My stock photos are NOT to be used any more. If you have already downloaded them, please delete them. Any and all works uploaded before August 19th, 20123 are permitted and safe SO LONG AS MY STOCK TERMS WERE FOLLOWED! Any further usage of my photos will be reported.

I am sorry to take this route, but I will no longer offer stock.

I hope most of you are watching my journals, so there will be less confusion in the future!

If you've been around the last week, you've heard about the big brouhaha the stock community found itself in suddenly. Sorry about that... but not completely sorry. I'm incredibly heartbroken to see some amazing stock artists leave, but I completely understand their decision (I made the same). It was never my intention to cause any hard feelings in a community I love so much.
BUT...
At least now most everyone is on the same page. Stock artists now know for certain that in order to deal with a violation of their rules, they should contact the Help Desk with a Policy Inquiry ticket, leaving out anything about copyright. Staff is happy to help you, so long as they get the right sort of report. I wish it hadn't taken such a struggle to get that information, but it's public knowledge, so I hope it helps.

But I am leaving that all behind. I am still sticking with my decision to no longer offer stock on deviantART. I feel it's the best choice for me, since I do not completely understand dA's viewpoint on stock, the DMCA, and how they're connected. It's not that I want dA staff to be wrong, but I have to see plain and compelling proof. It's just how I am - I hope no one holds that against me. It's how I learn, it's how I am (and I'm not even from the Show Me state :lmao:).

Anyway, since I will no longer be offering stock, I completely understand if you wish to remove me from your watch. I am probably going to change the account name and make this my photography account (keeping my digital art and photography separate). This means, of course, that anything found on this account will not be stock! There will be no hard feelings at all if we part ways :nod:

Like I said, I love the stock community. Where else can you find so many generous and talented people, who band together like y'all do? :heart: I have no hard feelings against any of the staff, any of the Community Volunteers or any of the artists who have properly used my stock! You guys rock and I am so honored to have been a part of your creative process! :love:

I'd like to upgrade my stock account to Premium! Any spare you have, just, you know, lying around collecting dust... I'd be happy to take those off your hands :D

In return for your points, I will be happy to meander through your galleries, leaving faves (and critique if you're interested) and will send a llama (if I haven't already).
If you donate 200 or more points, I will also make a 5x7 photomanipulation just for you and send you a digital copy (400 or more points - 8x10) - this will include printing rights. You can see examples of my work at slight-art-obsession!

You must be logged in to donate.
