Stock and Resources Galleries Pt. 5Galleries Month
Specifically for the Resources/ Stock Images sub category of the resources tree, DeviantArt has provided guidelines for submissions relating to size, quality and usefulness as explained in our favorite FAQ 809 -
Images submitted to the Stock Gallery should be larger than 1000px on the smallest size - to promote good quality submissions and a basic standard across all types of stock image.
The Stock Gallery is split into many sub sub categories, not only to create a logical submission process, but also to aid artists searching for stock images.
Model stock photography contains 4 main areas, which are further broken down into full body, portrait, anatomy and nude in the adult sections.
It is worth noting at this point that all model stock photography should not contain sexually explicit poses as per DeviantArts submission policy and the following FAQ infor

Resources PE Week 15th - 21st SeptWhy Project Educate?
projecteducate is one of our main contact points for all the artists of DeviantArt to come together and educate themselves about a multitude of art related subjects, from techniques and hints and tips to DA specific information and help. By providing a central location the volunteer team can reach out further into their communities to guide and help more artists than ever before.
But we can't do it alone!
Help and support from as many community members as possible is essential to ensure success, and this is obviously where YOU come in!
Stock and Resources is hosting another Project Educate week this year between the 15th and 21st September, and its really not that far away, and we are looking for your help
As a guide here are journals from our 2012 Project Educate week -
INTRODUCTION - fav.me/d4tckwe
CONTEST - fav.me/d4tcnab
My DeviantArt StoryFor 10 years DeviantArt has been more than a gallery, more than a home page, more than a place to share art. Ultimately, I found DA whilst I was looking for something else, and I didn't realize at the time how pivotal that moment was, how important it would be for my future.
Discovery So Clear by parablev
DA appeared when I was looking for a way out and it gave me a chance to escape, a reason to see things afresh.
The Gateway by neverdying
I hadn't even considered that what I was actually looking for, was somewhere to belong, a feeling of inclusiveness and support.
SPN - Free Hugs by Sadyna
A way to explore all of the pictures and stories in my head that I was too unskilled to be able to put down on paper.
Learn to Fly by Ben-Kelevra
DA surrounded me with people who already knew how to fly, who could see fairy dust and paint the s

10 thousand thankyous!I've not had a chance yet to say thank you to everyone who sent me birthday wishes this year, so,
THANK YOU!!! I had a really lovely weekend with my family and had a chance to try out my birthday pressie, a brand new Nikon D7100 SLR I am very lucky, I know and ReapingFields spoils me This new cammy takes photos that are 6000x4000 with its 24mpx sensor which makes me gigglesnort when I compare it to my D80's 10mpx. Mind you, my D80 has been brilliant for the last 8ish years we've been using it.
Which leads me to also mention that HOLY CRAP I'VE BEEN ON DA FOR 10 YEARS!!!! D: D: (I completely forgot my DA birthday lol woops ) If you had asked me 10 years ago if I thought I might still be here in 10 years time, not only having been awarded Senior status on my journey, but also over 1 million pageviews on my 2500ish submissions, and to cap it all being given the incredible opportunity to be a volunteer for my beloved stock and resources commun
Modeling advice you should check out!
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

A Tribute to Robin Williams
Robin Williams Tributeby EmilyStepp
Why did we delay for more than a week the publishing of this remembrance? Because to properly reflect the impact of this loss on the millions of Robin Williams fans worldwide, we wanted to be sure to capture a true sense of the torrent of love for Robin pouring in from the community in the form of heartfelt portraits and other tribute art.
We chose the “best”
Monthly Theme VOTE and WIN POINTS:icontransparentplz:
All works here http://thefavouriteshowcase.deviantart.com/gallery/29360832
Hello dear members, watchers and visitors
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4
Gallery Descriptions: Traditional Art, part 1Galleries Month
Traditional Drawings and Paintings
These two subcategories of Traditional Art contain almost the same sub-galleries - the only exception is Technical Drawings in Drawings subcategory. There are many definitions to describe what paintings and drawings are and you can still add a huge "except..." at the end of each. General rule is: in drawing, you create the picture with lines, while paintings use filled shapes or surfaces. For painting, the medium is a combination of pigment and liquid (simply put), but some pictures done with dry media (such as dry pastel) can also be called paintings, following the previously mentioned definition.
Pictures focusing on the formal, non-representational aspect of imagery. They emphasize lines, colours and generalized or geometrical forms, deprived of reality and recognisable objects or beings. Very often confused with Surreal.
Fan Art Friday: PersonaHello and welcome to the 52nd edition of Fan Art Fridays I'll be featuring 10-15 pieces of fan art, by fandom each week. This week will feature art from the Persona series

Gallery Descriptions: Traditional Art, part 2Galleries Month
This sub-gallery is for three-dimensional or two-dimensional artistic compositions, made by putting together found objects not generally thought of as art materials.
Two-dimensional works made of a combination of other forms, often including photographs, newspaper clippings, or any other type of object which can easily be glued down.
An artistic genre of three-dimensional works, that branching from sculpture, are more about the concept than the form. They are usually designed for a specific site, but can be mobile, to transform how the space is viewed.
