I primarily use this website for finding stock images. However, I do post submissions of my work using this stock. I use most stock for photo-manipulations on sim game sites, including:
- Horse Phenomena
- Furry Paws
- Lucky Lapine
Each work made is separated by website using folders in my gallery. You may also see various traditional works or free style photo-manipulations in the "Featured" album on my page.
All finished works are credited with “SD” for Skozout Designs
. I make sure to follow all stock rules and ask permission when necessary. I provide credits on the finished piece as well as links in the description area to the stock owners. I do not sell my manipulations for real currency, only game currency that has no legitimate value. Please note that I do host images made for my private accounts for purpose of shorter links for coding on Imgur. They are in a private album where the specific link must be posted/embedded for the image to be visible. I do remove them when I am not using them, but you can always find the work here.As far as my "sim game customers" go, some do like to host their own images. I do inform them that they are not allowed to use the images other than on their player page and I assure you that they plan to follow the rules. However, I cannot control the world, so if you find your image lingering elsewhere, I ask that you send me a note so I can deal with the issue on my end to the best of my ability. I'd hate to see anyone take their stock off use for sim games, but I would completely understand if this option was decided as an alternative solution.
I only use free stock or ask permission if necessary. I also make sure that stock owners know where I plan to use the image BEFORE I create something with it and "sell" it to a player. If you have any questions or concerns, please ask.
