For the love of stock, don't do it!
I've written countless comments and notes concerning these topics, so I figured - let's make an article to raise awareness (once again). All this has been spoken of before and will be spoken of again and again. Please heed.
:heart: Stockers, do not take images from or any other resource site for that matter, manipulate them and offer them as stock. That is not allowed!
Quoting Image License of -
Artists - don't use these "stock images", don't encourage those who have willingly or unwillingly done wrong. Instead, tell them they're not supposed to do that.
It does not matter if they credit the artists or not - unless they have written permission, they're not allowed. Period.
Stockers - please, don't steal. Pretty please. If you have such images, please, remove them.
:heart: Stockers, don't take other stock images from DA, mix them to

Delicious stock picks by Mithgariel, VI
Rainy greetings from Estonia! :wave:
If you've got snow there, would you mind sending some over here, too?
Last week was terribly busy and besides doing everything else I, too, submitted a lot of new stock. Wanna see? Take a peek at :iconmithgariel-stock:
The fight against images getting made into stock here on DA is ever on - join the ranks, read the article, remind folks and if they don't listen, report them. Cruel? Dunno. Fair? Hell yes.
Holidays are here and methinks the stock picks from last week show it somewhat :rudolph:
But first - Rick has done it again - he's used one of the picks and come up with something cool:

Want to be featured, too? All it takes is to use any of the pics I've featured and provide me with both links to the stock image and your artwork.
But now - the heroes of last week, hard pick amongst the big package of goodies out there:

YOU MAY USE MY STOCK ON ANY WEBSITE YOU WANT WITHOUT ASKING ME FIRST! Also mobile apps if you're going to apply the texture as an effect to a photo or whatever. No need to ask even if you're getting paid. Just credit this page.
All I ask is notification, and credit if that's possible. For full rules see here: Stock Rules
I don't check this account that often, so I may miss it if you ask me for permission when you don't need to. You are also allowed to use my stock in the real world for whatever you'd like too, if you can show me a copy I appreciate it :heart:

Premium Content

Tue Jul 10, 2012, 4:38 PM
I am so excited that dA has enabled us to sell premium content right here on dA. I have uploaded my first premium content background:
The Tower and the Sea Background by joannastar-stock

I want to reassure you that I will continue to produce free stock and resources; I have no plans to make anything in my existing gallery into premium content and I anticipate that most things I make in the future will be free.

However, even though up until now all my stock has been free to you to use, it hasn't been free to me to make. It takes time, petrol money, a good camera, a willing husband - all sorts of things. This is why some of my future content will be paid for.

Thank you for all the stock uses and support I've got over the years. I do this for love and I'm honoured when people choose my resources for their art. ♥

Don't Forget...

I want you to use my stock! Don't wait to ask my permission first! ;P

On dA you must give me a link to where you used it so I can check it out :) For usage off dA, please link me if possible, but if you used it on a private msn group or something, this is not necessary.

However, you must a) tell me, b) put in your rules for that stock that I should be credited too, and c) put in your rules for that stock that I must be notified too.

Hello, I just want to inform you that I will be using one of your Elasmosaurus images for my powerpoint presentation in a college lab (Geology- we are covering dinosaurs). I will make sure you are cited, too. Thank you for creating fantastic images, and for allowing them to be free for use (within reason, of course!). Have a nice day~!!! :D

​Hi Joanna,

I wanted to send you some images from the West Hartford Children's Museum's Dinosaurs exhibit that just opened. I got to visit it after it opened, and the children seem to love the game with your illustration is in the most! 
Thanks a lot for your image of the Elasmosaurus!

I used a background of yours here! They were all so wonderful. <3 While I can draw figures and things on their own well I can't do backgrounds to save my life. Although this particular work was just a photo manip not anything drawn.…
