MY ART USAGE PERMISSIONS


This is fine with me:

  • Using my art for personal things (desktops, screensavers, cards, etc.)

  • Using my art for slide shows / YouTube, but ONLY if credit is given (saying that this is my artwork) and if you don't pretend the characters to be yours (like "this is my wolf pack" and then showing my character drawings).

  • Using anonymous characters as avatars, for roleplay, etc.
    "Anonymous" = unnamed, random characters I drew, that don't belong to me or other people; If you're unsure about a character, please just ask me.

  • Drawing my characters / fanart (please give credit that the character belongs to me). It's also fine for group pictures.

  • Coloring sketches of random / anonymous characters I uploaded - for fun / non commercial use. If uploaded again, credit for the original sketch must be given. Sketches with copyrighted characters require permission first.

  • Using artwork of mine I offer "free for use" (coloring pages, icons, etc.)

  • Printing out my pictures for personal (non commercial) use
    (if you want a proper quality print, please ask me about prints)

  • Using my art for those Signature Tag Groups (if credit is given).
    For detailed information about this, please click here.

  • "Using my art as reference" - This is a difficult topic:

    I usually won't say anything if someone "traces" a picture of mine (except paid commissions, those are never allowed to be used in any way) for practise purpose AND gives proper credit for the original art. However, I very much discourage you from copying! If you really want to learn how to draw, I have written down some tips about drawing here. Also tracing shall not become a cheap way for getting free art.


  "Giving credit" means: "Original art by xxx" [name or link to website]




Please don't! What's NOT OK:

  • Using my art for anything commercial (without agreement)

  • Using my personal characters (Tani, Savoy, Daiquiri, WeuUkoo Wolves)
    - not for roleplay, not as avatar / user pictures, not as icons, etc.

  • Using copyrighted characters (that belong to other people) for anything, unless you have the owner's permission

  • Using paid commissions (I drew for others) in any way

  • Altering / Editing my pictures and signatures

  • Claiming my artwork or characters were yours (just changing a character's name or cropping off the original signature does NOT make it yours)

  • Pretending to be me - Please do not create accounts under my name. Some say imitation is flattery, but honestly I don't feel good about that.

  • Copying / Tracing my artwork without giving proper credit

  • Copying my character designs (like just changing a little detail doesn't make it a new character creation)

  • Uploading my artwork to galleries like Photobucket, MySpace, etc. Why?

  • Using my artwork in an inappropriate way (racist, political, sexual...)
