Credit "Werandra" in the description/on the image itself, or link to my profile.

Please ENSURE my name is spelled correctly. If it isn't, the credit is invalid and it is a violation of my terms.


  :rose:  If a piece's description specifies to credit the photographer in addition to me, do not neglect this!


ALWAYS credit properly! Failure to do so is theft and a copyright violation, which is a legal crime. 


For images featuring me in my Mermaid Gipsy®  tail (silver with black stripes/spots and rainbow fluke), the name "Mermaid Gipsy" and/or mermaidgipsy.com may be substituted as credit, which is preferable but not mandatory.



 ALWAYS READ IMAGE DESCRIPTIONS BEFORE USE

I allow most of of my images to be borrowed for use as stock in derivative works even if they aren't in the Stock/Resource category, but some have particular rules regarding (or restrictions prohibiting) their usage stated in the description,  so please pay close attention.



:blackrose: Do not use derivatives of my work commercially 
Please contact me to discuss fees and royalties if you're interested in commercial use for anything that's going to be sold in any way: prints, book covers, advertisement, etc

:blackrose: Do not create other stock with my images

:blackrose: Do not use my images in any vulgar/derogatory art, or pornographic/fetish themed work (vore, inflation, tickling, etc)


:rose: Do not repost or redistribute my non-public work without permission  
Non-public refers to any images, videos, or media not currently displayed in my public galleries or anything paid to access (full shoots, stock packs, invite only archives, etc.). Compilation preview images do not count as public displayYou may post derivatives containing non-public images used as stock within the art piece, just not the original images themselves



If you would like to repost my public images to social media pages, blogs, etc, you must obey all other terms of use (especially credit!) and:

:blackrose: Double check image descriptions: Some specify to also credit photographer when reposting, others don't allow reposting at all without permission

:blackrose: You may NOT remove or crop out any of my text watermarks

:blackrose: You may not add your own watermark to my work

:blackrose: You may not repost my work to portfolio type sites where it's implied it is your own (Deviantart, Flikr, etc) without permission, or otherwise claim or imply my work belongs to you







MINOR/UNDERAGE NOTE:

If a description has text that specifies "young model" or "young assistant model" I am a minor in the image or a minor is present in the image, and thus derivatives may not involve nudity or sexual/fetish themes of any kind.




Important notes regarding Mermaid Gipsy® images



🧜‍♀️  Images made containing my Mermaid Gipsy® tail (silver with black stripes/spots and rainbow fluke) may NOT contain any form of nudity or violence as the copyrighted design of this tail is directly tied to my child friendly performance persona/"mersona". 

🧜‍♀️ Do NOT replace my own head/face on images with my Mermaid Gipsy® tail (silver with black stripes/spots and rainbow fluke), and do not use only the tail itself. When using these images for reference, using the tail colour/pattern design on characters other than Mermaid Gipsy® is also forbidden. This tail design is federally copyrighted as a character design for my own persona/"mersona".




By using my images you automatically agree to my terms.  If terms are violated, I reserve the right have the piece(s)/posts/etc containing my work to be removed and/or the author persecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  My work, including what I allow others to use as stock, is NOT public domain and usage is subject to my terms. I like to share, but retain all legal rights to my work. Terms are subject to change without notice.


If you have any questions or usage permission requests, please feel free to ask.

Hi there, QueenWerandra! :)

I've got two questions, if I may? (for future knowledge) ... Is it ever allowed that we may use only the clothing part of one of your images; while meshing the body, hair, or face of another of your images? (say, if the angle might be wrong in one or more of said images? )

Is it ever okay to use any of the above mentioned of your images, but on a different stock person's model account (if they don't object in their terms of service as well? )

Good morning, Linda! :)

To answer your first question: Yes, this absolutely permitted if it's my own images, as long as there are no other conflicts of the Terms of Use. Specifically, regarding use of photos where I am underage combined with current photos where I am nude, as this can get tricky from a legal perspective. I'm not worried about this from you of course, but anybody can see this public comment so I have to cover all the bases.

To answer your second question: This is permitted, with the exception of Mermaid Gipsy's signature silicone tail as highlighted in the Terms of Use. Outside of Mermaid Gipsy images, while of I strongly prefer to not have my entire body with the only change being another model's head/face pasted on, it isn't against the rules.

Thank you for double checking, a gracious artist is always appreciate :hug:

Thank you QueenWerandra, for such a prompt response! :)  And I must say, I am pleasantly surprised you allow this. :)!!  I Do understand, regarding the "underage photos' issue. And you are correct, I did read your entire journal so I understand fully and can't agree more.  I am glad you pointed it out again though, in brief, here in your reply to me, and because so many people won't read your journal in full, I would suggest, if I may, you 'feature' your own reply to me as an attention catcher.  (people Always wonder "ooooh, what's so special that it got a feature"?  And they read it.  It appeals to the 'newsy' in them. lol

I am doubly, pleasantly surprised, you allow meshing of other stocks with yours! :)!! This is most generous! Most!  However, instinctively, I'd not replace any models face with another's...that just seems very wrong to me, somehow; but I do think along lines of using the clothing, or hands, arms, feet, etc on another model; if the pose is spot on.
And in the case of yourself, you are naturally angelic; and I love angels, and also creating fantasy artworks. This is my passion.
 
Again, thanks So much for getting back to me so quickly!  You are a Heart, in every way!  Thank you for sharing your beautiful stock work with us all. I am deeply grateful. Take care, and have a lovely Sunday. :heart:!! :hug:!!

You're very welcome! As a stock provider, I always appreciate when artists take the time to clarify rules (even just double checking) rather than assuming and causing a potential issue later. Thank you for being gracious with permission use! :)

That's a great idea, I will feature this comment. Thank you also for the kind compliments, and I hope to see more of your work soon :hug: Take care!

Hello, may I ask a question?
Is traditional art also concerned by your commercial use rules, or is different?

Hi, I have a short question:
Can I use your stock as a refrecnce for pixel dolls? like a finished artwork and NOT a base?

I ask because pixel work is usually that much smaller, and I am not sure if you are okay with you stock being used as a refrence...

Hi! :) Oh goodness your owl icon is cute, btw. :heart:

As long as it's not a making a base for others to use, yes, they may be used to make pixel work as long as proper credit is given according to my terms (reference photo by and if applicable photographer). You seem to be good with rules and credits, and as a stock artist I appreciate you asking before doing just to be safe. 

Have a great day!

"images of me submitted before August 13th, 2015"

Just wanted to point out this is NOT my birthday, but the day that I finally managed to finish uploading all of the images in which I was a minor. 

My birthday is actually June 9th, if you're curious.  :)

Thank you for providing such awesome work. Read your journal entry about your image usage and gallery redesign, I had thought before that some of the images were really good to be stock also.

You're very welcome! Thank you for the kind words. :heart: I'm in the midst of the gallery re-design, and hopefully it will be finished in a few days. All while I'm still trying to upload the hundreds of pictures taken by Lindsay from June. Have a great day! :hug:
