It is a requirement of my stock that you upload a copy of the art to DA, and that you send me a link to it.
When your stock is completed please send me a link to the final product. I love to see what you all create with my stock, and its common courtesy to let me know that it has been used. Please do not rely on the Mentions system as I am missing a lot of images that use my stock. PLEASE put a physical link on the stock Image Used or my front page. Thank you
When ever my stock is used please credit, For off site use please Credit fillyrox.deviantart.com on the picture. When uploading onto DA it is preferred that credits appear in the artist description with a link to both my profile and the image so that others can find it.
Exception - Referenced Images
A Referenced image is an image that has been loosely referenced and Not Traced. Referenced Images do not need to have credits on image offsite but if possible it is preferred. All images using my stock require credits in Artist Description on DA.
Commissions are fine as long as they are for a single person. Commissions can be for DA Points, Art Trades, Sim Game Money or Legal Tender (Money).

It is preferred that my stock is not used as a reference for free to use lineart. If you wish to do this please contact me via note.
Pre-Cuts & Tack-Removals
I am now allowing everyone to use my stock in Pre-Cuts and Tack Removals, Although Rules are very strict and should they not be followed there will be no warnings. Edited Image must be uploaded to DA, In the artist description there must be Links to my Profile, the original Image and these Stock Rules. Any use of the edited image must follow any rules that you set as well as all my stock rules. (Some rules may contradict each other; EG, You may request No Offsite use, therefore the edited image can not be used offsite.) Please notify me of any Pre-Cuts or Tack Removals of my stock so that I can add a link to the original Image.
"I hereby grant all DeviantArtists permission to use my stock in any and all Deviant Prints without restriction."
