Hi Homaz,

First of all thank you. I'm glad you like it enough to want to use it as a background for your music video. Your piano playing is very beautiful.
I do however prefer people to ask permission before they decide to use my work. In this case it's fine though. But I prefer to be asked beforehand next time.
Thanks again. And keep up making great music. :D

Heyyy Tamera - I was immediately struck by the power of your vision in creating the exemplary piece, Midnight Whales. After I studied each of your stock elements, I was even more impressed by the precision of your work in selecting and blending each subject into an astonishing whole.

Tamera, I was trying to find how to get permission to use your image as the main element on an eBook cover. What I have found is that you'd like a credit and a backlink. Am I correct?

Thank you for all you do.

Hi Artosilencio. Thank you for the compliment. Is this a commercial or non-commercial eBook? I can not give permission for use of my image on an e-book for free. 
If you still like to use it I require a payment for use and information about what the e-book s about. I also need to contact all the stock providers to ask for their permission. Let me know if you are still interested. Thank you for understanding.

Hi, tamaraR!

My eBook, Next History, came out in 2014 on Amazon, and recently I've expanded to include Kobo, Apple, B&N, plus various other publishers. It sold fairly well in the beginning, but faded. Now I'm working on a re-launch and part of that effort is a new cover.

You can read about the book (and see the most recent cover) here -- www.amazon.com/dp/B00BLT0AZO.

Whales figure prominently in the plot, as does the occult pentagram. I felt that your Midnight Whales image would fit nicely into the bottom portion of the design; it would place the young woman looking toward the pentagram, which is the problem she's faced with in the book.

On the Amazon page there's a description that teases what the book's about, and some reviews.

Before you go to the work of contacting all your stock sources, I'd like some idea of your price to use the image.

Thank you very much, and once again big kudos on your artworks!

Lee Baldwin,

Dear Lee Baldwin,

I'm afraid I have to decline. I don't want my art to be used as part of another cover that has been made by someone else. I also prefer to keep my art not affiliated with philosophical, religious ideas but only related to pure fantasy. I wish you the best of luck with your book.

Kind regards
Tamara Rouwendal

Dear Tamara;

Thank you for considering my request to use your art. I completely respect your decision and your wishes. Your life's work belongs to you.

I must say however that Next History is not about religion. It's about bringing intelligent minds face-on to the overall buggery of the patriarchal system to enjoy in a vicarious way how it would feel to turn that around. The book asks every reader one question: Are your immediate needs more important than the future of life on Earth? Every human being faces that question in ways big and small on a daily basis and most of us fail at it. It is about responsibility.

My best to you. I'll always be a fan of your art.

Yours, Lee

Dear Lee,

Thank you very much. That is very kind of you. I see then I must have misunderstood the context of Next History.
Best of luck with your book.
My best to you too.

Kind regards,
Tamara

Thanks for letting me know. This one is a big problem. I see it everywhere because I made it as a wallpaper. There are many many sites who post it and don't credit me. :(
