Hi, I have to ask you to allow me to use your motherland_chronicles_43_dreaming for a drawing and a book cover? It would be really nice of you. You're so talented, everything is great!

I found this product with a manipulated version of your icon photo, 'The moment after...'. Just in case these people do not have permission to use your image, here's the link [link]
I hope you see this if it is an issue : )

Hello;
I used one of your photos in manipulation, just for a small school project (i read below and saw that it was okay) not posting on da,
But I was wondering if I could submit it as part of my AP portfolio? It would just go to colleges to see, I wouldn't be making any money nor taking any kind of ownership for the photo, and it wouldn't be published anywhere.
If it is not okay, I understand and won't submit it.

I found your image as a CD cover randomly on iTunes. The band/cd is "Paint the Night Black: We Own the Night". Don't know if it was stolen or if they actually had your permission, but I thought you should know.

Hi, I'm a bit confused...
I'm doing a project on portraits at school and was wondering if i could do an 'artist copy' of one of your pictures and draw it? I would put the name of the piece and your name.
Your work is really inspiring, thank you (:

Possible infringement by vnsing.com I have a screenshot of an ad that uses 'Headphones are Stylish.' found at [link] . Feel free to delete this comment, I just wanted to let you know and this seemed the most appropriate place to do so.

Great work, by the way. Your photos are distinctive enough for me to see it in an ad and think, "I've seen that on dA!"

A quick question - does your copyright notice include small projects that will never be published, like a school assignment in an art class? I have an assignment to create fake magazine cover spreads that will only be graded by my professor, nothing more. Just wondering :)

hum,yesterday I went across a flyer about wacom graphic tablet, and there is a picture of yours on it
("Luna" to be exact). There was your name stated and "zemotion copyright" blabla, but I was wandering if you really gave them third party license, or if you have royalties on it.

If yes,then false alert, if not, I'll try to have this flyer and scan it so you can see it. ;p

Hey, I have used one of your photos as a reference to a drawing, but I changed it a little, the colors and the patters in the dress/kimono.. Are you still fine with me posting it at dA?
(And of course I will add a link to your site and the original photo of yours under the drawing. And I'll add a little comment about your art work too ;))
