Hello, welcome to Pulling-Stock, an extension of pullingcandy.
I'm going to answer every question I can right here, as it's the easiest!
Do NOT just take my stock and post it beside another picture, or...change it to sepia or black and white and then throw it up as your own. I give these to you, no matter how good or bad they are, to use to do something unique with them, not to just do what I could do and take full credit for. Manipulate them or don't post them. Thank you.
Please do not use my stock for manipulations depicting suicide or rape. I am aware of these subjects, I feel for the people, and I am knowledgable and compassionate but that is not what I post stock for.
Will you take requests?
-Yes I can take requests. Just drop a note to me and we'll chat!
What do I have to do to use your stock?
-Nothing much. All I ask if for a link to the finished product and credit. The one thing you may not do is change the color or saturation and post it as a finished work. These are here for you to use with your imagination. Changing it to sepia / black&white and posting it as your own means you didn't work on it, which means it's still technically what I posted, please don't do that!
Can I sell finished deviations with your stock included in them?
-Yes. I have no problem with you producing a print of the work made with my stock. However, I am not okay with you taking a piece, changing it to sepia, adding words to it, and claiming it as your own. Manipulate it or please don't use it, for sale or otherwise.
Do I HAVE to credit you?
-Absolutely. As with all stock artists (or most), use of my stock requires credit. I don't make money supplying people with stock, it's the least you could do. If you feel that you do not need to supply a link, which is a quick copy/paste, then you may also feel free to not use the stock.
Lots of your stock has children in it - can I smash them with a hammer?
-No. You may not. All children related stock may be freely used within reason for horror/macabre related manipulation and reference, but I do not need to see them being harassed in an adult manner. Please use your head before using stock, ANY stock, with children in it in such a way that it would constitute harm coming to them. If I find any related deviations created that harm my children, I will ask for them to be removed.
Can I use your stock off Deviant Art?
-Yes. The only thing I would ask for is a link to see it.
Can I use something from your main gallery and directly manipulate it in to something else?
-Absolutely not. As I have started using this account for stock, some of the photographs are fairly close to what is in my main gallery, but that does not make my main gallery stock. I have given permission to some folks to use my main gallery artwork for their own work, sometimes I am nice enough to do that, but it required written permission from me. Don't assume you can just take what's there and use it, please. That work was done by me.
Thank you and have fun!
just for the record. Can I sell my work made with one of you stocks for a bookcover?
