The Good

Welcome to my stock photo gallery. If you like what you see here, you should also check out my art account, Nikx.


Now, let's get to business.

If you use my stock photos, inside or outside deviantART:
:bulletgreen: Please credit me with a link to or other adequate contact information.
:bulletgreen: Send me a link to the artwork using my stock photos, whether it be on deviantART or not.

Feel free to sell your work containing my stock. It's your hard work and creativity; you deserve the right to sell it.

You don't need to ask permission before using my stock, but please do let me know afterwards. In fact, please don't ask me beforehand. I only check my messages every several weeks, and I may not be able to respond before your deadline.

Also, I absolutely love it when my photos are used as a reference for traditional art. So even if you're just practicing, I'd love to see it.

The Bad

I don't do requests, sorry, but I do take critiques seriously.

I will, at the very least, look at every single piece of art created using my stock, but I can't promise to comment or :+fav: everything I see. If you don't recieve a favorite or comment from me, please do not repeatedly send me links or comments. Once is enough, thanks.

And please don't contact me about used stock through my art account; I'm trying to keep the two accounts separate. Also, any images posted to my art gallery but not my stock gallery are not stock photos. Thanks!

The Ugly

I release these photos completely for free because I love contributing to art and making connections with other artists, but if I'm not receiving credit, less people will find me in this obscure little corner of the Internet.

So, I hate to have to do this, but if I find that you haven't credited me, I will ask you once--and only once--to fix it. If you ignore me or refuse, I will have to contact the administration and request that they remove the deviation.

FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?

Hey there. I'm hoping I can use this picture to practice retouching. Would this be a problem? I can send you the final image somehow?

Hello! I did use one of your stocks as a reference :] I hope you don't mind:

I had to do a sculpture with a dramatic expression and I really like your picture, so I referenced the hair and eyes (somewhat) On your picture.
It was a class project
