Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!
We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.
There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.
These are textures created digitally by

Daily Deviation FAQ
Resources Gallery Makeover (REMINDER)So all those sub cats...
Its no secret that the stock and resources gallery is HUGE. On a scale thats intimidating, complicated and a bit like a bottomless pit of sub, sub, sub, sub, sub cats.
Last year we were very lucky to have a bit of a makeover job in Resources/Fonts and Resources/Stock, however, we are looking with "new deviant's eyes" (Yes, we kidnapped new deviants and stole their eyeballs) to look at our gallery long and hard. HARD.
You can read more about whats going on with this huge project here - http://fav.me/d5xccty
What we'd love to get from you guys
Feedback and suggestions!
Do you know of sub cats that are completely obsolete that we could tidy up and get rid of?
Are there dark alleyways hidden in the maze of resources sub cats that need a light shining on them?
Can some categories be merged, or renamed to make them more logical/useful to todays deviant community?
This... to That #8Welcome to Issue 8

Muses of the MastersBeautiful, captivating, inspiring, complicated and often misunderstood - the women who became muses for their masters had more in common with the artists who painted them than might be seen on first glance.
These women from all walks of life often reviled and looked down on in their own time, have transcended their humble beginnings through canvas and paint to inspire and utterly captivate their audiences.
Elizabeth Rossetti (née Elizabeth "Lizzie" Siddall) 1829 - 1862
Elizabeth Siddal 1860 Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Born in 1829 Lizzie was first "discovered" by the artist Walter Deverell in 1849 who had close associations with Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Less than 2 years later, Lizzie was sitting almost exclusively for the jealous Rossetti.
Lizzie's life with the artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was turbulent and complicated, much like her relationship with Rossetti who d
Stock and Res Updates August 2013DeviantART's 13th Birthday Bash!
If you haven't yet seen, from all the dozens of recent journals and news articles published by the CV team and staff members, DeviantART's 13th birthday was a massive success and one that everyone seemed to enjoy immensely! I know Erin and I did!!!
Our Stock & Resources Treasure Hunt Chat event, and subsequent Manip Challenge was great fun both to organize and participate in, and if you didn't make it this time, don't worry! We are planning to do another treasure hunt event in the near future at an alternative time so that theres another chance to come and join us and maybe win some points and prizes!
Photomanipulation Winners will be announced ASAP!
Stock and Resources Chat Room
As a side bonus to the birthday bash, we felt it was important to have a chat room that is there for stock and resources providers to use for their own events or just for general chat, if you want to orga
Fantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 26I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artists
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

Celebrating Diversity #27The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to post an article with deviations outside of my area of expertise here on deviantART. Therefore I decided to browse away from Photography, and venture into areas that I know little about!
I strongly encourage you to step out of your zone of comfort and take the time to discover or re-discover other types of art. The world is full of wonder and beauty, we just need to take the time and open our minds to see even more of it - embrace the diversity of it!

HELP NEEDED!!! (on a new project)About Project 'stock-A-zine'...
As you all can read in the description of the Magazine Concept, I was looking for a challenge that could contribute to my personal portfolio. As a member of the deviantart stock community, I didn't have to think long or hard to figure out a subject for this project.
As in normal life, a magazine is compiled, designed and edited by teams of people with a various set of skills. As for this project... I can't do it all alone. This magazine is going to be (or I hope it will) a huge collaboration between me, the whole DA community (with any relation to stock) and deviantART itself!
English is not my main language, but I do alright, for online communities, I guess. At writing journalistic, editorial stuff, I know I can not compete with native English writers. Also the amount of written content in a magazine would be too much for one person to write in a considerable amount of time.
That's where I would like to call in the help of

Lets Talk About The Artists Who Provide StockDeviant Art has a vast amount of stock and resources for people (providing they give credit where its due) like me who want to create art.But have you ever wondered or were curious to know want went into finding photos which could be suitable to use as a stock resource for others to use this could be anything from models, skies, trees, close ups of peeling paint, tree bark or even water drops. Finding good quality stock or looking for the right image for your art piece takes time so along comes the stock artists who are like the rest of us photographers and artists they provide resources such as textures,brushes, PNG's created by them for others to use. Is it easy to use stock made by you so that other people can use it well,yes and no !!!!!. Skill and a lot of trial and error are factors to take into account oh and lots of practise /coffee
Lets start exploring the world of photo-manipulations not the easiest to do but then if creating art is what you like doing allow your

Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is. We absolutely agree, and couldn't let all that hard work go without recognition, so it's with great pride that we bestow the Deviousness Award for March 2014, to ... Read More
