ONE WEEK REMINDER: The Illuminated World ContestStock & ResourcesONE WEEK REMINDER: The Illuminated World Contest7 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
Hyenacub-Stock's Crime Contest So...what you all have been waiting for...contest! Woo! As those who voted would rather an art contest than a stock photo contest, that's what ye shall have. (We'll do a photography contest another time, hehe.)Hyenacub-Stock's Crime Contest2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So! Here's the scoop.
This contest is open to everyone! (And if you want to join that group, that's just icing on the cake. )
Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to draw awesomeness. The theme is "crime", of course, and you must use at least one model stock photograph from the group :iconcrime-stock:. You can either make a photomanipulation or use the stock as reference, so long as the picture is still very recognizable.
Community Feature Project: If I Could DD FEATURES!I would like to take a moment and thank you all for participating! This was a fun way to bring the community together and support each other. The images that you featured were fabulous, and it was a true pleasure to see them. I encourage you all to spread the love and support by visiting the features you may not have seen yet. Your features introduced us to new artists and gave exposure to beautiful art. This kind of togetherness is what our community is all about and why we are unique within the online art world. We are a large international family, not just members on a website. Hopefully we can do it again sometime! I wish you all love and the best this holiday season, however you may celebrate it!Community Feature Project: If I Could DD FEATURES!4 months ago in Art Features More Like This

Manips for Charity ProjectHiya Darlings,Manips for Charity Project2 years 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.

FAQ 809: Line By Line. Stock and Res Golden RuleToday we are going to take an in-depth look at :faq809: This particular FAQ is one that our stock community should know by heart. If you are submitting to the Resources & Stock gallery, you need to be familiar with it. As Stock & Resources Community Volunteers, we personally will not feature a resource as a Daily Deviation if they do not follow this simple list. This also includes personal commentary based on our own personal opinions and experience within the community as a stock providers and a photomanipulators. The personal IMHO portions may be a bit ranty, and you've been warned.FAQ 809: Line By Line. Stock and Res Golden Rule2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Size must be a MINIMUM of 1000x1000pixels (excluding vintage portraits that are relatively small and of low quality)

Community Feature Project: If I Could DDHave you ever wished that you could pick a Daily Deviation Feature? I'm sure we've all seen an amazing piece of art or stock that we wished could have a bit more exposure. Well, this is your chance! This December we are encouraging you to feature your fellow deviants with a journal of images that you would feature as a Daily Deviation if you could. So let's embrace the Holiday Season and spread some good cheer by joining in and featuring our community!Community Feature Project: If I Could DD5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The Game Plan
Create and publish a journal feature of images that you would choose for a Daily Deviation Feature from your preferred gallery.
(i.e. Stock providers would feature images from the Stock & Resources gallery. Photomanipulators would feature manips, etc.)
When your journal feature is live, link it back to your Community Volunteer's Community Feature Project Journal in the comments area.
(i.e. Stock providers will link to this journal. Photomanipulators will link to AbbeyMarie's jour

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

Stock and Resources: Policy ClarificationThe Stock and Resources community is an integral part of deviantART, both for having an active community of its own as well as providing high quality stock to all deviants.Stock and Resources: Policy Clarification3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
As this community has grown so much over the years, so has the amount of invalid stock and resources that have been provided by some deviants. The Stock and Resources community feels like this reflects negatively on them, the volunteers have a hard time trying to teach people about valid stock and how to use it correctly, and it gives an appearance that deviantART Staff tolerate so-called “art theft” or copyright infringement.
In this article our aim is to reinforce our policies regarding stock and stock use and clear up some misconceptions.

What are Invalid Stock and Resources?
In short, invalid stock or resources are anything which you do not have full permission to upload. This incl
