. It has become my life and blood these days, and I hope you can appreciate the sentiment as a fellow artist. Some of my older photos aren't there because of quality issues, but you can use the search engine with relevant keywords to find a specific photo (if not you can still credit the image from my dA account
That is all concerning my newly revised Stock Rules. Thank you kindly for the support, your feedback has been very helpful when I asked you about the possibility of switching to Creative Commons
In the end I hope it will make life easier for you to read less rules, while encouraging a little more fair use and artistic merit by including credits. And yes, this also means you are free to use my stock in premade backgrounds! Bonus Precut Exchange:
While this does not at all affect my stock rules, I would like to propose an experimental exchange program that Eve
inspired me with
If you find a premium image of mine you would like to use in a photomanipulation, I am ready to give you the high res version for free if you give me the precut / masked image in return. Examples could include landscapes isolated from the sky, or other subjects like buildings, objects etc.
I would expect some reasonable effort put into it and not just quick use of the magic wand for example by leaving stray pixels and rough edges - in other words the precut image should look pretty clean. I would not ask for your finished photomanipulation at full res, but might use the full res precut part of my image as stock. All this in the spirit of collaboration where we both benefit from the exchange.
