Stock Rules

Updated 11 January 2015 - Added Specific rules; Howrse Coats.
Updated 19 August 2014 -
Changes to; Linking Back.

My stock is free to use as long as the following rules are followed; If Following my rules is just too hard then please do not use my stock!

PLEASE READ ALL RULES - RIGHT TO THE BOTTOM! 
If you have any questions please ask away!


Stock in its Original Form
Stock must NOT be uploaded in its original state anywhere. Please let me know if you see any of my stock uploaded anywhere it shouldn't be.

Stock - For use in Photo Manipulation
Stock must be manipulated in one way or another. In no way should you just stick a filter or effect on my stock and upload it.
As I have had some issues with this rule - I will have an issue with images that are essentially only one image which is my stock. If Items have not been cut, or there is not a blending of items. Please Be Aware that i do not consider simple edits, Filters, Overlays, or Minor enhancements to be Photo Manipulations.

Stock - For use in Drawings - References/Tracing
You are more than welcome to use my stock as a reference for a drawing or sketch. Please see Credit for more information.

Offsite Use
My stock is allowed to be used offsite as long as credits are clear on the image. This includes Sim Sites. This MEANS all images that use my stock offsite are required to display my username. As a General Rule my stock is NOT to be used for coats on howrse.
Exception - Referenced Images - Please See Credit.

Howrse Coats
If you wish to use my stock for a Howrse coat please send me a note. As a general rule my Stock is NOT allowed to be used for Howrse coats anymore - New rule as at 11 January 2015

Required upload to DA
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.

Linking Back
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

Credit
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
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).

Commercial Use
Where you feel the use may be considered Commercial please contact me via note. Commercial is production for an entity or multiple people. Images may appear in mass media. Main website headers may sometimes be included as commercial use.

Lineart
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. 

Prints
"I hereby grant all DeviantArtists permission to use my stock in any and all Deviant Prints without restriction."


Reporting Stock Infringements
Clarifying an Issue with Stock ResourcesThere appears to be a fair amount of misunderstanding on the subject of stock resources so what I would like to do today is attempt to clarify several issues which are of importance to the artists who generously provide stock resources to the public for use and hopefully dispel the confusion and misinformation which is beginning to circulate.
The first issue at hand is in regards to your personal stock terms


Your Personal Stock Terms
Officially deviantART maintains only one "automatic" restriction and that is "No Commercial Use" and that particular restriction can easily be overridden by the actual stock provider.
As far as official policy is concerned each stock resource provider is free to attach any Terms of Use, restrictions or requirements that they see fit and our moderation staff will do the best we can to help you enforce your rules when you need that sort of assistance.
We only ask a few things from you in return;
P



Any Questions?
Feel free to ask, I dont Bite! Questions will help make my stock rules more comprehensive and easy to understand.

I'm interested in using this photo: fav.me/d63x71l as a reference for a lineart for my fictional horse breed. I would be making imports with the stock, probably selling some for points or maybe USD. A majority would be going for free though. I would credit you on the picture, and in the description if you would prefer. The only people able to use these lines would be the select few admin in my group, and they would not be for free use.

Would this be okay with you, or not?

I am again asking about using your stock for lines of a fictional horse breed. I'd like to do some more lines using your stock- Same conditions as above, and only for admin use. Just want to make sure that you're still okay with that :)

Thanks :D

Hello,

Usually when people are using my stock offsite it tends to be on Sim/RPG games and there is limited space for them to credit photographers and hence the request that it is on the image. I don't particularly want to make this rule any more complex by saying that if there is an opportunity where you can place it in the description... Blah blah etc. If say you were uploading it to another art site that allows for you a full description like on DA I would allow the credit to be in the description.

As long as the image is uploaded to DA and follows all of my rules I don't think I would have an issue with Redbubble (I will admit that this is the first time I have heard or seen the site)

Nameda Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2015  Professional General Artist
redbubble is a tad like dA you can sell prints, you can join groups, but thats where the similarity ends, you cant for example upload 2 images, one for preview one for print, but one for both.

And imagine you use lets say 20 stock pieces and everyone wants credit on image... you won't see a thing of the artwork :giggle: And I never have been on any of those sim pages and not plan to do so either

Hiiiiii

I was wondering if I could post my finished work on Instagram since I will occasionally post my art on there to let my followers see. I just wanted to double check since it is social media. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to send me a note.

Hi!
Is it okay if I use your pictures to make blends to sell on a website MyHorsez.com
I wasn't sure cause I'm not so good at Englisch (I'm from Holland)
(It is not real money by the way, just coins from the website)
Love, Nianne.

I've read through the rules but I just want to make absolutely certain, would using your stock as a reference for a "Your Horse Here" fall into the Commissions category?

Just making sure- if the stock image was only referenced and not traced it means that it could be uploaded to Howrse and then I could give you credit on my profile page?

Some photos I found in your gallery would be perfect for a hoarse coat<3

Hello,

You are correct, As long as the image is not traced you may use it as reference without credit on Howrse. BUt it still must be uploaded to DA with full credits.

Thank you

Hi,

your photos are so beautiful, I want to use one of them for a drawing. You write, this would be fine. My question is: Do I need to write your link ON the real drawing or is it fine, when I place the link with photoshop on it, wenn uploading it?

Thanks,
Jen

Hello,

You are most welcome to use my stock in a drawing I ask that a link is only added once it is uploaded onto the internet. If you are uploading to DA in the artists description is fine. If it is offsite from DA I ask that it is on the picture itself :)

Hopefully this answers your questions and if you have anymore - please feel free to ask!

Thank you,
Filly <3

I am of the preference that my stock isn't used to make 'free to use line arts' 

If you are making the line art purely for yourself (IE other people aren't using the lines) and the image inst traced I will allow it.

So to clarify, I'm using it as a base to host the design of the horse that is available for adoption. The other people won't be using the design but will be looking off it as a reference.  Here is the link of what I have done: secretkeeperofhorses.deviantar… referenced from fillyrox.deviantart.com/art/ST… Let me know if it's something you disapprove of. So technically it is for myself but also for others?

The images need to be edited (usually as a photo manipulation) I do not allow my images to be posted as they are.

What is the site?

Just to check; with the new mentions system, do you still want a direct link back to our art? I always provide credit (whether the stock artist requests it or not, both to the photo and direct to the artist) but I wanted to check rather than adding to any spam you might now get because of the Mentions :)

As always, thank you for providing such beautiful photography :)

I do prefer a comment as Mentions may get lost. Im also finding that a lot of people are not mentioning properly meaning that If they didnt send me a comment I would never know. I may update the rules again soon to advise that Comments not Mentions are required!

Thank you for checking!
