:iconkirilee:kirilee ways in on stock copyrights & the use of off site stock providers:…
Please remember the use of images found in Google search Queries are NOT Stock! Any website posting images without credit for photographer or copyright owner is not stock. In other words if it's a photograph of a celebrity and you did not personally take the photograph you shouldn't use it as a reference for a drawing or painting or digital artworks! Especially if the new work looks significantly like the original. I have seen a LOT of these here ;( apparently DA is letter their own rules slide ;(

As per US government Copyrights Derivative and compilations including my Work are Copyrightable by the creator of the derivative or compilation because "the resulting work as a whole constitutes
a new work." Please government document on Derivative and Compiled artworks: "Copyright in Derivative Works and Compilations" from the United States Copyright Offices.

For those that question my watermarks and copyright notices, I want to explain two simple things. Many of my stock providers disallow commercial work and ask for licensing fees if their work is used in commercial work, which includes but is not limited to album, cd, and book covers, advertizing, games and many more things for which artists make a profit. Secondly, I do not sell my own work thus I believe it is unfair for others to make a profit of my work. This is work. I do not simply cut and paste stock images together and say its done. I take time to blend colors, saturation, tones, light & shadows, create and add textures as well other techniques to create my artwork. Please respect my work, process, and all stock providers by not using my work for your own endeavors. Thank You.
