YOU CAN'T SHARE PREMIUM CONTENT STOCKI've been noticing a trend over the past few months that needs to stop. I haven't mentioned it since it wasn't happening on a frequent basis.
Now it's occurring every week, so without mentioning names or specific stock ...
If you purchase my Premium Content Stock, you MAY NOT share it with anyone else.
I'm talking about custom stock I've made and offer as Premium Content. This doesn't involve other stock artists using the same base models and selling stock renders - it's about stock purchased FROM ME and then given away to others for free use in their photo-manipulations.
Many of you are asking about stock you have downloaded in the past when they were free.
Here's a few rules about using the OLD downloaded stock:
- Stock can only be used on DA. No exceptions.
- No commercial use allowed except for DA prints.
- You must credit me in the DESCRIPTION.
- You must notify me with a link to your art.
Don't claim it's yours, don't sell it, don't make stock with it, don't use it for art to be sold as commissions or Premium Content.
Stock that was downloaded in the past for free is for non-commercial use only on deviantART.There is no more free stock here thanks to the people who constantly violated my rules by stealing, not crediting, not notifying me, cussing me out then blocking me. I found my entire gallery being sold on websites in Russia, China, France and Spain. The stress of trying to enforce simple rules is just not worth it. I feel bad for the 99% of you who always followed the simple rules I had.
I will only be here once or twice a week to check messages. If needed, you can reach me by email which I check daily: email@example.com
I've re-submitted some of my most popular stock as Premium Content for anyone who needs an immediate download.
All of the Premium Content PREVIEW images are heavily watermarked. The premium content download files are high resolution with transparent backgrounds and no watermarks. There are a few stock images that are .jpg with a white background and that will be stated in the description of those images.
I currently have 9 stock folders set up in Sta.sh containing ALL stock I've created in the past 6 years. Prices range from 24-32 each and cost even less when purchasing groups of 10. Prices are located at the bottom of each Preview Sheet description in my Stock Gallery. The TOU (rules) are posted below and in my stock gallery.
I DO NOT require credit or notification if you buy my stock. Once you purchase something you can do anything you want with it EXCEPT sell it, claim it's yours etc. Click on the thumb to view the TOU. It's .JPG format so you can download it.I've posted thumbnail preview sheets in my gallery so you can see what's available. I have lots of high quality, custom made 3D stock that isn't uploaded anywhere yet. This option is for users who don't want to sign up for an account at my commercial sites.
