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 & Resources
Section I: Introduction
Let’s talk about stock focusing around nature. This is my niche in the stock community. I’m not a big model and I love to be outside shooting animals and their environments. I’m sure many of you also enjoy that too. So let’s jump right in!
Section II: Shooting Nature Stock
What Camera should I use?
You don’t need an expensive camera to shoot nature stock. What you do need is a good camera that’s trusty and can take abuse. A vast majority of the stock in my gallery was shot with a point and shoot canon powershot. The camera worked well and still does despite the sand in it. The big thing you need to watch for when choosing what camera to use that is within your budgte is the image quality and size. DeviantART’s stock policy states that all stock images must be at least 1000x1000 pixels. My recommendation is try to stick with a

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.My DeviantArt Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
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.

Creating a Beautiful Fractal ImageThere are so many beautiful fractal images in the art world...Creating a Beautiful Fractal Image2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
...and the ones here at Deviant Art are no exception! The images are as diverse as each person who creates it. I am a lay-person on the subject when it comes to explaining the art itself. Simply put...fractals are based on Mathematical Equations. The how and the why of this explanation still eludes me, but the beauty of the images keep my creating them. For information about the underlying mathematics check this Wikipedia link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractals
This journal will look at the elements that go into creating a beautiful Fractal Image, rather then the complexity of the base mathematics.

The Textures Feature Vol. VHi everyone!The Textures Feature Vol. V1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's time for my textures feature again. I will be presenting artists and artworks to you which stood out to me while wandering around in the resources department these past weeks and months. Before I do, I'd like to use the opportunity to ask you if you'd be interested in other journal topics than just features. There's some things here on deviantart that bug me and since everyone has their own voice, it might me a waste not to use mine in order to talk about certain topics. I will certainly make a poll about this as well, but if you happen to read this, I'd be glad to hear if you're interested in reading about critical things like art theft, especially resources-related. Let me know in the comments!
Moving on to the textures feature:

1. How did you join dA?
I had this friend in high school that had an account on DeviantArt back in 2002 or 2003 or so. But back then both DA and my internet connection were slow as hell, the page loads took ages, and I kept scolding him "Can't you show me any of your drawings that aren't on that crappy slow website!??". Back in time I used to have my own website for my art and story's. It was really common to have your own site in that time, as there were no social media websites or whatsoever and back then all of us internet people were programming nerds (or so I like to pretend -- to make me appe

Stock and Resources Galleries Pt. 5Galleries MonthStock and Resources Galleries Pt. 51 year ago in Art Features More Like This
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
PE - S and R Keywords and your StockKeywords... what are they... how do they work, and why are they important?PE - S and R Keywords and your Stock4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What are they...
Keywords are descriptive words added to the information on your submitted deviation.
How do they work....
Keywords are essential when any DeviantART user looks for any kind of artwork, in any gallery using the search feature. Just like when you use an internet search engine like Google to research something. Whatever you type into a search engine, is a "keyword"
Why they are important....
The fundamental purpose for sharing stock and resources on DA (or anywhere else for that matter), is to enable other artists, to FIND and USE your work.
Artists search for stock using DA's integral search engine. Which ultimately runs off "keywords" So one of the most fundamental things you can do to aid the exposure of your stock, is to apply the right keywords to it when you submit it.

Lesson: Easy Basic Editing in LightroomLesson: Easy Basic Editing in Lightroom 1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Photoshop Lightroom is a great program which gives you a plenty of editing tools, it's a great starting point to turn your image from a pale, flat one to a beautifully touched photo.
Get your Lightroom ready and start doing these few steps with me !
Into the " Develop " section you gonna find " Basic " Panel, then do the following ;
Step 1 : Exposure
increase to give your image more light. for below photo i preferred +1.26
ٍ Step 2 : Contrast
Increase a bit, for me I don't like the black areas to be so black but I like the photo to be well contrasted. +22
Step 3 : Highlights
For the highlighted area. sometimes highlights kills details, so my settings is -13 .
Step 4 : Temp (temperature )
To add warmness (yellowish) or coldness
