RobynRose's Profile Picture
I want YOU... to DRAW!

- Please credit me if you use one of my images. This means putting a link back to this profile somewhere near the finished piece.

Put a text link to my main profile OR use :iconrobynrose: (:icon robynrose: with the space removed)
Do not link to the stock piece you used, as I do delete old work I no longer like, and that leads to a dead link.

- Send me a note or comment linking me to the finished product. I would love to see what you've done. I always fave it!

- NO COMMERCIAL USE unless written permission is received. This includes turning creations into prints on DA. Please send me a note about commercial use, and what the project is about.

- My stock may not be redistributed, sold, or edited and redistributed or edited and sold. (In other words, you are not allowed to offer or sell my stock as your stock, edited or not. You are welcome to use it for creations)

Redistribution is defined as any posting of my own images, (including resized or unacceptibly low manipulation) to Deviantart or any other website.


My stock may not be used or reposted unedited. The purpose of my stock is for drawing reference. It is not free for use as graphics, icons, banners, aps, business cards, etc. If I find my stock used or reposted without my permission, especially commercially, I will file a DMCA takedown.

The art that you make FROM my stock may be shared, but you may not share my stock itself. Please link back to my site so that others become aware of my rules. They cannot follow my rules if they find my images on outside sites.

For pixel artists: This means you may use my stock to create dolls, with credit, but not doll bases.

My stock may not be used to make tutorials, including photo editing tutorials. This falls under reposting my stock unedited.

- I would appreciate it if my stock wasn't used for any hateful, pornographic, violent or obscene creation. Of course, this is very difficult to even define, much less enforce, so I just ask you to use your judgement when using my stock.

In the end, I reserve the right to ask anyone to remove any artwork using my stock that I feel breaks these terms of use.

- My stock is intended for art reference and use in photo manipulations. It is not free pornography. I am NOT a fetish model. I will NEVER do nude photos. Ever. Don't ask.

- DO NOT add my stock to "hot girl" folders or fetish folders. Feet, vore, inflation, etc. NO. You can have your fetish and kink but keep me out of it. This goes for favourites or art. I'm really strict about my no-porn rule.

- PLEASE DON'T make comments about my body. Even comments you think are compliments. I don't need to hear that I have a "nice ass". Keep it about the art.

- Questions and comments about anatomy and poses are fine. "Why is your shoulder bent?" or "are you locking your elbow when you hold it?" are perfectly acceptable comments.

- Not all images on this account are stock images, so if you cannot download it, it's not stock.

- Blocked users are automatically forbidden from using my stock.
My new year's resolution is to eat more vegetables. Although I love the idea of going vegetarian or vegan, I know deep down in my heart that I simply love sweet mesquite BBQ ribs too much. So I compromised and told myself I would eat more vegetables to balance out my omnivore ways.

Squash! It's not just for putting by your front door in the fall!

IMG 249squash by RobynRose

Preheat oven to 400*F and place the rack in the middle.
Cut the squash in half and scoop out the insides.
Cut a small piece off of the bottom of the round side of each half, so that they don't roll around on the pan when facing up.
In a bowl, or in one of the squash halves if you're lazy, mix:
2 teaspoons margarine
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 clove garlic finely chopped (or a small squeeze of garlic paste in a tube)
1/2 tsp salt
Less than half a teaspoon, to taste:
Ground black pepper
Powdered ginger
"Italian seasoning" Which can include oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, sage (if you have those as separate bottles, feel free to sprinkle in)

Mash the butter mixture up with a spoon, or fingers if you haven't emptied the dishwasher yet.
Split the mixture between the two halves, coating the bowl and the inner side.
Lick fingers clean and place on a baking sheet in the oven for 45 mins to and hour.
Check halfway through and re-baste the sides if you feel like it.
Every time I think I can finally break my connection to the universe, those Harry Potter Christmas marathons suck me right back in with powerful feelings of wonderment. I want to write fanfiction again. Badly. I want to write about wizard colleges in North America and nextgen children! And underdeveloped characters! and Hufflepuff / Ravenclaw points of view! I've already started pre-plotting something a little long involving Draco slowly, agonizingly coming to terms with his past, and Hermione going off to Wizard university! Feeling super inspired.

Oh, Potterverse, you suck me back in every time!

EDIT: As I said above, I like Draco Malfoy. But I don't like "good" Draco, the kind that may be prone to wearing leather pants... *cough*. I really like bad characters for being bad. I like Draco and Voldemort and Loki and the Joker because I like the idea of them being bad, nonredeemable characters. I feel like it sort of deflates the characters to make them sympathetic or justified or somehow secret jerks with a heart of gold. Why not use the character you have available, even though these examples are played by very attractive, very personable actors, to do fun, interesting, cathartic bad things?

I don't know, I just see a lot of fiction doing backflips to try to justify a bad character's behaviour, and while I think some takes can make a refreshing anti-hero if done very well, lots of them fall into weird rationalization of a bad person, especially if it's needed for an unlikely romantic pairing.

Also, if you're doing lots of rationalization, where is the fun in seeing the bad guy get their due? Like, Draco shouldn't get away with all the racism and bullying he did in school. He was categorically awful, and pretty much everyone who wasn't a death eater knew it. But that's the difference, in my opinion, between being a good character (interesting, complex) and being a good person. You don't have to be a good person to be a good character. Hence why I like Draco and Voldemort and Loki and the Joker just as bad as they are. :D

Like seriously, don't try to date a murderous psychopath. I just can't see it ending well. o_O

Tina Fey in Diamonds Quilt by RobynRose
Tina Fey in Diamonds Quilt
This is a work-inprogress shot of my quilt of Tina Fey, made out of roughly 10,000 1/2" squares of quilting cotton.
The quilt, including a recently added plain black border measures roughly 1.2 x 1.2 meters.
There are about 250+ different fabrics used in this portrait. The jagged edges are because all of the squares are rendered as 45 degree diamonds.
I started this in February 2014 and finished the initial sewing and border in July.
Tina unfortunately does not have a backing yet, and so is not yet finished.

This image is a craft I made and NOT STOCK.
Please do not use this image.

Awesome stock photos! Used one of yours here:
chriseastmids Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
wonderful art
cutefuzzyspider Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist… Used your stock as a drawing reference.

Because the reference I used was one I paid for, does that mean I'm allowed to make this image into a print without discussing it with you?  Or does it still fall under the rules of the free stock and I need to discuss any commercial use? (I don't really have an interest in doing that with this particular image, just want to make sure I understand your rules for future projects)

Thanks for the information =)
RobynRose Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015
To be clear, ALL stock usage must be cleared with me before making into prints.
Don't worry, I just need to take a look at the image, and know what it's going to be produced as, I usually say yes.
The only issue that would come up is of couse content like sexualized nudity, gore, violence, hate, etc etc...
cutefuzzyspider Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks for letting me know =) That sounds perfectly reasonable.
RobynRose Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015
