The Survival Road Contest!
Our first affiliate contest starts today!
If you're a member of Stewed-Tomatoes and/or ManipulateThis, you can enter the contest from either group;however, you can only have a total of 2 entries in the contest.
I always include this information with our challenges and contests because it is very important to me.
There are more and more pre-cut out stock for us to use now than there were eleven years ago when I started at deviantArt; AND there are a many more stock accounts that have 3D Rendered stock.
:bulletred: FIRST, Make Sure That The Cut Outs Are Legitimate Stock, not photos that the deviant is redistributing illegally. You do not want to contribute to someone's rights being infridged upon.
:bulletred: NEXT, we at ManipulateThis are Traditional Photomanipulators who use photo stock: However, it is okay to use 3D Rendered

Book cover designers value Author safety
While seeing a lot of wonderful and inspirational work in art and book cover design, I am also seeing a lot of creative common licensed stock (That I am VERY familiar with due to 10 years of digital art and being a member of a LOT of art and stock communities).
What I AM seeing does not add up… I am seeing creative commons licensed stock from websites such as deviant art, that do have restrictions and even require PAYMENT for publication use, used for premade covers. Payment from DA artists can range from $50 – $1000 for use of their stock in publication. It all varies on the use and print run. Yet some cover designers are selling their covers for $30 – $80.
Firstly I advise all Authors to do their research on their cover designer. Yes, there are competitive prices on wonderful cover designs. Find the one that suits you. Prices in the mid Hundreds are cheap for a design. As an author you will be a winner with all the sales the cover design will make you.
You are payin

Frequently asked questions

Is there a licensing fee for commercial use of my stock? Yes, I charge DA artist a flat fee of $40. Publishing companies should message me for a quote.

Where did you get that Dress?
You can see my costumes list here

What Are you terms of use?
You can see my full terms here

Can I make a Request?
You can see my terms of requests here

Why do you charge for Some stock?
Stock is expensive to create so I counter some of that expense by charging for some stock. Some of my dresses put me out hundreds of dollars! I also offer Exclusives to give artists stock that not everyone will have. The stock I feel could be easily abused I only offer as exclusives to control who uses the image.

If stock is so expensive why don't you buy cheaper clothing?
A dress that cost $300 dollars will last longer, look better, and make the stock unique. A halloween costume, while fun to look at, can not stand up against a work of wearable art. Halloween costumes can also look cheap and unauthentic as far as period styles go.

What equipment do you use?
You can see my studio and my room :) here
