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!


 * 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.

I have a question. For my new YouTube video, I made a graphic card which will represent the introduction of the video. I needed a Frost brush as I needed to design for this video's theme, I hope it's okay if I use it.

I will credit you in the description.

But, should I directly use your website link?

ust to clarify... your terms of use is a contradiction. IF your are allowing this to be used in prints legally speaking a commercial license isn't needed for print media. IE: comics, Commerical print media usage (ie:posters, photographs etc). So, this is where the confusion lies, If i am doing a comicbook series and use your brushes for a tattoo and i self publish on both digital and print format you; I can't be held liable for a legal damages while using your brushes?

Please sue me or email me: Iamgotharts@gmail.com

By the way, your tribal tattoos aren't copyrighted. If i am not mistaken, you can't copyright tattoo designs. i forgot to mention that in the previous statement. I look forward for a law suit.

Hi, can I convert these for apps other than Ps and GIMP? I won't post them anywhere, but I'd like to use these in my software. Of course, I'll adhere to all the rules and credit you wherever I post the artwork.


Sorry im new here. How can i use this in ibispaint x?

I have a little question, i'm a Clip Studio Paint user and really wish to know if your restriction about conversions is only concerning the conversion PS --> Gimp or all conversions in general.

If I may ask, please, to use your resources for commercial use of any kind, will users need to buy a license, or can we use them for commercial use for free as long as we credit you?

A question I have.
For example : if I make commissions and I add your brushes on these for good effects is okay?

And is okay if I credit you by showing the link of your site on my posted my artwork on Instagram and Tumblr too?
redheadstock's avatar
That's fine, but for commissions, you may want a license. Depending on what its for, but generally you'd need one. You can purchase licenses on my website for $3 per set (which lasts forever, and you can use it unlimited amounts of times in your work) at obsidiandawn.com

Im a bit confused.
So whenever we create something involving what you have, we give you credit no matter what?
Sorry if i got that confused-
redheadstock's avatar
Yep. If you use my copyrighted property anywhere, even if you're adding it in with a bunch of other stuff, you need to credit me for it. Right alongside or on top of the object or product or image.

If you don't want to do that, I have licenses available for only $3 that then allows you to do anything you want with these without needing to credit me (short of reselling them, of course) :)
Thanks so much!

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