About sxc.hu stockGreetings!
A few of you have been really worried lately about using stock from sxc.hu here because of the change in their ownership. Basically, you were concerned that their license says that you cannot redistribute their stock in whole or in part, by itself or combined with other elements, without the written approval of the original photographer.
As we all know by now, creating a photomanipulation is considered "making a derivative image." And we know we can't make premade backgrounds without permission from the photographers, as doing so is redistributing their work.
I advised a couple of you to check with the Help Desk and sxc.hu to find out the whole truth before making rash decisions about your group that could potentially make everyone panic.
Using my own personal account, I wrote to sxc.hu to find out what the story was. Here's what I said:
I was just wondering whether creating pho
Lost in Another World (RESULTS):iconmh1plz::iconmh2plz::iconmh3plz::iconmh4plz::iconmh5plz:
First of all, I wanted to remember you that I selected the winning works for the representation of a CONTRAST between a character and his environment, not for your skills to draw or photomanipulate. So, please, don't feel offended if your beautiful work hadn't be choosen . I tried to select the more creative works in my mind.
I would also tell you that I'm really happy with all these beautiful creations you did ! Many thanks for your participations, I hope you'll try to participate to the next contest .
:iconkawaiistarloveplz: Starlight :iconkawaiistarloveplz:
Certainly the most creative work I've seen for this contest. Two "humanized" stars discovering a luminous town in the night. Excellent idea of contrast, really ! Congratulations

Interview with XilaPhoenixArt1.First, please tell us something about you!
I'm Vicky, a Belgian 38 years old married woman with two dogs that are like children to us. Since over 12 years I can't go work anymore because of my Fibromyalgia, so I have plenty of time to focuss on art. I also love reading fantasy books and watch fantasy movies... did I already mention that I love fantasy? Because my daily reality is often very hard, I search for distraction in different fantasy worlds. I very much enjoy spend time with my hubby: sitting outside, have a drink and so on.
2. When do you discover your passion for art? And what is your motivation making art?
I think I was born with art in my heart. Since very young age I didn't want to do anything else than drawing and painting. I also followed art school wich helped me a lot. As a young adult I made oil painting as a hobby. So the passion for art is a red line through my whole life. Later I found out about Paint Shop Pro and I became a tagger, focussed on a
