Introducing PirateLotus-Stock

:iconpiratelotus-stock:

Hello, my name is Erin! I’m a stock artist, seamstress, crafter, and baker, among other things, but stock is my main focus here on DeviantArt. I have been on DA since 2007, where I first learned about what stock is and had the opportunity to use stock from some of the amazing artists here. I wanted to join in on the fun, so in 2008, I made my own stock account where I’ve been partying ever since. I love the stock community! Everyone is very welcoming, patient, and giving, and I’m so proud to be a part of this group of people.

In 2012, I was given the opportunity to be a CV for my favorite gallery and I eagerly joined the team. Getting to work with people from different galleries gave me an appreciation for the other parts of DA that I never would have had otherwise. I got to hear about troubles and successes from all the other galleries, all in one place, and even help out a bit.

It was rough at times, as it is a lot of responsibility, but I would definitely recommend applying if you love your gallery as much as I do mine! Not only did I get to steer my gallery in the right direction, but I met some wonderful people and got to work closely with them and have a broader view of the site as a whole. It was a great experience and I am so thankful I got to have it. I’ve made friends from all around the world, staying up late talking to them, even going to other countries to visit some of them! DeviantArt has opened the doors to some fantastic opportunities I never expected.

Thank you so much for choosing me for this honor! Interacting with the community is my favorite part of being on DeviantArt, and I feel like this recognition is showing me I am doing something right :)



September 2016

Deviousness Award Winner

PirateLotus-Stock is standout member of DeviantArt’s stock community for the past nine years, due to her friendly demeanor and many contributions. With nearly 2,000 stock images, she’s provided invaluable resources for her fellow artists to use in creating their own artwork. In 2012, PirateLotus-Stock joined the CV team, where she contributed to her favorite community by moderating the stock gallery.

During her time as a volunteer, she went above and beyond to educate the community as a whole to the value of stock resources, as well as posting educational tips and tricks. While she’s no longer a community volunteer, she still finds ways to engage the community through stock-inspired contests. We’re delighted to award such a positive light in our community the Deviousness Award for September 2016!

Community Quotes

:iconmercurycode: :iconnull-entity: :iconcassy-blue: :iconelandria: :iconkingmancheng: :iconaeirmid: :iconcelticstrm-stock: :iconsenshistock:

PirateLotus-Stock has not only been a huge inspiration with her work as a Community Volunteer, I remember her to be a huge help with any inquiry I might have had getting more involved in the stock and resources community. She would be very quick to reply and always made me feel comfortable about asking things I felt like I needed guidance or assistance with. I’m sure that she was and still is a go-to-person for advice and help to countless other community members.”

She is very deserving of the award, for her constant work and contact with the stock community. As a fellow stocker every time we talk she is a delight and her kindness shows through in her replies, stock and welcomeing smile. Should we ever meet in person I would not be shocked to see her as her “Vine Fairy” or some other pirate getup.”

PirateLotus-Stock has been a pillar of the stock and resources community through her dedicated service as a cv and her fantastic gallery of reference images. Erin has always been helpful and friendly. I was very glad when I found she was my community volunteer mentor, I knew I’d be in good hands due to her passion for the stock community. Erin’s journal series on how to create stock is a must read for anyone interested in getting started in stock. I’ve always loved her star wars images, they’re dynamic and accurate to the films!”

Erin, like her gallery is a treasure. Her dedication and support of our collective community who use, create and share resources and stock is a constant source of inspiration. I’m so proud to see her getting the Deviousness Award for September which recognizes her achievements and willingness to help others. Shes an amazing person and friend, her kindheartedness and positive attitude in the face of all challenges is nothing short of amazing. Congratulations Erin!”

PirateLotus-Stock is very well deserving of a deviousness award. In her many years as member she has a strong gallery of work and and has carried on her passion in the form of a community volunteer. She is certainly an inspiring figure in the community, thank you for your great service to us and of course a big hearty congratulations to you!”

Erin is a force to be reckoned with and an amazing friend. She radiates positivity and can always find the bright side of even the darkest situation. What’s more, she inspires the DeviantArt community through her interesting contests and challenges. DeviantArt is a better, more positive place because of Erin. I am so honored to call her my friend.”

PirateLotus-Stock is an incredible stock provider, friend, and inspiration to the community. Her tireless work as a Community Volunteer and beyond has been a great asset to Stock & Resources. Her creativity and talent had always been something that I looked up to, and it’s been so awesome getting to know her as a friend. I am so proud and happy that she’s being featured with September’s Deviousness. Erin is everything that the Deviousness Award is all about!”

PirateLotus-Stock is a great member of the community! She’s supportive, encouraging, and always trying to help others. Her How To Stock series has been very useful to many deviants new to the Resources and Stock community, and of course her many, MANY resources are incredible and super useful! Congrats!!”


Congratulations to PirateLotus-Stock!
