Is it possible for me to use this as a cover for a YouTube album? I'm not making any money on my YouTube account (I didn't set up any money-making services on that account), so I'm basically asking if I can use this for free. I think you are a gifted artist, and I love this painting! It also fits the theme of the album very well.
I'm not all too good at music writing, but you can check out the playlist "Technology Park" (not yet fully uploaded) on YouTube. The account is also called NeroLizard. I hope you like it! I also recommend one of the later songs on the list, the first two are a little off.
That's a great piece! We run a small press magazine called Morpheus Tales (www.morpheustales), and we're currently working on an Urban Horror Special issue. We'd love to use your artwork in the magazine. Unfortunately we can't pay but you would receive an electronic contributor's copy of the magazine.

Hey Morpheustales, thanks for contacting me. Unfortunalety since your magazine is not free I won't give you permission to use my work for free either. With the money you earn from selling your magazine (£11) and for selling advertisement space (£40 - £150), you should be able to pay artists to illustrate your magazine.
Costs of printing and postage outweigh money brought in from sales and subscriptions (particularly with overseas subscribers), and advertising sales in a small press magazine are virtually non-existant, but I take your point.
