Am i able to use your stock as backgrounds for a horse sim game? ( my personal self also) Yo u would be fully credited, and I will be editing the stock image. 

Thanks you!

Hi, I don't allow my images to be used in this way. I only allow my images to be used in manipulations, which involve at least two images used in the final image. If you wish to make manipulations you may use them on this site, but simply painting over the image, using it as is, or using simply edits are acceptable. Check out my journal here for more info >>> magikstock.deviantart.com/jour…

Thanks :)

Is it okay if I use your stock in a non-commerical game, made for this site, cloudnovel.net. I'll paint it over, and apply various creative edits. I'll use the stock in the game with the finished results as one of the character. And I might make photo manipulations with the finished results to use in the game, with the other characters. May I use it, or is that too much?

Thank you.

Hi, I don't allow my images to be used in this way. I only allow my images to be used in manipulation, which involve at least two images used in the final image. You may practice airbrushing painting over etc, but they can not be used or posted off deviant art. If you wish to make manipulations you may use them on this site, but simply painting over the image is not acceptable. I also do not allow the images to be posted where you can not give stock credit so please keep that in mind also. Check out my journal here for more info >>> magikstock.deviantart.com/jour…

Thanks :)

If you create an original manipulation using my stock then you may, but I DO NOT allow my images to be used as is, cut out, or tubed on the Howrse site.

Hello! i have a question! can i make oil paintings with references from your stock, and if so, can i place the paintings in a galery and if i can, can i sell them if the chance comes up, what are your conditions on this?

great galery! :)
magikstock's avatar
You can use my images for reference for paintings, and you may sell the original pieces. The only limits I set are on the number of prints that can be sold without royalties :)

Hey I'm teaching an art class to elementary/middle school kids. Is it ok for me to use your stock as photo references for the class? I'm not sure if the class falls under commercial usage or not because I'm charging for it to pay for my college textbooks. Does it?

magikstock's avatar
no it does not count as commercial. You can definitely use it….it would be cool if you could take a picture of the art they make. I want to see!
