If I list a model's icon on DA, it'd be kind of you to drop them a tag or a note letting them know you've used them, so they can see!
I am no longer reading all my DA notes and comments they are overwhelming me! Thank you so much for caring, and using my stock, but it would be a full-time job just to keep up with you. If you want to leave a comment on the image, with a link to your work, please do so - I will check comments randomly from time to time.
If you need to get hold of me urgently, Email me (google me to find my Email address)
If you are wondering why I mark all images "adult content" it's because I only want people who are comfortable with adult content to use my stock. I've had images mis-marked and removed, this way I can be sure nobody will complain. Besides, there's something that will offend anyone in any image if you look hard enough.
It needs more sad sagging body-rolls.
a. The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
d. The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.
j. No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.
Disclaimer: I'm not putting this out there because I'm "offended," but try having some respect for our nation's flag. If not for Trump's sake, then for our United States servicemen and what the flag stands for.

Second of all, it's not even real art. It's a stock image, something to be used by other artists for reference.
I myself have been a target of some of the shit you can claim "died down fifty years ago" because the same people that chased my father down the road yelling "Ni**er" and throwing rocks when he was a kid raised children of their own, and they're the old guard making policy decisions today and raising kids to hide their bias in plain sight. Don't give me that "Died down fifty years ago" because you don't personally have to deal with it in your life. Did fifty years wipe out generations of learning? Did institutional policies and practices reverse over night? Did centuries of keeping families from owning real-estate and building wealth suddenly get undone? Were the records of those in the prison system because of sun-down laws and Jim Crow expunged? Were families broken up by those laws put back together? No, and all the lingering biases had to be restrained with legislation, a band-aid over a pile of infected scar tissue.
And me? I've been stopped by the police and asked for ID on several different occasions and my buddies at the same school never had the same happen to them. I've had a principle make a racist comment to me behind closed doors. I've been called the N-word by angry people who wanted to get under my skin in person and on the web. I've heard idiots argue that we were better off as slaves in person and in on the shit show that is the internet. Hell, there was a riot at my college after the 2012 election when a bunch of angry students marched on the Minority Student Union like every body in there had committed a crime. I had a friend become indignant when I told him not to use the N-word, he got furious and asked why I can use it and he can't. Nevermind the fact that I hate the word myself, and for all the time we spent together he never once heard me use it, but assumed that I did. I've had people express shock that I could possibly have better grades than them or be competent at what I do. I've seen capable people passed over for opportunities in a corporate workplace to the point where the only people who had not been recognized for work done just happened to be on the wrong side of the paper bag test. What a coincidence. I've gone through so much minor "I can't believe they assumed that" shit that I can't remember half of it.
That's the abbreviated version and only includes the things that I KNOW were because of skin, I have no idea what decisions were made consciously or subconsciously behind closed doors and tight lipped smiles. All of this, and I've had the privilege of leading a pretty sheltered life. I've enjoyed opportunities other people who look like me have never gotten, and I'm aware of the struggles others have had to go through because of the lottery of birth. I have been very lucky. Just because you don't see what people are protesting about doesn't mean their grievances are non-existent. I'm nowhere near fifty years old.
Make no mistake, I love my country, but I hate being talked down to by people who don't bother asking why someone could possibly feel anything less than complete adoration for it. Your "ownership" or "Claim" over this country is not stronger than generations of other people that have lived, worked, and fought to be here, and you can't tell people how to feel about the country or the flag just because you can't relate to their experiences. People over symbols any and every day.
If this came across as angry, I apologize. I've had the same conversations so many times with people who want to pretend there is no issue that it gets absolutely tiresome. Maybe you know something I don't, please explain it to me.
Second, stock art is still art to be used by other artists. Any artist using this image would still be considered to be creating art.
Again, try again.
As much as I despise Islamic ideology, that would be offensive to all Muslims, as what he is doing is just so Anti-American while he lives in a country that permits him to do that without repercussion. As much as he has the right to vandalize our flag and call it "art," I also have the right to criticize him (fair use). So all I ask is that you see my situation from my point of view before you judge the situation.
Oh my god, the level of adolescence here is astounding.
You know, some would say that you appear to be among the most childish people in this discussion.
You are basically telling me that I don't have the right to defend my nation's symbolism.
That’s the beauty of free speech — the same rules apply for everybody, if you have a right to defend a flag, then others have a right to shit on it.
I was just telling this guy that what he was doing was offensive, and you're defending him.
Of course Marcus is aware that some people are going to consider this image offensive — that was the whole point of this photo. You haven’t informed him about anything he didn’t know already. And, guess what, artists have a right to make intentionally offensive images if they so choose.
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww did I made the flag cwy?
Awww another one that insists that people need to move if they wanna fix something that's broken. Typical hard right lol. Try again.
This is art, not politics. You are a narrow minded jerk. I piss on your flag. 'Cuz I'm Canadian. N'yah!
Don't take my word for it, look at them yourselves. I'm not usually eloquent, but I believe I sound pretty sound of mind compared to them.
2. I'm well aware of the double-edged sword that is free speech. But just because someone can don't always mean they should.
3. Him being offensive wasn't really the issue. If anyone had just read the disclaimer, then you'd know why it seemed like I was being prudish in the first place. The issue was that he didn't have to be an asshole with his "Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww did I made the flag cwy?" remark. So who's the bad guy here?
And why not? A flag is just a piece of cloth. It has no nerves, it cannot feel pain. I see nothing wrong with flag desecration.
Just because you can cut a kitten's throat doesn't mean you should, because a kitten can feel pain, it will suffer. Suffer as in real suffering.
Just because you can desecrate a fag doesn't mean you should, because... Why really? A piece of fabric cannot suffer. Is it because people like you will be offended and "suffer" mild discomfort upon seeing a desecrated flag? Sorry, but that's your problem. If you don't like Marcus' art, you are free not to look at it. Your complaining about the fact that you just saw something you don't like seems childish. Throughout your life you will see and hear a lot of things you don't like. You might as well start getting used to it.
did I made the flag cwy?
You, sir, obviously had no qualms with you posed for this. Your mother must be so proud.
My mom and dad would probably be amused; they know me pretty well and are as anti-nationalist as I am.
Do go complain about all the other people who wear flag stuff, then come back and tell me how naughty I was to gird up my goat-smelling balls in the flag. Fortunately, I didn't have to go to the bathroom, because if I'd used the damn thing to wipe my butt with (like the president does) I might have blocked my plumbing and that would have been awkward.
So, what, are you calling the American flag a sign of white supremacy? This is the kind of false equivalence that many disillusioned, ignorant, and nihilistic left-wing millennials with no sense of respect or pride for their country willingly believe in. Nice to know that you and your folks are proud anti-Americans, and yet you live in a country that permits you the right to behave as such without repercussions. I personally find that even more disheartening.
Lastly, this wasn't a complaint. You didn't bother reading the disclaimer. I have as much disdain for other people who misuse our nation's flag as you did, so I tried to explain in a manner that wasn't condescending or preachy. But, indicating at your unpleasant remark at the end, I sense that your mind is already made up and this argument is going nowhere. And to think I added you to my watch list.
FWI, President Trump did not wipe his butt with an American flag. If that was meant to sound metaphorical, then you did a poor job indicating that. But it is nice to know that you would willing do it: "Fortunately, I didn't have to go to the bathroom, because if I'd used the damn thing to wipe my butt with (like the president does) I might have blocked my plumbing and that would have been awkward."
Nice to know that you and your folks are proud anti-Americans, and yet you live in a country that permits you the right to behave as such without repercussions. I personally find that even more disheartening.
A country, which does not allow its citizens to feely criticize it, is called a “tyranny” or “totalitarian dictatorship” and so on. If USA didn’t allow people to criticize it and openly express dissatisfaction, then it would be an even worse place to live in than it already is.
Of course you are free to love your country, you are also free to feel proud about it. But other people are free to dislike USA.
By the way, I live in Europe and I consider USA to be a pretty bad country to live in. Pretty much every European Union country is better. I certainly see no reason why USA should be sacrosanct and above criticism.
You can mostly blame the SJWs, the Feminists, the PC and Cultural Appropriation movement, and the Liberal media for that.
2. I don't really know much about the EU to make such a judgment, other than that Poland and some of the Eastern Blocs despise it, so I'll leave it at that.
"And you, sir, obviously had no qualms with you posed for this. You're mother must be so proud."
Don't start a sentence with "and."
"with you posted for this" ... what?
"You're" - yeah, that's a typical one. It should be "your."
Again, to reiterate what he already stated: "don't criticize someone else's language or spelling, when your criticism contains grammatical errors of its own."
