FAQ

Licensing artwork

If you’re interested in licensing my artwork for commercial use, please contact me at info@atori-e.com. However, I am not interested in having my artwork licensed for use in signature tags or any other stock usage, so please do not contact me about those!

Layouts

I only allow my artwork to be used in layouts if my website link (atori-e.com) is visible on the image being used. Please e-mail me (info@atori-e.com) before using my artwork in a website layout so that I can indicate whether I approve of its use or not.

Profile pictures, avatars and icons

You can use my art for your profile picture, avatar, or icon, but only if there is some way to clearly credit my work. On facebook, please include my name and loish.net in the image description. On a forum, please include a credit line in your signature. If there is no way to credit me for the image, please refrain from using it as your profile picture.

Reference

Using my artwork as a reference for your own is not a problem. This applies to referencing specific parts of my art as well as ’style borrowing‘ or trying out elements of my digital painting approach. All I ask is for you to link to the image you used as a reference and provide proper credit (with a link to loish.net). Also, I would love to see the artwork you created with my work as reference!

Personal use

Using my image as your desktop wallpaper, printing out a small version for yourself, or any other small-scale personal use is perfectly fine. Please just don’t sell my art or claim it as your own.

Website or blog features

I am always happy to have my artwork featured on your journal, blog or website. There is no need to ask permission beforehand, and I am very grateful to anyone who wants to share my artwork! Please post my images with a link back to loish.net. Feel free to send a link to the feature at info@atori-e.com if you like; However, please do not demand that I share the link on my social networks – If you are only featuring my work as a way to get a shout-out on my social media channels, please do not feature my work on your site. I only share links on my social media on my own intiative.
