:bulletblack: Please do not use my stock to create your own. You're not allowed to post my stock on any other website.

:bulletblack: You can submit your work as a DA print if you want.

:bulletblack: You can post your work off-site including printed portfolios as long as credit is given to both me and the photographer.

For digital art/photomanipulations:

:bulletblack: You are not allowed to use parts of my body, clothes or jewels to fit another person.

For traditional works (drawings, paintings ect.):

:bulletblack: You can use my stocks however you want to - As pose references and stuff like that. It don't have to look like me. You have all the artistic freedom you want, since you're not using my picture directly.

If anything remain unclear, feel free to ask.

I'm looking very much forward to see your work!

Thank you.

What's with the awful sharp contrast purple-black vertical stripes? It looks awful and literally hurts my eyes.

Considering you're an art person, I'm shocked to see that from you and I do hope you consider changing it.

Hi Maria, i'm about to create a stylized 3d portrait of one of your stocks (probably this one this one). So i was wondering if that fall to the traditional work rule or something else ? You know, I was thinking about open for 3d commission work, but i need to practice first.

I am a traditional artist but I do not sell prints on DA but I hope to sell prints soon (not through DA). If I use one of your photos for reference would it be alright if I made prints of my final product and sold them?

I used one of your photos as a reference but it is a nude. I wouldn't consider it pornographic, because, in my opinion, it is tastefully done, and nothing is *shown*.  I'd like to post it on my own dA but I wasn't sure what the rules were for non-pornographic nude drawings. It is traditional media, and it doesn't look like you.
