Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
    Stock images, textures, brushes, premades & cut-out stock
    • ...give credit (with a link back here)
    • me what you've created (via note or comment)
    • ...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
    • 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.

      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>

    Tools of the Trade
    • Nikon D90 with the following lenses: 18-105 mm, 70-300 mm, 105 mm Macro

Inside the old Bath House 09
Shot in Tuscany, Italy, August/September 2014
This used to be an old bath house - now it's a ruin you can not enter too far because it is in danger of collapsing. That's why some of these have a bit of an odd angle, but maybe you can use them anyway - can't wait to see what you do! :love:

The Last of the Wilds by shadeley

shadeley with "The Last of the Wilds"

I love the abstract flames together with the photorealism of the scene. You can basically see the magic pouring out from the girl. It's a reduced colour palette, but it's not completely monochromatic - well done! :love:

The Guardians by Aramisdream

Aramisdream with "The Guardians"

It's no secret I love glowing things, but this image stood out to me not only because of the warm glow, but also the artist has managed to create a scene so cute and well-lit that I couldn't pass it up. Plus I love how the wings actually fit to the animals so naturally. :aww:
