Invaluable advice for improving your portrait photography, check out the roundup above for all of the articles!

I like to believe that improving our stock photography is a goal we all share, and it doesn't matter if you take model shots, landscape shots, building shots or object shots, and everything between.  There are giant swathes of tutorials, guides and help if you ask for it for improving all aspects of your stock photography - there is no excuse for not taking pride in your work and doing the best you can to improve, or for not knowing how to make the best use of your camera, surroundings and lighting :)

GOD DAMNIT KATY :<  I hate these things.
So. Much. :|


Astralseed tagged me.  Please don't anybody else tag me.  Unless you want my death stare. :stare:


1. How tight do you like your underwear?
Just tight enough to show my VPL

2. A train is headed towards some city, another train is headed towards another city.  Both trains travel 362 miles before intersecting, with one train going 13mph less than the other.  How much later did the other train leave?
Can I have a diagram please?

3. If you peed rainbows, what would it taste like?
It would taste DELICIOUS.

4. If you had 7 legs and only one arm, would you walk, wobble, or other?
I would scuttle.  Like an awesome scuttling thing.

5. Do you smoke shampoo?
My brain smokes when I think about things.

6. How often do you wear your clothing inside out?
Once in a blue moon.

7. The world is ending because it's being hit by giant meteors, will you listen to Aerosmith?
Can I listen to Aerosmith whilst stealing a shuttle to escape from the face of the planet?

8. Naked snow angels, yay or nay?
Chilly.

9. Will you take her to the next level? 
I'm not sure any response I give is SFW

10. I say WaWa, you say?
Take that dummy out yer mouth our kid!

I tag Nobody.  and Everybody. (Because I would hate for Nobody to feel singled out.) **

1. If Ronald MacDonald arrived at your party would you cry or would you ask for a macn'cheese?
2. If you saw a £50 note half hidden under a pile of fresh dog poo would you pick it up anyhow?
3. Raisins or Sultanas?
4. Enterprise or Millennium Falcon?
5. If Lady Gaga dropped her funky purse, would you give it back to her or would you make off with it and sell it on ebay?
6. You are elected to be the next President of the US, who would you add to your "list" of "people to get rid of" first?
7. You are elected to be King/Queen of the Universe, what would your first ruling be?
8. Jack Frost, or Queen Elsa?
9. Your perfect job is...
10.  Low fat Thursdays or Full fat Fridays?   (I'm craving steak and chips, don't judge me!)

**I take this back, I specifically tag PirateLotus-Stock CelticStrm-Stock Aeirmid kirilee Tasastock Quoth-Raven because.  I am annoying. You're welcome :)

The Stock and Resources gallery on DeviantART is a digital treasure trove, filled from top to bottom with creative, imaginative, beautiful, unique and inspirational images - all waiting for you to turn them into masterpieces.

It goes without saying that Stock and Resource providers are incredibly generous with their skills and time providing all these wonderful things for you to use, often spending weeks, hours, months preparing, creating, photographing, editing their stock to post to DA.

Sometimes, they need a little help. A little something back from you the art community who benefit so much from their hard work.

kirilee is one such stock and resources provider who needs just a little help from you right now, so please, go check out her page and her Pozzible campaign to give one final push to reach her goal!! :heart:

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED! KIRILEE HAS REACHED HER GOAL!!!

Stock and Resources News April 2014

Tue Apr 15, 2014, 9:51 AM

CO MUN IT TY



You guys rock, and it goes without saying that the time, effort, creativity and drive from the stock and resources community at large is phenomenal, and you all make that happen!

We've seen a great increase in new members of the community - so welcome to you all!

We've also seen a really good increase in the quality of stock and resources being submitted which is really good for the entire gallery so big thumbs up!

:bulletgreen: In the mean time whilst you are all being very creative now spring has sprung we are asking for suggestions of how you would like US to help YOU :)   Features? Contest ideas? Off the wall inspiration interviews? More exposure? More/less/different DDs? 

Feedback from you is vital to us if we are to continue supporting you in the ways that mean the most to you, but unless you tell us what those ways are, we can't read minds! (Unlike deviantTHOUGHT :D )
Drop us a line, send a pigeon with a scroll, note us, email us, leave a comment here!!

Ongoing miscats



Yep still happening, your continued patience, understanding of the difficult situation and the sheer volume of submissions we have to try and catch is appreciated.  I would like to take a moment to reiterate the fact that we are volunteers, this isn't our "job" and we don't get paid for spending oodles of time on the site.  We do this because we know its a big concern for the community at large and we do our best to make a big dent in the problem areas. 

Shouting/ranting/flaming at artists because they simply don't understand our stock and resources guidelines or perhaps don't speak English as a first language is never ever (ever ever) going to be ok.  :stare:

By all means talk to them - in fact we positively encourage you all to get out there and talk to these artists who might be posting images that are not stock or resources, they are still part of our community!  A kind word and a little time taken to make sure they understand what the issue might be is a far far better way to help people and improve things.  Speak their native language? Even better!! Translation problems can make a simple subject completely confusing, so be a little patient, show a little kindness and give our big big community some love :)

Sub Category alterations



We've had 2 recent changes to our gigantic category tree which should hopefully clear up a few confusing issues

:bulletred:

Line art & Character Templates

www.deviantart.com/resources/l…   Has been RENAMED :)  
There has been for some time now huge confusion about where artists should be posting their character designs and this sub cat ended up collecting them all which is no good when the vast majority aren't designed for other artists to use.  To be completely clear -

:bulletpink: Personal/unique character creations or character stat sheets should NOT be posted to lineart and character templates.  They are purely artwork and need to be posted to the most appropriate traditional or digital art category.

:bulletpink: BLANK/EMPTY character sheets FOR OTHER PEOPLE TO USE AND FILL OUT should be placed in the line art & character templates sub category.

:bulletpink: If you have unique character designs in this sub cat they will be earmarked for being moved, we are more than happy to help you move your own if you have a lot, just drop any one of us a note and we'll get them moved for you.

:bulletpink: On the same note ADOPTABLE art/characters should be placed in the deviantart related/devious fun/adoptables www.deviantart.com/darelated/d… category NOT into the line art & character templates resources gallery!

:bulletred:

Literature Templates

www.deviantart.com/resources/l… Has been CLOSED for further submissions.  This sub category has for a long time been superseded by the stock images/premade backgrounds sub category which essentially does the same job. 

:bulletpink: Anybody currently trying to look for literature templates would be hard pressed to find any valid submissions in the past 12 months and the majority of the submissions in there are miscatted literature pieces which will be moved to a more appropriate literature gallery over the next few months. 

:bulletpink: Once this sub category is empty it will be removed from the category tree.  So any future literature templates/backgrounds can be posted to stock images/premade backgrounds www.deviantart.com/resources/s…

March Daily Deviation Roundup



Is here -

:bulletpink: REMINDER - we need your suggestions!! Without suggestions from you, the community, great stock and resources can easily be missed by our 3 pairs of eyes, so please keep on sending suggestions to us!  Don't be put off or concerned about sending us lots and lots, we like spam from you all :D  

Even if your suggestions are not always given a daily deviation all 3 of us regularly feature stock and resources in news articles and feature articles so theres a very good chance the stuff you suggest to us will get exposure in other ways!

Game Of Thrones: Stock FeatureGame of Thrones: Stock Feature
     To celebrate the premiere of the new season of Game of Thrones tonight, I decided to do a quick feature. We all love fan art. We're inspired by movies and shows to create art based on the characters we love. To achieve our goals, we need a reliable source of stock and references. So what are we to do? Well, take a look at this list of stock providers who look like the Game of Thrones characters we love or love to hate. Remember to follow the individual stock provider's terms of use when using their stock. By downloading it, you agree to abide by those terms.

Deviant For: 3 Years
     Welcome to the fifth volume of the weekly "In The Stock-Light" feature series. This series is all about featuring stock providers in our community! Each week we will be exploring the galleries of different stock and resource providers.If you know of a stock provider whom you'd like to see featured, please send me a note titled: "In The Stock-Light Suggestion." For the beginning of this series, I will be focusing on providers who have been on dA one year or less, or have less than 20k pageviews.  Keep in mind that each stock provider may have a slightly different set of rules regarding the use of their stock. By downloading and using their stock, you agree to abide by their terms of use. Remember to follow them as per each individual provider's instructions. 

Daily Devation Suggestion RemindersHiya Darlings,
     Today I'd like to send out a reminder for what I look for in a Daily Deviation suggestion. We've all seen the classic DD comment about how so-and-so does great work, but they never get featured. Well, there's a very easy solution to that problem. Suggest them! There are just a few things that you need to consider before sending me or the other Stock & Resources CVs a Daily Deviation Suggestion.
:bulletpink: What type of stuff do you feature?
 


     - I can only feature submissions listed under the Resources & Stock category of deviantART. For all other categories, please check out this handy guide:

:bulletpink: Have they been featured with a Daily Deviation within the last six months?
      - This is a very easy thing to check out. The way I do it when I'm checking to see if they've had one in the last six months is by ad

News from Stock and ResourcesLine-art & Character Templates Gallery
The Line-art & Character Sheets gallery has been renamed to "Line-art & Character Templates" in hopes of less confusion going on there.  The gallery is meant for line-art (there seems to be no problem with this) and the less-understood item called a character sheet template.  These are character sheets that have NOT been filled out yet, and are available for others to use.  
Pre-filled character sheets need to be placed in Digital Art, or wherever is appropriate.  As a reminder, please only place resources for others to use into the Resources & Stock Images gallery.  We are putting some extra focus into this sub-gallery to get it nice and shiny!
If you need help moving your filled-in character sheets out of the stock gallery, give one of us a holler :)

Important: Have you Notified your Stock Providers?Hi all,
I just wanted to take a quick moment out from registering people for the Photomanipulation Tournament to bring to your attention an issue that is plaguing our community.
I think a lot of people think that, with the new Mentions system, there is no need to notify stock providers when you use their work. This is untrue! There are a few of reasons why you still need to notify them via note or comment, as per their preference, when you use their stock:
1. Some people turn their Mentions off because they get to be annoying. Thus, if you don't tell them, they may never see your gorgeous work.
2. Stock providers like to keep track of your work, and notes/comments help with that.
3. If your stock provider doesn't see your work, he/she can't give you love!
4. It is almost always in a stock provider's Terms of Use to NOTIFY OF USE. If you cannot follow the TOU (including notifying them via note or comment), please don't use the stock.

Awesome Contests



Get submitting, get involved!

CONTEST EXTENDED A WEEK*EDIT* Woohoo!! We have some entries!!
Hello everyone!! It's been a while since I last held a stock challenge for stock artists but in the spirit of the new year here you go.
Theme
What if a mirror isn't all it seems. What if your reflection wants to keep you on your side? What if you are able to climb through a mirror but your reflection keeps standing in front of you, blocking your way? You try to touch the mirror without your reflection touching the same place. Maybe the cold surface isn't the mirror you're touching, but the cold flesh of your doppelganger, pushing back, keeping you on your side.
The theme is 'Through the Mirror'

  Photomanipulation Tournament 2014Something awesome this way comes!!!!
We are excited to introduce our newest photomanipulation challenge to the community. This is a series of battles to determine who can out-manipulate the other teams. This is a super long journal, but please take a minute at least to skim it and find out what this exciting challenge is all about. If you want to register, there are instructions at the bottom.
We are seeking prizes! If you are able to help, please leave a comment on this journal or contact Aeirmid.
What is a manip-off?
The manip-off is a series of "battles" in which rival teams/individuals challenge one another to reach beyond their photomanipulation skills and create something awesome. It's a battle to the death, and only one person or team will emerge victorious. We are looking for photomanip "champions," so there are three "rounds" of manipulations plus a championship round to choose a winner.

  Valentine's Day Contest! + Kiriban:house: my little life

KETO! I've recently made a lifestyle change. I'm one of those people who reddit too frequently. I stumbled upon /r/keto one day and I've been hooked since. I'm eleven days in and eight pounds lost so far. I'm hoping to lose a total of 30 pounds so I can fit into my old clothes! (yay). Unfortunately the last year has been a bit of a roller-coaster and I've gained a lot of weight :( But as I said, this is a lifestyle change for me, not a simple diet or fad that will fade. Something to help me stay healthy and give me more energy! Have any of you made any lifestyle changes recently? I'd love to hear about them!

2012 and 2013 Stock Use Feature Special

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 30, 2013, 11:34 AM

Almost there!



As quite a few of you have probably noticed from reply spam, I've been busy trying to catch up with all those outstanding comments from people who have used my stock, I'm happy (and relieved) to say the end is in sight, as I currently have only about 400 comments dating from 2013 to get through, your patience with me has been very much appreciated :heart:

As ever, this is just a small selection from the many many hundreds of pieces of artwork that has been made with my stock each year.  Some of these are from 2012, and some from 2013 that caught my eye as I was browsing my faves gallery this afternoon.

You can browse through the entire collection here -  2013 Stock Use Collection 2012 Stock Use Collection honestly its worth a look for the sheer variety and imagination on display, and it quite humbles me to see my stock used in so much wonderful artwork!!

2014



As usual I have several new years resolutions that I will probably break half of in the first month, but there is one thing I'm going to promise right here and now.  There will be more model stock in 2014 since I have done so little in 2013 due to time and work constraints which is very frustrating when I see all my wonderful fellow stockers producing brilliant new stock all the time :) Thank you to everyone who has made 2013 that little bit easier to bear :love:

For now, I wish you all a magnificent 2014, may it bring you a little love, a little happiness, a little excitement, a little joy, and an awful lot of creativity and inspiration :heart:
