Angel of Death by xartez Angel of Death by xartez
"In the great book of John - you're warned of the day
When you'll be laid - beneath the cold clay
The Angel of Death - will come from the sky
And claim your poor soul - when the time comes to die."*

Hello again ... everyone loves this photograph and I blew it up to poster size.  Got one for you when you check back into Deviant Art.  Just email me, okay?  And I'll send it to you.

Hello again...

You might remember last spring I asked if it was okay to use your visually moving Angel of Death photograph for my e-book cover and you said okay. I had to digitally remaster it to get it to work for a book cover, but it's quite stunning. I've bought a few copies print-on-demand paperback and would like to snail-mail you one of them autographed so you can show your friends. Do you have a snail-mail address?

Thanks so much! Anna Erishkigal

Hello again! I'm kind of new to self-publishing my own e-book on CreateSpace and making a e-book cover using their web page generator, but I researched how much to purchase a non-exclusive royalty-free right to use a photograph such as this (a public statue of an angel) for a commercial purpose on sites such as i-stock photo and they appear to run from 5-12 credits, which translates into a fair market value of $10-$20. Would you consider trading an upgrade on Deviant Art to their premium service in exchange for the right to use your photo on my book cover?

(PS ... you should list your photography in Deviant Art section where you can sell the rights for some of your other works ... they're really good)

I really love this picture. I've written a book called Angel of Death and am looking for some cover art to incorporate into my blah e-book cover. Would you be willing to give me the right to use your photo? I doubt I'll ever make any money on it (or even break even), but at least I'd have a cover I like (unlike the 'big' publishers). I'd give you whatever attributions you want in the acknowledgements page.

I've created a Graffiti -Stencil out of this Photo and I want to ask you if I have your permission to publish it here on deviantart.

Ps: My Stencil is no Masterpiece but in my mind it doesn't suck either ^^

You don't need my permission. It's just a photo of a widely available sculpture and I think it's ok to use it (sculpture or photo) as a base of your stencil :)

Zapada w pamięć. Ale naprawdę jest niezwykły ^^
