Svenja Milautzcki

Hi fellow deviants! I'm mecurycode and I provide you with high resolution resources, mainly textures.

Over the past years, I've developed a great passion for making textures. They can be so versatile and not only represent a mixture of art and resource, they too hold the potential of adding to marvellous works of other artists.

If you'd ask me what fascinates me the most in the process of making them, I'd say it's spotting the beauty in decay. Sometimes the destruction of something brings out a whole different kind of beauty. Rust, for example, can be so bright, colorful and versatile that I can't seem to ever capture enough of it. Feel free to browse through my gallery and if you feel inspired, go for it!

Like me on Facebook and stay updated:

Hi Everyone!

Under each of my deviations, you are able to read the following line: „Feel free to use my work for whatever you like, wherever you like.“ And as apt as that is, some people are still confused about what to make of that exactly, and they have a point. So at this stage I'd like to give everyone in doubt the opportunity to learn what my rules say explicitly.
  1. What you may create with my textures:

    When I say „feel free to use my textures in any way you want“, the operative word is „use“. Meaning you must not re-upload my textures and claim them as your own work. If you use them, incorporate them into your own artwork in any way you like. As long as your result will look any different from my texture, you're safe to go. There is a grey zone however, that is making stock from my stock, being explained in the next paragraph.

  2. Making stock from my textures:

    Generally, I allow making stock from my stock. BUT there is a fine line between creatively using my stock to create something completely new and alternating my stock simply in color, contrast and other ways that will only cause minor alterations to my original textures.
    In other words: I'd advise you against using other's stock to create your own, just to be on the safe side. Unless you are very confident that your result will be new and different from the resources you use to make it, you will be best advised to use your own photos. Because when it comes to differences in opinion, the determining one will always be of the holder of the copyright – which is the creator of the original texture(s).

  3. Where you can use my textures:

    The use of my resources is not limited to deviantart or the internet, for that matter. You can use my textures on any website you like: on any blog, personal website, facebook page or in any community. Or use them for an offline art project for your classes in high school or college. The „where“ is completely open to you, if you follow the other rules.

  4. Commercial or non-commercial usage:

    You can use my textures for both commercial and non-commercial use. As long as I am given credit, you can sell your product using my textures. Be aware that this does not include redistribution!

  5. How you can give credit when using my stock:

    Credit has to be given, but you are free to choose which way of crediting you prefer. In the internet, I'd suggest linking to my facebook or deviantart account in the description of your work. You do not have to link to every single texture you used, unless you want to. A simple link to my account is all I ask for.
    If you use my texture for an analogue product like a flyer, poster or book, you can give credit by stating my name, for example „Texture by Svenja Milautzcki“ somewhere on the product. If you like, you can add a web-link, but that's not mandatory. If you're still unsure how to credit, you can always ask me in a note. If there is no way at all you can give credit, just contact me and we can work something out.

  6. Do not be afraid!

    It happens very rarely that there's a problem with copyright or redistribution. In 99% of the cases my textures are used in a creative way that meets the rules. You can check out my favorites folder “Great use of my resources” which collects every single deviation made using my stock. And even if there is a problem or something goes wrong – you can always talk to me! I'm not a mean person and in almost every case we can work something out together.
Now if you have any more questions, you can check out my Frequently Asked Questions journal which I will update later today.

ich habe mal eine Frage, da Du Dich ja mit Texturen und damit auch vermutlich deren Kategorisierung auskennst.

Ich arbeite ja mit Spiegelungen von Bildern, meistens aus der Natur. Flechten, Äste und solch ein Kram. Und nun weiß ich nicht, wo gehören solche Dinge hin, wenn ich sie als Texturen anbiete. "Organic"? Oder "Abstract"? Oder ganz was anderes?

Ich meines sowas hier:…

Ich würde es wohl am ehesten in Abstrakt packen. Es ist zwar aus etwas organischem entstanden, aber als solches nur marginal erkennbar. :)
Xenaris Featured By Owner 3 days ago
Alles klar, dankeschön. Ich wollte nur sichergehen, dass ich nicht aufgrund schlechten Englisches erfolgreich an einer passenderen Kategorie wie "Muster" vorbeigeschaut habe. :)
mercurycode Featured By Owner 3 days ago
Es gibt höchstens eine Kategorie für Photoshop patterns, also nahtlose Muster. Da müsstest du als Künstler entscheiden, ob dein Werk eher Textur oder Photoshop Pattern ist :)
