Therefore it is important that we abide by some rules and respect them.
The majority of stockers on DA have their own sets of rules posted on their pages so:
1. READ THEIR STOCK RULES BEFORE USING THEIR STOCK.

3. ALWAYS CREDIT THE STOCKER OF WHOS STOCK YOU HAVE USED (including WIP's and close-ups)Include a link to either their profile or the stock image used.
4. Let the stocker know about the piece you have created, they would probably love to see and fave it.
5. Please submit your stock into the correct folder.
So have fun with it and create some art!!
