Hello! I am making a new web magazine about the DeviantArt community. It will be featured only on dA and I won’t sell it – it will be a free read for anyone who is interested. I want to include a little feature and your artwork is exactly what I look for. Can I please have your permission to feature it? You signature won’t be removed. Your name and the name of the picture will be right below the picture. I will show a small thumbnail of your artwork and link to the original so don’t be afraid of art theft (I have dealt with this before, I know how unpleasant it is).
Thank you for asking. I took a look at the website and it's rather vague as to whether this is a commercial undertaking or not. If you wanted it for a story you wrote for a friend's birthday present, for example, that would be fine. But in this case, I would rather you not use it unless the writer/publisher would be willing to pay a license fee for it.
