:bulletred:  I do not allow my stock to be used to make mock/ hypothetical/ premade/ personal book/album covers or other media - please contact me to discuss your project before you use my stock.

:bulletred: I do not allow commercial use of my restricted location stock due to the fees involved in gaining any necessary property releases - which can be exorbitantly expensive. You are welcome to contact me to discuss it via email as above, however please be aware that I am likely to refuse all requests for commercial use on my restricted location stock because of costs involved in getting a property release on top of my fees which I am not in control of.

Hello Elandria,

May I ask you for a prior permission?
I really love your stocks, all of them are so beautiful <3
Here's my story : I want to make book covers with your stocks, but I'm really not sure who's going to buy this lolz, so I ask you a permission to use them first, and when someone buy it, I will contact and give you a fee then. Is that ok for you ? Hope to see you reply soon !

Kind Regards ,
Tri

I would like to speak to you about your terms more clearly when you have a moment. Please email me at aingealiciawrites@gmail.com. I very much like your images and needed to clear something with you prior to using them.

Thank you,

Aingealicia, if you wish to discuss my terms of use please either note me through DA, or use the email address provided in terms of use above.  Comments quickly disappear out of sight in my message center and I just can't promise to email you because to put it bluntly, I am terrible at remembering to do things, and have very limited time right now.  By all means email me or note me, as they are easier to keep track of :)

Theres a lot of stockers who don't like horse manips.  Its more about adding credit to the image if its being used off site on hworse and stuff thats the important point lol

I'm pretty sure this question has already been asked, but there are so many pages of questions...I just can't read them all. :( By "premades" on your unrestricted stock, does that also refer to premade backgrounds? The stock images would be completely altered, and other stock images would be added to create a whole new place altogether.
Reply
:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2013  Professional General Artist
Yes this refers to premade backgrounds.  I don't allow any of my stock, restricted or unrestricted to be redistributed as "stock" or "premade background stock" or "pre cut out stock" at all.

What do you mean by an RP Avatar?
Reply
:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2013  Professional General Artist
Role Play Avatars are usually portraits used by people who play old fashioned or online role playing games, taking images of real people or doing minor edits and using them as the picture of their character.

Ah. I THINK I know what you mean.
What if we used your picture as a reference for drawing someones character from a story they are writing?

:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2013  Professional General Artist
The end result need to be significantly altered from the original to make a unique look and feel so its just just a photo of me with a few alterations or colour changes.  Pose references for traditional are ok but again the resutling work should be original and unique.

Reply
:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2013  Professional General Artist
As long as there is a significant change in the final work (adding other elements to the background image will suffice) then you are welcome to use my stock in your manipulation with the usual credits and notification with the proviso against being used on horse sims and RPGs

Hi there,

I was wondering. You say that horse RPG site layouts are not allowed. Are regular pieces that are not used as layouts and properly credited allowed on sites like Ponybox.com? If not I understand, I just wanted to make sure I didn't break any rules.
Reply
:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013  Professional General Artist
Thats fine, but if possible please can you add credits on the work, other people have a habit of "borrowing" pony manips for their own use :XD:

Oh, I meant to ask. For future reference, may I use your other works there as long as I credit and copyright?

Elandria Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013  Professional General Artist
It really depends, some of my photos are more limited in terms of what I can allow, due to where they were taken at, so if its something unusual best to check first, but normal pony manips are ok with credits, as per my usual terms of use :)
