You do NOT need my permission to use them in your manips or to post your work outside DA. Prints on DA are absolutely fine. I am also very happy for them to be used as references for traditional artists.
Link back to me in the description and notify me that you have used my stock (via comment on my Profile or on the photo you have used - please do not note me as it has been pointed out that DA cannot access my notes for verification of notification).
Do NOT repost my stock anywhere and claim it as yours - these stocks are produced entirely from my own photographs and are copyrighted, they are NOT to be uploaded to Wallpaper sites and don't hotlink to them from any other site. If you link to them I will make a formal complaint and issue a DMCA notice. DO NOT include my photos or PNGs in any scrapbooking kits - they are here for reference and manipualtions purposes and I regard this as theft and a violation of my copyright.
You can make premade backgrounds from my stock I reserve the right to add any piece of art created from your background to my favourites list as My Stock Used and to feature these works of art in my Journal. Do not create PNGs from my stock - anyone who would like to share a PNG they have created for a manip from my stock - feel free to send it back to me for publishing hehe.
If you are going to use my stock in anything commercial note me, I'm not going to say no - I just want to know - so that something doesn't come as a surprise and I'm not going to ask you for money either - it's YOUR art..........if you can't contact me via note (I may be away) then please go ahead and use the stock in your commercial project but drop me a note anyway.
The same rules apply to my brushes - totally unrestricted - do not upload them to any other site or hotlink to them. I don't mind if you link to the deviation from your website but no hotlinks.

I reserve the right to ban any person from using my stock - I offer it free of charge but it doesn't mean it isn't copyrighted.

I'd like to thank all those people who fav my work - due to time pressure I can't say thank you to you all, but it is truly appreciated. If you comment you will always get a reply
if this reads badly i.e. harshly I apologise - it conforms to the policy laid down by DeviantArt - i.e. legalise should not be polite, you can see the Journal here: evelivesey.deviantart.com/jour…
