I know my art isn't stellar, but if you want to use it for stuff, here are a few guidelines I ask people to follow:
What you CAN'T use my art for
* commercial websites
* commercial printing projects
* anything to do with porn
* anything to do with illegal activities ("illegal" as classified under both U.S. and Canadian law)
* reposting and taking credit for making yourself
So, for example, if you're making, say, a Zelda fan site, you can use my art. That's not really a commercial use website because you're never going to make that site into a huge profit-making enterprise.
If you use my art, CREDIT ME PLZ
You can cite this deviantart account as my website.
You DON'T have to ask me for permission to use my fan art</u>
It's fan art, so I don't really care. I'd rather you not have to waste your time asking me about it. Just don't use it in any of the ways listed above. For example, don't make prints of them and sell them on the street or something (I mean, good luck with that, since the versions I post online are too small to make good prints anyway...)
You DO have to ask me permission to use my original art</u>
I just don't want my original art being misrepresented. Plus, it belongs to me, unlike fan art, which is, in all fairness, a copyright owned by another person or entity.
For art that I've done as a commission or request for someone else, you have to ask the person(s) who commissioned/requested me for permission
The majority of the commissions I have completed so far are of characters invented by others. Therefore, I do not own them and do not have full right to grant you use of artwork I've made involving them.
With the requests, gifts, and commissions I have drawn, I have made an effort to include the name and deviantart account of each individual. Please do not bother them unecessarily.
IF YOU DO USE MY ART</u>... can I see what you've done with it? I'm really curious. :3
Thanks a lot guys,
