I visit various ZOOs to take many pictures of interesting animals: in my gallery, you can find mostly wolves, foxes, big cats and marine mammals, but also some other creatures which deserve attention :nod: I am also trying to bring you information about animals to share the knowledge :D

Welcome to my gallery, dear visitor! :hug:

RULES FOR USING MY WORK

The main rule is: ALWAYS GIVE CREDIT.

Even if I do not like what people did with my work, I will always treat them nicely when they at least tried to somehow credit me. On the contrary, I will always hunt down people who repost / use my shots without at least an attempt to show that it is my work.


How to give credit? Probably the best way is something like “Original (link to original photo) taken by :devwoxys”. But “original by woxys” is fair enough. For people who use my art outside of DA, please, always use a full link to my account “Photo belongs to Woxys: www.woxys.deviantart.com”. The link to particular original photo would be appreciated.


Other rule: never cut my signature, please. Cutting my signature is allowed only in situation 8 :)



1) Can I use your photos as a drawing / painting / sculpture reference?

Yes, you definitely can! I am always pleased when other artists use my photos as an inspiration for their own art. So just give me a credit and send me a link to your final work. I will fav it ;) I usually consider such inspired art to be the property of the author who referenced (especially when he/she use my art just to find out how to draw details, like paws of the foxes), but rather contact me before commercial use. But in 99 % cases it would be fine :)



2) Can I use your photos for photomanipulations and brushing?

Yes, you can. Again, credit me and send me a link to your work, so I can fav it. In this case, the commercial use of such modified photos might be problematic, so always contact me before you plan to sell your work. If I see there is just a minor change (especially kids love to modify just the colour of the animal’s eyes), I would not be happy if you were selling such art.



3a) Can I use your art for any commercial purpose? For commercial purpose, I mean: a logo of a company or any other business, a poster, a motive for ANY thing which is for sold/sell, simply any use that might generate profit, even secondary (a logo, a cover for a book, blah blah blah….). Even if this is just "referenced" - like for example using my photo of a leopard and turning it into a STYLIZED logo/graphic or a T-shirt design / puzzle design.

No, you can not use it for profit without my written permission. I do allow people to use my work for commercial purpose under some condition, but it is always non-exclusive right (so I am still allowed to use and sell my photos). It is always a pleasure for me that somebody wants to use my art and if we finally make a deal! But sorry, I want money. I am too poor to just give my photos away ;) there are only two subjects which might get my photos for free and I would deal with them on particular issues. Thanks for understanding.


3b) What about dA commisions? Can I use your photos in that way?
In this case, contact me, please, I will do my best to help :)



4) Can I use your photos on Facebook / Twitter / any other social network?

I am very happy and grateful when people SHARE my work. That’s the point – if you want to use my work on Facebook and other similar social sites, please, always SHARE, never repost. Simply share a link, never download my photo, uploading it in your own gallery. After all, it would be against rules of Facebook if you do that. Please, try to consider how original artists feel when they see Facebook accounts posting their art, which gets hundreds of shares so original artists totally lose control over their own original creation. The same applies to site like “Pinterest”, “Tumbr” , “We heart it” and other similar pages. I hate them. I hate them with passion.




5) Can I use your photos for my school work/project like a presentation about some animal species which needs some illustrative images?

Yes, you can. Please, do not forget to give me a credit. The rule is the same: “Photos belong to Woxys (Woxys.deviantart.com)”.



6) Can I use your photos for a blog / my site?

I am not very happy about ANY reposting of my work, but I understand many people love to write articles about animals and so and they are not able to complete them with their own photos, while I am lucky to be able to snap animals. So yes, you can use them, but ALWAYS give credit, please. And NEVER cut my signature - this rule is especially important when it comes to posting my shots outside of DA. And it would be very appreciated if you stated that nobody else is allowed to take those photos from YOUR blog/site for other use. Also, please consider the number of photos you use for such purpose. Up to 10 would be nice ;)



7) Can I use your photos for a roleplay?

This does not make me happy at all, but… yes, you can. But please, up to three photos and always give credit. And I would appreciate if you did not cut my signature. There is also a great site for free role play photos! => www.dawnthieves.de/Web/index.p…



8) Can I use your photo for an avatar / Facebook icon?

For avatar here on dA: yes, you can, just give me credit and make the photo some 200x200 px small.

For Facebook: only if you upload it as 50x50 px version. Also, please, give credit.

For Facebook Timeline motive: you can upload only it that size which is required by Facebook itself for such motive and please, put a “Woxys” sign on that photo and give credit, please.

In this case, you might cut a signature, because it would make a total mess in such a tiny picture :)



9) Am I allowed to use your calendars and free wallpapers?

As it is also clearly written in the terms of use, both wallpapers and calendars are only and ONLY for privat use, you might also send a link to a friend or print it for a friend. You must not upload it anywhere else, you must not repost it, you must not sell it and you must not sell / repost / upload particular images of the calendar.



10) Am I allowed to print your photos?

Yes, but only for private use like decorating your room walls :) the same rule applies to downloading photos, setting them as wallpaper. Private use for one computer is ok. Downloading the photo and sending it to your friend, who would not even know me so he would upload it on some “free wallpaper website” definitely IS NOT ok ;)



Thank you for respecting this. If you want to know more about my "credit is needed", read here before you rant, please! ===> woxys.deviantart.com/journal/D…

Hi pals :)

thank you for your support.
I really hit some concrete and I've realized that there is no way how to help myself on my own.
If I do not want to lose that incredibly amazing number of 2-3 friends I have, I need to seek for expert help. One quite awful moment gave me some final kick.
I hope I can handle it.

DA does not make me happy anymore, so my activity is limited :)
New DA system is fantastic - now I see that there are only few photos of wild animals posted in last 8 hours. There used to be like 400 images posted in last 8 hours and I enjoyed browsing through them. All gone. I see that even the most amazing artists I admire get usually some 300 faves on their work. It is a kind of desilusion :)
The good thing is that was always a bit sad I can not afford better lens or camera, using just basic and quite cheap gear. Now it does not make sence to buy new stuff, so I can use money I've managed to save for some little trip.

Also: I am very sorry, but no free calendar for 2015 :( I am not in mental state to prepare one - especially when I know that in the past, there were 24 000 people looking at it and 3 000 of them downloading it, but version for 2015 would have less than 2 000 views and some 100 downloads. I apologize to my watchers, but I hope you understand there should be some ballance between effort and subsequent use of the work. I can not bother my sister with graphic and dedicate hours to making calendar when I know that thanks to new DA system, it would not be seen by people at all :( I know that this is not an addition to dA community, but... well.

I apologize for everything, I know I must look like a cold selfish bitch, but the more I am trying to be good, the more stupid I usually feel.
I am trying to find some balance.

Thank you for understanding and I wish you the most amazing time. I like you and I am grateful for your support!

Size: 70-90 cm (including tail) weight: 2-3 kg

Conservation status: Least Concern
Interesting facts: Corsac fox is a rather small fox. The colour of the foxes varies among the populations, but it is usually grey-yellow | Corsac fox is the most active during the evening and night. During the day, they stay hidden in a burrow – corsac foxes live in groups, making small colonies | mother gives birth to 2-11 kits | Corsac fox is less smelly than other fox species | Corsac foxes are bad and slow runners, but good climbers | although people hunt them for fur and although the populations can be very damaged by natural disasters, their numbers are able to recover quickly.

INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Eurasian grey wolf (canis lupus lupus)
Location: Eurasia (From Europe, to China and Russia)
Size: 1.6 m long + 50 cm tail, 100 cm high weight: 80 kg
Diet: medium sized ungulates (moufflon, chamois, saiga, wild boar, red deer, roe deer and livestock), smaller prey (frogs, mice, hares) but also fruit
Conservation status: Least Concern in general. But in some countries, there are only few animals. For example in the Czech republic, there are only some 15 Eurasian wolves, so wolves are critically endangered in my country.
Interesting facts: wolves live in the packs with strict hierarchy. Only alpha male and alpha female mate. Femalethen gives birth to 4-7 cubs. Mother and father both take care of them and then whole the pack helps them to rise the pups | wolves were exctinct in the Czech republic, as people successfully killed them all. Now, wolves are slowly returning from Slovakia and some 15 wolves live in Beskydy mountains. Unfortunately, some people still want to kill them, because they are afraid of wolves | fear of wolves is officially called Little Red Riding Hood syndrome | Eurasian wolves are very adaptable | their colourings vary a lot. | wolves have important roles in many myths, legends and fairy tales. They fascinate people.

Hey woxys :)
I wanted to tell you Tiergarten Ernstbrunn has a new enclosure at the end of the deers. It is better to photograph there, althought the background isnt very nice... You can walk all around it. At the moment there is one white wolf (Kenai) and two grey wolves (Geronimo and Amarok) in it, but they change that everytime!

Greetings,
Ria
