Rules of use for the use of stock images

I'll have these posted on my stock images' description as well. These are just a starting point...I'll update as needed. This applies mostly to the the images\photos in the Stock folder in my gallery, but apply to all my gallery, just in case an image in one of my other gallery catches your eye (and imagination.... :-) )

Just a few do s and don't s


1) Comment on my main page, stock folder or note me ahead of time with a link to which picture you want to use.

2) Please credit me (link or icon) and put the link to the photo you used in the description of your work.

3) Make sure you also comment my main page the link to your finished work so I can check it out and more than likely fav it. :-)

4) If your wanting to use my stock for commercial reasons (book covers and so forth) or for a reference for an drawing\art class project\sketching, etc. please discuss it with me first (more than likely I'll ok it....I just want a heads up and to see the finished work :-)

5) If there is a photo you want to use but is too small or has other issues, note me and I'll see what I can do to make it usable for you.

6) While I'm on the subject, I do have other photos\superheros I created in the other folders. If you wish to draw (or even write about or cosplay one of my original heroes), contact me with a link to what you're wanting to use and why. More than likely I'll OK it. If I do allow it, all I ask is that you credit me.

7) Most importantly, be creative and have fun with it.


1) Do not use simple overlays and filter or touch up the pic and then claim my stock as your own. You'll be prohibited from any future use of my stock.

2) Please don't use my stock to make premade backgrounds.

3) Please do not use my stock for pornographic\rape\massively gory work (sensuality or a bit of the macabre\dark fantasy is fine, just keep it tasteful, okay).

4) DO NOT USE MY STOCK IN ANYWAY THAT DISCRIMINATES AGAINST PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT RACES, GENDERS, GENDER IDENTITY, RELIGIONS AND SO FORTH. OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE BANNED FROM MY STOCK AND I WILL DO EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO HAVE ANY WORK LIKE THAT USING MY STOCK REMOVED!! For example, any of my stock used to affirm your faith, gender, gender identity, etc is fine. If it puts down other faiths, genders and so forth, re-read the rule!!. There's enough hatred in the world as it is....don't use my pics to promote more of it!


I plan on using these myself and thought I'd offer them for other artists to use as well. If it turns out most people like and want to use my photos for stocks, I may break down and set up a separate stock account.

However, if doing this causes more trouble than it's worth (ie, usage of my stock is constantly abused), I'll delete the folder and just use my pics myself or just close, close friends (I'm not trying to be mean, I've just heard the horror stories and don't have time for that kinda grief).

Thank you. Now get creative!!! :D

Just a comic book geek who likes to draw things, especially fantasy and comics. I also sing with the Lexington Singers and work to try (note I said TRY) to afford doing these.

You can also find me on:

Facebook (personal):

Facebook (Artist Page):…


Or feel free to check out my website.

Feel free to comment on anything you see here (please, keep it constructive critisism...I already know I'm no Picasso, thank you... :-) ).

If you see a line art you'd like to color, a OC of mine you'd like to draw or cosplay, or anything like that, as long as you get my permission (ie, just ask me) and credit me on the original, then in most cases I probably will let you do so. Just note me first, and we'll discuss it. I don't bite. ;-)

Hope you enjoy the show!

A friend's fight is almost over...

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 15, 2014, 4:55 PM
I may be on and off a bit the next few days. I have a concert I'm singing in Saturday, which is in tribute to long time arranger, composer, jazz musician  and all around musical genius, Jay Flippin. It'd been planned like that from the start of the season, but it might have a different meaning.

You see, several months ago, he had been diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer. He's been fighting it since, but it's looking like the fight may be over. They've called Hospice in and are saying he might not last the weekend. He was looking forward to playing and hearing this concert coming up. He has touched so many lives as a professer at Morehead, as well as the Lexington, KY (if not the whole state) music and arts community. I know he's made a huge difference in my life, both musically and as a friend.

Anyway, I just want to thank everybody for the faves and let you know I'll try to fav (or if time really gets crunched, save in a message folder for less crazier days) as much as I can today and Fri. And if you have a moment and wouldn't mind saying a though or prayer for Jay and his family, I'd be greatful.


Update: 10\16\14

Jay passed away peacefully and in no pain this morning. A great man that I am going to miss immensely. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers.
