pay for (especially since the profit is so low - dA makes most of the money!).  However, if you'd like to purchase some of my work in an effort to support my artistic habits financially - check out my CafePress store!  www.cafepress.com/fetishfaerie

Q.  I manipulated one of your photos, and sent you a note - but you haven't left a comment.  Did you look at it yet?
A.  I've probably looked at it, but I didn't have the time at that moment to leave a thought-out comment.  I fall behind very quickly on notes and comments here at dA, and I apologize.  If it's been more than three weeks and I've yet to comment, please send me a note again!

Q.  I make stuff, and I'd love for you to model it.  Would you do that and let me use your photos in my advertisements/on my website?
A.  If you want to send me your product and let me keep it, I'd be more than happy to show it off.  Just note me and we'll discuss details.

About Me

I'd like to use this journal entry to feature two artists.. one whom I've never met but greatly respect, and one that I know quite intimately.

:iconhatefueled:
Her skill with oils just blows me away.  The textures, the colors, the expressions... her pieces are just stunning.
She did a series of paintings on the four elements, using photo manipulations she made using my stock.  Please check them out!

She's Air by hatefueled She's water by hatefueled

:iconpsciubba:
Phil is my boyfriend and artistic partner of almost 4 years.  We've given up using the kitchen table to eat on.. it is our art table, and it's layers of plaster and paint and glue are quite impressive.  XD
He just started posting his work here at dA - he has a hard time finishing pieces, so we're hoping that dA will give him the push to complete his projects so he can share them here.
