Sunday Stock Wrap Up #2

Sunday Stock Wrap Up #2

I decided to turn my Sunday journal, into a little project called "Stock Wrap Up" which will feature resources & stocks from the past week. As I previously mentioned, stock is art, and they deserve the same recognition as any other artists. IMPORTANT: I will not feature .png cut-outs that have no source. I will not feature 3D models from any kind of games or a reliable source. I will not feature images with celebrities, or anything like that. For more information about stock and resources, please read the following guideline: Enjoy, fav, and create beautiful art! Brushes: Textures: Tutorials: Stock Images:

It is cruel of DA to ask for just 5 selections for a topic that has defined my entire existence on DeviantArt for the past 14 years.  How can you choose just 5 pieces?  How can 5 pieces show the diversity of stock and resources on this site?  The breadth of topics, places, locations and everything in between that are made available to the artists on this site?  The heart and soul that is shared with a single aim in mind, to support and enable the creativity of everyone involved to thrive. 5 cannot show the places we can imagine 5 cannot show the adventures and stories told 5 cannot express the joy of shared creation 5 cannot cherish the f

While seeing a lot of wonderful and inspirational work in art and book cover design, I am also seeing a lot of creative common licensed stock (That I am VERY familiar with due to 10 years of digital art and being a member of a LOT of art and stock communities). What I AM seeing does not add up… I am seeing creative commons licensed stock from websites such as deviant art, that do have restrictions and even require PAYMENT for publication use, used for premade covers. Payment from DA artists can range from $50 – $1000 for use of their stock in publication. It all varies on the use and print run. Yet some cover designers are selling

Frequently asked questions

Is there a licensing fee for commercial use of my stock? Yes, I charge DA artist a flat fee of $40. Publishing companies should message me for a quote.

Where did you get that Dress?
You can see my costumes list here fav.me/d3w187x

What Are you terms of use?
You can see my full terms here fav.me/d3zp3gi

Can I make a Request?
You can see my terms of requests here fav.me/d3xid8m

Why do you charge for Some stock?
Stock is expensive to create so I counter some of that expense by charging for some stock. Some of my dresses put me out hundreds of dollars! I also offer Exclusives to give artists stock that not everyone will have. The stock I feel could be easily abused I only offer as exclusives to control who uses the image.

If stock is so expensive why don't you buy cheaper clothing?
A dress that cost $300 dollars will last longer, look better, and make the stock unique. A halloween costume, while fun to look at, can not stand up against a work of wearable art. Halloween costumes can also look cheap and unauthentic as far as period styles go.

What equipment do you use?
You can see my studio and my room :) here vimeo.com/46995474
