What is stock?
Stock photos are the kind of photos that other artists have provided for us to use as inspiration/base of our works. The most popular way of using stock is in photomanipulations and digital paintings. However vexel artists seem to love stock too! There are many wonderful works based on stock photography in the vexel world.
Stock is inspirational and helpful, especially if you're having problems with, for example, anatomy.
Vexel artists really like using portrait stock images, most of the popular vexels are portraits. But objects, animals, vexicles seem to be quite popular too.
If you ever want to use stock in your art always follow artist's rules.
Here is a collection of amazing vexels that were based on stock images.
This is just a small collection of vexels inspired by stock, hope you liked it!

Vexels- what are they?
Gallery Descriptions and Miscats The definition To understand what Vexels really are you must get to know Vexel's bigger brother- Vector. Both can be created with a tool called Pen tool or Lasso Tool (or similar- depending of the graphic software) using layers of shapes filled with solid colour or gradient BUT Vectors are created using vector layers while Vexels use raster layers. Vexel = Vector + Pixel To simplify: Vectors are scalable (you can enhance or scale them down and all shapes will stay sharp and crisp) and Vexels are not (when you expand a Vexel you can see pixelation, as rasters are based on pixels). Vector expanded to 300% V
