My Bio

I'm a process engineer who loves to create photomanips in her free time. I love to share resources & stock images and I especially LOVE to see what you folks do with them :love: I also write / record tutorials which can be found here as well as on youtube.

I also share special extras, stock you will not see on here, on my website artofkuschelirmel.de

My art account can be found at kuschelirmel.

I don't have many rules when it comes to the usage, but I have a few and I expect you to take the time to read them if you download and use my stock. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me via note.

Tools of the Trade

  • Nikon D90 + D7200 with the following lenses: 18-105 mm, 70-300 mm, 50 mm, 105 mm Macro, 10-24 mm wide angle lense
  • Photoshop CS5 Extended
  • Coffee & Chocolate!


Stock & Resouces RULES for use


  • ...give credit (with a link back here)
  • ...show me what you've created (via note or comment)


  • ...redistribute my stock/brushes as it is (no repacks either!) - link people here instead -- my stock is not to be redistributed as part of tutorials packages!!!
  • ...create stock from my stock (incl. brushes, premade backgrounds)
  • ...upload your manips of my stock to the photography section - you did not take the picture, I did!


  • ...use my stock for commercial use, incl. prints, book/cd covers, commissions etc - but excluding stock premades (for sale or otherwise)! AS LONG AS YOU do more than minor adjustments (change colors, use filters, remove phone lines) - i.e. if it's your art you're selling, I'm perfectly fine - if you're trying to sell my photos, I'm not.
  • ...use my stock to practice retouching/overpainting (i.e. minor adjustments, not full manips) as long as you keep to the rules above and upload to an appropriate category, for example Digital Art > Miscellaneous or your Scraps - NOT anywhere in Photography (you did not take the picture after all)! You are not allowed to sell retouches!
  • ...use my stock for reference in traditional art.
  • ...use my stock to illustrate webzines/news articles
  • ...create website layouts or dA journal layouts
  • ...use my stock in all kinds of personal projects
  • ...use my stock off dA (incl. ponybox, forums, etc)

But most of all, have fun & show me <3

A long version of my stock rules can be found here, explaining with examples: FULL Terms of Use!

New Website + Instagram I've recently started my own website with a blog attached to it where everything I do will kinda come together: from my photography to my advanced edits and photomanips to stock (blog posts with stock usually link here, BUT there is a little extra available each time) and of course tutorials. I plan on coming back to doing video tutorials, too. I already got some new audio gear and hopefully that'll take care of my noise problem ^^; Won't take care of my time problem, but hey ;) If you have something you'd like to see me ramble on about, feel free to suggest! artofkuschelirmel.de Aaaand I have started posting to i
