Using my Stock Rules
The updated stock usage rules for 2017 Since the word use in the below description may be confusing to people who do not have English a first language I will add to this. "I hereby grant all DeviantArtists permission to use my stock in any and all Deviant Prints without restriction." Commercial use of my stock photography is permitted so long as it follows the below points. You are NOT allowed to use my non-stock materials . You may use these images as you see fit except as follows: - None of the images in the collection will EVER be used on a site that has PORNOGRAPHY of any sort, content or advertising. My work is art, not pornography

*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,
-Calendars,
-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 www.kuoma-stock.deviantart.com. 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 jannafantasy@yahoo.com. 
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 jannafantasy@yahoo.com


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  jannafantasy@yahoo.com
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.
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
:star: RULES FOR DIGI TUTORIALS :star:
: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.


__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
:star: RULES FOR TRADITIONAL ARTISTS:star:

: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 jannafantasy@yahoo.com (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.

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?

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)

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! :)

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 :)

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

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 :)

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:
