:note: My stock does not belong in the public domain. The entire contents of my gallery are subject to full copyright law. There are certain restrictions on using my stock, so please read carefully what you can/can not do with it/use it for.

:note: My stock is not meant to be used 'as is' (includes minor edits). You need to make significant alterations to my original stock so it is clear your artwork is a derivative, unless you're using it as reference only in which case you can copy it exactly if you want.


FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?

DeviantArt - when you use my stock, you must either credit me with a link back to my profile Esmeralda-stock, or with a link back to stock used in the description.

- a link back to my profile Esmeralda-stock or stock used is required. If link posting is not possible, credit me in a text form, e.g.,"Waterfall stock by Esmeralda-stock on DeviantArt".


Each time you use my stock, you must notify me either by sending me a Note with a link to your artwork, or by commenting on the stock used, or by simply making sure you credited me properly so the new DeviantArt's Mentions system can take care of automatic notification.


Only members of  DeviantArt  are able to download and use my stock, but you are, of course, free to post artwork using my stock on other websites, too (your website/blog, social media, etc.).

:check: photomanipulation, mixed-media, matte painting, misc. other digital art
:check: reference for traditional/digital art drawings, paintings, etc.
:check: tutorials (but you may not redistribute the stock image(s) used, link to the original source instead)

:X: claim my stock as your own
:X: redistribute or sell my stock ‘as is’, as part of a pre-made/pre-cut stock, etc.
:X: make minor alterations to my stock (color change/dodging/burning/touch-ups/etc.) and submit it to photography gallery (you did not take the photo!)
:X: use in racist/animal cruelty/political/derogatory/fetish artworks
:X: use in artwork that contains images that are not valid stock/copyrighted images you don't have permission to use (celebrity photos, random photos taken off of Google, etc.) 


If you followed all the stock terms of use, no permission required:
:check: sell prints on your artwork using my stock on DeviantArt
:check: sell prints of your artwork using my stock through your print shop(s) on print-on-demand websites such as Society6, RedBubble, InPrnt, DBH, etc.
:check: sell prints of your artwork using my stock through your Etsy Shop, Big Cartel, social media, in person, etc.
:check: free commercial use of my Ps Brushes only

Warning sign  For any other commercial use of my stock images in your artwork, you will need my written permission first! E.g., e-book covers, book/album covers, publications, etc. A small commercial use fee may apply in certain cases.

Before any commercial use of my stock, contact my by Note and share some details about your project/intended use. I give permission in most cases. If you're required to pay a small fee, you'll make a one-time payment through Paypal and that's it. :)

The exact fee is determined for each case individually:
  • no fee - in case I determine my stock wasn't used in significant enough way etc.
  • $2 - $4 for stock image used as reference only
  • $2 - $8 for other (photomanipulation, mixed-media, etc.)

:note: Some of my architecture, landmark, monument, statue, etc. stock might also be a subject to 3rd party intellectual property. This means you'll have to do a little research on the subject of stock like that first to check if commercial use showing that subject is allowed and then ask me for further permission. E.g., commercial use of my Sagrada Familia stock image is not allowed, only editorial use. ( has a long, but not whole, list of places/landmarks/etc. and the acceptable uses of photos showing those subjects.)


If you purchase any of my Premium Content/Exclusive Stock, or you win it in a contest, please follow the stock terms of use found in the description of each stock like that.

If you have any questions or something isn't clear enough, feel free to ask in the comments or send me a Note! If you need urgent response, note me at Wicked-Illusion.

I was hoping to use some of your reptile stock as prints as a raffle prize for my friend for his cancer fundraiser benefit so he can continue treatment! We plan on holding it next month so if your able to get back ahold of me before February that'd be amazing!

If you would like to know more on him cause I know there are scammed out there Dx here is my journal which has his fb and his go fund me page which has ongoing updates on how he is doing.

Thank you a ton for taking your time to read this dear and thank you again!

So, basically, you want to make prints of my reptile stock 'as is' to give out as a prize for the lucky winners who participated in the fundraiser?

Since it's for the good cause, go ahead.
