:dalove: These are all the Daily Deviations I chose during October 2010 for dA's Resources & Stock Images Gallery. There are also a few avatars tossed in because I took over picking icon DDs for a few days while BurgerBunny was away.

Grey Magus by WearManyHats

Grey Magus by ~angelusconna is a font with a lot of versatility. It hints at elegance, borders on haunting, and almost suggests boldness without overstating it's charm. The characters are nicely spaced, and it offers legibly edgy text.

Cast Level 5 Fireball - 4 by mjranum-stock

So elegant and moving that it defies words: Cast Level 5 Fireball - 4 by *mjranum-stock!

Hazel 6 by liam-stock

Hazel 6 is part of a series of outstanding stock photos by =liam-stock. The contrast of orange hair and pumpkins against the dark hues really makes this image pop in such a delightful way.

How to Draw a Jellyfish by Mysticalpchan

Suggester's words: This extensive tutorial doesn't just answer How to Draw a Jellyfish. *Mysticalpchan teaches quite a bit of the anatomy despite how 'simple' the jellyfish's body we are lead to believe. In addition, she also walks through how to digitally paint different species of jellyfishes. Let me tell you that this shall be my first tutorial to turn to if I ever need to refer to jellyfishes and I hope it will be yours too.

Bee FREE Avatar by Limette-X

Bee FREE Avatar by =Limette-X combines the wonderful qualities of adorable drawing, sensational shading, and smooth animation into one happy, little avatar! And (perhaps best of all) it's free to use at deviantART. (Usable dA version here.)

le Grand Saut by Jellyka

le Grand Saut by *Jellyka is an eye-pleasing font with lots of character. Not only is it suitable for a wide variety of different projects, but the typeface is beautifully formed and evenly spaced.
(Featured by FantasyStock)

Mummy 7 by NHuval-stock

The sheer creepiness of Mummy 7 by =NHuval-stock makes this a particularly wonderful stock photo for Halloween or any other time when this classic monster may be required. The model's makeup and pose are perfect for creating the iconic mummy scene.

31 DAYS SCARE-FREE: Cute Witch by kaitquefait

31 DAYS SCARE-FREE: Cute Witch is part of =KaitlinLenaghan's series of free 2010 Halloween avatars. This wicked little witch is full of boo-tiful detail and imagination!

Bloodhewn flying by BronzeHalo

*BronzeHalo's Bloodhewn flying amazes me with its cunning attention to detail in this tiny animation. It's inspiring when an artist can turn hours of work into a seemingly effortless feat of flight.

..:: My New Avie by Aminako

..:: My New Avie by *Aminako is such an adorable anime character with lovely shading. Best of all, the Pachirisu's puppy eyes emote a contagious, joyful emotion. All together now: "Awwwwww!"

Hand 009 by ISOStock

Hand 009 by =ISOStock -- Suggester's words: "Great stock shots, with nice white background and nice details."

Free Dragon Flying Avatar by SasoriDanna94

Perhaps it's because of the cute animation, or maybe it's the irresistible baby face... Whatever the reason, Free Dragon Flying Avatar by ~SasoriDanna94 has made its mark as one of dA's most beloved free avatars for the past two years. It may be a relatively simple design, but the animator succeeded in bringing this mini dragon to life! Not only is it available for anyone to wear at deviantART; it may also be used as a template (with credit) for your own avatars.

Lake Girl 07 by Lynnwest-Stock

Suggester's words: Lake Girl 07 by *Lynnwest-Stock is just awesome! Both the photographer and the model did an outstanding job with capturing this one (due to the difficulty). And the background is just fantastic! In my opinion this deviation will inspire many people and it should be seen by all dA community!

Suggester's words: I really think Tutorial: Preparing Lineart by =Shinerai is useful for people who feel more comfortable doing their line art traditionally, and not having to re-line it in PS. I've never seen another tutorial like it, so it's not only clear and instructive, but also unique!

Suggester's words: Hawk head different angles ref by *Ciameth is very thought out, and has to be the most detailed and thorough collection of angle shots for one animal that I've ever seen! I'd imagine this would be big help to a lot of people.

Renilicious's avatar
A really great mix of resources... though I've personally never seen avatars as a resource... they're sorta like smilies. Cute, but wholly useless.
FantasyStock's avatar
There are a few avatars tossed in because I took over picking icon DDs for a few days while ^BurgerBunny was away.
TehAngelsCry's avatar
I suppose they're useful for people who don't know how to make their own little avatar.
