Free Stock and Resources outside dAPlease fave if you find this journal usefulFree Stock and Resources outside dA8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I updated and added new stuff on: March 9th 2014
before I started doing my own art, I was an avid incredimail email- stationary creator.
(All legal always with freeware, according to terms, with written permission etc)
For that reason I have collected a massive bunch of pages with stockphotos (free for profit reasons)
free & shareware fonts, plugin pages and so on.
I thought that it might be as useful for creating art for some of you.
The quality and resolution of the images varies so check yourself
I met several people who don't know much free stock outside dA..
although dA holds fantastic stock photographers and artists too! one can never have enough choice

As I am lately back with some manips, I thought its about time
to make a journal with some of my favourite stockers
Why they are my favourite? Well they are for several reasons!
Each of those who will be listed here, will have:
good to excellent quality,
Sizes which are usable beyond webpics shortest side at least 1200,
(that excludes cutouts, jewellery or any stuff you wouldn't need as primary object in your manip and seamless patterns)
Rules that allow commercial usage (at least on dA and on request for outside dA)
Rules that allow outside dA usage without being forced to slap the stockers name ON the artwork itself.
or Rules that are fully unrestricted
This includes stock-providers that take a few points for their stock, because I rather pay a few points if the TOU's & quality are grea

Basic Art Elements: LineHerro people! I've been giving this much thought and have decided to include along with our "Common Misconceptions" series a series based in the basic art elements followed by the principals of design. There are seven basic art elements as follows:Basic Art Elements: Line2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The purpose of knowing this list and understanding each element is to help you make good decisions compositionally as well as help you with formal analysis. Formal analysis is an identification of the basic art elements in a work of art which is useful in critique and also understanding the artist's choices in composition. Ideally, a piece that we would call "successful" would have each of the seven elements here present in some way, as well as the principles of design. A lot of our choices in art making can be either arbitrary or intuitive. Neither are inherently bad, but making choices that have a sound base in these elements will help you with some of the compositional conundrums we artists fa

Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 9 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 93 years ago in Art Features More Like This

SORRY IT'S TAKING SO LONG!! USPS raised their rates for people outside the US and I have to make sure I have shipping for everyone in one action. Thank you everyone for your patience. I love you all. (it's true)
I wasn't able to get rid of these books as easily as I was thinking...so I still have them.
I'm running low on the couples books but I still have plenty of the rest.
I'm open back up and would really like to sell them all. Please! 8D
They're super useful and I really want to see people use them. So stop by the store!
The USPS did away with surface to air shipping overseas. That means I, unfortunately, have to charge an additional $40+ to anyone outside of the US (except for Canada, I think). So be aware of that.
How is everyone doing, btw? ...school started and everything else!

Necks for anatomy practiceI need to see loads of examples before I can get something. So here's loads of necks doing the weird necky things that necks do.Necks for anatomy practice2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To get what's going on with the tangle of muscles and tendons catch necks in action. Watch people in cafes. Pause TV. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer has particularly good lighting for drawing.) Then check out how cartoonists simplify the confusion. Maybe even check out some anatomy to see what's going on beneath the skin. Each gives you a different piece of the puzzle.
Organized by where the head is relative to the shoulders, then by where the camera is. So each group should have the same muscles and tendons bulging out. (If you post drawings from any stock here, do check the stock artist's rules.) NOTE: Images marked with ⬅ are NOT stock. Use them for practice, but don't post. (There's only one image marked since there's so much great stock.)
If you stumble across good neck stock, especially with good shadows, I'd l

Trek fans, please take note and act!!!!My fellow Star Trek Fans,Trek fans, please take note and act!!!!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I think most of you know Bernd Schneider's extraordinary site, Ex Astris Scientia . Recently, he has posted a message about the number of his visitors declining. I feel saddened, as I am an old fan of his work, from my earliest days as a Trekkie from a decade ago.
I usually don't do such things, but now I'm asking you to spread the word: get yourselves to Ex Astris Scientia, follow the site on the social networks. Bernd deserves support from us, from all of us. Now the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many, and we are those many, regardless of our Trek preferences. TOS purists, Next Genners, Abramsverse fans, I call out to each and every one of you, spread the world, let's save Ex Astris Scientia from becoming abandoned amidst the torrential waves of the information superhighway!

Need references?Although drawing and painting "from life" is way much more effective and efficient than drawing from photos (I'll be writting a separate journal about this soon, no worries), you simply can't have a person to model for you every time you want to create something. And there are situations when you don't exactly know how to place that bloody hand or if the foot is drawn correctly. Similiar issues can happen with architecture, perspective... with everything you draw. Then, when you look for help, you may stumble upon Stock gallery and you find awesome things. Remember about crediting the used stock directly!Need references?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
