*EDIT ( 23/03/2018)  added rules for :star: TRADITIONAL ARTISTS:star:  BELOW AT THE END OF THE JOURNAL ENTRY!

Since I get many questions about commercial use and not always manage to answer in time I decided make things easier and post and addition to my stock rules.

This new structure comes into effect from  Saturday, 20th of October 2012.
All that has been discussed up to this date is not applicable to these conditions.

Commercial products you can use my stock  images for:
-Magazine covers,
-Album covers,
-Book covers
-CD covers
-Merchandise such as t-shirts, mugs, puzzles and such.
-Art prints

General stock rules:
:bulletorange: Credit me as model\photographer, provide a link to my page I know it is not always possible to post a link in this case I want that you mention my name Janna Prosvirina as model\stock provider
:bulletorange: Let me know about the project and send information about at e-mail 
You can also use DA note BUT I would prefer you use e-mail, you also have higher chances that I read your message soon.
:bulletorange: Do not use my stock to produce anything fetish, hate, morbid, profane or pornographic I will ask you to remove your "artwork" if you do anything like this.

:star:You can use my stock images commercially under following conditions.:star:
:bulletorange: Follow my general rules
:bulletorange: Credit me as stock provider\model
:bulletorange: Donate towards my Stock Fund by sending money via PayPal to my address

Why do you need to donate and how much?

I set  the minimum donation at $10USD.

If you want to use more images from my gallery for commercial projects the rates are following:
2-4images  $25 USD
5-9 images $ 50 USD
10 + or more images $75 USD

How to donate?
PayPal ->send money option->type my e-mail
All the donators will get a constant feature in my journal.
Just mention your DA name in PayPal comment box.

Alternative /options:
:bulletgreen: There is an option of sending me the commercial product you used my stock for instead of making a donation.  You can send me a copy of a magazine, book, calendar, art print anything you did using my stock image which I can hold in hands and show to my people. In this case you don't need to donate to my stock fund, and you can use my images free of charge.
:bulletgreen: Option two: you can pay with DA points which I will use to buy DA subscription. The amount of points should be equal to USD which you would pay in USD dollars for my images. 1 USD = 80 points
1 image = 800 DA points

Rules for prints.
:bulletgreen:Selling prints at DA is  OK and it is free.
:bulletgreen: Yes, you can use my stock in the tutorials and upload them to internet. Credit me as usual and provide the link to my page.
:bulletgreen: If your tutorials are free, we have no problem, however, if you sell your tutorials, my commercial rules are applied.
:bulletgreen: If you want to enter a competition with your tutorial and you do not know if you would  win money or not... => easy, if you win, please share. How much? Depending on what you won, just try to be fair, in most cases it works.
:bulletgreen: I want to upload my tutorial on **** any channel is okay if you follow my general rules above.

:star:RULES FOR TROLLS:star:
:bulletgreen: Disappear in thin air right away.
:bulletgreen: Don't bother repeating yourself, it won't help.
:bulletgreen: Continue calling me fat as long as possible, it might make you happy.
:bulletgreen: Don't try to come here under a new name => you will be reported and blocked again.
:bulletgreen: Remember:  NO matter why you are a troll right now, you can always get to normal, if not a chronical condition of course.
:bulletgreen: The world will love you more if you are not a troll.


:bulletgreen: You work traditionally and you only use my images for a pose reference => no problem at all, no need to credit. No donations required.
I would gladly hear a thank you from you, though. Not necessary of course, I understand many do not bother doing things like this in the modern times.
:bulletgreen:You work traditionally, you finished a piece and one can recognize the model \stock image you used => please credit me, let me know in a message at (Or ANY social media I am active at) Send me the link to your work.
I assure you, I do not bite, probably I will be thirilled, because I LOVE seing my stock used in your traditional artwork.
:bulletgreen:If you sold your traditional artwork based on my stock. That is making profit and I am involved. Of course, I am still thrilled that I inspired you but I would like you to send me a  small print as a thank you for my part. Really 4x6 art print would work ( but you are welcome to send a large print if you would like to, of course). You need to ask me for my address, I won't share it buplicaly.
Alternatively, you can send me money via PayPal. How much?...
I don't know how you price your work, that is up to you. I won't ask for a percentage or fixed fee, let your common sense guide you instead.
For those who would like an example: a painter who sold his work for $400 USD sent me $50 USD as a thank you. Another one sold her piece for $250 USD and I've got $20 USD from her. It is not be a rule, though.
:bulletgreen: Prints, calendars, magnets, stamps, merchandise , anything under 100 copies is okay. If you would like to send me a print or another product, you are welcome to do so but it is not a must.
:bulletgreen: If you only use print on demind sites like Zazzle or Seciety6 it is okay. No problem at all. No need to credit me there either.
:bulletgreen: If you are an art STUDENT\Teacher and you want to use my stock for educative purposes only => please do! I do not take money from students:)
:bulletgreen: You want to post your work on Socila media => connect with me! I love seing the progress and I will probably follow you.
You can find all my social media links at the end of this post.
Anything I have forgotten?  Ask me!
I am a traditional artist myself and I can relate, I can understand a lot.
Just remember,  I am in the same boat and I also have bills to be paid and dreams to be chased. Talk to me if anything is not clear.

Can we use your stock for premade book covers, and if it is chosen by an author of course I'll get you a physical copy!
mostly-blue Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
if i only use very small parts of your stock , so small that you likely wont be able to tell your stock was even used, do you still require donation or credit?
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
No, there is no need to do so. You can credit me to help my stock to gain more views (I would appreciate you doing this but it is not a must). Enjoy your creative jorney <3 x Janna

Hello, Question. If I use your stock photo's for an ebook cover, I plan to sell on Amazon and I may offer paperback through Amazon as well. Other than sending you a copy of the finished work and giving you the credit you deserve, what other things or fees do I need to send? 
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
A copy of your product and credit would be enough. Thank you!
ImaraOfNeona Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2017
Hi!! I'm a college student and I really don't have the money to pay for the use of your model stock. Would it be alright I paid you once the product sells?? If I had the money I would pay you immediately but I can't even though I want to, and I really don't want to ask my parents to donate because we're sort of going through a monetary crisis at the moment.:( (Sad) 
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
I don't take money from students. Enjoy your creative jorney.
ImaraOfNeona Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2018
Thank you so much Huggle!

Hi there! :) Just want to know: if we create premade book covers with your stock, can we pay the fee once the product is sold? Of do we have to send you the money by the time the product is online for sale? Thank you sooooo much! Great work! :)
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
That works.
QueenObscurePairings Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2015  Professional General Artist
So couldn't use them for anthro refs?
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
You can.

Oh great thanks! <3

Hi is it ok if I use your models for things like this?…
hippihoney Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2015  Student General Artist
If I use your pictures as a model for drawings is that alright? It's not commercial or anything.
ChezCLM Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2015
thank you for your work i'm very new in DV and big fan already ;)
Nameda Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2014  Professional General Artist
hy there would it be ok to donate as soon as I actually start earning?
Up to now I only sold postcard sized prints, (earnings 10 cents :p)
but I don't want to be restricted in case someone actually wants to buy.
I am honest, should I start earning big time where your stock is involved, I would pay a fair amount :)
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
I am sorry for the late reply. If you sell small amonts and at selling sites like Deviantart, Zazzle, Redbubble and such where you get only royalties from sales you DO NOT need to donate anything to me.  Once rish and famous you can come to me and say thanks but please don't worry now I understand, I won't bite you for this'commercial' use where you hardy get enough to cover costs involved in creating your artwork:)  Good luck and high sales <3
sadistic-virile Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2015
I was wondering about it too so thanks!

You're photography is amazing and has caught my eye. I am an author, and I design my own book covers. I live in the states, but would be willing to send a copy of the published book I may use your artwork on. Is this acceptable? I can give you credit toward the design of the cover in the book, as well as your site link (my books sell for Kindle Fire as well as paperback). If the cover helps to sell more books, I will be willing to return again and again, and add donations to your account. I will of course post a link to you on the finished design for approval. I write in the horror genre, but nothing grotesque...mostly supernatural and strange unexplainable occurences. Let me know if this is acceptable please :)
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I sent you a note:-)
ArunaWolf Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I have question - me and my friend have plans to do artbook with our works, and if I would use some of Your stock photos as pose reference what You would want me to do in return ? Ofc You will be credited there :)
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Sorry for the late reply I have a mess in my comments( this is why I prefer notes lol)^^;

If you want to use the work based on my stock commercially, I would like to get a copy of the product or a signed print of your work based on my stock. A usual small photo print would be ok=)
If you make the book just for your pleasure ( not commercial project) you should have fun = nothing in return:XD:
ArunaWolf Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well we plan to sell this sketchbook on conventions (we hope someone will buy it xDD) so I will send You one copy when we will end it...thus we didn't do any progress by last year ^^;
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner May 16, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
OK, agreed:XD:
jaime-art Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's great that you're stating your rules that clearly. Just one thing: there is a typing mistake with the date, namely "Saturday, 20th of October 1012" instead of 2012.
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
oh... ^^; Thank you for letting me know:D
everfae Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012
Nice! :) Does commercial products cover commissions too? Just checking ^^
Kuoma-stock Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
well, it depends on what you are to do with the final work. If you send your commissioned work you did based on my stock to the customer and got payed for it once it is all fine, you don't need to pay for the use of my stock (you can still do a symbolic small donation if you want but you don't need to). if you about to sell prints using this image later, I want to get one small print signed by you please, it would be a great addition to my collection(small by now):XD:
everfae Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
Thanks for clearing that up! I don't plan to do commissions or even prints any time soon, i just wanted to hear your terms on it, just incase I ever do use your stock in a commission. Thank you! :love:
I hope your collection continues to grow!
