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

****Update: DA took his account down. Thank you DA for sticking up for Stock Artist. We appreciate your support! 

If you are a stock provider on DA I would suggest taking a look through :iconchtuluh2: gallery.

I would strongly suggest that if your works are featured in the gallery that you report them for copyright infringement. The user has been posting since 2013, and only posts credit when he is called out by the stock artist. He obviously knows he needs to provide credit, he has been told multiple times, but continues to do so knowingly. It's incredibly disrespectful and a violation of copyright. This user won't listen to the stock community, but maybe he will change if the work he has spent so much time on is taken down.
