UK Legislation for Orphan Works

Don’t Let the UK Government remove our rights to our artwork and photography!! This affects every single person who posts images on the internet! Please sign it (if you need to be a UK resident or citizen) and support us!
This is a complete disgrace and has been pushed though without thought or consideration to the artists and photographers whose rights they are taking away, all in the name of economic progress in a bill that has absolutely nothing to do with copyright.

Some things we should talk aboutThis journal is here to highlight, debug and bust some myths for you all of stuff that goes on ALL the time, and is in part spurred by some recent events that leave me somewhat baffled and perplexed over some of the behavior we've been recently seeing across the DA communities, particularly Stock & Resources, and Photomanip since we work so closely together (and its apparently time I wrote a new wall of text to you all.)More Like This
Every community has them. Those constant "issues" that make people angry and frustrated. Sometimes they can be easily solved with a little effort, and other times something just snaps and causes reactions that are far and away over the top. Here are some of our top faves.
Its time for everyone to take a nice soothing deep breath, its a long one!
There will be a test at the end.

Stock and Resources PE: Premade BackgroundsStock & ResourcesMore 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

How to Credit StockRecently I've seen a lot photo-manipulations where the resources used have been listed in a slightly slap-dash fashion. Things like "Resources by fuguestock" or simply pasting my icon at the bottom of the comments. Now I'm glad to be shown what artists have done with my photos, but I do ask in my guidelines (as do most stockists) that you paste a link to the image used in the comments. This is really quite important to me.More Like This

Everyone, please read. Suspicious "stock"Here is a huge list of "stock" accounts that are known to take images from Google, cut out a person or animal or object or something and claim it as their own "stock". This is NOT ok! Images come from all over the world and years on Google, we can never truly know, sometimes, who the real-true owner of that photo is. So unless you get permission from the photographer, the true photographer, it is not ok. Or unless, of course, they put out there...stating that it is free stock. The ones in the list, linked below, show images that were uploaded on here but found through Google. Some even on National Geographic!!More Like This
Just because there is no copyright symbol doesn't mean there is no copyright.

Important Information Regarding URLs -- UPDATE*** UPDATE: As of April 30, 2014 the older URLs appear to have been fixed by the dA developers. Please check your URLs to be sure yours are working once again, if not you may want to submit a ticket with the Help Desk. ***More Like This
It has recently come to my attention that the URL to my stock rules which is on all 2,013 of my deviations, no longer points to the stock rules journal. For some unknown reason, deviantART staff has changed the method of identifying our individual journals. Instead of our older URLs pointing to a specific journal, they lead you to your journal homepage.
I am not the only person affected by this change. I scoured my extensive watch list and looking at every stocker I personally watch and many of them have the exact same thing happening.
The following stockers may want to update their rules on their deviations:

I'm working on writing up a model release forms for both portrait photography I do and stock photography. Right now I have verbal agreements with my models. I really don't know how to write a model release form for stock photography. I found examples for one for regular photography, but I'm not sure if the template I found (http://asmp.org/tutorials/adults-model-release.html#.UtiIeZoo7IU) works for stock photography also.
What type of forms do you use for stock model releases? How do you word it? Thanks!

Providing the ability for content creators to become sellers and generate real earnings by making digital files of their high-quality work available for download. Sellers are able to set their own prices while retaining 80% of all revenue earned, and buyers are able to quickly get the things they want with the satisfaction of supporting the artists they love.
What is Premium Content?
The Premium Content Platform was built to represent high-quality content — the premier pieces in an artist's repertoire of work. We encourage the sale of everything from comics or stories for download, to high-res files like .PSDs, textures, tutorials, brush packs, and more!
Bringing You Closer to the CommunityMore Like This

As DeviantArt grows, we strive to find more ways to connect you with the things and people that matter to you most. After months of designing, testing, and engaging in community conversations around the shape of things to come, we're proud to announce a series of features that will bring you closer to the community.
Our guiding principles are to bring you a better, fresher, yet familiar site experience, giving you more power to do what you want and, more importantly, create deeper connections between your friends and favorite artists.
The Shape of Things to ComeYou want change on DeviantArt. Everyone here has something they would change. We do listen and, yes, we can’t get everything done. Still, as a community, with any change we change together because we are all here together.More Like This
We found major talent to join the DeviantArt team this year to help us assume responsibility for major change and deliver on it. In return, we will be calling on the whole community to exercise its responsibility of continuing to shape DeviantArt into the place where the global undercurrent of creativity feeds the future of popular culture.
DeviantArt is as binary as it is digital in its platform. We serve equally those who produce art as those who need to see art and engage with it. Creating the undercurrent is a function of tools as much as it is a function of community activity. Getting these two to work in unison has always been the secret sauce of DeviantArt – and every recipe for the sauce begins

After the poll we've had and the recent trend in stock providing, I've made an executive decision. Fear me and hear me ROAR! So here it goes:
From now on, regular stock that has been listed as premium content can be submitted to the regular gallery folders.
The Exclusive Stock that you use for contest or other exclusive purposes still go into the Exclusive Stock folder.
As much as I hated to do it, putting my regular stock up as premium content has virtually eliminated stock theft. I know a lot of you have done this as well. Hopefully this will help you during the submissions process and spread it out a bit so the Exclusives Folder doesn't overflow.

I feel higher than my lowest low--like a bruise healing nicely but still warm and tender with the garish purple hues. However, something special is on the way--I can feel it in my soul. What it is, I have no clue. Might be just waking up each morning (a nice prize, that).
I can tell it's time for me to hit the tutorials again--there is a concept I have for a set of photos, a triptych, that I am befuddled as to how to do with the software I have. It can't be that hard though. I just can't wrap my pea brain around it at this time.

CopingThings have been rough lately. I've tried working full time a few times, but after a few weeks I end up having anxiety attacks. I don't want anyone's sympathy, but I do expect some iota of decent human dignity.

Cosplay vs. Stock - For the love of CostumesStock & ResourcesMore Like This
Do you have a geeky side?
Do you love getting dressed up in costumes (especially when they relate to a favourite movie, comic, game or anime)?
Do you like having your photo taken in costume?
Then you are most likely to be aware of the term 'Cosplay'.
And if you are reading this journal, you are most likely know what 'Stock' photography is also.
But hey, let's break it down (because these two categories have a lot in common, but also, have some big differences as well).
AmenoKitarou - DreamOfDiscord
Cosplay is a derivative of two words, Costume Play - because that is exactly what it is. You dress up in a costume to look like a character from a popular culture reference such as movies, tv shows, games, anime, manga or comic books.
However, it is much, much more than that for a lot of cosplayers.
Many cosplayers pour countless hours, money, blood, sweat and

DYNAMIC AND ACTIVE POSING FOR STOCKStock & ResourcesMore Like This
Broadly defined, Action Stock is any photo-reference in which the subject is doing SOMETHING. That 'something' does not need to be extreme or particularly kinetic, it just has to show the effects of various forces on the bodies (or other objects) in the image. Perusing an artifact, sitting on someone's knee, even enjoying the aroma of a cup of coffee are great examples of actions that, when explored as stock images, can be of great value to artists.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with extreme, kinetic, over-the-top actions, either...
~ ~ ~
It's worth stating the obvious: if you are interested in exploring the more "kinetic" end of the action spectrum, know your limits. Don't work beyond your skill level and observe all necessary safety precautions; no shot is worth getting hurt over.

33 Years In 2013 was tough. A year with so many extreme ups and WAY-DOWNS as well. This seems to have been the norm for many people I speak to and associate with (or at least that's the overall impression I've gotten from peeps and meeps). Although I was overall inactive here on DeviantART compared to other years, I formed a much stronger bond with the people who I befriended here. Some people who were "online friends" became "Real Life Friends." I had to restart a new work-life in a field that I know very little about, and have so far been enjoying the experience very much despite the stress and problems that the job brings. Creativity has been booming as of late too (something that i didn't have much of during 2013). Prioritizing what's important in life is another aspect that I learned a lot about in dealing with last year's events. And of course there's the ongoing battle with health-related issues.

It was an awful smell.
It was just like a rotting egg,
Straight from the depths of Hell!
She tried to keep it secret,
By sitting in a group.
But it was really obvious,
When she said, "Who did that poop?"
She screwed her bright, red face up,
And blamed it all on Claire.
But later when I needed help,
The stench was round her chair!
She avoided my eye contact,
And ticked my work in green.
But she knew that her body smells,
Were foul and quite obscene.
I asked her what that smell was,
She said she'd not a clue.
I hope to God that eggy smell,
Was fart and not a poo!
Today the teacher farted,
My word, what had she ate?
I'll always remember what she did,
And now I'm thirty eight!

projecteducate is a group and all updates from individuals during their weeks listed below will be posted over there! So be sure to join or watch for the full updates! If you want to partake in Community Week by writing an article then just note the group with your ideas!
How it Works
projecteducate started with purely CV run weeks. Those were weeks focusing on a specific art form brought to you by your lovely Community Volunteers. As well as these epic seven days of awesome, we've now introduced two more themes which run on a bi-monthly basis. Those are Community Weeks, which include articles from members of the DeviantArt community - and Artist Toolbox Weeks which include a mixture of articles focusing purely on the 'tools' of the trade. If you're interested in either please note projecteducate!

Moving sale!Guess who just got a job offer in Kansas? That’s right, it’s me! Guess who is really really broke? That’s right, it’s also me! Moving halfway across the country is pretty expensive and I’d like to minimize the amount of money I need to borrow… So, I’ve got this awesome Etsy shop and now would totally be a great time to buy something! And, between now and April 1st, you can use the coupon code MOVING and get 15% off of any order $10 or more!More Like This
I’ve got all kinds of cool stuff! I might also be able to take a few commissions buuut they’ll have to be really quick stuff OR stuff you don’t mind waiting a little while for! Anyways, if you’ve got any questions or are interested in a commission, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, signal boosts appreciated! Thanks!

Contest: Depth and Perspective! - OpenLast update: 3/12/22 - More prizes!More Like This
In this contest your goal is to create a photo manipulation, or mixed media piece that focuses on creating an interesting depth of field and perspective!
That is your main goal! Pieces will be judged on overall concept and technique, but the use of depth and perspective will be that main focus! Meaning adding a few blurred out branches in the foreground might not cut it!
depth of field
the distance between the nearest and the furthest objects that give an image judged to be in focus in a camera.
the art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point.
- Must be created after March 11th

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.)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.
