Hello, I hope everyone is well. I'm sorry I have not been active here lately, I have been busy with work and some things in my personal life. I haven't really had the energy for personal work but I hope to return to it some day if my life becomes better... However, I do often come here and I appreciate all of the comments even though I do not always reply.
Anyway, I just wanted to address something on the front page.
I have described my work in the past as "backgrounds" because I aspire to recreate the feel of high quality background art used for animation or games.
Just because I describe my work as "backgrounds" does NOT mean that they are stock resources for people to use freely when making images, especially without asking permission beforehand or giving credit.
The work I have created and displayed on this website is the result of many hours of labor and care. Much of it is also paid commissions created for video games, architecture or multimedia art, which are under copyright and I repost here only when given explicit permission to do so by my client.
I do not like to put watermarks or signatures on the work because I feel it is tacky and harms the integrity of the image...
I appreciate your interest in my work but
Please do NOT use or modify my work for use in your own images. Also, please do NOT repost without either credit or a link to the work on Deviantart, pixiv or my personal website.
If you want to use my work as reference material to create original artwork of your own creation (for example, as concept art), it may be possible but please ask first and give credit.
Thank you for your understanding.
