Confirmation line(s) my stock can be used as reference material, Updated the explenation on Religious stock use restrictions. 20/08/2017

READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING!!!!



Free Use


1.Credit and notification

If you use my stock in any way for any reason you MUST Credit me, If you use the following it will appear in my messages.

:devNull-Entity :  Null-Entity
Or
:iconNull-Entity : :iconnull-entity:

Don't know how to do that.here is how.
help.deviantart.com/81/

If you are posting YOUR work on other sites (FB/Tumblr) etc then you MUST Link/Notify me, And credit on the piece/in it's description.

AND if the stock work is a COLLABORATION.... THEN NOTIFY THE OTHER STOCK ARTIST(S).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2.Mediums

You are welcome to use my stock in almost any medium it helps in, be it drawing/painting/3D etc,
YES you can use my stock as a REFERENCE :)
However slight edits/colour overlays cropping etc do NOT count as a manipulation..the original image has to be altered
enough to call a new piece.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


3.What is stock and what is not?

I do other work than stock... ONLY the work in the "STOCK" folders and all the sub folders in that directory may be used as stock, do NOT use my other work as stock.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


4.Inappropriate uses/Restrictions.

Do not use my stock to create the following images:
Hate,
Fetish,
Religious ***
Pornographic,
Bases/Doll Bodies/References Sheets for others to use.
If you feel you might have an idea that is borderline then ASK...I am a very relaxed guy I just have to protect the use of my image/face.


*** As I am not a religious person I allow my stock to be used in a more classical religious context (representations of ancient religious imagery.. e.g the burning bush/jesus/mohammed/angels/the devil etc,) however I will not allow my stock to be used for any modern active sects/flyers or material related to or advertising any one church/house of worship that is an active instituation).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5.Restricted Stock.

Restrictied stock is that in the "Restricted Stock" folder, anything in this folder is stock taken at exhibitions or events/places wherethe copyright owner/organisers have strict rules on the use of the prographs taken.

Nothing in this folder can be used for commercial work by you Or ME, and some images may have special or even further restrictions so READ the rules
for EACH IMAGE first.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6.Distribution

My stock is ONLY on my DA account, and is NOT under any condition to be redistributed or posted elsewhere unless by me.
If you want to share my stock then link back to the images or my account.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7.The Right To Remove My Stock From Your Work

If ALL my rules are not followed I reserve the right to have you remove my stock from your work/remove the work completely.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Requests


I take commissions for pose stock (Or basic every day clothing/Props please ask first).

To clarify what "Exclusive" means in the below, any images not exclusive will at some point go up on DA 
after the requester has had adequate time to use them.

1-9 Images (A Pack) £5
1-9 Images Exclusive (A Pack) (I.E. They will not go up on DA they will be for you only). £8

Exclusive packs are automatically cleared for commercial/Commission use by the person who commissioned me,
But still have to follow my rules and restrictions.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Commercial/Print/Commission Use


Commercial use counts as any work for gain be it paid/points or contests with sizable prizes.

The bottom line is if you are looking to make money using my stock, then we NEED to talk first.

All fees from commercial are put back into helping fund more equipment, props/clothing etc.

Individual Commercial Use.
For smaller or one piece commercial/commission uses I charge a small fee of a few £.

OR

Blanket Fee.
The alternative for heavier use of my stock is the blanket fee of £20. (Currently works out at less than 1.5 pence per image).
This covers the use of my stock past/present and future in any commercial/commission work (With restrictions, See Below).

The above is intended for people creating art for individuals or clients where the end result is sold to them as is:
Posters.
Fan Art.
Custom Characters etc.
If The Work Is Digital/E-Book/Digital download album etc.. Commercial use IS ALLOWED under the Blanket/Individual Fee, I just ask for notification first.

Restrictions (Regarding work for a Client/3rd Party to re-sell).

Restrictions apply to the intended resale of work created from my stock (I.E Album art/Book Covers).

If the work created to be used in physical print/hard copy or on/in something the 3rd party intends to sell on I need to be consulted
mostly for to agree on the subject matter, crediting and usage, at most a small additional fee if it's a large volume/use.

This applies to things like
Book Covers
Album Art
Artwork For Campaigns/Organisations
Designs For Merchandise
T-Shirt Designs
Etc.

When In Doubt.. Ask

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
:D Go nuts!!

When you say 3D art, does that mean we can use your stock as reference for, for instance, Sims 3 poses, with the credit towards you given/linked?

That is correct, as my stock is mostly used for reference (hence the lack of clothing :P ) if you use my stock for reference/posing I would simply ask for a stock credit/link :)

Does nudity on its own count as porographic? all genetalia would be properly censored. I'm asking because I'm gonna start on a work and one of your refs would be helpful :)  It's not meant to be suggestive either. For contex it's someone stripped of literally all there belongings and left locked in a cell with only a knife to be tested if they can escape. Sorry for going on and on I just don't want to break a rule and bet blocked, flagged etc.

Hello,

 Just a quick question, I am interested in using one of your photographs as a reference, however the sketch would be a 'skeleton' image which would be heavily developed and changed into a character that does not resemble your client. Is this okay, and what are the policies on this form of referencing?

Edit: Although I would not be making money on this, If I were allowed to draw this roughly and loosely, the final product would be shown to someone who would commission separate new works in future (with the current drawing being used as a 'show me your work process and final line art' kind of thing. Is this also okay, to simply show my work based primarily on your photograph? 

Many thanks,

Bryony

I am not sure I 100% follow what you are trying to ask but..

You can used my stock for as much/little refernece as possible but I would ask for stock credit if you do..

Provided the piece you create is not for sale/commercial use then my stock is free to use.


What I don;t understand if your second part, but as above, if you use my stock as reference, I ask you follow my rules, however someone liking one piece as an exmaple of your work and you earning subsequent commissions has no bearing on my stock unless again you want to use my stock in the commissions :).

If I understand your comment then I wish you all the best with your "Example" piece :)

Thank you very much, I am sorry to have confused you, my wording isn't the best.. But thank you for your answer!

Below is the piece I was talking about, it isn't being sold, and the only resemblance is the pose. 
Many thanks for allowing me to reference your photograph, and to your model too!

Hello there,

Since you do good images, I'd like to do sketches of them. This is only for personal growth and practice so I'm not sure entirely how to credit you other than writing the stock image name and your username. Is this fine for my use and would any costs be involved?

If I do upload the sketches, I will put your username in and refer you as stated in the rules above.

Hi,
You are more than welcome to use/sketch my stock :)
Unless you are posting/displaying work created from my stock there is no need to put my name/account ref on them etc.

In short provided you credit if you ever post them anywhere (as well as following my rules on contect etc) then go for it, and unless you plan to see work that uses my stock then there is no cost/charge.. free for free use :)

I want to make sure, but is it okay to use one of your stocks for reference when making a gore picture?  I would love to use this:  Kneeling Foetal 01 by Null-Entity  stock in particular, but there would be a lot of cuts and pastel-colored gore.  as well as the legs being cut off at the knees.  I wanted to double check to make sure that you would be fine with it.

I am generally ok with gore as long as it's not towards the torture porn end of the spectrum :P so yeah go for it, if you still feel it's questionable link me to a sketch perhaps before you go any further. :)

Do these rules only go for manipulations and referencing with grids or tracing? Or do I have to link back to you every time I look at these poses to check my anatomy and such?

Null-Entity Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
The long and short of it is I ask you to be honest...
If you use my stock for any reference/tracing/a manip then yes.... or it comes in handy enough you used it for more than say a quick glance and you feel it helped enough to credit me... then please do.
Considering I offer all my stock free for non commercial use I don't think it's to much to ask.. but at the end of the day I am relying upon your honestly..
