Free Stock and Resources outside dAPlease fave if you find this journal usefulFree Stock and Resources outside dA6 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

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

Allpose: *Last* last call for booksIf you ordered books from me, they should be going out within the next 5 days.Allpose: *Last* last call for books2 years ago in Personal 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

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!

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: Line1 year 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

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

The Rules: Special Extended EditionAfter over a year of providing stock, I thought it was about time I clarified a few things about my rules and what they mean. Clearly, some people still don't understand. (Or wish to read them? But that's a completely different problem altogether) This journal is intended to spell out every situation I can think of to help people understand them a bit more. In the past three days, I have found 10 deviations from artists who have either not notified me of stock use, or did not credit.The Rules: Special Extended Edition7 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Rules of Stock use for Traditional Purposes and Photomanipulation purposes are quite different, actually. Those traditional artists who have noted me with questions regarding stock use for references have discovered that the rules are a bit more lax on them. I shall splain.
The rules for photomanipulation have been updated as of August 5th, 2009 to the following:
The most important rule of them all is simple: Use, Credit in your artists description and LINK ME
A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and ArtWith movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and Art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend
Formation of the Time VortexThank you for visiting my journal entry,Formation of the Time Vortex2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This concept is based on the comic and TV series Doctor who, special consideration is to be given to Writer; Alan Moore and Dave Lloyd.
It was an arduous task that our space fleet was attempting to accomplish. My colleague and friend known commonly as Omega, had determined that the formation of a wormhole that spanned the length of the entire universe would allow us access to any point in spacetime. It would require a tremendous power source. It was determined that the star in the constellation of Ao, known as Qqaba would make the best choice for our experiment. Our ships were protected by a shield technology called a Statis Halo. This combination of Negative energy and deflector shielding based on Tachyons, kept our ships from being sucked into the resulting blackhole. This Halo also allowed our ships the ability to remain relative to in real time, relative time to Gallifrey, as the compressed spacetime swirled from the event horizon below. It

"The Spanish-American War was a conflict between Spain and the United States. It came as a result of American intervention during Cuba's rebellion against Spain. America did not approve of Spain's methods to crush the revolution, and even back then felt like to police of the world. So one day they went up to Spain and said "Oh mai god. Stahp.". Spain was like "LOL NOPE" and continued to treat the Cuban people like shit. Then they decided to blow up a US ship because YOLO. America sat pissed off as Spain proceeded to do a lot of dick-waving, which included calling Americans nasty toads and President McKinley a weak little pushover. However, it was a bright day for American political cartoonists. Anyway, America finally got fed up and said "YOU WANT TO GO TO WAR?! FINE, COME AT ME BRO!" and Spain was like "We don't want a war.
