Welcome to Art History - Stock and Resources MonthHello! Welcome to Art History - Stock & Resources month!Welcome to Art History - Stock and Resources Month3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
All November, deviants in the community will be posting articles about the history and current state of, as well as some general information about, Stock & Resources. To get involved with articles, head to the sign up sheet.
But you don't just have to write articles! You can participate by spreading the word, commenting on articles, or maybe hosting an Art History-related contest! Let us know if you've participated, and we will make sure it's seen by the community.
A Brief Overview of Stock
What does "Stock & Resources" mean? The terms "stock," "stock & resources," "stock and resources," "resources," and "resources and stock images" are typically used interchangeably. The gallery descriptions ma
Stock and Resources UpdatesLETS TALK ABOUT STOCK "REQUESTS"Stock and Resources Updates3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Every year we get excited, eager, passionate new stock providers entering our small but growing community, and every year these new stock models in particular get targeted by a small group of "requesters" Those of us who have been on the site for more than a few years recognise the types of "requests" I'm talking about and know to absolutely avoid them at all costs, but its something that I've seen more and more regularly over the last few months, and its definitely a concern.
There are standard "pose requests" that are NOT requested for the "artist" to work from. They are simply asking you to take photos of yourself in provocative poses so they can get off to your stock.
Firstly - please keep in mind that the images you are providing to artists are STOCK ART - they are first and foremost designed to provide artists with useable, useful references, either for traditional art, or digital art or whatever media they choose to create
PE Article: Tips and Advice 'Crediting Resources'One issue that we need to stress on deviantART is to credit your resources you use in your artwork. Crediting is a problem because a lot of people aren't doing the above.Most Stock Artists have individually tailored rules to suit their own personal level.PE Article: Tips and Advice 'Crediting Resources'3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You must abide by these rules!
Often they include that they want full credit to be given to their use of stock. This is really simple!
All you need to do is..
Include a link/thumb of the stock used. People want to see what the stock has become!
If you don't know how to get the [link] or :thumbxxxxxx: It's simple.
Just copy and paste the URL of the Resource you used and the [link] will appear! For the thumb code, each deviation has one which is listed at the bottom right of the deviation itself or by pressing the small arrow upper right hand corner which gives you some options to share said deviation or to get the thumb code.

Project Educate: Basic Photography TerminologyPhotography TerminologyProject Educate: Basic Photography Terminology4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is a term that refers to the way the lens blurs the image and the aesthetic quality of that blur. Some lenses cause the image to blur that is pleasing to the eye, whereas others blur in a more unpleasant or distracting way. It is considered good practice to have the subject of the image in focus, while the background is blurred. Bokeh occurs in the part of the image that lies outside the depth of field and photographers sometimes use a shallow focus to make the out of focus regions more prominent.
Depth of Field
This refers to how much of the scene is in focus. In portrait or macro photography, it is better to have a shallow depth of field and keep only part of the image in focus, as opposed to landscape photography where you'd generally want a larger depth of field and keep everything in focus.

Premium Content Platform and your Stock.What on earth is the Premium Content Platform??!!Premium Content Platform and your Stock.3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Please read the following official HQ article about Premium Content Platform, It will answer your initial questions!
What does this strange magic mean for stock and resource providers?!
Well that depends on you - the stock or resource provider. We all know that for some years now many of us have been offering "exclusive/donation/pay for" stock/resource packs that require artists to make a paypal donation/or send us DA points. The content is then emailed to them, or a link is sent to give them access to this paid for content.
We all know its the biggest pain in the ass going. Emails back and forth, trying to get paypal donation buttons to work, endless frustration with artists not being able to get hold of the content they have paid for because their email won't accept large files. Yep - we've all been there!

This is a series of articles where we interview a deviant who is both a stock provider and a stock user.
Our third interview is with HermitCrabStock/annewipf!
You have been on your art account, annewipf, for 4 years. Did you have any accounts before that one?
Yes. At first, I mostly did traditional artwork and I did a series of watercolour and acrylic paintings about « The Lord of the Rings ». So, I opened an account on a French site dedicated to Tolkien, called « Tolkiendil » http://www.tolkiendil.com/ (I'm no more in it : not enough time, and others of interest) ; then, I did a series of fairies, an opened an account on Elfwood http://wipf.elfwood.com/ Then, navigating on the web, I discovered dA, but, at the time, we had to answer to a big questionnaire and my English was not very fluent (I did some progress since I'm here!), s
