2. Images on display, with the exception of small watermarked images, are the maximum size that I have. While I can scale down an image, I cannot upscale one without potentially losing quality.
3. While I can change the color of an image, not everything is feasible, please inquire first.

I'd like to use one of your wings for a sim game. I will be getting game currency for it, but no actual money. Does this count as commercial?

Good evening,

I apologize for the delayed reply, thank you for asking, per my rules I do not allow my wings to be used on any type of Sim game or rpg site. 

Thank you,

can I use these wings for a book cover

Hello,

I apologize for the delayed reply, if the book is free then the wings are free for use. If it is 'for profit' then I would charge a commercial fee.

HI - your work is amazing!  I'm not sure what this would come under, but I would to use your image to make necklace displays for my sister.  She has several angelic necklaces and she has been wanting a dramatic way to show them.  I intend to make them out of metal and transfer the image of the wing to the metal.  They wouldn't be sold, just for her use.  I can put your name/site/etc on the displays. Is that a use you would consider and what would you charge for that?

Hi, 

Love your work! I am new here, could you please explain how the use for Commercial purposes works? I sell $1-$2 ebooks, and I would like to use this wing not for the book, but for a Twitter ad promoting the book. How much do you charge for that?  Dragon Wings 02 by Thy-Darkest-Hour

Hi, my name is Nico and I used one of your wings for personal use, published here www.instagram.com/p/BUD6vLTDwm…
The thing is an author contacted me and asked me to use my picture for the cover of his upcoming book, but I used your wings in it. So we wonder how much would we have to pay for it? The book is only paperback and we aren't sure how many books will be printed and sell, perhaps around 400. We live in Argentina. Can you contact me to symphonyofsoldier@gmail.com for the details? It'd be our pleasure to use your beautiful art in it. Thank you.
