Image use notice

Due to the cases of plagiarism and picture theft becoming more frequent,
using my photographs for drawing reference, image manipulation, or any other commercial or non-commercial purpose without my consent is prohibited.

Those artists who had earlier obtained my consent for use may continue using my photographs in their traditional or digital art
only on the condition of providing a hyperlink to the original photograph every time such art is presented on display.
The absence of such hyperlink will be construed as a serious infringement of my copyright.

Using my photographs for image manipulation, even with the hyperlink to the original provided, is strictly prohibited in all cases.

Lack of reply to your inquiry regarding the use of my work should be treated as a negative reply.

Thank you.

Hoping for understanding and mutual respect,
Paul Apal'kin
