I sent this note to your old account, joshcartledge and to your new account, Influx675 in august 2013, but haven't been able to reach you yet. I am hoping that submitting on this page I might connect with you.
I am authoring and illustrating a book in the fantasy genre along the lines of The Hobbit and Chronicles of Narnia. I would like to use your brush set:
Shown in Old Account: Smoke Flow Brushjoshcartledge.deviantart.com/a…
Shown in New Account: Smoke Flow Iinflux675.deviantart.com/art/S…
This set is exactly what I have been looking for to accomplish certain fantasy effects. For example, I would like to use your brushes for a flowing robe on one of one of the fantasy beings I am drawing. I might also want to use them for smoke effects in one or two other illustrations.
Because the art is book illustrations, I wouldn't be able to credit you as the creator of the brushes on the book pages or within the illustration; however, I could give credit to you by name and URL on a credits page in the book. I could also email you the art or post the art on my deviant page and fav/link to your page.
Since your text file indicates the brushes are to be used for non-commercial purposes only, I’m requesting your approval for this work.
Please let me know if I may use your brush set and if the credit recognition I have proposed in this email is acceptable to you.
Thank you so much in advance for your time and feedback.
