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.
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:
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

Inspirational Stock and Thank You FeatureI started this account a year ago, with no clear idea of what being a stock provider entailed or just how much work goes into making and providing stock.

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
Project Educate: Getting involved in 2014Now that our first Community Week of 2014 is about to get started, it's time to do another blog introducing the ways in which you can get involved in the group this year. A lot of people have found that projecteducate gives them a great platform to have their already awesome articles noticed. This is very true! projecteducate not only helps educate the community through what you write, but also gives you a chance to have your artistic voice heard. At the time of writing this blog we have over 1,200 members and over 2,000 watchers. This means that the blogs we submit go out to hundreds of people. So why not use this method of communication to share your knowledge, tips and insights?
Community Volunteer Weeks
This is when a Community Volunteer (CV) takes a whole week to educate you about a chosen art form. This is usually done through interviews, features, tutorials, educational articles and the occasional contest or chat event. If you think you'v

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!

I'd DD it if...
Ever wondered why a certain piece doesn't have a DD? Well I probably don't know either! I most likely can't tell you why a certain piece hasn't been DDd (unless it's in Stock), but I can maybe give you a hint as to how to get me, personally, to be more likely to feature something as a DD. (
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.
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'

Contest - In Space- ClosedHi Everyone,
today we ( :iconcd-stock: :iconevelivesey: :iconybsilon-stock: ) start with our new contest.
Our new theme is "In Space". Be creative and show us your imagination.
You are given 30 stocks below. Your work has to include min. 1 of each of us. From stockpacks you are allowed to take only one. You are free to use more than one stock from each of us. The size must be so, that we can see it without a loupe and we reserve the right to decline the entry, if we can´t see our stocks. Credit all stocks you used with a direct link (equal it is our stock or an other stock). Only legitimate stock is allowed (no Google or something like this).
Your artist comment has to include a statement, that this is a entry for the Contest "In Space" held by :iconcd-stock: :iconevelivesey: :iconYb

This monthly serie of mini-contests was set to help you get out of your comfort zone, try drawing and painting new things and combining them together.
Each month, you have 3 diffrent stock photos to take as a reference: you can attempt to use any or all of them - good for you - but to make it more fun, we've got prizes prepared for 3 types of works:

the 3 references together in one picture;
1 month Premium Membership for the most elaborate work;
1 month Premium Membership for getting out of the comfort zone.
You have 3 weeks for completing the challenge: this means that you have to submit your entry (or entries, max. 3) before the 24th of February. Also, to win one of the prizes, you must use all the 3 references.
You must be a member of Traditionalists to participate, and the entry needs to be done with

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 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!
The first person who can catch my 560,000th page view will receive a 3 month premium subscription and their choice of any two HQ textures or HQ packages! You must take a screen cap of the page view and send it to me via note (no cropping pleas
