:bulletred: Don't use my stock for extemely offensive images.
If you want to make a link back and don't know how, check out FAQ #81.
Thanks. :icontardemoteplz:

:iconwuvplz: Maybe ONE RULE: You must have fun. I do.
When I posted most of my stock I asked for a link, credit, the usual. But since then I've been making photo manipulation art much more and I realized it can be kind of a pain. You don't have to do that. Just don't claim something you didn't do as your own. It injures your own integrity. And it makes you the turd in the pool. Yep, it is that offensive to the rest of us swimming around.

It is helpful to share links. That is how I've found some of the best stock. It brings more awareness of the talent of the artist who uses them, and the creative person who saw possibilities in something around them, or took the time to design and share them.

If you visit my journals here in paintress eye, I used them mostly to feature stock providers, great artists in their own right. And of course artists who found interesting uses for what I've called my stock.

:iconholdheartplz:I'm not around here as much these days ~ but I still keep FOUR dA accounts going. I share my life in words on :iconhishearttomine: = HisHeartToMine...mainly for keeping my own journaling where I can find it. That is, on my laptop. Does anyone else lose things like I do? I can't keep track of one pretty journal at a time. There is no continuity in my handwritten journals as I usually have about half a dozen of those going at one time. If you read this far you may notice I have a touch of A.D.D. A curse and a blessing.

:bulletred: :iconpreciousplz::bulletred: You are also most welcome to visit me at my traditional art account.
I am also... "melanierogers" = :iconmelanierogers: Eyes are my thing there too. Unlike my icons, mostly two at a time, over there. ;)

I am a full time free lance artist. :painter: Commissioned portraits of dogs and people, plus art for covers [book, CD, etc] and over the past ten years a ton *literally* aLmoSt of gallery art. I specialize in watercolor which has to be framed with glass so it does get to be weighty to do exhibits. :gallery:

Through dA :devart: I discovered Ball Jointed Dolls and currently they are my main obsession. Generally I use my bjd account for when I want to trade or sell a doll or doll item. And to store thousands of doll specific favorites. I may give that account a more artistic/photographic slant in the not too distant future. I seriously need a better camera though. I burned out the little one I used to take most of these pictures. :camera:
There I am: :icondaughterofeden: = DaughterofEden [DoE]
...which is my ID in Den of ANgelS if you look for me there.
And yeah, I don't sleep much.

My Stock Rules

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 25, 2011, 9:39 AM

My rules are simple: :reading:

:iconwhiteroseplz: Write "paintresseye" and post my icon for anything in deviantArt ~ in your artist comments = CREDIT MY NAME :bulletred: for icon, :icon paintresseye : [no spaces]

:iconwhiteroseplz: Give a LINK BACK to the exact deviation.

Leave your link ON THE :pointr: STOCK PAGE :bulletred: please.  That works nicely.  If used outside of dA you can still create a link back here.  Please respect the effort it takes to create and maintain a stock resource gallery.  Stay organized and take the time to do at least that much.

REMEMBER --> :gallery: People browsing my gallery may want to take a look at what you did with it.  It will help me know too, as some photo manipulations have a lot of texture
and it can be difficult
to see what came from where. :deviation: I want to be able to
FAVE your work.

:iconwhiteroseplz:  COMMERCIAL use and PRINTS are OK. :bulletred:  It is your art, as long as you don't redistribute as stock, enter in a photography category, etc, etc.  It's easy, as long as you stop and think about how you would feel if it was your stock.

:iconwhiteroseplz:  You may use for PRE-MADE BACKGROUNDS :bulletred: as long as you give proper credit.  Thanks.

:iconwhiteroseplz::heart: Oh, and no vicious art. If in question about the meaning of that, note me. I'm always around dA somewhere.

I hope you will find things :iconcardinalplz:
in my gallery that you are looking for,

:iconmagpieplz::star: or even discover something that
:icondivider1plz::icondivider2plz: ...sparks a creative idea you weren't looking for.
