:iconcelticstrm-stock:   :iconboldfrontiers:  :iconthy-darkest-hour:  :icondamselstock:   :iconfuchsiabud:  :iconkuschelirmel-stock: :iconannewipf:



:bulletgreen: Once your entry is completed, submit it to The-Stock-Directory’s  “Create Your Own Fantasy Contest” Folder.

(Note:You do not have to be a member of the group to submit to the contest folder. If for some reason you have difficulty submitting it, send the group a note and we will request it for you. :) Only contest entries will be accepted to the folder, however.)



:star: Official Contest Guidelines:



:bulletgreen: You must use at least two required stocks in your photomanipulation.  One stock from any gallery in The-Stock-Directory and one stock from  freestock.ca   (Note: freestock.ca  is a free stock resource website created by our  member boldfrontiers )

:bulletgreen: The contest entry should also include:

- A Landscape and Architecture stock (partial or whole)

- Either a model or an animal (or both)

:bulletgreen: Only one entry per person will be accepted.

:bulletgreen: Please put in your artists comments: "This was created for :iconthe-stock-directory: and :iconboldfrontiers:'s "Create Your Own Fantasy" Contest." This is so we know that you intend the submission to be your contest entry. :)

:bulletgreen: All stock resources must be properly credited to be accepted into the contest. (All entries will be checked for stock proper stock crediting before they are accepted. Don't know how to credit your stock resources? Check out this tutorial:fav.me/d4f4ymh  )

:bulletred: Considering that this contest is open to our youngest members, submissions containing nudity, sexual themes, or extreme violence/gore will not be accepted. Mild violence or battle scenes between good and evil are acceptable, but let's try to keep it PG-13 for our younger contestants.

:bulletred: All other stock must come from valid :devart: stock resources. (This means: No celebrities, copyrighted images, Google Image, Flickr, Photobucket, Wiki, etc. images will be accepted.)

You may think that the creation and sharing of stock and resources is a no brainer.  Clearly however its not, and there are a growing number of deviants who for some reason or another seem to not be able to grasp the basic principles.
As the last article we will be launching for Stock & Resources Project Educate week, we are going to attempt to lay it out for you in clear and easy to understand terms.
What YOU own
The gallery details for stock and resources read:
Gallery Info: Resources & Stock Images
Resources submitted by deviants for others to use in their own works and/or learn from.
Gallery Info: Stock Images

   Problems with Stock ResourcesLock, Stock, and Barrel
It unfortunately appears that it is once again time to talk about proper stock resources again. I'll be addressing this in this week's CEA Update but I wanted to discuss it a bit informally here first.
I have a hope that some day the issue of stock resources will get straightened out because it really is not as complicated or as confusing as many people are currently forcing it to be, but I guess the nature of the internet pushes people to simply pull the old smash and grab.
I'm going to run down a brief listing of the various problems and pit falls currently affecting the issue of stock resources in general.
The Old Switcheroo
Now we all know there are a good number of legitimate, legal stock resource sites out there with some being free and some being pay sites. A good chunk of you all can name them off the top of your head so I won't bother to list them myself.
Now regardless of which one we might be taking about, they all share pretty much a common ru

I've never entered a contest before, being a relative novice at manips. So . . . second silly question: will an underwater scene with coral etc count as the landscape requirement? There are several in the Aquatic gallery & since I'm planning an underwater scene (if it works!) including a landscape is going to be a bit tricky.

Can the model requirement be met by using a 3-D/render figure? Providing of course that the rest of the piece is manip in character. I'm having trouble finding human model poses to fit my concept!

Photomanipulations generally consist of two or more different stock photos to create a complete arwork. Programs used to create them are often either Adobe Photoshop or GIMP (there are probably more out there.)

Here is a good tutorial on creating a manip:
