Well, ok, let's say I'm too lazy to do rules, I have always been... and probably always will be, and copying someone else's rules, just seems like ingringing copyright, so here we go:
I've decided to watermark all my stock and enabled it to be downloadable for points
Although this may seem a bit unfair for some, especially the ones that stick to DA rules and only use my stock to better their own skills, or simply because they get inspired by it and fancy working on it...(those can note me if they wish too much to work on my pictures but can't afford it, or if they don't have points and are happy to pay via paypal, I'm happy that way too)
But due to a couple of incidents I have experienced recently I even considered to give up doing stock all together, but the fact is that I like being of inspiration, and I wouldn't like to leave a lot of artists without the original reference to their work either. So I've decided to sell my stock pictures, that way I can guarantee myself that only really interested people in it would use it, and my aim is also to encourage these artists to sell their prints or dowloads of their works with my stock as well, that way they support my work, and somebody can support theirs. And the good thing is that once you've download it you can use it for outside DA too, and if you sell it you won't have to contact me to give me a percentage of it, as I would have got it already.
I've found that this way I'm way happier to keep the stock alive and working, as that way even if someone is mean enough as to download it, remove the watermark and attempt to sell it somewhere else, at least I would have got my bit of cash for it. Some new friends regard my stock as art itself, and I feel very flattered, so thanks or and I think I should value my work a bit more than I've done so far...
When it comes to manipulations, if it's offensive use of my work, I will ask for it to be removed, please no gender change! I'm a female, and like to be regarded as such EVERYWHERE, and no animal transformations or morphs either please, I just like being a plain human in female shape with all my limbs. Elfs, fairies, angel or evil transformations are fine but please send me a link to your sta.sh before publishing just in case.
But basically, as long as you use it to enhance the original material or to transform it into something more appealing than it actually is ....will make me very happy and will probably be featured into my facebook page either by sharing or by using it as my cover picture, always of course adding a link to your work in it, and letting you know.
So, have I forgotten anything?
The pricing varies for each picture ... there is a reason for the difference in price, if the picture seems good quality to you, then the price is probably low because I want to encourage use of that stock, as it might be a picture I'm satisfied with but never been used, other than that, I also put lower prices to the pictures that might be slightly blurred, chopped my arms, not properly framed, or things like that, still usable and probably inspiring though, sometimes blur adds to it, so yes, it depends of the picture and I also value them on how much I want to see my face or work in someone else's work, so if it's too expensive perhaps I think it's worth it due to quality or work I've put into creating it, daring of the pose, or just because I can't stand my face in that piece and I don't want to encourage many people to use it, lol
If you think the price is too expensive, don't think of it as DA points, but as cents.... and think how much you can buy with that, and then you'll get to the conclusion that it might not be that much after all when this is my one and only work.
And yeps, I think that was pretty much all I wanted to say... I have been delaying this a long while, I still haven't managed to put prices to all my pics, as I have like 600 hundred!! and if you find any that hasn't been priced yet you're still welcome to use it only here on DA, take it as an offer!!
And of course the basic rule of credit me as stockist and put a link to the original work, and if you use my picture somewhere else outside DA credit me as a model and photographer too!
So that was it, I hope you understand my reasons for doing so and if you have any questions please feel free to comment.
