Rules for how to use my stock

I am experiencing "death by success"

...Right now I have 615 notes in my in-box here. If I were to go someplace with high speed internet and sit there for 3 solid days, I could probably clear my in-box. By the time I'm done typing this, I'll probably be at 620 notes. And, because I don't respond fast enough, some of you (it's OK, I'm not complaining) note me over at my art account, or Email me directly.

I don't know what to do. :( I've removed the "please note me" part of my "how to use my stock" and I gave up long ago and stopped following the tags on my top page.

Anyhow, something's got to break. I can't make reviewing art-works my full time job and I don't want to stop posting stock. Besides, I'm at critical mass in that department - even if I stop posting stock, I'll still get buried. I love seeing all the stuff you guys are creating. But it's scary the way my in-box keeps filling every time I load my page...

Love you all,
  • Mood: Affection
  • Listening to: Pink Floyd: The Wall
  • Reading: When it all clicks
  • Watching: My computer; duh.
  • Eating: coffee
  • Drinking: coffee

Sorry you're getting so overwhelmed! *hug* but thank you, your stock/reference photos are such a huge help especially to someone still studying the human form. Maybe you should take a vacation! Paris? Fiji? Tokyo!

Goodness, this sounds like a crisis indeed. I think you ought to just ignore your notes from now on :)

You should hire someone to take care of the overload so that you can create without the stress

I would like to use some of your photographs from your stock account for trying to draw them with the purpose of doing a practice. I have planned to submit the practice i'll do in my Deviantart account and adding in the comment a link to yours saying that I used your photo as the model of my work.

Hope you like that, because I think your work will help me much to improve doing mine.

Thank you for your attention.

PS: Excuse me if my explanation has some grammatical mistakes (I'm still learning english).

Here's my first drawing where I've used one of your pictures as reference. Thank you very much, they help me to practice.

Sorry about the blank comment... I wanted to say that I completely understand why you have so much to do. You are an amazing artist and provide us with such wonderful photos to use that it is nearly impossible not to use them! I hope you'll find some way to not overwork yourself.
Thank you for everything you do! :hug:

This is my newest one using your stock: Autumn Fairy
Hope you like :)

Hello sorry if I write this here, but I can not find the rules. I wish I could use this to create a beautiful photo cover book is intended commercial purpose, can I do it? I thought I read some time ago that the use was free as long as you came credited, but I can not find the rules. Am I wrong? The photo that I would use is this:… thank you very much =)

Ha! Critical mass for you was achieved sometime ago. Since you get about 5K hits to your page per day! That is ludicrous! Too bad you can't make .01 cents per view ;) Love your stuff. You were my early inspiration!
SilverRiverArt Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Don't stress too much about it and please, for heaven's sake don't stop adding stock!  Your note in this journal is sufficient, I mean the worst case scenario is you just empty your inbox, and do a general thank you to everyone and when and if you have time, you look at the links people have provided on your stock.  And go from there.

Maybe create a group and users just post to that.  You can then browse when you have time without having to open/read/close notes all the time.  Just a thought.

Your stock is kick-ass good sir, kick-ass!

Well. you already agreed to let me use your stock ones to create this [link]

i think you liked it. so I'd like to do another one... this one is not going to be with nudity and i will try to have it go with the flow of the music.

its a song in russian called "koshka" - cat

I am just going to start on it and hope to hear from you while i am working on it. going to feature twice more of your images because song has some beats and i want the flow of images to go with the song beat.
mjranum-stock Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2008
Yeah.. I did. :)
By all means, go ahead with your project. I enjoy your work! :thumbsup:

After reading the journal i'm not quite sure whether to write this, but I feel bad not to as I have used your stock on my "Dormant reaper [link]" here...
And I sure want to thank you for letting me :)
VisualPoetress Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2008   Digital Artist
You have such beautiful and quality stocks :) Thank you for allowing us to use it !

Asterisk-Sky Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
well, it happened because u have such many great stocks
u dont have to reply all of the comments. *including this.
when everybody knows ur busy (very busy) its ok to not reply all of the comments given.
meljoy68 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Sucks to be so popular!! :laughing: I was just getting ready to send you a note, too. ;)

Oh well. I'm glad I don't have to type it fingers hurt from the other 15 msgs I had to write to go along with the piece I was going to reference...not that I would have expected a reply, but just to let you know...

You could ask for some might require someone being able to log into your account, but if you trusted them, they could copy/paste a thank you note and weed down your inbox... Just a thought. :aww:
