Older than the mountain by Shockbolt Older than the mountain by Shockbolt
In this picture I wanted to create the face or mask of a really old being, perhaps a God of some sort. In any case an immortal. I started out with a very monochrome picture in darkblue colors and then added some purple complimentary colors around one of his eyes.

Ask for permission before using this image for any reason.

Magnificence! Might I use your work for a cover art?

That would depend on a few things, mainly what book would it be used for and what would you be willing to pay for doing so? :D

Hello, I'm in the middle of creating my own set for a TCG called Magic: The Gathering. It's just a home hobby sort of thing, it won't ever be seriously published (I think), so I was wondering if I could use this image for one of my cards? You'll be credited of course.

You want to be allowed to use this image for one of the cards in that set, and the set it to be used by Yourself, no "mass production" involved?
If so, then go ahead and use my image, but if it's to be mass produced and published with profit in mind then You'll have to buy a license to use it :)
