Some things we should talk aboutThis journal is here to highlight, debug and bust some myths for you all of stuff that goes on ALL the time, and is in part spurred by some recent events that leave me somewhat baffled and perplexed over some of the behavior we've been recently seeing across the DA communities, particularly Stock & Resources, and Photomanip since we work so closely together (and its apparently time I wrote a new wall of text to you all.)
Every community has them. Those constant "issues" that make people angry and frustrated. Sometimes they can be easily solved with a little effort, and other times something just snaps and causes reactions that are far and away over the top. Here are some of our top faves.
Its time for everyone to take a nice soothing deep breath, its a long one!
There will be a test at the end.
OMG WHY DID YOU SEND YOUR REPLY TO PirateLotus-Stock and CelticStrm-Stock AS WELL??

Go to the StockandResources Daily Deviation folder here -
and click on the "+ submit to this folder" button on the right hand side at the top
Select your work that was given a Daily Deviation from your gallery list in the window that opens up (needs to be a DD from the stock and resources gallery obviously ) and request for it (or them if you have a few) to be submitted
Whilst our official unofficial Community Relations directed S&R group does not normally accept submissions (except for contests) we feel that i

You are a broccoli, but a broccoli on a mission to save the world, whats your first plan of action?
I'd be all like "IT'S MORPHIN' TIEM" and I'd get my friends Carrot, Pea, and Spinach and we'd morph into our super cool Veggie Ranger suits and then form the Megaveg and destroy buildings and shit while fighting whatever's threatening the world.
If you could only submit one type of stock for the rest of your DA life, what kind would it be?
Oh, probably model. Actually I kind of hate all
What Makes Stock Rock for You with AeirmidStock & Resources
Thank you to Aeirmid for being my interviewee!
You've been on DeviantArt for several years now and have been photomanipulating for many of those, in terms of the yearly increase in availability of stock and resources on the site do you feel that it has it helped or hindered your personal creativity?
:iconaeirmid: Yes! In fact, I came to dA as a photomanipulator, LOL! It has been a lot of fun to watch the stock community develop over the years. It has especially been inspiring to watch the stock providers who have been here for a long time grow and change, while maintaining the high quality of their galleries. It has also been inspiring to see newer stock providers who are coming up these days, with their exciting ideas and vision. So, really, I feel like over the 9 years since I joined, the dA stock galleries have inspired me greatly.
One thing that has hindered my personal creativity, though, is the fact that there are a few stock providers who, while inc

Winners of the Craft a Mo' ContestHuge congrats to our winners, and a big thank you to everyone who took part in the contest and grew Mo's for Movember this year!! You are all stars!!
What is Movember?
During the month of November each year, Movember asks men across the world to grow a moustache (or Mo') with the aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Together, we are truly changing the face of men’s health.

Digital Art - Mixed MediaGalleries Month
What is Mixed Media?
Digital Mixed Media refers to deviations that have been created using combination of at least two DIGITAL art forms: digital painting, airbrushing, 3D objects, fractals, photographs, vectors, etc. There is a misconception that this category is meant for artworks combining both traditional and digital techniques, however this is not true, as Traditional Art also has its own Mixed Media sub-category. In the case of an artwork created using both digital and traditional techniques, it's up to the artist to decide in which category it should go.
Mixed Media focusing on the formal, non-representational aspect of imagery, emphasizing lines, colors, generalized or geometrical forms.
Digital Art - AnimationGalleries Month
What is animation?
Animation is the illusion of movement created from the quick sucession of static images with minimal differences between them. Today there is a great variety of animation techniques that include traditional animation (a sucession of frames, drawn digitally or traditionally), stop motion (photographs of real life objects), 3D animation (created with computer software), rotoscoping (tracing a live action sequence, frame by frame) and a large etcetera.
The Digital Art > Animation gallery is intended for animations of all kinds, as long as they were made with digital mediums and they're NOT in Flash or video format (usually in GIF format).
If the animation was made with traditi
Digital Art - Drawings and PaintingsGalleries Month
The Digital Art - Drawings and Paintings gallery is one of the fastest growing galleries here on DeviantArt. Within the gallery, members of the community will discover a wide variety of styles as the possibilities for Digital Drawings and Paintings are endless. So what exactly are Digital Drawings and Paintings? Is there even a difference between the two? Well, in this article I will explain exactly what Digital Drawings and Paintings are as well as why they are indeed different.
Digital Drawings and Paintings Defined
Let's begin with something easy such as defining what is considered Digital art. Digital art is any artwork that is created using digital software and/or tools. In the simplest of terms, your art is considered to be digital if it was created using a device such as your computer, digital tablet (ie: iPad), a Nintendo 3DS, or even your cellular phone! Digital artists often will use tools to
Gallery Descriptions: Anthro Art [ Types ]Gallery Descriptions
The unique thing about Anthro art is that it can take different shapes, sizes, and forms! There is no "right" or "wrong" way to draw or portray Anthro art because like fantasy art, they do not exist so there is nothing to "reference" them off from. Only our imagination.
Here are some features of animals that have been anthropomorphized!
Objects like fruit, cars, toasters, etc. that have been anthropomorphized!

PE Gallery Descriptions: NonfictionPE Gallery Descriptions
Literature > Prose > Nonfiction
What belongs in the nonfiction gallery?
Loosely speaking, nonfiction is anything true. This includes stories from your childhood, journalistic accounts of what's happening in the world today, and opinions, even when they're about fictional topics.
So writing about why you think Loki x horse is the best ship ever could go to the Editorial gallery, but actually writing a story about the birth of Sleipnir belongs in (fan) fiction.
The Editorial gallery is a place to submit pieces that take a definite side. A review will let the reader decide whether or not they want to look into something, but works submitted here say 'this is my opinion, and here's why it's a good opinion.' A persuasive essay can be an editorial, too.Academic Essays is pretty self-expl

About Artists on Writers
Writers will always find inspiration in the visions of artists, always feeling compelled to tell the stories behind the moments captured in artists’ unforgettable images,
Artists will always find inspiration in the words of writers, always feeling compelled to lend visual reality and habitat to the characters described in the scribe’s haunting words.
Critics consider Maya Angelou’s most important writing to be her seven autobiographies, thinly disguised as novels, beginning with
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969). The depiction of her childhood rape, com
