People like you are why the internet is so great. Thank you.
Very kind of you to say that :)
Very weird license. It sounds like public domain but you can't sell. It sounds like CC BY-NC but you don't need attribution.
I want to keep this free for everyone. Don't want someone to just create an interface and charge for the illustrations.
Do you know of any premade licenses that work best for open-source projects that "allow illustrations to be embedded in (non-) commercial sites under the condition that the artwork may not directly be sold without the creator's consent"?
same feeling here. unDraw switching their MIT license to a “do not compete” made me incredibly skeptical, and it’s the same model here.
the benefit of open source is that you’ll never be wrapped into a dirty lawsuit over a technicality. licenses like this scare developers off.
My favorite license is DBAD. Not sure how well it really works, though.
As a developer who work for a big company (big company = more vigilant about licenses), I wouldn't even bother asking the legal team about DBAD and WTFL, I know that I won't ever be able to use a work licensed under those. I highly recommend that you don't use this kind of license.
I think the license basically says "use it, even in commercial products, but do not sell it as your own work"
Many websites use this kind of design, I think it originally started on Facebook a couple of years back, then Google caught on this bandwagon and the rest is history. It's so prominent currently because a) FANG started to popularize it b) it's easy to create and animate because the shapes aren't complex. It also plays well with material design / fluent desing themes. Of course this is a very rough summary, even within this type of design there are a few noticeable changes (use of gradient colors, shift to isometric perspective, grain textures, fantastic body shapes - e.g. huge heads, long legs and so on)
This is really A-W-E-S-O-M-E!! Thanks for contributing and sharing your work! I literally woke up this morning thinking "I need to find some stock image" (for a side project) but saw your post and landed here. Your illustrations made so much more sense on my page! Cheers! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Amazing! Glad the timing worked out perfect :)
It would be good if you make one agreement with this website so that creators can include them easily in the articles. Maybe just by mean of tags.
I mean, sometimes one has the idea of the content for the articles but not the time to look for the image. Imagine if there is a whole set of them of them to use here easily.
Working on an API soon, should solve for this!
I LOVE this. I love opensource images and have used similar libraries recently in OSS I've been maintaining. Thanks so much.
My only feedback would be to vary the shape of the people and maybe introduce androgynous folks too. You have options for male/female, but as we know (particularly well in tech), there are many more folks requiring representation
Thanks a lot :)
Surely, will try to incorporate this moving forward.
I'm curious. How are you providing these for free?
I have always found design to be a huge handicap for anything that I create. I started by creating these for myself and using it on my projects majorly Remote Tools. So thought might as well open source it & give back to the community.
I have added many more illustrations though before making the website live. Hopefully, in future, it might drive some traffic to my projects too :)
Illustrations are very important for delivering a message so I am surprised that these are free because they look like a lot of time and expertise has gone into the creation of these illustrations.
Too many designers work for "exposure", which is why I am asking about this. I don't see any problem if you made these artworks yourself, or if you paid another illustrator to make these and have the rights to use them as you wish. Once the artist is paid. And if you are the artist, you can do artwork for your own promotion, why not? Not everyone has the resources to invest in decent illustrations so the fact you are willing to provide these for free is great. Fair play to you in this case, everyone can benefit!
Well said, Darren - it pretty much sums up the entire rationale :)
The illustrations take a lot of time & effort since I want to keep it high quality - started on this back in March/April.
This is awesome! Thanks for the great work!
Cheers Lynne :)
You have a great mindset.. Thanks for helping out the dev community. Awesome work and wish you all the best, Hrishikesh.
Thanks so much Tapas :)
