Any and all deviations posted to Stock folders are free to use for any project, provided the following guidelines are followed.
Any resources are absolutely 100% FREE TO USE for any projects so long as it does not comprise the majority of said project. They can be used to add a texture to an object, as a reference for a drawing, or as an element in a bigger picture. You cannot simply take something and modify it slightly to call it your own.
If used as part of a project on deviantART please provide a link either through comment or message so I can see where things are being used. I upload these elements for free for other artists to use, and I enjoy seeing how other people take what I've made and use it to help create their own original works.
The textures/stock cannot comprise the majority of a project, or where they comprise a significant portion of the project that cannot be the focal point. I am a texture artist after all, and these textures are no different from any other artistic endeavor. Though they may ultimately be designed to serve as only a small piece of a work, they should be treated as artistic works in their own right governed by the same considerations.
Acceptable: Using as a background where the foreground is the focal point; using as a texture on a model or design; using a texture to add color or pattern to an element.
Unacceptable: Re-uploading the texture as your own with infobox removed; using the texture as the major element in a work where it is the focus; slightly modifying the texture and calling it an original piece; creating a new texture using a combination of mine and uploading that as an original work.
Redistribute any files I share within the Stock folders as you see fit, so long as the white infobox remains a part of the image and remains UNCHANGED IN ANY WAY. In the case of texture packs, the pack must remain together as individual textures contained within are lacking these infoboxes.
Any use of stock resources offered here intended to generate revenue (included but not limiting to: submitting prints to deviantART, use on commercial websites, use in broadcast or commercial works, etc.) is permitted provided I be notified. I will determine on a case by case basis whether I require any credit. As always, a link back (where applicable) is appreciated.
Exclusive Usage Rights:
Textures are provided FREE to all users. As such, exclusive usage rights are not available at this time.
If there is a certain element you need or would like to see, please submit a request either through message or wall comment. If possible I will endeavor to create it.
Retirement of Elements:
At any time and at my own discretion I will reclassify a stock resource as Non-Stock, in which case it can no longer be used for future projects. It will either be transitioned to a new folder, or removed entirely. In such a case, if you have already used it, you do not need to remove it from any works completed or in progress, but please refrain from using it in the future.
Anything contained in these terms of usage are subject to revisions made by me at any time. My word is law when it comes to my stock. They are elements I have made that have proved useful in other projects, or works that didn't make the final cut. I offer them up to my fellow artists to use to help them achieve on the screen the images they see in their head. If you're abusing them, I will remove them.
