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

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. (Shutterstock.com has a long, but not whole, list of places/landmarks/etc. and the acceptable uses of photos showing those subjects.)PREMIUM CONTENT
