Terms of Use

Thu Mar 29, 2007, 6:35 PM
Commercial licenses, for those of you that can't/don't want to credit are here: www.obsidiandawn.com/commercia…

I don't keep up with notes on dA very well. If you need to contact me to ask for clarification, please do so at my website.

* These brushes can be used for prints. You don't need to note me and ask.

 If you use one of my brushes/stock, please credit me somewhere.  If you use it here on dA, feel free to credit me as redheadstock.  However, if you use my stuff anywhere else, you must credit me as Obsidian Dawn (www.obsidiandawn.com).

 If you can't credit me, you'll need to purchase a commercial license for just $3.  Information on commercial licenses can be found here

Please do not re-package any of the brushes contained in any of the sets and attempt to pass them off as your own! As these brushes now work in the latest versions of GIMP, I am no longer allowing them to be converted.  Those that are up don't have to take them down, but please don't convert them anymore.

Providing credit:

* Provide credit to me somewhere.  If used here on dA, feel free to credit me as redheadstock.  If you use them anywhere else, however, you must credit me either as “Obsidian Dawn” or www.obsidiandawn.com

 * If you use these brushes or patterns, you must be able to credit me alongside their usage anywhere they are displayed.  If you cannot do that, you may purchase a commercial license.

 * That’s it! Enjoy!

Webmasters:

 * You MAY post information about my resources on your websites without needing to contact me for permission.

 * You may NOT host my files on your server or link to my files directly. You MUST send the user to the resource on obsidiandawn.com for the download. Again, you can do this without needing to contact me for permission. If you are looking to host the files themselves, special permissions are given for this - contact us.

Where should I put information about how I used brushes from you? Just in the description of the graphics?

So the rules say that it is okay to use the brushes as long as I credit you somewhere, say, in the artist description? 

I don't have any clue on how to credit on the image itself

You can't use these in tags that you will be distributing to others without buying a license.

The reason for that is that wherever they're used without a license, you need to display credit to my website, ObsidianDawn.com. You can't very well ask the people you distribute them to to credit me everywhere. You could put credit ON the tag itself, if possible. Otherwise, you'd need a license. You can read about them here: www.obsidiandawn.com/commercia…

You can of course change the color of them, as Photoshop brushes, that's kinda what they're made for. :)

It is okay to convert these into bitmaps for Firealpaca? And can we use your brush packs to design adopts or use them as backgrounds for adopts?

:iconredheadstock:
redheadstock Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2017  Professional General Artist
You can convert them to whatever you need to do in order to use them. You can't redistribute them in any form, though. So as long as you're adding them to your own design, etc. then you're fine. 

Once you've done so, you'll need to either credit me or purchase a license for them. You can read my full terms of use and info on licenses on my website: www.obsidiandawn.com

Been a while since you wrote this, so it may no longer be applicable. But yes, you can use them for that as long as you credit me anywhere the advertisement is shown. You're probably better off to buy a license for them for that use, though. You can't really credit me everywhere the advertisement is shown without looking a tad unprofessional. That's what my licenses are for, and they're only $3. You can get them on my website : www.obsidiandawn.com

For things like book covers, is a "Gem brushes by redheadstock at deviantart" or similar line on the copyright page ok? Since you obviously can't put the credit line on the cover itself.

Great brushes i found them very nice for some personal arts i m doing. I was wondering about the use of the brushes for creating items in second life... Is it ok to credit in the marketplace page of the item you used the brushes? (have seen some people doing with these brushes, but i am asking just to be sure :D )

also for using the brushes for creating a model for a game (web-games, android), is sufficient to credit you in the Credits section inside the game?

:iconredheadstock:
redheadstock Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2017  Professional General Artist
You can use them in Second Life, but make sure you're adding them to a design or something and not just using them in some way "as is". As for credit, you can do it wherever you think it'll be most obvious and alongside them wherever they're shown. I also have licenses for only $3 and then you don't have to credit me at all. www.obsidiandawn.com

You can use it, but you need to credit my website for it anywhere that you use it. You could just put it right on the image itself, or somewhere nearby, on the same page.

Credit should go to www.obsidiandawn.com. Thanks!

Is it okay if i add the brushes to the favourites folder "brushes i use" on my DA profile and, under the work i do, i put a link to that folder? Or do i necessarily need to put the link directly to the brush set?
Reply
:iconredheadstock:
redheadstock Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2017  Professional General Artist
Hmm, I'm not sure I'm following what you're asking, sorry.

You can add them to your favorites, but you also have to credit me on the description of the art that you use that uses the brushes. You don't have to link directly to the brush set, most people just credit me as redheadstock using DA's icon and link system. Whatever works for you, as long as the credit is in the description of every artwork you make that uses them. 

Or you can just buy a license for them on my website and not ever have to credit me. Up to you. :)

Hi, thanks for the brushes, I will like to use them in future works.
Do I put the credit on the picture itself in the form of watermark or is it alright to put it in the page description when I submit the art?
My main publish sources are Deviantart and Pixiv.

I want to use your brushes for at personal resume. I am pretty new on this site, so I hope I am doing the right thing by writing what I would use them for? How do I credit? Just write "thanks" here or?
Reply
:iconredheadstock:
redheadstock Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2016  Professional General Artist
If you're using them for a personal resume, just go ahead and use them. If you are distributing the resume to others, then you would need to find a way to credit me (as obsidiandawn.com) on the resume somewhere. But for your own resume, no worries. 

Usually credit must be on or next to or attached to the product/webpage/photo that they are displayed on, though. :)

Sure! I'm not sure if you mean an online story here on DA, but that works perfectly, if so. And if you ever make it into a book or some such, the copyrights page is the easiest place to put it. Make sure if you're using it off DA, you're crediting my website, obsidiandawn.com. Thanks!
