I'm kidding -- sort of. There are so many AMAZING unrestricted stock accounts here on DA, you really don't need my shitty stock. Check out my faves:

Great Option: Copyright Free ImagesDid you know that there are tons of wonderful copyright free photos? They are called 'public domain images'. It takes a bit more to find the right one for your design (and the resolution is varied although not worse than a lot of DA stocks ), but hey, you don't have to worry about begging for model releases, waiting for permissions and so on! On the long run I bet you even save some time.Great Option: Copyright Free Images2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Desktop Nexus Alert UpdateOnce again the monster that is Desktop Nexus, and its plethora of incredibly stupid members raises its ugly head againDesktop Nexus Alert Update2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It annoys me no end that I seem to have to send out reminders like this every year or so about this site which needs killing slowly and painfully by the fire of a thousand suns.
Its members are now trying a new tack of apparently "crediting" and saying they have permission from all of YOU, yes, even you lurking in the back row there - you have apparently given them permission to redistribute YOUR work on desktop Nexus as wallpapers.
I might add, that if you have actually been idiotic enough to give somebody permission to redistribute your artwork in this manner, you and by granting and receiving permission - them - are still responsible for accurately providing the required credits as per your agreements with the original stock providers you used when creating your work. It is furthermore YOUR responsibility to make sure anybody

Arts and Health: The language of empowermentWhat is empowerment?Arts and Health: The language of empowerment2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Empowerment means different things to different people. I would say that, in general, it means that we are in a position of power such that we have a say in the way things happen in our lives. It means that we can act in ways that will bring the good things we desire into our lives or, if that isn't possible, act in a way that limits the amount of negativity that happens when bad things enter our lives.
It's about being able to make a choice between "I CAN do this" and "I WILL do this."
Contrary to popular belief, the truth is that no one can empower you for you. Empowerment must come from within. The good news is that it doesn't need to require hours of psychotherapy to find it. It starts simply with language.
Yes, really. How often do you put yourself down? How frequently do you begin sentences with, "This may sound crazy/silly/stupid, but . . ."? Do you realize that every time you use words t
Improved DMCA Reporting SystemImproved DMCA Reporting System2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Hello, deviants! In an effort to keep the community informed and to provide the best possible experience for our members, we wanted to inform you of changes to our reporting system.
DeviantART is dedicated to protecting our artists, and in an effort to be able to more quickly handle complaints by deviants who have had their rights infringed on, we have changed the way we receive complaints from the artist or the copyright holder.
In the past, we took reports by the copyright holder in two different ways: An informal report via the Report Violation tool and a formal complaint via contacting the Help Desk. While both of these methods were effective, they presented many setbacks.
The informal report did not gather all the necessary information for a formal copyright complaint and was prone to misuse by well-meaning deviants who would attempt to report images they did not own the copyright to
MCR Thank You ProjectI started a Thank You project for MCR. I have had many people already contribute to it and I have even had support from Cassie The Venomous (also known as Poison and Fire) from AltPress. All I need for this project is a picture of you holding a sign that reads 'thank you' (in what ever language you want!) with you name and country also on the paper. That's it! I'll put all of these photos to the song 'The World is Ugly' and post it on Youtube.MCR Thank You Project2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll then put the video on a DVD and send it to Gerard via his fan mail address. Gerard said that he would read EVERY LETTER we send. So if I send a letter with the DVD, he'll read the letter and [hopefully] watch the video. Sound like a plan? Okay then!
You can email the pictures to me at RareMCRmusic@gmail.com.

The Anti-Cliche ChallengeDo you see the same stock being used over and over? Do you find that you do the same theme and technique over and over?The Anti-Cliche Challenge2 years ago in Personal Journal More Like This
No matter how you see a cliche (with the same stock, or continuous style), in the long run, such images can become trite from being overly used. Not that it's a bad thing to have your own particular "style" because it does make it easy to identify your deviations. Still some photomanipulators do change their style and technique now and then to give their gallery a fresh look.
For me, the stock below are examples of stock that have been overly used. Editing or using them in a completely different way would "break" the cliche.
What would you do in an Anti-Cliche deviation?
Would you take overly used theme stock and place them in a different environment and edit them to look completely different?
Or, would you take the same theme stock
