Hello! I was wondering if I could use this image for a custom personal credit card like this. The image would be used non-commercially and it would provide no commercial benefits or monetary gain.

Looks pretty cool Cannonlake, if it's for private usage I really do not mind at all and would love to see the actual card when you receive it!

Don't forget that I remade this background in 4K:  Retrowave Neon 80's Background - 4K by Rafael-De-Jongh

And also revamped it a bit later: 
Synthwave - Neon 80s - Background - Render Revamp by Rafael-De-Jongh

Either way go ahead and get back to me with the final card once you've got it into your possession!

Can I use it for a non-profit Vocaloid cover of an 80's song that I'm remasterizing? Credits will be given of course

I assume the cover would be required to altered/modified to fit the song? Or how would you actually utilise this background as a cover?
I sure am interested about the song itself though as I do like Vocaloid a lot well!

Keep me posted ;)

I'd just put the character on the left side and keep the background intact

Sadly this would go against my copyright licences being the part of NoDerivatives  so can't really allow it sadly enough. 

Best of luck with your YouTube channel though!

How would you use it to be honest? Just making sure as for example in my school if we used anything from the internet it would be seen a plagiarism and therefore would result in a 0/20 on the whole course. So be wary of that as well as it isn't allowed to publicly derivative it and distribute it, as it is a school project I'm sure more people will have a look at it and therefore would be considered an infringement on my copyright. And at the end of all these questions how are you going to attribute me for a school project?

So yea more information is required before I can really provide you with a proper permission for you to use it! In general however I wish you the best with your school project!

Will the game ever be publicly distributed outside the school assignment? If so then no, however if it's purely for personal usage of a game you're making with proper attribution (placed somewhere in a humans.txt or similar) then I guess that would be fine. In general if you're making the game for private usage with the background no problem, but once it is altered or re-distributed without proper attribution then that may cause some legal problems.

Either way make sure to check out my other versions as well, as this is my original version which is rather on the low quality side so my updated 4K of revamed 4K version might be better!

Thank you for your explanations.

I guess it's for private usage, only my class mates and two teachers will see it to give a mark for the project.

I will only use it as a background, the theme of the game is Retrowave 80's.

If it's private use like that with proper attribution and never will be publicly available, then sure go ahead.

As long as it for private use, meaning you can't put it online once it is modified hence the NoDerivatives and for non Commercial purposes then it should be fine ;)

Thanks for asking and best of luck with your presentation!

Good news everyone, I've recreated this background in 4K (3840x2160 @ 300DPI) while it is of course slightly different than this version, I did try to keep it as true to the original as possible!

Sadly this is the highest version available as in the time that I made it, the only purpose was for being a Full HD background cover, and not really intended for any printing purposes.

However I'm currently working on another scene that might get a higher resolution render in the end ;)

Here's a sneak peak:
