Thanks so much for reading <3 There are two types of licenses for my artworks. For anything published by me in this website’s gallery and my social media, please read the license terms under “Gallery & Social Media”. For any digital items bought in my shop, you are granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license subject to the terms stated below under “Digital Items from My Shop”.
Gallery & Social Media
All artworks on my social media accounts and my gallery are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License.

You may not modify my art in any way. My art may not be used commercially. Please read the full details in the license terms here.
CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 -- FAQ
Here are some common questions I get via DM and email. If after reading the CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license you’re not sure whether your case is covered or not, you can ping me on Discord moertel#9999, my social media accounts or via email at email@example.com.
- May I use your artwork as a desktop or mobile wallpaper?
— Yes, absolutely!

— Yes, if it’s a personal (non-commercial) profile and if you credit me in your profile description. (E.g. “Banner by @moertel”)

Digital Items from my shop
For any digital items bought in my shop, you are granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to access and use the digital files made available by me to you only for your internal purposes of using them as desktop and mobile wallpapers on your personal devices. You acquire no ownership of copyright or other intellectual property rights or proprietary interest in my artworks and you may not produce any additional copies or modifications (except for personal backup copies as permitted by law).

In case you’re not sure whether or not your case is covered, please reach out to me before buying the item because digital items cannot be refunded.
