Closing my STOCK account (kind of)

As you could notice, I have been pretty absent from DA lately. Which is a good sign actually! I work as a graphic designer in a pretty cool and sweet company... So many other cool stuff is also happening! 

I have no time left for DA and I have no other choice but to quit doing stock photos. 

NOOOOOOOOO

DON'T PANIC! I will stop making new stock, true. But the old stock will remain here as a free ressource for artists from all over the world. 


How will this work?
Since I won't really be present on DA anymore (sometimes I will come to say hello and check if everything is ok).
  • What you see is what you get
    The full version (high resolution) of my stock won't be accessible anymore. So no more DA notes or requests. If you send me a note, I might answer... far far away in time.
  • Same rules as before
    Indeed! Even though you can't get full rez stock anymore, you can still use my stock as a reference for your drawings. I will update my general rules very soon. 
  • Credits and comments
    I might not be on DA very much anymore, but I will still come and check your awesome drawings from time to time. It's always a pleasure to see what you guys and girls can come with!

Now that all of this has been said, I wanted to say THANK YOU for your support! You folks are the best and I really enjoyed being part of your community. 


On this note, have fun with all of your projects!

So much happened during this contest! A disqualified artwork. A forgotten contestant... AWESOME contributors! More than 48 entries! AND such great support from all of you folks! Actually, the best contest I've ever had!

Ok, time to get to business! Cause I guess all of you want to know who are the chosen ones :D

 

INFO ON THE CONTEST/RESULTS

Remember; the contest was about originality and not about skills alone. The winners caught my eye with a great composition and a good idea to show off. Also only finished artwork were picked.

1st place

Oppression by hana-tox

 

This entry threw me off my chair (no worry, I'm fine and well). Not only by its beauty... but also by its story. Everyone in his or her life feels at least once, this sentiment of oppression which can give a very bad aftertaste of life imprisonment.  The way this sentiment is portrayed in this artwork is worthy of a Shakespear; dramatic yet beautiful. I love the fact the artist mixed two poses to make one of a hell combo, creating something emotional and unique. The coloring is powerful in contrasts, showing the dark as the pit of hell and the light as the hope of getting out... reaching the end of a nightmare. The description added by the artist will bring you to another country, a place where wearing a mask is the way to survive.

Go, and take the time to read the true story behind this artwork!

2nd place

Embers by StarstruckJanna

 

I have been really impressed by the design of this OC, but even more impressed by the story it tells! The mask becomes part of his personality, adding a fine background to his story. The ripped clothes make us want to know what happened to him... or the others around him. The mystical ambiance offers mystery. Is the sword connected to him? Maybe it's even alive! It is the kind of artwork that leaves us wondering, imagine, just like when we happen to read a great book. On the technical aspect, the details are astonishing and so well done, there is even vintage textures featured on the collar and sleeves. The upside down pose was such a great idea, and a very unique way to use the stock pose. Well done!

 

3rd place

Mystery of Starlight by IvieMoon

 

Magical, beautiful and majestic. These words came out of my minds when I first saw this artwork. Not only it features beautiful watercolor skills, the framing has been cleverly thought and designed. I adore the way the skin has been colored, but also all the little details that were added to the background.. and this, without breaking the simplistic overall style. The fact her face is missing, gives us the opportunity to imagine and wonder who is this glowing lady in the sky. The soft, yet powerful colors really brings us somewhere else... in her world maybe! Wonderful work!


______ Special mentions _____

Face Reality by MillionPM
This artwork can really make one unconfortable. That's actually why it is so charming!

Darkness Inside by dreamswoman
