Calling all artists!

Are you an artist or a photographer and interested in offering up your work for Dreamwidth style and layout designers to use in a possible system style?

This post is for artists and photographers to offer links to their body of work that people can use. If you're interested, please:

* Comment with the name that you'd like to be credited with and a link to the online archive of your work.
* Submit a Contributor Licensing Agreement saying that we (Dreamwidth) have permission to use and redistribute your work. (It is not a rights assignment! You retain all rights to your work. That agreement only says that we have permission to use and redistribute it.)

If one of our layout designers uses your work in a layout, it will be added to the Dreamwidth website, so we won't be using your bandwidth. We'll also credit you by name and provide you with a gift of Dreamwidth paid time.

In order for your work to be used in a DW system style, you need to own all the rights to it. This means that (for instance) photographs can't have been taken under a work-for-hire agreement where someone else owns the copyright to the work, and we can't accept collages of images that contain photographs or stock art that you don't own the rights to.

If you have any questions, you can contact [personal profile] afuna via PM or me via email at!

Folks are welcome to pull from my photo gallery here:

Lots of con-photos, but some travel stuff as well.

** NOTE ** : if anyone wants to use anything from the Relay For Life section, I'll need to get permission from the guy *in* the photos. =) Most everyone else is 'fair game'.

*feels kinda silly doing this, but...*

[community profile] skylark_art and [community profile] skylark_photos

There are a bunch of headers there that are off larger photographs I took (and can provide).

Otherwise, any open photo posts on my main journal are fair game (convention photos, landscapes, animals, trip photos of landscapes and animals, etc.), and larger copies can be provided.

Credit [community profile] skylark_art or [community profile] skylark_photos.

(I will email the CLA if anything gets used)

I like your headers in [community profile] skylark_art. Do you happen to have any that are taken at night-time, or darker colours in general?

Another "I don't have much" comment, but feel free to use my photos - the vacations and scenery set probably has the most useful stuff.

I would like to work with someone who is familiar with CSS to create a few styles, or one style with some interchangeable graphics, if possible. I can work in several mediums, including Photoshop for vector artwork, simpler vector patterns, and using a drawing tablet for hand drawn artwork. The artwork linked here is to give you an idea of what I do, and is not available for use; I am hoping to work together collaboratively and create something original. Thanks! :)

I'm reachable via t_quibbler on DW, Inksome, LJ, and (used most frequently at present) IJ if anyone wants to get in touch with me.

I'm using my Dreamwidth account to basically backup my LJ Photoblog. I'm happy for almost anything there to be used. If anyone sees anything there they'd like to use, drop me a line and I'll see about sending a CLA in.

Don't know if anything will work for anyone, but folk are welcome to poke round my Flickr:

Where the pretty stuff lives:
Among the architecture
Leaves and Kings
Best shots
Holiday (Paris)

Obviously, photos of the kids/tagged family are out of bounds, and anything else with people in, ask first so I can check.

My site's down for maintenance right at the moment but I'm hoping I'll be able to fix that *very* soon, and put my work up again. Once it's back - is my photography portfolio.

I have a good deal of stuff on my Flickr account as well: . I want to be credited as "Kristen L. Kellick".

Getting model permission on the Arthur Murray stuff would be tricky-to-difficult, as would people-centric shots from weddings. Anything else is probably fair game. I personally think some of my best shots are of the DC Metro area, and from WDW, especially Animal Kingdom.

I'd be interested in making some of my work available for Dreamwidth layouts, if any CSS experts are interested. I do a lot of black and white abstracted vector designs. My kitsune and foxes tend to be really popular. :)

Not all of my work is available--most of my open tattoo designs (not the commissioned ones, please!) are, plus work under 'fantasy' at my site may be available--please contact me for specifics! I'm also willing to create new graphics for a layout design as time permits, so I'd love to hear other peoples' ideas. My site is at , and I can be contacted at hopeofdawn AT

(CLA will be submitted if there is any interest in my work. :) )

[personal profile] helens78 2009-08-04 08:17 pm (UTC)(link)
If anyone wants to create a [community profile] dreamsheep-based style, I would be totally jazzed.

The original dreamsheep is an original work (save for the DW logo), free for using in any manner ewe you see fit.

There are also some banners and buttons, including "powered by Dreamwidth" buttons, which I'd be more than happy to have people using on any style, dreamsheep-based or not. :)

I don't have a lot of photography online right now, but if there's any developers out there who would like to ask for specific types of images, I think it would be totally fun to do stock photos "on demand."

Here's a couple small examples of photos I've taken in the Portland, OR area.

I could easily provide: nature textures (leaves, flowers, trees, gardens) architecture, bridges, water, local landmarks, public art, household objects, fabric textures, etc.

I have several thousand pictures in my computer. Unfortunately, I've only put a few in my Flickr account when I want to show them to LJ/DW friends. But if someone has an idea what they'd like to use, and can't find it elsewhere, you could ask and I'll format/upload pictures that might match your ideas. (starwatcher at dishmail dot net)

I have mountain views, cliffs, flowers, cactus, other plants & trees, rivers, oceans, (some gorgeous, colorful) sunsets, moon, clouds, and many animals, domestic and wild (zoos, local prairies), including bugs and butterflies. Also a folder of 'textures' - wood fences, pebbled playground, wood-chip mulch, etc.

I love to show off my pictures, so please don't hesitate to ask. Not everything in my account belongs to me -- I've uploaded some friends pictures so they could showcase them -- so please ask before using, but most of it is available. Credit StarWatcher.

I'd really love to have a sky-themed style!

My dad's given blanket permission to use these photos he took in Nepal for whatever, since he's not going to:

And here's some more sky pics I took at the beach years ago, although they're not as cool looking, except for the first one:

Any of the photographs that are on my deviantArt account are fair game, except for the ones that have a person in them, as some of those, I cannot contact the person in the photo to ask for permission for use in this way.

However, if anyone wants to use any of the photography in the galleries for anything, I'd be honoured/thrilled/etc.

Oh yes, credit if anyone should use them should me to Rowan Schroeder, and with a reference to this account.

I just started getting back to drawing, calligraphy and photography and I don't have much online yet, but once I do I'd be happy to share it with those who want to use it. I'm spending the next week in the mountains so I should have some nature photos to offer.

My art is in these LJ galleries. I'm doing a piece of art a day this month and will try to include a banner or two. :-)
