Hi guys,
  My family of 5 recently got evicted from our home. I'm trying to take commissions and small jobs here and there to save up for first/last/security for a new home. I'd like to add some custom stock packs or stock requests if anyone would like to donate towards my Go Fund Me. Anything is appreciated! Here is the link: www.gofundme.com/KoontzFamilyH…

By downloading, storing, or using any of my stock, you must read and agree to my rules and the rules of deviantART.com 

Thank you for using my stock. I once was very active on DA, but for the past 5 years I have been working full time as a photographer, and have been raising 3 wonderful children, and am very active in the body painting community in Central Florida. This takes up the majority of my time. So please accept my apologies for not responding right away. I do want to see your artwork, so please keep creating and sharing with me! I really appreciate all the hard work that you put into your art, keep up the great work!

Love, Daniella

I return after a year of being dormant as a stock artist. Sta.sh seems like this great new feature. Yet it won't give me previews, and it won't show thumbnails of any of the newly submitted stuff. I am aggravated beyond belief.... which is what caused me to go on my year hiatus from this site! GRRRR And on my art page, all the thumbnails come out in jacked up colors due to DA removing my color profiles. So I have all this great stock and all this great artwork, but who knows if I am even going to bother to continue sharing it here.

An Ode to Machina by Divinorum913 Rock-nouveau contest. by Redrupeethief ART NOUVEAU Lady and the Snail by ShatteredSwords :thumb105632194: Age of Innocence by oibyrd :thumb107677114:

Thank you who entered promptly by the first or second deadline. I'm not extending the contest so that your artwork isn't chosen. I am extending the contest because I would like the people who are donating their time, money, and items to feel like they have contributed to some new artwork on DA

Inspired by the last Smashing Pumpkins' tour album poster,

See image here</sub>

And their new DVD release artwork(coming out Nov 11 I'm so stoked)

See image here</sub>

The theme, if you so choose to accept, is to use Della-Stock model stock to create a piece of art (photomanipulation, digital painting, traditional art) in the style of Art Nouveau (if you are sick of Art Nouveau, you can also choose to do something Steampunkish). It doesn't have to be exactly Mucha-esc. Be creative. Be inspired by the old and the new. Extra points will be added if you use any Smashing Pumpkins songs and lyrics for inspiration.

Well it seems like the majority of people can't handle comparison. I was never saying that any of the images in this journal were unimaginative, uncreative, or bad in anyway. I was just comparing images between people who didn't edit the background, and people who focused more on the image as a whole instead of just a foreground and a background.

But since the majority of DA is reading this journal as " <-- these are crap ----> and these ones aren't " I'm just going to remove the one set of examples. I'm starting to get really peeved at the level of reading comprehension on this website. And how people can't take criticism on any level, even if it is positive.

And if it keeps up I am just going to whip out the "this sucks" on ya'lls butts, because if I can't give you a rung to step up on, I might as well just push you off the ladder and tell you to try again.

I have been nice, I have been helpful and I have given you all the pat on the back that you want. But it seems to me that a pat on the back is ALL you want.

So this goes out to everybody... beginner... intermediate... and advanced photomanipulators alike: " Your work sucks, try harder. You aren't a master of Photoshop, so get off your high horse."

Now do I really mean that? No. I'm just showing you what the real corporate world would say. Now.... I ask you again, do you think that I was being arrogant, or mean or hateful by my previous rendition of this journal?


Now about my waterfall background. I am either going to put it in storage, (childish I know) or you can follow this challenge of mine.

This is my personal challenge to you to BE more CREATIVE and spend more TIME on manipulating your image. When I took this photo, I took it to hang on my wall, to sell prints, to use as art. I didn’t have to share it with DA as stock. But I did, why? I shared it with the community because I knew some good would come of it. And I’m not knocking the beginners out there. I know that everybody needs to start learning somewhere, and I realize that you aren’t as fluid as the manipulators who have been doing it for years.

But please, if you are just starting out, practice a while before using this waterfall of mine. Or at least sleep on your work before submitting it to DA. Try to think of how you can take it that extra mile and really make it stand out. That way when you go to use it I will say to myself, “WOW!” instead of “Oh no, not again”

Would you like some examples of how this image has been used in a way that doesn't scream "Della-Stock's waterfall stock!" Check out these:

Untitled IV by FaerieNymph :thumb62867326: leave me here to love by buffydoesbroadcast Alone.

So, if you plan to download this waterfall image of mine to just slap some girl on the rocks, please don't. I don't feel that asking this is rude or in any way stifling the young budding artist in you. Why? the gallery description for photomanipulations:

"Gallery Info: Photomanipulation
The Photomanipulation section is dedicated to digital photographs that have undergone post processing and/or editing via the use of a graphical imaging software. The extent of manipulation should be prominent and noticeable in ways where it can be clearly distinguishable from the unaltered photograph.

When submitting to Photomanipulation, keep in mind deviantART's policies regarding source image reuse. You must have explicit permission to use images that are not your own or are not stock images, no matter how much time you spend manipulating them. It is recommended that you also state if you've used your own pictures to avoid misconceptions.

Please Note: All images submitted to this section should be altered in such way that it is clear you have used techniques other than a filter and/or alteration in the colour of the original. ... Also note that drawing or writing on top of a picture does not constitute as a photomanipulation...
"


THIS IS WHERE I NEED MY FELLOW STOCK ARTIST HELP

I'd like to have a special Issue of --> Stock Up <-- where each of us pick out our most used stock image (background) and show how it has been used properly. Please note me with your examples, and pile it on me. The more the merrier. I want to show people that they aren't limited by the photo to just plop a girl with wings on it. I want to show them that the background is just as useful to change and alter as the foreground.

So please take some time to look through your stock, look through your favorites, and send me as many examples as you can find. Even if it's not your own stock. If you know of good examples, please note me

Please note that I'd rather work with photo backgrounds, and not the pre-formed tubeish backgrounds that are already a manipulation of sorts. Thanks.

Judging


The way the judging worked is each judge was given a scorecard with 5 categories. They marked each category with a one through a 5 based on these five attributes; Originality, Stock Quality, Modernized Costume, Creativity, and Story Told. The highest that you could score with each judge was 25 points, and the highest all together would be 125 points.



1st Place
intergalacticstock's Nancy Drew entry
With a total score of 116 points out of a possible 125 points:



intergalacticstock combines different poses with different props. With a touch of old school, her updated outfit says "Nancy Drew" to a T. If you read the history of Nancy Drew she is always evolving in the books, with even things like her car being updated since the 30s. A great character choice to do a stock story of! The quality of the stock is top notch and we call all see this being used in lots of different ways.



"Nancy Drew was depicted as an independent-minded teenager, usually sixteen, but gradually aging to eighteen by the mid 1940s (this was changed when the original books were later revised; she is always eighteen) who has graduated from high school. Apparently affluent, she maintains an active social, volunteer, and sleuthing schedule, as well as participating in athletics and the arts, but is never shown as working for a living or acquiring job skills."

2nd Place
PersephoneStock with Hades and Persephone
With a total of 113 out of a possible 125

On Opposite Sides by PersephoneStock Internal Struggle by PersephoneStock Hades and Persephone by PersephoneStock After Dinner Mint by PersephoneStock :thumb50887391:


PersephoneStock was the only entry with more than one person. Although the background is a little distracting, it can be worked into the storyline in whatever type of art that it could be used for. The poses and costumes are just great. What a great mythological couple to pick out for stock photos. It is  rich story to get inspiration for stock photos.



"Persephone lived a peaceful life before she became the goddess of the underworld, which, according to Olympian mythographers, did not occur until Hades abducted her and brought her into the underworld. She was innocently picking flowers with some nymphs—and Athena and Artemis, the Homeric hymn says—, or Leucippe, or Oceanids— in a field in Enna when he came, bursting up through a cleft in the earth; the nymphs were changed by Demeter into the Sirens for not having interfered. Life came to a standstill as the devastated Demeter (goddess of the Earth) searched everywhere for her lost daughter. Helios, the sun, who sees everything, eventually told her what had happened."

</b>3rd Place</b>
Iardacil-stock with Mari as Snow White
With 105 points out of a possible 125. There were two others who scored 105, but the tiebreaker was that 2 people voted for one of the images from this story to be the Grand Prize.



Iardacil-stock's stock photos are just so infectious. They make you smile. The long red hair and the beautiful white dress are very different from the Disney ideal that most people think of when you say "Snow White". The stock is on an easy to cut out background. There is good use of an everyday prop that also goes along with the story.



"the Queen made a poison apple, and in the disguise of a countrywoman offered it to Snow White. She was hesitant, so the Queen cut the apple in half, ate the white part — which had no poison — and gave the poisoned red part to Snow White. She ate the apple eagerly and immediately fell into a deep, magical sleep. When the dwarfs found her, they could not revive her, so they placed her in a glass coffin, thinking that she had died."

If you are unsure about the meaning of this, please send me a note, or look through my favorites

:new: As I'm getting older, I'm just getting really tired of the whole blood and gore stuff. So if you don't mind finding other models for any deviations dealing with blood. You can still use my other items, textures, and backgrounds and stuff, just not my model stock. Please and thank you. :new:

:bulletred:Please do not use my stock for artwork that depicts hatred for any particular race, religion, celebrity, or use my stock to show hatred for or to insult my friends or I .
