I want to say thank you to all of the artists out there who follow my rules and create beautiful work with my stock. I also really appreciate everyone who supports my work in general. If you see a rule violation please let me know. I do enforce my rules. I'm happy to provide stock and will continue to do so as long as people respect my rules. Thanks and enjoy!

A few questions!

- Is it okay to use your images as references (NOT traced) for YHH pieces?
- If art with your image as a reference (again NOT traced) is uploaded to specifically Instagram, would it be okay to have credit in the description (as Instagram allows a description) rather than the image, since the image of the art itself doesn't contain any elements directly from your stock photo? If not, I understand!

I have a small question regarding rule number 3.
If I should ever consider drawing something like the four horsemen and want to use one of your amazing stock pictures as pose reference for famine or death
(so skeletal frame) would that be okay? Not manipulating the existing picture but really just use the pose as reference for a digital drawing.
I totally understand if it falls under rule 3 but I thought asking might never hurt.

Just for clarification. I can use your stock offsite as long as the credits are on the image. However, I was sure howrse didn't allow any type of wording on coats.

If I am using it as a RPG image must I still cut out the horse onto a new background and credit you for the image? 
venomxbaby's avatar
Technically you're supposed to, but I've seen people direct linking my images on RPGs all the time. I let it slide, but would ask that you at least credit the image with a link to my page. That would be the ethical way of doing it.

Would it be okay if I made a line art for personal use only referencing one of your photos?

I REALLY hope this is what you meant by that you allowed linearts to be made from your stock, I recently got into lineless paintings and I wanted to make a few bases to practice and share with people :aww: 

I made this: 
Lineless Horse Base 1 by Scutterland

From this gorgeous photo of yours :aww:

and if you're ok with it, then I would love to make a few more! 

Thanks so much :heart:

Oh yes that is perfectly fine with me. Technically this is usually what lineart looks like, from what I understand: kholran.deviantart.com/art/Fri…

But what you created is certainly allowed and you are welcome to make more :]

Hi there, how do we credit you if we would like to use one of your images for fine art paintings - i.e. not digital where one can add your link?
I see you do mention we may use your photos as references for traditional art, but how do we credit you in this case?

Thank you for your time.
venomxbaby's avatar
If you create a real traditional painting, I will understand that it's not possible to credit so don't worry about it. If you post it online and you have space to credit the reference, please do. If not, not a big deal.

Thanks for your response - I have a facebook page that I upload my paintings to when they are done - I will credit your images there. Thank you for providing such beautiful images free of charge!
