We only accept stock!
The only group on deviantART collecting all-natural landscape stock, references, tutorials and brushes to help you create the perfect background for your artwork!
Please Take Note
We ONLY accept images that can be used for stock and/or artistic reference. We DO NOT accept photography that CANNOT be utilized by other artists.
If you decide to utilize anything found in our gallery, you MUST follow any/all rules specified by the owner of that resource. When in doubt, ASK the OP before using any of their resources.
Our aim here at LR is quality; not quantity or popularity. Please keep this in mind when you're considering submitting work to our gallery.
Aside from stock (which is primarily used for manipulations), we also accept pieces that are allowed to be used for "artistic reference".
We will not Accept:
Anything that cannot be used as stock and/or for artistic reference
Stock, brushes, and/or tutorials that do not feature landscapes
Most images that do not have any or enough of a foreground to place a subject
Any stock that is made with a computer program or something similar that is not photography, including most premades
Blurry, grainy, or overall poor stock
Stock that the Poster does not own (like a picture they saved from the internet and uploaded)
Stock that contains man-made structures (aside from the occasional fence or tiny building in the distance) OR people themselves
"Finished" pieces or works of art
Images with a resolution less-than 1000x1000 pixels.
Images that are not in the Resources and Stock Images Gallery (the proper category for stock) OR Images in other categories that do not state clearly in the description that they are stock images.
