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):…




Fine Art America:…

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!

Plans for next year....

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 19, 2014, 5:35 PM
Well, here we are near the end of another year. Whew, this one's been a roller coaster ride. A lot of personal problems, but on the other side of the coin, I sang in Carnegie Hall in New York City and am in a really good relationship (in part because of the trip). So, a good year in total. How's your year been.

Anyway, I thought I'd share what I have in mind for 2015 artistically.

1) The biggest thing is I'm planning on upgrading to a better computer and having internet set up at home. I've not been able to do a lot of updating here and on my website (or anywhere else really) because I haven't been able to get online as often. I'm hoping getting set up at home will fix that.
And, just between you and me, sitting at a McDonald's for hours on end til works has kinda lost it's charm.

2) Expand and continue to grow digitally. I have to digital line arts currently and plan on doing more tracings and digital re-colorings next year, as well as hopefully some more original works (both drawn and photomaniped) done. I hope to learn more about how to do manipulations better (going back to that first point, I'll have more time to look at tutorials). I hope not to abandon pencil and paper drawing entirely, but I can do so much more digitally than I can with color pencils.

3) Finding a local print shop and having prints more readily available (or having failed that, get a good quality printer myself). If that's successful, I may start setting up at some of the local festivals here in Kentucky. Not sure if my style is sell-able, but it would be good to find out.

4) It would be nice to do a bit of painting (traditional). Also, I want to learn how to do watercolors.

I think that's a good start on the new year. Of course, I'll keep you guys up do date on where I'm at with these.

Well, I'll talk to ya'll later. If I don't see you til after, Have a Merry Christmas (or a HAppy Holidays...whatever your Holiday is) and a Happy New Year. :-)
