    Stock images, textures, brushes, premades & cut-out stock
      ALWAYS...
    • ...give credit (with a link back here)
    • ...show me what you've created (via note or comment)
      NEVER...
    • ...redistribute my stock/brushes as it is (no repacks either!) - link people here instead -- my stock is not to be redistributed as part of tutorials packages!!!
    • ...create stock from my stock (incl. brushes, premade backgrounds)
    • ...upload your manips of my stock to the photography section - you did not take the picture, I did!
      YOU CAN...
    • ...use my stock for commercial use, incl. prints, book/cd covers, commissions etc - but excluding stock premades for sale!...
    • as long as you
    • ...do more than minor adjustments (change colors, use filters, remove phone lines) - i.e. if it's your art you're selling, I'm perfectly fine - if you're trying to sell my photos, I'm not.
      YOU CAN ALSO...
    • ...use my stock to practice retouching/overpainting (i.e. minor adjustments, not full manips) as long as you keep to the rules above and upload to an appropriate category, for example Digital Art > Miscellaneous or your Scraps - NOT anywhere in Photography (you did not take the picture after all)! You are not allowed to sell retouches!
    • ...use my stock for reference in traditional art.
    • ...use my stock to illustrate webzines/news articles
    • ...create website layouts or dA journal layouts
    • ...use my stock in all kinds of personal projects
    • ...use my stock off dA (incl. ponybox, forums, etc)
      No need to ask! - just keep with the rules above especially concerning commercial use and all's good!

    Journal CSS
      If you use them, use them as they are or completely (!) exchange the images for your own. I put a lot of effort into my css and it stings when people tear the design apart to start mixing and matching my images with their own or those of other css creators. You can use the code as a basis for your own, but the images are not yours to drag through Photoshop - they are not stock! Also, please don't use the images individually for example as module backgrounds - you can only use them within the css.

    Tutorials
      My tutorials are all (c) kuschelirmel-stock - I provide them for free because I believe in giving back to the community the help that I got when I started out. But that does not mean I want them redistributed and reprinted/copied all over the place. It takes lots of time to make them, so let me at least have the possibility to see all reactions first hand! I will not agree to translations, mostly because I cannot check if the translation is any good if I don't speak the language. Sorry, English only!

    I'm a process engineer who loves to create photomanips in her free time. My art account can be found at kuschelirmel. Here on my stock account, you'll find all sorts of resources from stock images to textures to tutorials. I don't have many rules when it comes to the usage, but I have a few and I expect you to take the time to read them if you download and use my stock.

    If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me via note or e-mail: kuschelirmel<at>gmail.com

Brazier with Fire - PSD Plus by kuschelirmel-stock
Brazier with Fire - PSD Plus
Cut from my own photos.
Created by me from scratch in Photoshop CS5, but should work from CS3 and up (please download and try it if in doubt) -- Photoshop version needs to be able to use Smart Objects (Layers > Smart Objects in the menu). Not compatible with Gimp.


I am a dummy! Rules for PSD Plus files:
PSD Plus
is the name I've decided to use for bundles like this one: a PSD file plus the original (and cut out) stock plus an explanation on the layers / tricks used to get the look. Since all images / material comes from my own photos / brushes / etc. I am in a position to offer you the use of everything in here for your art. Meaning, yes, you are allowed to use the psd as if it were simple cut out stock in your art (but as always not for premades or redistribution). Feel free to adapt it to your liking :aww:  My usual rules apply to the images and the psd - the mini-tutorial that is included may NOT be redistributed or used outside of your personal learning experience. I put a lot of effort into my tutorials and I do get quite mad when I see them abused.


By downloading, you agree to abide by my rules - you can read them in my journal
They're not complicated, even though they seem lengthy.
NO REUPLOADING, NO PREMADES, NO BRUSHES ETC CAN BE MADE WITH MY STOCK! only art!!!

New kind of stock


I've been thinking about offering a new kind of "stock" - it will combine precut / premade stock with mini-tutorials. I am going to upload the first item this week (or so) so you can see what I'm getting at. It'll be a brazier with fire inside :D

Basically, I'll offer a PSD file (Photoshop only, sorry!) with layers where you are not only allowed to look at the layers and my added explanations of them, but you will also be allowed to use everything in the PSD file for your art (modified or unmodified, up to you): the original stock images (all shot by me and included seperately), the layers with painted parts, masks, layer blend modes - everything!

The explanations I want to add, that is the part I need to figure out still. I want to keep these really short, just a few added comments or something along those lines, and not do my usual full out tuts because I would never find enough time to do these on a regular basis. I was thinking of picking one aspect of the PSD file and writing a mini-tut about that and just leave the rest to your experimentation. If I find I need or want to do a bigger tut, I will do it separately. As with my other precut / premade stock some of these will be free and some will be Premium Stock.

==> What do you think? :thinking: 


Oh and I'm still searching for a name for these... "PSD Plus" maybe? :thinker:  If you've got an idea, please do tell ^^;

Want to win some exclusive irmel stock?

You can win some exclusives in the following contest(s):

King Kong and I contest (2 days left)
With  12,900 :points:
Welcome to my second contest
3 years ago, I held my first contest Draw Tom Ripley Contest in 2012 with total 39,600 :points:  That event still makes me poor but very pleased until now. =P 
In 2015, I am quite lucky in art. I won lots of points from many contests throughout the year.
Now I'm ready to hold a contest again and share 12,900 :points: to other artists.
This event is called...
KING KONG AND I
CONTEST
Yes, the theme of this contest is about King Kong and a woman.
I believe that almost all of you have seen King Kong movies at least once from 1933, 1976 or 2005 version.
 So, this event is like 10 year anniversary for the last time we saw King Kong.
  THE NINE WORLDS - VIKINGS UNIVERSE EXTENDED!
EXTENDED UNTIL 12.02.2016
Maybe you know the historical drama tv series "Vikings"
inspired by the Sagas of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok
or saw the comedy film "Erik the Viking" written and directed by Terry Jones,
or you have read already the "Edda" and you are fascinated by norse mythology.

The legends and tales are a common heritage of German,
Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon peoples.
The Norse creation myth tells how everything came into existence

in the gap between fire and ice, and how the gods shaped the homeworld of humans.

If you`re not familiar with the theme,
please read the introduction first
