Happy holidays deviant artists! The above stamp is my gift to you... The description has some links to all the deviantART stock resource providers that I know of. It should help you find the stuff you need for your art. Please be sure to check each stocker's policies for using their resources before you take anything that isn't yours. There are hundreds (maybe thousands?) of stockers on the list, so go nuts! If you know of any stock providers that aren't yet on the list, please feel free to let me know in a note.
Now... About you!! Do you celebrate any holidays during this time of year? What kinds of traditions (if any) do you look forwrd to? If you're not the festive type, what do you do while everyone else is decking their halls? Do the holidays ever bug you? Is it your happiest time of the year? What will you be doing this year?
Each time I update my journal I like to feature an artist that has used my stock in their art. This week's featured artist is...
CherishedMemories has a gallery full of various seasonal delights along with beautiful images that simply celebrate beauty. She is a talented digital artist with strong skills in the photo manipulation medium. Get into the holiday spirit by visiting her pages, and see all the magic her art has to offer!!
