Credit me either by linking back to the stock you used or to my profile
Be creative, don't just recolour or retouch (I can do that myself!)
Drop me a note in the comments so I can see what you've done with it
Don't create anything that will make my Mam blush, she does check my DA account (she's fine with anything that Michaelangelo would have created so don't worry about tasteful/artful nudity)
Don't go complaining about the quality, not everything on here is for photo manipulators, some of it is for reference
DO NOT sell my stock, use my stock for commercial works or anything you intend to make money off (DA prints are fine) or in anyway use this stock for personal gain
These pictures are NOT in the public domain (they are offered under a non commercial attribution licence)
If a piece is stated that it is for reference only that means you can only use it to work off, things like giving you an idea of how it should look or a typical pose for the thing in question. IT IS NOT FOR STOCK USE
Please don't just cut things out and offer them as stock, or glue two images together and offer them as a premade background, if you want to make a premade background then make sure it conforms to these rules and you give me a heads up that you have done this
If I think that a piece of stock is getting too much abuse or is being frequently used for stuff that goes against these rules I will take it down. If I feel the need to make a change to these rules I will.
Please don't complain about the stock or the rules, if it's not something you like just move on. I have gone to some trouble with some of this stock, including trudging through 9 inches of snow (I'm British, if we get over 4 inches it's a catastrophe!). If you like it drop me a comment or a fave and make my day!
If you're not sure, ask. I'm not an ogre, honest!
I used to thank everybody personally for their favourites, but you're being so generous with them now that it'd take me a few hours everyday just to say thanks! I do really appreciate favourites, watches and, of course, llamas and occasionally I may drop you a thanks if you've faved a lot of my work. Thank you everyone!
