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!
Greetings  Gigi

This is really reasonable.

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 : )

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.

Is it okay to use the images as reference for school? You mentioned not using them for competitions, but'd I'd really like to draw them and use them for my AP portfolio, is that not okay?

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.

Here's a link of them using it on their myspace music page: [link]

How dare they infringe your artworks?! Actually, I'm still afraid about my artworks security. =)

Umm I was just wondering if I could post some on your pictures on my blog, with a link back to your DA page of course. : )
Sorry to bother I just wanted to make sure.
zemotion's avatar
