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.

Stock & Resources Terms of Use

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
