Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 8 Ive been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artists works that I have come across. It started off as stock I cant 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.Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 84 years ago in Art Features More Like This

How to Commission an ArtistI've been commissioning artists for a little over two years now, starting with site money on GaiaOnline and moving to dA from there. One thing that's hard for me to ignore is the number of artists who are concerned about being scammed, either because they've gone through that experience before or because the stories and warnings of it happening all the time proliferate. Commissioners have their own concerns about being scammed by artists. The simple fact of the matter is that it happens.How to Commission an Artist6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
However, I think a good portion of the problem is that many people who want to commission an artist have no experience doing so, and it's not as easy to find instructions on it as, say, how to draw anime eyes. That's why I'm making this guide.
It should be noted that while I mention commissioning through other websites now and then, this is meant as to general guide, and all of the examples are from deviantart.com. Also, this does not

10) This is not a fashion statement or a way to be cool. It's not a fad.
I hate when people say this. I'm not doing it to fit in anywhere, how many popular kids do you know are cutters? Why would I want to fit in with people who are seen as stupid and lame? Why would I put an unnecessary label on myself in high school? Anyone who cuts to be in the "cool" crowd or does it just to be seen as a "true" goth needs to be slapped hard. It's also not some fad like silly bands or I<3 boobies bracelets. This in not some trade-able scars that are done for shits and giggles, It's serious. Anyone who thinks other wise gives ev

Sharks are more important than you thinkThe Earth is an ocean planet. 99% of all living space on it is water, and 80% of all species live in the ocean. We know from decades of careful research that the oceans have shaped this world - whenever something happened to them, whenever life in the oceans changed, life on Earth changed as a whole. We humans are a wave of extinction, a new event that is suddenly rippling across the tree of life. And as we interfere so strongly with this complex system of interdependence that has taken its shape in millions of years, we change the only world, the only home, our species has ever known.Sharks are more important than you think4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sharks have lived in the oceans for over 400 million years, since before the dinosaurs evolved. As apex predators, they are critically important to the food chain in the ocean and have significantly shaped the world through time. Sharks are intelligent, have long and short term memory and the ability to learn. And they are afraid of us. Most sharks won't come near us if we are not perfectly calm, because

Ok, there were less entries than the years before, but they were as great like always. Amazing concepts or nice shots with a beautiful quote that shows a strong message. Thanks to everyone for participating and taking the time to to create an entry!
Really, I enjoyed every single one I received!
I hope I can count on you next year too!
Racism is unfortuneately all time present and it will never ever end, but with this project I´m trying to get the people thinking about it and maybe recognizing, that every boy and every girl, every human being has the same rights, cause we are all different, but which is much more important we are also all equal!
