Credit & Notify
The credit line must read as AmoretteRose . deviantart . com - NOT .dA or @ dA!! This is required when posting any images using my stock off of DeviantART and is non-negotiable. If you cannot credit on the image, do not use my stock! Deviations that are uploaded just to dA are fine to have description credits only.
The only exception to on-image credits: RP Forums. So long as the artist of the work has the credits in their deviation description, and there is a link to the artwork, then there is no need for on-image credits.
Please tag me and/or the stock used in your deviation description!
Manipulations and References
Please manipulate the image. Adding text or adjusting colours and resubmitting is not manipulating. Artwork made with my stock may never be uploaded into the Photography or Stock Images categories.
Yes, you can use my image for references, however, I do not allow free or paid public use linearts to be made from them. You may do so only for personal use. If you wish to create lines from my stock for the purposes of creating adoptable designs, which you will then sell, it is requested that you purchase the stock for it's designated point value (typically only 50points!!)
Other forms of referencing should be perfectly fine so long as the rules are followed, but if you are not sure, don't hesitate to ask,
I am always lurking.
Sim Game Approved
All stock images have the approval to be used on sim games (like HorsePhenomena.com) so long as correct credit and notification has been given. If the site you want to use it on where credit cannot be given or is not visible, do not use it! (Eg: Howrse coats).
AmoretteRose.dA or @ dA (etc) is not an acceptable form of credit. I understand that those of us who use DeviantART know that it is referred to as dA, but outside of here, those two little letters mean nothing. Please do not credit my account in this way!! AmoretteRose. deviantart. com is how off-site/on-image credits must be given.
I appreciate a creepy image as much as the next person, but I do require that any art made with my stock does not depict the animal in a manner that implies a painful death, torture, or slaughter. Themes that involve exposed bones, some blood, or other such ‘creepy’ things are fine. – If you are unsure, you’re welcome to ask!
Absolutely, positively, no sexual content of any kind is to be made using any of my stocks.
Additionally, there is absolutely no re-uploading/stealing my stock (including uploading pre-cut or tack-removal versions), and no stock is to be used in the creation of other stock.
Once again, if you cannot provide on-image credits when using the image off-site, DO NOT USE MY STOCK.
If you are using my stock in an art piece that is designed to be duplicated (beyond the original copy) for the purposes such as: Prints, Book Covers, CD Covers, Advertisements/Marketing, Market Stall sales, then you are required to NOTE ME to organise a fee to be paid via PayPal.
For the artists out there who do Commissions, or YCH-type works, it is not required of you to purchase the stock, but it would be very much appreciated!! (typically stocks are only 50 points each where applicable, which is still very cheap - that's only 50cents!!).
Horse stocks uploaded with Riders - where it would be inappropriate to remove their faces for obvious reasons - are set up differently than other stocks. For these, you can only download the 1600px images free of charge; you may access the full sizes for a 50 point fee. This is how all Ridden stock will be uploaded from now on.
I was originally going to fix up ALL of my stocks to reflect this, and whilst part of me would still like to do this as I see it is a very reasonable thing, I am leaving all non-ridden stocks as an optional point donation for now. (See Commercial Use for exceptions.)
If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to ask me either via comment, or note. I CHECK BACK FREQUENTLY!
