Utterly re working the sections/layout to account for the upcoming Creative Commons Stock :D
Still working on it so more tonight.

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING!!!!


How to use theses rules: 

Each of my stock "types" has a list of what section(s) of my rules apply.
Find the right type for the stock image in question, read those sections and any exceptions or exclusions for that type. 

If you still have questions then ASK ME.

Before you start though, What is stock and what is not?

ONLY the work in the "STOCK" folders and all the sub folders in that directory may be used as stock, do NOT use my other work as stock.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Modern Uses are not: Scientology or any modern active sects/flyers or material related to or advertising any one church/house of worship that is an active institution).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4.Restricted Stock.

Restrictied stock is that in the "Restricted Stock" folder, anything in this folder is stock taken at exhibitions or events/places wherethe copyright owner/organisers have strict rules on the use of the prographs taken.

Nothing in this folder can be used for commercial work by you Or ME, and some images may have special or even further restrictions so READ the rules
for EACH IMAGE first.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5.Distribution/Sharing.

If the stock image has the sharing options enabled then share/pin/tweet away, if not then DON'T.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6.The Right To Remove My Stock From Your Work

If ALL my rules are not followed I reserve the right to have you remove my stock from your work/remove the work completely.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Commercial/Print/Commission Use


Commercial use counts as any work for gain be it paid/points or contests with sizable prizes.

The bottom line is if you are looking to make money using my stock, then we NEED to talk first.

All fees from commercial are put back into helping fund more equipment, props/clothing etc.

Individual Commercial Use.
For smaller or one piece commercial/commission uses I charge a small fee of a few £.

OR

Blanket Fee.
The alternative for heavier use of my stock is the blanket fee of £20. (Currently works out at less than 1.5 pence per image).
This covers the use of my stock past/present and future in any commercial/commission work (With restrictions, See Below).

The above is intended for people creating art for individuals or clients where the end result is sold to them as is:
Posters.
Fan Art.
Custom Characters etc.
If The Work Is Digital/E-Book/Digital download album etc.. Commercial use IS ALLOWED under the Blanket/Individual Fee, I just ask for notification first.

Restrictions (Regarding work for a Client/3rd Party to re-sell).

Restrictions apply to the intended resale of work created from my stock (I.E Album art/Book Covers).

If the work created to be used in physical print/hard copy or on/in something the 3rd party intends to sell on I need to be consulted
mostly for to agree on the subject matter, crediting and usage, at most a small additional fee if it's a large volume/use.

This applies to things like
Book Covers
Album Art
Artwork For Campaigns/Organisations
Designs For Merchandise
T-Shirt Designs
Etc.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Requests


I take commissions for pose stock (Or basic every day clothing/Props please ask first).

To clarify what "Exclusive" means in the below, any images not exclusive will at some point go up on DA 
after the requester has had adequate time to use them.

1-9 Images (A Pack) £5
1-9 Images Exclusive (A Pack) (I.E. They will not go up on DA they will be for you only). £8

Exclusive packs are automatically cleared for commercial/Commission use by the person who commissioned me,
But still have to follow my rules and restrictions.


:D Go nuts!!

Hi, I have no issues with this at all.
All I would ask is as you say, the credit, back to my main DA page and the specific image if you like
and to be notified so I can see it :D

Ad provided all the rest is in keeping with my rules on content/no dolls/bases/commercial use without payment of the fee etc...yeah go nuts :D

can i use your stock for cheap commissions? i only need it to reference/sample small details, not the whole image, and u likely wont be able to tell i even used your stock

If you use my stock for commissions I would ask a small fee to do so, normally £2-5.
Simple question I ask you to ask yourself is, "Did this stock help with my piece?", If so then I would consider it having been used and my rules applying however it's a matter of honesty on your part :)
If you want to discuss further do send me a note :)

Good day! I'm interested in using the photos as reference to help me draw, but I don't plan on posting anything. Would these rules apply then? Also, if I were to use a pose for an art assignment, would that also be all right? Again, I don't plan on posting it, but if finished (with your approval), can I send it to you?

Hi, Thanks for asking.
Posting or not posting I ask you keep to my rules where possible (so I am kindly asking not to make hate/fetish, not use for commercial purposes without talking to me first etc and perhaps give credit is required on your work if you can) but lets be honest how would I ever know if you were not to ever post or tell me :P so yeah, go ahead use them, but keep that in mind if you ever plan to show me XD

Ah, I can do that, yes! I can't actually edit tweets, so would it be alright if I add another tweet to the thread with a link to your main page?
If that's not acceptable, I suppose I could also delete it and retweet.
Sorry about that!

Hi there! I was wondering if it might be okay for me to include some of the drawings that I have done using your stock in a portfolio for my school. I'm an art student and every year they give us the opportunity for a little bit of scholarship if we submit an application and portfolio for them to look at. I was thinking of using these drawings in my portfolio--> Layer Practice 2 by NowinZee Layering Practice 1 by NowinZee but if that's not okay with you that's fine too, just thought I would ask to make sure. Thanks again! ^^
