These features are my way of thanking you for using my stock - I'm afraid, I can't feature all, but I will feature my personal faves in each issue. It's also a way to showcase some fellow stockers, so don't forget to scroll down for some stock art gems as well!
I try hard to keep up with my message center, but mostly, I'm buried. So I try to answer any questions asked (sometimes it'll take me a while, please be patient!) and I look at and fave all artwork made with my stock. I also try to leave comments now and again, but mostly, I'll just fave and run - please don't take that personally! I rather put up some new stock than copy-pasta some generic thank you message, I think you'll be in favour of that.
I haven't done one of these in far too long - so this is going to be a massive feature!

Out of Darkness into the Light CONTEST - CLOSED
As the days are getting shorter we do our best to lighten our mood with lamps and candles, trying to keep the darkness at bay. This darkness can be literal or more of a metaphor (for anxiety and depression), same with the light. For this contest, I want you to choose at least one of my stock images and create a photomanipulation with darkness and light. You do not have to limit yourself to images depicting night scenes with candles or lamps (though those will surely give you a great opportunity for high contrast images), you can also think about other light sources in other (dark) settings. For example moonlight, magic / fairy light, an eclipse, a dark cave, sunlight shining through trees, a sunset,... The only thing I would not recommend is a full on daylight scene since there are less opportunities for showing darkness when the whole setting already is so bright. Also do not limit yourself to just actual light and dark - you can also use the concept to convey a mood, an idea or a
Possible Contest + Features!
First off, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who commented or otherwise reached out after my last journal where I talked about feeling stuck and unmotivated. I really owe you all for encouraging me to find ways to get at least some motivation back - because I think it might've worked. I mean sure, we'll need to see if it also works long term, but I do feel a spark and my muse has at least woken from her coma ;) So I've had an idea: why not have a stock use contest (possibly with a bit of a broad but hopefully inspiring theme)? If you feel like this could interest you - but maybe only under certain circumstances etc, please head on over to my poll and participate in the discussion via comments, too! Nothing is decided yet, but I do have some ideas :aww: Stock Use Feature Stock Feature
