Hello! Since I got my first hand full of watchers here (yay! ), I would like to say "hello" to everyone and explain my mission a little deeper. Well... "mission", if you want to call it like that...
So first of all thank you very much for showing interest in my humble stock account. I know that I do not offer much yet but the idea for all this actually started yesterday, so everything is brand new still and needs to grow.
About my stock / my goals:
First of all - the rules can be found in the description of every stock that I share here and also on my main page, right at the top. If you have questions, feel free to ask me.
With my work I hope to fill a gap within all the provided stock pictures in the world wide web. It all started because I was having this discussion about art theft on my main account and I talked to people who had different opinions about it. Some people told me, they have taken work of mine and used it for their own avatars and signatures without asking me before. Peeps, I so apprecaite this honesty! Thank you so much for telling me (and taking down my work) as you did not only apologize but you also have shown me that many many people have no idea about where art theft starts, what copyright is and that so many people do not do it knowingly and without wanting to be a thief. So I went a little further and talked to a friend yesterday in my lunch break. We had a coffee and I asked her how she treats pictures that she finds in the internet. Same mentality here - it is in the web, I can take and use it. When I explained the international copyright laws to her, she was absolutely shocked and very grateful for me giving her links of pages which sell pictures or have them for free without restrictions.
I am not saying that "not knowing it better" is an excuse for art theft. All I am saying is that a lot of people really do not know it and take what is there, especially when the free resources in a special field are very very rare to find... which leads me to the next point:
Imagine you are one of those people who searches the web for illustrations that could fit their roleplaying character. You know about copyright and you are looking for free resources. Your character which you are having in one or maybe several roleplaying forums is a female cute leven lady... well, then you are lucky as you will find many resources for that if you know where to search for it. But then - your character is male, maybe a Drow elf or of demonic heritage even? Try looking for resources again and you will find that there is for sure not as many left now.
Now you see where this is going... since my very own personal work which include my very own personal roleplaying characters only contain male figments, I know what I am talking about. I am in the lucky position that I do not need resource images for illustrating my guys... but others are not.
So my goal is to fill this gap which truly exists among stock images and I would like to get a little but ever growing catalogue of resources for this little field. I know there is a need for that. I know, there is interest in that... otherwise people would not continue to steal my very own persnal work and horribly chop it for their own illustrations in RPG forums.
As I already said, there is not much yet. But I will constantly work on this stock account, creating new stock images for usage all over the internet if desired. So far I got started with resources for avatars / profile pictures and I will upload some more of that, different races of characters, different face shapes, hair stylels, eye colors, things like that. The next step is some full body illustrations with armor, weapons and / or magical effects. Since all those pictures are meant to be for internet use only, they do not have super big sizes as this is not needed at all. Also I am grateful for suggestions - what is desired, what do you need? I cannot promise to fullfill every wish... but I am happy to be shown directions, to get to know where it lacks the most pictures.
Thank you very much for reading all this! Sorry for all the typos...And thank you for your feedback!
