Requirement of property release for my own original illustrations

I've started uploading some illustrations I've done in the past, most have been accepted, however quite a few are getting refused for the following reason:

Please, upload a property release.
- The image contains elements that might be protected by copyright/trademark (logos, brands, specific buildings etc.), can identify a property/product (letters, numbers), or could raise usage problems, therefore it doesn't qualify as a RF stock image. Analyze the photo closely and remove these elements if possible or try to obtain a property release. Read more: https://www.dreamstime.com/thread_148

I've read the thread it suggests, but nothing seems to relate to my images. Also the property release doc seems to be aimed at photographers, not illustrators and I can't understand why I'd need to fill it in, in the first place...

All of my drawings are my own, are created with my own imagination, nothing within my drawings are based on (or resemble) any copyrighted or trademark objects, are fictional subjects in fictional locations, and these drawings have never appeared in print or online?

For future uploads, what can I put in the comments box to stop me having to resubmit them?

Simply fill in a property release on which you mention that all illustration elements are your own work. Have a witness sign it while you sign as photographer/illustrator and property owner. Submit it in PR library and attach it to your illustrations when uploading them.

Thanks for the reply.

I am the owner of the 'property'(images), surely filling out a form stating that I give permission to myself to use my own drawings is pointless?

Slightly confused?

It is not pointless, as it is the only way we can know and be assured that it is your own work.
We require a model release for those people who use themselves as a model.
Please understand that this is a legal requirement that has to be respected.

Thanks again, I will fill out the form as you recommend, it just reads strange that is all.

Do you suspect that I'm experiencing these rejections due to the fact they are scanned images of pen/ink/pencil drawings rather than digitally created?

I understand your point regarding photographers taking self portraits needing a 'model release', however this is more akin to a photographer having to fill out a 'property release' to state s/he is the owner of the original photograph in the first instance...

You can send the images IDs to support for a detailed answer, but this is most likely the reason why the images are being refused.

I have resubmitted all the refused files with a filled out 'Property Release', along with this comment for the editor 'This is my own original drawing, that has been created with my own imagination, nothing within the drawing is based on (or is intended to resemble) any copyrighted or trademark objects. The image contains fictional subjects in a fictional location. The image has never previously appeared in print or online.'

Oh my! Beautiful illustrations! I really like your work and you should have no problems with sales.
There is an illustration forum. I would enjoy discussing and getting some information on your wacom.
I use Inkscape for my illustrations

Illustrations can be uploaded as *.jpg, just like a photo, and the *.eps file can be uploaded as additional format.

eps is an extension of a vector file/image.
Probably you do not use a vector program to create images, so, it is OK to send just as jpg, and, if you wish, and there are parts without color, you can send a *.png file as additional format.

lucky that you had a witness when did the drawings :) I work alone, solitude is my best friend, so I can not upload this kind of illustrations :)

yes, in a vectorial image you can zoom in forever and the quality never change. A line is not a touch of a pen on a paper, is a math formula. Download Inkscape from internet and start playing. It's free.

I remember my first aproach on this :) A friend told me that the quality never degrade when zooming... I was amazed and start zooming... after years I continue to zoom in and all I have found is black, black, black... But someday I will find a white pixel! I am like captain Ahab from Moby Dick ... :)
