My Stock Rules

My Stock Rules

My rules are simple: :reading: ~whiteroseplz (https://www.deviantart.com/whiteroseplz) Write "paintresseye" and post my icon for anything in deviantArt ~ in your artist comments = CREDIT MY NAME :bulletred: for icon, :icon paintresseye : [no spaces] :iconwhiteroseplz: Give a LINK BACK to the exact deviation. Leave your link ON THE :pointr: STOCK PAGE :bulletred: please.  That works nicely.  If used outside of dA you can still create a link back here.  Please respect the effort it takes to create and maintain a stock resource gallery.  Stay organized and take the time to do at least that much. REMEMBER --> :gallery: People browsing my gallery may want to take a look at what

Devious Journal Entry

~sparklesplz (https://www.deviantart.com/sparklesplz) :iconsparklesplz::iconsparklesplz: :iconsparklesplz::iconsparklesplz::iconsparklesplz: I discovered a wonderful collection --> It is a directory for free stock accounts. You will find it here: http://lawrencededark.deviantart.com/journal/8061587/ I am finally getting to use stock accounts for my traditional art. My first creative surge from this opportunity will appear soon, hopefully.  All my energy is currently being sucked into a solo exhibit that I will open on October 1st. Then I'm helping out with a fund-raiser.  After that, near my one year anniversary with this account, I'll get active again.  I have a new ca

Sorry I've been neglecting paintresseye

Sorry I've been neglecting paintresseye

Sent my NEW laptop off for repair today.  It hasn't worked properly from the beginning.  ACER brand, just in case any one wants to be warned.  Perhaps I got one with a "congenital birth defect" -- it was a defective one, in any event. I look forward to the day when I can get back to rambling my imagination and the world around me to bring things here.  I always enjoy seeing where other artists take things after I pitch them out to you. I appreciate each one who has used my stock.

Stop in to see the incredible work of vm0572

This artist has found the most beautiful women and placed them in these amazing, fresh scenarios.  This is a "must see" journal feature. I want to give you a little demonstration of how a top notch photo-manipulator can work with the possibilities in stock.  He creates wonderful images by pulling the photography together with imagination and skill.  I have been honored that he placed these amazing scenarios against the backdrop of... ~whiteroseplz (https://www.deviantart.com/whiteroseplz) MY SKY PHOTOGRAPHY :bow: :iconbwavoplz: :bow: In this feature I haven't shown all the other stock used, because all you have to do is click on his artwork.   He displays everything

Still practicing the basics

The little I've done with digital enhancement, and adding text, has been great fun.  I chose a different watercolor face from my traditional paintings for use as the paintresseye avatar. I have also used this face in other ways.  Here is one example: :thumb153605158:  Plus, she honors the Orange-yellow Group which is a group for whom I am a contributor. I still plan to present the third artist I selected to run a "Solo Gallery Show" in this journal.  It should be out soon.  Hope I'm building some suspense.  His work is beautiful and inspiring.

My new avatar icon is made from one of my watercolor paintings in my traditional gallery.  http://melanierogers.deviantart.com/ Guess this makes me the featured artist for this journal. I'm planning to get busy wearing my traditional artist cap ~wizardhatplz (https://www.deviantart.com/wizardhatplz) :iconlovevalentineplz: ...over the next few days. I will still send out a few new photographs for my gallery here.  It is possible I may even go on a little photo shoot this afternoon.

Featuring Matiasromero and His Choices For Stock

Featuring Matiasromero and His Choices For Stock

The featured artist in this journal is matiasromero, from Brazil.  He has been active in dA for seven years and knows his way around the artform of Photomanipulation, as well as the stock galleries found here in deviantart.  He also creates his own stock imagery, typography, brushes, cut-outs...he is a man of many, many talents. His first featured deviation is: ~thumbplz (https://www.deviantart.com/thumbplz):thumb144671381: This is a presentation of his works, along with the stock providers he chose for the items combined in his imaginative series called... A DAY IN THE LIFE. I was honored :iconthank-youplz: He used my stock in the following works. matiasromero =

I've chosen three artists

I plan to begin a special feature series tomorrow.  I have "searched the world over" and want to present the work of each one individually. Looking forward to it.  I will give each one a SOLO SHOW here in my journal.  I am also going to feature the other stock providers they have used in each featured piece. I enjoy seeing all the images straight out of the resource accounts.  Then I appreciate even more the imagination and skill these artists have used to bring them together. Check out my journal history for a look at this art genre presented this way.  I have enjoyed creating a setting for their work, maybe YOUR work. :iconsleepingnearp
