3. While I can change the color of an image, not everything is feasible, please inquire first.

Does making a logo/poster that you're just going to post on DA (not make into a print or anything) count as Commercial Use?

Hello and I love your work. I am interested in using AirbrushedWings1 - White.png for commercial use, if possible and agrees with my pocket book. I am creating a logo for a non-profit organization for low income families/individuals. I did read above and hopefully this comment does not frustrate you if I didn't read the commercial usage of your work. Thank you kindly and respectfully yours.

Hello, 

Thank you for your interest in my wings stock, I'm glad that you like my images. 

Per your request to use Airbrushed Wings 1 - White for a logo, how does $8.00 sound?
If that is all right, its payable to PayPal katie_litchfield@yahoo.com and if at all possible, I'd like to see the logo.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but if we use any of your stock are we allowed to edit the colors slightly (like the saturation, hue, brightness, etc..)? Or would you prefer them to be left as is?

Hello,

It would have been a more appropriate question for my rules journal. No matter, I answer questions no matter where they're left. My stock is free to use in any manner so long as some sort of change/addition is made to it and I am credited appropriately and the use is personal. Basically: Anything with photomanipulation is okay.

For a little research before answering your question I took a quick visit to your gallery and your work is wonderful indeed. One thing I noticed though is that you've been pulling images from places like Google and wallpapers so I wanted to let you know that these aren't legitimate stock issues and it is potential copyright infringement to use these works that aren't designated as stock, I wouldn't want you to have to take any of your wonderful images down. help.deviantart.com/306/ help.deviantart.com/157/

Thank you for the reply and so sorry my question was in the wrong place.

And I'm going to try and dig to find the proper sources for the model images, I believe most of the ones I have are from the same wallpaper website. Thank you for explaining that to me, I appreciate it.

Have a wonderful day,

Hi! I am working on a dust jacket for a set of books for an author. All the current book covers are done, but we want a new look for the jacket. Only 10 will be printed and none sold. They are all gifts. How would you handle this if we wanted to use your wings on this jacket? These will not be distributed commercially. Thank you!

Hello,

Seeing as it is going to be free (given as a gift) and only ten printed, you may use them free of charge so long as I get to see the image, and perhaps a small credit if possible.

May I use this image (blond updo) for my daughter's hair for Cinderella?  Non-profit…just a fun project I'm working on and promised her I'd make her Cinderella.  Also, if I can use them, can I remove the side rolls?  Just want the bun.  Thank you.  :)

My images are free for all non-commercial use so long as I am notified and given credit in the form of a link back to my stock.

For commercial use I sell the wings for a fee per set based on the intended use.

That's fine, it's always good to ask questions, I don't mind at all.

It depends on the set of wings, usually between $3.00 and $5.00.

I would love to use your dual wings black thy-darkest-hour.deviantart.co…. I would attach them to a jumping doberman to use as a banner on a page on the Dallas Air Dogs website. It might be used as a logo on another website or on flyers. If flyers are used I believe they would number between 100-500. I think an appropriate price is $25. I would send it to you PayPal account. Does this sound fair. Please contact me at blondebasenji@yahoo.com. Your artwork is beautiful. I look forward to hearing from you.

what would you think about having your fairy wing designs appear in a game?  I am currently working on a game and made a group to help out with its creation :)  PhoenixsWorld  I'm thinking about maybe 10-15 sets of fairy wings ... give or take a few

How much would that cost though? It'll be for commercial use since I plan to publish the game when its done ... eventually.

Hmm, I'm not sure and since you know your publishing plans, do you mind if I ask first what you think would be fair?

kvdolan Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Well, its all still very much "up in the air" right now, we are still in the early stages of planning. The way I have my group set up is that anyone who participates in the creation of my game will get a cut of the profits when it sells, mostly because I don't have any money right now. So until I get a job (hopefully soon) I can't pay anyone up front for their work. So I can add you to my list of participants or wait until I get a job and pay for the wings when I can. 

As for how much for your wings (if I wait until I get a job) I see that your wing commissions are 700 points so in $ that would be... $8.50 , $8.75  something like that per wing set.

That all sounds okay with me, so please do feel free to add me to your list of participants. I very much hope that you get it, I think you'd do an amazing job with it.
