ONE WEEK REMINDER: The Illuminated World ContestStock & ResourcesONE WEEK REMINDER: The Illuminated World Contest2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig

Manips for Charity ProjectHiya Darlings,Manips for Charity Project1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'm about to ask for your support on a project. I am reaching out to the photomanipulators and digital artists on this one. It is strictly for charity and non-profit. For some of you, it may be asking too much. I understand, but for those of you who are willing to participate, I will give you unlimited free access to my exclusive stock gallery. I don't have much in the way of points to donate to this venture. Though for every person that participates* I will give them anything they want with no amount limit out of my exclusives folder. I have already donated one artwork to the cause and intend to make a few more. Those who donate will also be featured at The-Stock-Directory and Fantasy-Paradise. Keep in mind that this is not a traditional contest with winners, but a collective group effort to help out the sanctuary.

Stock and Resources PE: Premade BackgroundsStock & ResourcesStock and Resources PE: Premade Backgrounds2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Premade Backgrounds are a popular resource for both stock providers and artists. They can become a wonderful learning tool for beginner artists, or those simply seeking a bit of inspiration. They also can be a source of uncertainty if certain protocols are not followed.
What you need to know about Premade Backgrounds:
What they are:
- They are the photo-manipulations of the Stock & Resources world. They typically consist of two or more images that allow for adaptation and redistribution that are properly credited.
- They must be at least 1000 x 1000 pixels. They also need to be usable and available for other artists to include in their finished art piece.
They must come from resources that allow adaptation and redistribution:
- Your own photographic (etc.) resources.
- Other stock providers who give permission to use their images for premade backgrounds.
- Some public domain images. Note: Not all
Stock and Resources PE: Pre-Cut ImagesStock & ResourcesStock and Resources PE: Pre-Cut Images2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
What you need to know about Pre-Cut Images:
Pre-cut images can be a very handy resource for artists looking to save some time on the extraction process of stock. These images are isolated from their primary background in a .png or .psd format. These resources should be well extracted with a clear attention to detailed removal, and a lack of stray particle pixels.
What these should contain:
- They should come from resources that allow for redistribution, typically your own images.
- The pre-cut image should have its original source cited in the artist’s comments, including your own images.
- They should meet the minimum size requirements of 1000 x 1000 pixels.
What these should not contain:
- They should never contain Google, celebrity, anime, movie screen shots, or retail website images. These so-called “renders” are not permitted in the Stock & Resources gallery.
- They should not be s
