My stock is UNRESTRICTED (commercial or otherwise). Can be used to create stock, CSS backgrounds, stamps, icons, avatars, widget backgrounds, for brushes, wallpapers, manipulations, collages, digital art, traditional reference, etc. etc. Notification is optional! It is nice to receive credit, in order to advertise my site. If Notified, I'll look at the art and add it to my fave folder (it is a feature widget) that is for those who use my stock!
Some of my stock has been donated to my site. Feel free to notify the donator of use (in the artist description), albeit, sadly, karanua who has made several donations has passed away. I have his permission to post the stock via notes safely stored in my note folder.
DO NOT HOTLINK! Hotlinking steals bandwidth... my downloads, if not completely disabled, will now cost points, albeit the stock is still unrestricted.

I'm all he has WIP I Am All He Has:
I am the complete collection of one man's worldly possessions. I am all he has.
I am his placebo, without me he'd feel empty and lost, but since I am all he has, he doesn't mind risking his life to cross the street on a busy Thursday afternoon.
I am the portrait of his dead son. I am the bullet that killed his boy. I am the hate that provoked the bullet. I am the table in the morgue his maimed body was dumped on. I am the emptiness in the eyes of his shooter. I am the police files never sent. I am the rage and despair felt. I am the marriage the sorrow ruined. I am the taste of tears.
I am the used clothes he spent his last cent on. I am someone else's trash. I am torn. I am stained. I am ruined. I am uncouth. I am covered in crass slogans he doesn't agree with. I am his acceptance of failure.
I am his ex-wife's broken necklace, which he is taking to the pawnshop. I am his lost love. I am the letters he sent to each address of hers he knew, plead
Some things we should talk aboutThis journal is here to highlight, debug and bust some myths for you all of stuff that goes on ALL the time, and is in part spurred by some recent events that leave me somewhat baffled and perplexed over some of the behavior we've been recently seeing across the DA communities, particularly Stock & Resources, and Photomanip since we work so closely together (and its apparently time I wrote a new wall of text to you all.)
Every community has them. Those constant "issues" that make people angry and frustrated. Sometimes they can be easily solved with a little effort, and other times something just snaps and causes reactions that are far and away over the top. Here are some of our top faves.
Its time for everyone to take a nice soothing deep breath, its a long one!
There will be a test at the end.
OMG WHY DID YOU SEND YOUR REPLY TO PirateLotus-Stock and CelticStrm-Stock AS WELL??
Hello, welcome to TEAM Stock and Resources!
How to Stock 5- Gallery OrganizationWelcome to "How to Stock," a short series of articles on how to do some stock basics. We'll ask the big names in stock for their tips and opinions on how to get the best out of your stock shoot!
This fifth article is the special Stock & Resources Project Educate Week article. For this article, I asked SenshiStock and kirilee just one question about their galleries. Let's see what they said!
How do you keep your gallery organized, concise, and well-representing of you?
:iconsenshistock: SenshiStock says:
There's a few methods which I employ to try to manage the gallery as it gets larger. First, I use a series of folders to help sort poses into categories. There are a lot of folders, and sometimes images fit into more than one folder. For example, I might have a pose where I'm using a sword, but I'm also kneeling. This image would go both in the Sit and Kneel Drawing Poses f
Great stockers with fair rules around dAAdded 11 new stockers 18th of August 2014
As I am lately back with some manips, I thought its about time
to make a journal with some of my favourite stockers
Why they are my favourite? Well they are for several reasons!
Each of those who will be listed here, will have:
good to excellent quality,
Sizes which are usable beyond webpics shortest side at least 1200,
(that excludes cutouts, jewellery or any stuff you wouldn't need as primary object in your manip and seamless patterns)
Rules that allow commercial usage (at least on dA and on request for outside dA)
Rules that allow outside dA usage without being forced to slap the stockers name ON the artwork itself.
or Rules that are fully unrestricted
This includes stock-providers that take a few points for their stock, because I rather pay a few points if the TOU's & quality are grea
Stock Copyright - Shutterstock, iStock vs. DAFirst and foremost, I am not a lawyer. This journal contains my personal understanding of copyright law, terms and conditions for the mentioned websites as it relates to the stock and the artistic community here on DeviantArt (DA).
However, please feel free to share this journal.
Recently, one of DA’s most active and respected stock users came under fire for using off site (meaning outside DA) stocks in her work. As a “stocker”, I was surprised to hear of this - It was my understanding that this was common practice for artists to do.
It prompted me to look into the matter and dust off the little bit of arts law I studied whilst doing my post grad in Arts Management. (And I will save you the definition of IP law and the fact that copyright stays in effect for about 150 years, give or take a few. If you want to read a bit more about the basics in easy to und
Free Stock and Resources outside dAPlease fave if you find this journal useful
I updated and added new stuff on: March 9th 2014
before I started doing my own art, I was an avid incredimail email- stationary creator.
(All legal always with freeware, according to terms, with written permission etc)
For that reason I have collected a massive bunch of pages with stockphotos (free for profit reasons)
free & shareware fonts, plugin pages and so on.
I thought that it might be as useful for creating art for some of you.
The quality and resolution of the images varies so check yourself
I met several people who don't know much free stock outside dA..

first...the things written here in this journal, I did a long search. and I'm doing this to help and inform people about this subject.
and first I'll tell because I started getting interested in this subject. three things happened that made me pay attention in this detail.
1 - a long time ago, I used the stock from pixabay in some premades. and unfortunately I did not know that this site is not reliable, so I was denounced and I had all my contents posted in stock removed.
2 - I used a premade, but the person who did this premade used a stock that was not allowed to be used, and this premade was denounced and people who used also have been denounced and had my manipulation was moved to scrap for infringed copyright.
3 - I used a PNG, and after
