Interests
Did Picaso every paint in credits on his art to whoever owned the property he used as ref for a painting? For that matter, has ANYONE? Nope. And art is art wether done digital or old school.

You people need to get over the assumption everyone uses DA stock/resources.

I do NOT.

all backgrounds are my art/renders, all models are shot in my studio.

I OWN 100's of stock pacs witch I PAID for. I also OWN $1000's worth of 3D modeling sets and do my own renders using them.

Speaking of naming resources... any of you "stock providers" name the ones who MADE the 3D sets you just click a button to render (like Stonemason and AntFarm, etc) and call it "yours"?!

The main reason I do NOT use DA stock?
Because MOST want you you to put THEIR name all over YOUR art... what good is it to offer someone resources then put an ass-load of restrictions because you think you need your name up in lights and are trying to gain merit through someone else's vision? If you are going to offer stock, then do it w/o any stupid ass restrictions, or, don't do anyone any favors!

I'm not flying a plane around with your banner trailing behind, naming my children after you, etc etc saying I used your stock to create my art!

If you are like a VERY SMALL amount of stock providers like ranum [link] then I have the utmost respect for you!

The rest of you? Get a fucking life.
